3.5 greatcjbizzlebizzle | June 22nd 18

Dissonant, chaotic and noisy post punk with a whole lot of other subtle influences and a nice contrast between the two vocalists. The guitar work and instrumental material in general deserves high praise due to it's abstract and unique nature. Nothing about the album is straightforward but it flows along very smoothly and naturally. Gareth Liddiard's vocals are probably not for everyone. At times it is a bit hard to buy his manic, desperate sounding vocals. His approach general comes down to him rambling on about real world issues and after four to five tracks this gets a bit repetitive and tiring. The album starts off with a massive bang in "You Let My Tyres Down' and comes close to reaching that quality again but not quite; this one is somewhat frontloaded and the quality fades in the latter half. A must listen due to its unique nature but after ten or more listens the magic starts to fade.

"uhhhh butch idk what album ur listening to but this is clearly using a lot of the electronic
equipment that defined the sound of feelin kinda free, and is once again another step forward for
liddiard's constant boundary pushing "

Yeah, I don't know how you can listen to a song like Two Afternoons and not notice how much it
takes from the sound of a song like "Then They Came for Me".

4.5 superbnigelgrab | May 16th 18

This is an incredible post punk experience with a touch of psych rock influence. Full review coming up. But people need to hear this manic and fantastic rock album.

4.5 superbnoahconstrictor | May 14th 18

First off, you can't really go wrong with a band called Tropical Fuck Storm. You know you're in for a fun time by the band name already. Going in, I was expecting some fun, trippy stuff, and I wasn't disappointed one bit. The riffs are meaty and heavy, the vocals are varied and the lyrics are top notch, and everything else just melds into this amazing orchestra of sound. Certainly worth multiple listens just to fully dissect everything that's happening.
