This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.

This has some phenomenal songs, and even on the tracks that don't necessarily work as a whole there are quite a few absolutely gorgeous moments, but it seems there's just as much loud lo-fi white noise at times as well. Maybe it'll grow on me more, enjoying it nonetheless.

It's 2016 and Sam Ray still hates himself and makes shitty music about it. Sweet.

Your college radio station's favorite record of the year. Congrats everyone, we've reached peak
bandcamp-core dead eyed better looking than me white guys making deliberately "difficult", sorta lo-
fi music about depression, drugs, small town minutae, etc, but in an ironic way. But this one is the
masterpiece because it's over an hour long@!!

2.5 averageTheManMachine | June 16th 16

Album Title Interpretation: Teen Suicide Suicides Name and Go Out With Big Sprawling Bang. By Big I mean 26 tracks in an eternity-seeming 68 minutes, and by Sprawling I mean winding barrage of sketchy+washed out lo-fi-rock that's charming in its let-it-all-hang-out grandeur but oh so overtly overkill. It's defiantly dense, warmth and melancholy and awkwardness and dollops of psychedelia and incoherence run amuck amid the bedroom acoustics+pianos and choral-cooer lullabies and cozy electronix, doses of fuzz-n-scuzz are fairly forcible and depraved, respectively -- but the ratio of solid standout tunes and seemingly one-off/kinda forgettable inconsequentials is excessively lopsided, and like, not in the good way. And outta this whole ungodly-sized mass, the apex might just be the opener.

4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | April 5th 16

It's a bit hard to pin down what Teen Suicide's swan song actually is. You could say it's experimental, lo-fi indie, but that just doesn't cut it as a description of the sound here. It takes root in bedroom-style acoustic indie, but influences from Midwestern emo, indie pop, various electronic genres, art rock, and straightforward alt-rock. Sam Ray, a polarizing figure to begin with, is at his best (or worst, depending on your opinion of him) on this album, and the extensive variety of the tracks makes it easy to get sucked into it. The lyrics deal with life's perceived banalities, the people, places, and things we mistakenly take for granted, and view them in a much more profound light. Thus, they're pretty relatable, and in some cases heartbreaking to hear coming from Ray's evocative vocals. The songwriting is catchy, as most of the songs here have latent pop sensibilities along with a variety of nuances too numerous for one soundoff. It goes without saying that all those who collaborated along with Ray put their skills to good use as well, as It's The Big Joyous Celebration... is quite the remarkable send-off for this memorable project.
