Gene - the rater of either 3.0 or 4.0,

Fange Perdition
Fange first broke out through their immaculate provocative industrial sludge and black metal fusion, but now seem to be reliant on releasing the same thing repeatedly on autopilot. I still like it, but it feels lazy and unnecessary, especially as album after album they constantly show less and less reason or ideas for existing.
Claire Rousay Sentiment
Bedroom indietronica with autotune to last you the rest of the year. Greatly patient in its substance and pace, but has lovely atmospheric gems sprinkled around. That said, a lot here still falls a little flat, what with the autotune being as jarring as it is and disrupting the already mild flow.
Sir Sly You Haunt Me
A lot of easy earworms amid a lot of sterile commercial-friendly drivel. In one ear, out the other oh so swiftly.
The Smiths The Queen Is Dead
Thanks to Morrissey for making me have a bad aftertase in my mouth after listening to this, one of the best albums ever made. Fucking twat
Piebald When Life Hands You Lemons
This is the kind of ugly that only passion-driven 90s emo could deliver, all wrapped in a silken veil of cute silliness and amateur mathiness.
Grace Cummings Ramona
On 'Ramona', Grace Cummings blesses us with all that has been teased on her work before, as well as what has been built up by decades of alt-country and indie folk fusion progression, now finally culminating in a subtle yet cathartic explosion of haunting laungy vintage chamber music.
Neil Young On the Beach
Neil Young is to me an entity easier to appreciate tangentially and enjoy casually than really love andcrave deeper dives into. I find so much of his music appealing and easy to like, but never that easy to love. That is mostly due to his too loose a song-writing technique that mostly leaves a lot of room to want a more satisfying tune or a melody or a hook or sth.

  • SteakByrnes Yes! lol but ya that song is def like the dark horse candidate for my favorite on the album, I think they do an amazing job of building it up to a huge climax where Roland is belting the FIND OUTTT part

  • SteakByrnes I saw your sound off for big chair and I gotta say, less Working Hour is a very offensive crime that will put you in prison for years to come!
