My Thoughts on DONDA livestream:

Overall, Donda has a lot of potential. The spacious production, gospel inspired chords, Donda vocal samples, and just overall a good display of Kanye’s ability to bring a lot of different talent together. Some of the songs here has a lot of potential to be worked on and polished to be solid Kanye tracks and some songs here need minimal work to be great tracks. However, there are also a few tracks on here that need so much work that Kanye might as well ... read more

On her sophomore studio album pop superstar Billie Eillish fails to prove much in terms of artistic, vocal, and stylistic evolution. Sure some of the more electronic inspired tracks like NDA and Oxytocin are enjoyable little tracks but much of the album is filled with unfinished tracks, poor vocals, and half-baked ideas that in perspective make her debut album seem much more like a finished product.

Sure the album isn't perfect and is honestly the studio album I personally felt wasn't their best. But fuck, a 77 is damn good. While some tracks in the beginning may have messed with the momentum and feel of the album, the later half of the album kicks it up. It sounds like a much more produced and grand sound compared to past albums and I like the way production suits the music though at times some songs feel a little overproduced and overdone even if it has that Brock charm. Overall, the ... read more

While Astroworld is undeniably better IMO and his magnum opus, Rodeo is the first true example of greatness from Travis Scott, one of the best to come out of the Trap era. Rodeo, especially in the first half, is an astounding statement on the state of hip hop and yet it makes its statement instrumentally instead of lyrically. This album may be rough around the edges but it makes perfect sense how the artist behind Astroworld had a great debut.

This album is simultaneously a very unique indie album and a very familiar one as well. On one hand, the production and composition of many of these songs are quite unique but the actual style and direction here was already tried and trued by 2002. This is album is great even if I don't rate as highly as some. The incorporation of acoustics with wide array of alternative sounds makes this a unique listen.

Wow what a masterpiece in ambient techno music. Listened to this bbn last night before bed and a bit more this morning. This is just a beautifully published tother album no doubt about it. The atmospheric synth pads used are some of the most beautiful sounding ones I have heard and the borderline lofi beats throughout this project dont take away from the vibe, instead they often add to it. It is a very sonically unique take on ambient music and I am super glad I checked this album out.

First impressions are key when it comes to albums. A good opener can really open your eyes and let the listener know what is in store for them, a bad opener, on the other hand, can put a bad taste in the listener's mouth and ruin the experience for them.

Which brings me to my question for my list: What is your favorite album opener of all time and why? (only choose one, and please give the artist, album, and song name)
