All good things must eventually come to an end and unfortunately the end of Joy Division would come in the form of their second and final album, 'Closer' which came out in 1980. Although the Joy Division moniker would end with 'Closer' the band would live on in the form of New Order, but their vibe was far more different in contrast with the former, so I'll save it for another day and just focus on 'Closer'. Joy Division had already made themselves known and changed the history of Punk music a ... read more

It's cool to see an embrace of Prog Rock that stems from its 70's roots, in Richard Dawson & Circles case we see use grooves, sonic palettes and general songcraft that feels like a tribute to the greats from this era, but 'Henki' as a whole just feels like a bland, sterile and uninspired collection of Genesis worship to my ears. That wouldn't be a bad thing in and of itself if it was executed well, but it's not on 'Henki' in my opinion. The bland production makes the driving instrumentation ... read more

A very promising collaborative effort from Converge & Chelsea Wolfe, but a lackluster effort at that. After the first two amazing tracks on 'Bloodmoon: I' the album suffers in quality with tracks that aren't particular interesting or memorable, it's not bad at all in fact most of the tracks are at the very least decent, but the gap in quality from the best tracks was very noticeable and the sheer predictability of the project brought it down for me. It's a decent, accessible fusion of ... read more

Simultaneously, some of Adele's absolute best songs turn up on '30', but some of her most dull and redundant songs also happen to turn up here. What Adele does stylistically on a few tracks here is very respectable but for every stylistically different track there's about a dozen bland piano ballads.

I can definitely appreciate what Damon Albarn was trying to go for with 'The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows', and while it's pleasant all around I can't really say that it's something that's worth coming back to personally. Damon does have a lot going for him in this albums setting since it has some very good somber performances from Damon himself, an interesting atmosphere and interesting sonic detours that feel inspired by David Bowie's 'Blackstar', but not all of it sticks ... read more

Taylor Swift is an artist that I've never really had that much of a strong opinion on in the past, of course I enjoyed a few of the projects that I heard from her including her two latest albums of new material 'evermore' and 'folklore', and her re-recording of her 2008 album 'Fearless' which came out earlier this year. But despite my enjoyment of these albums I've never had much of a strong opinion of her work since I haven't heard the project from her that absolutely wows me yet. I hoped that ... read more
