I Love You.
Overall, very solid. Lots of the Tracks on the album are truly excellent (10,000 Emerald Pools, Dopamine, Electric Love) however, it's bogged down by some very boring songs that aren't necessarily bad by any stretch of the imagination, just very uninspired and bland (Overnight Sensation, The Emotion, Holy Ghost) and don't have that awesome "oomph" that my favorite songs on the album have. Overall, it's a killer debut album and BORNS is definitely an artist I'll be looking out for. Because of the first three songs I mentioned (and others that are also good) there's potential here for his next album to be truly brilliant.
The Neighbourhood are well on their way to being one of my favorite bands of the decade; everything on this album has improved on the last album- while some songs are a bit more lackluster (Wiped Out! and Ferrari come to mind) the good songs (RIP 2 My Youth, Prey, Single) are REALLY good. I'd recommend the whole album to a fan of alternative rock- and I'm looking forward to the next album they release.
Nothing horrible, the best on the EP are obviously Copycat and Swimming Stone. The rest is still good but somewhat forgettable. This album doesn't really have that "umph" you'd expect from 20syl because most of the stuff he posts to his soundcloud is better than this album.
