This is a really... difficult album to listen to. Essentially turning away from their fiery yet cerebral brand of shoegaze on their previous albums in favour of a more psychedelic sound, this album is a lot more tuneful and melodic than their previous work, but suffers immensely from sounding too bloated and overproduced.

The first song on the album is a rough start straight out of the bat. This song clocks in at almost 7 minutes in length, and with a title like "Moonlight ... read more

Started listening to Hot Chip a year or so ago after hearing "Look at where we are" in a TV show somewhere and really liking it, and I really enjoyed a lot of their music. So when I found out they were working on a new album this year, I was super excited. And I wasn't at all disappointed! This is a pretty fun blend of indie synth-pop and cute balladry.

Kicking off with strong with the title track and "Melody of Love", there's a lot of personality and interesting ... read more

If you'd have told me when "Exits" dropped that part 1 would become my favourite Foals album to date, I would have laughed you out of the room. But man this album was a real pleasant surprise.

Opening track "Moonlight" is pretty laid back, yet there's an underlying ... read more

This album took a while to grow on me, but when I say it grew on me, that's an understatement. This album is so jarring when compared to their previous albums, the incorporation of jazz and electronics and using a much more toned down approach when it comes to the rock side of the instrumentation was the start of Radiohead's foray into much more experimental sides to their brand of alt-rock.

Kicking off with "Everything in its right place", you know that this is something incredibly ... read more

It's honestly not as bad as the band makes it out to be, it's just not very original or inspired and you can tell that this was an album that they forced themselves to finish and had no real love for. When you hear the passion behind their other records, you can tell that this is an album that they wish never happened.

The main issue with this record lies with the production. It literally sounds like it was recorded out of a tin can for pretty much the entire record. If it wasn't for this, it ... read more
