Album Review
Nick Bien
Reviewed 2017-09-29 
Eleventh LP from LA-based, lo-fi, indie pop one-man-band Ariel Pink. Fairly cohesive as an album yet a few songs stand out to display Pink's songwriting talent.

FCC Clean
Recommended: 2, 6, 7

1. Time to Meet Your God (2:41) - proggy, epic chords and drum fills
2. Feels Like Heaven *** (3:16) - atmospheric love song, beautiful harmonies in chorus, simple drums, immediate favorite but could get old quickly
3. Death Patrol * (3:21) - subdued drum machine, bass-driven, funky guitars
4. Santa's in the Closet (3:02) - 80s synths, strange lyrics
5. Dedicated to Bobby Jameson * (3:50) - The Doors, groovy, tacky chorus
6. Time to Live ** (5:44) - lo-fi 80s rock, chorus of voices overlaid with distorted guitar, intense build up to chorus ~2:30, relatively long quiet ending
7. Another Weekend *** (4:15) - downtempo, acoustic guitar, cool time signature changes, sad lyrics
8. I Wanna Be Young (2:37) - groovy bassline
9. Bubblegum Dreams (3:13) - pop punk, catchy but slightly annoying
10. Dreamdate Narcissist (2:28) - goofy, lyrics include ‘Netflix and chiill’
11. Kitchen Witch (3:38) - trades off with female vocalist
12. Do Yourself a Favor ** (3:40) - slow ballad feat. acoustic guitar & whistling
13. Acting (4:32) - P-Funk bass line, vocoder, drags on a bit
14. Revenge of the Iceman (3:25) - The Sex Pistols, uptempo punky drums & bass, grunting vocals
