Once again a recommendation from my friend Victoria after her and I went record store hunting and she picked up a vinyl of RTJ2, I have heeded her words and started my journey with RTJ with their debut. And let me say, holy fucking shit this is only like 33 minutes but it has like 90 minutes worth of bars. Front to back this entire record is just, watertight. Production from El-P is always fantastic, the quirky samples and hard hitting distorted beats compliment and accentuate both El-P and ... read more

One of the most creative and interesting modern hip-hop acts, Injury Reserve boasts not only 2 very strong MC's with flow, wit and charisma, but also boasts incredible production to the thanks of Parker Corey.

I feel it had a little bit of a weak opening with Koruna & Lime, but from GTFU ... read more

Yet the way Phil describes every. single. painful detail and piece of his pain, even down ... read more

Despite having listened to material far more challenging than this, the seminal LP from Neutral Milk Hotel took a long time to click for me, genuinely. I always found it good, but I was blind to anything else I coax out of it. Until recently, where everything from the abstract and kinetic instrumentation to the harrowingly honest yet beautiful lyrics just, hit. From the first part of King of Carrot Flowers all the way to the echoing steps of Jeff Magnum walking away on Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2, ... read more

One of the most absolutely despairing, depressing, and doom encroaching albums I have ever bore witness to. There were multiple points on this record where I had to stop and take a minute to compose myself because the emotion and palpable despair Dan brought on some of these songs just tore into my own depressive thoughts and conscience too heavily. Especially on cuts like I'm Going To Do It, where he literally sings that he's going to kill himself because he is everything he hates. Each song ... read more
