Godsticks The Envisage Conundrum
I guess there's props in wanting to take a more aggressive sound, but this album doesn't still pales ever slightly to the instrumentals & vocal sections of their first album. Again, NOT a bad album. This record just doesn't offer anything I haven't heard since their first.
Borialis What You Thought You Heard
Instrumentals on most of the tracks from the first half of the album tend to sound too similar, esp from the guitar and bass work. Some songs meet the exception (ex Toughen the Bones). Still not impressive as their first effort however marginal.
Nujabes Sweet Sticky Thing
More of an R&B sound emitting from this mixtape. The transitions from song to song are a mixed bag when compared to Nujabes' Cuisine Ristorante mixtape. Some pairings work really well while there're some that sound more abrupt upon first hearing (and later repetitive hearings). Still a great preview of the future Nujabes' catalogue to come. Check out archive dot org for the album!
Janus Influx
Ouch... I think I now know why this album has been buried for so long. Hyping this as having "-a sound similar to bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool and Soundgarden" (Wiki) likely overhyped my expectations for this record. AT LEAST it's now here for all the Internet to hear. I just cannot un-hear those drum sections...
Frogwings Croakin' At Toads
A mostly instrumental jam rock album w/ some muddled vocal sections. I blame the production mostly, otherwise a pretty decent effort.
The Verve Urban Hymns
FKA Twigs Magdalene
Idk... I wanted to like this album more, but it sounds a tad too aggressive to enjoy this as another R&B album staple. Tracks 2, 4, and 5 are my personal highlights for this record. Keep doing trip hop proud Ms Twigs!

  • Britch2tiger @AndSalx - In the tracklist I posted an Archive dot org link where I archived the sound files in a compressed zip. Enjoy listening.

  • Britch2tiger @AndSalx - Open your Shoutbox. I managed to request soundfiles from a Discogs account, out of the few that own a copy of the album (THAT was an awesome late Christmas gift). Sadly it was very overhyped - predictable but thankful to have finally heard.
