1. What were your VERY FIRST impressions on listening to the album, say from the first five minutes in (first time)?
The album opens up on a pretty groovy note, for better or worse. There are some organ techniques that are pretty outdated imo but he does do a lot of cools stuff on that machine. Overall I found it to be likeable, albeit cheesy at some points.

2. Did your first impressions change, i.e., did the album get better or worse as you listened to it (first time)?
Was getting a little irritated by the style towards the end.
3. Which was stronger in your opinion, the opening tracks (first 2-3 songs), or the ending tracks (last 2-3 songs)?
The album opened on a far better note than it ended. Though that could just be because I was getting tired of the album by the time I heard the end. I liked the groovy fusion-esque parts of Soul City.
4. On repeated listens (if you did so), did you find you liked the album more, or less? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
I've just listened to it once, I thought there were some good tracks on there, but I don't think I'll be listening to it again, tbh.
5. What is your favorite track from the album, if you have one?
The Elephant Never Forgets was good because it was Turkish March but my overall favourite was the opener.
6. What is your least favorite track from the album, if you have one?
Flight of the Bumblebee because it was cheesy at the end.
8. How would you describe the variety of tracks available on this album? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
The album jumps to some very Floyd-esque moments in the middle, some parts almost sound like jazz fusion which is pretty cool. Some sounded very video game like, almost to a comedic extent.
9. What is the overall mood on this album?
Playful and laid back.
10. Is this an album you would listen to again all the way through (for personal, recreational use, outside of listening to it for this club), or are there just a few songs that you would listen to?
Most likely not, it's not really my thing tbh.
11. How well do you already know the band/artist?
Never listened to him before, but I'd heard the name.
13. Do you see any way the album could have been improved?
A little less cheese on my electronics please. The synth tone or whatever could have used some work at points.
14. Would you recommend this album to others?
I think some of my friends would like this because they played video games, but I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone but them.

15. Are you interested in listening to more albums by this band?
I'd like to hear this guy on modern equipment.
16. What sub-genre, if any, would you assign this music to?
Synthy videogame music.

My Rating:

6/10


. Any other thoughts you had about this album you would like to share?

It's good for what it is, some tracks are much better than others. A lot of them fall into cheeseville.

Woah I didn't know I was holding up the process.

Keys N Krates Blackout is my choice then.

1. What were your VERY FIRST impressions on listening to the album, say from the first five minutes in (first time)?
Not really what I was expecting in the electronica club. I was curious but not overexcited.
2. Did your first impressions change, i.e., did the album get better or worse as you listened to it (first time)?
It grew on me. I think "Flight of the Bumblebee" was where where I started to get more into it.
3. Which was stronger in your opinion, the opening tracks (first 2-3 songs), or the ending tracks (last 2-3 songs)?
Not sure. I think I actually liked the middle the best.
4. On repeated listens (if you did so), did you find you liked the album more, or less? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
I've only listened once. I could see myself getting more into it if I listened in the right mood(g) at some point.
5. What is your favorite track from the album, if you have one?
"Gossippo Perpetuo" by a long shot. Very fun song.
6. What is your least favorite track from the album, if you have one?
Not sure.
8. How would you describe the variety of tracks available on this album? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
Decent variety I guess. I actually wish it had more of a coherent mood because it sounds more like a collection of songs than an album.
9. What is the overall mood on this album?
Goofy.
10. Is this an album you would listen to again all the way through (for personal, recreational use, outside of listening to it for this club), or are there just a few songs that you would listen to?
Sure. I think I need to be in a different mood for this than I was in when I listened to it.
11. How well do you already know the band/artist?
Heard of him but never heard his music.
13. Do you see any way the album could have been improved?
More quirky electronics, less conventional music.
14. Would you recommend this album to others?
Yes.
15. Are you interested in listening to more albums by this band?
Sure.
16. What sub-genre, if any, would you assign this music to?
Vintage electronica? I'd call it krautrock if it weren't for the fact that Perrey is French.

My Rating:

7/10
Any other thoughts you had about this album you would like to share?
Right now it's more of an album that I respect than an album I like at the moment, just based on how ahead of it's time it is, but I could see it growing on me.

Keys N Krates - Blackout EP
1. What were your VERY FIRST impressions on listening to the album, say from the first five minutes in (first time)?
Uh-oh, there is way too much rap in it. Honestly, it is not really my taste. The vocals didn't better it.

2. Did your first impressions change, i.e., did the album get better or worse as you listened to it (first time)?
Yeah, the second song got me less deprecating.

3. Which was stronger in your opinion, the opening tracks (first 2-3 songs), or the ending tracks (last 2-3 songs)?
I'd say the middle were best.

4. On repeated listens (if you did so), did you find you liked the album more, or less? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
N/A

5. What is your favorite track from the album, if you have one?
Ring the alarm, I liked the rhythm and the swivels.

6. What is your least favorite track from the album, if you have one?
Luv to Luv You is messed up with a overly high-pitched "sexy" voice. Gross.

7. Did you change your favorite or least favorite track as you listened to the album?
Not really.

There is not really much difference between most songs.

Cool boy's party.

10. Is this an album you would listen to again all the way through (for personal, recreational use, outside of listening to it for this club),
or are there just a few songs that you would listen to?

To tell the truth, I wouldn't listen to it.

11. How well do you already know the band/artist?
I have never heard of this artist before.

12. If you are familiar with this band/artist, how would you compare this album to any of their earlier/later material?
N/A

Actually not.

16. What sub-genre, if any, would you assign this music to?
Electro rap.

I disliked the vocals, completely.

18. Your overall album rating on a scale of 1-10
2/10

Any other thoughts you had about this album you would like to share?
I'm biased, I dislike rap too much. I do not intend to be mean or w/e but I just dislike the genre of the album.

When we're starting a new album can we try to stick to a thing where the person recommending writes up a little something like we did with the first two albums? I didn't even realize there was a new album up until just now.

Keys N Krates - Blackout EP
1. What were your VERY FIRST impressions on listening to the album, say from the first five minutes in (first time)?
Neutral. I wasn't blown away but I didn't dislike it.

2. Did your first impressions change, i.e., did the album get better or worse as you listened to it (first time)?
Definitely liked it more as I listened.

3. Which was stronger in your opinion, the opening tracks (first 2-3 songs), or the ending tracks (last 2-3 songs)?
I'd say it was pretty even in terms of quality from beginning to end.

4. On repeated listens (if you did so), did you find you liked the album more, or less? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
I liked it more. I've listened to it several times at this point and definitely now like it more than I did on first listen.

5. What is your favorite track from the album, if you have one?
Probably "Luv to Luv You".

6. What is your least favorite track from the album, if you have one?
I don't think I have one.

7. Did you change your favorite or least favorite track as you listened to the album?
I don't think so.

8. How would you describe the variety of tracks available on this album? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.
Not too much variety, but it's only an EP so that's certainly not a criticism.

9. What is the overall mood on this album?
Cruising in the city at night.

10. Is this an album you would listen to again all the way through (for personal, recreational use, outside of listening to it for this club),
or are there just a few songs that you would listen to?

Yes. I already have several times.

11. How well do you already know the band/artist?
I have never heard of this artist before.

12. If you are familiar with this band/artist, how would you compare this album to any of their earlier/later material?
n/a

13. Do you see any way the album could have been improved?
More complexity to the beats. Kind of surprising they weren't more complex honestly considering that they have a drummer.

14. Would you recommend this album to others?
Sure, assuming they're into trap or other modern electronica.

15. Are you interested in listening to more albums by this band?
Definitely. I could see them moving in other, more interesting directions with their sound.

16. What sub-genre, if any, would you assign this music to?
Trap.

17. (NOTE: Ignore this question if the album does not have lyrics.) Did you like the vocalist? Hate him/her? Any impressions?
I don't think it really had vocals, just some vocal samples. That said, the way the vocal samples were handled was probably my least favorite thing about the music.

18. Your overall album rating on a scale of 1-10
7/10

Any other thoughts you had about this album you would like to share?
While this album didn't amaze me, I could totally see these guys putting out something truly fantastic in the future.

1. What were your VERY FIRST impressions on listening to the album, say from the first five minutes in (first time)?

I was really impressed! Loved the sample-ridden, 808 rompers in the beginning. Got me anxious for the rest of the EP!

2. Did your first impressions change, i.e., did the album get better or worse as you listened to it (first time)?

Nah, it was pretty consistent.

3. Which was stronger in your opinion, the opening tracks (first 2-3 songs), or the ending tracks (last 2-3 songs)?

Hmmm, this is hard. Prolly last few tracks.

4. On repeated listens (if you did so), did you find you liked the album more, or less? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.

Only spun this once. Picked 'Lucifer' out the bunch and spun that a couple times after, but not the whole EP.

5. What is your favorite track from the album, if you have one?

'Lucifer' & 'Oh Baby'.

6. What is your least favorite track from the album, if you have one?

'Uncle Otis'

7. Did you change your favorite or least favorite track as you listened to the album?

Nope. I knew what I like/disliked first spin.

8. How would you describe the variety of tracks available on this album? Feel free to be very detailed if you like.

Not much variety.

9. What is the overall mood on this album?

I can't really tell. Upbeat, boy-racer, party.

10. Is this an album you would listen to again all the way through (for personal, recreational use, outside of listening to it for this club), or are there just a few songs that you would listen to?

Prolly just 'Lucifer'.

11. How well do you already know the band/artist?

I've heard there other stuff like 'Dum Dee Dum' and their whole Lucid Dreams EP.

12. If you are familiar with this band/artist, how would you compare this album to any of their earlier/later material?

Their sound doesn't differ much, but they have definitely improved their production. If that makes sense. Compared to 'Dum Dee Dum' and a few songs of Lucid Dreams EP, you can hear how clearer they're production has become.

13. Do you see any way the album could have been improved?

Nah, I don't know. Concept? I didn't really like the composition of some of the songs, but they were still listenable. Except for 'Uncle Otis'. That song was weak and should've been scrapped imo.

14. Would you recommend this album to others?

Maybe. But I could recommend their better, later stuff. So, maybe.

15. Are you interested in listening to more albums by this band?

Have. I love 'em!

16. What sub-genre, if any, would you assign this music to?

EDM Trap.

17. Did you like the vocalist? Hate him/her? Any impressions?

Some of the vocal samples used were on point. Others weren't necessary. Like 'Uncle Otis'.

18. Your overall album rating on a scale of 1-10

7

19. What do you think of the production?

It was good! Dislike 'Uncle Otis' with a passion though. I just didn't get it. Other than that, drum patterns, vocal samples, everything was good.

20. Any other thoughts you had about this album you would like to share?

Weird listening to some vintage KnK. Glad I did though. I can appreciate their latest stuff even more now! Cheers, DJ!
