Evil Friends

Portugal. The Man and Danger Mouse - 2013

The year's most underrated record, Portugal. The Man's newest records could be compared to the latest Arcade Fire record, Reflektor. A band coming off critically acclaimed album teams up with a super producer to change their sound. The difference? Portugal. The Man kept their own sound while Arcade Fire completely adopted the LCD Soundsytem way. Oh, and also, Portugal. The Man did it better, with it's most profitable album filled with radio singles that were failed to capitalize on, and a shame in the fact that the one thing the band did wrong was not market this record, and with bands like Imagine Dragons (really?) being nominated for Grammys, there's no reason this album couldn't have sent the band to superstardom and reassure that Danger Mouse is in fact, a magic maker, after making his best work since Gnarls Barkley. Favorite songs: Modern Jesus, Purple Yellow Red and Blue Least Favorite Songs: Sea Of Air, Waves Most underrated song: Creep In A T-Shirt Most overrated song: Plastic Soldiers
