Great review, one of my favorite albums in a long while.

More thoughts on the latest AP.net podcast for anyone that hasn't heard it.

Thanks!

Now time to listen to your podcast about it. I always refrain from reading reviews - or in this case, listening to the podcast - of albums I'm planning to review so that I don't accidentally steal any ideas haha.
We definitely talk about some of the same things you wrote about ... articulation, Matty's phrasing on the plosives, etc.

Hm cold would make much more sense to me...

Just looked around - I see mixed lyrics of "cool" and "cold." Hm
Official lyrics are in the gen thread. Scanned from te disc.

Yeah, with "cool" instead of "cold" it changes from my favorite line of the song to one of my least favorites lines of the album. So hard to unhear though, once you know what the artist's intent was...



This is bizarre to me. If anything, the first half is WAY more varied (do you honestly think "The 1975", "The City", "MONEY", "Chocolate", "Sex", and "Talk" all sound the same?!) than the second half, which has many songs with the same vibe/groove ("Settle Down", "Girls", "She Way Out", the second half of "Menswear", "Pressure"). I agree that I would've enjoyed more variety overall, but with the EPs to fill that void, I'm not too worried about it, because the songwriting and production are outstanding.
Good points, agree.

this shit is super average.
We know your thoughts. You've spammed the Internet with them. No one cares.
