Reuben-Aust:User reviews are MUCH more closely aligned to the Metacritic list than yours. And Metacritic is just an aggregator anyway. You may take issue with the publications they choose to include and the weightings they assign different publications, but they don't actually contribute the reviews that form the rankings.And I have seen zero difference over the past 20+ years in Metacritic; pop albums rarely are amongst the highest rated of the year. Why Well, in my opinion it is because they are rarely worthy, but each to their own.I think you are definitely in the wrong place if you genuinely believe Justice or = are worthy of high placings - the community here does not share your enjoyment of these albums as much as you.
What is Liam Gallagher's musical identity Three albums into his solo career, we're still not fully sure. Yes, the former Oasis singer indulges some good old-fashioned Britpop guitar stylings, but his records have had some strange dance-pop dalliances wherein pop and rock flirt but never fully make the connection. While his albums will always reliably top the charts in his native U.K., none of his records have had the same impact as Oasis or, if we're being honest, even his post-Noel side-project Beady Eye.
Every track has some strange sabotage to it. St. Vincent's take on \"Funkytown\" is lost in its own vocal effects, and Antonoff's band, Bleachers, does a strangely shouty/lo-fi rendition of \"Instant Karma!\" The Grammycore professionalism of H.E.R.'s version of \"Dance to the Music\" features all the bells and whistles but no breathing room for fans to have fun organically. Strangely, rap collective Brockhampton's revisionist version of Kool & The Gang's \"Hollywood Swinging\" surprisingly retains the spirit of the original, but it's one of the few highlights in a candy-coated album full of nothing but empty nostalgic calories. 1e1e36bf2d
