MGMT - Loss of Life
54
The title sounds fitting of the music. Listening to this whole thing was tiring. The songs were all slow and nothing stood out as memorable. It's like they were trying to make a psych-leaning glam rock album, but missing the soul to understand what they are going for. If the track list was more dynamic, then we could have gotten the better of the slow burners, rather than throw them all on one album. Production is a bit flat, with everything sounding clean yet not inspired or intriguing. This ... read more

I know Ye has a worthwhile impact on hip-hop and pop culture, but the Kanye hype seems like such dated interest. Kanye put his best foot forward in his 00s era, though I find most of those records cartoonish and watered-down hip-hop. Nothing deeper than that. So when Ye starts to feel himself as a renegade figure after the VMA fiasco, he starts to test his limits in his art. Hence the epic by name, but garbage by ears, 5th album MBDTF. And the dreadful collab with Hov that's mid, the mental ... read more
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
51
Right before my reviewing days, I was sifting through Metacritic's top rated albums from critics. Lo and behold, this hunk of love's deluxe edition in the high 90s. And I never heard of this album. I was shocked to see Oasis purportedly beloved by critics, but also stoked to see more worthy music from a decade defining act. This should not be as appraised as it is. When Oasis has a hit, it changes lives. Here, these songs are soooo annoying. I like Liam's vocal style, but when he's nasally ... read more
Sleater-Kinney - Little Rope
31
This is insultingly bland. How can a band with an unheard of winning streak from long ago fall off so hard into mediocrity? The overly produced post-punk grooves are so underwhelming and cheap. The vocals sound like campy pop music in lieu of an exhilarating band. Yes, they are older. So the bite of an early 20 year old just won't be there. But time and time again, people get to a certain age where time slips by from under their feet. And without knowing it happened, they subconsciously fall ... read more
The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
79
A breakthrough moment for Corgan and the Pumps. The fact that a band can create a 2 hour, 28 song collection is insane. I sound like a child never thinking such a possibility could happen, but no one can deny the consistency of all these songs. I wouldn’t consider Mellon Collie ‘ambitious’, since these songs are quite standard in bite-sized listens. They aren’t doing anything revolutionary, just writing and recording direct and concise songs. That hit pretty hard. The ... read more
