Day 368: Near To The Wild Heart Of Life by Japandroids

I still love Post-Nothing. This band has gotten some minor backlash in recent times (recent meaning after 2012 I guess) but that album still sounds joyous to me, a soundtrack for high school celebrations gone past. On the other hand, I completely agree with whomever shares my opinion that Celebration Rock is a piece of shit.

This sounds more like Celebration Rock unfortunately. These guys are pretty samey across all their works, but what made their earlier works great is the amount of spark and energy in the performances. This is just too polished, the fuzz and feedback feels too produced. There are some great pop melodies to be found here, but overall this just feels uninspired.

Also, I heard these guys suck live.

Best Track: I'm Sorry (for Not Finding You Sooner)
Rating: 5/10
The above post has a 50% chance of being useless. Potentially. Maybe.
