I get to see the rain hit my window tonight. How lovely.

Explaining to someone why they should like Lambchop is like trying to explain to someone why they should like blue cheese dressing. You can't, it's kind of an acquired taste. By all means, Lambchop is no boundary pushing behemoth of a band, but rather a spacious one.

'This (is what I wanted to tell you)' continues the artistic direction taken with their (incredibly underrated) last outing 'Flotus'. However, it's far more realized and ... read more

Y'all, stop giving one line reviews the top comment. My quip wasn't even that funny wtf. That said, no deep fried memes came out of this so I'm here to torture you with a review instead.

So guess who knew this was going to be bad from day one...that's right THIS GUY! You might be thinking "but Gav, that's not so hard to do" but this album actually has some history to it. I feel context is key for this one so buckle up for some WEEZY HISTORY.

This album was actually announced three ... read more

Man...that album cover is accurate.

Honestly, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Literally!...just read the plethora of reviews here! Whether you're a casual listener looking for something breezy and challenging or a connoisseur who wants intricate detail this is the album for you. There's never a moment where this album falters! So pour some coffee or tea and let the sounds carry you away.
(Is it just me or does "texture" as a word have a certain texture to it)

I'm a little late to this, but late is better than never I suppose. It's been four years since 'To Pimp A Butterfly' was released! Crazy to think, huh? I remember the very day when it came out. I had just walked into my room after mowing the lawn. All of the people on this website I was on at the time were absolutely floored. I had never seen anything like it. I still haven't actually. It took a bit (because I had a personal resentment towards Rap as a whole then) but I finally got around to ... read more

Top ten anime plot twists, amiright? I guess I have an ego of 100 now. So I have more to say than usual and I'd like to clear some things first as I feel they're necessary to share my opinions.

For starters I don't consider myself a critic, at least not in the typical sense. I merely go into music with an empty conscious (most of the time) and I simply like what I like. I don't judge a record for what it's "missing" but for what it IS. Sometimes I might have something to say. I don't ... read more

review), and you'll feel a lot freer in the writing of your review. In other words, I'd make an effort to drop out of the new-album current and just stand on the side of the stream watching close by. It's very empowering when you drop a review for an album that isn't a new super hot album, or an album with a strong iconic history. Your account will become a lot less trendy and more solidified/respectable by other users, and you'll end up finding music you'll enjoy a lot easier. Hope this helps!

they would write, so those always shoot to the top. My advice would be to try and slow down your interest in what's new and super popular and has the most conversation swirling around it. Look for albums you'll actually enjoy listening to, and you'll notice your writing will super-improve. When you're reviewing an album that's not super new or special, it feels like it's just for you, which removes a lot of pressure. It feels like your own little secret of an album (like my Truant/Rough Sleeper

Wow, thanks a lot man! If I could offer advice, I'd immediately ween away from reactionary, heat-of-the-moment reviews. AOTY is very different nowadays, with basically comments standing in for actual reviews. It's a bummer seeing some monotone-written, memey post-millenial sounding comment at the top of every album now. They're basically like cheap commercials versus the actual tv show. But now all those kids kind of flooded in and give likes to the style of review (honorary youtube comment)

Well before we go any further, I think we need to address your ratings of iridescence and YWGWYW. Travesties, for sure.

Buuuuuuuuuuuut you also gave AMSP 100, so I guess it's permissible.

Thank you for the recommendation! I am not a huge fan of folk, but the folk albums that are good are REALLY good.
I'll get to it as soon as I can!

I feel a bit same about Heaven and Earth and Epic too.. they are a bit dull for me but with this one i was instantly hooked and have listened already like 5 times..

"All my favorite singers couldn't sing."

My scores are a reflection of my overall enjoyment and less of any critical analysis. I've never been a fan of numbers to be honest. Anyways, if you have a music suggestion feel free to share! I'm also into gardening and can give advice if needed!

Take care and God bless!
