I'll admit, this album is probably better than I have the capacity to appreciate it. This particular style of indie folk is soooooo overdone that it's hard for me to get past its tropes long enough to see the forest for the trees. But for what it's worth, it's really well crafted, and catchy at that rate. The vocals are really pretty and clean, particularly on the title track. The guitar work on this is also pretty admirable. Great tone, creative yet tasteful effects.

I rate this "I liked ... read more

This album makes me really sad for the plight of the modern single female trying to navigate the dating world. The interludes in particular are pretty depressing. "He was so bad for me, but he was so good at sex", "If you want him to do something for you tomorrow, you better have sex with him tonight", etc. Real miserable stuff. Makes it worse that this is sung chiefly from the perspective of a 30 something. Like damn, it don't get any easier, huh?

I need to stop getting such a hard on when I see the genre tag "gothic metal". I'm not often subjected to an album in that genre that's like HORRIBLE, but this album is definitely the median. Just this kind of samey, 4 to the floor butt rock with black-ish metal vocals. Like watered down. Grey metal vocals. There's some tasty little guitar riffs here and there, but the reverberating snares and particular chord progressions are just so cheesy.

OHHH okay, is this why Oneohtrix sounds like this? I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if this lady's past works were like a big influence on him. But I digress.

This is one of those ambient, sonic pallet sort of electronic albums. If I'm ever into this sort of thing, I'm really in it for the particular quality of the bleeps and bloops. So this was pretty lacking for me.

Love the weird, plucky, reverberated melody on "Tropical Convergence", punctuated by this low ... read more

Hoo boy, this one. Uh.

I feel like post rock can be a tough genre. It's like you have a slider, and one end is "Generation defining masterwork", and the other is "stuffy pretentious dreck". This project isn't like, offensively bad or anything. It's greatest sin is unoriginality. There is not a single thing here I haven't heard before. Kind of comes with the territory of being a internet browsing music dork that's older than 20. But hey, Im usually along for the ride as long ... read more
