Well, I'm glad there's more great ideas than not in this new album. Poppy develops more of her character in the lyrics and it's really awesome to see how it's more than just robot references, it deals definitely with more than just identity crisis. I guess what's more interesting is that these tracks feel less pale and calculated than her previous album, however sometimes it gets to a point where so much stuff feels disjointed and navegates trough old trends that don't match Poppy's style at ... read more

An ode to ugliness, imperfection, awkwardness and tragedy, Joy as an Act of Resistance represents everything great and exciting about rising band IDLES as their share their point of view with disgrace, catharsis and lots of fury.

The writing is really good, tons better ... read more

The album is filled with moments of pain ... read more

It's not even the spanish lyrics or the flamenco base which the whole project unfolds... it's the soul that feels so clear and solid within every single track, it's the story that Rosalía tell which makes this so alluring and one of the most interesting projects of the year. I know I've said this about a lot of records of 2018, but I feel like this is such a milestone for the spanish singer, I haven't hear Los Ángeles yet, however I think she's really giving it all in these ... read more
