Obstacle of Affliction High quality metal that's impressive and finely polished. Strangely, it makes me think of my ass after I slid down that incredibly high sand dune at the nudist, sorry 'naturalist' beach. At least this album is far more fun.

THE GREAT CORNHOLIO I love this record because I think fat, greasy dog turds look best rolled in glitter. In this case, it was ProTools: AoaDC is somehow innocuous but insipid, with most of its best and worst moments becoming completely mitigated by studio sterility. I'm gonna give this album another try next time I'm taking it in the ass; that seems to increase its quality, according to another review here on Bandcamp.

DJBLAKLITE absolutely one of my favorite albums of the year I heard it (2020) the extreme heavys and melodic textures create a wonderful tapestry of beauty I've so rarely gotten to experience. I also had sex to the whole album one time. it was very enjoyable. Favorite track: Applause Of A Distant Crowd.

WE ARE THIN AIR Lightning fell from the sky. You weren’t able to step inside. Lightning dwells in your eyes. You wanna hear how the blast subsides. I’m a lost installment in your ear. I’m the final one to interfere. In a trending picture we are thin air. Lightning fell from the sky. We are impossibly grounded by all the death you apply. How are we certain that you survived? Reel the caller in. Cultivate the sound of fur. I will praise your chin. I will shake if I’m a blur. Tossed and found porcelain hound.
2.
Ghosts 03:58 video
GHOSTS Take this roof away from me. I’m staying here till something picks me up. Call the boy we used to see running wild until he had to stop. Ghosts were rising high in the air. They’ve been hiding for so long. All these frightened eyes you have spared. They’ve been scared all along. Take this sertraline relief. I’m down but I have fled the enemy. Shake some prosperous belief. We’ll steer towards its immortality. Boy, believe me. Boy, believe me.
3.
SMARTFRIEND Eighty pounds of me have turned to cipher and debris in preparation of a future moving in. I was not sufficient with a low nocturnal vision and resilient but retrograding skin. Sure I am excited to be happily invited, though a wire has been gnawing like a mole. This is not the lie I had expected to apply, when I was dragging my deformity down the hole. I am fit for every stage of labor in the golden age of marrying technology and mind. Thanks to the ambition of my physical edition I am taller than the man I left behind. I have good intentions, but a few of my extensions are sharpening the ending of a pole. This is not the lie I had expected to apply, when I was dragging my deformity down the hole. This is what you made of me, a big mistake. This is what you gave to me, another traitor. A failed creator.

Ruby Pool 04:09
RUBY POOL I wanna lay my head down now. I wanna turn the tide somehow. I wanna lay my head down now. I wanna turn the tide somehow. We are the lonely kids falling away from this tedious swarm of bliss inside. We’re in a ruby pool left with a kingdom rule. Shiny without a jewel in life. I wanna lay my head down now. I wanna turn the tide somehow. I wanna peel my face in doubt. I wanna wrap my arms around you.

ALIEN SHIVERS Everlasting friend why are you so certain? Why do you defend this contagious burden? Are you still here? This confrontation killing the perfect one. Alien shivers stalling his victory run (come along with me). Drifting away as the dopamine ray of his sun appears. Radiant and free. Eyes were sore from laughter. Now you claim to see purpose in disaster. Are you still here?
6.
Vertigo 04:04
VERTIGO Cut it to the right size. I’m telling you. Your portrait is a straight line to vertigo. Kneeling in a black fire and leaving you. Walking on a glass wire without falling through. Don’t be afraid of this memory. We made the greatest noise, didn’t we? Won’t you return to me, memory? Are you the same as you used to be?
7.
Still 04:09
STILL You’re off to set the record straight. Hurling down the road. Your mind is heaving heavily. You will is getting old. Still you bother. Still you wish to be clear. Still you bother to make it disappear. You’re done accepting casualties. The living should live. You’ve seen the executioner permitted to forgive. Ending themes find me constantly. (Look through this red window). Stormy day sweep the burst away. (Steer through this red water).

APPLAUSE OF A DISTANT CROWD Watch me now I’m vanishing in the light. I photographed my latest meal in black and white. I kept my faith in videos of cats in shoes. And spent a day on episodes on plastic use. Watch me now I’m vanishing in the light. I’m filtering my loosing streak warm and bright. A history I’ve left behind, high on words of all the stupid things we said but never heard. Straight to the extinction of your last company. Go to the lost amber funeral echo in the hall. Straight to the extinction, burn and moan. Go to the lost amber carved in stone. Filming the blue morning carefully. Climbing the late hours. When will you see me?
9.
Whaler 05:27
WHALER Glitch in my hand. I’m determined to withstand. Cause overgrown. Infiltrating baritone. Black mountain dew from my temper, for my truth. Tall apogee, I’m assembled, finally. Save the part you wrote.I want to escape night. All my emptiness should wither in famed light. Save the part below my scenario. Save the part below my dissolving eyes and bones. This is the grand borderline. (Whaler). I’m losing my grip every time. (Whaler).
