Boris - New Album


This is not a typical album from our Japanese Drone Metal friends, or a typical album you would expect from any band affiliated with metal whatsoever. This album is basically crazy psychedelic J-Pop. I did not see this coming, and when I heard about it, I honestly wasn't sure I would like it. And speaking honestly, of the four (!!!) albums Boris released this year, this is my least favorite (spoilers for future entries oh no.) That said this album actually blew me away with it's awesomeness when I first heard it.

Since then, I've grown to like other albums a bit more and this one a bit less, but this album still holds up quite well enough to make it onto this list. I enjoy it a whole lot. It's definitely not for everyone because... well it's a fucking weird album just from the description. But it's better than the sum of it's parts. It sounds like a Boris album, despite sounding almost nothing like Boris. And that is part of the charm that makes it so good.

Recommended song:
"Hope"
