Taylor Swift - Midnights
76
A good synth-pop album. You will not hear any experiments from such a titan of the industry on this one, rather a combination of several of her previous projects (especially Lover (2019) and reputation (2017)).

I like the overall vibe of the album. Indeed, you want to dance to it at midnight after a hard day's work. However, I lacked more detailed instrumentals. The music on this album does not create the desired aftertaste.

At some point, all the songs merge too much into one long boring ... read more

SEULGI - 28 Reasons
90
An extremely strong debut. I was quite skeptical about the solo debut of the member, when everyone is waiting for Red Velvet's comeback, but I was delighted from the first teaser. SEULGI is a very talented artist, so I was afraid that the release would not match her level. Fortunately, the EP turned out to be very powerful.

"28 Reasons" is an incredible single. Maybe I missed the climax in the instrumental a bit, but the track itself is as seductive as possible. A good choice for a ... read more

Björk - Fossora
85
The comeback of the real art pop legend. Björk has always been a very mysterious artist to me. I heard a lot about her, but I couldn't grow up to her music. It was too futuristic and experimental for me. Therefore, Fossora was my first serious listening to this legend.

It is magic in audio format. How I like the folk motifs and the sound of the clarinet, which are perfectly combined with the characteristic voice of Björk. Listening to this album, I seem to be transported to the ... read more

BLACKPINK - BORN PINK
42
The biggest disappointment of the year. I don't even know where to start because almost everything is terrible. First of all, I like BLACKPINK, the members and their songs. Like many, I was really looking forward to the return of such titans. In 2 years, release an album with 8 songs, where one track is a ROSE solo, the other is a leaked demo from 2020. Tasteless teasers, uninteresting clips, boring era — and these are not all the bad aspects.

I can highlight several positive points. The ... read more

JID - The Forever Story
94
I first learned about JID when I saw him on Dua Lipa's album. At the time I thought he is noname, but this release completely changed my opinion about the rapper.

• I immediately paid attention to the rapper's flow. It's just FIRE. I like it when rappers don't overuse autotune. JID so confidently changes speed, rhythm, emotions. That's how rap should be. He also has cool vocals (for example, the track "Kody Blu 31").

• Lyrics are a separate point to stop. All his lyrics ... read more
