    I liked their previous albums but outside of a few tracks this one did nothing for me. I didn't hate it but it gets a great big "meh".

    only real new thing i've listened to lately.
    i got ty and cloud from the [] but haven't listened yet. i'm sure i'll enjoy them as i always do.


    is it even worth me trying this new xx album?
    same for brian eno
    The Brian Eno thing is great to have on while doing something mindless.

    Also, I'm excited to check out that Code Orange album. I was hoping I'd be able to make it to that show this week, but we ended up having shit to do.
    On a fast track to half sane.

    You're right. Someone COULD murder Thissy, drive it to Chicago, and throw his flaccid corpse over the gates of Riot Fest. In that scenario you are correct, Thissy could be seen dead at Riot Fest.

    Still too early in the year, I haven't given most stuff enough listens, but Grandaddy is an easy #1 for me right now.

    Updated to include Migos. A good chunk of that album doesn't do a whole lot for me, but some tracks are a bunch of fire emojis.

    I literally cannot comprehend your hatred of I See You. It's almost perfect.
