Fantano reviews so bad the Vince review comments are comparing Taylor Swift and Winehouse lmao Guy actually scored this lower than Prima Donna? I loved the concept of that album, but sonically/as a work of music it's awful; that's actually ridiculous. If these Vince reviews don't damn his reviewing, nothing will. Meanwhile Fantano raves about the song that borderline doesn't fit the album at all - Big Fish. If it weren't for the title/underlying concept, that track gets dropped as a loosie single for sure; just feels out of place, even when the albums shuffled. But no, it's the highlight? I'd bet money Fantano listens to a record maybe two, three times fore he spews forth with his views. Honestly, how do people seriously look to this guy for insight? Vince makes the kind of records reviewers get into the biz for - artsy, unique, challenging - and all Fantano can do is mumble some gibberish about gummy bass. He criticises Vince for taking a back seat/feature slot on Love Can Be, without delving into the song at all, and then essentially describes why it works/is undeniably a Vince track? And then he points out Alyssa as irrelevant and some kinda lowlight, like the Winehouse nod on an album about fighting self-destruction & disillusionment is somehow out of place? When the Vince interlude that follows entirely dominates & sets the tone/pace of the album (which is why the thinner 'Love Can Be...' works...)? And Homage doesn't even get a mention? That song is the fucking critic's dream: all Vince, the bass & effects actually nail the 'underwater' feel perfectly, the references & entendre are endless, completely new sound, and the bars to suit? I was pretty content just ignoring Fantano, but I gotta wonder why you'd continually disrespect the few artists really pushing their game, who are in it for that artistic prestige. Like why are you reviewing? If you aren't going deep on the deep cuts, why bother with half-measures? Guy might be the antithesis of actual critique.
