ROLLING STONE #467

Really not feeling this one tbh. This is the 4th album from neo-soul crooner Maxwell, who I was not very familiar with before this listen.

ROLLING STONE #469

Wow, this is a cool one. The Frenchman Manu Chao really just created a pure work of art that reflects street culture and celebrates cultures of the world. Manu travelled to various places around South and Central America and recorded these tracks as he travelled. He even recorded sound bites and brief samples from these places that really add so much texture to the record.

Look at that album cover. This is the record that introduced the world to Cash Money Records and essentially established their place in the hip hop world. An important, influential album for sure, but listening to it in 2021, it doesn't feel all that special.

It is definitely an enjoyable project, with some funky production from Mannie Fresh and Juvenile doing his thing with his charisma and character really coming through. There is no doubt that modern rappers have taken ... read more

Ppl gonna hate Weezer just to hate Weezer, but this thing kinda slaps. The hooks are just stupid catchy and the string arrangements are gorgeous. There is a serving of that Cuomo cheesiness but I really am not going to deny that I enjoyed this quite a bit.

Hello there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!
