Lana Del Rey’s music has always felt rather monotonous to me. Albums such as Ultraviolence and Lust For Love felt tedious to get through, insipidly written, filled with unimpressive and stiff singing, superficial, and, worst of all, boring from nearly front to back. She is decent at creating a dense atmosphere, but there is not much more of interest going on below the surface layer. However, even as a routine Lana Del Rey hater, I had to admit that Normal Fucking Rockwell was a major ... read more

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

Before anything, I pledge you to not be harmful and insulting. If you do like the album, give Justin constructive support, if you don’t like the album, don’t be cynical, it leads to nowhere.

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

According to the artist, the album Justice was supposed to be a gathering album that everyone could relate to, but in reality this album sounds like a purely personal Justice. Despite the good intentions that seemed sincere, the musical content is often too hollow, once you sweep away the first layer, you are left with a predictable pop album.

It's quite confusing how much I remember the time when Justin Bieber created a tsunami of his own and broke multitudes of records when he became the ... 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

A legendary pair of hip-hop’s greatest visionaries, Billy Woods and Elucid have spent the last decade molding a platform for themselves built upon meticulous repartee and rhyme-labyrinths, of sorts, that will leave you entangled in confusion as you attempt to decipher what two near-poets have just said. Both artists having incredibly extensive and prolific solo catalogs under their belts, it only makes sense that they would gel so well when put in the same room. It almost feels as if ... 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

We live in this world although vast, it’s not something we explore nearly enough. In the alps of Mount Everest, you look down on an open lush world upon you. But not even the heights of some of the largest peaks of this world can really show you how much of the world is unexplored. A peak lies every step of the way, behind that peak lies another, and another. You never reach the apex, as you die before you get to it. YouTube artist, Quadeca, has been climbing this hypothetical mountain ... read more

Drawing on both the early foundations that built their cult following and the present inspiration, Godspeed You Black Emperor delivers a searing album full of open-hearted truth. "G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END! "is a dazzling piece of music, as much in the power of the orchestration as in the imagery. A colossal experience to be lived imperatively as a fall with eyes closed. You could say it's a return to grace.

And if the year 2021 was a "pivotal" year for Post-Rock? In ... read more

Ok Orchestra is inevitably an improved version of AJR, however their too often grandiloquent content remains too irritating and tiresome. While their state of mind should naturally make you want to share an experience, the indigestible majority density gives off something of a bitter feeling that you unconsciously run away from.

It's fascinating to see how this popular but hated band continues to fuel musical "debates", although of course that term is clearly not evocative as ... read more

I was scared that Ginger was going to signify which particular direction the group was going to go in (I don't dislike Ginger, but I found it to be pretty forgettable in comparison to the Saturation trilogy and especially Iridescence) but I can proudly say that the boys have won me back over. I absolutely adore the psychedelic, laid-back and hazy approach they took for the beat. It not only just sounded cool as fuck, but it meshed super well with Kevin, Joba and Danny Brown's verses. Speaking ... read more

“Tired of myself making the same mistakes, made me re-evaluate the way I live.” ~ Justin Bieber

Bold claims from a man who can’t seem to make any good music after 13 years.

The unfortunate problems with “Justice” is a problem that mainstream pop has been having problems with for years. This saddening problem is that mainstream pop doesn’t really have much to vary with their music style, production, subject matter, etc. Fast forward to present day, you can ... 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 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

I JUST WATCHED DANNY BROWN COME OUT OF JOBA'S MOUTH WHAT IN THE FUCK I LOVE THIS! THIS WAS WORTH THE WAIT LETS GOOOOOOOO

In all seriousness, this is exactly what I wanted from Brockhampton. I was worried that with some of the mainstream success Sugar had and with all of the new fans, they would sacrifice doing something exciting to do something that would have mainstream appeal. But this single goes in the complete opposite direction.

This is some grimey and hard rap shit with a crazy ass ... 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

Chemtrails Over The Country Club checks all the LDR boxes. She's of course an artist in constant evolution, her voice keeps somehow getting better and better with time. The weather in this record is somewhat completely different from NFR yet it has some similarities.
The music direction feels more effortless than her last albums but is more palatable this time around, I feel like this album will please the audiences more, just like Born To Die.
For the first time I actually feel Lana being ... read more

hip hop think tank – episode 5 – Wu Tang Clan

I was waiting for this famous episode, so I could thank you for all the support, the love I received for this new series, as well as for the 1500 followers! It's a great pleasure to be able to exchange with you and share my writings with you! I always get fantastic feedback from passionate people and it means a lot to me, I could never thank you more, Love.

enchantingly hypnotic, lana is as enrapturing as ever. she shows her expert annunciation, and demonstrates her recent evolvement. ‘nfr’ and ‘violet bent backwards over the grass’ have their vibes coalescing into ‘cotcc’.

importantly, producer jack antonoff takes a laid back approach to this album. after his recent successes with taylor swift, he has shown himself an adept creator capable of changing his style; this addition to his discography is arguably ... read more

The History of The Albums – n°315

I also recommend you to read in order my previous reviews on John Coltrane, listed at the end of the review, in order to better understand his immense career and this one]. In the concept of my series, it is both impossible not to assign a final episode to John Coltrane since his death comes in 1967, and also not to talk about Meditations, one of the greatest masterpieces of his discography. If John Coltrane enjoys an outstanding reputation in the ... read more

Look, I like this. It's pretty; it's atmospheric; it feels monumental. But here's the thing: I enjoy this album because I like Godspeed. The band at this point in their career have developed a tried and true formula, and this doesn't exactly do anything to break that mold. I've also found that I've never been smitten with GSY!BE's style of post rock compared to their contemporaries (I have F# & LYSF at a 78 and a 72 respectively). I don't want it to come off like I'm shitting on this ... read more

Calming, the only sounds to be heard is the wisps of wind flying by. Staring into the midnight sky, an empty black. Nothing to be found except one star, alone, shining bright as ever, but once again alone. “Chemtrails Over the Country Club” is that star, as much as it shines, it doesn’t seem to shine bright enough as if it were a full sky. As incredibly raw and serene as it is, “Chemtrails Over the Country Club'' still contains points and times where the album has ... read more
