Also Gorillaz Humanz was total ass. But they've got a new one I havent heard yet so maybe that will redeem them.
I thought Ye was a nice return to form in that it's mostly gimmick free. just kanye rappin over some beats. it's certainly very slight, and sounds like he made it in a week (which he probably did) but it's also not cringe-worthy, gaudy as hell, and overlong like Life Of Pablo. also "Kids See Ghosts" was better and only came out a week later (it also doesn't sound like they made it in a week). Make those side 1 and 2 and call it a full album if ya want.
I'm pretty much with you on Oczy Mlody. I love the lips, but they need to shake things up again. OM feels like Embryonic on autopilot. The band's general sound is overall still good but they just feel kinda stagnant right now. They've had a longer run of fantastic albums than most bands could ever dream of having though so if they finally have started to fall off for good I can't really get too upset.
