*NOT AN ACTUAL REVIEW*

I have a new rating system in the works (see on my profile), & I think that this one might make more sense going forward. This means also that I'll only be rating things in increments of 5, because it's irritating seeing my highest score only be an 84, which isn't really in much a realm of difference from an 81 (& I love the 84s way more). This rating system will only affect my higher-rated albums, or albums with actually great songs on them, so don't worry, I'm ... read more

Weezer's 2002 album "Maladroit" may just be the most interesting one that I've heard so far, having a much heavier sound than their other albums, as well as having quite the melancholic edge (compared to stuff after, I've heard songs off "Pinkerton" to know that's going to be a hell of a sad album) to it that makes a lot of these tracks much more enjoyable. Especially my favorite track on here, "Death And Destruction", which has one of Rivers's best vocal ... read more

Why don't I mess with a different format for this review?

"Raditude" is a failed & misguided attempt at trendchasing...but it's not all bad. In fact, only 2 songs on here are outright bad, quite a bit are just super weak. I'm not saying this is overhated, as this album does deserve ALL the hate it gets, but it doesn't irritate me as much as it does for most...& it's not forgettable like I expected it to be, so I'll give it that & only that.

Tracks like "(If You're ... read more

This review now exists at some point in time. YAY! Before I get into it, thanks so much for 150+ followers, I didn't know people liked monthly reviews made w/ barely more effort than just jotting down thoughts when listening to the album. Will I write reviews more often? I want to, that'd definitely be nice, so I might do that from now on :) (but I can't say they'll be as high-effort as this unfortunately, that's difficult & stressful).

Now to the album: Daft Punk improved their music on ... read more

Green Day's "¡DOS!" is a painfully mediocre & overproduced slog to get through, especially at its most overproduced & stale moments. But there are alright moments on here, & it's not like I hate or even think most of these songs are bad, except for the weird genre pivot that I'll get to at some point in this review (if you know you KNOW).

"See You Tonight" is a short 1-minute acoustic track in the vein of "Song of the Century", & it's okay. ... read more

A shorter review for a change of pace (maybe I don't know what how much I'm gonna write here):

Tool's "Ænima" packs its runtime w/ rhythmically interesting & catchy-as-hell grooves & riffs, as well as some really great vocals from Maynard James Keenan, whether they're distorted or not. When it comes to the groove, pretty much all of these tracks bring a lot to the table in terms of making the album absolutely hypnotic to listen to. Tracks like "Stinkfist", ... read more

Ah right, my bad. Should've seen your rating distribution first. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Yes "OK Human" is my first Weezer album. Weird start I know, but Weezer seem like a fun band to dig into b/c of how inconsistent a lot of people paint them out to be. AVG Score: 66.9?
