Day 860: Survivor's Guilt: The Mixtape by KennyHoopla & Travis Barker (Album Choice: T-Force)

T-Force IDK how many pages if any you've read of this thread (should be zero) but if you had you could've probably guessed I wouldn't have liked this.

Also I'm not shocked that Travis Barker was involved in Blink-182, but he was part of The Aquabats?!

Best Track: It's 20 minutes, you can figure that out yourself

Day 861: Prosthetic Boombox by Cola Boyy

I decided to take a high stakes risk and let Spotify recommend me something, and I got extra excited when I saw The Avalanches contributed, and this still sucked.

Day 862: Dark In Here by The Mountain Goats

Y'all know that I have a deep personal affection for this band. The Sunset Tree I blasted a ton during senior year of high school because I was going through some personal legal bullshit, even though that album is about an abusive stepfather and not... whatever I was going through. And recently I've been playing Tallahassee WAY too often because of... obvious reasons that I shouldn't state.

This album is just okay though. It's pleasant, the lyrics are what I'd expect of this band but there just isn't that passion, that desperation that is why I love the lo-fi years of this band so much, or the emotional relatability of the two albums I just listed before. This is just fine, pretty background music with poetry above it.

Meh.

Best Track: Lizard Suit for its chaotic free jazz ending

Day 864: Space and Time by Justine Skye

This artist was funnily enough one of the very first concerts I ever went to, because of something called "High School Nation Tour" that brought (at the time) a bunch of no-names to high schools across the nation... If the name of the program didn't make that obvious. Drake Bell performed at a bunch of those tours and at the time I was bummed that he didn't decide to come to my school but considering recent events... Yeahhhhhh haha I'm glad I didn't a picture with that dude.

Anyways, the last thing I heard about this artist before finding out she released something this year is that she accused Sheck Wes of a bunch of abusive behavior, which is extremely easy to believe, and then nothing, and then Spotify randomly recommended this to me. Aaaand, it's okay. I remember when she performed I didn't like any of the people performing but she was definitely the best by far, and considering she was like 18 at the time (just a little bit more than 2 years older than me WOW) my memory says that she did a good job. This album is basically just pretty average pop R&B stuff all the way through, it's pleasant to listen to, no real clunkers, no real bangers. I've actively listened to this album 3 times now and each time has felt like passive listening, if that makes sense.

I think I'm finally escaping the biggest source of my depression guys, check back here for updates!

Day 865: Roses by The Paper Kites (Album Choice: -Poison)

It's better than the last album I reviewed, and I found myself hypnotized by the depressingly dreamy aura they're clearly trying to go for at several points, but there were also several points where I was just kinda bored. Still, I'd call this pretty decent stuff, if not super memorable to me.

I really feel bad for anyone expecting a quality analysis out of me.

Day 866: .​.​.​And Again Into The Light by Panopticon

I used to listen to this band and Isis and Neurosis a bunch in high school but never reviewed any of their albums bc... IDK I forgot to. And I haven't really listened to any of them in years. Are they all similar? I think I remember them being similar.

Anyways, I usually do not trust RYM Metal recs but I actually really enjoyed this, all 71 minutes of it. I guess my predisposition to sludgy stuff outweighed my disdain for post-rock bloat. And it helped me focus on my job today.

Thank god it's Friday.

Day 868: Happier Than Ever by Billie Eilish

Y'know I've already been weirded out for a long while that there are musicians reaching their glory days that are younger than me, but now we've reached the point that they're younger than my little BROTHER?!

Well, actually, considering this is her second album, this isn't a new phenomenon. Pretty sure she's not even the first artist to be born post-mid 2001 to gain a huge following amongst whatever music crowd, from the radio pop listeners to the fake RateYourMusic hipsters to the true "I primarily listen to traditional Kecak chants from Indonesia or field recordings of northern Greenland" hipsters. When she first came on the scene, I thought her music was garbage, but I've gotta be honest, the white club-loving girl in me thinks that Bad Guy is a total bop. And she was great when she featured on that Denzel Curry song... HOLY SHIT THAT WAS 2018?! Why am I getting old so fast? Why is coronavirus ruining my chance at living in the moment? Why did I get myself stuck in a toxic relationship for nearly a year? Why am I not applying any of the skills I learned in grad school at my current underpaying job?

Actually, that last sentence was a lie, I didn't learn shit from grad school. Okay so anyways, I come in here acknowledging my previous bias, but also acknowledging that she's proven she can make a good bop for the dance floor, and she truly does have a pleasant singing voice when she's featuring on other people's tracks. This album? It's a total mixed bag and way too long. All the attempts at making similar club-friendly tracks here? For the most part, they fucking suck. THEY FUCKING SUCK. When things are quiet and more emotionally honest, it's a pleasant listen, though I don't think there was a single moment during this album I found to be truly amazing. The production is slick, but mostly unmemorable. I can imagine superfans will think this is the greatest album ever made, but me? I find it hard to have much of a strong opinion at all. Once again, like I've said in a million other reviews, this shit is okay, even good most of the time, but practically never great. And some of those attempts at making bangers really do suck out the ass.

Anyways, I should hit the gym. And fix my insurance so I can get therapy. And start meditating.

Day 869: Ego Death by Aleph (Album Choice: housekeeper)

I've listened to this thing like 5 times and I enjoy it but I just don't have the emotional energy at the moment to write anything worthwhile. It's not like I write worthwhile stuff usually but at this moment in particular I'm just really, really not feeling it other than wanting to log my opinion. Sorry if you wanted more, I hate US Healthcare.

Day 870: Attic Tapes by Brainiac

I've been a super-fan of these guys for so long that I can't truly give this an objective review. This is a collection of demos, some of which are seeing their first official release after floating around the internet for decades, but most of which have never been on the internet in the first place as far as I can tell. And they sound like demos. To someone deep into this band, this is a FASCINATING document, but if you're not into this band, this is absolutely not the place to start, and objectively it's really not that good.

No need to choose a best track here.

Day 872: Dinner Get Ready by Lingua Ignota

I saw the melon gave it a 10. I see exactly why he gave it a 10. I don't have his taste. Oddly enough, this is way less abrasive and more church-y than the 2019 album, and I'd usually prefer noise but in this case, I think this is definitely the better album.

Day 873: Welcome to the Madhouse by Tones and I

The last album I reviewed got a 10/10 from baldie so I had to check what he gave a 0/10. This is nowhere near as terrible as that Corey Feldman album nor is it as amazingly funny as Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven. A 0/10 is pushing it. It's bad and annoying but not a spectacle in how bad it is.
