Linkin Park The Hunting Party
Arguably Linkin Park hasn't put out an album worth much notice in over 10 years. I didnt actually dislike MtM but a lot of that was my teenage self projecting a desire to really enjoy it. ATS was overall really really poor save for maybe 2 songs. I think I was one of the few who did enjoy Living Things however and it was a step in the direction the general populace wanted to see LP take. rIs The Hunting Party worth your time though? It still heavily depends on how much patience you've given LP in the past. If you've been waiting patiently the last 10 some odd years waiting for another Meteora like experience you'll be half pleased and h
CHVRCHES The Bones of What You Believe
There's something very lovely and endearing about the simplicity and fun this album brings. Lauren Mayberry has a very cute voice and I still have yet to find someone who hasn't really loved this album. rThis resurgence of synth pop music in the past few years has brought us a lot of really cool albums and artists and the like so it's really cool to see what different artists are doing with it. The melody and music behind The Bones of What You Believe is so simple but works so well with Mayberry's voice it really is hard to find anything wrong with this album (there isn't). r
Linkin Park Living Things
A step in a better direction considering where ATS left us (it wasn't very good, it's best songs were just kinda good). It still sounds nothing like their old style but to grow is to change. Is the change they make with Living Things good? It does some things pretty well, Lost In Echo is definitely a very solid opener to the album. Throughout there are still some decent songs to follow, Burn it Down, Castle of Glass, Skin To Bone are probably the decent tracks of the album. It honestly feels like a bit of a mixture of Minutes to Midnight and subtle influences off of their early works with only the slightest hints of ATS (its pretty clear
Nujabes Modal Soul
Nujabes Metaphorical Music
I'll admit, I dont understand to much about Hip-Hop, and I probably understand just as little about jazz. But knowing what I like and what sounds good in each respective genre is another thing entirely. And when I heard production and quality like this against so much of the trite stuff that's produced today, it makes me wonder how rare true genius really is. rIll note the highlights but the whole album is somehow a perfect example of explosive creativity and utter finesse and focus.r-Blessing Itr-Beat Laments the Worldr-A Day by Atmosphere Supremer-Latituder
Tycho Dive
This is an easy album to get lost in, and not many albums have the full on effect where you get lost in its ambiance and come back after its hour or so runtime wondering where your afternoon went. The last time Ive really had that happen so naturally with an album was Takk by Sigur Ros and much like Takk, Dive is a truly "cold" album. It's some interesting mix between the feeling of sinking into water and doing absolutely nothing at all on a rainy summer day. rTo pick a favorite track would feel like I would be doing the album some disservice because the whole album is part of the experience. My best advice is, pick your favorite listening
The Neighbourhood I Love You
Cant say I agree with sarcasgnostic. They have some pretty good tunes in here. Its an odd blend of the melancholy tone of shoegaze with a bit more surf pop tossed in. Its pretty mellow. Great summer album.
