Day 522: Outer Peace by Toro Y Moi

Reviewing an early leak! Is it unethical? Maybe. Do I care? Nah. Last time I reviewed one of this guy's releases was 2013, back during that initial review challenge... ima go look back at that real quick.

That was awful. And it was 2015 actually.

Some of these production choices are a bit questionable. The "ahh ahh ahh"s in Freelance or some of the sound effects in Who Am I are just plain goofy-sounding, and bring the songs down a bit although not to the point of unpleasantness. Also, the last two tracks are basically trap songs, or rather dude's attempt to mix his style with trap, and neither are good.

Considering how samey this genre often is, I applaud the dude's attempt at genre and mood blending but it led to a pretty frontloaded album overall.

Best Track: Laws Of The Universe
Rating: 6/10

Day 523: Buoys by Panda Bear

Cranked and Master are the best cuts here. I also enjoyed Dolphin and Token, then the rest range from meh-to-agitating (a rarity, I didn't enjoy the opening track nor the title track). The vocal effects here are nowhere near as ethereal or as, well, necessary as Person Pitch and I feel I would've enjoyed a rawer approach more.

Still almost definitely better than an Avey Tare's solo work that I'm not gonna delve further into.

Best Track: Master

Day 524: Quantum Field by Pogo

The first two tracks are too good for the rest of the album, and most of the rest of the album is still decent

Day 525: I Am > I Was by 21 Savage

The copy I have of this is very slightly misordered (is that's word? I'm not googling), putting the opener as the third track instead. I think I prefer it this way, mainly because the stupid-yet-infectious A&T works as a much better second track due to immediate juxtaposition while feeling oddly jarring placed as third.

Anyways, I came into this with supremely low expectations, but color me surprised, I actually enjoyed this more than Astroworld and Die Lit. Some tracks would benefit from a more aggressive delivery, but most fit his rapping style very well, and considering I actually somewhat enjoyed Childish Gambino's feature in Monster I feel obligated to say the features are great. Variety is indeed the spice of life.

There were some tracks I didn't enjoy, although strangely the banger attempts are more hit-or-miss than the more personal cuts, and some of the lyrics are ass-stupid ("I want you to suck me like you suckin' your thumb" what the fuck lol) but overall this is remarkably consistent without really getting boring.

I told yall 525 was gonna suck. Also I fucked up the capitalization.

Best Track: Monster or Ball Without You although I'd rather hear A&T in the club

Day 526: New Generation by Saint Pepsi

Impulse hangover listen. Not very good. Doing this to save the score. I'm starting to think Prom King was a flash in the pan.

Day 527: Bird Box by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

I have not watched this movie and will not until someone else forces me to watch it with them. I used to be BIG into Nine Inch Nails... when I was about 12, and now too much of their music either comes across as cringy to me or reminds me of cringe-ass 12 year old me. Some songs are good, usually the sex ones, but my favorite release of theirs nowadays is probably Ghosts I-IV as hit-or-miss as that one is. Based on the very little I remember of other soundtracks these two did (from watching the movies, like The Social Network and...) this should be right up my alley.

Is Sleep Deprivation supposed to be a redux of that crying song in Twin Peaks? You know the one. I swear some of the progressions are near identical matchups.

I was about to try and write an actually good review but nah this album really doesn't deserve it. Meh.

Best Track: What Isn't Anymore
Rsting: 5/10
