Alright this album is a pretty good follow up from SATURATION. For starters, the production is considerably better in general. There's a lot going on in some tracks. Beyond that, I'd have to say that this album was a little more focused on it's rap aspects which are amazing with BROCKHAMPTON's usual variety of members to choose from. You have the speed of the track "JELLO", the smoothness of the track "TOKYO", and the power of "TEETH". Other than that, it has that amazing Hip-Hop sound that they can achieve with tracks like "JESUS", and "SUMMER". But then comes the small problem of the fact that the album doesn't really have much variety in tone over all of these tracks. The only exception I can think of is the track "SUNNY" which is a slower, chilled, slightly melancholic rap; which was amazing and a little experimental. Other than that, these tracks are pretty good. But a couple of them do suffer from the problem of being criminally short. But the point still stands. 4/5
"The Blue Album"
Alright, alright. This is a great album. It encapsulates the "upstart band", with tracks about hanging in a garage, to tracks about love life and family relationships. And most every track still holds up extremely well for 1994. And this was their debut album too. Like damn. And while there are no definitively "bad" tracks, I feel that the track "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" is notably not as great as the other tracks.
The Green Album
The idea of this album is a little strange. And at first I wasn't actually gonna review it, but I think it's worth it. Basically it's a bunch of classic Muppet songs covered by various bands and artists. I don't do cover albums, but for the sake of going all the way with this, I'll at least comment on it. The songs sound amazing. It's really surprising how well these songs translate to the genres listed in the video. Check it out sometime. The track "Bein' Green" is so thought provoking and powerful. Then you realize it was a song written for Kermit the Frog.
"The Red Album"
It's not that this album is awful. It's just so mediocre that when compared to Weezer's previous albums this pales. Not that that's fair. Like if any of these songs ended up playing, you probably wouldn't mind letting it play. But you probably wouldn't go to this album for jamming out. Maybe like a couple of songs maybe. Other than that, there are actually a couple of not good song. So with bad, to average at best, it's no wonder people are frustrated with this being a colored album.
This album showcases a more stylized side of All Time Low. The albums before stuck to a sound and song themes which I feel make them not ranged in sound. Not to say they were bad, but it means if you aren't in the mood for a specific song on the album, then that goes for the whole album for the most part. I feel like with this album, they didn't have those limitations and only kept to going under a certain thematic sound. Which even then, the songs don't sound too similar to each other. Although that could just be that the genre of album this is doesn't usually have that problem anyway. But it does suffer from the small problem that other albums from All Time Low albums have: Some songs repeat the chorus way too much to pad out the track's length which could potentially kill a track for some. Other than that, it has the best lyrics that the band has put out at the time since "Nothing Personal". But on the flipside, the track "A Love Like War" ft. Vic Fuentes from the band Pierce the Veil, has this amazing lyrical writing. Except that that track makes so sense at all and pretty much is about nothing when you really listen. So yeah 4/5 definetly a Pop Punk album. As a little side note, the longer version of this album adds really good tracks, but that isn't affecting the rating of the original or anything.
I've never heard a Bowie album before. The most I ever heard was naturally the track Space Oddity. Upon... Other variations of the song. ͡° ͡° Anyways, I was super unaware of what this album was going to sound like. When I heard it, I was so pleased with how different and experimental the whole album was. The only thing I knew about this album going into it was that it had themes of dying. This goes beyond just that track titled "Lazarus". The entire album has this strange uneasiness to it. Like there's something creeping up on you at all times. Instruments clash and are oddly timed to make what I like to think as a musical version of "organized chaos". And It's so interesting to see when you think the instrumentals have gone totally haywire, they end up naturally segueing into something more traditional for the vocals to enter on. And when tracks don't use this instrumental style, they have amazing more traditional instruments like the tracks "Dollar Days" and "I Can't Give Everything Away", which utilize Piano, Harmonica, and Saxaphone. And when the album not being strangely dark, the album shows a sense of humor. I find the track "'Tis a Pity She was a Whore" comedic. And at first I felt like it was just me, but I think looking at it ironically might actually be intended. The instrumentals, and the vocals demand to be taken seriously with the instrumentals being as impressive as ever, and the vocals have this elegant tone to their writing, but the lyrics just go and spew one vulgarity after another. Articulatly! It's so enjoyable. Another thing I feel is that the album isn't too long. I feel it stops pretty nicely and doesn't really overstay its welcome. A "light ͡° ͜ ͡°nine" for this one.

Now when you hear the sound of the album for the first time, you might think it's a pretty cool sound. And well it is. Maybe for a couple tracks. But this sound of scream vocals in front of a quiet lower octave normal vocal gets pretty annoying after a while. Mostly because it's the majority of the album. It really made me enjoy the tracks that didn't mainly include these vocals like the tracks "Sleep" and "Speaking with a Ghost". And in the case of "Speaking with a Ghost" the scream vocals and soft background vocals are swapped around so that the scream vocals are more quiet and the focus is on the soft vocals. It's an amazing swap and probably the sweetest track of the album. But other than that, it's not hard to find two tracks that sound very alike. It was another case of me having to check me phone to even know if I was still listening to the same track or not. By the way, The first few seconds of the first and final tracks "Roam the Room" and "Drawn Out" sound comedicaly alike. So beyond sound, there is another small problem. Over half the tracks on the album don't even reach the three minute mark. And of the like four that do, like two of them barley pass three. Anyone who actually is enjoying a track won't be doing so for long. 5/10 it's pretty eh.

This album is pretty great, in all honesty. But I have to say, I find the 1st quarter of the album extremely lacking compared to everything after it. I'd say the album starts to pick up around the track "2PAC". Possibly even in the track before it. Then it's all uphill from there. For me, it just kept getting better and better. Deeper and deeper. I was suprised it was the same album I had started listening to from the beginning. Maybe this is a bit of a given, considering BROCKHAMPTON is a bit of a large group, but when it comes to sound, There is great variety overall. But I also feel that this contributes to the first quarter of the album not being quite as great as the rest, but nothing was truly bad when it came to instrumentals. Nothing I could really see a problem with at least. Other than that, I don't have much else to say about it. It was a delightful surprise, and maybe I'll do SATURATION II someday.
