After Humanz kind of disappointed and The Now Now wasn't that much better I was very much looking forward to this new Gorillaz album. The singles leading up to it made me think that this would be their absolute best. Welp...

This is the best thing that the act has put out in years no question, but is it better than Demon Days or Plastic Beach? No way. Some of the singles are among from Song Machine Season One are their very best. Momentary Bliss, Desole, Pink Phantom, PacMan, and especially ... read more

Blue Rondo A La Turl has been my dad's ringtone for the past decade. Despite the amount of calls he gets I never got bored of the song. The same can be said about the rest of Time Out. What a beautiful collection of soothing jazzy ear worms.

Look if you hate 100 Gecs I feel sorry for you this slaps even harder than the OG 1000 Gecs. Fuck the piss babies that say otherwise.

There's no denying that Megan is very talented and definitely has the singles to show for it, but this album just felt like the same song over and over again. This isn't an awful album by any means, but I don't think it functions collectively. Cash Shit will always slap regardless

I feel like I am in the minority when I say that I've never thought of a Strokes album to sit below a 7.5 rating. Comedown Machine was my first album of theirs that I heard in full growing up and it made enough of an impression for me to keep up with their past work. Given it was probably the worst time to become a Strokes fan since I had to wait seven years for The New Abnormal to drop, even though I saw them tour back in 2019. Simpler times 2019... sigh.

The New Abnormal sees the modern ... read more

I really love this album, like a lot a lot. This is easily one of the best jazz rap records to be released in the 2010's. I'd go as far to say that it IS the best of the 2010's only to be rivaled that of Chance the Rapper's 10 Day mixtape. Cordae proved himself to me during his XXL freestlye and cypher back in 2019, which had a bunch of stinkers, but he stuck out as the better. His storytelling ability is very strong and nostalgic. Talks about growing up and how his career has taken him to his ... read more

Beach House never fail to put me in a trance in the best way possible. I often go back and forth between which of their projects are my favorite, but at this moment it is definitely Bloom. Track after track is just a beautiful shoegazey journey through space. I often get lost in tracks like Lazuli and Wishes. The best part about this record is that you'd go into an average shoegaze/indie record like this one and think that all the tracks will probably sound the same, but that couldn't be ... read more

I can see why a first time listener would compare TOBi to pre-Coloring Book era Chance the Rapper. His storytelling ability is very unique, not to mention a welcomed voice to the jazz rap community.

Punisher probably deserves more listens for me to be certain on my rating, but there's no denying the amount of talent that's present on this album. Kyoto and I Know the End are among my top tracks of the year.

21 has rarely missed in his short career so far. It's not as good as I Am > I Was but it is pretty memorable and very quotable at that. Plus Morgan Freeman how could it miss?

Wolf Alice have become one of rock underdogs of the 2010's.

My Love is Cool from the moment I first heard it back in 2015 was love at first hear. Ellie's lead vocals are phenomenal. Even though they sound nothing alike, I am getting a Cranberries vibe from her voice the way it fluctuates and goes from soft, delicate to aggressive and bitter. The musicianship is definitely there too. I've never heard a grunge, alternative act be so simultaneously shoegaze-y. I adore that about them.

The ... read more

Gotye was the pop star that got away. I question a lot of the time whether or not his time was too soon or if he just wasn't meant for the moment. Making Mirrors is a wonderful little collection of soft pop tunes. Somebody That I Used to Know is one of the best "one hit wonders" of all time (Eyes Wide Open and Hearts a Mess still charted). Fuck all of you I want Gotye back!!

I would rate this album higher if I could figure out wtf Beck is saying in the chorus of Loser

I have a soft spot for Band of Horses because it reminds me of my senior year of high school.

Why Are You Okay is the most fun BOH album. Is it their best, not necessarily. I think there's a great collection of songs here and I think musically it's quite beautiful and a bit more mainstream tinged. The middle of the album is really where this album shines through as something special. From In a Drawer to Country Teen would make an amazing EP, maybe even a top 10 of the decade.

This isn't to ... read more

I'm not sure why this is a thing but I am very glad that it is. Jack Antonoff brings in some friends to sing his songs and some of them are quite spectacular. MO's version of You're Still A Mystery worked out perfectly.

Doja can make a semi-decent pop rap song, but can she make me not actively dislike her online presence?
