they vary wildly in quality, but they're mostly good and nice things to have



but yeah wines, the one for this sounded like it was written by a liberal arts undergrad with too much time on his hands and a thesaurus either side of him. also he basically ignores all the lovely guitar stuff and focuses on the lyrics, which are probably the weakest part of this album

That was exactly my beef too!



The only ones in the series i've thought were illuminating were the Spiderland and Kid A ones. Not many of the writers seem willing to adopt a critical lens, which is a shame because the format is rife with potential

Hey some really interesting albums are covered in this series, would really wonder what'll give a commentary on Swordfishtrombones, 20 Jazz Funk Greats or Zaareika

they seem to lean more toward fanboys than critical analysts, which can work but also backfire an equal amount of the time



apart from this i've only got the 69 love songs one (which is about half great) and the nation of millions one (which is awesome). nice to hear kid a is good though, i've been mooting getting that next
