She did it again! Unlike other artists who may hit a slump on their second time out, Allie X doubles down on the weird and sad to make a debut album for the ages. With tracks like Casanova and Simon Says, Allie X navigates the traumas of a relationship, from obsession to possession and everything in-between. That’s not to say that the whole album is a downer: That’s So Us is a glib ode to astrologically-compatible friendship, and All the Rage feels as if it should be the new anthem for whoever loses their class president election. With CollXtion II, Allie X expands upon her god-given lyrical talents to offer us twelve amazing tracks with an impressive soundscape to match.
