A nice, introverted and worthwhile play-though by The Lumineers.
Despite it's folk slow burn, it's is a kind of album that requires multiple playthroughs, especially the album's motivation to Schultz after his near death car crash.
Through BRIGHTSIDE, theirs definitely some channelling of Bruce Springsteen on certain tracks.
But the biggest strength is the engineering, especially the piano chords, wonderfully crafted.
BRIGHTSIDE is quite short, but this certainly does reward you with this ... read more

If you enjoyed their debut album, their fun anthem grooves are intact which will certainly please their fans.
You got a whole of pot of variations, from emo-pop to instant high adrenaline to keeping their 70s grooves like their debut.
Lockdown effect? Not for them, Fickle Friends were in good spirits and this Are We Gonna Be Alright? clearly showed.
This I had a great time with and definitely will have high replay value in months to come.

What's wrong with a bit of fun? If you're honestly stumbled into The Wombats expecting Radiohead level of music, then I'm afraid you've barked up a wrong territory.
One look at the artwork and you're guaranteeing this will be a nostalgia polished circuit-board that still hasn't faltered and that's what makes The Wombats remain as the pioneer of Indie music to this day (If you don't believe me, go check their past festival experience).
I wouldn't say this their ground-breaking album that's going ... read more

Twin Atlantic's ambitious project Transparency really did pay off, despite losing a member since POWER.
But for one, it's safe to say Transparency is lightyears superior to their previous bland album POWER.
I will concede that their direction does pose strange choices that seemed vague. But judging by the scores, perhaps the album is too quirky for the many.
But to me, I had no problems with this playthrough. This is just a fine, bouncy album containing a couple of great bangers, but it was ... read more

It's been an entire decade since we last seen Spector's debut album released.
Now, 6 years later since their last album sees Spector jump back into past and towards an uncertain future.
Yes, that narrative is rather repetitive (Especially when many artists have delved into this narrative since 2020) on Now or Whenever which deals with current anxieties and depression (I think the artwork very much translate that pretty nicely), but to take optimism to make up for lost time... It's 2022 and ... read more

Hey!!!! So today I had an idea to make a very fun list on this amazing website that I'm addicted to. So... my goal is to make a huge RAINBOW🌈list, so you get to choose an album that you like that has an specific color, it can be literally any album but the majority of the cover has to be of the chosen color. So I'm gonna start by choosing one of my fav albums which has the color: RED πŸ”΄

Send me a color and an album that you like, If you want to write something you like album this album feel free to do it!
Or you can just send the name and the color.

check the live update here all the time:
