Album Review

At first they seemed like they were from the pop-rap Asher Roth or Sammy Adams school, then their album The Bright Side made them seem like reggae-rap disciples of Sublime, but on their 2014 self-titled release, the Brighton, Massachusetts duo Aer get their self-reflection on. It's put up-front as the opening "Spades, Clubs & Diamonds" decides that keeping caustic people around is like "renewing a book you've already read," plus other bits of flip-flopped and spliffed-out wisdom, because the lazy, hazy, and faux-Cali vibe is still there, making all these laid-back looks at life infectious and cool. "I'm Not Sorry" sings the post-breakup blues with a honeyed, Pink Floyd-ish sway underneath, which isn't that odd a touch point for frat-rap, but the agitated, jarring bits of the song are suitably betrayed, infuriated, and communicate to all generations, even if those feelings are raised by "I know what you've been doing while visiting those colleges." Charming how "Pretty Lady (Around Me)" points out some sorority sister's "out-of-town smile," and when the unhappy drunk called "Ex" realizes it's "too short-sighted to see the morning of guilt," it's the welcome sound of suburban cads turning admirable. Call their effortless way irksome but Aer keep on growing, and if you've never had the experience of a well-adjusted 21 turning into a jaded, doubtful 22, Aer, the album, is that awakening on wax.

Customer Reviews

Let this be clear: I LOVE AER

Their singles were amazing. I wish they would have just saved them. I'm going to be honest. I was bored this entire album after song 4. Just seemed the whole thing was missing direction. Just wasn't very fun to listen to. Wasn't it musically compelling. Other than the first 4 songs and Movin It. I loved their signature beach vibes and what not. Was missing this album. Just seemed like this missed the mark. If this albums songs are the main focus of the tour, I'm not sure if I would go because again, the album was kind of boring. Again I love Aer. My most played artist. I love them. And it kills me to write this.

Not enough feel good tracks with the chill vibe. Too much rapping, thats not what they came up on..

Adulterated Musical Dimensions

Aer's musical vitality has steady decreased since The Reach in my opinion with only a few exceptions (Wonderin Why, Songbird, Take it Wrong, and Clubs Spades and Diamonds).

In the past Aer was able to craft 4D sonic landscapes using vocal overlays, multi-layered bridges, and surrealist lyrics to form well-rounded and one of a kind songs that set them apart from any other artists. What I hear now is simply 2D musical architecture featuring an archaically crafted beat and someone freestyling over it.
