4.0 excellentBrushedRed | November 5th 15

Emo album that sorta has a shoegaze/dream pop sound. Overall it's a wonderful album but it can drag on a little at times.


4.5 superbandrianoc | October 3rd 15

There's one word that comes to mind when describing this album: 'Lifeless'. How can something sound so good and yet be lifeless at the same time? It amazes me how this album is able to pull something like this off. The arpeggiated guitar playing throughout this album are reminiscent of acts like American Football mixed with a dreamy atmosphere of bands like Wild Nothing. The keys provide a backdrop for the songs which give it such a unique and almost daunting atmosphere. The vocals are also on point. I love how he can be subdued at some points but then on some tracks he increases his range to provide sweet pop vocal melodies. Favorite track is probably the bass-driven "You Sat Alone" which has a great groove throughout the song and an awesome cascading guitar melody in the pre-chorus. My gripes with this album are minimal. The drumming is kind of boring and the ending of "Body Is Dead" is such a huge letdown. The song drops out and builds up to what you think is going to be a brilliant crescendo of some sort and the guitar line for this "crescendo" is such a boring let down. They could have done something so amazing with that ending but instead chose to put some boring guitar part that plays on for way too long. Other than that, this album is amazing and could very well be my AOTY.
