I think this is absurdly overrated, while still being a good album. Mitski has a knack for solid production ideas and her vocals are angelic, and her writing remains top notch, however I just have to say her execution was super off the mark from what I think could've been in my top 5.
Ian Curtis had been a troubled man, and it did show deep down in the context of this album. It's haunting, it's gripping, and it's audio pain. It's hard to digest after each listen I'd assume as anyone moves forward.
This exists, and its the most trippy and uncoordinated thing I've heard to date. 11 minutes for an album? Okay, but I wasn't planning on experiencing a series of temptation to slam my head through the thickest wall possible. Yet the chaos is extremely intriguing.
