How uncreative do you have to be to write a song about how wacky the internet is in 2021? Maybe that would've been an OK song idea in 2008, BUT IN 2021!????? Unacceptable. This album seems like a challenge to cram as many buzzwords into one record, ranging from Sexting to Problematic. No creativity, just essentially regurgitating viral tweets and clickbait buzzfeed headlines over mediocre synth pop.

Hey guys, isn't the pandemic s0oo0o friggin weird? And climate change is like what the ... read more

this shit is boring.

Seeing "Jack Antonoff" as a producer credit is not too different from seeing a giant stamp that says "Walmart" on your consumer product.

Sweet Trip scared the shit out of many music nerds this year with their announcement they'd be releasing a new album in 2021, over a decade since their last album You Will Never Know Why came out. Although it was cool we'd be getting more music from a great band, they stood at risk of spoiling their pretty much flawless discography. Like it's hard to think of a more consistent band than Sweet Trip, and even if a new album meant more ... read more

Bladee's new album The Fool is a relatively straightforward Bladee album, which is good, because Bladee is cute as heck and me gusta. I think I officially became drained when Bladee said he's pulling Joker cards on this album.... twice.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are fedora in epic
*lifts spork*

y'all ever heard of this epic little genre called Canterbury Scene? Well you see, about 60 years ago, British people did something unbelievably epic.... look it up.

Fast forward to today. In a world where the lamestream record labels are forcing crud pop like Olivia Rodrigo down our throats, it's only fair they throw us intellectual critical thinkers a bone too. And boy oh boy, ... read more

Negative XP is rapidly fading into irrelevancy as his music continues to be extremely dull and predictable, just like his edgy sense of humor. It's music by a dumbass made for even dumber dumbasses. Any objective listener could tell you just how unimpressive this garbage is, but because Negative XP has virtue signaled to conservatives via online misogyny and racism, he has built up a dedicated fanbase that will continue providing him ... read more

diarrhea in my fucking ear...

Wow, this is the most corporate donkey shit diarrhea album possibly to ever exist in humanity. It's like all of capitalism's contradictions were violently crammed into one 35 minute record, and no one seems to fucking care. WHere do i start....

Disney star. she's a fucking disney star.

Fuck every single god damn critically acclaimed art punk band with a whacky vocalist to come out of Europe in the past 5 years. I'm so god damn tired of it. Your music ain't bad, actually a lot of it is pretty good. But right now I have one very important message to share with you:

Let's cut the chase: this album is for men. No more of that incel virgin Pinkerton shit. Of course this album is gonna get a lot of haters since the average AOTY user is like 14 years old but what do you expect? Such is the life of an alpha, you face a ton of heat from the haters on the regular but you keep on trucking on because you never fucking quit.

What's the difference between a boy and a man anyways? Could it be the long list of ... read more

Although I think this is a bit of a step down from their debut album Somewhere City, there's really no denying Origami Angel has a ton of talent-- their mathy emo punk formula is honestly just a blast to listen to. Incorporating influences from heavier and more technical genres like metalcore and math rock and executing that flawlessly beneath their whimsical vocal melodies creates a great contrast between poppiness and heaviness that's ... read more

Willow Smith was born into the music industry ruling class with all the resources she could've ever dreamed of at her disposal. Given this privileged background as well as her past poppy output, I entered this song with an extreme level skepticism that it'd be anything other than just a typical pop song that was only "punk" aesthetically for marketing purposes (a trick the music industry often likes to employ).

Well, I have ... read more

You can either go suck off whatever pitchfork approved BULLCRAP your favorite internet forum is circlejerking as of late. Or you can actually ENJOY Linkin Park's classic debut album Hybrid Theory (possibly the best selling punk album of all time).

Choose wisely.

I'll admit it, I was initially skeptical Floating Points could pull something like this off. Putting together such massively unique yet massively talented artists together in one record could've very easily resulted in a totally incohesive and gimmicky mess, and frankly that's what I went into this album expecting. Fortunately for us, Floating Points took an incredibly delicate approach. Each musician contributes a highly minimal ... read more

The Armed and their record label will repeatedly tell you that there is nothing to worry about because they've just sold out ironically, guys. However anyone who is paying close enough attention can see they've simply decided to sell out hidden in plain sight.

I have the utmost respect for Sargent House records. I also highly respect The Armed of course. This album, however, was not the move. Hiding behind a layer of irony doesn't change the fact ... read more

When listening to Armand Hammer for the first time, you might not fully grasp what the hell is exactly going on, but you will absolutely know it's urgent. Armand Hammer are fucking smart. Their dense lyricism, unconventional production choices, and generally bizarre maneuvering throughout each of their songs make for an overwhelming sonic experience which absolutely bombards your ass with rich poetry that's as intellectual as it is ... read more

An exhausting celebration of white supremacy

If Lana Del Rey wasn't a famous musician, she'd be in your Facebook inbox trying to sell you essential oils and sharing racist dogwhistle memes on her timeline. This album is just the latest reflection of that.

It's no secret Lana Del Rey has a racism issue. From her tirade against black artists making better music than her, to her "I'm not racist because I'm friends with rappers" ... read more

Far too often do we see fantastic bands dissolve before they get to properly release all of their best-written material. There's definitely an uncountable amount of amazing-yet-unreleased songs out there we'll never get to hear because of bands prematurely coming to an end for one reason or another, and it makes me literally want to die............

Fortunately, Youth Novel's music did not have to face the same fate, and we should be ... read more
