Benji is fantastic. Don’t let public personas fool you

Listening to Molina sing “Try hard to beat it” is powerful and terrible all at once. He definitely had insight into depression and its effects that you rarely see.

The point is that you often make your attacks personal and take any criticism of what you write personally. Frankly, I don’t mind when people write about not liking music. However, when it is as negative and attacking as your comments, it is frustrating to read. By all means say why you dislike something, but comments like, “This is why independent music is dying because sites like Stereogum have bought into this whole poptimism machine.” say more about your personal agenda than the music itself.

Interesting how we can scrutinize female pop stars until we are blue in the face, but as soon as we start talking about how a male pop star presents himself it is “unprofessional”. Total double standard.

I’m hoping this album is a grower. But so far I am more partial to Habits and Contradictions.
