Bruh how the fuck are there already so many good releases like I can’t with this shit (the thing though is that I can)

The streak of good 2024 albums continues with another artist that I have never heard of before in my life. Bill Ryder Jones brings some absolutely stunning balladry here. The instrumentation here is truly breathtaking, so much life in the production and the vocals are so passionate. The strings are lovely, and really pack a punch. Especially with This Can’t Go On, one my favorites out of the bunch here. My number one has to be Thankfully for Anthony though. My god that track is so impactful and beautiful. The ending is just euphoria. I also love the way the kids choir comes in at the end of Its Today Again. All around stunning work here. Might have to check out more from this artist.
