Shame - Songs of Praise

Postby BleuPanda » Fri Jan 12, 2018 1:39 pm

There was some discussion earlier about how critics keep picking albums by artists they already love in their EOY lists...but I feel that's just the general trend of things wherever. So I figured, why not hightlight a debut album currently sitting at a 90 on Metacritic from some band I've never heard of until now? It feels like we only ever get album specific threads whenever it's a returning favorite, so maybe starting these specific discussions is the remedy?

Loving the album. Second my nomination for One Rizla from before it came out on the AMF chart 18.01.

Actually it appears I was already seconding Smithers Jones.

Really enjoyable album. One Rizla is definitely the highlight, but The Lick and Friction are great as well. Solid debut 8/10.

Here came Pitchfork ruining their glowing 89 score and spoiling it for them. Not a terrible review but their second worst review out of the 14. What a shame ;) It might go at least up one number to 88 cause All Music who isn’t listed yet, gave them a 4 star review.

Great idea Bleu. Looking forward to discovering some interesting, slighty under the radar, releases this year. Will give 'Songs of Praise' a spin.
