Not John Grant's best but he's still his strange and witty self on here. There's a diverse range of production, some tracks are very cult-like while others use video game sounds to create swirling arcade atmospheres. A few tracks being a little too plain and drawn out is the biggest flaw on Love is Magic.

Liked the opening and closing tracks on here but everything inbetween feels very underwhelming despite some catchy hooks and decent instrumentation. The radio friendly music on here lacks intrigue and doesn't really seem to come from a place of passion. It's all very squeaky clean and bland.

This is nothing new stylistically but the way the smooth western compositions give shine to Colter Wall's broody vocal and sweet picturesque lyricism is something I can always get behind if the quality is there. On Songs of the Plains it certainly is.

Glad to see you gave Amen Dunes - Freedom the score it deserves, good job

Yeah, the 5 pillars thing was a little silly (and I think he was well aware of that fact) but I'm glad you dig the album. It's good fun, especially coming from a guy who took himself very seriously in the past. If you've never listened to his debut you really should, but be warned it is VERY different from this new one... (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8CuwxE94F8 This gives you an idea) By the way, I've had that Voidz on my radar for months now, I need to get to that.

Hahaha, okay - so I take it you aren't a part of the Friendly Jordies YouTube channel then? If not, disregard what I just said.

Your reviews are great, mate! Couldn't agree more with the yawn-fest that is The Carters. Also, I feel like I should mention that I have used your videos in my classes in the past. While they might not be suitable for kids, they love 'em!

I'm definitely no Canadian!!! HAHA I'm just messing with you, Neil Young isn't for everyone... To be honest with you, I've always been a bigger fan of Harvest anyway.

After looking at your twitter I'm beginning to see why you might not like Neil Young LMFAO
