Pink Noise's 80's infected electropop may lack variety or surprises; but it's energy, pulsing rhythms, and flashes of 80's (evoking everyone from MJ and JJ to Whitney to Genesis), sneaks up on you

Standouts: Conditional, Magical, Pink Noise, Before The Dawn

Dropouts: What Matters

Country-fried, garage rockabilly psych rock that ranges from sunny to dark and dusty

Standouts: Hell In Texas, Stuck In The Morning, Never Look Back, Shadow, Crypt, Ticket

Dropouts: Holy Roller

Maximum Sorrow! is a little stiff and inconsistent in comparison to 2017's Grow Up, but it does show up some driving rhythms and expressive vocals. Musically an odd but mostly successful mix of punky old school Smiths , Sugarcubes era Bjork, and an occasional Pink Floydish bassline.

Standouts: What You're Scared Of, Fault, Personality Girlfriend, Armageddon, Fine in the Family

Dropouts: none

Beatlesque and sentimental indie pop, just nothing new here to get excited about

Standouts: Empty Playgrounds, Broken Swings (Demo), Lonesome No More

Dropouts: The Let Down

Private Reasons is a scattered and awkward mess, but it still works. Somehow the Beach Boys meets the TikTok generation psychedelic dream pop mixed in a blender with Latin jazz, classical, and video games sounds grows on you

Standouts: Jory II, Brio 81, Loop Joy, Step Out Of The Light, Far Beneath Your View, Little Season II, Recife, Lafeta Uti, Fuzzy Soul
,
Dropouts: Lafeta Uti, Jory I

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
