 - By the Time I Get to Phoenix
100
Rest in Power, Jordan Alexander Groggs.

I’m honestly at a loss for words on what I just heard.

This album feels like I’m witnessing the remaining members of Injury Reserve traverse this digitized, post-apocalyptic hellscape as they confront the harsh realities that come with Groggs’ death. The overwhelming, abstract, and nightmarishly beautiful nature of this record invokes incredibly vivid imagery that has generated very raw and visceral emotions from myself. The only ... read more

 -  Honestly, Nevermind

Despite having very low expectations going into this album, I still somehow managed to be disappointed. The fact that Drake still manages to disappoint me after all of the garbage he’s put out over the years is genuinely astounding. A small part of me wanted to believe that Drake would do this house sound justice (no pun intended) but instead he comes through with some of the most tedious and uninspired takes on house music I’ve ever heard. I shouldn’t be too surprised ... read more
 - An Evening with Silk Sonic
93
Hoooooly fuck...this album really is something special. Every time I play it again it somehow gets better and better. Every single song on this album is just so well-crafted and memorable, which really shows just how mindful .Paak and Bruno were about making every song on here as great as it could possibly be. Even though it's only been a few days since this album's release, An Evening with Silk Sonic is already shaping up to be one of my personal favorite albums of all time.

 - Goblin
36
When revisiting the discography of an artist I enjoy, I usually have some renewed sense of excitement and appreciation for most of their projects. However, Goblin is a rare instance of a project that I was dreading to listen to again despite coming from an artist I enjoy. Admittedly, I had been putting off this review for a while due to how unpleasant of an experience my first experience with Goblin was. Unfortunately, as I expected, listening to Goblin once more wasn’t much ... read more
 - LP!
73
Original Score: 81

EDIT: LP! isn't quite as great as I initially thought it was, but it's still a solid record nonetheless. Definitely don't get as much out of this record as I do with Veteran or AMHAC though. Even though, in my opinion, it's Peggy's weakest album, it still has plenty of interesting qualities and effectively showcases Peggy's unique personality.

For the last few years, JPEGMAFIA has cemented himself as one of the most versatile and enigmatic figures in hip-hop. Ever since the ... read more

 - Punk
56
On Punk, Young Thug possesses the rare ability to always keep me engaged with his performances, but never to the extent where I find most of his individual songs memorable or worthy of replay value. There are definitely some solid tracks, but most of the songs on here were pretty middle-of-the-road and forgettable.

Favorite Tracks: Contagious, Peepin Out The Window, Rich Nigga Shit, Droppin Jewels, Fifth Day Dead, Hate The Game
Least Favorite Tracks: Livin It Up, Scoliosis, Icy Hot

Oh, I’m really glad!!!! Nichijou is still my favorite (or at least top 3) anime of all time, its unique stories and atmosphere are just my favorite, and I associate it with a great time in my life too :)

Really happy you enjoyed it :D

That’s understandable lol :) I’ve had to cut back on watching anime in general recently cause of school reasons, but I’m looking forward to getting back into it; really cool to talk to another person here about it 😎
Have fun watching!

Oh cool! I love getting anime interactions on this site too lol.
In terms of lighthearted anime: one of my favorite anime of all time is Nichijou, which, while being a bit weird, has some of the most wholesome and relaxingly lovely moments around :)
The show my AOTY username comes from (Cardcaptor Sakura) is pretty lighthearted, but also really long lol
If you're looking for relaxing, more slice-of-life anime, Yuru Camp, K-On, Flying Witch, and Aria the Natural are all lighthearted, fun stories :)
On the other hand, if you're looking for anime of non-slice-of-life genre that are still lighthearted, Bofuri (an isekai), Kase-san (lesbian romance), and Zombieland (Idols?) are pretty chill and light.
If you want any other recs, feel free to ask!!! thanks for this!!! <3
