Youth Lagoon is a soggy mess

Okay, so after PFK gave Youth Lagoon's new album Year of Hibernation an 8.4 and "best new music", I listened to it again, and it still blows. None of these songs have any definition to them. They just kind of lie there in a pool of reverb and maybe towards the end, there's a big blocky drum beat that, at least, allows a listener to decode what time signature they're in. But mostly they just sit there, the singer's voice high and chirpy and irritating in an mush of echo, refusing to develop in any way, or even proceed in a linear fashion. This is not best new music, or even good new music or possibly even music, just trendy stupid shit.

I feel like maybe I don't like music anymore.
