Dammit, Thanos out here using the reality stone again.

Hot fucking trash.

A more introspective view of Kacey's creativity. Really happy with the simplicity that she goes for and rocks on this record. Expecting this to grow on me even more with future listens.

If someone told me Macklemore wanted to make a record with cultural significance akin to TPBF, this is what I'd expect.

Came not expecting anything and was pleasantly surprised by how nice this was sonically. Little content vocally, which is why I don't think this will amount to much more than a B-grade pop record.

Lucy's voice sounds like how an ice cold glass of milk in the summer tastes. Really works well with the vulnerability of the album.

Hotter singles. Incredible musical cohesion between each track. My AOTY.

I personally didn't find this as conceptually cohesive as Saturation, but found it to be much more robust content wise.

Each voice tells a story, getting heavier and heavier emotionally as the album progresses. Production is top notch.

Great production and actually not the worst writing. Need to come back to this...

edit: OKAY. That's why - I was only half way through. Great production = Same thing all the way through. Same style, yeah, which is fine, but becomes monotone because things don't evolve enough. Not the worst writing = basically the same thing; same themes but with different words/metaphors. Eventually get's old on a 1hr long LP. Pull this back down to a 30-40 min set and consolidate some of the ideas and it's ... read more

One of the better singer songwriter albums of 2016. Honest, sad, diverse.

Surprised how much this flew under the radar. Really tight and coherent sound throughout.

Mr. Man is SUCH a banger; Crossfire was a great commentary on shit going on the past few years.

Ed, still, is best at writing sad shit.

Like, I want an album of sad shit. No more cookie cutter, angsty white guy relationship revenge songs, please.

Thinking Out Loud is legit though. "I'm gonna be in every wedding from now til forever. Fuck all of you." Well played.

Always a go to with the wife.

Easy, light; Ed is a great musician. Strives in writing sad shit.

His rendition of Parting Glass is cancer.

Felt that the singles released were weak, but they were, unfortunately, of the same quality as the rest of the album. Just formulated pop that makes you think Ed is running out of ideas.

Super Market Flowers is good shit, though.

I enjoyed the two singles that she put out.

That is the only part of this record that I enjoyed. The whole thing is devoid of lyrical or musical bright spots
or creativity. Hoping that her next project can find some sort of happy medium between her classic anthems and whatever this was trying to be.

Great voice, but certainly not the deepest album.. which can be a breath of fresh air.

One of those records that needs to be listened to front to back; elite coherence and great, seldom written about subject matter. Beautiful vocal performance and great musical accompaniment. One of a kind piece of work.

Sampha's voice is gorgeous. No One Knows Me will sit as one of the most beautiful show stopping tracks on any record for me, set up beautifully by Kora Sings (not the album's strongest track by any means) just before.

Glorious and fresh instrumentation. Every track hits its own unique sound and features some really great writing.
