  1. I'm basically on the same page as @TheHunteraciaStrain
  2. Top 10 EZ, those track names are looking good too. Album art is simpler than I expected but I do like it a lot.
  3. This is quite good. I liked the last album a lot so I'm not afraid of their poppy direction. And dat sax tho
  4. Brain Pain is the better track imo, but it still isn't amazing. Lyrics are good but the vocal melodies aren't good enough to compliment them, and the instrumentals are a bit lack luster despite the heaviness. Bridge is good too. Talking Myself in Circles just kinda comes and goes without much of an impact but it's not bad I suppose.
  5. This is a very fun and entertaining album imo. Songs like Concrete and I Disagree are gimmicky like people are saying, true, but I'm enjoying myself while listening to them, which is fine imo. But then there are other ethereal tracks like Sit/Stay, Sick of the Sun, and Don't Go Outside, which, like @desk pointed out, have beautiful outros that really add to the songs and the album overall. Add Anything Like Me to the list of dope outros too. It also shows the amount of thought put into the songs which is always a bonus. Fill the Crown and Nothing I Need are probably low points; they aren't awful but they just don't do much for me. I wasn't expecting a perfect album though, nor an album this good, however. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the trip of a track in Bite Your Teeth which is a little messy but is a great time with parts both visceral and perfectly atmospheric. The album is a bit all over the place, but I think there are multiple cool elements that add to the listening experience, and has made this a sleeper hit for me, as well as a welcome strong start to 2020. I can't give this less than a 7. Favorites: Concrete, I Disagree, BLOODMONEY, Sit/Stay, Bite Your Teeth, Sick of the Sun, Don't Go Outside. Least Favorites: Fill the Crown & Nothing I Need
  6. Tfw this is a heavy Citizen song I like it a lot, and I know i especially will within the context of the album as a whole.
  7. It's good but the vast majority of the last album is better
  8. It's pretty decent sonically but the structure is so overly generic that I can't get interested.
  9. Don't forget about me, super late to this post. 1. Issues - Beautiful Oblivion 2. Northlane - Alien 3. Thornhill - The Dark Pool 4. Emarosa - Peach Club 5. Microwave - Death is a Warm Blanket 6. Chon - Chon 7. PUP - Morbid Stuff 8. Secret Band - LP2 9. The Devil Wears Prada - The Act 10. Turnover - Altogether Top 25 chart:
  10. I ended up loving the Turnover album quite a bit. Sleep Token and Royal Coda were pretty good too.
  11. I LOVED all 3 Exposition I songs despite the saturation of Donovan's voice in the scene, so I was hyped for this. This is very good as well. First song is a decent change of pace for the project overall, we already know Gemini was fire, Hoxton has some great vocal melodies, and Sonya is decent too.
