An early contender for what will be one of the stronger albums of the year, this is a smart work in which no amount of sound space is wasteful or out of place. The production across this record is the true highlight, with the vibrant tones and instrumentation complimenting Van Etten's voice well. I haven't delved into the artists work much up to this point, but this record is an encouraging reason to do so.

Any new work by Aesop Rock is welcome, and that is no different here. The addition of Tobacco makes this a unique project that sounds seperate from a Aesop proper album with the electro-fusion style beats and production. Although this is far from the dark and moody production one would usually catch on an Aesop record, this isn't his usual work, so that should be expected and not rejected so quickly. I could see this production really growing on the listener after time, but as usual the lyrical ... read more

It may seem criminal to rate a Nirvana record so low, but really I don't view this as their proper debut for a lot of reasons. The issue with Bleach is that the group have their usual raw sound all over this record, but the music is so poorly produced that that rawness can't come across as clean. Having a garage-rock style is by no means something I can't get behind, but the production on this is absolutely so poor that it's downright inexcusable. There are bright spots on this record, for ... read more

The group completely abandon the small amount of fun that was exhibited on their debut record that had a mix of ska and punk in turn for a more commercial-friendly pop rock sound that has some remnants of that ska-punk sound, but watered down. This is essentially a record that has about two half-way decent tracks (Then The Morning Comes, Can't Get Enough Of You Baby), one highly overplayed but still slightly fun mega-hit (All Star) and the rest is essentially unlistenable. Stick to the tracks - ... read more

This album starts out as harmless ska-punk with little substance but at least decent fun to listen to. By track four, however, the fun has worn off but the record goes on. The final track Why Can't We Be Friends speaks to the entire album well as a closing track; repetitive and you're begging for it to end by the half-point. There are some at least listenable tracks on this record, but overall this is massively easy to skip on.
