No, Lou! When everyone praised Legendary Hearts and said they loved it, they didn't mean they wanted you to go full new wave. NEVER go full new wave!

Unfortunately, just like most other admirable classic rock artist, the '80s got to Mr. Reed, compelling him to make an unwanted new wave album. Honestly, you'd have a hard time finding someone who thinks that this is Lou at his best, but you'd also have just as hard a time trying to find someone saying that this is Lou at his worst. This album is ... read more

After a very rough couple of years, Mr. Dylan completes his return to his roots and makes one of the greatest albums in his career and easily the best break-up record of all time.

Sure, this album doesn't show any huge creative progressions on Dylan's side. It's still a very simple folk rock sound that relies heavily on the lyrical content to carry it through, but when that lyrical content is as emotional, as passionate, and as downright heartbreaking as this, and the otherwise fairly ... read more

Came for meme, stayed for a genuinely interesting Merzbow album.

Before going into this, I was preparing for the absolute worst. I mean, it's early '80s Merzbow, of course it's gonna be utter trash that's going to destroy my ears, right? Well, no. This album gave me something I really didn't expect, being more lo-fi than usual when it comes to Merzbow. Dare I say even Merzbow at his most accessible. But this album, to me, is one of his most interesting. It has this odd lo-fi industrial sound ... read more

I really didn't know what to expect going into this record, but I'm definitely glad I got around to listening to it. Although this isn't the kind of music I would usually listen to, I actually found it to be a really pleasant experience.

I think that Chaotic Mind is incredibly impressive seeing as it is a debut album that was made on GarageBand. For a first effort, there are definitely worse things out there, and Flamingooooo definitely shows their potential, especially with those ambient ... read more

I have finally returned, and I decided that the first thing I'm gonna do is remind everyone that Lou Reed was a fucking amazing musician that deserves so much more attention here. If you put aside his work with The Velvet Underground which (understandably) overshines his solo stuff in popularity, you can see that not much of his work gets the spotlight as much as they should. When you're just looking at his solo albums, you can see that the acknowledgement only goes to, what, four albums? Two ... read more

Hey, I have a song out! When you have the chance to, give it a listen. Haven't added it to AOTY yet, so here the YouTube music video link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5a0jTc9S10

I wrote this song and filmed the video while in quarantine. Took many inspirations from Chinese folk and alt-country. The concept of the video and song, I'll leave as a surprise (no spoilers of course), plus it's up to interpretation. Hope I can cheer some people up and get everyone together in these uncertain times, enjoy!

if you had to choose a live performance of a song that's better than the original studio recording, what would it be? it can either be something youve experienced yourself or something from an official live album (cough cough its for a list)
