SUBLIME AND RIGHT ON TIME.
Specified as art and experimental rock, Alt-J’s This Is All Yours has surpassed whatever box they were supposed to stay in. With haunting sounds and distorted vocals, this trio tackled Wu-Tang lyrics, covers, and Miley Cyrus samples to the highest degree of harmonized and instrumentalist flattery.

This Is All Yours may be the most textured album of the year, with out of this world sounds that flow like water, it’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Yet and still, the mainstream world continues to dim the light on the brightest of stars for being too cryptically beautiful.
