LSD are a project group composed of Labrinth, Sia and Diplo (crazy how you can make LSD acronym with their names. Get it? LSD? Like a name of the drug that cool kids use to par-tay??) and – gotta be honest – I couldn’t care less about how this group is formed in the first place. Just like their group name “LSD” suggests, I can see they have attempted to convey the surreal and colourful aesthetic. But the issue is, the music videos remind me of the Oompa-Loompa dancing sequence from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the songs are just…. Um… y’know…. Eh.
While individual performances were decent in most parts, each song in their finished state feels tacky. Tracks like “Angel in Your Eyes” and “Audio” just sounded like free sample songs that C-rated Minecraft streamers would use as their intro. This album finished with a very questionable remix of the first single they released last year (“Genius”), featuring the one and only Lil Wayne. I think it says a lot about this album when Lil Wayne’s last verse of this track is just him spelling the word drug and LSD in a tune of the alphabet song: “a-b-c-D-R-U-G-h-i-j-k-L-S-D”. The instrumentation sounded like Imagine Dragons, Sia dropped a line about xanax and Lil Wayne was Lil Wayne. It was a bad trip overall :/
