Patience testing, unfortunately. There are some great tunes on this thing for sure, but I have a hard time digesting sections on this project where it just sort of sounds like Julian and friends self indulgently jerking themselves off over undercooked noisy soundscapes. Not bad, but Virtue is leagues better in my ears.
Actual smelly ass. The worst Strokes song It’s an abomination and assault on the senses and has more in common with a shitty 12 year old YouTuber’s song mashup of a Strokes song and Regina Spectre whale calls than an actual bonafide official Strokes track. Why create this? I don’t know. I want to fire this track into the sun.
