Bon Iver - 22, A Million
100
[100] IT MIGHT BE OVER SOON

I struggle to find words to explain what I have believed to be one of the most artistic arrangements to have ever been pieced together, surely my favorite one above all others. I hope in at least attempting to find words someone might understand, and while it seems like some cop-out to begin my most important review, I just have to preface saying that those 34.17 minutes are completely and utterly about feeling now, devoid of vocabulary.

I also see no relevance ... read more

Black Country, New Road - Ants From Up There
100
[100] ~~~A/C ALBUM~~~

The display of emotion on this record is impeccable, from Issac Wood’s effectual vocals to the backing dynamic instrumentation that draws in and out seemingly at his whim, though what I’m actually hearing really is just an ultimate understanding from each member of the band as to what they want to develop. This theme of orchestration isn’t new to the genre of art rock, where I initially found this to rip on many sounds of Arcade Fire and of sounds from ... read more

Björk - Fossora
92
[92] With literal earth tones lyrically and in its sound, "Fossora" shows Björk still has it, the record a more personal cut as it divulges many aspects of her current story and where she has come from.

Right from the get-go, the album opens with a very uniquely blended spread of instruments that continues throughout the record. The strong presence of older bell and woodwind instruments, I believe the bass clarinet being most prominent, juxtaposed with her well rehearsed ... read more

Weiland - Vices
90
[90] Weiland's second record moves headstrong into synth-pop following its popular resurgence within the decade, its alternative style of pop making it some of the most interesting work within its genre during its time.

The synth-pop revival is something most by now have been familiarized with by its extremely large presence in modern popular music of the past few years, something I wonder more and more may just continue to develop throughout the next few. Weiland takes this on for an entire ... read more

Beach House - Once Twice Melody
85
[85] Within a story told over multiple chapters, “Once Twice Melody” is yet another great dream-pop record from Beach House, though similarly to previous releases, doesn’t push that mastered sound any further than usual while their sound slowly morphs solely into dream-pop.

Beach House’s newest record, a compilation of EPs released one each month, is their largest release to date and exists in an interesting space as each chapter holds a title named after one of the ... read more

JID - The Forever Story
90
[90] "The Forever Story" sees JID reflect on his life and who/what has stayed around him over fast-switching instrumentals to metaphorically convey the many sides of this history he has now set in stone in an album format.

JID raps forwardly about his experience in the music industry and his success as a hip/hop artist, but dives deeper and questions what this really means for his future, a grand amount of introspection lying in this topic and others like the threats he has faced ... read more
