"Listen, this is Lou's greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up." - David Bowie

Lou Reed's misunderstood masterpiece. Lulu hasn't even been out for a full decade yet, and already you can see this album on worst of all time lists. There hasn't been many albums released last decade that has been as panned, hated, and memed as Lulu. But does this album really deserve that?

There's obviously a multitude of ... read more

Good to see Loop Zoop have matured enough to become Dash.

Honestly not surprised, disappointed, or anything. Listening to this, I've been left completely emotionless. It's not like these guys have even done anything particularly interesting. They're just jumping from beloved classic rock band to beloved classic rock band one after the other and expecting people to suddenly warm up to them because they can imitate Rush just as well as they can imitate Zeppelin. It's not exciting, it's not ... read more

Zappa's most ambitious album, robbed of its rightful place amongst his major classics and forgotten thanks to it not releasing in full until after his death.

When I initially came across Läther, I have to admit, I groaned in frustration. I mean, Zappa's posthumous releases are enough of a slog as it is, with numerous box sets that, for some stupid, unjustifiable reason, I forced myself to sit through despite their ridiculous run times, and those that aren't bloated being throwaway demos ... read more

I see all this Islands slander, and I just have to shake my head. Clearly everyone is too scared to accept the true King Crimson masterpiece.

Gonna be honest, I wasn't planning on reviewing this just yet, but my internet has been shit all night, leaving me with nothing but whatever I own on vinyl to listen to, so I'm gonna just review this album that I've been meaning to rewrite for a long while now. So if this review ends up being shit, I may end up rewriting it yet again at some point, but ... read more

The fourth album from The Araby Bazaar, this time with a new guitarist, definitely feels like a perfection of their indie rock sound.

More than any other album they've released so far, this album feels a lot fuller, which is most likely thanks to the new guitarist. Right from the opener, I just found myself being captivated by the energy of this thing much quicker than any of their other albums. And even though I've loved every record that I've heard so far, and I'd probably describe all of ... read more

Music fans shocked as beloved rock group, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, release the second part of a double album and it predictably sounds like the second part of a double album.

Honestly, no idea what y'all were expecting here. I mean, I know that part of King Gizz's is that they are that one band that you could never really predict what they'd do next, and them doing exactly what you knew they would do can be disappointing, but goddamn, this really isn't that bad. Actually, it's far ... read more

Hello. What is your favourite album to listen to when intoxicated (for a list)

Ahh gotcha.

Aw, you should maybe eventually get one. Makes it easier if people need to discuss something with you in private.

Do you have a discord I can add?
