Doesn’t hit quite like the other two LP’s but we do get some vintage stilts magic on here. It’s been a long five years since this dropped, would love another one from this band real bad.

This album cover reminds me of the photos I used to take back before I understood exposure.

I like this more than I was expecting. Not that I don’t like tweedy, but I haven’t loved the more recent Wilco output.

This is possibly my favorite tweedy thing this decade.

If I don't like something, I don't score it. I tend to only listen to things that I think will be in my general wheelhouse. I use this scoring system more as a way to put my favorite things in order, rather than placing a score on how good/quality I think something is. I've been obsessed with music since I was a kid, and wish I would have started on this site years ago but what you gonna do. Oh, and I only score albums, no singles.

Yes. It's coming from my favorite Nirvana song. I've been using this name more than five years on many platform.

ey, yes. pretty much stucked in his own sample-formula, but with no real magic in the tracks's structures this time. his weakest in my opinnion. still worth a listen, mainly because of the sleek sound design.

Wow, rarely have I seen an acoustic performance that intense. Was really into the lyrics on that track and his debut did catch my eye when I looked at his profile so I'll 100% get around to it. The Voidz album is wild, took me a few listens but I ended up loving it. It is all over the place though. I'd recommend the new Loma record if you haven't heard, a crucial folk release this year IMO, listening to it around dusk in a calm woodland area is a damn nice experience.

lol I put that album off for so long as the cover and title made me think I was in for twelve cheesy three-minute by the numbers country/pop rock tracks. Glad I gave it a shot, really into A Love Song and Loved Straight to Hell especially. Decided I'd pick a few people on the site who seem to have good input and knowledge and listen through their top scored 2018 albums to make sure I miss as little as possible this year. Started with you so look out for a few more in the next couple weeks

Always listening and tinkering with scores. Basically a curated list of music.
Some days I'm an 8.8, some a 6.7
