98/100: still love it to bits but Jesus just cut 2 minutes off of Tender. TWO MINUTES. And this would be a well deserved 10/10. Gosh darn it Blur, you've done it again!
Also, you know, I'm not in my Blur phase anymore and I don't have that strong a connection with it, certainly not the one I had just last year. Still, without a doubt a masterpiece and Damon Albarn's highest point out of all his projects.

Japanese Kraftwerk?
The first few tracks are great but in the second half, it gets a lot less fun or remarkable.

Tbh I just feel like listening to actual Kraftwerk now.

Music: is a beautiful and complex art form that allows humans to express their deepest and purest emotions while touching listeners and bringing people closer.

Also music:"Her boob gets so floppy
She uses it as a fan to wave away his sickening B.O.​
Now rubbing it off with a brick"

In a seriousness though, I don't think it's possible to comprehend the sick amount of joy this album brought me. I know it's probably not the "correct" way to enjoy it, but eh. It was so much ... read more

I thought analyzing this thing and really seeing what it's about would make me appreciate it more but instead it just made me notice more and more flaws in terms of lyrics. Contrary to every other EE album, it doesn't paint these big pictures of the present world or have a larger concept. Instead it only sketches a small image of 2016,that image really just being about Brexit and Trump. The production and instrumentation is still a huge strong point as it is with all of their albums, but the ... read more

Aaah this brings me back... For some reason I downloaded this from my parents' library years ago, but I'm glad I did.

96/100: FINALLY I've wanted nothing more than to really clicked with this album, to feel what everyone feels when they listen to this, and I think I finally do. I don't really know what's changed, whether it's me or just the way I listened to it, but it feels like I'm hearing it for the first time all over again and I feel finally how intense and raw this thing really is. It's just so brilliantly put together and so passionately played. I know 85 is still a fantastic score, but honestly, what ... read more

Can we start giving Arc the appreciation it deserves? K thankssss

In my opinion, this album's biggest flaw is some serious pacing a song placement issues.
So I made my own tracklist!

Side A:
1- Fill In The Blank
2- Destroyed by Hippie Powers
3- 1937 State Park
4- (Joe Gets Kicked out of School for Using) Drugs with Friends [But Says This Isn't a Problem]
5- Unforgiving Girl (She's Not An)

Side B:
6- Vincent
7- Not What I Needed
8- Joe Goes To School
(Although honestly I could do without that song all together)
9- Cosmic Hero

Side C:
10- Connect the ... read more

I knew this was going to have mad indie-mac-demarco-rex-orange-county-soft-boi-itis and uh
That's it.
There isn't even a hint of originality or innovation on this thing, and I know an album doesn't need to be innovative to be good, but this just takes all the most common and worst tropes of the scene and mashes them together to create something so lifeless, uninspired, and generic that it becomes annoying after the first 3 songs. It only exists to serve a certain, fairly large niche that ... read more

89/100: Honestly, I'm addicted to this thing.I don't know what it is about it, but in the past month or so I've had this thing on constantly. It's just so fantastic but I seriously can't put my finger on why.

85/100: Kind of expected this to have very severe indie-mac-demarco-rex-orange-county-soft-boi-itis but it is actually great. I'm impressed.

ouch this kinda hurted.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I live for Paramore, I am indeed their little bitch
But AWKIF is uh haha oh noooooo
I mean, they were like 16/17 so it's forgivable but still it's got some wince-worthy moments especially that screaming/growling whatever the hell that was in My Heart oh boy. And the fact that I know it's their now main guitarist before puberty who, you know, wrote all the instrumentals on self-titled and After Laughter. ANYWAYS bye

I haven't heard this thing in a while but I was really in the mood for it tonight and GODDAMN

lyrics: on point.
instrumentation: on point.
performances: on goddamn point.
production: ON POINT
pacing: O N P O I N T

As someone with a strange love for Scottish accents (blame Trainspotting) and indie rock, this was very enjoyable.

Don't care if my amount of 9s is going up now, this thing deserve it. It's a masterpiece. Seriously, it's just so well produced and so interesting. It never gets boring or overwhelming. It has the perfect ballance between being loud and glitchy and being light and soft. I could listen to it all day, there's always something new to find in it. Just really incredible.

My mom was telling me yesterday about how on CBC radio they played some singles from this album as part of their "taste tester" segment and people really didn't like it because it was so sad... Yet here I am, having so much fun! Sure, the lyrics are sad, this IS Bradford Cox we're talking about, but it has such a fresh and fun sound. This is possibly Deerhunter'smost upbeat album (from the ones I've heard) and I am all here for it! Finally, 2019 has begun!
Jan 16, 2019
This album put me in a really terrible mood and made me have mini mental breakdown about my carpet.. so uh...
I mean, I think it's good music, but just for that, nuh-uh stay the fricc away from me thank you.
