It's not my favorite Pink Floyd album, but you don't see me making a full-length fucking parody album on why it's "fake-deep" or "shite" or whatever you want to call it.

As a standalone album, The Wall falls somewhat short, in my opinion, not so much in its concept but more in certain tracks not falling as well upon my ears as I would have liked. Inside of the context of Pink Floyd's discography, where it lands is pretty interesting as it's far more long-drawn than almost ... read more

People keep comparing this to Weezer when honestly it feels a lot more like POST-era Jeff Rosenstock mixed with Pavement if Stephen Malkmus was really fucking sad all the time. I've only chanced upon some of Billy Cobb's EPs from last year but none of them had songwriting or riffs as hard-hitting and standout as on the Bear Album.

Favorite tracks: It Takes Two to Tango, so What's That Guy Doing Here? , You'll Find Her Eventually, Zuzu's Pedals
Least Favorite: Lost Boys, Don't Bivouac Here

One of those rare occasions for a posthumous album where the features enhance rather than diminish the experience

I'm mad that I didn't get as much from this album that I would have liked to, the cover art for this is so lovely. Sonically Afrique Victime feels like an amorphous blob of blues riffs and oddly placed 80s drum machines that while not unpleasant to listen to wasn't really all that memorable or have many distinct moments across its runtime.

Sometimes the best Westside Gunn album ain't even a Westside Gunn album, it's Pray For Haiti by Mach-Hommy.

But seriously tho, this is great. Admittedly I haven't listened to any of his earlier work and only caught glimpses of Hommy on other underground hip hop albums, so I was honestly surprised with how solid Pray For Haiti is front to back. In his first project under the Griselda label, Mach proves he has as much lyrical prowess if not more so than any other members of the trio. Building ... read more

My first exposure to the B-52's was through a Veggietales movie at age 7, so obviously, this was bound to be great. Of all of the early post-punk bands, B-52's were most certainly the gaudiest, and I respect them for that. The band was very self-aware and knew how cheesy and ridiculous the music they were making was.

Favorite tracks: Dance This Mess Around, Rock Lobster (or Rock Monster for the educated), Lava
Least favorite: Planet Claire

I use a weighted scale for all my scores, how that works I'm not telling you cause I don't know either
constantly swiveling between shitposting and seriousness, so take what I say with a grain of salt

I guess I'm on RYM now? I've only imported 90s and some 70s albums ratings but if you want to follow me there too: https://rateyourmusic.com/~andiov1
