Listening to kidz bopz vol. 666

all of it β€” Here we are at the first track. Slow and softly strummed with smoky drums and brooding vocals.

hey! you! β€” Snappy drums with an element of funk, and a hint of vocoder? Slidy lead guitar that sounds much like an analog synth. Or maybe it is a synth?

yearning β€” A blasting energy like the air conditioner in a car on a hot, hot day. And the sun is out and blinding you because you forgot your sunglasses today - but you don't mind at all.

trail of my blood β€” Right off the bat it's catchy. You gotta hand it to Woozles, he knows how to write the hits.

confession β€” Droning organ sounds and voices from long ago will make you feel like you're in a cobwebby attic, inhaling dust from a century ago, but not minding it at all, because you're too busy admiring all the old stuff up there. Cinematic.

pass thru β€” A nostalgic stretch of poly synth chords and glossy vocals.

turning leaves β€” Rumbles with a deep energy.

under your skin β€” Melodies that will get under your skin and stuck in your head.

flavored soul β€” Like staring out the window of a very high city skyscraper and looking down at the tiny humans below, like little ants.

never love β€” A love song but with a fire of emotions behind it.

the deal β€” A satisfying joint effort between drums that ride the ride and a lively bass line, brought together with twangy guitar.

inhale/exhale β€” Aptly named. A nice combination of spoken word and a silky beat.



Final Thoughts

An album I consumed like candy at the movie theater, quick - and it was all gone way too soon. Leaves you wanting more, which all good albums do. Great work, Woozles 🀩🀩🀩
