for my 500th review on this website, I thought I'd review something that's truly spectacular. This 2011 instrumental hip-hop release from the ever elusive Korean artist "ATIVAN COREA." This record is just so, astronomically ahead of its time and I still struggle to understand how someone managed to make this in 2011. The textures, the synth work, the sample flipping, it's all just so perfect here. The textures and sounds this album manages to create are just inexplicably fantastic and ... read more

 - In The Court of the Crimson King

After my now third listen to this album, I've come to appreciate it and what it's done for the scene of music. The soundscapes are beautiful on tracks like Epitaph and Moonchild, and when the album goes for a more rock oriented sound on the intro and outro it fucks hard. While the slower songs can seem to drag on and seem trite, as an overall experience Court of the Crimson King is really enjoyable.

Best songs: 21st Century Schizoid Man, Epitaph, The Court of the Crimson King

 - Preacher's Daughter

A story of trauma, scars both mental and physical, and the journey to recover that follows. I've taken quite an interest in Ethel Cain immediately when I was captivated by their EP "Inbred," her unique combination of pop influences on some of the more high energy songs come out into explosive bangers, and her gothic country aesthetic makes each slowcore song a densely layered journey through ambient synthetics, droning riffs, searing guitar leads, deep bass, ghastly acoustics, and ... read more
 - Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers
70
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers is Kendrick's most personal and introspective album yet, covering heavy topics that he usually does, but this album hits a lot closer to his personal life similar to GKMC. The production follows the poppier sound he brought in on Damn but still retains the jazzy roots of his earlier works with some of his most blatant story telling bluntly criticizing toxic masculinity, bigotry in his community, and the worship of musicians as gods. I'm admittedly not a huge ... read more
 - First Utterance
90
First Utterance is a wild ride of some of the most impressive Folk soundscapes I've heard to date with the strange ethereal other world sound of the guitars and fiddles working together with the angelic female vocals and contrasting with the shouted, sometimes emotionally charged, male vocals to make a truly beautiful atmospheric experience. The guitars float with their twangy folk sound, the fiddles sear trough the sonic mist made by the guitar, and the congas(?) add a certain sound that ... read more
 - SEVEN GIRLS' DISCORD
80
Elements of Math-Rock and J-Rock are ever present on this album, but with the peppy vocaloid vocals this entire EP has a sugary sweet feel to it especially when the backing synths or keys come in during some of the song's choruses. I'm just a sucker for sweet poppy vocals over crazy fun guitar riifs. It's a fun listen for sure, but there isn't much else I have to say about it.

Best songs: Ishiki no nedan, Rolling girl, Tenbin tokei denwa, Tokyo Joke, Reversible doll, Himitsu no nedan

I SKIMMED THAT DEADLINE!! With a personal favorite album. I need to find good bootlegs of just friends. Since Chloe goshdarn Burbank doesn't even have a wide release bootleg CD/vinyl, I guess I'll pull out the thanos meme, and do it myself
