I was wondering why this contrived consolidation of trendy sounds was getting a disproportionate amount of acclaim given its vapid songwriting. Then I realized it's associated with Black County, New Road, the masters of consolidating contrived and trendy sounds and getting a disproportionate amount of acclaim for it by the music media ecosystem.

Can you really tell me there's one memorable melody or chord progression in this entire record? No. It's average songwriting plastered with gimmicky electronic psuedo-experimentation, which would get zero attention whatsoever if it were released on bandcamp by a rando without music industry connections. I expect interest in this album to plummet in about a month because there is genuinely nothing here worth returning to.

100% Agree, I start to think that people don't really listen the albums that they rate, this is not a masterpiece but a mediocre album.
