In my opinion, Taylor Swift never makes terrible albums, but nor does she make very good ones. This does nothing to change my opinion. It is nice. Just nice. She's still impossibly caught up with her myriad of romantic histories and sub-plots, and it's still entirely boring to me. But I like the sound she's going for on this record more than her last, and there are a couple tracks I genuinely enjoyed. It will surely please her die-hard fans to no end, and I'm happy for them. Seeing my friend's ... read more

I'll give this a longer review sometime when my life is less shit. For now, I'll say that this album is incredibly frustrating in its sequencing, which is a biggie for me.

Based on this, I'm eagerly awaiting a second LP from Parcels.
(Also can I just say, this has one of the best album covers I've seen in ages!)

"This knockabout wOOooOOOOoooOOOoooOOOOOOooooOOOOOOooooOOOOOrrrRRRRrrrld"

I listened to this because The Smiths were one of those bands that really informed my musical tastes today. So there's a sense of duty here. But this was pretty lame. The lyrics are uninspired at best, stupid at worst ("I don't read newspapers, they're troublemakers"); the instrumentation is over-produced and bland; the compositions themselves are nearly all of them BORING AS HELL, products of pure ... read more

Beautiful little EP. The track "Parties" may be one of the loveliest things Wiesenfeld has created.

Hi there! I accidentally deleted my Fetch the Bolt Cutters review (instead of 'editing' it) and I'm quite pleased with it, would you mind giving it another look? I don't expect a like, just a read my friend!
