Aw yes, the album review: A 300-500 word write-up explaining all the eccentricities pretentious wordsmiths love and hate about a band’s new album. While most reviews tend to hover the line between a positive and negative analysis, we’ve found that some seem to deviate from the pack choosing to spend their time putting an artist down for months of hard work.
We, on the other hand, would rather give the power back to the artist by letting them take a stab at reviewing (or simply explaining) their new music. And in order to make that process as easy (and fun) as possible, we’ve decided to give the artists one word and one word only to describe each song off their new release – thus creating the One Word Album Review.
Featured on today’s OWAR (One Word Album Review; come on, keep up) is Waterparks’ infectious 10-track LP Entertainment. Really honing in on their craft and continuing to push their sound to a whole new level, Waterparks’ dynamic and experimental follow-up to 2016′s Double Dare is a refreshing take on the band’s brand of new age pop-punk.
Now, before we turn this too much into our own review, we’re going to pass things over to the band as they carefully chose ten words to describe each of their stylish new tracks. After reading what Waterparks had to say about Entertainment, be sure to pick up a copy here before the album drops January 26th via Equal Vision Records.
