Day 742: SAWAYAMA by Rina Sawayama

Internalized racism made me assume off the bat this was gonna be some J-Pop or other weeb shit. It isn't, and she's based in the UK without an Asian accent. It sounds like Myspace-era scene girl music most of the time. A mix of weirdo dance-pop and lame alt metal that straight up just does not appeal to me.

This album is well-made, but I don't think I enjoyed any song in full. I'm really not the target audience here I feel, so I do feel bad giving this a low rating, but I've gotta be honest. The entire time I was just annoyed and thinking "why am I listening to this?". Maybe I'll like one of her future albums, if she does a complete stylistic 180 that is (or to be quite honest, just ditched the cringy metal side of things), because if it's more like this I have no interest.

Also, how many fucking songs have used the main melody that is in Chosen Family?

Best Track: Comme Des Garçons (Like the Boys)

You might have seen this already but

Not gonna pretend it's 10/10 stuff but despite hating some of the lyrics I found the album worth my time

Day 744: Set My Heart On Fire Immediately by Perfume Genius

Listened twice and I can't think of a single useful sentence to say, that about summarizes my opinion on this one.

Best Track: On The Floor (not as good as the IceJJFish song tho)

Day 745: Dedicated Side B by Carly Rae Jepsen

The weird thing is I enjoy this more than the original album. That being said, it starts out AMAZINGLY with the first 4 tracks, then the rest peters off with a couple of good cuts in between a sea of boring and bland. Still, I can recommend this without qualms. Fun dance-y stuff that feels like an 80s throwback but with backing tracks that would be absolute BANGERS in the club as instrumentals

Best Track: Stay Away

7/10 seems to be a good r-word cutoff for whether I should go check something out.

Day 746: Will This Make Me Good by Nick Hakim

I got really drunk, listened to this last night and thought "yo this album fucking slaps".

Then I woke up this morning, listened to this album again and thought "yo this album fucking slaps". I'm a sucker for lo-fi production, and this feels like a sort of less depressing cousin to Solace. Definite new fave.

Best Track: Bouncing

Day 747: Purple Moonlight Pages by R.A.P. Ferreira

AKA Milo the rapper. Not Yiannopolopodopolis. Just like the 2017 album of his I reviewed, this has good-to-fantastic beats and pretty decent lyrics, but at times I found it cringy and boring.

That's all I'm gonna say for this one everyone else is hyping the fuck out of it (or was) way more than me you don't need my opinion.

Best Track: Ro Talk

Day 748: WUNNA by Gunna

About a year and a half ago I listened to Drip Season 3 and found it incredibly boring.

Now, I listen to dude's newest album and... It's literally just as boring? This dude hasn't even tried to make any improvements or stylistic shifts? What the fuck man

Best Track: the one with Travis Scott

Day 751: Cenizas by Nicolas Jaar

I remember I said that I should save this for posterity. And then I didn't. And then the website reset again even though literally no extra data from the past week has come up. Genius. Anyways, Lady Gaga gets either a 5 or 6, Jeff Rosenstock gets either a 5 or 6, or they're both 5s. I don't remember except they're definitely not both 6s. Also I'm saving this one right after I hit "Post Quick Reply". It gets a 7.

Best Track: Garden

Day 752: RTJ4 by Run The Jewels

Also saving this one right after I hit the reply button. This one isn't as good as Run The Jewels 3 but it's still damn solid. I'm not in love with every beat and a few of the hooks are questionable, but still a damn fine album.

Best Track: A Few Words For The Firing Squad

Killswitch Engage released some Atonement B-Sides, dunno if you'll like em any better than the actual album from last year tho cause I remember you not liking it.

Also Lamb of God's self-titled album is coming out next week.
