HMLTD - The Worm
77
The Worm is definitely a concept album alright. Played out like an musical drama.

What is this? What is the worm? Is it a metaphorical thing? Had the worm really consumed England? Is the worm within us all?

HMLTD’s The Worm is a mess. It’s a structural dumpster fire, with one of the worst first three track runs this year has to offer. Unbelievably corny, out-of-nowhere theatric, a little lost in meaning.. tonally confusing. Only to take a massive 180 after the fourth track- and ... read more

Hello there Nick!!!
Me and my brother recently released an album - in my review I explained the cool story behind how it was made and how it went semi-viral.
It would mean a lot if you could take a look, I promise it's pretty interesting :D
