|Biggest Disappointment of 2016|
Who shit the bed in no specific order
|1||The Fall of Troy|
Great riffs and songs completely handcuffed by awful, brutal production. The bottom end is almost completely absent from this thing, leaving it sounding thin and empty. The attempts to "remaster" it were also equally bad.
These guys are hitting a rut, this was really uninspired and very disappointing after offering some new ideas on III.
Really bland. I think they're relying too much on their deep, hypnotic sound too much to create interest and not doing enough to put forth any interesting ideas.
The Life of Pablo
I think I just have to come to terms with the fact that there will never be another Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Some good songs, but it's pretty obvious she's going through an identity crisis.
Mono No Aware
Songs that go nowhere. A really frustrating listen.
Along the Shadow
It comes across as very unenthusiastic. Anthony is a great singer, but the production makes this whole thing sound very bland.
|8||Macklemore and Ryan Lewis|
This Unruly Mess I've Made
Production and beats were very safe, and I guess Macklemore just forgot to rap about anything interesting.
|9||Hail the Sun|
Lost their aggressive edge, which was really the only thing keeping them from sounding completely generic.
|10||Dance Gavin Dance|
Someone needs to sit me down and explain to me why this is anything better than the million other bands doing the same over-produced, uninteresting stuff.
