Y’all know this is just my opinion, right?
Seriously think I'm the only person to not like this album
I wasn't a huge fan of snow globes the first time I heard it and I usually replay that song the least. But the second time I heard it the drums made perfect sense to me. First you hear these loud echoes like thunder in the distance and then it sounds like a blizzard is slowly consuming you and just building and building. I think the drums are genius because while it's not a perfect song it creates the perfect atmosphere.
I must confess… snow globes is my favourite…
Here one year later after watching their Live at Bush Hall video, and I can say with confidence that this band is only just getting started. What an incredible performance with all new music. I can't wait for a physical release.
I actually think the Snow Globes insane drum line is the highlight of the record
be for fucking real anthony this is a 10
Would've been a 10 if it was called God From Up There Did 🤷♂
This album changed me. After hearing it, I became a different person.
Snow globes was my favorite Issac vocal performance tho 🙂
Man I wish I could listen to this album for the first time again. Fantastic
"Very i have give it a 9"
This album is just mature cap'n jazz
This album is perfect. It grew on me more and more. 10/10 The British TPAB
Alright I've made up my mind… AOTY
I listened to this album for the first time today and was entranced. I however wasn't blown away or anything. I probably need a second listen I think I was looking for a narrative or theme too much rather than just taking whats there. We'll see
Anthony, If it was called the place where he inserted the bladee you would’ve given it a 10.
prefered for the first time but its good
i listened to this album like 4 times over about a week and didnt get bored
i find myself humming GWH, concorde, bread song, CSM, so often even after like 2 months of not listening to the full thing
Anthony knew what he was doing Having IGOR in the back.
Came back after 8 months to say this album is a perfect 10. It’s quickly become top 5 albums of all time for me.
Hats off to Black Midi and BCNR for keeping rock fresh and exciting.
He wasn't kidding about Good Will Hunting getting stuck in your head. I can still hear Isaac screaming "EVERYONE WILL SAY IT WAS COOOOOOOOOOL"
