    Drake's 'Nothing Was the Same': Our Impulsive Reviews

    Late into the weekend, Drake's much-anticipated third album Nothing Was the Same leaked to the internet. Here, SPIN editors give their hasty and completely impulsive opinions...(Read SPIN's full-length review of Drake's Nothing Was the Same here.)Charles AaronCredit NWTS to 40 feat. @champagnepapi. Unless you only listen to albums to queef out lyrical tweets, sub or otherwise, this album begins and keeps on going with the leading-edge sonic design of producer Noah "40" Shebib. Edit the vocals down to fillips and sideswipe hooks, sit on the bass, pitch up the tempos, and this is the craftiest dance-music record of 2013. As is, it's both the most subtly avant and compulsively listenable R&B or hip-hop record of the year.

    Vida Loca: 36 Hours with Gogol Bordello in New York and New Jersey

    To celebrate the release of their sixth album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, Eugene Hütz and his motley assemblage of gypsy-punks, Gogol Bordello, stormed New York, the melting pot that launched them back at the end of the '90s. Hitting an in-store appearance, a bonkers show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and a quick hop across the Hudson River to New Jersey, we were there to document 36 hours of their wild, wild life.

    Earl Sweatshirt's 'Doris': Our Impulsive Reviews

    Yesterday, Odd Future streamed Earl Sweatshirt's long awaited second album, Doris, on their website. Here, six SPIN editors give their hasty and completely impulsive opinions...Rob Harvilla: For many a thirtysomething rock critic, the initial thrill of Odd Future was vicarious: Here's what the kids are into; here, in fact, are the kids themselves. But every moment of pure joy they've experienced since is seemingly counterbalanced by hours upon hours of distinctly adolescent depression, rage, and loathing, self- and otherwise: Set aside six hours and trudge all the way through a Tyler, the Creator record if you're unconvinced. It's an unpleasant reminder that roughly 85 percent of your teenage years were/are pure misery, whether you make a quarter-million off of socks or not.Which makes Doris an orgy of exquisite melancholy, of often deeply moving inertia.
