Really good! amazing vocals and production, and even the features add something and doesn't feel forced. Can't wait to hear more from her. Also it tooks me along time to notice the cat on the cover. 😂

DGD is one of the most unique band I've ever listened to, their sound can be described as Post-Hardcore but they also blend a lot of other genres and styles (from Math Rock, Funk, Soul to Prog). But the most important thing is: it makes a lot of fun to listen to, and that even without having a standard structure and completely absurd vocal combination, it's just so fucking good!
This is by far my favorite DGD album, the whole thing is just banger after banger non-stop.

I find most experimental/indie stuff to be totally pretentious and boring, but this album is absolutely authentic and amazing! They managed to find the perfect balance between interesting and catchy, with every song sounding distinct and telling its own story and also being completely cohesive.
Favorites: Miniskirt, Warm Like Summer, Letting Go, Taste and Sore Eyes.

Some songs here are really good but I miss the djent riffs which made their first album so enjoyable. Without them they start to sound like a generic indie rock band on this thing.
Favorites: Smartfriend, Alien Shivers and Still.

One of my favorite pop albums. It's so enjoyable and consistent with amazing songwriting and production. It might be way more "radio pop" compared to her debut, but I think it's clearly more memorable and fun to listen to.

Purity Ring are the best thing ever happened to music

I have my own personal taste which means I don't care about what is considered to be "good" by the general opinion or critics. If I like it I'll rate it high no matter who has made it, and vice versa.

And I'm constantly changing my scores lol
