Yes - Close to the Edge
100
I'm actually pinning this review in hopes that I can get someone who hasn't heard this to give this a spin. If you have not heard this do yourself a favor and check this out.

Like seriously if nothing else just check out the title track, it is bar none one of the greatest listening experiences of all time, it actually feels like a spiritual awakening, it may be intimidating at nearly 19 minutes but trust me, Yes make every second count. The other 2 tracks are also sublime and beautiful ... read more

Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album
80
Somehow calm and relaxing despite the scatter shot and chaotic nature of the music. Richard D. James album is the sort of album I can listen to at anytime and it always manages to surprise me.
Mac DeMarco - Five Easy Hot Dogs
65
It definitely helped that I heard this late at night half asleep, it's as you would expect from Mac, a chill and vibey project that is super simple. Five Easy Hot Dogs is a bit too simple though, while it is fine and enjoyable it is still disappointing that after the nearly 4 year wait Mac returns with some extremely minimal instrumentals and no vocals, it just feels rather dull and forgettable when put alongside the rest of Mac's discography,
Cocteau Twins - Treasure
85
Cold and yet beautiful, all around stunning. Treasure contains some of Cocteau Twins highest highs, tracks like Lorelei, Pandora and Aloysius never fail to give me goosebumps. The dreamlike reverb heavy soundscapes paired with Elizabeth Fraser's gorgeous vocals makes for an experience that equal parts beautiful as it is haunting.
Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
80
Unlike many Hip-Hop albums from this era, It Takes a Nation manages to feel timeless. Its hard and explosive, each track feels like the soundtrack to a riot.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever to Tell
55
It's not bad but every time I give this record a shot I cannot remember anything about it.

honestly out of the fromsoft games I've played, sekiro and ds3 fight toe to toe for the best boss fights. ER was cool but its bosses don't touch either of the former, and I'm gonna wait till the DLC to speak on the boss quality of bloodborne as a whole, because I've heard those are the best from the game lol

Yeah, it's amazing so far. I think the bosses are a little lackluster compared to the other fromsoft games, but maybe DS3 and Sekiro have really just spoiled me💀

still going through it lol. If you've played bloodborne, I've been editing my locations to which area of it I am on at the moment lol
