Porter Robinson, 2020

I felt my whole body light up. I felt an intense frisson as I blasted the volume right into my ears. I’d never felt this happy in a long time. I’d never felt this intense amount of euphoria simply from listening to a song.

What I’m describing is my immediate response to listening to Get Your Wish by ... read more

My hype is restored!

My problems with Lumberjack mainly stemmed from the awkward synth in the background and vocals that sounded so bored and lifeless. I also was disappointed he didn't evolve Igor's lush sound.

You should really read into the lyrics of LUCY songs, they graduate from ominous to dark

It’s “Risk-Are” not “risk-er”

I can’t write reviews but I try anyways. Don't overthink my ratings. I know they don't make sense. I also change them way too often so that’s cool.
