Is angel olsen really going to force me to listen to this weirdo?

Tau says:

Bryan Ferry influence right there

Metalosis Maligna says:

Not a fan of the style, but at least Candy May is a killer, so thanx

Blaine Roman says:

Awesome video. Stumbled across this randomly and fell in love. It’s been hard for me to explain what makes him a great lyricist but you nailed it. Probably my favorite of the year.

Mic Chek says:

What’s your opinion on dirt nasty and three loco

edr rr says:

Listen well this album before the review and got so into it, listening to mellon head review well about it makes me happy, thanks mellon head!!!

Mike Madness Top Comment & Pint Glass Crew ™ says:

My favorite album of the year

Alejandro chavez says:

Alex Camarón

tom johnston says:

Reminds me of a lower key 80’s pop/soft rock Wheeler Walker Jr. . That would be a strange and awesome concert.

James Ranno says:

My theory that Americans don’t understand ‘taking the piss’ is confirmed if Melon doesn’t get the undercurrents on this album. These character portraits have nothing to do with Cameron, he’s creating vignettes and mocking these characters – endearing us to them by before exposing their deepest insecurities. Case in point Marlon Brando.

Brent Monaghan says:

There is no obvious weak track on this album. I guess that kinda makes me hate you less for rating Country Figs as your least favourite. Ok no it doesn’t, that song is SEX

Nathans Manhas says:

How is Country Figs your least favourite track you actual melon

From Memes 2 Dremes says:

Just listened to the whole thing wtf it’s so good who is this dude

E.C.S. Rattan says:

I think you miss the point of this album. He’s not speaking from his own personal perspective for each song’s lyrics. The majority of the lyrics are satire commenting on machismo and misogyny and internet culture. He’s not writing those types of lyrics to express his personal identity per se, but stuff he’s observing in culture that embarrasses him or makes him uncomfortable.

Rob P says:

One of my favorite albums of the year. Love the combination of strong pop songwriting, 80s production, all delivered with a husky, slightly atypical vocal performance

Jonah Universe says:

This album might be my favorite thing you’ve ever turned me onto. Good god this man is a MAD GENIUS.

Michael Ford says:

holy crap i love this album. blindly bought it the other day just based on some year end list inclusions, and i could not be happier. Sounds like Ariel Pink was held at gunpoint to make a Fleetwood Mac album about PornHub.My songwriter friends are stunned.

A A says:

you forgot the down syndrome jew

Rico Suave says:

Great album. #ALKCM FTW!

Aru Nca says:

His duet with Kirin J Callinan is memorable as well. Alex Cameron is the best Alternative music I’ve heard in a while.

Felix Colman says:

Absolutely Loved this album, it is by far my favourite for the year for pretty much all the above points you’ve made.

Zach Laipple says:

foo fighters- concrete and gold
next review

Tim Deans says:

Take a shot every time he pushes his glasses up. You’re fuked.

crTV says:

hey wasnt this guy in big enough

Ecléctico Iconoclasta says:

You would think a rich celebrity reviewer like Melonthano would be able to afford buying more shirts.
