"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

I've been listening to Talk Talk's final two albums for months at this point. I probably haven't listened to them enough to confidently say that I've properly "familiarized" myself with them, but I've definitely listened to them enough times to have a solid enough opinion of the band - or at least the band at that period of their career. And throughout my knowledge of this band's existence - since long before I ever listened to Spirit Of Eden for the very first time - there's always ... read more

Figured I'd just get their late career albums out of the way first, because honestly, I do not care for their most recent three albums all that much at all.

I mean, classic '70s prog band - and perhaps the best and most consistent one at that - going metal? And it's actually pretty good? Yeah, that's cool and all, but "pretty good" unfortunately doesn't translate to "great and memorable". If there was literally one thing holding this album back from easily being in the ... read more

From what I've read, Goto broke Midori up because she simply stopped finding it fun. And unfortunately, with their last studio release, you can kind of get that sense; that the band themselves are sort of drifting apart.

It's definitely upsetting to admit, since, in the short time that I've been listening to them, Midori have already cemented themselves as being one of the most abrasive, embracive, lovable, and never-endingly fun artists out there, but Shinsekai, despite sounding like ... read more

This is the best comedy album in decades. All the songs here are perfect examples of raunchy satire done right. These're the songs that Frank Zappa wish he could've written. I rated this in accordance to its ranking in the funniest records I've ever heard, second being Masturbate In Praise Of Satan and first being Diabły Wzywają. Definitely a record to listen to when you want to laugh at 30 year old white chicks complaining about their high school dates.

Okay, it's official, Midori are the best band to ever walk the earth. How people are capable of making music this good and it not even being their absolute best effort is beyond me. That said, Second is better and that is a fact.
Also, I guess me liking the anime tiddy album is me finally succumbing to my inner weeb. I guess there's no turning back at this point.

But yeah, this is peak rock right here. Like, I don't even know how to properly explain it. I've been listening to this and Second ... read more

I'm just some guy who likes to give his thoughts on different types of music. I'm mainly a rock and metal fan, but I listen to anything.
