review of Tierra Whack - Unemployed
"Totally understand why you wouldn't like Clones because the chorus is so obnoxious but that's kinda the same reason I like it, so much character and the verses are amazing. Clones > Only Child > Unemployed > Gloria > Wasteland for me, maybe I need to give Wasteland a few more listens though"
review of James Blake - Assume Form
"^ Twas a shame because there were a lot of good songs on The Colour In Everything, as a 12 track album probably on a similar caliber to this IMO. "
review of Vince Staples - FM!
"Y'know, I'm still not sure if uploading as an LP instead of an EP actually does change exposure or listening figures, Bad Witch is a hard one to gauge since it was never gonna be that sticky due to its less commercial sound. I imagine he has access to information we don't. "
review of Kid Cudi - Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven
"I do actually enjoy a few tracks - Judgemental Cunt and the last two tracks - first two tracks are listenable too. Definitely more misses than hits for me but I have to admire the insanity of it a little, more so than an album which is generic filler from front to back. "
review of Brockhampton - iridescence
"Idk they have reinvented themselves and still made something compelling, what are you looking for from Brockhampton at this stage? Genuine question, just that in order to progress from the saturation trilogy I feel like this kind of reinvention was not only necessary but actually very much necessary. Guess having so many members can be a blessing in some ways and a roadblock in others"
review of Paramore - After Laughter
"Feels like you're saying 'experimental persona' in a derogatory way, as if making experimental music should be frowned upon when it's this quality that innovates the otherwise claustrophobic music industry. Don't know about good as fuck, perhaps bland af. "
review of Algiers - The Underside of Power
"I agree, even without the lyrics the album is saturated in atmosphere and intricacies - I got Joy Division vibes. I can't even understand what the singer is saying in Walk Like a Panther (although the title kinda gives the theme away) but his voice itself is used as a powerful instrument. I also like the instrumental tracks, as you mention I think many bands focus too much around the singer whereas Algiers have produced something that feels more organic and unpredictable. "
review of Linkin Park - One More Light
"The idea of rating on a 100 point is redundant anyway. No one's mood can consistently rank different types of music of different qualities on a 100 point scale with complete accuracy. It only seems appealing because Pitchfork are pretentious enough to rate in this way. "
review of Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
"Sometime as an artist art comes at u fast, and i believe he made this album like a mixtape n the process hearing the random shoutouts the album display by the dj. Thats what i think he was going for. Its supposed to b straight n your face. He made it commercial like a typical mainstream album while keeping the weirdness in ratchet in the music. He also dumb down the lyrics to put his message straight forward with the listener we he goes into his religious beliefs, and frustrations, and questions"
review of Depeche Mode - Spirit
"They have a huge career, do not just judge them for their new material. If you haven't listened I recommend Music For The Masses, Violator & Black Celebration"
review of Stormzy - Gang Signs & Prayer
"I can see what you're saying on the direction side of things. He has two distinct themes but they don't really fuse well together. Probably should have made this into a double album to create a better flow. "
