I mean its pretty damn great. I had some issues with it feeling a bit loose, and fragmented at the start, but the second half is incredible. In fact the second half of this album is SO good it makes up for the first half being a bit nervous. I am glad this lived up to the hype. It's one of the most unique rap albums I have heard in a minute, even if it heavily borrows from other artists generously. Good shit. one of the best things to come out this year.

Edit 86 -> 91: I really believe what ... read more
The Heart Part 5 set extremely high expectations, but once you get settled into this project, it's a great continuation of Kendrick's growth as an artist, and a Mortal Man.

Edit (85 -> 91): Damn was a strong experience, but I can’t say I really loved any individual moments outside of the record that much. This album however is a display of Kendrick’s most vulnerable sides, as ugly as that can be, and it leaves about as much of an impression as his classics. This album is a ... read more
Dude, I’m about 5 songs into this thing, and I have to stop to say something

This is incredible hip hop. The flow from JID is incredible. The bars are all there, and somehow the hooks are catchier than ever.

I hope this continues through the whole album. My jaw has hit the floor a couple of times already. Absolutely loving it.

Edit: finished the album. This is JID showing that he really has something to prove. Being one of the oldest right now in the contemporary rap game, it feels ... read more
Joji releases his best single possibly ever with Glimpse of US, then decides he hates himself and his audience so he drops a 24 minute album with 8 minutes of material. This thing is embarrassing. This should not have come out. It is barely finished. I can't imagine thinking so little of your audience that you would give them this second disk of demo garbage, and call it an album

Watch people call this trash "experimental" and "deep". My god, stop letting him get away with ... read more
Twitter made you rate it a 100, but Harry is not your savior

DERIVATIVE. BLAND. UNINTERESTING. Harry Styles has lost all style in this album. Beforehand, Harry made very solid pop music for the masses that I seriously thought had quality and potential. Singer-songwriter cuts like 'Sign of the Times', showed real promise. But with 'Harry's House', I feel like all of the promise that was once shown has kinda faded away. Everything I found interesting about Harry's solo debut, seemingly is ... read more
Hellfire is black midi's most consistent project. The theme is clever and original. The songs pop, and feel like a refreshing take on an older style of music. It integrates much of what they have been doing on previous projects into a very ambitious full package. not overhyped. very fun. take a listen.

Edit (91 -> 96) PFFFSSSHHH this shit clicked heavy. This is the fastest paced rollercoaster of an album I might have ever heard. Every sound is perfect. This shit is incredible. Second half ... read more
God I love being queer

Singer, songwriter, producer, geese screamer: Caroline Polachek. She’s been at this for a while, though you’d be forgiven if you thought she was a newer face, as this latest phase of her career feels entirely separated from what came before. She got her start in the indie pop duo Chairlift with Patrick Wimberly, and while they never had a huge hit single or album chart topper they still managed to garner a fairly decent following that’s only garnered ... read more
"I been knowing that Lil Yachty had that dawg in him. I've been listening to his collabs with Magdalena Bay since my first year with the Heat in 2010. You can ask my teammates, none of them knew him, I always knew he was up next." - Lebron James

This is what mainstream hip hop needs. Paying for incredible production without sacrificing your artistry.

With the name of the album, maybe Yachty is trying to inspire a new trend to be started in the confines of modern trap, or maybe he's ... read more

Edit: A good man must admit when he is wrong, and I will now admit, this album is NOT his best, and that still remains to be Nectar. Not that the album grew off in any way, I just needed to remind myself that of Nectar's superior qualities to Smithereens. So my bad for originally being misleading, and I hope the review is still enjoyable for you.

Joji’s Smithereens, is the quintessential ... read more
Yeah, I came.

The temptation to recap the already strong legacy of Black Midi at this point is palpable, since within the three albums the band has released, Black Midi have grown to be one of the strongest Experimental Rock bands out of the UK, which is a fucking FEAT considering what’s come out (check my last review for that, I'm a whore!). It’s tempting to say how the more technically impressive and almost Classic Prog tinged ‘Cavalcade’ launched the band into new ... read more
Bjork’s latest album is the ultimate magical journey. It shows what Art Pop can, and should try to achieve. It’s amazing to see her still pushing boundaries even today, after so many projects. She has created one of the most whimsical albums I’ve heard in a while.

The teasers showed really cool pieces, but the full image is pure joy and beauty. The tracks all flow so smoothly, and everything feels like a necessary part of the pacing. The lyrics are intense, cryptic, and ... read more
Jesus Christ it’s been almost two months.

Heyyyyyy, sorry guys 😬

Yeah, I know, it’s been a while since this cranky queer has written anything. What can my say, I’m at a weird period in my life and writing is time consuming and hard (for god’s sake I write these 1000+ word reviews on my phone). I made a deal with myself this year to not write unless I feel motivated, and suddenly I just now realized I haven’t written anything in two months, and I had already ... read more
A haunting serenity that is incredibly angelic yet so devilish, and so conscious yet deceased.

“If I died tomorrow, would I be leaving something worthwhile behind?”, is the question Quadeca asks of his third project, I Didn’t Mean To Haunt You, and with that question, without reasonable doubt can be answered. Yet this also teases the subject matter of the new LP, the theme of death, because in this universe, the artist is dead, and we’re now being given the everlasting ... read more
Poppin my Paramussy

Paramore, the Tennessee rock act most notable for being one of the most quintessential bands of the mid 2000’s pop-punk and emo scene has been at it for nearly TWENTY YEARS now. That’s weird to think about because I’ve always seen them as a very young band. I think a huge part of that is because, while other bands they came up with broke up, are no longer getting mainstream attention, or quite simply stopped making good music, Paramore still feels like a ... read more
Oh. Oh you weren’t joking.

I’m surprised we’re even still talking about Lil Yachty in 2023. The man was inescapable back in 2016 to the point that even me, someone who at that point in my life was very unfamiliar with trap was well aware of him and his controversial sound. At the time everything about Lil Yachty’s auto crooned cloud rap sound found on his “Lil Boat” mixtape was too foreign to me to enjoy, but as I’ve expanded the bubble of music I ... read more

Worst: We Cry Together

1. United in Grief - 10
[Lyrically just fantastic, production so unique and creates this wonderful experience. You can hear the emotion in his voice and the Piano at the end sets up for an insane album]

2. N95 - 9
[Damn this hits really hard, funny chorus sounds kind of like Baby Keem lol. Lyrically though this is great though]

So, I'm usually not one to share personal stuff, but I will make an exception just this time. I'm very emotional right now, so this might be an incomprehensible mess, if you don't want to deal with that, just skip this one. I am gay. I have supressed that fact for most of my life, but I have come to terms with it by now. Still, I have never told anyone about it. It's pretty lame to come out as a 20 year old and it's even lamer to come out to people who I've never met, never will ... read more
This album is beyond tragic. I went in not knowing what I was getting into, and wow this project is sad.

Every note, every space, every vocal is just strained and in pain. The only criticism I have to this project is it's so sad and in despair that I barely know what to do with it. It's so much for every track. I lost focus by the end due to how relentless this thing was.

Every song feels ambitious, well placed, and complete in its own way. It is a gorgeous listen that should not be written ... read more
This should be a story on why you should never judge Youtube Rappers, I'm just completely speechless, I don't know what to say, everything is perfect. It's a fantastic production album with an ambient and raw feel to it, fuck...

This sounds like grief, this sounds like everything is just going to its end and limit, it's haunting and creepy, it makes me scared but interested to see more. It makes me frightened but intrigued. It's something that you'd never expect someone like him to be doing. ... read more
Who the fuck was in charge of the mixing here?

Oh, that's right, the same guy who mixes Maroon 5 is mixing large rock crescendos

It's not like the writing is any better though. Take Boyfriends for example. Harry Styles takes it upon himself to mansplain what abusers are to women.

But besides that, the album is alright. Some bops here and there, and a decent ... read more
Before Caroline Polachek drops pop album of the year… anybody wanna admit they got a crush on me 🥺

What makes a good pop song? This is a question I find myself constantly pondering, especially when listening to most of the dog shit that populates the top of the Billboard charts. At its core, pop music is music at its most accessible- prioritizing catchiness and accessibility above all else. This is why 95% of mainstream pop artists suck monster cock. Very few artists strive to push ... read more
