Mannequin Pussy - I Got Heaven
70
that's... an interesting cover
Faye Webster - Underdressed at the Symphony

It's an odd album. At some points, it's very calm and down to earth and threatens to put me to sleep (in a good way), but then at other times it seems to be reaching for more (such as the Lil Yachty feature, did not expect that) but doesn't really have a method to the madness. I think if she was able to add a bit more structure to what can only be described as her inner monologue, it would've gone a long way.
Meek Mill - HEATHENISM
NR
i mean you can do it with whoever you want... but why'd it have to be with the music industry equivalent of epstein
Mk.gee - Two Star & The Dream Police

It's an interesting record but I feel at times it suffers from trying to accomplish too much and can't find its identity.
Grave Guy - Sludgebath

I have today discovered Industrial Metal x Noise Rock is not my type of music. I'm definitely a fan of noise rock, but the addition of the heavy sounds of industrial metal kind of ruin the experience for me. However, I did really like the opening track, Nudeth.

'Favorites' last 5 >90

My rating scale is hard to quantify, maybe linear from 0-70 and then grows exponentially 75 onwards. Increments of 5 so I don't go insane.

100 An artist's full potential on full display.
90 - 95 A work of art.
80 - 85 Beautifully crafted, with a few issues.
70 - 75 Excellently made, but will not be in my rotation.
50 - 65 Quite average.
<45 Painful to listen to at times.
