shame is a fairly new name to me. After just giving this album a sample test run I found a decent amount of enjoyment in Drunk Tank Pink. The thing that pisses me off about this album thought is that right from the beginning I knew critics would eat this up. Don't get me wrong it's a pretty solid LP but this is just something that is super easy to cling onto and call it great if it had anything remotely to do with the subject matter.

If I'm going for modern punk music though I think I'll ... read more

After listening to Silver Dream today it made me realize that this one isn't as bad as I remember. The front half was kind of awful, but there's some good jams towards the back half that save it from being outright unlistenable. Two High haunts me in my sleep though, I'll never forgive them for that.

I'm done with Moon Taxi after this album. Let the Record Play wasn't COMPLETE garbage, the end of it saved it, but man Silver Dream was painful to get through. The lyrics are the definition of cliche and lazy. The grooves and beats scream hit formula and again are just outright dull and forgettable. This is coming from someone who has been a fan of the group since 2012 and seen them twice live. I'm not even disappointed because I had 0 expectation after Two High and whatever the bottom of shoe ... read more

Life is like orange juice... better WITH Pulp.

My dad put Disco 2000 on my iPod Nano back in the day and I just was kind of dismissive of it. Probably played Stacy's Mom for the hundredth time instead. Needless to say Pulp kind of disappeared from my mind until last summer when I was listening to this curated indie playlist that had Do You Remember the First Time? I was blown away by this lost hit. The roaring guitars and the college rock era vocals of Jarvis Cocker blew me away, not to ... read more

I'll catch myself quoting this song during work. Then I wonder why the younger kids are freaked out

I would say I’m a casual Cudi fan. The first two MOTMs are far and away his best with countless memorable singles like Erase Me, Soundtrack 2 My Life, and Pursuit of Happiness. Ever since he did Kids See Ghosts with Ye I was curious like most I’m sure, to see what he would put out next. MOTM 3 is a somewhat fulfilling follow up, but instead of getting KSG Cudi we get The Scott’s Cudi. A LOT of the songs sound eerily similar to what could be a Travis Scott B-side album.

A good ... read more

In the age of inconsistent, but talented rappers, Rico Nasty is one that I can always count on to put out something entertaining. Nightmare Vacation is no different. While there are numerous tracks that beg to be played either on TikTok or get belted by white girls in their white 2017 Nissan Altimas, there's an undeniable amount of bangers on NV. I've always loved her aggressive and sometimes quirky delivery and flow. Never leaves me thinking "wow that was boring". That remix of the ... read more

There's a lot of personality in the singer's voice and it was nice to have an album like this so late in the year. The only thing is the instrumentals surrounding it seems pretty plain for the most part. Still a solid listen!

IDLES is one of those groups where they could literally write a song about tampons and toenails and I’d enjoy the hell out of it. This is easily the groups more politically fueled album they’ve dropped thus far. In a year as controversial as 2020 they really dropped an album like Run the Jewels where it just suits the times so effortlessly.

Joy as an Act of Resistance admittedly is the better album, but there’s some really fantastic tracks and memorable moments on Ultra Mono ... read more

This album is 69 songs long obviously.

The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs seems like one night they had this amazing idea to just concoct together whatever creativity and lyrical work they were working on and threw it all together for one massive extravaganza of a project. Out of the three disks I would probably rank them as they are numerically, one being the best and third being the least enjoyable. Even so the least enjoyable disc is still a 7 out of 10 in my eyes. There's a ton of heart ... read more

We really living in a year where Miley Cyrus put out a better 'rock' album than Green Day.

Miley started off dropping Midnight Sky which was decent, not spectacular but her most solid single in a while. Then she blew my mind with that Heart of Glass cover that I don't think anyone was really expecting. Her cover of Zombie wasn't too bad either, but in my eyes that song is kind of untouchable or permanently unrivaled.

Going into this I really had no idea what to expect or if this was a fluke, ... read more

What can't you praise about this album? No Cities to Love is a fantastic reformation album if you wanna call it that. Right as Price Tag opens I'm blown away by Brownstein's unforgettable voice and thrashing guitars. I'm in love. Surface Envy comes along with that killer opening riff. DAMN! So great. No Cities to Love has that awesome chorus that just begs to be chanted and followed through on that low delivery of "it's the way that we looooooooooove". Perfection. A New Wave? Isn't ... read more

I'm nowhere close to a diehard Beck fan so that's probably why I've always really enjoyed it.

Ramones have very unique sound. Not sounds with an “S”. The same riff with maybe a few pauses in between or rearrangements are VERY apparent. Not to say this album doesn’t manage to stay interesting for the entire track list. There’s a reason why this album has become somewhat timeless. The sound they do stick to is fucking fantastic. Blitzkrieg Bop will forever be in my top 100 songs.

I kept expecting there to be an explosive chorus or soaring guitars. Nope. Foo Fighters rode the Moon Taxi to mainstream alt rock

Somehow I’ve seen MGK live twice and I don’t know how or why. The day before I saw him Killshot dropped and he performed Rap Devil... yeah...

I completely ignored the ratings for this because the single Bloody Valentine wasn’t horrendous or anything. After hearing this album though it completely blends in with this bland, by the numbers, cliched pop rock album. You really think people are gonna hear lines like “I use a razor to take off the edge” or “kiss ... read more

This is one of the best covers of all time. If Miley transitioned to rock I seriously think she’d be unstoppable.

I love stumbling upon gems like this. Menomena was recommended on Spotify for "fans of TV on the Radio" and it's not hard to see why. Both singers have pretty unique vocal tone and very high quality control too. Something I really respect about Friend and Foe and albums like this in general, is that every song has a similar sound that remains consistent with the entire record while every song sounds unique and recognizable from the other. This is a very unique record and I can ... read more

There's something just so 2000's about this track that makes it so addictive.
