This is part 4 of my Coin review series. If you'd like to see the other three parts, you can find those on my profile.

So I have no snappy intro so I won't even try to make one. I'm ranking each section of the Rainbow LP, starting with Red Orange, and working our way down. Let's get into it

First is Red Orange. And this is a disappointing start, with a weak batch of tracks. Hypnotica is very weird, and not in any good way. I really didn't like the trap beat, the random highly distorted ... read more
