I was silly to ever rate this below perfection. This is a man so inspired that he dedicated all of his remaining strength and passions to creating this masterpiece. Donuts is an ode to Hip Hop, an ode to music production and the love for music.

they have lost everything about them that once set them apart from other indie bands, they now exist as a gentle whisper in the wind

I have a belief that within every music lover there insists an appreciation for minimalism, an ability to evoke so much raw emotion in a sense that verges on being primitive in nature. It is mostly natural for works of this stature to resonate strongly with those who care about music composition, let alone theory and structure of song. The music played here is derivative from African tribal music, worldly music full of passion and admiration for the art of sound. Riley expertly displays these ... read more

I chose to start my year off with some delightful K-Pop, and I was not let down

This is a modern advancement of protest music, a deeply disturbing take on the vast problems with modern society, as if the album itself has absorbed the darkness surrounding it. While not saying much, the message gets across more so than any post-trump / post-brexit political album I have heard.

A scattered arrangement of the progression of X's artistry, a glimpse into what could have been. I found this to be surprisingly enjoyable at parts, X's unique ear for melodies in unorthodox production comes across well here, creating a somewhat cohesive sound throughout the album. There are no particular moments of greatness to be seen here, but it is clear that this is further indication that X could have potentially explored new sounds and ideas if he was still alive. Songs such as 'Guardian ... read more

I have never heard a more fitting opening line to an album than the opening to Shattered Dreams. "In precise words.." Earl empties the sounds of his chaotic, diseased mind. Keeping it brief at only 25 minutes, this is the most authentic display of mental health I have possibly ever heard. This album feels almost too personal to critique, this is a dark, twisted piece of art. I’m speechless.

I’m at a very low point in life right now which leaves me at higher levels of emotional vulnerability, so perhaps it’s the reason why I feel like I’m hearing this in a completely new light. This just destroyed me, I am floored. I’ve always loved this album since its initial release, but it has just dawned on me how important this is.

While I admit the early critic reviews have overhyped this record to some extent, I do believe there is a fair connection to be made with comparing this album to Ok Computer. It is nowhere near the level of quality of artistic ability, but there is a common connection with the substance of both records. A Brief History Into Online Relationships is a topical approach to what can be described as 'millennial problems.' The album deals with depression, drug addiction, isolation, modernity, and ... read more

JID has a lot of lyrical ability for someone with nothing to say. This is a perfect example of style over substance, talent not equating to artistic ability, etc. While this is a good album, JID does not offer much to the album that countless other artists could have done, leaving a handful of enjoyable tracks that I will likely never return to.

There is a sort of transcendent quality with Japanese folk, particularly with the work of Ichiko Aoba, this is stunning.

A psychedelic journey that is equally uplifting as it is depressing. Woof Woof is the one of the best pop albums of the year, consisting of infectious melodies and bouncy production mixed with simplistically devistating lyricism, detailing ones internal turmoil as if they are in the midst of a mental breakdown. This is one of the most interesting albums of the year, the brief runtime begs for countless relsitens, there is a lot to take in here among the sixteen brief tracks. I can see myself ... read more

My personal favourite Deep Soul album, one of the most passionate pieces of art the genre has to offer, a timeless display of the human condition.

Much like Malibu, I find this to be a boring capsul of his influences, repeating ideas and concepts that have been done better by others. Anderson .Paak does not offer anything throughout this album that I find exciting in the slightest, it makes for easy listening and not much more.

There is an unbelievable amount of charm in Kozelek's work that I find infectious to the point of being therapeutic. He is able to find poetry in the most mundane aspects of life, such as his fondness for his socks and candles. He articulates his thoughts in a way that is coherently sporadic, which obviously should not be possible. But no, this is indeed possible. This is a mans life reflected into art, a journey into the moments of a man that one does not seek to discover.
