'amo' shows BMTH in a fresh new light that they needed. The album is full of diverse music, well-written lyrics and catchy hooks that will have you singing for weeks.
Deerhunter’s 'Why Hasn’t Everything Disappeared Already?' is another unique addition to their discography. Each song brings something new to the table with lyrics that are interesting to dissect.
Earl Sweatshirt has created an original tragedy with 'Some Rap Songs.' The instrumentals establish tones that are complemented perfectly by the lyrics and samples. His performances and flows across the album make each song stand out on its own where not one song sounds the same on the record. Even though the record is 25 minutes, it feels full, making it an accomplishment in modern hip-hop.
‘Elastic Days’ is a moody, soft, and introspective album. The instrumentation helps put the listener into the world that the lyrics paint. The guitar solos are crisp and effective in bringing out the emotion of the lyrics. The contributors to the record add enough extra layers to certain songs to help expand the album’s sound. Near the end of the album, the music tires out and kept me wanting something different in sound.
‘Post-Apocalypto’ is a silly but hilarious album. The instrumentals have an excellent flow and include ferocious vocal performance from Black, Gass, and Grohl, but the end of the album falls flat with a lack of context and music. However, it is still a Tenacious D album and holds true to their rock/metal sound and outrageous lyrics creating a very funny, and enjoyable experience.
