Benji is one of my favorite albums. I guess that's why I was so disappointed with Universal Themes.

My bottom five are all Bandcamp releases, so I don't know if you'll know them.

5. Diario by Cassio Figuerido. Kinda boring drone music. Then again, I'm not much of a drone guy.
4. Bits by Kermodei. Boring Ambient, and I've heard a lot of ambient, and I like quite a bit. But this put in no effort and was really just bundling long noises together.
3. Battle Galactica by BG. I have no prejudice towards trap, but I've heard better hip hop, and this album was all hip and no hop. What I mean is, it tried to hard to be an album and it didn't have anything to back it.
2. THe Life and Death of Longface. I listened to it because it was grungegaze. However, both grunge and shogaze are good, and it takes a boring group to screw them up.
1. Konia by Borejko. I'm a friend of him, and I believe friends should give people honest opinions instead of pretending all of their albums are good. Borejko (formerly known as Harkan) makes a LOT of albums. He has more than 80. He's bound to have a bad album at some point, and his experimentation with ambient, industrial, electronic, drone, etc. can be for better or worse. This album was pretty bad. The tracks are too legthy, and they have less spunk than most of Borejko's discography. And I've given some of his albums great reviews.

Anyway, that's my bottom five. Ratings ranging from three stars to one star. Not super horrible.

Nobody's particularly denying you your opinion --- I don't think they're that great either --- but have the courage of your convictions. Stand up beside what you say and don't try to weasel out of it by pretending that wasn't what you meant.
I think by "last two albums" he meant the last two on the list. TPG has only done something like 3d albums total, and the last 2 were like 50 years ago

The Princes ‎– Stars Prog, Cross over Prog ( haven't heard of that before) The lyrics and singing comes off as a poor attempt at Queen, their music is just OK to so-so run-of-the-mill modern Prog. The album cover cracks me up.
