Ween - Live in Chicago
The most fun live album in existence, I couldn't hide my smile listening to this. Ween were at the hight of their technical ability and songwriting at this point, and it shows.

Deaner's guitar solo's are legendary on this btw, a must listen if you like Ween

John Frusciante - Curtains
If there's one album that has hit me in the deepest way possible, both lyrically and musically, it's Curtains. Everything Frusciante makes is filled with honesty and passion, but this album just hits differently.

I think it's the simplicity of it that turns it into such a personal listening experience. Every dynamic, every chord change, transition from quiet to loud are all based on pure feeling. It exposes the personal topics even more. He talks about feelings of isolation, depersonalization ... read more

Pink Floyd - Meddle
Easily their most laid back cut (from what I've heard)

Pink Floyd is a band I don't talk about often, but they do have a lot of emotional value to me. They're the perfect band to listen to when you just want to dissociate for a while. It's easy to get lost in their psychedelic soundscapes, and just think about life.

That melancholy and slight existential dread is perfectly captured on Meddle. The first half of the album is easy on the ear, and almost feels like home. Even Seamus, the most ... read more

Ween - The Mollusk
About time to give this masterpiece the review that it deserves

So, I've always loved this album. It's weird, mysterious, colorful and hilarious at the same time. But it recently hit me how much I truly love it. It just perfectly hits the mark of everything I look for in an album: it has a very immersive and consistent concept, where it feels as if you're swimming through never ending waves of oceanic sounds, cool sea breezes and whales with polka dot tails. It constantly innovates on itself, ... read more

Easy Star All-Stars - Radiodread
So, this is a reggae/ska/dub cover album of the legendary OK Computer. How good could something like this possibly be?

Well, surprisingly good actually. Really good to be honest. I'm surprised of how much I enjoyed this. Hearing this album played with trumpets and syncopated beats gives a very different perspective on this classic. It made me appreciate the original album in a different way. The genius compositions are still just as powerful here, and I realize now how unique Radiohead's song ... read more

OutKast - ATLiens
You know that feeling when an album gives you an eureka-moment? Like it changes your perspective of a genre, or it hits you way harder than you expected it to? Well, I think this is my eureka-album.

I thought I was familiar with hip hop. I listened to MF DOOM from time to time, and it always felt really refreshing. But for how much I loved his music, I didn't feel a real connection with the genre as a whole yet... Until I listened to OutKast. Suddenly, my whole perspective of what hip hop ... read more

Pixies - Beneath the Eyrie
Pixies are still capable of making good and really infectious music, but they clearly lost that spark from the beginning of their career

Beneath the Eyrie isn't a bad record, it's just a bit avarage. The songwriting is a bit stale, so it lost my attention in a lot of places. Luckily, it has that classic Pixies sound, which has never lost its charm. They still sound really nice after all these years, the sound just doesn't really jump out to the front like it used to do

I'm not sure yet, but I ... read more

Daniel Johnston - Songs of Pain
R.I.P. Daniel Johnston

Somehow, his death hits differently. His music is so brutally honest and unique, that it feels way more personal. He was a lovable man who liked to share his deepest thoughts through music, and something about his way of making music is so inspiring.

Thank you for sharing your music with us. We'll never forget you and your crazy world

Gregory & The Hawk - Moenie and Kitchi
YouTube is a great source to find the most beautiful, colourful and most underrated pieces of music out there... Such as this little blessing of a record!

It may be a short album, but The comforting sound of it makes the half hour feel like an entire day. The soft vocals and sweet acoustic guitar riddles on this album reminded me a lot of Sufjan Steven's Carrie & Lowell, but there are some other unexpected instruments thrown into the mix which makes it a very interesting listen.

Boris - Pink
What an absolute MONSTROUS album this is! From start to end, it holds you in a strong grip under layers and layers of dense guitar riffs and banging drums. This is one of the fiercest albums I've come across, and that probably makes it my favorite metal album to date.

The tone on this record is just perfect. It sounds like what would happen if Loveless was a doom metal album. But for as angry as it may sound, it's surprisingly fun as well. There are thick and fast riffs everywhere, so you ... read more

Various Artists - Shrek: Music from the Original Motion Picture
I got this on CD for my birthday and it's unironically one of the greatest pieces of art I'll probably ever get in physical form
Elliott Smith - Either/Or
This review will be dedicated to Elliott Smith. He is my favorite artist, because he's been a huge inspiration to me. Every single one of his albums is a pure masterpiece to me and I love all of them almost equally.

Elliott Smith, in my opinion, is one of the greatest songwriters of all time. He has an amazing talent for writing melodies and he's a genius with chord progressions. But what really makes his music is his personality. He was such a beautiful and honest man who put his soul into ... read more

Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked at Me
I don't think there's an album that describes "death" better than this one. By purely focusing on all his feelings, memories and realizations surrounding his deceased wife, Phil wrote songs that feel... so real. More real then anything I've listened to, even more real then I feel right now.

This whole album is written for the sake of coping with death, finding a way to put that mourning process into words. Nothing is romanticized, nothing is fake. Every word is there because it ... read more

It's like they put a strobelight inside my head and it's flickering and shouting non stop at me what is this
Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
Twin Fantasy has probably become my favorite album at this point, and as time goes on, I'm only getting more and more attached to it.

Some music can get personal, but... Nothing has been able to hit home so hard like this album did. The way Will Toledo writes about the fear of growing up, the fear of going to college, the fear of love... It's all brought in such an honest and emotional way. I believe every word he's singing, which makes it an emotional listen every time I put it on.

I ... read more

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
This is one of those albums that's deeply connected with its release year: 2010. The sound of it, the lyrics, the overall mood... Everything about it brings me back to those days. But not only does it evoke memories, it's also able to perfectly capture the feeling of living in the 21st century.

Now, that 'connection' may cause it to age very quickly. I don't think it will hold up very long, and the bloated production will only bring it down even more. But that doesn't mean that it's not ... read more

black midi - Schlagenheim
And so my wishes came true...

WOOOWWW this was even better than I expected! I knew black midi were something special when I first discovered them and their debut definitely shows that. I'm so happy that these guys delivered my album of the year!

Anyways, what makes black midi so special? On the surface, they seem like a cool underground band trying to make a name. But genre-wise, they're incredibly hard to define. Their music is to jazzy to be rock, but too rock to be jazz. It's too ... read more

The Unicorns - Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
To anyone who likes this album: You're a wonderful person and I believe in you. I hope all of your sweet dreams will come true

To the makers of this album: thank you so, so much

Sweet Trip - Velocity : Design : Comfort
I... Wow. I just trancended. I don't know where I was but it sure wasn't in this universe
The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs
It's an interesting album to say at least, but for me personally it was a dragging experience.

Of course, not all songs can be on the same quality level when there's whopping 69 songs to listen to. It's very easy to fall into a repetitive loop of the same generic songs. I gotta admit though, The Magnetic Fields did a really good job at avoiding that. There's a great amount of variety and humorous lyrics on this album. But there are also a lot of uninteresting and boring songs to get ... read more
