'LOYALTY' sees Trap experimenting with new styles while incorporating some of his trademark sounds that have fueled hits in the past. This project tends to come off as generic mainstream trap, which isn't the biggest issue for me as I enjoy the genre. However, what is an issue is Trap's enthusiastic deliveries scattered throughout. This issue doesn't affect every track on the project, but comes into conflict with Trap's modus operandi of abrasive 808's with high energy deliveries, completely ... read more

At first, I really enjoyed this project. The slower and more melodic sounds were hitting for me, reminding me of something akin to Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'. Through the duration of the listen, however, I started finding it more boring and uneventful. I loved the solely instrumental tracks, the psych influence, the soft vocals, and some of the lyrics. Although the style is varied throughout, those variations are slight, which can make it seem like you're listening to the same song 11 ... read more

With some hard-hitting bars over some lo-fi beats, Kota the Friend's 'Lyrics to GO, Vol. 2' is a solid project. However, 10 tracks laid out over 15 minutes leaves a lot to be desired. Although no track is bad, each is under two minutes long, which made it hard for me to get into any of them individually. Overall, this project is too short to make waves, but it's a great listen nonetheless.

What makes Punisher stand out is Bridgers heartfelt and soulful vocals over some great ambient production. Although a slower project, each track leads up to the final release on track 11. This project isn't my usual cup of tea, but I still found enjoyment out of it, and think that this is objectively good. Exciting for the entire duration, it seems as each track adds a layer of complexity, rewarding listeners who paid close attention.

First, I want to give credit where it's due; the songwriting and vocals are amazing on this project. However, it was a mixed bag for me. The chaotic nature of the songs either made them absolutely amazing or took the joy out of it for me. This is definitely something I'm going to have to come back to, as each song seems to expand on the rest, adding a new layer of depth with each listen.

What is your favourite album to listen to when intoxicated (for a list)

I definitely understand your pick! DSOTM is an excellent album and one of the very few that I rated 100 on AOTY. It's a really interesting journey that goes through a lot of twists and turns. I remember the first time I listened to it, I don't really remember the name of that weird electronic interlude that goes before ''A Great Gig in the Sky'', but I thought: ''What the hell, this is so fun!'' lol

Interesting pick! I haven’t heard this one yet but I’ll make sure to because I’m a pop-punk guy! I’d say my favorite album of all time is probably "Stargazing for Beginners" by Pale Seas. I didn’t really know under which metrics to base my choice but I’ll use the emotional impact it had on me and the time I spent listening to it! How about you?

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
