℗ 2020 Dead Oceans
Sounds like everything else out there. Super boring. I always felt anyone can write ballads and it seems all she does is write slow introspective blah. How this deserves any Grammy nomination is beyond me. When she starts writing some variety and upbeat songs then maybe. Not one song has a catchy beat or melody. Might as well be siting at a poem reading and a bad one at that
I can’t say just how great this album is. I had high expectations and I wasn’t even expecting how good it was. It’s easily album of the year, I don’t see any albums that could take that away from it. I just can’t help but listen to it, it’s so great.
This album is very very good but is it me or is the instrument backing fuzzy or over blown mixing or is it supposed to be that way? example garden song the vocals are clear but instruments are fuzzy
I just recently discovered Phoebe’s music, and this album has cemented her as one of my favorite artists. I love all the subtle dark humor she puts in her songwriting, and melodies on this record are simply gorgeous. My favorite songs are: Savior Complex, Punisher, Chinese Satellite, and Kyoto. Best album of 2020.
Pheobe Bridgers' 2nd album simply glides with beauty. "Kyoto" was a great change of pace and "Garden Song" and "I See You" are standouts. The last two are amazing as well. There's no filler here -- just great track after great track! Her lyrics are also stunningly crafted. Pheobe offers a fair share of surprises throughout... the ends of "Halloween" and "I Know the End" were particularly unique.
Listen to this album!!! This album is a beautiful bridge between Phoebe and the many genres and artists which inspire her. She has come into her own even more with Punisher owning an ominous folk sound only amplified by soft atmospheric vocals, and brilliant song writing. Punisher is an experience of both happiness, deep dread, and moving on, you need to listen.
I only recently heard of Phoebe Bridgers, reading an entertaining profile of her in the New Yorker, and I was charmed enough to buy the first album. Phoebe continues to fulfill her promise and the hype. If you dig deeper, she is a popular collaborator and endlessly creative, with a self-deprecating sense of humor. As long as she stays true to herself and grounded, she will be the songwriter of her generation. This collection is uniformly excellent and compelling. She turns sadness and hard times into moving entertainment you want to listen to again and again. Best with headphones so you can understand the words.
She is something special. When i listen to her music i just feel like only she can pull that off. Both of her abums are masterpieces. Only Lorde & Frank Ocean can go 2 for 2.. well.. until Phoebe that is🔥
Cohesive, cunning, dashing, dazzling. Highly recommend to listen all the way through without interruption to feel the flow. I really respect its engineering. The last song was so bold — such punctuation made me infatuated with Punisher as a body of work. The strings, the horns, the ambience, everything sweet is all enhanced by her direction. Beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you
People’s standards have really gone down eh. I like the eerie feel and simplicity of garden song but for the most part these tracks are nothing special. The problem with this artist for me is that every song’s melody seems close to being exactly the same. I see potential but she’s not there yet in my humble opinion 🤷🏻♀️
this woman never fails to prove how talented she is and how she is indeed one of the best lyrical artist of our generation. PLEASE give this album a listen you won’t regret it. 10/10 would recommend
I found Phoebe Bridgers on the movie “Between Two Ferns” they played about 20 seconds of her singing so I searched for the playlist of the movie and found that it was her then I bought her album “Stranger In The Alps”and have become a big fan of hers I wish Phoebe Bridgers would put her song “Waiting Room” on an album or as a single it is one of my favorite songs she sings and I have watched it on YouTube countless times I can’t wait for this new album to drop so I can ad it to my playlist
