A Mostly 3.5 October
1Dinosaur Jr.
Beyond


[Indie rock/noise rock]

Enjoyable with some wonderful highlights, but most of it is only "good."

Favorite: "What If I Knew"
Least Favorite: "Been There All the Time"

3.5/5
2Funkadelic
Free Your Mind...And Your Ass Will Follow


[Funk]

It's okay, but just listen to Maggot Brain an then try to tell me they're even close in quality...

Favorite: "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow"
Least Favorite: "Friday Night, August 14th"

3/5
3Beck
Colors


[Pop rock/indie pop]

Much better than most people are saying, but also not too huge of a standout.

Favorite: "Colors"
Least Favorite: "Dreams"

3.5/5
4The Knife
Deep Cuts


[Synthpop]

While it has its moments, it's a straight up pop album most of the time. Clearly this was before The Knife was ready to truly get weird. It's really listenable pop though.

Favorite: "You Take My Breath Away"
Least Favorite: "Listen Now"

3.5/5
5Dead Can Dance
Spleen and Ideal


[Neoclassical darkwave/post punk]

This is not nearly as good as Within the Realm, but the highlights are pretty much on the same level. I feel like the guy vocal stands out here more, which is like the opposite of Within the Realm.

Favorite: "The Cardinal Sin"
Least Favorite: "Ascension"

3.5/5
6Lana Del Rey
Ultraviolence


[Indie pop/dream pop]

I do this "Album of the Month" thingy in this group and this was that album. Meh.

Favorite: "Shades of Cool"
Least Favorite: "Money Power Glory"

2.5/5
7The Pop Group
Y


[Post punk/funk]

Upon first listen I was amazing, upon 2nd, 3rd, and 4th listen I was frustrated with how plain the songs ended up sounding. It's like an anti-grower. 2 tracks stayed amazing though.

Favorite: "Thief of Fire"
Least Favorite: "Blood Money"

3/5
8The Pop Group
For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?


[Post punk/funk]

This one was more focused and upbeat, but still kind of plain...

Favorite: "Forces of Oppression"
Least Favorite: "Communicate"

3/5
9Fever Ray
Plunge


[Electronic pop/whatever else Karin feels like being]

This was a pleasant surprise. Sure the s/t is better, but barely. I'm impressed, but I expected as much from Fever Ray.

Favorite: "IDK About You
Least Favorite: "Falling"

4/5
