Tyler, the Creator returned two years after the magnificent opus IGOR, the album that cemented Tyler as one of the most extravagant contemporary artists.

The last few years of Tyler's career have been one of immense metamorphosis: the bipolar Cherry Bomb saw Tyler experiment with new techniques and although there are some successes there is also room for several failures, interestingly, in Call Me If You Get Lost (CMIYGL), Tyler addresses this, "Yeah, when I turned twenty-three that's ... read more

In case you ever wonder what would happen if QOTSA and Royal Blood had a son, Tigercub is the answer.

The band evokes the power alternative rock that was a sucess during the early 10's and give it just enough of their own insight to make a very approachable and enjoyable LP.

It has been already 20 years since the debut Songs About Jane. Since then, Maroon 5 became this incredibly annoying sell-out band that I cannot imagine anyone who hears music on a daily basis to enjoy.

JORDI keeps up with their formula - the songs are based on a disposable pop-like sound, Adam Levine exaggerates on his falsetto and the lyrics are cringe as hell. They add a couple of commercial artists, make songs based on genres that are in vogue and consequently try to murder that genre.

Listening to Peace Or Love you would never guess that Kings of Convenience's previous album was released 12 years ago.

Album 4 recaptures the band essence - it’s not exactly audacious but it neither feels stagnant. Instead, it feels like a warm welcome to a friend you haven’t seen in ages but as you start to talk it is as just as if you have seen him yesterday.

It's “suave” and sublime, although it may lead to some people feeling dissatisfied, I think it’s more ... read more

KGLW demonstrates again why they are one of the most appealing contemporary musical acts. Their 18th album (and 3rd in 1 year) brings, once again, an unexpected change in their path, but one that (somehow) completes the band's vast repertoire. A dreamy synthesizer leads the way, building a psychedelic and joyful trip: na authentic serene Summer album.KGLW demonstrates again why they are one of the most appealing contemporary musical acts.

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
