My experience with Logic's music might not have been as long as many other people's have; in fact I only started listening to him in 2018 with his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape; but I'm not lying when I say he's possibly the artist that really got me into hip hop; and even the music world in general. I fell in love with his music; his personality, lyrics and production just really appealed to me at the time. Albums like Under Pressure and The Incredible True Story are what made me want to listen ... read more

Skeleton Tree is the Bad Seeds' most bleak, fragile, and somber album to date. It's the sound of floating in nothing but darkness, basically being blanketed by the void. Surrounded by spacey and chilling droning synths and very light use of live instrumentation, Nick delivers some of the most personal and devastating lyricism in his whole career throughout the 39 minutes of runtime, his shortest album to date. Haunted by the passing of Nick's teenage son Arthur Cave just near the end of this ... read more

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds divert from their more rock-fueled venture Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!! and deliver one of their most somber and haunting albums in quite a while. Push The Sky Away proves that even 15 albums into their discography, they're still able to further innovate their sound and in turn still make an incredibly solid and beautifully produced album in the process. The instrumentation's usage of pianos, light guitars, strings and even synths in some instances I think really help back ... read more

"Oh yeah, what a good old-fashioned rockin' and, rollin' and, roll-lickin' and, rock...lickin' and, i-it's kind of a comedown after how great the last album was but still, rocks... album." ~MicTheSnare, 2019

Saying a decently strong 7/10 is a comedown isn't saying a whole lot about the album however as Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! is still a really good album from the Bad Seeds that truly rocks out. It's sort of a return to their post-punk roots with a cleaner and more polished rock sound, ... read more

The Bad Seeds are back, baby! Coming just one year after Nocturama, the band release a double album spanning 17 tracks which sort of blurs the line between their more piano-ballad driven work and the more rock themed side of their work; and might I say, they do it really well. Abattoir Blues / The Lyre Of Orpheus is a massive return to form for the band sound wise and lyrically, and maybe even one of my favourite albums from them. Not only does it justify its 70 minute length, but it also ... read more

(Note: I accidentally deleted my old review so here's the closest I could do to rewrite it. RIP)

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. It's not mind-blowing-ly awful, I mean sound wise it sounds decent but there's just nothing special about it since every track sounds nearly identical with the same generic R&B trap beat and ... read more

Hello there! My friends Joe and John just released their first track under the pseudonym ‘2jStreet’. The song is called ‘Came For This’ and I’m sure they’d really appreciate if you gave it a listen and a rating. Any feedback, good or bad I’m sure they would appreciate as well. Thanks. https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/264652-2jstreet-came-for-this.php
