I already wrote a long and detailed review and now i have to do that again because i have a somewhat unpopular opinion? UGH

Review:
The instrumentation on this thing is great. The sounds used are very fitting and also differing at the same time. It's the one sole thing that makes this a good album. The rest of this is just kinda boring. I don't think this deserves this high of a score. It's really not that impressive. The narration singing is kinda meh. I lost track of what song i was on multiple times while listening to this. I'd assume i forgot to review something when i haven't. Which is annoying because lots of these songs should be over within 4 minutes. I can basically tell what the whole song will sound like a minute into it. There's no surprises. It's mostly tracks that are too long. I swear i'd have at least 3 playlist songs if they were shorter. Ok. Now disc 2. NOT GOOD! It's 2 12+ minute songs of some dumber sounding narration, less charming sounds, and overall just a mess. Really ruins the entire album if you ask me. The last track is about how someone's close to malibu or something idk.

Spinning Song: 73/100 (Good)

Bright Horses: 74/100 (Good)

Fireflies: 60/100 (Im so done with this)
Hollywood: 30/100 (nah)
