The best boyband since One Direction is finally back.

Watching a band that is as unfaltering in their constant knack for creativity and vision as Brockhampton is in action is a truly mesmerizing sight to behold. I honestly feel bad for anyone who won’t be able to get into Brockhampton’s music before their supposed disbandment at the end of the year as following around the artistic metamorphosis Brockhampton has foregone since the days of the Saturation trilogy has been like ... read more

The light is so goddamn bright.

Me and BROCKHAMPTON I feel have this strange connection. Obviously not a friendship (Reminder that parasocial relationships can be extremely harmful), but rather I've felt, only upon taking a look at my own life, that I live in parallel to BROCKHAMPTONS artistic journey that they have taken across the mere 6 years since their formation. The groups rise to power is stuff of legend, with the idea of a large group of friends trying their hardest to make music they ... read more

What makes an album absolutely awful? No, I mean something so atrocious to the point it is blatantly offensive, about topics that will upset the masses due to its morality, something so bad that it’s pure quality and what it truly represents is the reason for its downfall. If anyone can do it in this music industry, it’s Justin Bieber, arguably the world's most hated artist. I’ve tried my best over the years to defend this man’s career, that his music was genuinely ... read more

RoadRunner is one of the most sincere and singular albums of Brockhampton, as much thematic as in the writing. It's a beautiful adventure as well, but I think the interest is mostly in some individual songs more than in the whole

Formed in Texas in 2015, Brockhampton has quickly become in a few years the favorite Hip Hop group of the listeners, while yet the format "group" in the genre occupies a small place nowadays. It is necessary to realize that apart from a few duo (or even ... read more

I'm not biased....I SWEAR I'm not biased.

Before I start talking about the actual re-recording, I need to express once again my eternal love for Taylor Swift and her masterful music. I have been a swiftie since 2012, and back then I was a completely different person from who I am right now. I pretty much grew up listening to her songs, so to be hearing this album all over again with a Taylor that grew up just as much as me, is so fucking emotional. Lately I have been so sad about growing up ... read more

I thought yall were fucking joking, giving Justin a 0 feels like such a cliche to me at this point...and then I heard it.

In a way I think Bieber saw this as him going out in a blaze of glory, telling the industry and the world to go fuck themselves, he will say what he has to say and nobody can stop him from doing so. No compromises here baby!

And yet what we got is someone on AJR levels of delusion about what they're making, taking Lauryn Hill's Unplugged 2.0 christian preachy as shit ... read more

this is so much better than level of concern lmfao

ok time for the real review. even though tyler’s vocals are good, the real highlight of this track is the instrumental and production. the guitars and synth are just insanely fun. they have a similar vibe to bands like the killers, the strokes, phoenix, or even inerpol. the drums are also very good but what do you expect from twenty one pilots. when i first heard about this song, i had no clue what to expect. the odds seemed really ... read more

Finalmente chegou o relançamento do álbum "Fearless" de uma das maiores estrelas do mainstream atual, Taylor Swift, e para quem não conhece a razão desta decisão vou tentar explicar da melhor maneira possível nesta review.

A Taylor trabalhava numa gravadora chamada Big Machine Records e assinou com essa gravadora aos 15 anos de idade. Como ela era muito nova e estava tendo a chance de tornar um sonho realidade, a gravadora fez uma coisa que ... read more

Corny. Bloated. Faux-experimental. Boring. Oversentimental. Overblown. Overrated. The 7 key words that describes the latest album from rapper, singer, producer and youtuber Quadeca entitled 'From Me To You'. I've never watched that many videos from Quadeca or heard much of his music but what I have heard has never really impressed me, he just seemed like another YouTube rapper to me but what made him stand out a little bit from his contemporaries was the fact that he latched onto an Emo Rap ... read more

As life passes by around us, we all have to come to terms with growing up, gaining responsibilities, and moving into a new stage of our life. We have no choice but to face those consequences ourselves as we mature, leaving our innocence behind like a worn-and-torn stuffed animal and entering into a vast, brutal, often obscured reality that we’re not prepared to face. “Time ‘n’ Place” perfectly encapsulates the frightening feelings of growing up, of watching the ... read more

I was honestly worried about how this album would turn out considering its unusual rollout. I didn’t really love their “Technical Difficulties” series, the album’s release being pushed further and further back, a handful of snippets that I wasn’t super impressed by, and the longest amount of time the collective has ever worked on one album had made me expecting something below their typical level of quality. However, now that we have the final product, ... read more

This new version of Fearless to me feels like a game remake...and I mean one of the good ones, it pretty much improves upon everything from the original while not taking away anything that made the original good in the first place, it helps the album stand the test of time more without making any drastic changes that might put off original fans of this, besides track order it's pretty much a 1:1 recreation of the original with slight improves that honestly really push the album into the ... read more

The History of The Albums – n°317

Despite the extra-musical contexts I think it is essential to talk to you about a page of history that Ike & Tina Turner offered us, specifically with the single and album called River Deep - Mountain High, released in 1966. In the purely artistic framework on which I will judge my review, separating the artist from the human, Ike & Tina Turner are known to have been key elements of the Soul in the 60s. So yes, I think you probably know Tina ... read more

The History of The Albums – n°318

Banned from live performances and stays in the United States, the Kinks could only really rely on the link with their country and their musical content to continue to make history. Obviously this did not prevent them from continuing to be successful in America with their singles/albums but the constraint was significant. That's why Ray Davis and his friends went for a more "English" content, detaching themselves from a kind of ... read more

Like water for mankind, Wendy’s solo record is a solid foundation for what hopes to be a steady solo career.

9.0 - Phenomenal

WHO LET THE DOPE BOYS OUT!!!

ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE has probably been my most anticipated album of the year so far. And for good reason at that. I’ve been a huge fan of BROCKHAMPTON for 2-ish years now, and they were extremely important in my love of music as a whole, along with Tyler, the Creator. Their chemistry, style, and vibe all around is unmatched to anything I’ve listened to, and they are one of the most unique acts today. I took a break from ... read more

The History of The Albums – n°319

I also advise you to read my previous review on Cecil Taylor Quartet's Looking Ahead (1959), in order to better understand its beginnings and this one]. According to me I would define the history of Free Jazz in 3 distinct waves, the first one that we often classify under the term Avant-Garde Jazz from the beginning of the 50's to 1958 that can be qualified as prototype and experimentation of free improvisation and total destructuring of compositions ... read more

Beautifully enriched in sparkling synths and alluring vocals, <loveabout,> is an even more ambitious attempt at nailing the retro sound that is ever so underutilized in the current Korean musical landscape.

0.2 - THË ŠHÅDØW Rฤ˜ÅลM (THIS EP CURSED. DO NOT LISTEN)

Welp, I guess we have the White Savior trope in music form now.

WARNING: This is a long ass rant. It’s dumb. It contains religious shit and cultural appropriation too, so yeah. I also think that Christian art and rap is completely wrong, but if done wrong it can lead to this shit. So, welcome to the show.

I haven’t listened to much “bad” music. I try to do this on purpose. But I ... read more

Even though I didn't like the album Justice very much, it was notable that Justin had improved since Changes so I don't understand how he could release something even worse than that album. This EP is completely unnecessary and brings again the "R&B" sound of Changes but even less creative and sonorously exhausting.

All She Wrote (1.5/10)

I heard this album with no context of what this is and never heard a My Bloody Valentine album before and I am really happy about that. The influence this album had on people is incredible, and to think that this album was made in 1991 shocks me. This album is really amazing with the noisy guitars that are so loud. You can barely hear the vocals in a great somehow genius way. The innovating ideas on here work so well.

When I finished this album I thought to myself. How did I never listen to ... read more

A bit of a belated return to form for Godspeed You!, but a welcome one all the same.

From the soaring crescendos of Lift Your Skinny Fists to the brooding, pensive atmosphere of F#A#∞, Godspeed You! Black Emperor made their name known by constructing long-winded and elaborate medleys, with field-recordings intertwined between each monolithic musical apex to help drive the album’s narrative. However, the Canadian collective, following their return after a decade-long hiatus, with ... read more

It is indeed a veritable collection that pays homage to its original tracks with a tinge of vocal maturity after more than a decade. Those looking for a reexperience of the late 2000s to early 2010s will be surely delighted with the additional of the From The Vault tracks with its more polished production that is still thematically consistent with her trademarked Fearless sound. For those who listened to her casually back then, it is a delight to see the subtleties in the reimagined production ... read more

hip hop think tank – episode 6 – Tread's investigation

preamble:

This episode dedicated to Tread will be accessed as a guide (so relatively different from what I usually offer), where I will explore the background/history, the characteristics of the trend, as well as a reflection on the future. This guide will also continue with concise reviews, a ranking of the best Tread projects and a recommendation playlist. Enjoy

As I was going through my ideas for a new episode, I thought ... read more
