Serotonin II is very beautiful and ethereal, almost feeling lighter than air. Although the songs usually started out a bit slow, they almost always made it to commendable peak. The whispy vocals float over the dreamlike instrumentals really well, but they are so soft that they almost felt like they were extensions of the instrumental rather than lyrics meant to stand on their own, which took away a bit of the emotion for me. Overall I would say I enjoyed it quite a bit and will definitely be ... read more

I still feel like I'm not smart enough to be listening to this album

It’s not that there was anything inherently bad with this new Aminé album, it’s more that there just wasn’t anything exciting about it. Limbo didn’t have the character that his debut had, and the absence of that lighthearted tongue in cheek humor is a big loss for the flow of the album.

The Microphones in 2020 plays almost more like an autobiography than it does an album, especially when consumed in the visual album medium where Phil Elverum displays images that relate to the lyrics. This album feels like a culmination of everything he has done and experienced leading up to this moment in his life.

The minimal instrumental, that ebbs and flows with the dynamic of the lyrics, is both sparse and warm, creating a beautifully present environment. Mainly revolving ... read more

Been listening to this album a lot recently. It's a great companion to the Lord of the Rings, which I'm rereading.

Hi there! Sorry for the spammy/annoying message. I was just wondering if you would like to listen to my album! (I know, everyone asks this... Sorry.)

It's called The Album of Obscure Sorrows by Concrete Castles
Its an instrumental electronic album based on a set of words called "The dictionary of obscure sorrows"

I just want to improve, so please give me a negative or a positive review.
It would mean a lot to me even if you listened to the first track and told me what you think. It's very hard to get people to listen to your music, the market is huge.

Anyways, the album releases June 20th, or tomorrow. Here is the link. Thanks so much! :D
