1,000 followers. An accomplishment that I couldn’t ever possibly achieve without the help of you all. 4 months. 4 months I’ve been on this site, posting reviews regularly for all of you. It felt like yesterday since I logged onto this website one day, having the account for many months but just to lurk, and something in me just wanted to start writing reviews. Fast forward to present day, these past few months have just been bliss. I wouldn’t or couldn’t be here today on ... read more

For the first time in my life, love at first sight isn’t such a wild idea to me anymore. Loving a specific piece of music, dare I say thinking of it as a modern classic just upon the first few listens is something that I never would’ve thought of. Before you even consider giving something a high score, let alone a 100, you need to settle down and think about it. You have to relisten to it multiple times, look deeply into the lyrical content, background, and everything. With all of ... read more

I was getting a lot of Some Rap Songs vibes

Update: Edited the score for Reedy, love you dude

MINI REVIEW: "Atrocity Exhibition" is filled to the brim with quality induced tracks no doubt. It's a great album, very solid, but in my eyes, it's a little bit overrated. I think 83 is quite the generous score but it simply isn't a perfect album by any means or even in the 90s range for me. More or less, I appreciate it more than I personally enjoy the album itself. I will be revisiting ... read more

Life has so much more to give,
Even for the sins you may forgive.
There’s still something out there for you,
Not all is turmoil, there’s some left to do.

The darkest days run through your head,
The restless nights in your bed.
Thinking about all the times that were great,
Not knowing what the future was to create.
To make life so much less enjoyable,
Prolonged pain unavoidable.

“Long Season” made me realize,
Life has much more to mesmerize.

Live for yourself,
Not for ... read more

The feeling of comfort is something we all need as of now. From the world we live in, the situations we always get into, we just need a break from it all. That alleviation of pain or distress keeps you from just going astray, and that’s the last thing we all want right now. To go onto a more personal note, it’s more or less what I’ve been going through recently. Without the people in my personal life, and even the people on this very website, I don’t know where I’d ... read more

“OK Human” is the album that truly revitalized the band’s initial interest from long ago. For context, Weezer, in my opinion, has gone down quite a steep slope for these past few years, and honestly, I’ve never really been intrigued by their music style or songs in general. I never outright hated the band, it’s just that there wasn’t anything to really like about them for me. Their main flaws really went around due to how big of a mess of some of their albums ... read more

In the hijinks of the streets and alleyways of the beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada, it’s beauty can be heard from just miles away, and seen for even more of the arrays of light and boisterous sounds in the distance. But it’s not all of the beauty as it seems. There’s always madness behind the beauty of anything. “After Hours” tells the story of the horror that can be entailed in that area, it might not be directly correlated, but it’s the setting of the ... read more

Due to the fact that most mainstream music is dominated by pop, and when something’s mainstream, the majority of it can be quite stale and average. You can name dozens upon dozens of different artists that seem to blend into the same crowd. Never really switching up their style, doing everything by the book, but still coming out very successful. From the outside looking in, there’s not much to like with pop if you don’t like the socially accepted norm that it’s ... read more

As someone who’s incredibly new to this genre of music, I’ve always been intrigued by it. From what I’ve heard, post-punk has some of the most interesting instrumentals I’ve ever listened to, and that’s in positive light. With it’s positive reception, I was quite engrossed by this album’s release. Just due to the high praise of both their debut, and now their sophomore album. After listening to this album, I did learn one thing… I’m a ... read more

If anyone thought people still listened to ZAYN, this album finally confirms that “Nobody Is Listening” to his music anymore.

Middle of the road. I think a lot of people can agree that the mainstream falls under that category nowadays. Most artists are not striving to make more than “the norm” of music, and they play it safe. Why does that happen? Because it works. It appeals to the majority of the crowd, and it gets streams and revenue. But there’s always an ... read more

One of the main aspects I look for in an album is creativity. Creativity is something that’s vital to this music industry as it keeps everything changing, provides genre defining moments, and can potentially change music forever. Following the norm may be a safe strategy, but that boldness and bravery, to strive for something more, to take a large risk on your full-length project, to provide something that could either be a hit or a miss, is something that shouldn’t be taken for ... read more

The ending of a trilogy has to be perfected, a strong closure to a collection of highly regarded music. Something to look back on that you don’t seemingly regret it not living up to its own legacy. “SATURATION III” is not only a strong cessation, but it’s also the most impressive and substantial album of the Saturation series.

No doubt, this is the group's best album yet. A lot of the magic from it for me is that it ended the series perfectly, on the highest note that ... read more

Hashir's "In Limbo" may be an unknown specimen, but it doesn't markdown on the true quality it has within. Although derivative to a lot of different catalogs of music I've heard, I believe it takes some of the best parts of what I like and melds it together into a serene and simplistic EP.

Hidden Gems EP. 1

The Avalanches have quite the career, as their quality has always maintained it’s high standard. “Since I Left You” was the start of it all, kickstarting an everlasting journey to creating some of the best pieces of music of all time. Although I prefer it’s successor, “Wildflower’, “Since I Left You” has some interesting ideas and was the first to come from the group, and is undoubtedly a stunning album.

Welcome to my 200th review! Thank you all ... read more

Craftsmen like Kanye West and Kid Cudi are two performers that you truly can't depict their supreme pinnacle of. The two of them have had enduring careers, dropping critically acclaimed albums left and right. Them collaborating, must mean greatness, and "KIDS SEE GHOSTS" satisfied that assertion, seemingly conveying a portion of their best exhibitions to date.

This short duo project was able to do a lot in it’s short run-time. With only 7 tracks, and 23 minutes of run-time, how ... read more

Lo-fi music is something I’ve never really been rather fond of. It’s always been a genre of music that I never really found the time to tap into. But, Joji’s “Chloe Burbank Vol. 1” is my favorite album of all time. From past experiences of listening to this project, following its release, looking up to the man behind the art himself, and just personally enjoying this absolute masterpiece, in my eyes, so it’s not a surprise as to how fond of the album I am. ... read more

Ah, the review that I've been holding back to make for a whole year. Now that it's a new year, I can now rip into the album that I dislike greatly. Arguably the worst mainstream release of 2020. Justin Bieber's "Changes".

There are so many problems with this album it's crazy. Let's just get started, shall we?

Despite all the things the kid has done, I never really WANTED to hate him. I feel like he has been overhated all of his life. Sure, he makes pretty mediocre music, and also ... read more

In honor of the rapper MF DOOM, I will be reviewing this legendary classic in hip hop. Rest in Peace Daniel Dumile. Rest easy legend, fly high. <3

"Madvillainy" is an album that I've been delaying an review for quite a while, and why's that? Because this album is a work of art that merits the most extreme regard and love it deserves. I can't really put into words on how exceptional this album is. The duo group, "Madvillain", contains 2 artists of the likes of MF DOOM and ... read more

Have you ever ever heard an album that was simply happiness? Pure bliss all over the entire listen, not one tune sounding lackluster, all of them having full quality. An album which you can repeat for years and by no means feel dissatisfied at any point and time. That album for me is Tyler, The Creator’s “Flower Boy”.

“Flower Boy” was an enormous stylistic risk for Tyler, The Creator, and in my opinion, it’s among the very best albums of all time. A novel ... read more

A sailor is one who follows along on a ship, helping throughout the whole way of the journey. “The Sailor” is an adventure of Rich Brian, and is one of the best projects of 2019.

Rich Brian is such an interesting artist for me. A kid living in Indonesia, learning English primarily through the internet. Releasing under an alias under “Rich Chigga” creating arguably “meme rap” with his hit single “Dat $tick”. Not many people thought he would grow ... read more

On Charlise's review of slowthai - TYRON
"He simultaneously had a semi-strong delivery and a dull one, it's hard to explain, and with the most uninspiring production (especially the first half) it didn't really help either. Slowthai is seemingly going backwards with this project. I tried writing something earlier but I ended up just repeating this fact as it's my only real gripe but that factor was so heavy it ruined it all for me."
On Charlise's review of slowthai - TYRON
"I agree with this review a lot. Due to how generic it is I really couldn't find any motivation to write anything on it. Sad cause I really liked his debut but he's clearly gone into a direction that I don't like. Other than like 1 or 2 exceptions, this albums pretty poor."
