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

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

Once again, the fatal flaw of Joji's album is his consistency. Whether he's indulging in post-adolescent melancholia or romantic afterthoughts, Joji just can't quite seem to pinpoint how to convey his ideas and emotions in a thoroughly cohesive and palatable manner.

While the singles (Run, Gimme Love, Sanctuary, Daylight) range from unequivocally great to pretty decent, a pretty decent chunk of the rest of the 18 track album is rather dull. This isn't to say that there aren't great songs on ... read more

Incredibly generic and boring. With a few exceptions, everything sounds the same, and Rivers Cuomo's voice is still less pleasant than that of a depressed adolescent singing Creep.

Despite my dislike of the Blue Album, I still appreciated the ideas that Weezer brought to the table. However, by the Green Album, those same boring romantic ideas have since become massively overblown and trite. The songwriting isn't revolting, but it's still patently stale. It's not quite a non-album, but it's ... read more

FKA Twigs' second full length album, MAGDALENE, is a harrowing and gripping collage of lovelorn pain. Through her paradoxically sparse musical landscape and marvelous deconstruction of pop/rnb sounds and ideas, Twigs is able to explore themes of isolation, anguish, and desire in a uniquely beautiful way.

Sonically, MAGDALENE is a treat to the ears. The production is exceptionally distinct, offering some of the most interesting musical choices I've heard in a while. It also works amazingly ... read more

Yes, I'm a big fan of both Evangelion and Sangatsu no Lion, and it's cool to see a fellow fan too :)

Hey there, thanks for the kind words! I just read your review of MAGDALENE and found it was really well written and brought in some great insight. I read your recent Tame Impala review as well and also found it was strong. It’s awesome that you’re working on improving and it definitely seems to me that you’re putting in some serious work.

I like da muzak.

70 - 100 : Pretty Groovy

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. Forgive me if they're bad or overly pretentious.

My scores are and will probably tend to be positive, as I'm not going to force myself to listen to music I don't enjoy.
