Day 891: Luminol by Midwife

This album is also very same-y... Yet I enjoyed just letting myself lay and wash in the reverb-y vibes the whole time, and not a single second felt wasted. Hooray that I like something.

Best Track: 2020

Day 892: Antiphonals by Sarah Davachi

My brain is sad and broken and this collection of loops hits my brain hard.

When will life be enjoyable again?

Best Track: Seriously, when?

Day 893: Montero by Lil Nas X

Y'know, there's something that just feels so... contradictory about this entire release to me, and I can't put my finger on it but it honestly makes the whole thing MORE appealing somehow. Like in a way, this feels like Lil Nas X is trying to legitimize his place as an "artist" and put out something that can make him respected as more than just the meme guy who made the cowboy song with Billy Ray Cyrus and Nine Inch Nails that they refused to classify as country until a white guy was singing on it. At the same time, somehow the entire vibe of this is incredibly corporate-dressed, perfectly pressed pop rap made specifically to target a young 13-25 crowd that dude probably didn't have that much creative control over, engineered to a tee. You also get the feeling that all of these features (Elton John? Really?) are here just to make a quick buck and maintain relevance through name association, yet none of their performances stick out as particularly bad.

Overall, two listens through and I enjoyed basically every second of this, and it might be irony-poisoning influencing me but shit, although Lil Nas X has more than a few corny bar I would totally go to a party right now where they played this album on loop.

Best Track: Scoop

Day 894: If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power by Halsey

I don't need to write much right now and I shouldn't be because I'm packing at the moment for a move in 2 days. And you should be able to Google this shit on the off chance you've NEVER heard a Halsey song. I'ma say that past stuff from her wasn't really my forte, and this album is a bit... mid to me right now in that I really RESPECT the stylistic variation but the songs I like most are the bangers, especially when shit gets into borderline breakcore territory, while the ballads I'm just eh on. Don't care about lyrics this time, just pure energy, this I WILL revisit before 2022.

Best Track: Girl Is A Gun

Day 895: Sling by Clairo

I know a lot of dudes who are super horny for this singer. I am not. Whether I was or not, I'd like to believe it wouldn't change my opinion on this music, which is boring and doesn't inspire me to write more than one thought about it.

Best Track: Meh

Day 896: All of These Rose Petals by Vatista

I literally found this by trying to see what the breakcore album from 2021 with the highest number of ratings on RYM was. And, of course, it had to be one with nightcore as a subgenre.

Actually, that's not fair, there have been one-off nightcore or nightcore-adjacent things I've enjoyed, like, uh... My friends thought that Goreshit was nightcore so I think that counts?

Either way, this is a brief project, 8 tracks, 22 minutes. The artist self-described this as
Quote:
A personal exploration of unreciprocated crushes, lost lovers, and finding happiness in a life tangential to love
and to that I say, now I see why your love life failed. Because I HATE this. It's same-y, and I hate the vibe that is being repeated the same. Maybe it's my fragile emotional state making me biased against this but I listened to this three times and I could not pick out a single track that I personally enjoyed, and the whole thing just made me angry. It doesn't make me think of actual felt emotions, but rather some kitsch-y, overly bubbly idealization of what someone THINKS love feels like. I guess I can respect some of the drum programming, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it.

I need help...

Best Track: I literally just told you, NONE
