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. I expected a grandiose delivery from the three brilliance through mighty showcases, and even with hindsight, ... read more

What can you really do with only 5 songs? Apparently, a lot. Remarkable and earnest, Sarah Kinsley's self-produced and written The King is an underrated and self-effacing pop record.

Despite its radiance, neo-soul is a genre at its crossroads. Despite its past excellence, from Tony! Toni! Toné! to Jill Scott, neo-soul desperately needs a strong shot in the arm. Derived from the demand ... read more

One of the most successful girl groups ever, it was clear from the release of More & More, that they were diving their heads straight into westernization. If picking up a Zara Larsson leftover instrumental as their title track ... read more

Hey, thanks for reaching out! I hope you're doing good as well.

Yeah I just haven't been as active on here because I've been working a lot lately at my new job. Being a sleepaway camp counselor really is no joke and I don't have a lot of time for stuff that I used to have a lot of time for, such as writing reviews. I'm still here from time to time, and I'll still listen to new releases when I get the chance, but for now I'm not as active and that's just how it be. Hope that clears things up!! :)
