Unquestionably the most colossal, deafening and highest-caliber authentic drone metal to have ever been produced. In this record, Sunn O))) brings a huge variety of instrumentation to the table while still keeping a high level of authenticity when it comes to the genre and not delving into a billion other unrelated things. Everything feels right in place and everything from H. Guðnadóttir's vocals, to her cello, to the synths that were introduced and the rare occasions where a ... read more

Kanye West continues his deceitful Christian trend with a remarkably humdrum and dragged-out collection of sub-par gospel songs. Through its fatiguing 84 minutes of runtime, very few moments feel worthwhile, and it ends up feeling very erratic and unpolished. Not recommended.

As always with this band, there's really nothing too genius in there, but the sheer conviction this is delivered with and the attention for detail that this album brings to the table makes it not only their undeniable magnum opus, but also one of the best pop-rock LPs I've ever heard. The band's ability to transfer emotions is at a peak, and in this record, they touch to a lot of more intimate and touchy subjects, such as gender dysphoria and death, without ever falling into clichés or ... read more

After the death of post-rock scene in the second half of the 00's, it would have been difficult to predict that the 2010's would offer us some of the greatest pieces of art in the genre, with the return of great pioneers such as Swans, GY!BE and Sigur Rós giving us some of their most solid works. However, before all those bands made their comeback, indie post-rock band Her Name Is Calla gave us their second LP. As a beautiful work of dense chamber-inspired post-rock, it serves as an ... read more

The proof that blink-182 had the potential to not be a boring or uninteresting band. My opinion on this hasn't changed in years of personal musical evolution. Some of the most catchy pop-punk songs I've ever heard. Very underappreciated.

Indeed an important and eye-opening premise for a 2019 picture, and it'll surely be remembered as one of Bong's best a few years ahead due to that very contingency. Technical aspects such as cinematography notwithstanding (which is too polished aesthetically, but not often very expressive frame-wise), it could be said that the film struggles with its highly escalating second half, as it could use a whole lot of subtlety for hopefully better results. The same as always with this director, to be honest. Still, it is definitely a worthwhile watch, and valid for the discussion it warrants, if not for the artistic statement itself.
