Poster Girl by Zara Larsson is one of the albums of 2021.

Ever since the dawn of civilization, there has always been one integral element to the survival of humans, and to all living creatures. “Water”. From the long-haired, beardy hunters speeding across the forest, searching for a suitable meal for a family of four several unit years ago, to the mentally fatigued, headache-filled bloke who has to sit in their boxy room all day because of an invisible yet deadly being roaming the ... read more

L.W. - A record unreasonably belittled by expectations.

Like the experimentation King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard or not, you have to admit that they are a band that respects artistry. Continuous innovations like Nonagon Infinity, Flying Microtonal Banana, even when King Gizzard has a consistent sound, they have always been testing with different styles and subgenres, perhaps such aspect is the reason for attracting so many listeners. Which, is also probably why people turned their back ... read more

Narrating a journey filled with emotions can come in various deliveries, and these 4 musical acts depicted their stories of fear and darkness, in four different ways. In this 4-part series, I will be reviewing Atrocity Exhibition by Danny Brown, Flower Boy by Tyler, the Creator, Swimming by Mac Miller, and DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar, plus the depictions of their emotional traumas. So, without any delay, allow me to introduce you to the first chapter:

“Gotta arrive at 12.” I grabbed my umbrella, packed my keys, and left the house. It was a gloomy day, contrasting my emotions. I plugged my earphones, tucked in my jacket, and spun the record I always loved to play during rainy days.

In just 7 tracks, Chat-Shire is a project that brilliantly showcases IU’s ability to create music and provide excellent vocals, as her 2015 release cements her further into top diva status. (This is written in a state of frustration after the release of Celebrity)

With the disco revival being one of the major music norms of 2020, it would be a crime to dismiss the importance of the frontrunner of it all - Future Nostalgia, a brilliant disco-pop album, with its protagonist Dua Lipa rising to the top of the pop ranks.

My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.

IU, is one of my favorite musicians ever. God damn it, my profile picture is literally her. So, that being said, only my opinion matter here (just kidding). I never thought I would dislike an IU song, but oh well, I also never thought a virus could spread across the globe causing worldwide economic downturn and mass casualties, so I guess I can't really trust my senses.

This song is not the conventional kind of bad, e.g. the kind that ... read more

It's Logic's best work yet, even if it's not Logic here. Well, it's Logic but it's not Logic. Is that logical? *laughter rumbles*

Won't go in-depth here, but this mixtape is really good. Huge Quasimoto influences, with a lot of goofy character oozing from both some clever lines and some cringy (but good cringe) skits. Man really said "I just got the new Kid Cudi album illegally, I call that shit Scott free." A couple of songs perhaps dragged a little bit too long, but the ... read more

What can I say? It's a Baekhyun EP!

Seriously, Baekhyun just can't seem to miss! For those who don't know, Baekhyun is a member of the K-Pop group EXO, and while group activities are seemingly non-existent, Baekhyun's been working hard in the music factory. Aside from fellow member Kai, Baekhyun dropped a solo mini-album Delight on an earlier date, and I greatly enjoyed it! If year-end lists included EPs, it would've definitely ended up in the top 15 favorite records of 2020. Baekhyun's ... read more

ATTENTION! Off your head right now, what would you list as some of human existence’s finest moments? The control of fire? The discovery of the Americas? The invention of writing? Well, allow me to add one more to the list: The pure existence of What Is Love? by Twice.

Music, am I right? So frustrating at times, that just makes you wonder if you should probably go interact with people instead. Yet so amazing at times, that just makes you wonder if this is what your life was destined to, every decision you’ve made, every step you’ve taken, all wrapped up in this huge butterfly, that’s now present in your stomach, as the sound insinuates into your ears, a strong yet sensational breeze, an absolute fleeting experience that makes every awful or ... read more

Don’t worry ZAYN, I’m listening! I’m just not really enjoying it though. :(

Former One Direction member and celebrity crush of many, ZAYN Malik has come back with his third LP after a three-year break. While Mind Of Mine was not bad at all, Icarus Falls was generally considered as a big drop off, as although the 29-long tracklist might gain you more profit from Spotify streams, people don’t usually really want to sit through 90 minutes of music, let alone mediocre ... read more

Anime music? Mmmm, no thank you. Aminé's music, however? MmMm, yes please.

Aminé, currently 26 years old, is a rapper with great potential. He creates catchy hooks like a pop-rap artist, yet possesses the lyrical potential of a conscious rapper. Flashes of brilliance are shown in his previous works, with my personal favorites being Caroline and Sundays, yet, the problem separating him from greatness is the rest. Looking past the appealing singles, the rest is often a mixed bag. ... read more

Happy are those in love with this record.

I remember when I and my parents were having family dinners a couple years back, my dad would play some 70s to 80s cantopop songs, a bit of a nostalgic ride for the both of them if you will. Shirley Kwan was a musician both of them very respected, and Happy Are Those In Love was the album to spin with. It’s truly fascinating how my parents, usually calm and collected, would completely lose themselves in the unstoppable fun the music brings, with ... read more

On Charlise's review of The Monotrol Kid - What About the Finches
"Of course, the extent of boringness varies between each and other, so I can only say for myself. In my opinion, boringness would be a critique if I would rather listen to something else than the one I'm listening to right now, as @Toasterqueen12 has mentioned, however, only under 2 conditions: One, I have enough background on the genres/styles the music is aiming, and two, if the respect for the artistry is not enough. Like from the review, I agree that "boring" can be a lazy criticism and an easy dismissal from a reviewer standpoint, and hence I would have the thought processes mentioned just now to see if it's justified to call the music itself boring."
