Review Summary: Back in Black Malachite

This is shit. Simply shit. The only other word that comes to mind is embarrassing. The electronic elements sound no better than something your average high schooler with an Ableton 30 day free trial is uploading to SoundCloud. The only difference is that this album is horrifically overproduced. It’s the plastic they use to wrap plastic. Every third or fourth track contains a boilerplate nu-metal guitar riff that would have sounded stale in nineteen-fucking-ninety-nine, and the only reason there’s guitar at all is that oh yeah, BMTH isn’t a dude with a mic and a laptop, it’s a fucking rock band with a guitarist and a bassist. There’s actually a song where they get the like female Microsoft Sam to say “mantra” and it leads into a "hard" guitar riff and it’s just pure cringe. BMTH are known for embarrassing lyrics, but Amo launches them into the stratosphere. “Some people are a lot like clouds you know❓” Christ Oli, were you going through old boxes and you came across some poetry you wrote in primary school and you thought to yourself “yeah, this was perfect when I scribbled it into the urinal partition in the locker room bathroom, I bet it will be even more perfect on my new major label record”. Imagine Dragons wouldn’t even put their name on this crap, at least they know their music is designed for waiting in line at the supermarket. I can’t believe this used to be a deathcore band and now they make music for car commercials and elevators. But hey, who am I to say, some people might get something out of this record, cuz hey, some people are a lot like clouds you know❓
