For all 31 days in December, I posted a video album review every day on my social media accounts. Specifically, albums that came out in 2016. And also these reviews were extremely low effort ones done in 30 seconds or less. However, despite covering a wide array of albums in my month of reviewing, there’s a quite a few I missed.

However, since I don’t quite have the time to edit and upload a bajillion album reviews, here’s a couple of low effort album reviews in text form.



Kero Kero Bonito – Bonito Generation

Somehow in 2016, the most compelling album about finding happiness is a combination of Japanese pop and UK electro that has songs about trampolines, hearing a track on the radio and not knowing what it is, and being really good at things.


Exploded View – Exploded View

I am absolutely frightened by this album at times….. but I like it.


Chance the Rapper – Coloring Book

This album will probably blow your Christian friend’s minds. Your atheist friends might not be as impressed. Source: me, as I wasn’t impressed with the album.


Sturgill Simpson – A Sailor’s Guide To Earth

Here it is: the token country album that your friend’s who hate country will probably like. Source: me, as I don’t really enjoy country but really enjoy this album.


Childish Gambino – “Awaken, My Love!”

Up until this album, there is only one Childish Gambino project I truly enjoyed front to back, Because the Internet. It is still the only Childish Gambino project I enjoy front to back.
