Bladee - EXETER
98
EXETER is Bladee's underappreciated masterpiece. Even among Bladee fans, EXETER remains sort of a black sheep, and of course his haters are going to have the same opinion on it as they do all of his other music. The exact same reasons I love this are why many people seem to hate it, though. Even though at nine tracks and 18 minutes it may seem small, this marked a tremendous turning point in the style and overall mood of Bladee's music.

Though this album does have some pretty interesting and varied ideas, along with solid singing and songwriting, this album does have a few shortcomings that hold it back from being as impactful as her last. The most notable of which being the mixing. This entire album sounds like to get the final mix they blasted it on a bluetooth speaker in a cathedral and then recorded that on a blue snowball. Sometimes the songs are good enough to get past this, but other times it's just genuinely ... read more

Brendon Urie is on a mission to make every instrument sound as bad as possible. This whole album is oversung and overcompressed to the point it's completely unlistenable. Half of these songs seem like a lawsuit waiting to happen as well considering there's a lot of stuff here that sounds exactly like songs I've heard but can't quite put my finger on. Not to mention the whole album is just generally very derivative, mostly of Queen. Combine that with some of the most baffling songwriting and ... read more

Nothing I love more than a failed cry for attention from unbearable Olivia Rodrigo clone industry plant #24. All these people actually make me appreciate Olivia a bit more because I can see that there was actually something there in the first place. That is as opposed to this mindless drivel which takes the most basic aspects of her songwriting and boils any good away until you just have a loud, obnoxious tik tok bait song that's too stupid for even them, and too vulgar for top 40 radio.

The final song of an album is one of the most important things to it. To make you feel satisfied, an album closer has to look at everything an album has done and say, "Hey, how am I going to make a satisfying ending to this story?" Album closers are incredibly hard to execute and many don't feel how they should. It takes a lot of talent for an artist to wrap up their own piece of work effectively and make a listener feel satisfied.

Which leads me to my question: what is your favorite album closer/finale of all time and why?
