Default Re: Recommend me some 2018 albums halp

Day 541: New Atlantis by Efdemin

Is the album title the theme that this guy was going for? The vocals in the beginning and spoken word in the final track both suck ass, let's get that out of the way. Some of these tracks, ESPECIALLY the title track (which is also the longest cut) and Black Sun, are groovy enough that they could keep a club going if just played on loops. The rest are just... weird and not in an interesting way. The appropriately titled Temple just sounds like a lost SNES game song, At The Strangers House feels like a weird, crappy bastard child of Nine Inch Nails and Boards Of Canada and I already complained about those first and last tracks.

Strip away all the fat and you're left with a decent little half-hour album. As it stands this is way overlong and it's mostly the fault of the shorter tracks and interludes.

Best Track: New Atlantis
Rating: 5.5/10
The above post has a 50% chance of being useless. Potentially. Maybe.
