“I want to live life and always be true
And I want to live life and be good to you
And I want to fly and never come down
And live my life and have friends around”

Story Review: Each track title included inside.

A much-needed breath of fresh air.
- January: The coldest month in Oslo.

A cold winter's day in Oslo, Norway. It’s your first day of school. ‘Don’t Panic’ you repeat in your head. The breeze absorbs you, sending shivers down your spine. The ... read more

Slathered on with 54 minutes of crack cocaine and heroin, the fucking energy in this album is incredible and such an addicting album. Expect the unexpected. Squid did not fail to impress. This is a huge must-hear album. The repeated lyrics make the tracks so unforgettable. Out of this world transitions. It's BOLD, and I am here for it.

STUNNING! A rollercoaster of emotions in this album.

Her unique style was wonderfully executed from start to finish. Celeste is a brilliant singer with a voice that soars above the rest. This was a brilliant work of art.

Not only did Celeste exceed my expectations, but she brought so much more to this album than I expected: vulnerability, passion, and heartwarming energy. Very replay-worthy. Celeste has such an excellent ... read more

The inspiration for Doji Morita’s ‘Goodbye’ album was from the death of a friend.

Doji Morita was quite an authentic musician. A quite unknown being she was.

Wait.. it’s actually REALLY good!

Maggie Lindemann a 22-year-old who peaked with her breakout song 'Pretty Girl' a pop music hit, and NOW rock and pop singer-songwriter debuts with her ‘Paranoia’ pop-rock EP. Maggie switched up with a pop-rock genre this time, altering her career and striving for her full potential.

This EP has strong and vibrant vocals, although struggles to keep a consistency towards the ending of the album. Some songs made me question.. is it rock or is ... read more

The passion and excitement.

'shame' dropping a charismatic and BOLD 41 minutes lengthed of a post-punk album. What a way to introduce an album. My insights upon this album quickly altered after fully finishing it and longness amounts of reflecting. As I decided to endure a listen to this album not aware of its genre, just for the jolt of surprise. When beginning my first listen to this album, the sense of the oozing power coming out of the vocals and the constant element of surprise as the ... read more
