Dreamville - Revenge of the Dreamers III
88
I didn't expect to enjoy this album as much as I did, as it is an album in which a lot of creative voices could easily clash with their different ideas of how the album should sound like, but that didn't happen. I loved almost every track on the album, but JID really did outshine the rest of the Dreamville squad and JID had me wondering after every verse when he would come again. Nevertheless, the rest of Dreamville still did really good, an example of excellent work is the verse of Johnny ... read more

Roland Cristal - On veut plus d'océans - L'album de tous les dangers
78
Has been a while since I've last written a review for something on this website but I have decided to sometimes check in and share some music I find interesting.

If you're looking for something goofy as hell to listen to this is the stuff. If you could define music as 'quirky', this is it. I do not want to say too much as this is something you should experience for yourself.

I'd say start with listening to Vendetta by this artist as it is the most popular song by them right now and should ... read more

Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon III: The Chosen
42
This album is extra disappointing, because you know Kid Cudi can definitely do better than this, but the first half of the album is mostly very generic trap and the melodies are uninspired as hell. “She Knows This” and “Dive” are perfect examples of this. The album is definitely listenable, but it doesn’t have memorable to cling onto, to come back and listen to this album again.

The song “Show Out” is just an unfortunate cash-grab, as anyone could ... read more

"Experimental music"
Joey Bada$$ - The Light Pack
80
I might be saying the obvious here, but I feel like this EP serves the purpose of being the prelude to his next album and this kind of serves as an I told you so. I told you so in the way that he thinks that this next album is going to dignify releasing this EP, because the album is going to be that good (and it might be). He spends a lot of the lyrics on being the savior of rap and bragging that this album is going to be here at the exact right time (at least that’s what I am reading ... read more
Giveon - TAKE TIME
92
I really recommend this album to anyone who enjoys gorgeous vocals, original song-writing (in my opinion at least, Favorite Mistake is a beautiful and poetic example of this) and great melodies. The production is minimalistic, which is not bad, as I think it adds to the atmosphere Giveon is trying to create on this album. Honestly this guy is criminally underrated and I think he'll only grow to be bigger the coming years. I think Drake has uncovered a gem on "Dark Lane Demo Tapes", so ... read more

Supp!

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))

Hey, I have a song out! When you have the chance to, please give it a listen. This is a collaboration between my friend Martin and me. It would be nice if you give it a review or rating. I would love to read what you think.

About

*I suck at writing reviews*

I really love listening to music and honestly it’s mostly hiphop until now, but I mean the rest of this account shows me trying out new genres and rating the albums. I guess this account shows my attempts to delve into other sorts of music. If I had to say so myself, I’d say those attempts are succeeding pretty well.

My average rating is around 6.8 so I guess overall I'm pretty positive about music.
