Migos Culture II
On one hand it's rather remarkable how much they've got their shtick down to a science, on the other their ability to incessantly churn it out is extinguished by mindless+egregious excess. No one needs a hundred-plus minutes of Migos, and the handful of slight standouts ain't worth the slog -- this is quintessential quantity over quality; an adequate autopilot mass meant to manipulate streaming platforms and bound to wallow in the background. Given the infinite mentions of the ice they're rockin' and infatuation with further broadening their bank accounts, no shame in the ol illegal download with this one.

Recoil if you must from thatbandname and long-ass album title and lowercase necessity and screamo kicking off 2018. But their organic old-school mien and quiet-loud facility strike a nerve; if too sad or shy or sweet for too long in comes that resounding eruption and the bloodcurdling shrieks for catharsis. Good on the canorous pop-punk immediacy and raw rabidity right along with the tension building and truly tender.

Thrashy and terrifying and extraordinary enough to tolerate the burnt-to-a-crisp trebly production, which don't exactly alleviate their penchant for erratic farragoes -- they make Krallice sound like groovemaster softies. Frontcreature's constant gasp-grunt bizarrely baleful but not the most dynamic of vox; sections of all-encompassing intensity outnumbered by strained slogs camouflaged in commotion; welcome brevity yet feels kinda brusque. Maybe-fave is "Spores": most clear-cut, most cacophonous, second quickest.

Title+cover suggest some sort of lush journey via psychedelic symphony, but alas, it's a short stint of transformative techno. Compact and vivid deliverer of varied virtues -- mystery, ambiance, groove, thud, scuzz, squeal.
