Firstly, as an introduction, I wanted to express my grief and give some appreciation for MF DOOM, before jumping onto the review of the actual album. MF DOOM was one of the most beloved and important rappers of all time, personally my favorite and has shaped up my music taste to be what it is today, this record and "Madvillainy" in particular have sparked my interest and passion for music as an art form as a whole and have led me to discover so many other incredible LPs. I'm still ... read more

Charli XCX’s latest effort lingers along the same lines of the forward-thinking hyperpop layout that she has built for herself over the years and particularly pioneered, culminating into this expressive quarantine record; one of the most scrupulous to come out of that interval, for that matter. Albeit a bit cautious with its experimentations, as it could’ve dived deeper into stylistic compositions that she hasn’t crashed with yet, “how i’m feeling now” ... read more

With this release slowthai only reassures that all of the daring and unorthodox ideas which inundated his celebrated debut album have ran perilously thin. “TYRON” finds him recycling trivial trap and pop rap tropes and only without throwing into the mix the slightest of originality. Not only does slowthai not reinvent upon the mainstream formula, but he also doesn’t even achieve a collection of tracks that are properly pieced together with addictive and accessible patterns, ... read more

With this release they have stepped out of their comfort zone considerably, initiating in this vapoury and necromantic funk rock design, not while maintaining distance from other branches, but also deviating vastly from their ... read more

Moses Sumney had always been someone who sought to stand out from the crowd. Whether it was through his music, the way he had presented himself as a human being or mirrored in some of the disruptive events that may have preceded his long-awaited and merited breakthrough into the scene, the recipe was one to look out for, as it was implying success. He wasn’t an individual that was doing one’s utmost to conform to stereotypes or social norms; he was aiming to break the mould. He ... read more

Black Country, New Road have been quite an anomaly within the industry leading up to their debut album. Despite only originating in 2018, deriving from a malfunctioning act that was broken apart due to allegations, and only possessing a very compact catalog, composed of a mere collection of 4 singles, they have acquired a sizeable following, especially within a rather particular subsection of music listeners. This swiftly obtained fan base is only merited, as they have proceeded cautiously into ... read more
