I'm almost at a loss for words with this one. I was expecting some outlandish sounds based off the singles, but Injury Reserve presented me with far more than I ever imagined was humanly possible.

I felt a great many things listening to this unbelievable album. I felt a similar excitement as when I first heard The Money Store; the sense of a group pushing the envelope of a genre far beyond the realm of the current tradition, and paving the way for new horizons within modern music. Equally to ... read more

Lux is quite simply some of the most sublime ambient music to come out in recent memory. A combination of roaring drones, haunting synths, and a chillingly beautiful soundscape make this one of the most beautiful albums of the year. It's staggering just how much power Approaching Mountains conveys through his drones alone. It shows just how effective simplicity can be within music.

The fact that he's currently only at 50 or so monthly listeners on Spotify is a crying shame. Do yourself a ... read more

Blown out beats, eccentric vocal inflections, and relentlessly catchy melodies? This is just the Florida version of Whole Lotta Red.

Favorite tracks: Morning Mudd, Got Rich, Lët ya know, Stayëd tha same, Gët Busy, Swerved It, Ya Ya, U could tëll, Hëy, Kant ... read more

The Melodic Blue is an admirable mess with stunning highlights, baffling low points, and good intentions.

Baby Keem has consistently been proving himself as one of the most promising young figures in the modern rap landscape, coming out with one of the more distinct trap projects in recent memory, quality singles being dropped, and even backing from Kendrick Lamar's new pglang outfit. All this led me to be excited for a debut record that builds off the immense enthusiasm and promise that ... read more

I was very skeptical going into this project, given my lack of experience with this genre, but when my friend forced me to listen to it at gunpoint, I realized it was actually very good. It turns out that Nanahira is just the Japanese version of Weiland, meaning that I'm contractually obligated to enjoy her music.
The song Ruthless comma Queen of Flowers is easily among the best tracks of the year may just be the best thing drake has ever made. ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time...

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hello, namaste🙏🏻, loved your reviews and followed you. My 2nd conceptual EP 'Marine Affairs' has been just released and I will request you from my heart to check it once.

Your review means a lot. It's a very novice attempt and I am learning, so I will request you to put a very honest review off course. Hope you are in safest of condition in this very hard times. If you do, it will make my day. Thanks in advance for your precious time. ✨🙏🏻
