Still putting together my best-of list for 2015, but I think the 2016 list is finished. twitter.com/SLAVES_BC/stat…—

Whoops, I guess I forgot to say “Spoiler Alert”…
Seriously, though, that was my initial reaction on hearing this full album for the first time. I know it’s still very early in the year, and there will be plenty of high-quality releases yet to come (and I’ve even heard a few good ones already), so it’s ridiculous to make such a proclamation at this point. But I can assure you this record will definitely end up in my Top 16 list, probably very close to the top of that list. Because it’s that good.
