The first time I listened to this I underrated it a bit but on my third listen it really clicked for me. The instrumentation especially is gorgeous and makes you feel like floating away

Fav song: Alone, Omen 3

Other great songs: Cellular, Stoned Again, Comet Face, Perfecto Miserable, Airport Antenatal Airplane, Theme For The Cross, Underclass, Please Complete Thee

Least fav song: (Don't Let The Dragon) Draag On

Certainly didn’t expect this to be as good as it was, especially seeing reviews made by others, but as a whole it was a pleasant surprise. Maria has a great voice which fits the spacey synths and drums perfectly.

Fav song: Baby You Have Travelled For Miles Without Love In Your Eyes

Other great songs: Turn, Silence, The Prophet, I Live At Night, Depression Tourist

Least fav song (excluding interludes): Death Engine

Another big disappointment, but not completely unlistenable.

Seeing how good the singles were to this album I expected it’d be atleast a 7.5/10 and perhaps one of the best albums this year, it looked like the 1975 would go a more ”alternative” route on this album than their previous releases, it all depended on the album tracks, and well, it was a mess all over. Some were quality songs, though, it wasn’t all bad.

My biggest issue with the 1975 isn’t their lyrics, ... read more

Following up two modern classics is hard. It’s even harder to try to evolve as an artist, if people still (rightfully) praise the songs you wrote when you were younger. This album is a clear example of this.

I don’t seem to know what happened here, exactly. It is by far not a bad record, it’s just... underwhelming. It’s clear that Will sees himself as constantly evolving and wanting to change up sounds but it doesn’t work in his favour at all. ... read more

Sounds like nothing else I’ve heard, not even from Animal Collective. It’s hauntingly beautiful, gives off a feeling of nostalgia and comfort, but is simultaneously, in a way, sad. Avey has an amazing voice and makes good use of synths and shit and if there’s one album that shows Panda’s drumming skills it’s this one.

Fav track: Alvin Row

Great tracks: All of them

Whilst outdoing Good Kid, m.A.A.d City seemed like a difficult task that seems to be exactly what Kendrick has done here. To Pimp a Butterfly is a dark, eye-opening lyrical masterpiece dealing with Kendrick’s (and a lot of African Americans’ in general) struggles with identity, racism, crime, the economy, and pretty much living in a very much flawed United States as a whole. It’s the kind of album that will be talked about for generations to come.

So the first one wasn’t too good eh. Well, good that they released a second album the same year, which was...
Well, worse. But not by a lot. It has the same problems the debut had, but a bit more forgettable and bland if anything. Again the covers are the highlight of the record. I can’t see a reason to really return to it, unless you grew up with the album, or simply like this kinda music. I don’t. I’ve heard the one after this is good tho, but we’ll see.

It was good for what it was but not something I think I’ll be revisiting.

No fav and least fav tracks this time, the album isn’t really song based

I have several questions, most of which reveal around why these guys are famous, why they all sound the same, why the lyrics to each track are so strikingly similar and even so very similar to the guy’s collaborators, whether or not any of them will ever make a song without once referring to the fact that they own a gun etc etc, went in expecting nothing, got nothing, and in the end had 20 minutes of my life wasted for a few cheap laughs (Don’t get me wrong, the dude has a good ... read more

I loved this. Apart from the great instrumentation and vocals it's kinda summery and nostalgic, which works extremely well blended with Animal Collective's songwriting and musical style.

Fav track: Did You See The Words

Other great tracks: Grass, The Purple Bottle, Bees, Banshee Beat, Loch Raven, Turn Into Something

Least fav track: Flesh Canoe

Someone keep me up to date. Is this meant to be a joke? I honestly can't tell. It reminds me of the Pink Guy albums in one way or another. It's atrocious, but at times laughably so. A+ for effort

it’s kinda one of those albums only Animal Collective could make. Filled with wonky, experimental, yet beautiful sounds, interesting song structures, and heartwarming vocals. Gets a bit forgettable at times, but, even at their most boring Animal Collective simply isn’t boring at all.

Fav track: In The Flowers

Other great tracks: My Girls, Summertime Clothes, Daily Routine, Bluish, Guys Eyes

Least fav track: Taste

Time to delve into the discography of the most acclaimed musical act of all time. Were they really as good as people claim them to be?

The debut album doesn’t really give me that impression. Most the songs on it are very forgettable, blandly written, and I assume not much time were spent on them (it should tell you something that my favorite track on this record was a cover song). It has some high points of decent pop rock, but, I assume most the acclaim this album has recieved was ... read more

Better than I expected! It gets a bit stale and repetitive at times but overall I quite liked it. It’s like the ”has some happy songs that I’ll keep listening to” type vibe, not more to add than that

Fav track: Wake Up Call
