Amazing

The pop formula has been widely exploited in today's music scene as one of the most common musical tropes to grace the medium. It feels as if every time I turn on the radio, which is quite rare, I hear the same tracks over and over. While this definitely has something to do with the closed minds of the 'radio announcer people / disc jockeys', I think that pop as a genre is musically under-saturated.

And here waltzes in Ms. SAWAYAMA, and yes, I'm referring to both the artist and this record. Blending elements of nu metal, electropop, romantic classical, and glitch house, this record encapsulates some of the most interesting and fulfilling genre-bending techniques I've ever heard, all under the guise of a genetically-engineered behemoth of a record. This will be hard to top in the future, but if she does, it will be even more of an instant classic than this one.

Color: Black
FAV TRACKS: all of them!
