Jazmine Sullivan's 2021 extended play, Heaux Tales, is not a revolutionary body of work, and in my opinion, it does not have enough power to compete with hip hop and pop releases, those which dominate the mainstream now. However, it is quite strong compared to other contemporary R&B records, which often tend to sound uninteresting. Sonically, it does not leave the "comfort zone of R&B" but it sounds much more imaginative.

I would say it is a tough period for contemporary ... read more

This mixtape sounds like a worse, lowcost reissue of BLACKPINK. But as much as the Korean group's 2020 debut album sounds outdated and shallow, Ashnikko's first mixtape sounds also extremely cringy. Its music has moments, but they're buried under cringy lyrics and remaining cheap songs.

Never heard of Ashnikko before the release of this mixtape. Her public image is similar to Grimes, her aesthetic to 6ix9ine, and her music kind of sounds like BLACKPINK. And although those are mostly ... read more

Oh my God, here we go again. This is the first 2021 album I rate and I was going to listen to it with no expectations, but it left me disappointed. With Nobody Is Listening, Zayn shows himself in probably the most boring musical direction that exists in the mainstream. I'm not trying to say there are no solid trap-infused R&B albums, but this album sounds as boring as Justin Bieber's last year LP, Changes, which is the reason why Nobody Is Listening to it.

This album is an enjoyable record, showing what soul music really is with no excuses. It is definitely not a kind of music I would listen to every day but in the period of hip hop/pop rule in the mainstream, this is something you might be looking for if you want to hear "something different".

I discovered this album after it was nominated for Grammy Award for Album of the Year. These nominations seemed strange, and the nomination of this album was one of those I did not really ... read more

I discovered this album completely randomly, through an advertisement on Instagram. And I am really glad I did because it became my favourite alternative album of the year. What I find sad and interesting is the fact that Sevdaliza remains extremely underrated, although Shabrang, which is a Persian word for "night colour", is a unique artistic experience from its beginning to its conclusion, exploring the singer's journey through darkness. And not even hers, in the end, we all have to ... 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!
