Toby Driver Live at Roulette, March 2017

Beck Colors
Upbeat, almost to a fault, Colors sees Beck return to writing pop rock hits for the first time in nearly a decade. This is yet another new direction however, with glossy, modern production and pop hooks galore. While a bit one dimensional in this way, the songs are diverse enough to keep attention for the 40 minute run time.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor Luciferian Towers
An enjoyable, if slightly unmemorable series of experiments

The Contortionist Clairvoyant
A solid and enjoyable follow-up to Language, if a bit less compelling overall. The middle section of songs are the most adventurous and memorable. There is plenty of excellent songwriting and soaring melodies here, but the song structures themselves don't quite develop with as much punch or impact as I feel like they could. A couple tracks are also almost too straightforward, but everything still works well.

The National Sleep Well Beast
A masterful departure from recent predecessors, The National enter a new era of their sound with further musical experimentation. Some moments recall Alligator, others Radiohead even. Everything falls into place masterfully, being the best album of the year. "The System Dreams...," "Guilty Party," "I Will Destroy You," and the final two tracks are highlights.

  • Toondude10 dude, whenever you get a chance I highly recommend checking out Arcane Roots. Their latest album might honestly be my favorite of the year.
