A somewhat clandestine effort that supplys are calming atmosphere that modern classical lovers should get a kick out of. I guess for me when the cover is more interesting than some of the music I know that I'll never truly get behind an album like this it doesn't mean I can't appreciate and hold it in fair regard. Neufeld's playing, as well as the pacing in the nine minute 'Tumble Down the Undecided' gets a special mention

It's more lyrically and poetry orientated than YQIAR, so it's falways going to get less attention in general than its predecessor. But this new Sons of Kemet record still has plenty of empowering instrumentals and ideas, aided by the continuation of a world where little has substantially improved in terms of what the album intends to convey.

It is J. Cole's least corny project in a long time, so I'll give him that. Some of the beats are fairly clean and unique although the mixing is all over the place- sometimes fine but sometimes it way overshoots the mark. You could say that this a somewhat safe and unambitious effort too, and I wouldn't be opposed to disagree. It's alright - again - Cole gets clowned on a lot but he's never made a properly bad album, and this doesn't change the trend.

Nears 'Here Comes the Cowboy' levels of flatness and monotony. If these covers are definitively blues then fine, some people may appreaciate it, but there is nothing interesting at all of note on the entire album. The song performances are lifeless and unlike previous Black Keys hits there is little in the way of catchiness and vocal highs.

It's a confident and intriguingly produced and crafted pop album. Although somewhere along the line between the frequent high-pitched electronic club passages and fairly convential latin pop songwriting there exists some incongruity. I enjoy the fact that this sounds different from its contemporaries but the sound can get jarring at times, as much as I don't think it should.

Hi, I am working on a list and I would like to have as much views as I can. Here is my question, what are your top 3 albums from the last decade (January 2010 to dec 2019). I am not interest in what critics said or which ones were the most praised albums from that period, I want to know about your personal list. I will really appreciate your help. Cheers mate!

I'll be doing a best list for each year. With the past few years given that I've listened to way more stuff it'll be a top 100, (could be a top 200 but I need time) and progressing back through time ...
