I've championed Julien since she released her single Sprained Ankle, a minimalist and emotionally powerful track. Then Turn Out The Lights was absolutely beautiful. Now Little Oblivions sees her experimenting with a more indie pop direction. While some deride this course as a 'sell out', they aren't willing to let Julien mature. Sure, the sparse nature of past works is largely gone, but her effortlessly powerful voice and songwriting are here in spades. From the intro track Hardline, which ... read more

I truly fail to see what the "mainstream" critics are seeing here. Architects try the BMTH revamp playbook and produce something jarringly generic. The label "metalcore" doesn't accurately describe what this is. This sounds more like what Linkin Park would have produced if they were actually much worse at being catchy than they were. It teeters dangerously close to buttrock at times, the instrumentals are so watered down they wouldn't sound out of place backing Imagine ... read more

Carnage finds Nick Cave where we left off on Ghosteen (a monumental album in it's own right). The trilogy of Push The Sky Away, Skeleton Tree, and Ghosteen has found it's fourth act and it's just as serene and devastating as the rest. Lyrically, Nick's poetry glides over Warren's lush and occasionally downright industrial(!) melodies, but don't go in expecting The Downward Spiral. It's just a bit of fuzz and clank here and there to create atmosphere. The album really kicks into gear with the ... read more

It's not often that a death metal album comes along that is so disorienting, so off the wall, that it actually manages to make you remember why the genre earned the title of "extreme" to begin with. These gargantuan songs are technically magnificent, flying from your grind and blast beat meat and potatoes to sudden jazzy interludes and influences from neo-classical music. There are some very experimental ideas and some wild time signatures to chow down on with this and it keeps the ... read more

NME is right. This album is a rare achievement. I've never seen a UK rap record with such a split personality. On the same album you can have a grimey, clever, absolute banger like Crud...when a few tracks before you have an absolutely garbage sadboy crooner with fucking Ed Sheeran of all people. Conflict of Interest, Ghetts? Is that why you named your album that? Because if so, this ain't it chief. Go back into the lab and bring more bars and less cringe on your next go.

About
Gaming nerd, music nerd (perhaps not the internet's busiest), and lover of discussion of the two. I enjoy discussing and even debating albums, it's fun as long as no one gets too butthurt. I make a written, concise review for every album I rate so look into that if you want more information. I try to make them bitesize yet informative. Give my page a follow if you'd like to see what I'm listening to or appreciate my comments on certain pieces. It'd make my shriveled, black heart happy.
