I mean sure. It’s better than your town’s summer festival cover band. The songwriting on some of these tracks are great enough to carry this project to tolerability. I’d go as far to say that this album is enjoyable. And yet, it’s innumerably disappointing.

The Teal Album is the latest of Weezer’s attempts to milk the success of “Africa” and garner buzz for the upcoming Black album (in which Rivers proudly posted on Facebook that he “uses the ... read more

I love Toro y Moi’s general aesthetic and I wanted to love this album as much I as love the idea of loving it. Unfortunately I have to admit it kinda sucks.

Outer Peace’s singles hinted at an album chock full of funky grooves, and the opening tracks “Fading,” “Ordinary Pleasure,” and “Laws of the Universe” definitely deliver. Yet, something about the tunes kinda feels like drinking from a spoiled milk carton. A little sour and a little ... read more

James Blake has found love, and his latest, Assume Form, lets us know.

Seemingly Blake's most blissful project to date, Assume Form is filled with odes to his girlfriend Jameela Jamil. While they produce some of the strongest tracks here– Can't Believe The Way We Flow is a gorgeous Oneohtrix Point Never-featuring track with hazy and soothing vocals that radiate cuddliness– Blake's inspiration results in a couple duds too. Barefoot in the Park is an unapologetic PDA that features ... read more
