A soulful look into the world Chance sees so clearly, deserves the praise it gets

Best track: Summer Friends, Blessings Reprise, Juke Jam, Same Drugs, All Night, All We Got

Worst track: I might be the only one not a huge fan of No Problem, but it isn’t a bad song by any means (***Editor’s note: Gunny is way off on this take, lol jk but srsly – alex***)

Lemonade by Beyoncé: trash

Get outta here Bey with your empowered bull spit and BeyHive. (***Editor’s note: Almost fired Ian after the “No Problem” take, but he won back his job with this***)

Best Track: Forward only because Beyoncé doesn’t sing a single word and my man James Blake KILLS it, and that song with the Kendrick verse was dope

*SORRY, no YouTube link cuz Bey stinks

i like when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it by The 1975:1975.png

I’m shocked I loved it so much, could never fully get into them with their last album, but this is a really good record and completely turned me on to them. It’s poppy and catchy while being vulnerable and heartfelt, everything you want in a good album.  I get to see them at Lollapalooza as well, nbd but kbd, one of my fav albums in awhile.
 
Best Tracks: If i Believe You, UGH!, This Must Be My Dream, Nana, She Lays Down, The Ballad of Me and My Brain
Listen to “If I Believe You” here
Worst Tracks: none really, but if i had to pick it would be The 1975, the first track, only because its the same name as the first track on their last album
 Skin by Flume: skin review.jpg

Pretty good club music, not your typical ‘Chainsmokers’ dance music. The features work really well throughout, excited to see him at Lollapalooza tho
Best tracks: Never Gonna Be Like You, Say It, Smoke & Retribution, Tiny Cities
Worst tracks: Wall F**k
