I absolutely love this record. Really beautiful, ethereal pop that conveys the feeling of love in such a unique and poetic way. Some really interesting experimentation on this album and some really lovely sounds in the background. I completely agree with this being viewed as his best release to date.

Yhhh not nearly the chamber pop magnum opus everyone is claiming it is, but it's good enough.

I wonder how much slaves we are to authority...

This artists albums are ranked exactly in accordance with Pitchforks ranking of them, and in a quite unusual order. Pitchfork and this site seems to think he is getting better all the time. That's not completely unique, but not common. The other way around seems to be the trend?

We have a reviewer in a large paper in Sweden, that seems to have very similar taste as me, so I focus on his reviews. When I was younger, I followed some others. He totally adored Perfume Genius first album but has then left his praise for mellow but positive reviews.

The reviewer could have changed? The quality of Perfume Genius could have disappeared? The reviewer was influenced by someone when praising the first album? Or he did not simply like the change? Expected something else? Or maybe I have no clue?

I will get to the bottom with this :) I was a bit impressed by Perfume Genius first two albums, so there will be no pain in really listening, not only glance, judge, and be done.

How does he follow up the impeccable 'Too Bright ' from 2014 ? You don't , that album is a modern classic.

How ever 'No Shape' is excellent . Confession time: I'm a complete PG fan boy and pretty much love all of his work so anything I write is completely biased in a positive way

Another PG album has landed on my years best list in 'No Shape'

This entrancing, gorgeous, devastating record shows the extent of Mike Hadreas' songwriting talents. In fact, I wouldn't even say "shows". Standouts like "Slip Away", "Go Ahead" and "Die 4 You" prove Mike is just showing off at this point. Listen to this record, and *try* not to feel something. Easier said than done.

It's very nice. I don't think it's the masterpiece that critics are making it out to be. And I prefer the edgier, more emotional Too Bright.

I hope it ends up in the Top Ten after the year ends. Deserves to be higher.
