musical taste

John-Allison Weiss Say What You Mean (Sideways Sessions)
The lyrics can be great and some hooks too. But for the most part musically - and I don't know if it is just this live version's fault or that's what John-Allison Weiss makes usually - this is a bland indie people used to laugh at in the 00s. At least some occasional surprise instrumental sections add some pleasant personality (like the horns that entirely turn the opener around).
Ricky Martin PAUSA
I really fail to see how this is more than generic radio-pop EP. Some songs are a little more atmospheric, some a little nicer melodically, but it's all the same mud. Wouldn't have guessed this is Ricky Martin. Then again, what is a style indicative of him?
Baths Romaplasm
A pop album left-field enough to feel fresh, but also familiarly sounding enough not to be too challenging. Plenty of great songs, some duds too. The writing that feels purposefully shapeless is exciting, but also makes some songs feel like repetition of the same idea.
Planningtorock Powerhouse
I really hate the vocal effects and the songs often feel to plain. It's like the title is ironic.
Against Me! New Wave
Springsteen really ruined music for generations after him, didn't he? Cause now any anthemic song with raspy vocal is immediately Springsteen-like. And every half-decent punk band that fails to punk in the first place turns to him for inspiration. Not Against Me!'s worst, but a forgettable experience nonetheless with many songs falling short. Current state of the singer notwithstanding, I'd call this too cock-rock-sided.
Against Me! Transgender Dysphoria Blues
I don't know if it is the fiery passion and invigorated spirit from finally coming out that gave her the energy for this album, but after most of their discography falling absolutely flat for me, 'Transgender Dysphoria Blues' is finally a solid album, vocally strong and memorable in melodies. Some songs fall a little short and don't punch nearly as hard as they could have, but they are not prevalent.
Dool Summerland
I do say, this is a mixed bag. A thick gothic atmosphere and good vocals are great and the instrumentals get you all excited and you wait patiently for it to blow you away. And it never does. The songwriting is not always interesting (and even when it is, only in choruses) and the sound of it is just a little bland and forgettable. It's an album with a lot of potential, but it's also quite disappointing.
