Pinned Review

my bloody valentine - loveless
100
For my 100th review I wanted to talk about an album that means a lot me, and the obvious pick of the bunch is My Bloody Valentine's 'Loveless', my favourite album of all time.

My history with this album started when I was around 14, I was in a bookstore and I saw one of those 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die books, and decided: "why not?". To give more context, at the time my musical taste was far from what it is today. I tended to avoid anything that wasn't classic rock like ... read more

Gilla Band - Most Normal
90
Gilla Band, formerly known as Girl Band, were always a band I saw incredible potential in, a potential that shone through at times on their first two records but was ultimately dragged down by various things. Their debut, 'Holding Hands with Jamie', had some brilliant ideas and really was, all things considered, a good debut album, but ultimately, it's poor production really took the edge off a lot of its noise rock elements, and the band hadn't yet found their space in that rather daunting ... read more
Alvvays - Blue Rev
90
After a long five-year wait, Canadian indie pop outfit Alvvays have finally gifted us with their third studio album, 'Blue Rev', a more than worthy new addition to their unbelievably consistent discography.

To anyone who knows me, the fact that I am absolutely over the moon right now is no surprise. Both of the band's self-titled debut and their sophomore, 'Antisocialites', cracked the top fifteen of my end-of-decade list for the 2010s and the latter of which most certainly ranks among the ... read more

Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl
80
Bold and unapologetic are two words which best encapsulate Rina Sawayama's music and ever since I first heard her debut EP, 'RINA', all the way back in 2017, I've been absolutely enamored by her work. In my eyes, she is the quintessential pop star of the last decade, a beacon of expressing sheer emotion and uncaged artistic freedom through the vessels of contemporary pop and R&B.

Now, if we look back at the two words I mentioned before: bold and unapologetic, I don't think any single ... read more

Nirvana - In Utero
90
'Nevermind', as far as what the general public had been accustomed to hearing on the radio, was brutally raw, angsty and ferociously loud. However, when you look at the band's roots in the Seattle underground scene and at their debut Bleach, there is a clear shift to be heard on 'Nevermind', a shift towards something that underneath all those aforementioned qualities proved to also check a lot of boxes when it came to general accessibility.

While 'Nevermind' was not exactly accessible in a ... read more

Yard Act - The Overload
70
While post-punk isn't a genre that always prided itself on its complexity, the sheer amount of trailblazing bands releasing music in the genre in recent years has certainly made it feel like up-and-coming post-punk bands have an extra hurdle to overcome as expectations are higher than ever. I myself have in recent years brushed aside albums from bands like Shame and Viagra Boys as I didn't find they brought forward anything that made them unique and stand-out among contemporaries and while in a ... read more
