it started graciously with the most emotive sentiments gathered altogether to come up with tracks 1-4, right until the rest came along and went to a change of ways from orchestral music to trip-hop and experimental ones. i personally loved the first half of the album and how it’s breathtaking, including because there’s “Jóga” in it, but i’m not yet accustomed to Björk’s deafening facets with beats coming after beats that make it hard to enjoy the ... read more

let’s just say that the way he feels is valid, but it’s very colorless, blandly romantic and quite cliché. his bedroom type of music isn’t as attractive as it could be, but it’s enjoyable. it reminds me of “Cheap Queen“, although the differences between one another are extremely notorious. nevertheless, i already had in mind that this project would maintain its pace towards mediocrity. it does sound that i’m throwing sticks and stones to it, but ... read more
