This is a bit of a different review and i'd appreciate it if you gave this your patience for just two minutes. Just hit 50 followers so I thought i'd give my take on something that i've thought about regularly but never seen people talk about too often. This album title is perfect to link into the topic and this record just happens to be one of favourite albums of all time.

Sadness is necessary in life whether you want it to be or not. I highy doubt if anyone will get past the age of 18 and ... read more

A lot of artists have ideas of creating exciting, funky blues rock but not many can bring these ideas together with such precision and ferocity as is showcased throughout this record. It's a well-constructed, fun bunch of songs, some which are funkier and heavier than the others but the whole way through i felt a sense of danceability and grooviness embedded within the layers on each track. Overall a really cool album that provides a solid, enjoyable listen and the replayability value is high ... read more

This album is messy, uncohesive, inexpensive sounding yet…..there’s something about it. I really enjoy how Goldlink is bridging into UK hip-hop with some really spaced-out, trippy beats that I haven’t heard on many other records. This is a style that isn’t near perfection, far from it, but it’s a breath of fresh air in a slowly stagnating field. The vocals are muddy in parts and the mixing is so cheap and stupid sounding but I just love it as a project ... read more

KG change direction in the best possible way for this next instalment in their huge, ever-growing discography. They didn’t release any singles prior to the album drop but I think this has made the record that much better and fresher feeling as I’m going in without knowing what to expect….and I didn’t see this coming. The soundscapes range from dreamy synths to airy, oriental Chinese snippets of music that just fuse into this wonderfully hypnotic sound. At times, I felt ... read more

Poté is an underground artist who incorporates elements of hip-hop, vaporwave and EDM into his latest album. It’s a dark, groovy and very fulfilling record that sees him create and flesh out his own sound. He does this by blending his own mellow, yearning vocals into smooth electronic textures that soar and glide magnificently throughout. It’s an album that will avidly capture you throughout as the mix of styles keeps it interesting and progressive.

Makes sense that these tracks weren't included on the main album, all still good but the main album was concise and brilliantly balanced.

Oh it’s a nightmare to review, every listen is worse than the last. But it’s one of those disasters that I just kept thinking about and it’s so unique in its awfulness that for some reason I feel like I have to write about it to get it out of my system, if that makes sense

I’m gonna try to do my biggest review to date by then. It’s basically going to be a full length analysis of the failures on “Nostalgia Critic’s The Wall”, which imo is the worst album I’ve ever heard

Nah, no need to feel stupid lol. From NZ i'd say check out Wax Chattels (Noise Rock), Lizard Prom (Shoegaze), Unknown Mortal Orchestra (Neo-Psychedelia) and Split Enz (New Wave)!

I'd say while there is a disconnect in the US with UK Hip Hop (specifically Drill), I think that Slowthai specifically has done a good job crossing over to the US scene (regardless of if I like the album). Although I am from NZ, so most of that doesn't really affect my enjoyment of the music lol.
