The Needle Drop

The Origin of My Depression is one of the most harrowing offerings in experimental music this year. Profoundly disturbing and not for the faint of heart.

Jesus Christ. This is the most traumatic masterpiece since Deathconciousness.

Before I start, i'm sorry for the lack of effort i'm seemingly putting into my reviews recently. I can't help but feel like i'm not doing enough to put onto this reviews, but that may come down to me overthinking these reviews. I do that a lot, and it comes down to self-destructive tendency's. Sorry for not giving my all. Anyway, onto the review!

This album also has amazing songwriting like on 'Misspent Youth' which is just such a depressing song, I mean, the album is called 'The Origin of My Depression'. I do not think that I will think about this album's importance or how much I loved the album, but for ... read more
The best work of Uboa to date, "The Origin of my Depression" hits hard with its representations of different forms of trauma. It's a beautiful and destructive journey into the depths of hell, into horrific depressive disorders. I listened to this album 3 times in full without pause. It was dark listenings, impossible to appreciate. In fact, this album was not created to be loved, it's a music made to make you feel a sensation, to get you into the head of a tortured artist: Uboa AKA ... read more
