"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

There's no coming back from this one.

No, this isn't the worst album Yes have ever made. Truth be told, it's better than their last album, Heaven & Earth. But honestly, even though the best material here is much better than what was found there, there just isn't anything to this album that saves it from being categorized in the same tier. The thing is, at least with Heaven & Earth it felt like a classic band trying to sound hip and fresh. But here, it sounds like they haven't grown one ... read more

Y'know, Genesis aren't amongst my favourite artists out there, but their best material certainly ranks amongst my favourite in the entirety of prog. Albums like Foxtrot really signify absolutely everything that made me fall in love with this genre initially.

I've got to say, ever since I first heard Foxtrot months ago, I've been completely enamored by it. I seem to always find myself coming back, completely entranced by just how spectacular everything is. The talent, the instrumentation, the ... read more

It's been seven years since you released your last album - and that album was quite literally supposed to be your last album. It was your creative high, essentially your magnum opus, and it closed one of the most magnificent discographies in the entirety of rock. How the hell do you follow it up? King Crimson's idea was to embrace the flourishing new wave fad while bringing your own progressive spin to it - a decision that proved to be quite divisive, but also wholly successful, making one of ... read more

OH DAMN, EDDIE GOT A SWORD, AIN'T NO STOPPING HIM NOW!!!

Yeah, I don't care anymore. Only Dickinson-led Maiden record to be in the red, and only Maiden album in general to be in the red aside from the atrocious Virtual XI. And honestly, I don't really see any reason why I have any need to justify the reasoning. I genuinely believe that Senjutsu will end up going down as one of Maiden's all time lowest points. Even some of their other low points that everyone can universally agree on at least ... read more

Did King Crimson ever get as close to pure filler in their golden run as In The Wake Of Poseidon?

It should probably be noted before I get any further that I don't dislike In The Wake Of Poseidon at all. But in a discography as flawless as Crimsons 1969-1974 run, this is the album that easily sticks out the most as aimless and pointless. And regardless of how understandable that may be, it's undeniably disappointing. I don't think I've come across a single person that hasn't come across this ... read more

Hey I seen you binged the entire Lil B discography, and I was wondering which album would be worth my time since I am going to be listening to 1 long album each day for a whole week.
Do you recommend either Blue Flame, God's Father, or anything else? Feel free to give me suggestions if you wish.

Because I don't usually give perfect scores, I consider a 98+ to be a 10/10.
