alt-J - The Dream

At first, I thought alt-J’s fourth album was going to be defined by fun and quirkiness - opener ‘Bane’ is a love letter to Coca-Cola and third song ‘Hard Drive Gold’ satirizes cryptocurrency. Then all of a sudden, they struck me right in the feelings with ‘Get Better’, a painfully sincere and heartfelt song about gradually losing someone during the pandemic. ‘The Dream’ is a masterclass in songwriting scope, proving that music can be witty, romantic and mournful all at the same time.
