"Over to You Now" did NOT deserve to be a bonus track for just the UK and Japanese edition of an EP most people don't think or know about. It's much better than the songs on the standard edition of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic (except for maybe "Someday"), and it's one of Brit's best songs in my opinion.

While teen pop is an often derided genre, some great albums have been made by teenage artists, such as Fiona Apple’s Tidal and Kate Bush’s The Kick Inside. Let’s Eat Grandma’s I’m All Ears joins this canon. Jenny Hollingworth and Rosa Walton were both 19 when this album was released. After listening to this album, it’s clear that their youth isn’t a detriment to their talent, but rather an asset. It allows them to make music with a kind of creativity ... read more

I started playing Fallout 4, a game that takes places 200 years after a nuclear war, around the time this album was released, and I honestly can’t think of a better album to soundtrack the game. If radiation could poison music, this is what it would sound like. A lot of distorted music conjures up images of metal and static, but Double Negative sounds as if it were chemically-altered. It also sounds like it’s decaying, like the music is breaking down as we’re listening to it. ... read more

Queer people are born into a world that is apathetic to their queerness at best and outright hostile to it at worst. Queer people are innately innovators of gender and sexuality, which means we are the enemies of those who like to uphold societal norms. Furthermore, when we discover our queerness, it’s often in solitude and shame. It may take a while for us to be able to properly express ourselves and find people who are like us and support us, assuming that reaching this stage even ... read more

Safe in the Hands of Love sounds like a title for a Céline Dion album. Instead, it addresses an album whose cover depicts a green demon charging at you. The disjointed jazzy intro with the most unnerving drone lying underneath it confirms that this album is not something to seek refuge in. What follows is a witches’ brew of alt-rock, R&B, IDM, industrial, and noise. The energy on this album is so dark that my mother has implied that it has demonic energy.

What's the scariest album you've ever heard? ( for a list)

You have almost twice as many perfect scores as 40-49 ratings, which I've barely ever seen here. Despite how extremely positive you are, you also manage to have the most ratings in the 70-79 range, which would seem more harsh than users, such as me. It's really just aesthetically pleasing to look at. Idk if that's a good explanation or not.
