If sputcore consists of bands like Brand New, Converge, Deafhaven, American football, etc. and virigincore consists of Vance Joy, Hozier, Oasis, the overlap is Neutral Milk Hotel. For some reason this band has ingrained themselves into the indie music scene and their most notable body of work, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, has become considered one of the best albums of all time. Similar to how the Amazon TV show “The Boys” became liked and considered “a work of art” soley because Jeff Bezos blew half his bank account on advertising and PR, this band has a ridiculously good reputation though word of mouth and Fantano masturbation. And similar to when one watches the first half an hour of “The Boys”, anyone with a brain will realize they’ve been duped into wasting their time with a pretentious piece of garbage after caving in to the constant recs and giving this project a chance. In the Aeroplane over the Sea is white, indie-adjacent, npr acoustic dad folk at its most unbearable.

If King Crimson is the McDonalds of Prog Rock, this band is the Burger King of indie music because why the hell would anyone choose this to enjoy compared to the hundreds of better alternatives. In the Aeroplane over the Sea is the musical equivalent of a blank piece of paper: plain, white, and featureless.

If you asked me before who this project who “Jeff Magnum” was, I would have guessed a washed up pornstar or a redneck bull rider. Either of those options would be far more interesting than the answer: he provides the ear-grating and horribly shit vocals on this record. I just got done listening to Converge and even their lead singer is better than Jeff Magnum. Losers and nerds will be mad but relisten to “King of Carrot Flowers Pts 2&3” and tell me this isn’t the worst track you’ve ever heard. Not only are the vocals shit here but the bible-thumping message of “I LOVE YOU JEEEEZUSSSSSS CHRAIIIIST” can just fuck off. Yall hated A Written Testimony for being muslim propaganda but at least the music itself was good. I can’t even call the title track a snooze fest, because Magnum’s nails-on-chalkboard voice is the equivalent of waking up at 2 AM in a cold sweat and being unable to go back to sleep. This can be also seen on “Two Headed Boy”, where Mangum’s shrill and off-pitch screaming

combine with a poorly mixed acoustic guitar to create a headache of a track. Plus the first 5 seconds of this track completely rips off the first 5 seconds of “Sometimes” by My Bloody Valentine. (MBV, while pompous and lazy hot trash, is at least a decent listen if you turn your brain off and use it as background noise). “Oh Comely” is a jarring, eight minute drunken rant from Magnum. For an eight minute track you’d expect some sort of variation or energy but here you get a cringeworthy performance complete with off-pitch vocals and a guitar reminiscent of the “ok guys heres wonderwall” meme. This album is a monotonous chore to suffer to at best, and at worst is the musical equivalent of listening to a mangled cat’s dying screams.

The two greatest lies in American history: free will exists and In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is a classic. Because JEEEEEEZUSSSSS CHRAAAAIIIIIZZZZTTTT this album is dogshit. It’s built up such an untouchable and holy reputation among this collective of neckbeards and nerds and maybe in 1998 this was considered mid but it’s just so unbearable to listen to in the year 2020. Jeff Magnum is such a bad singer he makes the Gallagher Twins sound competent in comparison. The concept isn’t even that bad its just horrible execution even the guitarwork is harsh and lacks any sort of delicacy or care. And before you start whining about “well the lyrics are great Jeff you don’t understand”, I don’t care. When your lead singer sounds like Ned Flanders getting waterboarded, and the execution is botched harder than the Mark Sanchez butt fumble, the lyrics go out the window. At least In the Court of the Crimson King had 2 good songs and at least their production was adequate.

Sure, it was corny and boring at times but I could at minimum listen to the album without suffering a migrane (which should at least be the baseline for any sort of musical effort but Magnum fails to even clear that low bar here). Before you think, “well jeff you’re just a contrarian who hates sputcore”, no. I like sputcore that has actual substance or competency like death grips, pink Floyd, American football, yes, and fine even dance gavin dance to an extent. This project really has no redeeming features, Jeff Magnum lacks any sort of talent whatsowever, and is liked only because of a giant circlejerk. I mean come on the flaws are so fucking obvious here, even if you’re one of the nerds this music appeals to you have to admit this project has serious issues and is nowhere near a 3.5 much less a 5. If I wanted to listen to an acoustic-based project for white republican dads I’d listen to the Eagles. this album is confirmed garbage and sucks 1.5/5.
