King Krule – The Ooz: Album Review

I’m pretty late to reviewing this album. 3 months late. But I recently discovered it, and I love it so much.

I’ve been lacking morose depressing rock music for a while. I can only listen to sad rap like XXXTentacion’s Snow (feat. killstation) for so long. And so I have been delivered a 19 song package of morose, jazzy, post-punky, violent rock perfect for being emotionless at 7 in the morning.

Anyway, all semi-ironic jokes aside, this album is amazing. It revels in it’s darkness in a way that I haven’t really seen since Public Image Limited’s nearly 40 year old album Metal Box. I love it because it’s so relatable and so emotional.

The best track is probably The Ooz, closely followed by Dum Surfer. The Ooz is like a final cry of pain, and he breaks from the monotone vocals to make a song that is nearly as good as Lazarus by David Bowie. One thing I will say is that it’s not for everyone. It’s very dark, very depressing, very jazzy and post-punky, but if you are into that, you have to listen to it.

Rating: 9.5/10
