The Weeknd - Dawn FM
75
If evermore was a sister album to folklore then, Dawn FM was more like a brother album to After Hours. Same vibes with same concept. The only difference is Dawn FM emphasizes more on musical arrangement and production meanwhile After Hours focus more on lyrical content which makes the album more personal and meaningful to me.

Prioritise Pleasure shares almost similar subject/concept with Little Simz "SIMBA" such such as self and women-empowerment but the latter started with stronger ... read more
The War on Drugs - I Don't Live Here Anymore
96
Their best record to date surpassing Lost in the Dream, surely a major step up from A Deeper Understanding at least in my honest opinion. Harmonia's Dream and Occasional Rain are career highlights, definitely in Top 5 of their best songs. The album serves punch after punch, overwhelming pleasant and very captivating as whole. It perfectly concludes the subject of life, somehow it resembles my vulnerability. I can see it becomes a new entry in my classic book, gives it times the album is such a ... read more
