Goooooood bunch for the most part. Also yeah I took what people voted for in my story into account. So now we have BONUS DISCOGRAPHIES. Basically just discographies that were either very short, I don’t find I need to say all that much, or didn’t interest me hugely. Doesn’t mean they’re bad though. Just have less to say sometimes. Anyway let’s get on.
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago is one of my favourite albums. I absolutely adore it and find it equally beautiful and heartbreaking. I didn’t really expect Bon Iver to break past that and keep doing better and better, but I expected different for sure. The path he went down was so odd. Seemed like he opted more for sad folktronica that (personally) didn’t do a great job at showcasing his emotions well. Because he has a lot to say lyrically but with 22, A Million and his latest i,i, it doesn’t feel well communicated. That’s just me anyway. I’ll still always love that album and maybe the others will grow on me overtime, but overall I was more disappointed to be honest.
JPEGMAFIA - I think there’s Death Grips’ influence there but it doesn’t take over very much. Peggy is an odd one but I think there’s more or less a conventional style to his rapping, even with the whacky musical background going on. Personally I think he’d grow better with more vocal experimentation and differentiation when rapping. That being said, I really enjoyed his discography for the most part. Veteran alone is actually terrific. That’s him operating at his best in my opinion. Black Ben Carson was a good start as well. His latest I’m a bit iffy about. No one song stands out, it’s more just the experience of the album as a whole that was noteworthy. He’s an odd one but yeah, I like what he’s doing and I look forward to seeing how his music develops in the future.
Denzel Curry - I think trap is a genre that bothers me generally. It’s easily one of my least favourite genres next to country. But like country, it can be done well. Denzel does it well. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
