5.0 classicGay School Shooter Big Bang Theory Character | January 25th 17

An AOTY looked at me.

2.0 poorSowingSeason STAFF | March 25th 17

I feel for this guy, but singing (or in this case, talking) about death does not automatically make a work profound or interesting. Nick Cave's record was essential because you could hear the devastation at every turn. Sufjan's was massive because it mastered the sound of modern indie folk. This could have just been a series of poems, and no effort is applied to make this into anything more than that. I understand the goal isn't for this to be an interesting listen for consumers, and it is a cathartic vessel for him or whatever, but there's absolutely nothing here of musical significance and he conveys absolutely nothing emotionally to transform this artistically; it's just someone lost and devastated with a guitar. A classic album that does not signify by default.

"Conceptual emptiness was cool to talk about, back before I knew my way around these hospitals."

3.0 goodtransgoggle | March 20th 17

On a meta level, this album ups the ante on maximizing sincerity in musical expression, minimizing the barrier that is the compositional process, for this, as Phil puts it, is "barely music", it sounds like it might as well all be one-take too. In fact it's in such a direct, almost profane way of putting its sensitive (dunno how to put it but you know) subject, it's seriously discomforting at a level where i feel as though it's imposing a question on me, of whether i'm really sure i really want real authenticity in my music, to what degree at least. I'd say no, i'll take fetishism, stagecraft and artisanry tbqhwy. It's not formally uninteresting though, it's pretty much completely in Free Verse structure with the sparse music following suit dynamically. Phil's also really good with closing lines. (I'm not)

I'm genuinely not emotionally ready for this album, and I don't think I've EVER said that from an album's pre-release songs. I just want to give Phil a big hug rHowever as someone who enjoys emotionally demolishing themself with the saddest music imaginable I can't help but be count down the days until this gets released

See what happens? Do you see what happens? When the big black death breathes on you with its breath?

5.0 classicOldCrime | March 24th 17

So heavy. If you thought Skeleton Tree was heartbreaking, this will leave you with nothing left.

5.0 classicLyandr | January 25th 17

Oh boy. He can't even sing and play straight. This is going to be even more intimate than Dawn

PS: I don't like the cover though
