I like all the tracks whether it’s from the groovy upbeat track of Sorcererz to the emotional ballad of Fire Flies. They’re all great.
I thoroughly enjoy the focused perspective and mood of 2-D making all the tracks sound succinct with a great vibe. You can thank producer James Ford for making it sound more normal, in a sense.
While Demon Days and Plastic Beach are stand out albums for the band from most people’s point of view, in my opinion, they are still flawed. Tracks from these albums can feel repetitive (Dirty Harry, All Alone, White Light) or annoying (Glitter Freeze, Sweepstakes). I’ve listened to these albums religiously for an entire month, and those got stale making me have to skip them.
The Now Now isn’t like that for me. All the songs are the right length without getting repetitive and annoying with the nice synths mixed with other instrumentation and a bridge or a change up to keep the listener engaged. I know this album isn’t as ambitious and experimental as other albums, but that’s what makes me love it.
It’s basically a conventional album; all from one artist’s vision who brings it to life with their fellow band members having a consistent vibe and flow to it without having to reinvent music or change the music landscape. All they try to do is make you feel good.… Expand

It’s mostly an anti-mainstream album; instead of upbeat tunes to make you feel good, it makes you think and maybe even sad, depending on how relatable the song is to you.
My favourites are: Hostiles, Lonely Press Play, The Selfish Giant, You & Me, Hollow Ponds and Heavy Seas Of Love.
And for anyone who dislikes the album, regardless of your opinion, make sure to lower your expectations a few. That way you’ll be less disappointed. (this is a slight reference to Bo Burnham, so don’t take this paragraph too seriously)… Expand
