Neil Young Colorado
Apart from the fact that it's very nice to meet Neil Young with the Crazy Horse, Colorado doesn't sound like an outdated old man's album or like a come back album. It's amazing how a legend like him, at 73 years old (almost 74), is still as immoral, untouchable, passionate and authentic. Colorado sounds like its time because it is well written, interpreted like no one could have. Damn, from the second track you have a 10-minute marathon that keeps you on hold. It is remarkable to be able to do this and above all to convey a culture that is not yet dead, and that it will probably never be in the end
Caroline Polachek Pang
Pang is a singular and diversified album without ever losing its coherence. At first I didn't make the connection because she was part of the Chairlift group because she sounded like a young new artist with a delirium, an imagery and a very modern sound of her own. She has appropriated the latest HipHop sounds (trap in particular), Rnb and electronics to confront her with a Pop sometimes Glitch, sometimes Baroque, sometimes Psychédélic and after checking it doesn't surprise me that she is working with Béyoncé or Travis Scott for example. Beyond that, Pang is meticulously controlled from start to finish, it's catchy, attractive and brilliant.
Gucci Mane Woptober II
Woptober II is the best project since DropTopWop (i. e. for almost 2 years) and it is great. In general, see almost all the time with a few exceptions, Guwop delivers us mixtapes much better than his albums and you will never be disappointed with the results of these. On Woptober, Gucci is in good shape and multiplies the good performances, production and beats are as usual very well managed, then we really feel the remodelled Trap sounds that Gucci has been known for during these glorious years. It's not fantastic either, but there are some very good moments here like Highly Recommended (i love it), Tootsies or his verse on Bucking The Syste
Third Eye Blind Screamer
I generally agree with JWT155's comment. Third Eye Blind (and more particularly its leader Stephan Jenkins) tried to make music on Screamer for young teenagers (whom they no longer do), already well overtaken by time, when he was 55 years old. Damn, it's the father who shames his kids when he drops them off at school, a few steps away so the other kids don't see them. Moreover, it's too generic to hope to save something here, it's very easy to become which path each track will take and also to anticipate (big) mistakes. Not to mention that there are totally horrible tracks, 2x Tigers, Who Am I, Got So blind...
Foals Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2
The second part is a beautiful sequel, less electronic but more lively, more rock, as if Foals' triumph ends with a fireworks display. Even if this suite could have been released as a single album, it wouldn't have been as good, it has much more interest and gains in value because it is very complementary and not so stackable. It's incredible after a premiere that I love so much, to have beautiful tracks like The Runner, Into The Surf etc... again that are really fun for me. Moreover, it was an excellent choice for me to have divided the album in two, because it allows me to make the album live over a long period of time, which is rare nowada
Foals Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1
Even if nothing here is a musical innovation, nor their best album, it is a beautiful evolution of Foals which shows above all how they can build us again a solid and ambitious album after so much production, with some fantastic and very well written music (Exit, Café D'Athens, Sunday etc...). As the listening goes on, I love this album more and more and more and it's not an easy feat to do, especially with a band that's already installed and has done what they know how to do, without upsetting everything. The whole is fun, coherent while it is quite diversified, it's rare to have so many good tracks. It's already strong, without forgetting
G-Eazy Scary Nights
Trying to avoid saying that this rapper is the archetype of the uninteresting rapper who just knows how to rap who has made a commercial breakthrough because most of his audience is sorely lacking in basics and musical spirit (which is what is ultimately respected), I realize that I just did it, but it was stronger than me. This new EP Scary Nights comes (as if by chance) as the movie Joker has just created a tidal wave by breaking records and shows how close the rapper's level of inspiration is to nothing. The atmosphere is therefore dark and nocturnal which is not the weak point of this record, on the contrary, it is especially that his rap
