Pinned Review

Danny Brown - Quaranta
Chinese Mike would be proud.

‘Quaranta’ is the latest studio album from eccentric hip hop artist Danny Brown, and it’s been a long time coming, to say the least. The record has been teased now since 2021, and the mystery on when, or if, we would ever get this album was beginning to mount. With Brown collaborating with fellow rapper and producer JPEGMAFIA earlier in the year on ‘SCARING THE HOES’, it felt like 2023 may come and go without word on the new solo ... read more

The Mothers of Invention - Burnt Weeny Sandwich
‘Burnt Weeny Sandwich’ is actually my introduction to Frank Zappa’s music. I’m fully aware this probably isn’t the best place to start, but oh well! About half of this runtime is taken by the wild live recording of Little House I Used to Live In, who’s jazz instrumentals feel like they could fit nicely into the soundtrack for an uncanny version of Mario Kart. However, much of this album feels a little aimless, almost like it’s sounding bad for the sake ... read more
James Taylor - Sweet Baby James
'Sweet Baby James' is an excellent blend of folk, country and blues. The songwriting is simple and easy, and James Taylors voice is silky smooth. Not to mention the song Fire and Rain is a classic, this record makes for some sweet listening.
Van Morrison - Moondance
One of the best feel good records I've heard in a long while. Van Morrison's voice is so distinguishable, his performances on this are strong throughout. The first two tracks on this too, And It Stoned Me and Moondance, are essential, timeless listening.
Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
It could be argued that the self-titled debut of Black Sabbath is one of the most influential records of all time. This has a weighted sense of doom and darkness that was never heard before, and it rocks.
Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs
The debut record from ex-Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett truly plods along. This feels more like a poorly worked Beatles impersonation than anything else. At its best, the vocals are sub-par, and at its worst like on the track If It's in You, they're awful. Perhaps I'm missing something greater, but I'm not all that impressed at the moment.

Surely his ex-band won't go on to do much.
