Damn that RZA track is pretty good. Whole definitely prefer a whole album of that sort of material over folksy electronic ballads.

This dude is the new Patrick Wolf, in the worst way. I can appreciate that he may be good at what he does and that he has a big fanbase, but this is pretty much the most dire album I've heard in a long time. It's just his voice--I know he employed on the last album, but I don't remember this much bleating. He comes from the Katy Perry school of limited vocal range tbh, although she sounds more like a goat and less like a sheep (he sounds like a sheep going through puberty with a bad headcold). Plus not that many memorable melodies outside of the first track and "Retrograde." Anyhow. I also can't stand the cover. Better name for the album would be 'Music for Pretentious Homosexuals'
And I feel like this year is really about, just the year of realizing stuff.

yeah I just absolutely cannot listen to more than two of his tracks in a 24 hour period before wanting to inject myself with adrenaline and go running for a few hours

shit all just blends together

rza track on this is genuinely awesome, I like retrograde, digital lion and Dlm because it's short

The more I wrote about this album, the angrier I got.

really enjoying this album

it's funny, he got to the place I was hoping the xx would go with their second album, discreet mini-rhythms spiderwebbing all over

Stuntman: Hipinion for me is like a choose-your-own adventure where every topic is a direct path to the depressed thread.

The last scene reminds me of Bergman's The Seventh Seal.

this got tranched but it sounds like it was the album everyone wanted his debut to be except w/ less imaginative percussion (which is a shame)

i like it tho, 2nd half especially.

feel like he's overdue for a bjork-style collaboration with Robert Wyatt, pretty sure he's mentioned him as one of his biggest influences

hey fellas, i just posted the airhead lp in the members' leak thread. he's a longtime collaborator of Jamz Blake for those who are unaware, and he also spins regularly at blake's 1-800-dinosaur club night.
