Pinned Review

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯ A♯ ∞
100
Best experience is with the lights out, headphones and closed eyes. Love what I'm hearing.

Edit: 101/100 This is like the best thing to ever exist. Every sound is so beautifully dark. This album takes you to a dark dystopian post-apocalyptic world where everything around you is ruined and in shambles. Creates such amazing imagery and the spoken word in this, is incredible. You don't need too much to say a lot. I found myself returning to this album several times now and there is always ... read more

Dethcaper - DTCPR2
79
It's a pretty interesting EP you have here. I like the sound of these tracks, they feel very unique from each other and it's not bland or anything, there's a good amount of things to pay attention to. This EP has a great tone from start to end, it doesn't seem to lose its consistency even the track "Lonely Bunny" where it really kicks in with a lot more noise as it goes on. It's not anything too mindblowing, but it's a good release. So yeah, I like this, keep it up man! :D
Allie X - Girl With No Face
87
Oh my god...it's so good! First of all, excellent production, like whatever synths and crap is used for this, it's breathtaking. There's such a nice feel to these songs, it all feels so consistent, but not consistently boring, it's actually fun to listen to this album. The vocals are great, I like them a lot here. There's something that really captures her vocals for a lot of these songs, you can hear her really pushing it. The writing for these songs is great, but sometimes the lyrics get too ... read more
MGMT - Loss of Life
74
MGMT takes a way more different approach to their sound. Sounding more relaxed and less of that electronic sound or whatever they were doing. Even if I don't seem to enjoy this as much as some other albums of theirs, you have to appreciate their choices made during this. Because there is still a decent amount of tracks here that I like. There are some moments where the vocals don't quite grab my attention from the effects and how they sound, but in other times it is pleasing to hear. This isn't ... read more
meth. - SHAME
70
It's not bad, it is really heavy though, sometimes even too heavy. I do appreciate the effort, but I think things vocally get a little over the top or even just questionable. I wouldn't call this anything special, it's a pretty tough listen if you're not really into this kind of heavy music. Instrumentally though, it's got some kick to it. For the most part, whatever they are playing sounds great. Maybe sometimes I'm not as into some moments, but they still did a great job. For me though, it's ... read more
Daft Punk - Alive 2007
98
1000th rating...it has finally happened. And with that being said, I'm going to I guess review the beloved live Daft Punk album "Alive 2007". This should be fun.

"Robot Rock/ Oh Yeah" LUKAS GRAHAM!!!! Robot Rock is probably my favourite from the "Human After All" album and I can't actually tell if this is different from the studio album or not. Oh wait, are they combining songs together? If so, that's sick! Yeah, I see the vision now, this is actually really nice. ... read more

Heya there Eyeofdarkness! I have a new side project out right now called "DTCPR2". If you are interested to listen to strange dark ambient glitch electronica with touches of slowcore, I have it! :D If not, have a good day!

Hey :) I'm here to recommend a couple Turkish albums since you enjoyed Sezen Aksu's Sen Ağlama and I enjoyed reading your review. Feel free to pick whatever you find appealing. Don't feel pressured to listen to all of them :)

Hey EyeOfDarkness! To celebrate 500 followers I decided to put together my first community list from all of those who supported me along the way!

I wasn't sure what to do as pretty much everything has already been done, so I decided on this:

Imagine you're in an apocalypse, the whole world has gone to peril and you can only play one special song before everything perishes, what song are you picking and why? It doesn't need to be just one song, it can be a variety of songs if you can't choose just one.

I’ll compile everyone’s results over the next few days and I’ll let you know once the list is ready!

Thank you for your time!
