Smiling with No Teeth is probably going to be one of those debut albums of rising stars we appreciate every year. And it definitely deserves to be one of them. Challenging the borders of contemporary hip hop music, Genesis Owusu enters the music industry with an unique sound which leaves quite a lot of his more famous colleagues far behind him.

I would not get to know about this album and this artist probably if I didn't spend so much time at this website. And I am thankful for that. Kofi ... read more

With rich, elaborate songwriting and production, and confessional lyrics, BROCKHAMPTON distilled the good of contemporary hip hop music on their sixth studio record, and gave us one of the best music experiences of this year so far.

No, I do not consider myself a fan of hip hop music. In recent months, I decided to dive into this genre finally, after years of avoiding it. And honestly, I had no idea a boyband like BROCKHAMPTON exists. But that is rather my loss definitely. I noticed the ... read more

Lil Tjay shows how not to make music at his second studio album, Destined 2 Win. Even three years after he signed to a major label, it seems like he is stuck in his SoundCloud era of cheap, low-effort production and editing.

At this time, hip hop music dominates the mainstream all around the world. This genre EXPLODED during the 2010s. And why? Internet is probably one of the main reasons. It became widely accessible during the previous decade and allowed many musicians to become visible even ... read more

La Femme takes us for a tour across the United States, France and the United Kingdom at Paradigmes … and it is, with a few exceptions, an entertaining and colourful experience and a fresh flashback to the sound of synthpop from the 1980s.

So, it's 2021, and we are in the middle of a retro wave within the mainstream music. And it is appearing everywhere. Disco suddenly re-gained popularity through releases such as Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia, Kylie Minogue's DISCO, and others; then ... read more

Demi Lovato returns back to the foreground of the industry with her seventh album and shows that easily-listenable pop music can be deeply personal as well. While the music of this album is not the best – it does not try to cross pop music borders, give you the most maximalist experience or anything – it is one of the most honest pop albums I have ever heard.

Demi Lovato. Definitely a name which is familiar to a vast majority of members of the Generation Z. She introduced herself ... read more

24kGoldn debuts with one of those mediocre albums which we expect to appear from the trap rising stars these days. The pop-infused sound makes it widely accessible, but on the other hand, it sacrifices the chance to dive into more elaborate sound.

I got to know this 20-year-old rapper and singer through his breakout single, "Mood", which topped the charts all over the world just recently. But well, it didn't really make me take care. That song is a cheap trap-pop song which a wide ... read more

What is an album you like from an artist you don't like (for a list)
Jan 4, 2021
Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!
