'What's Going On' is Marvin Gaye's masterpiece, it's an album that's filled to the brim with some of the most soulful, transcendental and smooth soul tracks that flow so seamlessly into each other and contain some really thoughtful and observational songwriting. Marvin questions the world around him on this album, bringing up socio-political issues, violence, war, poverty, drugs so on and so forth while also trying to find a form of comfort and solace with his God, but in contrast with the ... read more

'Tago Mago' is the 3rd album from the German band krautrock and psychedelic rock band Can and the best way to describe this album is with one word..... odd. Everything about this album is odd, from the instrumentals to the compositions we get a non stop flow of zany psychedelia and I can't help but have a great time with some of these tracks, especially the lengthy tracks like Halleluhwah in particular. There was only really one moment in the tracklist that I couldn't get into and was a bit too ... read more

LED ZEPPELIN IV BABY! ISSA DAMN CLASSIC!

To me, Led Zeppelins fourth self-titled album is easily the bands best body of work, but I also think that this is the quintessential classic hard rock album, it defines what hard rock should strive to be and in the process it contains some incredible pieces of hard rock material that has stood the test of time and aged gracefully unlike many others from this era. Each respective member is on their a-game for this thing, especially John Bonham and Jimmy ... read more

Nick Drake's 3rd and final album 'Pink Moon' is a short, minimal yet impactful album that contains some brilliant, dense and poetic lyrics on top of sweet, melancholic and bare instrumentals that make this album all the more intimate. Personally the instrumentals just feel way too skeletal in some places, making it my least favourite of the 3 Nick Drake albums in terms of production but that doesnt make it bad at all because honestly its still up there. It strives in its subtly and it's easy ... read more

On Black Thought's 3rd entry in the 'Streams of Thought' series, he proves once again he is untouchable as a lyricist and as an emcee.

With it understandably being delayed I was left a tad bit underwhelmed by the end product when compared to the other entrys but all in all it's still very good. Black Thoughts bars of course havent shown much in the way of any weakness, he flows effortlessly on each track throughout the album, the production is quite enjoyable with some really great moments ... read more

'Deep Purple in Rock' is a pretty good classic hard rock experience from Deep Purple that delivers on energetic performances and heavy riffs, while it doesnt really stand out to me when compared to other, better hard rock albums at the time, I still came away with some tracks that I thought were great and moments where the band showed great prowess.

Led Zeppelin's 3rd self-titled album goes a bit underappreciated in their discography when compared to the big ones like 'Physical Graffiti' and the other 3 self-titled ones but to me it's one of the bands best outings. The production on this thing took a massive step up in quality from the first two albums, with cleaner sounds and tracks here that have more of a folk emphasis, those tracks couldn't have turn out any better than they already did because they sound impeccable. Sure it may not be ... read more

A Micky T hot take?????? Those are quite rare!

Despite 'My Agenda' having some incredible moments I can't really say that I enjoy it in it's entirety.

I want to get on the Dorian Electra hype train, believe me I do since they've made some great music not only on this but also on 'Flamboyant', but 'My Agenda' just feels kind've rushed to me, with ideas that get predictable real quick, some tracks feeling thrown together like an absolute mess and writing that feels underdeveloped. With the ... read more

Van Morrisons 3rd album 'Moondance' might just be my personal favourite album from him so far, it sees him at his most humorous, his most refined and as a whole this album is just really fun all. The production choices on this album feel a lot more enjoyable to me, they sound pretty straightforward and blues-y in contrast with 'Astral Weeks' which to me felt like it was meandering way too much but none of those issues occur here, there's even moments where there's inspirations from other genres ... read more

From what I've heard John Lennon's solo output is a mix between being really good and being God awful, thankfully 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band' falls into the good category. It has its issues though, like I find it a bit inconsistent and sometimes really messy in its instrumentals but when John is focused and writing some sincere songs alongside pleasant instrumentals it sounds great, the simplistic instrumentals are quite pleasant and John's lyrics are quite intriguing when they work, they're ... read more

While there isn't much about 'Curtis' that blows me away, I can still see why people would hold this in high regard. Curtis Mayfield delivers on making a really fun, soulful and spiritual record that had some incredibly lush production alongside a recognizable voice with often thoughtful lyrics. Its something nice to have on in the background but ultimately idk if I'll ever return to it.

Prior to this I've never heard a solo project from any member of the Beatles, so I guess the best place to start with that is with my personal favourite Beatle George Harrison and his sophomore album 'All Things Must Pass'. This album is a large undertaking from George Harrison to say the least, clocking in at about an hour and 40 minutes with 23 tracks, but with that amount of time George manages to showcase the talent that he never really got to fully showcase during his tenure with the ... read more

The 5th and final album from one of the most iconic duos in music history Simon & Garfunkel doesn't disappoint in the slightest, in fact 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' is possibly the duos best album. Despite some songs on here being overplayed as hell, this album has so much about it that makes it great, whether that be the diverse sounds of the songs on the record or the duos vocals and songwriting. There some absolutely gorgeous pieces on this thing such as the title track, The Boxer and ... read more

While 'Atlas Vending' is a very good Noise Rock album from METZ that has some incredible tracks and instrumentation, it sounds so derivative of Daughters a lot of the time that it just leaves me wanting to go listen to some 'You Won't Get What You Want' or their self-titled instead.

The more that I listen to Loathes 'I Let It in and It Took Everything', the more I fall in love with it.

Loathes sophomore album is an incredible body of work that I didn't expect to grow attached to with more listens. This album is filled to brim with tracks that are unrelenting in its visceral metalcore roots but also comforting and dreaming with its shoegaze inspired atmospheres, there's clearly a Deftones influence there but I feel like Loathe manage to stray far enough away from that ... read more

Nick Drakes sophomore album 'Bryter Layter' sees him make stellar improvements upon his already impressive debut, therefore creating a more enjoyable and consistent experience. Where 'Five Leaves Left' felt minimal in its sonic approach, 'Bryter Layter' feels a bit more expansive with inspirations from Jazz bleeding it's way through the sound and I feel like this aesthetic works for Nick Drake, every instrumental on this album is gorgeous to say the least. Nick himself does not underperform at ... read more

Now I'm sure that I'm not alone in only really knowing Creedance Clearwater Revival from a few select singles, most notably the Vietnam War type beat itself 'Fortunate Sun' (yes, I'm uncultured) so going into their 5th album 'Cosmo's Factory' I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into fully, but after a listen I can say that I'm quite intrigued. 'Cosmo's Factory' possibly shows the best of what this band has to offer with simple and jammy yet poignant Swamp Rock and Southern Rock tunes, I ... read more
