Jockstrap - I Love You Jennifer B
100
I Love You Jennifer B manages to leap forward in the evolution of pop, boasting its experimental flourishment in ways music has never explored. It sows together abstract forms into otherworldly greater ones, surprisingly making a cohesive and beautifully diverse body of work. Singer Georgia Ellery and producer Taylor Skye present their hair-raising musical talent as musicians by constantly dipping into the avant-garde and the unknown. Jockstrap's pure originality speaks volumes, peering through ... read more

Caterina Barbieri - Spirit Exit
85
Progressive music. For as long as it's been around, it's fascinating to hear new takes on the progressive format. A sense of open-ended versatility, and a willingness to move forward. A feeling of being part of another one's journey, or rather a feeling of transcendence of themselves. What Caterina has presented to us, is a floating monolith. Alien to us, yet we still somehow can understand it. In the music, we are guided through a landscape of sorrow and loneliness. Perhaps the end of a great, ... read more
DJ Sabrina The Teenage DJ - Charmed
95
Dj Sabrina The Teenage Dj was intriguing upon first discovering her discography. Only first had I listened to her singles at the time, until I found "Charmed", arguably her greatest and most popular work. The 3-hour runtime was daunting, to say the least. However, upon making it through the project's entirety, I confidently declared it a work of raw beauty. An ambitious project filled to the brim with intricate and refined sample work and complex sounds, while also being a project ... read more
Charli XCX - how i'm feeling now
80
In 2020's "how I'm feeling now", Charlotte surfaces many of her ambitiously raw ideas and culminates them into something otherworldly and truly unique. Ever since my initial listen two years ago, it still delivers a striking new signature sound in club-pop. Charli demonstrates how bold you can be with your creativity, while also pushing the industry in striking new ways.

A glitch pop beast to behold. These fundamentally untamed areas of sound are tapped into fun and fascinating ways ... read more

SPELLLING - The Turning Wheel
95
Renditioned and mastered to mere perfection in the modern times. Whimsical and magical, it's a tale for the ears. dancing across the beautiful night sky in a graceful dance of abstractness. Spelling's newest LP is the most filmlike experience of the year, setting you for an exhibition for the unforeseen. She invites you for a gallop across the exquisite landscapes of progressive melodic modulation in a heart-tugging hour reserved for this new world.

Cabral's beautiful mind is unpeeled and ... read more

Tyler, The Creator - IGOR
95
One of the greatest modern works in hip-hop and R&B at large. A beautifully complete package of melodically and perfectly paced tracks from beginning to end. A fast-paced LP blending the lines between R&B and hip-hop effortlessly, seemingly creating something of its own, while also bending the rules when needed and succeeding past it.

Instrumentation is beautiful the whole way through. Tyler provides the production, ideas and emotions to fruition perfectly every listen. The struggles ... read more

hey jakco! to celebrate 555 followers i'm making my first community list and my question, if you'd like to participate, is this: what is your favorite project to study/work to?
6mo
Hey!! To celebrate me now having 400 albums rated and reviewed I'm gonna be putting together a community list and I of course need your help. It'd mean so much to me if you could help.

Whats a song that makes you have the feeling of ascending into a into another world or into space, a song that makes you feel like you have left your body and you are inside of the music. I'll start first! MY EYES off of Travis Scott's new album 100% does that for me.

Also feel free to give an explanation for your choice, Thank you!

*Albums/EPs are graded on a 5-point increment scale*

All of my scores and reviews are not influenced by public bias. All thoughts are decided before posting and projects are listened to thoroughly (some are revised).

Thank you :) πŸ–€
