Alright. It’s a pretty decent to okay album. This record has quite a few really great songs, but that’s the thing. It doesn’t feel much like a cohesive record. It’s got more of a mixtape vibe to it. Just feels like a bunch of good songs slapped together in random order. I think a big part of this is the fact that they just slabbed half of the EP onto this thing and called it a day, it really fucks with the flow of the record and takes me out of it quite a bit. Also, there’s not a whole lot of variety here. A bunch of these songs sound the exact fucking same, and that bums me out given how diverse their last record was.
Now that all being said, there’s some awesome songs on this record. I loved Dead Weight as a single (even though others didn’t, thats fine). Stay Gold is pretty generic indie pop, but it’s so catchy and beautiful that I don’t mind it. Hallucinations has that massive hook that takes the whole song to a different level. Loveless is definitely the best song here, love the raw emotion in this one. January Rain is definitely the last track on the record that I really loved, has big AWKOH feels.
Very okay record, but I’m glad it gave us some great songs.
