Kanye forgor how to make and release album💀

EDIT: Date delayed to August 6th. The only reason why I'm mad is him having his team string his fans on all day saying it WILL drop tonight until 10 minutes before the night ends to delay it. I'd have 0 problems with a delay if it was just not handled like this. HORRIBLE ROLLOUT.

A stripped back, stunningly serene, astonishingly powerful project like Clairo’s sophomore effort, “Sling” is something to not skip over and to take note of as it surprisingly enough became one of my favorite projects of the year.

If you were to be asked about an artist that has been overlooked as a “industry plant” or mediocre artist, you may think of a lot of other singer-songwriters from entertainment over the years, but the artist that comes to my mind ... read more

It may deliver on its promise from it’s name “All Over The Place”, but it seems that KSI barely makes any artistic growth and in some aspects takes a step back and puts himself in a strange position in the industry. The sophomore effort by KSI tried to pick too much more than it could chew and ended up lacking in most fronts.

Rather than digging into what made this album not reach out to what it looked for, I will be talking about how improvements can be made. To go into the ... read more

Well, here we are. If there is one thing to know about me, it’s that Joji is easily my favorite artist of all time. By quality, by memories, you name it. He completely changed my life and my music taste almost revolves around his own musical style, and inspired me into my own endeavors in my life.

Out of love for the artist, I decided to rank and fully review every song in his discography. This consists of 61 songs ranging from his albums, EP’s, features, unofficials, and leaks. ... read more

Before you come in with a prejudiced mindset or one to look for hidden flaws, keep one thing in mind. Greatness can only be achieved so many times in a consistent manner, and holding artists up to this high standard will only ruin your experience as you are looking for problems rather than seeing what you love. Take this album as it was presented. With that being said… “Call Me If You Get Lost” may not be Tyler’s greatest effort, but it sure as hell is one his ... read more

Hey everyone! I released a song!

For the past month, I’ve been experimenting with the making of music! I wanted to take you all on my journey but releasing my first ever attempt at music and even singing in general with, “Was it Real?”. A demo/single produced by H3 Music and everything else done by me. It is on Soundcloud and YouTube and depending on the reception, will be on all streaming platforms soon :)

I do want to preface the song with this:

1. The song isn’t ... read more

...give me a chance to explain.

Olivia Rodrigo’s debut LP, “SOUR”, was an album I wasn’t necessarily too excited on listening to. The actor turned musician was a name that I didn’t really know of until this year's biggest hit so far, “drivers license”. This ultimately was my first impression of her, but what I was left with was an empty listen. My care for her artistry was at an all time low, before even looking into more things. But one thing I did ... read more

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.” ~ Charles Mingus, 1977, Mainliner Magazine

Charles Mingus is a leader, not a follower. The American jazz bassist, pianist, and composer, born on April 22nd, is one of the most renowned jazz legends of our time. A 3 decade long masterful career, being able to work with other legends such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and many more, Mingus was like no other. ... read more

“Van Weezer”, American band Weezer’s second project of the year is finally out now after an immense amount of hype. Earlier this year, we received Weezer’s interest revitalization, “OK Human”, the chamber pop rock album with many exciting and euphoric moments, which I can officially say is a solid album. After years of decline, this was their first output to get old listeners intrigued again. This left me both excited and worried for the next album. ... read more

Envision the Great Plains, a vast open space with only one color to be found, green. An empty open space, leaving room for thoughts to prevail. A sight seen by many in just their own backyard, a field of grass. It may seem mundane, but in these plains, there’s nowhere else to go but these fields. This provides a beautiful golden frame for the painting of Squid’s debut project “Bright Green Field”. The framework leaves a lot to interpret, and the painting gives us the art ... read more

As the hype is starting to die down, I now feel comfortable with sharing my opinions on this album. Please hear me out, as I’m clearly an outlier here and I withhold criticisms not a lot of people have to give to this album. Let me preface it with this, I give every single album I listen to an equal chance. No prejudice is given to an album I listen to as it’s just not fair. I’ve seen so many comments about how some don’t give foreign albums to English “a ... read more

DJ Khaled makes albums so people can play it, and you actually hear it. You know, drive in your car, you hear another car playin it? Go to the barber shop, hear them playin' it? You know, turn the radio on, you hear them playin' it? You know, it's playin' everywhere. It's called great music. It's called albums that you actually hear the songs. Not no mysterious shit, and you never hear it.

Nature vs. Nurture is no longer a debate. The euphoric powerhouse adventure of “Nurture” may seem like an exploration in the nature of our world, but it’s truly nurtured by our own mannerisms. “Nurture” simultaneously exhibits a disconnect from the digital world but also has its roots in it, but arguably, “Nurture” ends up the most humane, tactile and emotionally potent project in this sphere of music.

“Nurture”, producer Porter ... read more

“IGOR” is one of the closest albums to my heart, as it’s one I feel 100% relation to, and is an album that explains itself. It unravels it’s own brilliance and madness behind it without any need of an explanation. The project exudes the love, care, anger, sadness, heartbreak, and so much more. With many loose narratives floating around with “Flower Boy”, “Wolf”, and “Cherry Bomb”, a clear motive and story was nowhere to be found with ... read more

We miss you SMT. We always will.

As life passes by around us, we all have to come to terms with growing up, gaining responsibilities, and moving into a new stage of our life. We have no choice but to face those consequences ourselves as we mature, leaving our innocence behind like a worn-and-torn stuffed animal and entering into a vast, brutal, often obscured reality that we’re not prepared to face. “Time ‘n’ Place” perfectly encapsulates the frightening feelings ... read more

"@luigui2907 I agree! The comparison between 777 and Blinding Lights is pretty big for me honestly. Both having 90s retro synthpop production. The music video/visuals for Blindling Lights has the same feeling you have when listening to 777. 777 being about gambling as well while The Weeknd's After Hours universe takes place in Las Vegas (you can probably get the correlation). I also think sonically they sound pretty alike but idrk how else to explain that besides you listening to both songs back to back I guess haha"

"Maybe I could've worded it a lot better, as in seeing a flaw in what you're doing rather than your character yourself. That was my bad, and I don't know a lot about you. But I do agree with the comment above mine, you should take a break. If it's really negatively effecting you this badly, take a break and just refresh your thoughts."

On Brad Taste's review of Bo Burnham - Make Happy
"Alright, I'm going to take the more civil approach with this one as I know it may hurt you, but just know this is simple criticism and not an attack at you. Giving something a 0 to lower it purposefully without your own opinion is essentially botting, it has almost the exact same agenda. This review calling out "witchhunters" also makes no sense. I do understand that it may happen but this situation? It's not the case. You curated this situation from your own actions, not anyone elses. You know your large platform on here, and how they can follow you and give it a 0 cause of your thoughts, and also how large that platform is for someone like me to see it. If your concern is that this album is a video and shouldn't be on charts? Submit a correction like a normal AOTY user, don't bot it. I know you know of botting so this should be common knowledge for you. Just do better in the future and there just wouldn't be a reason to call you out."
On Joji - Run
"@Cry His features are weird but its quite fitting for who he is honestly, I just hope he has more features that fit his genre more tbh (R&B artists). Daylight is an AMAZING song and it does what it goes out for perfectly! Your Man is a vibe, I do agree but does it deserve to be one of the most well known tracks on Nectar and beloved? No, it doesn't. Sanctuary did the synth-pop space vibe much better imo"
