Mhhh. I just finished my first session. Kinda disappointed. Like Retrograde much more than anything else. Maybe it will clock over time.

i don't even know how people judge cover art? like it's not even important enough to judge most of the time?

it's just like judging music, as it is also art. for people like me who are into graphic design and the like, yeah it's important. I mean obviously it won't change how I feel about the music, though it is really nice to see an aesthetically pleasing album cover.

the thing with album art to me is it gives you an image to put in your head while you listen. it sets the mood. its always in the back of my mind either consciously or subconsciously and its just part of the whole package. art shouldnt affect the music but on some small level it can very slightly add or detract to the experience for me. because its all art in the end.

Lots of artist name-dropping, genre-flaunting and condescension instead of actual analysis




sounds like pitchfork in general. Was interesting reading it after this review, the RZA rap seems very polaristic.

James Blake's most positive attribute seems to be his ability to inspire overblown and overly poetic album reviews.
