For Pink Floyd's debut album, on first impressions I wasn't expecting an awful lot from it as it didn't look like their usual prog rock sound but I really didn't expect an album this strange and ambitious! "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" starts with a psychedelic pop sound that's kind of reminiscent of something the Beatles would make, but in the middle it just completely switches up on you with 3 tracks of improvisational rock. One of them's not that great and the other two are ... read more

This sounds like a proto-punk album... on several layers of acid. It's easily one of the weirdest and freakiest rock albums I've ever heard. Once you think it's starting to sound normal it transitions into a free-form freak out track (that's what they're called in this album) and it all begins to fall apart and turn into pure insanity. It's a wild-ass experience, and I think you'll just need to listen yourself to get what I mean.

damn its super wild how the cover art predicted the colour of the overall score

Justin's vocals are definitely at some of his best; I won't lie; but it doesn't save how flavorless and dull this album is.

Well, that was one of the strangest albums I've ever heard.

Having heard of this band through that Erratas conspiracy, I was inspired to check their album "Cortex Rampage" out and let me tell you, it's really something else. I don't even know how to explain it; it's like a mixture of Death Grips, an even more punk attitude and elements of... dark ambient? From what I've gathered, it's like an instrumental experimental hip hop album; and I think if MC Ride was on some of these ... read more

The Slow Rush isn't as immediately gratifying or extraordinary as Lonerism or Currents, but it expands on the atmosphere Currents had set up and steers it in a more synth-heavy disco type of direction that focuses more on being catchy than it does building up massive and emotionally impactful atmospheres like he usually does. Yet, Kevin still doesn't misstep as this is still an amazing album from him all over the board. He immaculately pulls off that sound and creates a really danceable album ... read more

Music's cool. And with that subjective opinion I have just laid out for your eyes to see in mind, I like to listen to it and rate it. I also make YouTube videos if you want to see those.
