He'll never top this. This album encompasses everything about Odd Future, the culture Tyler created and influenced and his style of music.

You know, I actually really appreciate this new musical direction from Drake. It's definitely a much-needed change of pace from the mostly boring and substanceless material that he has been putting out for, what, 6 years? Now that's not to say that some of the stuff here isn't boring and substanceless, too, but it's certainly not as bad as his previous album, "Certified Lover Boy". Essentially, what you get here is Drake singing over very, very simple "house" beats. I can't ... read more

In this mesmerizing 10 minute, mostly ambient extended version of the intro to her newest album "Pang", Caroline Polachek fully fleshes out her artistic vision for this masterpiece, incorporating hypnotic hums, looping lyrics and instrumental layering to do so. Vocally performed to perfection, this mix surprisingly outshines a bulk of the material on the actual record it pulls from.

Despite me not being too fond of a bulk of this album (read: Everything after Too Dead Inside), this album represents an interesting shift in sound and aesthetic for Yeule that I appreciate a ton. It's almost as if the ending of their previous work "Serotonin II" was a sign of what was to come with this release. If you haven't heard the track Veil of Darkness, essentially it starts out with an extremely beautiful and soft melody which is abruptly juxtaposed with a section of grinding ... read more

New rating system! Now using tens (70, 80, 90,etc) and 5s / 9s (75, 79, 85, etc). This will help me rate more albums easier! Some albums may have any number in the ones column (92, 94, 97, etc)

I definitely need to work on giving albums a bit more time and not giving a score after a few listens and changing it. I don't do that often, thankfully, but from now on I will be sure about my score and reviews before posting
