Implying? It's explicitly clear that it wasn't. Seriously, the only legitimate excuse for considering this as your AOTY is if it was actually the only album you even listened to. Even Ultraviolence is better, and Lana Del Rey is bloody terrible.
>tfw he lets Thundercat shit on almost every track
getting real tired of those two being attached at the hip when it comes to flylo's albums
at least Kendrick/Dre had some sense to ration his frantic bass into digestible and well composed areas
Took my trip off just to say that just because something's better than You're Dead doesn't make it good xox :*
They're both shit. Ultraviolence is at least vaguely listenable.
Nah, it was a somewhat letdown on first listen (mainly the Snoop collab), but it's still one of the best, if not the best 2014 releases.
>Even Ultraviolence is better
Condolences for not having ears
Seriously, LDR's songs all pretty much sound the same, and also sound pretty much the same as, say, BANKS's stuff. FlyLo is unique at the bare minimum, and you gotta give him credit for that. Not saying there aren't other artists who blend IDM, jazz, and hip-hop, but you know when it's FlyLo despite the fact that he doesn't even sing.
the almighty has spoken
Unique as it may be, it is generally completely unlistenable. The mix is impenetrable and chaotic, and even upon rooting through its cluttered mass, there's not much to find that's interesting or insightful or even enjoyable.
As boring as Ultraviolence is, it at least doesn't try to hide its boringness under layers upon layers of chaos. What you see is what you get, and you can stop listening after maybe the third song of its droning laziness. With You're Dead!, the music is sufficiently complicated that there's the possibility that you might not "get it" or there's something you're missing that will unveil itself with future listens. Really, all you get is a sense that you wasted ~3 hours of your life on something you shouldn't have spent more than 10 minutes on.
I respectfully disagree. It's a good second or third for me though. Pic related stole it at the last minute.
