I've been waiting for Vices for years. Literal years. After all the delays, all the cancelled tracks, all the confusion and after all the disappointment, I'm in love. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Weiland has been a massive part of my life. His self-titled project, as straightforward as it might be, is up there with my all time favorites, and his music helped me get through a ton of rough patches. As corny as it sounds, waiting for Vices has always been something that keeps me ... read more

It's a shame, with a cover as vibrant and striking as that, I went into Palaces expecting musical fireworks, only to be met with a largely middling, unadventurous experience with brief flashes of brilliance.

I really rock with Flume's music. I've only heard a few tracks here and there, but I've consistently been impressed with his sound. I think he stands out in a big way from the overwhelming sea of faceless homogenous mainstream electronic producers with his glitchier, more dynamic sound, ... read more

Following the masterful space odyssey that is Cosmogramma, Flylo dropped this goopy gloppy little collection of beeps and bloops, which may not share in Cosmogramma's conceptual ambition, but makes up for it with just how damn fun it is!

The tracks here are just so immediate and playful that I can't help but get lost in them! Kill Your Co-workers is easily up there with Flylo's best songs with just how unbelievably catchy it is, Time Vampires is the project's most spaced-out and atmospheric ... read more

 - Un Verano Sin Ti

I like some of the Bad Bunny songs, but what the hell does he know about making a 23 track album?

Un Verano Sin Ti is a fun reggaetón album with great personality, an inviting vibe, and quality production, but it's unfortunately dragged down from being truly great by all too familiar "way too long" disease that's been plaguing modern releases for years now.

I think it's a testament to Bad Bunny's talent as an artist that an album this bloated with over 20 songs and clocking ... read more

With Los Angeles, Flying Lotus turns into a well-oiled beat-making machine, crafting his first truly great project.

This thing just flooooooows, dude. Each track transitions into another seamlessly, and the sort of spacious trippy vibe is infectious. The level of cohesion on this thing is crazy, and the individual tracks are some of the best Flylo has made yet. They're far more dynamic, multilayered, and unpredictable, and the fact they all pair together so well adds that extra bit of impact ... read more

 - The Life of Pablo
100
The Life of Pablo is one of those rare albums that come once in a lifetime. It's a miraculous blend of infectious pop sensibilities, bold, experimental edge, and pure insanity that not only stands at the heights of 2010s pop rap but offers a deeply personal image of the troubled artist behind it.

The lead-up to this album was almost more insane than the album itself. It was touted by Kanye as a life-changing mastepiece, he put it through numerous name changes, took over 500 days (531 to be ... read more
