Album Review: "So Much So Little So Little So Much" by Charming Timur

So Much So Little So Little So Much
Please allow me to reintroduce myself.

Remember those times in your life when you met someone so special or found that place that meant so much to you?

What about when you had that second meeting, second date, or second time eating that meal that tasted so wonderful?

Can we honestly say that our second meetings meant the same as the first? Had the shine worn off?

The first meetings are always wonderful, but the second meetings can be much of the same.

When we meet the loves of our lives we feel something. Let's think about our second dates though. Today we're having a second date with Charming Timur.

Charming Timur
Charming Timur, the one man musical trainwreck from Helsinki is back again.

His For The Duration of Psychiatric Treatment was one of my favorite albums of 2015. It was so delightfully weird and off the wall music very much fitting of its title.

There's always some apprehension when hearing an artist for the second time. The sophomore slump as it were, but in this case, Charming Timur has returned with a solid album that's every bit as good, if not better, than the previous.

To begin with, the songs make no sense whatsoever and that's just so refreshing.

Heavy metal guitars thunder underneath electronica melodies and beats as though that's how it was meant to be.

The drums are minimal, but powerful. The backbone is strong enough to lift a car.

The vocals change with the moods. So Much So Little So Little So Much features angry growls, warbling, and straight up vocal singing.

If you can picture what it would be like to see inside the head of a high functioning adult, you'll probably have some idea as to what this album feels like.

As someone who can't shut it down, this album is perfectly imperfect and more than just a little insane.
