iamamiwhoami - BLUE

Interesting mix of trance and synth pop that never really hooked me. There are some great ethereal touches, and some highlights like chasingkites and shadowshow that reach the next level. Most of it sort of blends in a way that might be nice at a dj set, but feels less inspiring to me in general.
Nobigdyl. - SOLAR
71
nobigdyl's flow cadence could use a bit more variety, but otherwise, there are some good beats, good track concepts, good metaphors and punchlines, and it's refreshing to hear a rapper's faith being only the foundation rather than overarching theme. It never feels corny or goofy. Well done.
Gold Necklace - Gold Necklace
75
At first this album had many bits that sounded annoying, but it really comes together with an inexplicable charm. It's like a blend of Jonas Bros, math rock, and 2000s hip hop lyrics, which seems very confusing. But giving it time, it's groovy and surprisingly listenable.
KAYTRANADA - Bubba

Supremely enjoyable record. Basically like experiencing an extraordinarily polished and smooth 1 hour DJ set. Despite being exceptionally groovy, it's also fairly lowkey, so few particular moments really jump out. But that doesn't take much away from how good it feels.
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
56
Aqualung was my surprise masterpiece of 1971. Thick of a Brick, meanwhile, is made from what seems like spite, or a joke. Ian makes a parody of prog rock with an uninspired and directionless compilation of mediocre verses with senseless lyrics. I suppose there is a meta nature to it, but prog rock and concept albums had more landmarks to come, so this one simply thinks it's more coy than it is. At least there is a good amount of great flute playing and jamming.
