Best track: Alright [First added to this chart: 11/25/2016]
'White Ferrari' continues the calmer atmosphere created by the previous tracks, drawing attention back to the now more focused and contemplative lyrics. The final verse apparently uses heavy effects but I still kind of can't believe that it's not actually Justin Vernon singing. Either way it's a brilliant way to close the track.
This segues into the wonderfully moody Seigfried, which features even more stripped back production giving further focus to the lyrics. This is the most contemplative track on the album with “Maybe I’m a fool, maybe I should move and settle, two kids and a swimming pool”. The sense of self conflict and uncertainty is also built by lines like “Been living in an idea from another man’s mind” and “I’d rather live outside, I’d rather go to jail, I’ve tried hell. What would you recommend I do”. The spoken word that enters at the end of the song seeks to resolve some of this, with the change in delivery marking a change in attitude, and the repeated lie of “I’d do anything for you” simplifies things and closes the track out.
‘Godspeed’ marks a shift from the sadder songs that preceded it. It also marks a massive growth in maturity with lines like “I let go of my claim on you, it’s a free world”. Its short length prevents it from outstaying its welcome, so it doesn’t really matter much that the track doesn’t go anywhere.
Closer ‘Futura Free’ is the only track with more focus on production than the comparatively weak lyrics. The mix of the electronic elements with the repeated piano notes gives a more upbeat atmosphere to the record. However the lyrics pick up when the electronic elements fade away giving more power to Frank’s stream of consciousness lyrics. The interview that ends the album gives a lot of extra personality and while it doesn’t end the record with a band, ‘Blonde’ is precisely the kind of album that doesn’t need to.
Overall ‘Blonde’ is a masterpiece of emotional music throughout almost all its tracks. The weaker tracks remain interesting and the strongest are completely overwhelming. Whilst the production isn’t revolutionary it fits everything that Frank is trying to get across on the record. The growth across the runtime makes for an immense experience, giving a very full picture of one of the artists we know less about on a more personal level.

Thanks man, I'll probably do write ups for the top 50 for the moment so I don't have to end up removing albums with notes sometime later.
Wow, thanks for the incredibly detailed and thoughtful notes on many of the top albums on this chart! They really add a lot of personality, and they make me want to hear some of the albums I've either passed over too quickly or ignored altogether, such as Undun. I love many of the albums here, especially Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit; St. Vincent; Visions; and Lost in the Dream. Great work!
