musical taste

favorite bands
Lady Gaga Artpop
Artpop as a whole is probably better than Born This Way but it still stands that Gaga's most consistent works were The Fame and The Fame Monster, holding the most overall quality and not solely relying on it's singles to carry it. rI legitimately enjoy GUY and Applause quite a bit. I'd say they're probably better than all the singles off of Born This Way entirely, which is a shame because they had less than half the buzz any of those songs did. rIll be interested to see what she does next, for the time being it seems like Lady Gaga chose to fullfill the role of the light burning twice as bright burning half as long. Except in her case she
CHVRCHES Every Open Eye
When this album dropped and I finally got to listen to it, I was so pleased with how Chvrches managed to make an album as good and fun as their first one. Whereas The Bones of What you Believe hit some very very high points and had a couple lower aspects to it, Every Open Eye manages to be entirely consistent throughout. It's clearly apparent how aware Chvrches are about what makes their music fun and listenable. Without trying much of anything new they stick with what made their first album great and just did it again.
Metric Pagans In Vegas
Metric has really lost their touch. Which is such a shame since Fantasies was a truly fantastic album start to finish. And honestly up until Synthetica all their albums we're pretty great overall, they all had that weird metric charm which is some combination of odd rhythms and tunes, strange lyrics but overall very catchy songs. But then Synthetica happened and either we just got tired of Emily Haines' odd style or they just forgot to make their songs catchy along with the strange. Yet Haines seems to caught up in herself to be aware that the band just doesn't make good music anymore. I mean The Shade was a half passable first single,
Kanye West The College Dropout
Kanye West Late Registration
Kanye West 808s and Heartbreak
I find 808s is a pretty under rated album in Kanye's discography, people kind of forget it exists which is strange because I find it a lot more consistent in quality than Graduation. But I can't earnestly think of a single song on the album that I dislike. Kanye has usually only used autotune in the past in songs as a simple aesthetic addition. But it is used as a tool here to construct the whole feel of the album. 808's represents loss of love and well, Heartbreak. The cold and distant sound of the autotune helps to drive that feeling home perfectly. The cold robotic vocals express the idea that love is gone and it leaves an empty void
X Ambassadors VHS
In the realm of ultra generic alt. rock "Renegades" is actually a pretty solid song. Catchy, uplifting, good beat. And Jungle is actually a very cool track. But the rest of the album is some of the most piss poor alternative you'll listen to this year. It's a shame because their EP wasn't entirely terrible in and of itself.
