After listening to this album twice, I have gotta say, I do not get where the Polo G hate comes from. It has come to my attention that Polo G is definitely one of the most overhated rappers in the game right now, and this album certainly shows why he doesn’t deserve all the hate.

It’s understandable why some people may have an issue with Polo G for his lack of authenticity with his production choices and use of instrumentals, as the joke “Piano G” references the amount ... read more

Quick review for this one, but with this album, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard continue to showcase themselves as one of the most diverse and consistent modern rock bands not just in Australia, but of all time.

After the band ended their trilogy that began in 2017 with their ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ album to their previous two albums ‘KG’ and ‘LW’, the band have returned once again to craft a project consisting of influences of dream pop, synth and ... read more

The Lord has GIVEN US THE RETURN OF LORDE. Or... has Lorde given US the Lord?? 😳😳

We are now entering that rare moment that has only happened once every 4 years, the Lorde era. 2013 we had Pure Heroine, a debut album that bought Lorde to both mainstream success and widespread attention to the music community with a style that embedded elements of Dream pop and electro pop and some live shows before disappearing and reappearing in 2017 with Melodrama, easily one of the greatest pop albums ... read more

If there is one simple word to describe this album; overrated.

I have never been the hugest Wolf Alice fan, but I had high expectations going into this album due to the widespread critical reception it has been gaining the past week, but after about 3 listens of this thing, I still fail to see what the hype is all about.

This is by no means a bad album, as there are still some good spots, more specifically towards the back end, such as the gorgeously arranged ‘Feeling Myself’ ... read more

British Post Rock, Math Rock, Experimental, New Wave (whatever they are) band Black Midi, comprising of 4 young fresh adult rockers; Geordie Greep on lead guitar and vocals, Cameron Picton on backing vocals (who also provides lead vocals for two tracks on this new release) and jazz influenced Morgan Simpson on drums, and Matt Kwasniewski-Kelvin who is currently on hiatus and is not credited on this album. Forming fresh out of high school, this young band set out to formulate a name for ... read more

18 Year old California actress turned singer and songwriter, Olivia Rodrigo, began her year by dropping one of the years biggest and most cultural pop singles and one of the most successful debut pop singles to ever release. ‘Drivers Licence’ derived from this current growing trend of bedroom pop mixed with elements of indie pop and folk and Taylor Swift and Lorde inspired vocals and inflections. Rodrigo really showed that she wanted to introduce the world to her talent and her true ... read more

And most people who like him are the 12 year olds who seeks to find someone who acts depressed in there music yet sounds like 5 other motherfuckers they’ve listened to yet so many of them almost act like they refuse to listen to rappers over the age of 23 which I don’t get. Earl Sweatshirt is so much better, if you haven’t checked him out, I recommend you do

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
