"When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hangups...I want to speak to their souls."

53 years ago today, John Coltrane took his very last breath on a hospital bed and departed from our mortal plane following a long, arduous fight with liver cancer. No man truly dies until he is forgotten. One of the greatest saxophonists to have ever lived, his music lives among us, influenced and ... read more

The latest from this Belgian drone metal band is a deviation from their previous body of work, Éons, as this limited LP is instead a live reworking of their first original 'Conference of the Stars' arrangement, substituting the improvisational jazz oeuvre with a psychedelic rock mix, and a length increased by over threefold. As its standalone reinterpretation of one of the group's earliest outputs, it recognizably serves as both a faithful rendition and an aesthetic downgrade. This is ... read more

If this anime was part of your childhood, then congratulations! We are now best friends. Quite baffling to now know Japanese free-jazz pianist Masahiko Sato composed this. To put this absurdity into perspective, imagine Cecil Taylor composing the music of Barney & Friends.

You either get it or you don't. Lyrics are great. I like that line about the Moses. Vocals are really powerful and honest. Instrumentation is sometimes beautiful or hard-hitting. Line distribution is questionable. Personally, I would've preferred YG give Jisoo or Wing Wong more lines, but I digress. Definitely going into my Walmart shopping list. Blackpink is the Revolution. xoxo

"Sometimes I feel like I can't go on like this forever. Days pass and nothing happens, and I feel so alone. In my heart, I seem to be waiting for something."

808s, one of Kanye's finest achievements, fascinates me. It fascinates me, amazes me beyond belief how artists, pushed to or far beyond their breaking point, can turn a moment of pure anguish, despair and unbearable pain into something beautiful to share with the world. A masterpiece that may touch the hearts of millions and ... read more

The kind of album I'd personally only imagine turning on if I was some angsty preteen after slapping my mom, locking myself in the bathroom and draining her top-quality hair conditioning down the toilet, but otherwise, I'd rather take my chances with the 'nanny' music they play at my doctors' waiting room. On a very lucky day, they play some Otis Redding.

Utterly boring, painfully conceived, almost delusional and unlikeable set of generic indie pop and R&B tracks you've heard before, done ... read more

What is your favorite album from each year, 2001-2021

That's right, although it's always potentially subject to change, I do find Batagov's reading to maybe not be the most attractive (that medal would go to Osborne's luxurious and chrome-plated interpretation) but for me, if I want to hear Twenty Visions in fine print detail and dramatic expression I go to Batagov. It's vastly enveloping and extremely exhausting but it's a visionary statement on the work and is also really quite ideal for following along with the score. I admire that you prefer Loriod's and while I greatly appreciate hers and Laurent Aimard's perspective (both in the same ballpark) I find the pace to be too quick, which ultimately substitutes emotional impact for technical proficiency. That's the beauty of the work though in that it's equally versatile from both angles.

I really liked your point about the abuse of words like "pretentious", "ostentatious" or "Snobby". Lately, I've come to find terms like these to become something equivalent to thought-terminating cliches. They've almost become meaningless words to shut down any meaningful discourse (I say almost because I still think a word like these have their place in artistic discussion but not in the way people on this site use it. Folks here butcher the hell out of the word).

It's one of the reasons why I never incorporate philosophy and/or theology into my reviews even when I think it would be cool to do so. It's hard to do that without coming off pretentious to a good deal of people. It's honestly a frustrating endeavor.

I come here to have a good time myself, and I just make a bunch of half-assed internet jokes for the sake of it, but man, I have fun doing so, so I don't really mind.

If I had to make it clear as to what I meant, I mean, what people see it as is "oh, mr. classical inglume picks on people for not liking his favorite album", when your proper statement was more of "I enjoy this album over these features, it's alright if you don't but I just wanted to voice my opinion on it's quality". I feel like they just percieve you as reluctant towards friendly discussion, and that's all. I feel like if you derive a way to sort that out people wouldn't have an angle against you, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. I think it was just a little issue with the way your statement was packaged that drew ire, not your intentions. I feel like the friendly side of you that I've seen a lot here is never really captured in all your recent comments, but I don't know if your going through something in real life, so please, take rest, stay safe and all of that, once again, I apologize.

Man, that sucks. I mean, I first intercepted you the same way they did, but I kinda get your point now, and I also get that your adoration for some of these works is genuine and from the heart, rather than anything else. I just feel like voicing opinions gets your flak around most of the musical world in general, that's why critics are looked down on, but being a music analyst yourself, take it in your stride honestly, you were once a teen as well and these people will grow into understanding your thoughs with time, I guess. I feel like every larger reviewer is subjected to talk about having a degree of ego, so it's common, I think you should just loosen it up and take it in your path, because you can't voice your opinions without dealing with your detractors. I love RYM's database, but I feel like I like this site for the opposite of that reason, some users are gems, and I converse with them frequently. I feel like maybe it's an issue with the way you worded your statements or somethi

Good luck with everything on here and off here. I don't mind any of this, because I'm the most irritating person i know myself, but I just wanted to try to dig at an attempt at making terms with you, because I don't know if all of the sites members are drifting apart further every day. <3

once again, sorry if ive been weird/condescending with my behaviour. Fuck all of this music shit, I don't know if your in the best state in general. But take care,rest well, I apologize for my actions, and I love your work on here. Don't let anyone detract you from being yourself, which was what I was trying to suggest with my comment replies, I don't know if things went haywire. Stay safe, all the best, and happy days to you.
