Back with their first full-length record since 2015's "A Head Full of Dreams", Coldplay promised a more "experimental" approach to this new project, which excited the absolute hell out of me. If that 2015 album made one thing clear, it was that Coldplay was quickly stagnating as a group and needed a breath of fresh air; they needed to go out of their comfort zone to recapture the magic of their 2008-2014 discography. After listening through the album a few times, It's clear ... read more

clipping. is something of an anomaly in modern rap music. A noise rap group comprised of 2 knowledgeable and talented producers heavily influenced by music concrète and a rapper with Broadway experience is not a combination I ever expected to see from a group in any genre, but they coalesce to form one of the most engaging rap acts I've had the pleasure of listening to. Their 2016 record "Splendor and Misery" is my favorite rap album in existence, characterized by cold, ... read more

I've been a fan of Cashmere Cat's productions dating back to the Mirror Maru EP days, so I was understandably excited to hear a new project from him , especially one that seemed to be more personal and self-reflective than his prior releases.

His previous record 9 was occasionally fun, but it felt more like a ... read more

By now, Illenium has carved a place out for himself in the modern electro-pop scene alongside acts like The Chainsmokers and Said The Sky, but unfortunately his rise to mainstream relevance has resulted in a more watered-down, flimsy approach to composition and production. About 70% of this album feels gratuitous, consisting either of uninspired re-treads or needless filler. There is some enjoyment to be had here, as tracks like Good Things Fall Apart, Sad Songs and In Your Arms capitalize on ... read more

With each new album, it has felt as though Bon Iver has taken noticeable steps towards an ultimate destination. The lostlorn warmth of "For Emma, Forever Ago", the sweeping orchestrations of "Bon Iver, Bon Iver", and the electronic whirring of "22, A Million" have all felt like small steps towards a greater vision. With "i,i", it feels like Justin has realized that vision. This record is an amalgamation of the best defining characteristics of his three ... read more
