We rarely think of him when we talk about the most important Blues guitarists and influential people for the whole Pop/Rock generation, yet Freddie King (or Freddy King) deserves, without a doubt, much more esteem. Freddie King is a hybrid artist of the 60/70's, a cross between traditional blues and his more popular R&B side. He is often recognized for his simple and intuitive playing which has the specificity of being terribly effective. Freddie ... read more

Today we are going to pay tribute to a very talented artist, promised to a superb career, but unfortunately left too soon: the jazzman, composer and creative trumpeter Booker Little. What a gem, what a loss. Tragically disappeared in October 1961 because of Uremia, at the age of only 23, Booker Little embodies the first "examples" of the premature death of "modern" air arists. Although he never achieved during his lifetime a star ... read more

Still in the midst of the Blues revival, the year 1961 still shows some breathlessness compared to previous years. This is noticeable with the number of excellent Blues albums and singles in decline that year. Fortunately, there are a few exceptions, including the album Blues in My Bottle by Lightnin' Hopkins, another outstanding legend that we haven't yet had the opportunity to discuss in detail. Lightnin' Hopkins, known for his fantastic guitar playing ... read more

It's always fascinating to discuss and observe an individual's opinion when you're thinking about how you perceive and interpret art and entertainment in totally different ways. For example, you have the two extremes, on the one hand you have the individual who listens to the radio to hear the latest trend hit and on the other hand you have the art loving individual who spends his weekends and free time cultivating himself. Are you going to tell me that I'm ... read more

Hi there! Sorry for bothering you and for the shameless promotion, but I was wondering if you would take time out of your day to listen to some music I've made!

I made an electronic album about the end of the world, check out the AOTY page here:

I made an EP with a bunch of chill songs experimenting with music. Here is the AOTY page :):

Both are on my bandcamp page, and only the EP is on streaming services. Sorry for being annoying like this, I'd just love feedback on how to improve. I did this for my last album, and it really helped.

That may not have been the exact answer to your question, but I hope it was concise enough!

That's a really interesting way to approach the system! I also agree that no album is 100% perfect, just because there will always be something that is not done in the best way, whether that be lyrics, instrumentals, vocals, etc. Still, I have two different reasons why I will give a 100. The first one being that the album is something that I can listen to in its entirety and actively be engaged throughout the full experience. This means that every song has to be phenomenal and extremely well-crafted, as I get distracted quite easily. My most recent 100s, græ by Moses Sumney and Bloom by Beach House fall under this category. The second way an album can receive a 100 by me is that the album has a very strong emotional connection with me that will never be replaced by another album. I See You by The xx is a prime example of this, and I believe I stated in my review that it's not an objectively perfect album.

Even though nothing is perfect, it feels good giving 100s to albums I love.

As someone that has been keeping up with your reviews for a while now, is there any reason you haven't given any 100s? Do you not believe in the score are you just extremely picky? Just curious, thanks!
