IDLES - TANGK
58
I don't doubt that IDLES went into this album with a decent array of ideas. For that reason, I won't simply dismiss this project as uninspired. Whether or not they properly executed said ideas however is a different matter. Spoiler alert: they didn't.

Many of TANGK's tracks feel quite underbaked, and, to put it bluntly, quite boring as well. From the dull, basic piano-centric ballad "A Gospel", to the irritatingly repetitive "Hall & Oates", there are quite a few moments ... read more

Judas Iscariot - To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding

Few albums better encapsulate the meaning of the word "serviceable".

Agriculture - Agriculture

The debut LP of the L.A. born group Agriculture stands as one of 2023's most interesting releases, though it's not for the reasons one may expect. For me, much of this record's intrigue lies in the potential it reflects rather than in the actual material that it houses.

While there is no doubt that great material exists on this album, much of Agriculture's debut consists of ideas in need of serious ironing out. An example of this would be its second track, which serves as quite the left turn ... read more

Kevin Abstract - Blanket
54
Up until this point, I had not heard a solo project from Kevin Abstract in full. I was, of course, aware of, and fond of, his work with BROCKHAMPTON, but had yet to thoroughly listen to anything he had created outside of his collaborative projects.

If I'm being completely transparent, I didn't exactly expect my introduction to Kevin's work to go particularly smoothly. This was largely due to the middling reputation of BROCKHAMPTON's final two projects, as well as the mixed ratings that this ... read more

Hey thomas! I just finished my top 50 projects of this year list, mind checking it out?

I definitely enjoyed the rugged manliness of David Gilmour, as seen in your profile picture.
Have a great 2024!

That Murmuüre goes hard af. Seriously some of the most unique BM I've heard. Pretty overwhelmed it's so good tbh.

It's definitely up there with the best of them. It might take some listens for it to dethrone some like Paysage d'Hiver and Bathory's best, but I can def see it climbing up to, like, top 10 BM records.

Finally listened to that Mgla album. Goddamn, the riffs go hard, and the drumming is otherworldly. Tracks V and VI are absolutely insane, some peak black metal there.

I'll be... just some dude?

That's another one I've been meaning to check out. I'll check it when I can
