HOT TAKE ALERT: THIS ALBUM IS BORING AS SIN.

EDIT: I have a confession. This is my first rodeo with James Blake, and while I will say that this album is has a lot good with it, there isn't anything here that convinces me to go back and sift through his back discography. There is some really nice and pretty production and musical moments, and James Blake defiantly can sing. there is some pretty unforgettable moments sprinkled throughout. And it's not like this album is god-awful. It is far ... read more

Damn. Sounding like Daft Punk producing for Clipping, it's an album that's fun, full of quirky, alternative, fun and interesting production backing smart, well written, interesting and imaginative flows by Aesop Rock. It sounds like a fun house full of wacked out, experimental and strange soundscapes full of demented themes and messages. And that's just the by-the-number description. One of the early experimental hip-hop gems of 2019 that you wont want to miss out on.

This is an album that screams 69 to me. This isn't that bad of a record, technically speaking. It's fun, it's got a punk energy to it, and it's well performed instrumentally wise. And while it's not even close to funny, this is probably the band i'd expect to make a song like "Enjoy" or "Orgofart". It's probably my lest favorite of their records, but it's not the abomination that some people were bulding it up to be. At best, it's an exciting and fucking relentless pop ... read more

It's pretty good. Much more space tinged and atmospheric then the Car Seat Headrest releases I've heard before. The low-fi aesthetic of this album really helps create a distant and futuristic mood that pulls influences from Bowie while still having the uniquely hipster-esq sound of Car Seat Headrest to create something truly interesting. It's a well written, if not slightly nihalist, record that is really worth your time, and proves you don't need amazing production to create something truly ... read more

I thought this was pretty fun. Filled with catchy, exciting and pretty well written and well produced pop punk bangers, with a surf rock attitude and a teenage sense of delusion. It's fun, it's interesting, and it has some extremely fun and exciting musical moments. It's pretty fun, and honestly, that's all you can say. It's fun, fun, fun.

CONCERT REVIEW - IDLES
Date: 21st January 2019

That was the best show I've been to. I'm not even joking. Idles are legitimately the greatest live band playing right now, from the audience participation to the level of musicianship to the high, addictive energy that was lightning in a bottle magic. Never had a band truely gotten to what a true blue live act should be like, but this succeeded in every level.
10/10

FYI: If you see a single being reviewed, then it's most likely my first reaction. Opinions of singles tend to change when the album comes out, as the album can change the context of the song.
