The concept of having an album represent everybody in the world; every race, religion, colour, creed and sexual orientation represented and given a point of view in this singular album is certainly an ambitious one, but unfortunately one that seems destined for failure. Logic's central message of peace, love and positivity is in full force on Everybody, with lyrics discussing systemic racism in America, his issues with growing up and being biracial... and another song about that... another one ... read more

[Genre: Ethereal Wave]

Well, that was nothing short of magical.

Cocteau Twins' Treasure is cold, ethereal and magical, and to me it describes the feeling of either of these two things; walking through a forest trail during the snow, or slow-dancing in an empty hall during a blizzard. It strikes this great balance between feeling dark and moody while also being cheerful and full of spirit.

[Genre: Emo Rap]

Yeah, it's emo rap music alright. Some pretty weak emo rap music.

Okay, I didn't want to start the review with a one-liner like that cause I have a bit more to say than just that, but I'm all about consistency, y'know? Anyway, what I can say about Lil Peep's Crybaby is that more than anything; and this can also be applied to Peep's music in general; I respect what it's going for. In concept, the mixture of cloudy trap music and emo music sounds like something that should ... read more

[Genre: Emo]

Yeah, it's emo music alright. Some seriously great emo music!

I have been familiar with Brand New but hadn't got to listening to any of their stuff, but The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me sure gave me a reason to do so! This album is believed to be one of the greatest emo albums of all time, and although I'm no expert on emo music I can absolutely see why. From start to finish, this album packs a punch with the heavy and lush instrumentation, Jesse Lacey's impactful vocals ... read more

I don't think it's any mystery that Maroon 5 don't have the best reputation on this site, nor in the music community in general. A lot of what they've made over the past decade is basically just radio filler specifically tailored towards the trends of that time, perfectly fitting into the category of "Music that sounds enough like nothing that people won't object to it and it'll end up getting popular anyway because of it." Like, ask yourself: Who exactly was "Don't Wanna ... read more

Nov 18, 2020
If you were to rate everything out of ten, it would just be 1.6 + 1.5 + 1.4 and so on. That's how I got my 10s, when all of those aspects are literally perfect on a project.
