Beautifully enriched in sparkling synths and alluring vocals, <loveabout,> is an even more ambitious attempt at nailing the retro sound that is ever so underutilized in the current Korean musical landscape.

Sam Shepherd on the composition, London Symphony Orchestra on the performance, and Pharoah Sanders on the execution. Perhaps one would not fathom a partnership between the three acts, but indubitably, the value of the end product would be prodigious.

This album feels like a reunion with an old friend, except the old friend is far from the person you knew, and now with a totally refreshed character, yet still leaving interesting remnants that caused you to befriend them in the first place. Yes, yes, I gave it an 76 with the utmost bias, but aside from bias, this album is still a great pop record I ... read more

Hey, thanks for the message I appreciate it a lot, been busy with Uni so it's a little hard to update my page as frequently as I used to but I do plan to still plan to write when I can. You also got some really solid taste, cool to see you're enjoying the new Brockhampton record, Defo one of my favourites of the year so far.

Hey Eli, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :))

Just a list to make sure I listen to the albums I wanted to before and hoping that these records won't fade into the all-consuming void.
