mgk - Tickets To My Downfall
65
This is very generic pop punk, and formulaic at times. But it's not necessarily bad as long as you like that genre. It feels like MGK took a lot of the tropes of the genre and shoved them into this album, sometimes adding his own flavor. There are times where it lands, and times where it doesn't. But in the end it's just some guy making a pop punk album because he wants to, and it's fun. It's not meant to be looked at critically. The lyrics also aren't that good. They try to be relatable but I ... read more
Electric Callboy - MMXX
80
This is truly a journey. Eskimo Callboy took all of the stereotypes of the -core genres and amplified them to 100% in a parodic fashion. If you're paying attention to the lyrics (or watching the music videos), you're probably going to laugh as long as you're not taking it too seriously (because the band sure as hell isn't). On top of that, it's actually good music. The vocalist balances the clean and unclean sections very well and the breakdowns are some of my favorites. It's also spiced up ... read more
Marianas Trench - Phantoms
85
It's late and I'm tired so my thoughts aren't gonna be super complex. This is my second favorite so far. It's the most poppy sound (I wouldn't call it rock at all really). They absolutely nail the climax of the album like they always do, going full circle with references to previous songs on the album (as well as using the epic riff from Astoria and End of An Era). I mentioned before that I think even though the lyrics written by this band seem basic at times, it's the vocal delivery that truly ... read more
Marianas Trench - Ever After
78
Okay let's get into this one. First things first, I don't think it's as good as Astoria. While just as emotionally heavy, it doesn't always deliver as such. The singer's voice also sounds much less refined. Something it does better though is cohesiveness. The tracks flow together perfectly, sounding like one big song instead of 12 different ones. And while that doesn't always work for albums, I think it definitely does for this one. These songs are meant to be listened in order with each other, ... read more
Harry Styles - Fine Line
68
This one kind of had me all over the place. There were time when I was kind of just listening to it, and other times when I was bopping my ahead along to a super catchy chorus or crying because of some lyrics that hit just a little too hard. I think there are times when this album suffers from being a bit too formulaic (similar to Astoria, but Astoria made it work because of the placement of those "stereotypical" pop songs). It also seemed to be just a bit more experimental than most ... read more
