I thought the album cover looked kinda neat so I decided to check this album out and damn this is rough. It's a typical indie synth-pop album but with no character, no risk-taking, nothing daring, exciting, challenging or even fun. It's a fucking slog the whole way through. God bless everyone who listens to this thing cover to cover, I barely got through it.

What a better way to start the year than with another sad indie folk album from Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty Label?

'Tomb' is highly reminiscent of Stevens' haunting 2015 masterpiece 'Carrie and Lowell' with a similar subtle yet beautiful production quality. I do feel however, that the production may be a tad too subtle on this album. Where on 'Carrie and Lowell' we were swept away in nostalgic ambience every time Stevens took his fingers off the guitar, here we are only graced with the ... read more

I bought this album on CD from a thrift store in my town for 50 cents. I wasn't particularly impressed with it at the time and I'm not particularly impressed with it now. However, I've got to admit there are some catchy songs on this album. Tracks like 'Guitar' 'Sheep Go to Heaven' and 'Let Me Go' are undeniably fun songs despite their simplicity and the lack of anything particularly original or substantive in the lyrics.

On the other hand, there are many songs on this album that make ... read more

Jesus, what an unrelenting beast of an album. This is one of my favorite albums to listen to while I go on my early morning runs and while I certainly don't recommend starting your day with frantic experimental hip hop, I've gotta admit it really gets my blood pumping.

It's easy to call a Death Grips record frantic or disturbing or dark but what I admire most about this album is it manages to string those ideas together into a (relatively) standard pop structure. The songs sound like ordinary ... read more

You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become a villain. Here's Paul McCartney with another agonizingly cliched track. God help us all. The bridge of this song is the only part I can endure without vomiting.

Lanky nerd from New Jersey who likes music and plastering his opinion all over the internet.

My negative reviews are either music I used to like but now hate or music I thought I was going to like but didn't. I will not go out of my way to listen to stuff I don't expect to like. I'm fairly open minded but I only have roughly 39,420,000 minutes to live and I'm not going to waste 27 of those listening to Tekashi 69's mixtape just to prove how open minded I am. Sorry if that's pretentious lol.
