How does /mu/ feel about a basic pop album receiving better critic reception than a genius work of art based on death? xDDDD
You just answered your own question. Currents is a pop album and a wider audience can appreciate it than Blackstar which is way less accsessible. Also who literally gives le shit about what some webpage says about albums if you enjoy them unless you need to have your taste validated to seem cool on the internet.
I love both albums and artists btw
Also even though Blackstar was a great album and a greater concept it had 2 previously released songs redone and so it had less new content than Currents. The reason is obvious and it doesn't hurt the album as a whole but I could see people rating it lower because of that.
>Currents is a pop album and a wider audience can appreciate it
If that was the case, Justin Beiber, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and other massive pop stars would have 100s from all critics.
But it's not a basic pop record though, it has great songwriting, better production and has lots of replay value. It took TI to a fresh new direction and was easily one of the most enjoyable albums of last year.
Lol, if 2016 has Blackstar as it's album of the year, music has gone to shit. Evidence is in the link below.
>20 albums received a higher reception than Blackstar
>implying 20 more albums won't top an album that used death as a desperate excuse to generate sales
I completely agree with you. It was my album of the year desu senpai after TPAB.
>A site that aggregates all highly-visited publications' thoughts of albums is bad.
>hurr durr its not Pitchfork or Fandango
