Merry Christmas and happy New Year to everyone!
This will probably be my last review in 2020, so thank you all very much for following, reading and liking my reviews. Here's to a better year, with great music!


António Variações is one of the greatest voices that ever graced Portugal.
Throughout his painfully short career, he revolutionised the pop landscape in the 1980s musically and morally, opening the audience's horizons to new sounds and the acceptance of queer ... read more

My personal favourite record of this incredible duo.

It's their second album after returning to the music industry as a duo (with "Sounds Of Silence", which includes the timeless classic that gives the album its name), and while it's their shortest project it shows huge refinement and upgrade to the duo's sound and lyrical material.

The opener "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" is one of their greatest hits, as well as one of their most atmospheric tracks with its lyrics of ... read more

Weezer went orchestral
Weezer went orchestral


For the past few years Weezer has been one of the bands I most enjoyed making fun of. You're allowed to call me stupid, since my experience with the band's catalog is very short (their debut, half of "Pinkerton" and "Everything Will Be Alright In The End").

After two major let-downs in 2019, the band is back this year with two records. "OK Human" is the first, even though it was announced shortly before its ... read more

✨😍 Vive la resistance 😍✨


Coldplay's fourth studio album is seen by most as the start of their downfall as a respectful and original band. I agree, while I also think this is one of their best.
In fact, the band would take a whole decade to make an album nearly as good as this one.

Like its title and cover art clearly show, the sound landscape of the record takes the French revolution and the feelings of revolt and constant change as central topics of inspiration.

My 𝟭𝟬𝟬𝘁𝗵 review!
Thank you to everyone that followed me and reacted on my reviews for the past year I've been here, it really means a lot!


Yup. That album. The album with the funny triangle. The album you see on every store, on every damn music t-shirt and social media post about how old music is so much better.

I can't quite remember the first time I listened to this record, but I do remember its impact on me. I really don't want to sound based or cringey, but I'd be lying ... read more

Madlib doesn't require introductions as he's one of the most influential producers in hip-hop genre, crafting some of the genre's best works of the past 20 years.
In 2021 he releases "Sound Ancestors", a solo record with Four Tet as the main producer and collaborator throughout its long process of planning and recording.

When I first saw its title and album cover, I thought it would consist of a stripped back, skeletal sound. I wasn't exactly wrong.

For the most part the record ... read more

2020 has been a huge roadblock, a year that a lot of people would want to forget. Filled with hardships and pain. As this year is coming to a close, I wanted to ask a question for a list. What song would you listen to, to end the year off entirely? It can either be a send-off song, or a song that you would listen to in high hopes for 2021. Hope I'm not bothering, and if you respond, thanks for the help!
