Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Catastrophe, Season Three:
This is Season Three in name only, and truly feels like a continuation and conclusion of the events from Season Two. That said, I enjoyed its progression, and it even managed to raise my opinion of Season Two (which I felt ended abruptly and without much development). I enjoy how the main characters are flawed and sometimes mean-spirited, but they maintain a good chemistry and rarely ever cross the line into easy hateful humor.

Final Grade: B

Lovetap! by Smallpools:
This is an upbeat collection of indie rock that reminds me a little of the Hoosiers. It has a solid collection of beats and catchy melodies. Dreaming is a good, representative track.

Final Grade: B+

Connect the Dots by Misterwives:
The sophomore album from Misterwives is pretty solid, although I don't yet know if I like it as much as the first. They play around a lot more with tempos on this album, which reduces the efficacy of any one song as a workout beat.

Final Grade: B+

Cardboard Castles by Watsky:
Watsky got his start in slam poetry, and his rap shows off a polished, rapid-fire diction. His arrangements are nicely varied and keep the album interesting on successive listens when the lyrics grow less clever. Moral of the Story is a good, representative track (lyrics not safe for work). The only flaw are the interjections of random conversations with his son between tracks -- this device is never as interesting for a listener as it is for the parent.

Final Grade: B+
