I was genuinely surprised when I shouldn’t have been. This is Bob Dylan after all. This year he drops another introspective album with new stories that feel both familiar and fresh at once.

People will say that My Bloody Valentine was just music that sounded like a wall of sound. Listening to The Silver Album will tell you that ain’t nothing compared to what they have on deck. Most of this is shoegaze repurposed; a sound providing elements of space rock and the rising nugaze sound aim to re-contextualize the shoegaze essence. Often I’m vaguely reminded of songs like Tommy Petty’s I’m Running Down a Dream and some songs by The Doors as the music plays. ... read more

This is an oddball addition to the conscious hip hop style. Dominiques goes into specific detail, often times his writing will coms off like a stream of consciousness and feel like he’s deliberately talking nonsense, listing things to do with his childhood trauma of getting hit by a car, the lessons learned from his parents in what often feels like skits mid-track, and his nostalgia for the things he enjoyed. He does this by detailing his life growing up, painting a setting of the people ... read more

Hands down the best couple of tracks I’ve heard all year. The masterful collaboration of these three individuals make for quite the combination. It’s a good mix of all their talents and each one is highlighted distinctively. It’s cold, dank, and illuminating in a small bundle. I’ll have to add this to my top EPs list. The fact it’s still a “single” doesn’t matter when we are considering Burial is in the equation who annually it seems releases a ... read more

Dorian is a damn genius, I say! They make some of the funniest music and once again it’s their take on toxic masculinity (or lack there of rather???) through the beta male perspective. Dorian once again gives observations and commentary on men, and women as well, almost as a study at this point. Whereas on their debut they seemed like they were standing up against male fragility and its social norms, this time they walk alongside the fedora dawning, knightly gentlemen on the internet, in ... read more

Supp!

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))

Hope you’re having a great day!

Every so often, through slapdash opinions, I will post my thoughts on a group of albums. These records are usually all listened to during the time in between the sessions I spend on this site.

I find myself to lean less critical and more accepting on most records than others. I’m always down to give new albums a try, no matter the genre.

Library includes albums to-be reviewed & I also plan on reviewing my albums with only ratings too.

I also like anime! MAL👇
