Pinned Review

Lana Del Rey - Did you know that there's a tunnel under Ocean Blvd
One of the great shames of my life was that I, as a queer man, wasn't a fan of Lana Del Rey. I never disliked her, I always thought she was a phenomenal and unique vocalist and certainly one of our generation's great writers but I thought a lot of her music was very same-y and dry, I just didn't /get it/. Wow wow wow, boy, do I get it now though.

This album in one word feels 'cinematic' not in the way that is often thrown around that depicts great drama and false grandeur but really ... read more

Gabriels - Angels & Queens – Part I
I was in a record shop in Edinburgh at the start of 2022 when I originally heard Gabriels, the shopkeeper playing Bloodline over the PA and I immediately bought the record and vowed to keep an eye out for future projects which I did. I saved this to my library when it originally came out and never got around to listening to it until now and I'm split into 2 minds on if that's a good thing or not. On one hand, I've deprived myself of an absolutely phenomenal album for 6 months longer than ... read more
Demi Lovato - HOLY FVCK
I never really had much of an interest in listening to this album at all, I've not been a fan of much of the music they've released in recent years so I thought it was a pointless endeavor but I got bored today and decided to give it a listen, out of sheer curiosity more than anything. So I logged onto this website ready to rate this a solid 30-40 and boy, I'll happily eat my words.

This album isn't groundbreaking or revolutionary in any way but it's by far the most honest and vulnerable Demi ... read more

M83 - Fantasy
When standing on its own merit, Anthony Gonzalez has created a really phenomenal record with Fantasy. Few artists currently releasing music have such a way with synths and creating sonic environments, it seems almost effortless how he creates entire records that sound like they hold entire worlds in them.

With Fantasy he hasn't reinvented the wheel, he has retreated into his older sounds that are especially prominent in 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'. I think that this record is the version of ... read more

6LACK - Since I Have A Lover
First off I want to say that the album cover is spectacular.

This album just feels painfully wasteful. There are plenty of great little moments throughout the album but they're squandered in a tracklist that is double the length it should be and is filled with mediocrity. No song is GREAT from start to finish, there's a great verse here, a phenomenal bridge there & a few good choruses but there isn't a song on the album that from start to finish is great. They're not bad either, just ... read more

Nia Archives - Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall
I have next to no experience with jungle outwith maybe a track that I don't know playing in a club so I was left very surprised with how much I enjoyed this EP. The vocals are laced with that smooth, jazzy, r&b shine and the production is fun, bouncy, and of great quality. Even if you're not a jungle fan, like myself, I'd definitely say it's worth 17 minutes of your day.
