This is glorious. I discovered it today while reading my Another Green World 33 ⅓ book by Geeta Dayal. Apparently Brian Eno plays clarinet here (and may or may not have produced the record, though my sources conflict).

The concept behind the Portsmouth Sinfonia is that the collective, composed of art students, musicians, and the Renaissance type, is half-trained, and the vast majority—if not all the members—play instruments they are unfamiliar with. This makes for a discordant ... read more

Initial thoughts: The first 20 minutes had me really excited, but this album's quality really nosedives in the second half. These guys are better political commentators than they are musicians. Had they put as much effort into their music as they did the political theory essays they call lyrics, this would be one of my favorite albums. That first four-song run is incredible, though.

Final thoughts: Upon relistening, I'm liking this much more. There's still plenty to be desired from the ... read more

The lore is better than the project itself. It's cool that DSS was ahead of its time, but this isn't mind-blowing or anything. It's pretty solid plunderphonics, plain and simple. It may not be great, but it is certainly enjoyable. I could see myself putting this on for some background music while walking through the city. This is definitely a great introduction for the man who would eventually become JPEGMAFIA.

MINI REVIEW:

After about four listens, I’d give ‘Positions’ by Ariana Grande a 7/10.

It’s not incredibly consistent, but the tracks are sequenced very well, so it’s not as noticeable. The engineering is God-sent, and the production is pretty stunning all the way through (the sole exception being “west side”). The subject matter and themes are fantastically tackled too, leading to some really good hooks. The only hook that didn’t catch me was ... read more

REVIEW

Track 01: “Double-O-Nine”
This is just the isolated vocals of “Back In the USSR” on top of the original James Bond theme. They’re in two different keys at a different bpm, with different chord progressions and a terrible mix. I love it.

Track 02: “Hel Elter”
It’s “Helter Skelter,” but every other beat is missing, so the hook goes, “Hel Elter,” instead. I actually enjoy this. Obviously I love the original, ... read more

MINI REVIEW:

The new Pink Siifu album is a heavy-weight contender for the weirdest project I’ve heard this year, and I mean that with the highest praise.

Intense, impassioned and emotive, the walls of sound and the flames of the modern political climate close in as you listen. This is an inspiring, adventurous combination of hip-hop, punk and the avant-garde. Aesthetically, the LP feels more like a piece to be displayed in a modern art museum than an album. A lot of 'accepted' ... read more

About

Been listening to nonstop music for years without keeping track of most things, so I figured I'd start a catalogue of ratings here. Follow my Twitter for more music garbage, and I'll follow back if you're a music account.

Key:
100 - Perfect 10/10
95 - Strong 9 / Imperfect 10
90 - Solid 9
85 - Strong 8 / Light 9
80 - Solid 8
75 - Strong 7 / Light 8
70 - Solid 7

...And so on for 65 through 5 (5 being a Light 1/10).

0 - ‘Playdough Cooked In Tea’ by Me&me
