I have been wanting to review this for MONTHS. This is a rambling collection of my thoughts and lyrical interpretations of one of the albums dearest to me.
Warning – this has me being a sad-sack-of-sh*t.

1. ‘Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies’ starts the album off with what I think is one of Biffy’s best songs. Beginning with brilliant orchestration by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and swiftly merging to a wild staccato clash before frontman Simon Neil starts ... read more

A somewhat nostalgic ramble.

The past few months have been the strangest time for me for listening to music, as I feel like a veteran music nerd!
For 5 years now I've had my quest to listen to "all the best music ever" after discovering Spotify and "best of" lists. I'm pleased to say that I've listened to a large amount of the classics and love many of them.

Almost every time I use the "On This Day" feature of this site and look back 5 years, I can often ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hey there! I’m making a community list for the end of the world, and I would love for you to contribute.

Prompt:

“The surrounding buildings, in ruins. The last survivors, scrambling to find anything that remains. Fire flickers in the pitch-black, creating just a sliver of radiance. Miraculously, you find an old device that can play music. You can only play one album as the battery is nearly dead. Knowing that you have little time left, what is the one album that you choose to listen to as you watch the world crumble before your eyes?”

The album topic could discuss a disastrous time, its sound could fit the vibe of a post apocalyptic setting, or it could be one of your favorite albums that you would want to experience for the last time.

Please provide the artist, album, and an explanation as to why you chose that specific album.

Thank you for reading <3

Here’s the list:

I followed the albums released over 2019 intently and have spent a lot of time listening to my favourites, unravelling them and growing very attached to a few. I have listened to over 400 LPs; ...
