Danny Brown - Quaranta
73
VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzjNbmyqHTU

Danny Brown is a hyper-entertaining class clown, an ingenious hip hop innovator, and above all, someone who carries a deep pain wherever he goes.

This perhaps relatable personality makeup shines wonderfully throughout his phenomenal discography. XXX for instance might at first listen sound like a wonderfully drugged-out party, but any thoughtful listener could tell you it's a cry for help. Atrocity Exhibition maybe even more so. It may ... read more

Jane Remover - Census Designated
87
VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzX0QF6xXW0

This is my favorite Jane Remover album. I'm a sucker for emo chord progressions, massive shoegaze crescendos, ambitious songwriting, vulgar lyrics, janky mixing, and sensitive vocals, and Jane Remover delivers completely. I'd go as far as saying it's a shoegaze record unlike any other I've heard. While Census Designated is a sharp pivot from Jane Remover's earlier work, she clearly has maintained her glitchy production chops, as she ... read more

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - PetroDragonic Apocalypse; or, Dawn of Eternal Night: An Annihilation of Planet Earth and the Beginning of Merciless Damnation
89
VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPnrpACwOF8

While King Gizzard's first full-fledged plunge into metal Infest the Rats' Nest was pretty darn cool, it couldn't help but strike as a tad bit gimmicky. While there are clear parallels between Stoner Metal and Psychedelic Rock, the bottom line is that a psych-pop band throwing a thrash metal curve ball was always a bit too memey to really take 100000% seriously, no matter how well it actually delivered. I respected the effort but could ... read more

Foo Fighters - But Here We Are
78
VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgo_ja4OVEQ

It seems Gen Z is learning a lesson us older punks know all too well: Foo Fighters have ALWAYS been cool. This art rock stuff is what they really are all about. Yes, a significant amount of their discography is as cut-and-paste as radio rock gets. But in a way that makes them even cooler. Not only can Dave and the rest of the band make artsy indie punk bangers (See: Nirvana, early Foo Fighters, Sunny Day Real Estate, Cat Power, Queens ... read more

JPEGMAFIA & Danny Brown - SCARING THE HOES
78
First things first: SCARING THE HOES is a JPEGMAFIA project featuring Danny Brown. JPEGMAFIA does more rapping than Danny Brown. JPEGMAFIA's rapping cuts through the mix more clearly than Danny's. JPEGMAFIA produced the record, and JPEGMAFIA's unique production style is a fundamental part of the distinct JPEGMAFIA listening experience. SCARING THE HOES, ultimately, is a JPEGMAFIA experience through and through, with Danny Brown popping in to give the record a fun little twist.

I like ... read more

I can't tell whether or not you're joking with half of your reviews, but you seem to be one of the few people on this site who is capable of thinking for themselves, and I appreciate that
