3.0 goodbutthead | July 7th 21

Damn, this might be my least favorite of the Fantano 10s lol. I can appreciate what’s going on here, but the
vocals are 100% not for me.

4.5 superbLucman | July 9th 21

Once the strings in Little Deer hit, I knew this was something special. And I was right. This is pure, dazzling brilliance.

6 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicThe Endless Empty | June 25th 21

Gorgeous arranged instrumentals, amazing vocal performances, songs that twist and change into new and exciting moments especially in the second half. AOTY easily.

2.0 poorAvarice climbing on a vertebral ladder. | July 7th 21

I can appreciate the songwriting, but god the vocals are horrifically bad I'm sorry.

4 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentcharlopiano | July 9th 21

When I learned that Fantano gave a 10 to a pop record, I got pretty hyped, turns out it's really good, and I think it'll grow on me with each additional listen.

3.0 goodRyus | June 26th 21

this might actually kind of suck overall but boys at school is amazing

3 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicReefaJones | July 7th 21

This only gets better with each listen. Spellling is like a mix of Kate Bush and Janet
Jackson at their best. Easily album of the year.


2 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbDjang0 | July 7th 21

Second half is absolutely spectacular, would've preferred a full album of that.

Edit: Yeah the first half grew on me too, just not crazy about the first couple tracks.
This thing is amazing if you give it more than 2 seconds of your attention and time

3.5 greatErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | July 19th 21

While the sophisti-pop instrumentals are absolute beauty, damn this voice do be grating. Second half picks it up - maybe because she sings less lel. 3.3

3.0 goodXSebbyMcMuffinX | July 16th 21

This is sonically engaging, but most of the music just doesn't envelope me. Like... there really isn't any one particular quality I see as done exceedingly well. It's just a solid record, and probably amazing to a certain niche of people. Vocals grew on me a little, but I really couldn't help but think "wow, Fantano really knows people will eat up his opinion. Is he low-key trolling with this 10?" Ultimately, "sonically engaging" and "sounds like Disney" are the strongest qualities here...

3.5 greatBrandon Bzduch | July 13th 21

There are some really great ideas and moments here, but this is not a 10. Like at all. Dude just wanted that interview.

4.0 excellentChambered79 | July 12th 21

Hate to say it but Fantano is on the money here. This is a wonderfully produced pop album with
excellent lyrics and songwriting, and a bonafide song of the year contender in Boys At School. I
hear some Kate Bush and Mike Patton influences which are never
a bad thing. Probably the best album of the year.

2.0 poorMetaxu | July 12th 21

vocals sound like someone chewing with their mouth open.

1 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicquetzal | July 12th 21

might be album of the year what a ride, what a mysterious ride

vocals are absolutely awesome too, don't listen to the haters.


1 Bumps | Bump

2.0 poorDoofDoof | July 10th 21

this goes on and on - a voice worthy of one drunken rendition of ‘Happy Birthday, Mr President’ stretched to
infinity and way beyond


1 Bumps | Bump

3.0 good2ool | July 9th 21

why is everyone hating the vocals

1 Bumps | Bump

3.0 goodFiniteLoop | July 8th 21

Once the strings in Little Deer hit, I knew this was not for me. Still somewhat enjoyable though. The switchup on revolution kicks ass.

3.5 greatDaneleslie | July 7th 21

Clearly a great record, gimme some time with it lol

1 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicPrincyAli | July 31st 21

This feels like a reimagined Kate Bush singing every character's songs in a mysterious, haunting and thrilling Disney princess movie. That being said, it's spellbinding and enchanting. 4.95/5 Favs: All of them

Bump

4.5 superbThe Aspie Fantastie | July 23rd 21

For some certainly difficult to stomach vocals turned out a grand delight for me. If you manage to get over her voice, you will be treated to beautifully arranged, sophisticated fairy-tale the scope of which deserves a much brighter and more striking cover art.

Bump

4.0 excellentJasonCarne | July 16th 21

I didn't find this all that special on first listen, but it's since gotten better with every listen for me - already bumped from a 3.5 to a 4, I could see this maybe going higher in time. There are some really great moments across this album.
