Accusations of being an industry plant aside, this is a fairly blissful PC Music-esque romp through Clairo’s head, which admittedly most people listen to for the persona anyways. It’s perfectly harmless indie pop, and quite sugary to boot.

FAVE TRACKS: FLAMING HOT CHEETOS, B.O.M.D., 4EVER

A surprisingly deft and quirky return to form from Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye himself, though the second half lags largely in comparison the tight first half of the track listing.

FAVE TRACKS: DISTORTED RECORDS, A$AP FOREVER, FUKK SLEEP, PRAISE THE LORD (DA SHINE), BLACK TUX, WHITE COLLAR, PURITY
LEAST FAVOURITE TRACK: DROP$

Although a little one-dimensional in nature, Goodbye & Good Riddance showcases the potential of a talent that is sure to become a household name should Juice Wrld continue to diversify his sonic palette in the future.

FAVE TRACKS: ALL GIRLS ARE THE SAME, LUCID DREAMS, END OF THE ROAD, I’LL BE FINE
LEAST FAVOURITE TRACK: LEAN WIT ME

I was very perplexed by this release at first, liking only Comme Des Garcons and little else. I wrote it off as a B-sides collection with little artistic value, but on revisiting this album post-Blonde, the music reveals itself to be even more abstract and at times, even more beautiful than the ground covered on Blonde, offering greater insight into Ocean's creative process and musical philosophy. A sonic journey.
