The History of the Albums – n°300 – On the occasion of this symbolic figure, I would like to thank all the people who have supported me so far, be it those who have always been there, those who supported me at the beginning and today. By the way, I would also like to thank you all for the 1400'! I wanted to tell you how grateful I am, especially since History of the Albums is the project I am most proud of. It is a project that I have been thinking about for many years and that ... read more

Carnage is not just another page, it opens the door to a whole new story. It is a human and personal deliverance for the authors who allow us for 40 delicious minutes to close our eyes and escape.

Unless you were born yesterday, there is no need to introduce Nick Cave, a genius, an accomplished legend in the history of music. The Australian, known under multiple aliases, first as a band in the late 70s in the midst of the birth of Post-Punk and New Wave with The Boys Next Door quickly ... read more

No matter your opinion on the band, you must admit that King Gizzard and The Wizard Lizard are one of the most untamable and sonically fluctuating bands of modern-day, never settling into staleness. Through their prolific release schedule, the band has never seemed to run low on unorthodox album concepts. This was even the case with their run of albums in 2017, releasing 5 within the span of 11 months, yet having each feel unique in their own way. However, the band’s most recent output ... read more

The History of the Albums – n°301

[I also recommend that you read my previous reviews on Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, to better understand the context and this one].After a tumultuous yet prodigious year 1965, Bob Dylan had already reached the glass ceiling, marked by the break with his old traditional folk fan and his rise to commercial success with his new Folk Rock/Blues Rock formula. So after the 2 classics Bringing It All Back Home and Highway ... read more

The impossible has happened, my favorite robotic couple has split up indefinitely.

Warning: This review is definitely not too musically deep or anything, but it's a humble attempt at capturing the emotion behind their split-up. Do feel free to criticize my points and analogies if you'd like to. It was my fight or flight response to the end of their iconic brand of music to make a review, not garner clout from this moment of despair.

Minimalist club penchants for the soul. There's something ... read more

Approaching a new Indie Rock aesthetic and releasing a more diverse and elaborate instrumentation, Little Oblivions sounds like a new, more pop turn for Julien Baker. In spite of the limits, she can always count on her particularly harrowing and hard-hitting writing.

Soon only 25 years old, Julien Baker has built a formidable career, especially because she started early, officially after she turned 18 and unofficially long before that with her first band The Star Killers. Marked by a rather ... read more

Look at how they massacred my boy...

For years, I have been pretty dissatisfied with the state of mainstream metalcore. A lot of it is the same, awful, melodic sound that is over done (and has terrible hooks 99.9% of the time). Hidden within the shitstorm that is this scene however, there were always two bands I loved: Every Time I Die and Architects. The former for their infectiously lovable and fun personality (except for that song with Brendon Urie, that can go fuck itself) and Architects ... read more

Edit: 30 listens later I disagree with myself, this is amazing. Probably one of their best singles to date, the production is really fresh, the lyrics are alright, and the vocals sound even better than Sarah did with their old endeavors. Also they look like some sort of jazz outfit on their new group photo, they look killer though lmao. Also I'm still a bit weirded out that Jamie doesn't have production credits on any of their Civilisation stuff yet he's on Bugsnax. Whatever.

One thing I gotta ... read more

Baguette et béret – essai n°4 // The History of the Albums – n°302

Today I will try to pay tribute to one of the most beautiful legends and one of the best French-language albums of all time. I can say without hesitation that the Belgian Jacques Brel ranks among the legendary trio of French music alongside George Brassens and Serge Gainsbourg, and that no one else can hold their own. So yes, I'm talking about a monument that should be taken as the ultimate example, ... read more

Just when I thought there was a possibility of a new Daft Punk album, they break up. I just cannot believe the iconic duo are never going to make music anymore. While the news is depressing, Daft Punk had nothing left to prove and had a legendary run. Electronic music would not be the same without Daft Punk, and they continue to influence many electronic and dance artists.

Review:
I listened to this on the last day of a school year because of the name, so this album holds a special place in my ... read more

Seems like they really stick with these ugly ass covers. This should be called W, because i don't see any L's.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard return once again with the continuation of K.G., L.W. And yea, it's good. It's actually better them it's prequel, by far.

K.G. played with some interesting ideas, but they really played it way too safe with that one, end ng up in having a record with way too many samey songs, resulting into an unmemorable project that everybody forgot about quite ... read more

-THE NU METAL CHALLENGE- PART 6/25

CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES
THIS IS not that bad…???

Alright, look, after listening to 2 really shitty nu-metal albums, this kind of feels like a breath of fresh air. I’m not saying this album is good or decent, I mean look at the score I gave it, it's not really positive. But for 2000s nu-metal standards, this isn't that bad.

There are some things I like about this album, for example, the production. The guitars sound pretty damn good most of the ... read more

this was one of my most anticipated albums of 2021. and as of right now, it’s also my favorite album of 2021. Julien’s stripped down instrumentals with a focus on songwriting in vocals is nothing revolutionary, but she does it incredibly well. Julien has such a beautiful voice and her songwriting is just incredible. every song on this album is at least good, and the majority of the tracks are great. i got a bit worried that i would be disappointed because the singles were too good ... read more

Instagram Core Bands Nr 7

Yeah I'm doing Architects, y'know a band people actually know about and respect, I've been getting ads for these guys for a while and when I checked this out in the hopes it'd be good...well it was just too Instagram Core for me to not review in this series. You can't fool me with those 2 million monthly listeners you got on spotify this is just as formulaic generic and fake deep as it gets.

Aight so now let's get this out of the way, Flight Without Feathers is the ... read more

Damn, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have come out with a pair of their kookiest concepts to date: they made two records about being extremely fucking boring!

Look, even for what i’m going to say about this record, I mean no disrespect to King Gizzard at fucking all. When you step back for a moment, it is an absolute goddamn miracle that King Gizzard has been this consistently good for this long. Think about it, in the nine years that King Gizzard have been around, they have not only ... read more

The History of the Albums – n°303

This Californian rock band recognized in the 60's is typically the kind of band I like. Not as popularly recognized, often neglected to its true value today and distinguished by an atypical style/content. While it particularly smells of acid, generously swallowed by these individuals and imagined in an underground rock/proto-punk garage, the Seeds are known to have been one of the first pioneers of Psychedelic Rock at the same time as the Yarbirds or ... read more

King Gizzard continues their creative drought and decides to just make another album with the same Eastern influenced sounds that people complained about on KG.
I’m starting to think this is either a joke or some sort of self sabotage. This makes Brunswick East sound like a masterpiece. I find it hard to believe that a band that’s recorded daring & unique music for years just magically only remembers 2 vocal melodies & maybe 3 guitar riffs.
These songs have no reason ... read more

THE NU METAL CHALLENGE PART 6/25

We were this close to getting out of the red. THIS CLOSE.

Unfortunately, Papa Roach does not end our streak of shitty albums that we are forced to cover in this series. And the only reason this really fails to stick the landing is because of what I'm now calling the "Limp Bizkit" effect. Basically, this entails that a band has bangers for instrumentals and has the potential to make great songs, but the one thing stopping them is their lead singer ... read more

I've been extremely excited for this album to come out. Every single was so damn great, and this didn't disappoint.

Julien Baker is, honestly, someone that i have mever listened to before this album has released, and the first time i've heard her was probably through "Hardline" and the other promotional singles leading up to this release. Time really passed so fast, it feels like yesterday when i've seen it getting announced for 26th and. Sheesh. My birthday was yesterday and now ... read more

L.W. - A record unreasonably belittled by expectations.

Like the experimentation King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard or not, you have to admit that they are a band that respects artistry. Continuous innovations like Nonagon Infinity, Flying Microtonal Banana, even when King Gizzard has a consistent sound, they have always been testing with different styles and subgenres, perhaps such aspect is the reason for attracting so many listeners. Which, is also probably why people turned their back ... read more

What a great surprise! As someone who has never been a fan of Madison’s work up until this point, I have to say that this album was a slap on the face. I always thought she was just an average pop singer that does EDM music centered around radio but this has proved me wrong. Life Support is creative, original (while still having clear inspirations and influences) and very bold for a debut album. It mixes pop and alternative in a similar way to what Lana Del Rey did on Born To Die, except ... read more

Este es el primer disco que escucho de C. Tangana, y posiblemente sea el AOTY de 2021.

La comparación entre "El Mal Querer" de Rosalía y "El Madrileño" que hacen algunos usuarios del sitio solo tiene sentido desde la retórica "spaniards making artsy music". Quizá en algunas cadencias, los tarareos y los vocoders si coincidan, pero es solamente eso. Mientras Rosalía hace una construcción absolutamente abstracta con ... read more
