Day 900: World Famous Tour by Wavedash

Checking out the people who are opening for Anamanaguchi when I see them this Sunday besides CFCF (who is the artist I'm most hyped for by far). I expected this album to suck, and for a good chunk of it, it did. But some of the tracks, particularly the opener and a good chunk of the back half, were surprisingly quite good! The rest is corny bullshit that'll definitely be fun to dance to but makes for lame headphone work listening.

Best Track: Void; Reciprocate, Love

Day 901: Colors II by Between The Buried and Me (Album Choice: Deadlyx39)

I saw Injury Reserve last night and it was fucking INSANE and gave me a newfound appreciation for their latest album when I listened to it again last night, gonna bump that to an 8. Also I adored Slauson Malone's performance, but it was ridiculously avant-garde and the crowd blatantly hated it, which made my inner contrarian enjoy it even more.

Also, I've listened to this album 3 times over the past week and I enjoyed it but it really is just way too long. But I rarely like wanky progressive stuff so the fact that I enjoyed it is already impressive. Is it as good as Colors One? No. But it's still pretty good.

3 3s in a row! What's the jackpot?

I know for a fact David that you only recommended this one because you're thirsty as fuck for her, but this album wasn't bad. It wasn't amazing either. A perfectly pleasant but uninspiring listen throughout, with the exception of one song that bordered on Drum and Bass.

Day 908: LP! by JPEGMAFIA

This is like an in-between of the styles of Veteran and the last album he dropped. This is better than Cornballs but not better than Veteran. I'm writing this review from work because I listened to this album 3 times during work. You know damn well whether or not you're gonna listen to this, and you know damn well that my opinion isn't a guarantee of whether or not you'll like this.

I wonder if I made the right decision skipping this live show to see Skrillex and Wax Motif instead.

Best Track: KISSY, FACE EMOJI! (I'm glad it wasn't REBOUND! because that would hurt me to say)

Day 911: Sensational by Erika de Casier

This is a pretty good album, pleasant throughout, short enough to rarely get boring to me and good performance throughout. It's lacking a certain oomph though that stops it from being great to me and I don't know why. Stylistically, this is NOTHING like Lianne La Havas but that's the closest vibe I can think of that I actually absolutely adored. Comparisons are stupid.

Day 912: Civilisation by Kero Kero Bonito (Album Choice: my old roommate)

I never liked this band, but the singer's guest appearance on the latest CFCF album was absolutely divine. Before listening to this I listened to the sequel EP, which had two decent tracks and a wild closer. This album is pretty good! I'm surprised how much I like it, it feels like a tribute to 16-bit gaming in a way.

So for fun I decided to go back and try out Bonito Generation again and holy fuck this is still terrible. Oh well, still hoping they're a lot of fun live.

Day 914: An Evening With Silk Sonic by Silk Sonic

Can't say anything contrarian about this one, it's really good, short, sweet and all killer. I hate Bruno Mars and want better Asian representation in music than him (and the other people I can think of like Rich Brian and Joji are way, way, way worse) so I'ma give all the credit to my man Anderson Paak for this being as good as it is.

You don't need me to write any more, don't complain that I put zero effort in this, everyone and their mama has already listened to this shit I'm late as fuck.

Day 916: We Had Good Times Together, Don't Forget That by Sewerslvt

Also not as good as their other album from this year, although several tracks bang, especially in the middle. WAYYYY too fucking long, only memoryland this year has justified its asinine ass long length out of any album I've bumped.

Which reminds me, I'm bumping memoryland to a 10/10. Legitimately the best album I've heard in the past 5 or 6 years.

I liked this better than Charmed and it ALMOST justifies its obscenely long runtime. Almost. If this was 100 minutes instead of 150 I'd say it justifies it. Still very good though.

Day 924: In the Court of the Dragon by Trivium (Album Choice: katanaeyegaming)

I came into this one expecting to be bored to tears, but actually it was quite fun! A little overlong in my opinion and definitely wanky, but the riffs here are mostly pretty sick. This isn't a subgenre of metal I know super well which means that this is probably pretty accessible to what a metal snob would call a "plebian" and it's up to you to tell yourself if that's a good or bad thing.

People who are writing top 2021 albums lists for magazines and Pitchfork-esque websites are jizzing all over this album so I came in wanting to hate it.

But I can't, this isn't amazing to me but it's well-made, doesn't overstay its welcome and is just gorgeous in general. Good shit.

Well, it's an improvement over the last one of hers I listened to, which I guess makes sense as she matures. This started out really strong, started to annoy me around track 3, and kept annoying me until it closed with 2 really strong cuts. Should've been an EP.
