Favourite Song on Album:


Listen to This Album When You’re:

Driving with the top down on a hot day.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Yeah, nothing special, but it does make me think that they musicians are just normal people.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Absolutely!

Final Thoughts:

Put On A Light was the first song I heard from these guys and I’m stoked to hear what else they can make. This album is just delightful! Is it original or show-stopping? You know, probably not. But it’s really enjoyable and dammit, I like it! It’s also really chill, I found it really easy to just turn my brain off and let this album do its thing, which is a nice change of pace with some of the other albums I’ve been listening to (Aesop Rock comes to mind). Generationals aren’t anything new, but they’ve perfected their craft and are a great listen for a nice day!

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Wanting to be impressed by a band that was influential and before its time.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Yeah, it looks like a fail screen. Not doing a lot for me.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah, I really would love to have this on vinyl.

Final Thoughts:

I just found out that I love Talking Heads, it’s really fun to discover oldies that really cater to you. Talking Heads are funky and weird and funny. I love their sound and this album has some solid tunes on it.
