Day 512: Lush by Snail Mail

This is not Mary Lynn Rajskub.

Why is this on every publication's year end list for 2018 I don't get it. This is perfectly average indie rock and the songs all sound the same to me. Also her vocal tics annoy me a bit though just barely.

Best Track: Pristine
Rating: 5/10

Day 513: K.T.S.E by Teyana Taylor (Album Choice: mead1)

Pretty consistent album, with the only tracks I outright disliked being Rose In Harlem and the agitating closer WTP, and I liked some of the samples in the latter. Are there other Kanye projects to check out (also I barely noticed his verse lol)? I'm not listening to the white power aryan girl even if she denounced those fools.

Huh, it seems the tracks I disliked are people's favorites. Ah well.

Best Track: Hurry

Day 514: Time by Louie Cole (Album Choice: Jonlovesddr)

1. The ratio of soft, dreamier songs to more upbeat tracks is WAY too high
2. This album is too long

Cut out about half of the slower tracks and this might make my top 10. The good tracks are bouncy good fun.

Best Track: Weird Part Of The Night

Day 515: Chapel Perilous by Gnod

I swear every newer noise rock album I've heard in recent years is trying to go for that crushing Swans style, which isn't a bad thing but where is my acidic Brainiac-esque noise? Where's the weirdness of Guerilla Toss (since they quit making noise) or the goofiness of Cows? Some variety goddamnit.

Anyways, the first track and last track on this album are fucking phenomenal. The other tracks are filler bullshit. Ho-hum but luckily they make up the majority of the album.

Best Track: Donovan's Daughters
Rating: 6/10 (this would be a 9/10 EP)

Day 516: Sekundenschlaf by тпсб

Copying and pasting that title was a pain in the ass.

These first couple tracks match up with ubering in a highway tunnel at dusk really, really well.

Outside of that not, this isn't all that memorable even if a few tracks are pretty dope. I expect this will hold up well to repeat listens, at least, although two didn't make me notice anything significant.

It's not that the vocals were bad, they were adequate, but I might actually have gotten more enjoyment out of this if it were fully instrumental. Also I'm starting to think the next good review will be 550. Or later. Or maybe never who gives a shit lol

Day 521: The Visitors by ABBA

I decided to listen to this randomly because

A. There was a random RYM thread about Dancing Queen which I unironically like even after being stuck hearing it every day I worked this summer.
2. I see this album on a lot of "most depressing albums ever" or "top heartbreak albums" lists

Aaaand... it's not that good. A few cuts are fairly sad, yeah, particularly during the second half of the original track listing, but this is mostly just the same brand of disco-pop from the few hits of theirs I've heard, except not nearly as catchy. Very meh on this.

Best Track: Should I Laugh Or Cry? or The Day Before You Came including bonus tracks

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

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 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
