Black Country, New Road - For the first time
90
"And you cannot fucking touch me . . . I am invincible in these sunglasses"

Through unstable vocals and riotous instrumentation, Black Country, New Road is able to create a fascinating work full of self-reflection and cold rage. The tracks are assembled, often switching tone and swapping production style throughout, in such a way that intimately depicts the jumbled mindscape of our narrator, Isaac Wood. Dripping in irony, sarcasm, and references, the 6 tracks harshly paint the narrow ... read more

Rebecca Black - Friday (Remix)
39
I can't tell if it's a joke or not. Did they actually try to make a remix of the song, or did they jump on musical trends to ironically make a shit song in the spirit of the original "Friday"? Anyways, this sounds like the love child of self-deprecative 100 gecs jokes and 4 pediatric doses of stolen surgical ketamine.
Jeremy Zucker - all the kids are depressed
40
"We're all suicidal kids telling each other suicide isn't the answer" the song.

As a heads up, I'm not trying to gatekeep mental illness or come down on this guy if he's struggled with himself.

Came across this randomly on youtube, and clicked on it because the title of the song is, well, "all the kids are depressed". Sorry, but this just completely rubs me the wrong way. I'm not sure what this dude's purpose was in writing and making such a song, but the end product is ... read more

FKA twigs, Headie One & Fred again... - Don't Judge Me
70
Funnily enough, production wise, the tracks biggest strengths are also kind of its biggest weaknesses. It's airy and light, as one would expect from Twigs, but almost to the point where there's almost no substance at all. Sure it sounds great, but it also definitely feels skeletal at points.

Then there's Headie's verse which leaves more than a little to be desired. In particular, his delivery is muddy and it gets incredibly hard to understand what he's saying. Now this wouldn't be that much ... read more

Kid Cudi - Man On The Moon: The End Of Day
81
I'm pretty sure I first heard Cudi on a ESPN documentary about either the Cuban or Dominican Republican Little League World Series baseball team from 2007ish called (I think) "Boys of Summer". Forgive me for not remembering the exact year or the nationality of the team depicted, but it was from a long ago, and I can't seem to find mention of the documentary anywhere on the net.

Now what I do remember is the story of the team, who, starting early in the year, worked their asses off ... read more

Also, New Abnormal by the strokes. One of the most well-textured albums I've ever heard.

Well, seeing that you loved BCNR's album earlier this year, I'd definitely recommend Squid's Town Centre. It's weaker and smaller in scope compared to BCNR, but still pretty great. I'd also suggest the singles the band's released since if you end up liking the album (Narrator specifically). I'm pretty tired rn so I'm gonna go to sleep, but I could hit you with some more stuff tomorrow if you'd like.

60-69 : Slightly Above Mediocre/Mixed Bag
40-59 : Still Better Than Blue Album
20-39 : Musical Cum Sock
0-19 : Shagging Corey Feldman

I'm generally pretty bad at writing and thought that I'd be able to improve by writing some reviews from time to time. They're mostly bad and pretentious so sorry.

I don't finish what I don't like. Hence the distribution.
