Cryalot - Icarus

NO NUANCE REVIEW

Some good ideas and a solid foundation, but it doesn’t really come together to anything better than that foundation. But, that’s to be expected from a debut EP - Sarah might be an experienced musician but this is still the beginning of a brand new project. Looking forward to see how Cryalot moves forward

JID - The Forever Story

NO NUANCE REVIEW

Imagine you’re me. It’s Thursday, August 25th, 2022. One of the most critically acclaimed new school rappers, JID, is about to release his next album. You checked out his last album when it originally released and loved it. It’s been four long years since then, he’s clearly put his time into his next release, and judging from his handful of features he’s been on since his last album, the chances of him disappointing are really slim. There is a ... read more

NO NUANCE REVIEW

If you can’t tell from my reviews, I don’t really care for this specific brand of pop-punk, but Demi’s really to sell it through a) actually being a really great singer and b) being able to be vulnerable and open about their issues which helps me connect to what she’s singing. If they had some better production that wasn’t so sterile I could see her making something great one day

Muse - Will of the People

I have been dreading the release of this album.

I hate to say that, because Muse is one of my favorite bands. Hell, they were my original favorite band. As I explained at the beginning of my series on Muse (which is currently on pause, burnout’s a bitch, but I’m still planning on finishing), their run of albums during the 2000’s produced some of the most entertaining rock of that decade. I cannot say that for the 2010’s. “The 2nd Law” was an inconsistent ... read more

Do I even need to give context to who Beyoncé is? It’s Beyoncé. Have you been living under a rock?

Okay, it’s been a few years since she’s released anything, we might need a refresher. After making huge waves in the late 90’s and early 2000’s in girl group Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé developed a god like status in the mid to late 2000’s with her first four solo albums, holding a grip on the public in a way that we don’t often ... read more

NO NUANCE REVIEW

This sucks. This is an underwritten, uninteresting, and derivative album. But I don’t really blame Tate for how bad this came out. These are all problems most young and new artists face when they’re making their first pieces of work. The difference is, those artists don’t land a major label record deal after their first couple of songs and then release a debut album before they’ve figured out who they are as an artist. But RCA snagged her up because she ... read more

Examining: Muse
Part 4 - Black Holes & Revelations

Picking up from our last episode, Muse finally hit the big leagues with “Absolution”, and, naturally, in 2004 the band further promoted the album with the year long, international “Absolution” tour. The time spent touring laid the foundation for Muse’s current status as one of the best modern live bands and saw the band performing some of their biggest gigs to date up to that point. Shows were regularly ... read more

Beach Bunny - Emotional Creature

NO NUANCE REVIEW

It’s an enjoyable listen but not a very memorable one. I think it’s an entertaining half hour of decent indie pop, but with each track sounding incredibly similar to each other it doesn’t leave much of an impression.

Jack White - Entering Heaven Alive

NO NUANCE REVIEW

I think I appreciate this album more than I outright enjoy it. It’s interesting to see the duality of Jack and how multitalented his latest two albums have proven him to be, but am I going to be listening to much of this latest album a few months from now like I am with “Fear Of The Dawn”? Not really.

Rico Nasty - Las Ruinas

NO NUANCE REVIEW

The better tracks are great, the lesser tracks are fine. It’s another inconsistent project from her but overall I think it’s solid. I just wish she released something that was fully realized and great throughout its entirety.

Part 3 - Absolution

The progressive, psychedelic, gothic, classical reinterpretation of alt-rock found on “Origin of Symmetry” was beloved by fans and critics alike, and Muse would only see more success as they went on tour. Muse’s live skills hadn’t diminished in the slightest, and their headlining “Origin of Symmetry” tour saw them moving up from clubs and concert halls to higher slots in festivals and even arenas. The trio handled the ... read more

On Brad Taste's review of Muse - Will of the People
"Muse have always been a divisive band. I think it’s a step up over their last few albums, but this is not the album that will convert anyone that didn’t already like them; it’s flawed as hell and I wouldn’t blame anyone who thought this is one of the worst things put to tape. Muse sucks, I love them. Looking forward to watching your video review once it’s out!"

On Brad Taste's review of Muse - Kill or Be Killed
"Have to agree with @TehSniper_143, I’d be curious to see what you think of the early half of their discography. I’m biased because they were one of my first favorite bands growing up, but their run in the 2000’s is a lot more exciting, entertaining, and interesting than the 2010’s-now"
