I would not call it a good sign when the first instrumental on the album is so poorly mixed that you must skip it to prevent your ears from hurting. Things hardly pick up from there, and what we are left with is a below par hip-hop record from a once very promising young rapper.

When an artist goes for something fairly basic and then they hit it top bins like AJ Tracey does with "Flu Game" it almost feels like being schooled in their respective lane. Almost every feature hits home and the production is wonderfully fat. The definition of solid.

There has been a trend going around with people rating these post-punk and post-rock records very highly, and I will not deny these bands their quality. Their basic sound is usually decent, but average rock and punk instrumentals with some pretentious vocals over them do not have a tendency to wow me to any degree.

Laura Marling's vocals range from mildly annoying to very beautiful all on one album when it comes to "Animal". Simply put, this is a very underwhelming collection of tracks. There is not much special to be found on here, and none of it is worth revisiting.

The final four tracks weigh it down a little bit, but everything before that would have seen this be a perfect album. Some of the sounds present are simply otherworldly. Not to mention the fact that 50% of the electronic and UK music I enjoy would not have existed if it was not for Primal Scream's ever-brilliant "Screamadelica".

This is essentially my to-listen list. I used to have a couple lists like that, with differences in the category of music, but I have wheeled it back to a single list of music I am really curious ...
