I’m writing this on April 6th 2014. I’ve listened to some records that have come out in 2014, let’s talk about them.
BECK - MORNING PHASES
Well, the consensus from other reviews seems to be, “Morning Phases = MEH”. And well… yeah. That’s my opinion too. If anything, I liked this album a little bit because it made me remember how good Sea Change was and made me go back and relive the melancholic joy that is the sounds of that record. - 6.5/10
GNARWOLVES - CHRONICLES OF GNARNIA
This next one is less an album and is a collection of EPs which isn’t a bad thing if it’s your first glimpse of Gnarwolves. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s kind of sad, it’s great. There’s some touching lyrics here though there’s nothing else here to really challenge you, but the bands sheer energy and emotionalism really shine through. Get high, go for a walk, listen to this album. - 8/10
