My Agenda shows a certain urgency through an explosive and intense album that hasn't finished making people talk. If the first one drew their portrait and exposed their strong potential, this second one is an exceptional dive into their world and their struggles. It is an open-hearted album, an experience retracing their personality through something even more raw than in the past, like a digest of raw feelings and energies.
Born in Houston Dorian Electra is one of the modern and innovative artists, but also a human of the 21st century, who is not afraid to go to the end of their ideas and convictions, without fear of making a fool of himself. It's no secret that 2019 is mainly marked by sensations like the duo 100 Gecs and of course Dorian Electra, symbol of a Bubblegum Bass as crazy as it is zany, and then finally addictive because of its creativity and depth. Although the opinions are still to this day still contrasted on theire first album Flamboyant, there are a few things that everyone agrees on, is that Dorian Electra are a different artist, who has their own musical paw. Overall I didn't know what to expect from this second project, because in reality I had already taken a slap on each cheek when I listened to Flamboyant. In spite of my initial reluctance towards it, I ended up at the son of the listeners getting to know and understand it, a key factor when you want to analyse it properly.
Logically it is the same for this album, maybe even more so because it leaves less room for their interpretation. Dorian have opted for a short album in order to touch more directly. Reduced by 20 minutes compared to their previous one and with more collaborators, Dorian preferred to call on prominent guests to support their ideas. A good thing in itself, because despite all the humor, the rocanbosleque and the strands of folly that emanate from their music, there is always some deep hidden under a thin layer of eccentricity. When you think about it, the large number of guests is not disturbing because they fit in very well with the universe, it is a mutual understanding that is felt. From the very beginning of My Agenda, Dorian propel us into the middle of a gladiatorial battle in the middle of an arena, in the wrong arena far away. There are very few fallbacks, the ideas fuse and follow one another. Finally, despite the boiling, Dorian don't bother, they aim just and short which allows this dense content to melt into the mass and be pleasant to listen to. If I still don't have the important answer as to whether this album will stand the test of time with all its sparks on both sides, My Agenda has its flaws and limitations, but ironically that's also what makes it beautiful. Personally, I still have a preference for Flamboyant.
