recent + upcoming reviews

Lingua Ignota - Sinner Get Ready
'Sinner Get Ready' is filled up with flawless poetry, almost flawless production, and a whole dark Pennsylvania-based universe presented with such a seamless theatricality. A strong candidate for album of the year.
Foxing - Draw Down the Moon
'Draw Down the Moon' is probably one of the MEHest records of the year. There are a lot of things that could have been done better, but nothing is really bad; I enjoyed some moments, but nothing is really good either; most of the album is unoriginal, but never in an obscene way... In one word: MEH.
Lorde - Solar Power
Finally, four years after her outstanding sophomore album, 'Melodrama', Lorde is back.
Sadly, her never-disappointing poetry is often pulled down by an unoriginal and boring production. 'Solar Power' has a lot of sun, but also a deep lack in power.
Orla Gartland - Woman on the Internet
Irish singer-songwriter Orla Gartland's debut studio album is heartbreaking, introspective, brutally self-deprecating, feminist, and even funny. Despite its flaws, presents Orla as a promising alternative pop artist.
Halsey - If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power
One year and a half after her 2020 album 'Manic', which I think was her level-up record, 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power' keeps all the strengths of her previous record, but all its weaknesses too.
CHVRCHES - Screen Violence
After their weak third album, 'Love Is Dead', Scottish band Chvrches recovers its personality in an intense, dramatic, nostalgic, and feminist fourth record. A highlight in 2021's synthpop.
Indigo De Souza - Any Shape You Take
The first few tracks of 'Any Shape You Take' sound formulaic and boring, but by the second half of the album, De Souza soars into bold vocals and a more diverse production.
