Awesome Cover, Not So Awesome Album
on 6 November 2015
Their least accomplished album in any sense. I love the YYY's but this album isn't coherent in any sense (other YYY albums have seamlessly mixed different sounds and styles within the same album whilst still being cohesive) and too many of the tracks feel like filler because they didn't have enough awesome songs to fill an album or something. There are a few songs I can separate and enjoy with a certain mood in mind and then a couple of slower songs I can enjoy separately but an equal number I really don't care for in any circumstances. It just feels too disjointed and blase.
The only point the album really came alive for me was when I listened to an alternate version with an acoustic cut of several tracks - these tracks alongside the slower of the originals made a really nice album for me. It isn't awful by any standards but was expecting and hoping for more.
