black midi - Hellfire
100
black midi’s 3rd studio album “Hellfire” has been my most anticipated release of the year since its announcement. Following their 2019 debut “Schlagenheim”, an album so confident and dense that it led to so much hype for the (at the time) quartet as one of the lead groups in the new era experimental rock bands, but also led to questioning of the future of the band. WIth the announcement of their sophomore record 2021’s “Cavalcade” also came with ... read more

Future -  I NEVER LIKED YOU

Did he really say “I fucked her in her ass made her peepee” or am I tripping
Sachiko M, Toshimaru Nakamura & Otomo Yoshihide - Good Morning Good Night
20
I was fighting an Elden Ring boss while listening, and somehow that was the lesser annoying thing

Good Morning Good Night is something I only find anything good about conceptually, the idea of the genre of Onkyo is super intense and interesting, but just doesn't do anything for me personally, and as someone who rates music off their enjoyment of it mainly, this album does less than nothing for me. It's a pain to listen to, with me constantly having to adjust the volume so it wouldn't damage ... read more

Charli XCX - CRASH
60
Sadly, the album isn't the Crash I wanted it to be

Charli XCX, one of the most interesting pop artists of the modern day, having released some great projects including 2020's "how i'm feeling now", a fantastic project that fully represented the state of the world at the time. Charli was on a pretty big win streak with her having 3 very well received albums in a row, but the rollout of this new album had me worried. First of all the albums announcement date seemed like forever ago, ... read more

Kanye West - DONDA EXPERIENCE PERFORMANCE
NR
The first half was fine, but the second half is an utter trainwreck in every sense of the word. The sound was fucked up, mics weren't working, everyone sounded horrible, and everything that could've went wrong did. It's really entertaining to watch, but it's also just really sad and embarrassing seeing an artist of his cailiber have something this atrocious happen. Somehow Migos were the best part, and I can definitely see the outlines of a decent album, just not in its current state, Carti ... read more
Yard Act - The Overload
55
Squid from Wish

I guess Yard Act are a new Post Punk band with the current golden era of Post-Punk going on. Im just gonna get this outta the way, I went into this with open ears and an open mind, but all I can say is that I really don’t like this. Yard Act are what happen if you take a band like Squid, strip them of the things that make them unique, and force them to make an album. I find the vocals to be obnoxious as hell, the singer lacks charisma, the instrumentals are ... read more

Wow then how did you get into music, was it introduced to you by something or something
5mo
Wow I completely forgot about this comment sry for not answering, so if you weren't listening to r&b for that long then what were you listening to before it
7mo
Huh now your answer makes me wonder, do you value lyricism more or production or even just the voice? Oh and when did you start listening to r&b?
7mo
Appreciate the follow!

Interesting if you say the minimalism works well for the album then I can't really ask anything else significant about the album since the minimalism is what made me dislike the album not to say I don't like minimalism in general, but a lot of the tracks sound so minimalistic to the point where it sounds like a load of nothing or skeletal.

At least I now kinda understand why you like the album besides the vocals bcuz I still stand by the claim that the vocal performance can be a bit wonky, but I guess I was just not the target audience.

I just wonder though did the album click on first listen for you or did it take time for the album to click for you?

Production is pretty minimalistic if you ask me and vocals are okay to good I guess but I think saying it's divine is stretching it but I can see why you would say that.

Yo I really wanna know what makes Blonde by Frank Ocean so special cuz that album bores me to death for some reason other than Nights and Pink + White yet so many give it a 10/10
