5.0 classicJoyfulPlatypus | June 6th 21

I don?t remember the last time I gave an album a 5 so quickly, but this is one of the best indie albums of the last handful of years. This hit some kind of chord with me that I just can?t adequately explain.

And a masterpiece has been introduced into world. A grand vast soaring musical journey with big production

Indie at its best, definitely a contender for AOTY

Gotta love 2020s albums that try to sound like 90s' ones. In its gnarliest moments, Blue Weekend is a fierce nod to grunge, and, in its dreamier tracks, recalls how important shoegaze was. Still, notwithstanding the stylistic leaps the band strives to achieve, da album's real MVP is Ellie Roswell. Her vocals, whether drenched in reverberations or reminding the 90s' rock fury, are - almost - always the best thing happening in a song: when the song is already great, it becomes greater; when the song is meh, it becomes passable. In these instances, it's big, but bland. Most of the time, it's big. 3.6

The first eight tracks on this album have so much potential to be some of the greatest alternative rock and dream pop songs to have been written in 20 plus years. There is a grand sense of building and detail to be had with each of these eight tracks that its hard not to bob your head along and tap your foot. Although the 90?s influence is rich, it feels like a great celebration of what that era of music brought to rock music. With that being said, however, the last three tracks (?The Last Man On Earth?, ?No Hard Feelings?, and ?The Beach II?) are concrete sounds and examples of why that 90?s sound completely killed itself in the early 2000?s. They are completely boring with a huge lack of coherence and direction that the rest of the album has. I honestly have never been so disappointed when the first 8 songs are high quality and the last three songs leaving me thinking ?WTF happened with this; who let this happen?. Completely derails the listening experience and reminds me why Wolf Alice will always be a huge band with a lot of following but never finish an album well since each of their three records now has this issue.

3.0 goodSlex | June 4th 21

Big and boring. Suffocating production and feigned edginess. There's some great songs to be found here but on the whole, I'm not seeing the hype in the slightest.
