This is like the musical soundtrack to the word "meh", the literal definition of the score 50/100. It's enjoyable, but it's so aggressively generic and forgettable that it's never something I feel like I want to be listening to, it's just a decent listen. Plus, the second half is a decently large step down in quality IMO, and by the closer I found myself just wanting the album to end. While there is fun to be had with this album (particularly with some of the early songs), it's really ... read more

Honestly, I couldn't help but be really disappointed with this. I wanted to really like it given how excellent Rina's past work is (especially the RINA EP), but this just lacked a lot of the character which let her music stand out. The production wasn't bad, it had a nice fun disco-y feel with a strong bassline. The songwriting is really where this feels like a letdown though, since it gets really repetitive really fast especially since the hook is easily one of the worst I've ever heard from ... read more

Continuing to slowly make my way through all of these Drain Gang releases. I was a bit worried going into this one since I definitely preferred Bladee's early work (Gluee, Eversince) to his 2018 offerings (Red Light, ICEDANCER), and given this came out in 2019 I didn't have the highest of expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this: it turned out to be a solid album and made a much stronger impression on me than the likes of Red Light even with its far shorter length. It was ... read more

13LOOD 1N + 13LOOD OUT 13UMPZ IN THE WH1P

Honestly, this is probably my favourite Denzel Curry project to date. I've never really fallen head over heels for any of his old material: TA13OO was a good album but for each great song like PERCZ there were a few which dragged the album down a bit, and ZUU just didn't hit me at all largely thanks to his performances being so much less energetic. This EP brings the energy back full force: it's an unrelenting blast for all 12 minutes. The lyrics ... read more

I wanted to really like this album. It could have been so great. In fact, there are many moments where I'd say I can hear some great ideas. Especially the last song, "Don't Go Outside". That song contains basically everything I could have wanted this album to be: it has nice transitions between the pop parts and the metal, it's very satisfying in how layered the instrumental is, and it really gives you the impression that you're listening to a solid song that is assembled with care, ... read more
