Before getting into this album, I decided to listen to her Vroom Vroom EP. Some of the songs were just generic pop songs, nothing too special about them. But the first track (Vroom Vroom) was really good. So I was somewhat excited to hear this album. There's a lot of features on this album and, they don't really add much to the songs. A lot of people like Gone but, the feature kind of ruined that song for me. The features with Troye Sivan I do enjoy and, 1999 and 2099 might be my two favourite ... read more

A lot of people got mad that I didn't like Filth so, I think people are gonna be mad at me for not enjoying this album. This was even worse than Filth. The vocals on this were extremely annoying and, they all sounded the same. This wasn't heavy at all too. I guess the only heavy part was the Young God EP that came with it on spotify but, even that wasn't so heavy. They have way heavier albums that came out after this. The only good track on this was Cop and, I couldn't even remember it after I ... read more

This sounded exactly like Filth, but better. The problem I had with Filth was, the vocal were annoying, he was saying the same stuff half of the time but, I did appreciate the length. And, this album had some of the same problems but, for some reason I enjoyed it. The reason why I gave it such a low score was because, they have much better albums than this. If I only listened to this on its own and didn't listen to anymore Swans albums, it would probably get a 60. And the song Time is Money ... read more

What is this? An actual good Merzbow cover? And it's actually the right album cover size? Merzbow, god job. Anyway, I'm gonna be doing all 13 of the Japanese Birds albums. There is 2 more, one of them I might be listening to but, the other one only had 200 copies made. It's not even on AOTY. But, they were only part of an additional box set that came out (I think). This album was good. For a Merzbow album, it really surprised me. I've never really hated Merzbow. The first time I listened to ... read more

Random Album Monday #5: (I stole this idea from @Inglume, so everyone go follow him.)

This is making me really want to get into electronic music. The production on this album was really good and, there was singing on this instead of just most of the electronic albums being instrumental. This is one of the reasons why I'm so glad people are finally finding this random album button. It really finds some great albums that no one has ever really heard of before. I would definitely recommend this ... read more

This is actually a really good Swans album! Going into Swans's discography, I wasn't too excited. Filth was horrible and, I remembered the first time I listened to To Be Kind I thought it was bad. To Be Kind has grown on me after a few listens but, it still wasn't as good as people were saying it was. But, this album really surprised me! Even the song that @knewnie was hating on (You Fucking People Make Me Sick) wasn't that bad. I mean sure, that ending got a little annoying on that song with ... read more

Swans are one of those bands were sometimes I listen to them and hate their music (Filth) but, sometimes I like their music (To Be Kind and this album). I know I complain a lot about songs that are 15-20+ minutes but, I would enjoy them if they weren't so boring. This is the problem that I had with most of the tracks on this album. It's not because of the length, it's because they could've done more with the song instead of just making it so boring. Frankie M was just the same thing for 10 ... read more

Why do people hate this album? I mean, I like most pop albums that people don't like but, I was expecting this to have a 65 or 70 user score, not 59. And some people are giving this a 0. Anyway, I'm gonna split this review up into two parts. The film and the album. I know this isn't a film reviewing website, but it's part of the album.

The film:

Can we talk about how she put the entire movie FOR FREE onto youtube with no ads? I get how people can not like this movie but, you gotta appreciate ... read more

AURORA has always been one of my favourite pop/indie artists. I haven't listened to her debut album but, I will listen to it soon. For a long time, I thought Step II was better but, the more I listened to this EP the more I enjoyed it. I still do think Step II is better for some reason but, the production on this EP is much better. Some of the songs on Step II do have really good production (like The Seed) but, songs like Churchyard and Soft Universe on this EP have much better production. ... read more

I'm gonna try and do some things different with my reviews. I'm gonna write some longer ones, and today I'm gonna do a track by track review of this album.

Screen Shot - This is probably my favourite song on the album. It starts out with a nice bass line and, it keeps building up to nothing. The lyrics dont make sense at all, and they're not that good (for most of the songs too) but, it's not something you would focus on in this song.

Just a Little Boy - This is one of the songs that the ... read more

Random Album Monday #4: (I stole this idea from @Inglume, so everyone go follow him.)

So, I'm not listening to this album. I've seen the movie and it was ok I guess, but the soundtrack was not good. The Justin Timberlake song was ok at first listen but, the 7,000 more times it played on the radio, it got worse. Anyways, I should've picked another random album but I'm too lazy to listen to it since I'm currently relistening to To Be Kind (review comes out tomorrow maybe). Overall, it's an album ... read more

This album is post-rock and ambient combined. I think it works really well in my opinion. I really like it when artists branch out into other genres instead of just sticking to the same one for each album. And with this album, it feels like they went with the complete opposite genre. My biggest complaint is it could've been longer, and thats my problem with most ambient albums. For some reason, most ambient albums have really long tracks and only like 2-4 of them. But other than that, it's a ... read more

I do enjoy Birth of a New Day better but, this is still really good! I like the first track a lot and, it's probably my favourite song out of all of them. It started very calming and it turned into a dramatic ending. The second track has the same problems I had with their self-titled album, which is the weird vocals that come in once in a while. Other than that, it's a really good vaporwave album. Their last album that I haven't heard is in SJO so, I'll be reviewing it that day.

This was probably one of Madonna's better albums. It has some good songwriting and some amazing production. At some times it can sound like some of her newer albums but, she decided to stick with the sound that suits her the best. This album talks about some very personal stuff and, I feel like that's the only reason why I liked this album. Similar to how I like High as Hope so much, it's just very personal. Songs like "Mother and Father" talk about how she was raised with just a ... read more

I hate it when people listen to leaks. Especially with this album because you couldn't wait one day? Anyway, the only metal band I've ever listened to I guess would be Swans and their more post-rock so I guess this is my first metal album. I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. The critic ratings beforehand didn't make me excited since NME gave their 100th 100 of 2019!!!!! CONGRATS!!! But, I did enjoy this a lot. I've said this before but, if artists who do 10-minute songs (or more) did ... read more

Madonna.... what happened. This album was very hard to listen to all the way through. Some of the songs were dragged on for WAY TOO LONG and, it's almost an hour long. Some of these songs sound like she combined 6 songs into one and the lyrics sound like she just used random sentences and put them together in a song. Like what does she mean by "I'm gonna be africa"? Anyway, theres 1 song on here that's ok but the rest is just garbage.

Random Album Monday #3: (even tho it's wednesday)

I stole this idea from @Inglume, so everyone go follow him.

Usually, with songs that are 10-30 minutes, I tend to dislike them. Mainly because it drags on for too long but, the length on the songs here didn't bother me that much. The ending song got a little repetitive the more I listened to it but, it's still a beautiful track. It also didn't bother me that much because it was only 3 tracks. I wish the album was longer or some of the songs ... read more

If you dont know, I'm doing all of this artists discography. This is my second album I've heard from them and, it's definitely a step up from their previous self-titled album. I do enjoy the production a lot more on this album and, the songs dont drag on for too long. This is probably one of my favourite ambient albums that I've listened to but, I only just recently got into ambient music. This album does have some parts where the noises can be louder than everything else but, overall it's a ... read more

This is the second album I've heard from 2814 and, I'm really disappointed. It started out not so strong with 我愛你. Those weird moments with that guy singing was awful. This album has the same problem I have with Swans. Their songs could be shortened down to like 3-5 minutes but, they make it over 10 minutes of just the same thing. 一緒に私たちは、市内の遺跡を歩く would've been good if it didn't drag on for 14 minutes. Other than that, some of these songs are still ... read more
