Pixy continues to lean hard and spooky with all the sexy confidence of boyband comebacks. They manage the thruline of spooky aesthetics without falling to the buttrock leanings of dreamcatcher. Incredibly promising.

And I can't wait for the attempts at fuzing something Bollywood adjacent with kpop dies down. It hasn't clicked for anyone the hints at it here do them little justice. The rest of the record fails to find any kind of footing in personality. Overall odd and uneven.

A miraculous 180 after the humbling trainwreck of PTT. Feels like a callback to their ++ era. Bounces with vibrant hooks that lock together as a gorgeous pop effort. Why this wasn't the KR comet over PTT is beyond me.
God I'm so glad their back. I just hope they survive in this direction.

90. Could rise. Unlikely to drop.
Sadly I don't think people are appreciating how deeply weird and bold sticker is. It feels like these boys had to meet their NCT colleagues of Dream with something equally weird and arresting. Sticker as an album is an expansive and horny sort of electro kpop effort that feels more mature than it should for a group of this age. It's a lush and weird buffet of dynamic sounds that feels every bit as considered as their elder Labelmates, EXO and SHINee.

Hello
I'm not a big fan of nitpicky incremental scores. They just confuse ratings.
100: Masterpiece. Personally important or historically so.
90: Minor Masterpiece Mild Nitpicks
80: Potential Classic.
70-60: Good/Great
50-40: Mediocre
30-10: Bad
0: An affront to art and God.
Like many of you I also write music under the guise Mall Ghosts
Kpop is actually good & you shouldn't ignore it. Stan TWICE

Good Album Art Does not reflect the quality of the album as is evidenced by the fact that I included Queen here and they suck shit.

Ranging from cynical and lazy to offensive in all the wrong ways. The garbage piss graphic design hell of uninspired or demented album covers. Not ranked.

Albums with minimal interaction from posters and seemingly minor following all over the place. Stuff that I wish I had found sooner and I hope you enjoy as well. Somewhat ranked idk.
