So much time has passed since the last time that I posted an album review, wow! Anyway, let's begin, shall we?

Clairo is a young bedroom pop artist, and Sling is her sophmore release. I haven't listened to Immunity or diary001 or anything else that she's done, really, up until this point. This album got tons of hype and attention all over the internet, and Clairo got priased on how much she matured from Immunity to Sling. As said, I haven't listened to Immunity so there won't be any ... read more

1989 is Taylor Swift's turn from country-pop to pop, getting much wider mainstream recognition, winning the Grammy for best album of the year and definitely being her most successful album at the time of its release. With HUGE singles chart-wise like Shake it Off, Bad Blood and Blank Space, she was getting more attention than ever before. btw, Rolling Stone put this album at 393 on the top 500 album oat list they released in 2020.
And you know who Taylor is, I'm sure, so no long artist ... read more

wow. This album has grown SO much on me since I've heard it for the first time last week. I've listened to this album around 4 or 5 times, and each time it grew on me. And I don't have any shoegaze experience except for deathconciousness, so I didn't know what to expect, but this project feels like a perfect entry to this type of music.

My Bloody Valentine is an Irish shoegaze band, and its considered to be one of the greatest shoegaze bands ever. Shoegaze, btw, is like a "wall of ... read more

Time to review one of the most hyped and critically accliamed albums of this year so far - Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. SIMBI, for short, by Little Simz.

Little Simz is a UK rapper, and SIMBI (you could say that it's a self-titled record in a way XD) is her fourth full length project. This album preceeds the great, raw and energetic GREY Area, her third album that was released in 2019. I absolutely love GREY Area, so I was quite hyped when Introvert, the lead single and the intro track ... read more

So, I've been planning for quite some time now to write a proper review for this album, since it's one of my favorites, but it just didn't happen up until now, I guess. Today I've listened to the CD again, and I had this click with one of the songs - just realised something that I haven't before - so, yeah, thought it would be a good time to review this LP.

LCD Sounsystem is a New York based Dance-Punk band, with James Murphy as a frontman. Murphy is also a songwriter and a producer, most ... read more

So, that's the third Taylor Swift project that I've listened to with my friend :) btw, completely unintentionally, it turned out that we were listening to the record on its second anniversary XD Was quite a surprise for both of us, and I think that it's pretty cool.

You know who Taylor is, no need to do a lengthy introduction - one of the most well known pop artists in the whole world, began as a country-pop artist, but with time we've seen her experimenting with some other things - dubstep, ... read more

The trigger that got me into Bjork was a recommendation I got on this project, Vespertine. I wanted to get to know Bjork first, since Vespertine is considered to be one of her best album, so I started from Debut, and was pleasently surprised at how good it was for a first proper release. Post was colorful, more experimental, and had better storytelling than Debut has, and Homogenic took it all even further, with better singing, and much more details production-wise. And now, I finally got here, ... read more

The first metal project that I review!! How fun. Didn't think about it until I sat down to write this review.

So, System of a Down is an American band that classifies as Nu Metal, but honestly, in my opinion, they are far from being only a generic, trend-riding Nu Metal act. They have such a unique energy, and generally their approach to Metal is not a thing that is easy to find. All of the band members are of Armenian ethnicity, and it has a lot of impact on their songwriting and musical ... read more

So, reputation is the second Taylor Swift album that I review here, after Red. My expectations were pretty low, since almost every review I've heard about this record was pretty negative, and sadly this record wasn't much better than its reputation (badum tss). Okay, sorry, let's continue.

reputation (written all with lowercase letters) is Taylor's sixth studio album, after a three year long silence from her.
It seems like this album was a really big project, both for Taylor and the label - ... read more

Yo, at the time I'm writing this review I think that clipping. are my most reviewed artist XD Well, I think they deserve it.

So, clipping, experimental noise-hop trio, and I'd say that they've slowly built one of the most consistent hip-hop discographies of the last decade. Wriggle is an EP that they dropped in 2016, between CLPPNG to Splendor & Misery. So, is it has quality content, just as their main projects, or does it fall short and contains only mid material? Well, let's dive into ... read more

Yeah, I'm late a bit but whatever. Better late than never :)

So, Tyler Okonma, aka Tyler, the Creator, slowly became one of the most critically acclaimed rappers of the last couple of years. Flower Boy kinda blew a lot of people away back in 2017, and IGOR did even more in 2019, and won a Grammy for best rap album for 2020 (the Grammys are kinda shit tho, but his performance there was fucking phenomenal). After IGOR dropped, the next album was highly, highly aniticipated, and now that we ... read more

Yeah, this IS it. I fucking love this album so fucking much. Okay, yeah, sorry, this album is one of my favs.

Anyway, The Strokes are a rock band (mainly garage rock/post punk revival stuff) from NYC, and Is This It is their debut LP. It's still regarded to this day as a classic, one of the best rock albums of the 2000's, and it influenced the rock scene so much during this era. Arctic Monkeys wouldn't be Arctic Monkeys without The Strokes. So, as said, this album is very critically acclaimed. ... read more

So, Taylor Swift is not an artist for which I really cared until Folklore, which was surprisingly decent, and I've only heard Red because of the same reason I gave Folklore a chance - a good friend of mine, which is really into TS. And she suggested that we'll listen to her discog together lately, and we started off from Red (so expect more TS reviews in the near future).

ANYWAY, I don't really need to introduce Taylor Swift, am I? She's one of the most popular pop artists out there, her ... read more

Radiohead's Kid A, the band's fourth full-length project, is known to this day as one of the greatest left turns in history. And you know what? I can totally agree with that. This album is fucking great.

So, my first Radiohead review! Let's write a bit of background. Radiohead are a British band with somewhat of a legendary status. Music nerds love 'em, critics adore them, and you know what? Cause Radiohead is one of the most consistent, versatile and tight bands out there. They have three ... read more

The first listen I thought it was kinda nice and that's it, but hey, it's pretty good.

So, boygenius is a trio of three indie-singer-songwriter-depressed artists, which are Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker. I only know some of Phoebe's music, never heard any of the other ones before, so I was quite curious about the sound and vibe of this thing, and, yeah. Pretty much what you would expect, but really well done.

This EP is mainly about depression, unstable mental health and ... read more

I like this album a lot, and I think that it'll probably grow on me with time as well.

Sun Kil Moon, or Mark Kozelek, is an american singer-songwriter with quite a consistent reputation to his records, since the 90's. However, I don't really have a whole lot to say about him cause Benji is the first record of his that I gave a listen to, so let's dive right into the review.

Benji is a projects that examines grief, melancholy, and begs the question - why? What's behing all of this? Why do ... read more

Okay, time for me to review the second Civilisation EP! I liked the first one, and I like this one too, so let's dive into it.

Kero Kero Bonito are a pop trio (mainly synthpop, electropop, stuff like that) from Britain, and they're known for their anime-girl-singing-about-dark-stuff vibe, great production and Death Grips loving fanbase. I don't have a whole lot to say about them as a band, I've only heard one other EP from them, so let's go on to the actual review.

So, what do I think about ... read more

My first Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album, and holy shit. That was...interesting, to say the least.

Nick Cave is an Austrailian singer-songwriter, and he has a very unique vibe and a very consistent reputation. From what I heard before I've got to listen to Let Love In, I found out that he and the Bad Seeds has had a lot of sound changes throughout the years, and that Let Love In is generally considered to be one of his best projects, and a good entry point to his discography, so...here I ... read more

...Like Clockwork by Queens of the Stone Age has to be one of the best rock albums of the last decade. I mean, top 20 at the very least.

Queens of the Stone Age are a hard rock/stoner rock band with an ever-changing line up, I'd say, except for Josh Homme who's always the lead vocalist (and one hell of a vocalist, I'd say). This specific album was released after a long, long silence from the band (6 years) and it's considered as one of their darkest, most melancholic records - and one of ... read more

Yeah, I know I'm late XD Don't look it me that way! I intended to review this project weeks ago, but I wanted to give it more time and I actually kinda forgot about it. But yet, lately I've came back to this album once more, and I had the click, ladies and gentelmen. This album is the most consistent, and the best, Bjork album I've reviewed so far.

Anyway, I don't think that I need to introduce Bjork once again, so I'll only do it briefly. She's an Icelandic singer-songwriter, and this is her ... read more
