In spite of its repetitive lyrics and overused topics, 'Women in Music Pt. III' is a genuinely relatable record with a refreshing sound that's hard not to like.

In one of the previously released singles, we find one of the least interesting lyrics in the album: the cliché "I don't wanna give up on you", which is followed by "Are we gonna give it another try?" in the next track. Cohesive? Kinda. Original? Not at all. Moments like these are what stop me from giving ... read more

The critical acclaim that 'Rough and Rowdy Ways' has been getting made me raise my expectations of the LP. After listening to it a few times, I can't help but to feel underwhelmed. The record's mediocre production doesn't do justice to Dylan's poetic, sincere lyrics.

Perhaps one of the reasons why I'm giving it this score (and not a higher one) is that I'm measuring it in «Dylan standards». Let it be clear that, in my opinion, this is not his worst album but it's also far from ... read more

Not only is 'RTJ4' a relevant project, but it's also a brilliant one.

On top of it, they incorporate advertisements for a fictional TV show called 'Yankee and The Brave', in which El-P plays the character of Yankee, while ... read more

Lady Gaga's sixth studio album is a washed-up shame. Almost every song is forgettable and skippable, turning the entire LP into a regrettable listen.

First of all, it's not what she says it is. The American artist presents it as a conceptual project when, in reality, it lacks depth and cohesion in its theme. Here, we find Gaga at her worst: trying hard to serve her fans by "returning to her roots". The results are not satisfactory. In this LP, she sounds like a lackluster 2008-Gaga ... read more

Moses Sumney's second LP is almost a masterpiece. His voice and lyrics are at the forefront. The production is also enthralling. Listening to this album is a somewhat celestial experience. If you close your eyes and focus on the sound, you'll likely feel as if your soul is ascending.

'græ' is the type of record that obliges you to listen, that draws you in, that wraps your mind completely. It is sonically solid, albeit the first disc is more unpredictable and experimental than the ... read more
