Note: Hello there! Just wanted to let you know that this is my first full review, like, ever, so it might miss some elements worth noting on the album. For that, I truly apologize. Enjoy! :)

Her long-awaited album Solar Power radiates with privileged, sun-kissed bliss that arises from the revelations of growth and sorrow. Though emerged with a more toned-down beat, there are some charming and comforting moments throughout the album, representing Lorde’s compelling approach to ... read more

The unfortunate heartbreak, the turmoil in the cusp of adolescence, and the emotional roller coaster throughout the breakup—π˜šπ˜–π˜œπ˜™ by new rising star Olivia Rodrigo is miles away from bad. From chart-topping ballad ‘drivers license’ to catchy punk-rock ‘good 4 u’, the album contains an eclectic selection of genres she’s earnest to undertake. We see her exploring as an amateur artist, and if you crumble down the fast-paced fame she’s received, ... read more

A vengeance for the gratuitous hatred it is. The slow progression doesn’t seem to cripple the holistic experience much—if you are a fan of poetically-written ballads.

“You don’t know me better than they do, baby,” she sings on π˜‰π˜­π˜’π˜€π˜¬ π˜‰π˜’π˜΅π˜©π˜ͺ𝘯𝘨 𝘚𝘢π˜ͺ𝘡, a gloriously-sooted track of retaliation, you may say. She’s not holding back her discomfort with the internet’s maltreatment anymore. After many unwanted ... read more

Traumatic and macabre, 𝘜𝘭𝘡𝘳𝘒𝘷π˜ͺ𝘰𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘀𝘦 is a proclamation of unjustified violence, and she vowed to avenge for all she’d suffered. But that determination was lost in love, one that impeded her holy grail and destroyed her soul. In the glamor of vintage rock, she took a step forward with discernible, unnerving haziness that sometimes undermines its gloomy atmosphere.

Note: As promised, I'll celebrate my 10-follower milestone by revisiting a stunning album, Punisher, by Phoebe Bridgers. Thank you once again for appreciating my reviews!

It’s like a tumultuous journey, listening from the opening track π˜‹π˜π˜‹ π˜”π˜¦π˜―π˜Ά and the closing 𝘐 π˜’π˜―π˜°π˜Έ 𝘡𝘩𝘦 𝘌𝘯π˜₯. Her character gracefully develops as each song passes on to another, growing up little by little as she discovers new revelations. Phoebe eloquently expresses ... read more

β€ͺDesperate to be innovative, Coldplay takes a fly into space, watching little stars glow. The fictional planets they created seem to represent nothing but an overreach of something meaningful, its pretense lost in their trite music, not to mention their poorly mixed production. It’s a disappointment to witness such a nosedive after the release of their fantastic single β€¬π˜Šπ˜°π˜­π˜°π˜³π˜’π˜΅π˜Άπ˜³π˜’β€ͺ.‬
