Realizing there's great Cocteau Twins records outside of 'Heaven or Las Vegas' is like realizing Male Robin & Corrin are in Smash Bros. We all do it.

This is the kind of band I would have unapologetically addicted to at 15. I feel like I missed out on some potential memories.

Okay, but really. I've had a less than favorable history with Lambchop as a band. Mostly because their sound wasn't something I was looking for when I was younger. Giving this a spin was right what I needed in the moment and (to some extent) right now. It's extremely uneventful, sparse and quiet and somehow that's the best thing about it! It is pretty breezy not too impressionable like most of their work. It's also noticbly focused ... read more

I think it does good to listen to music from your hometown. In my case it's San Luis Obispo, California. I was born and raised there for the first few years of my life. I barely remember much, but they really were sweet times. SLO in 2019 is very different than it was in the 2000s and that's pretty disheartening to say. "The rich stay rich and the poor stay poor" kind of thing. Kyle Field's 2002 release 'Light Green Leaves' is like an old dusty polaroid camera that captured some ... read more

One of my favorite and most criminally underappreciated underground records of the decade! Assateague's 2011 sophomore release is 34 minutes of pure soul weaving folk music. Good Morning Blues is as textured as it is minimal. From heartwarming and delicate tracks like 'Lay Me Down' to unapologetically gut wrenching songs like 'Sleep' showcase the integrity and ambiguity that shrouds the entire record. Especially integrity, something I feel is noticeably absent now and days.

A very broad ratings chart (some ratings not up to date):

100: Why I love music! Usually sentimental to me.
90-99: Stunning! A Must Listen! Critically speaking an A+
80-89: Stellar! Just a nit pick or two.
70-79: Good! Just a tad bit inconsistent
60-69: Alright. Just a few things bringing it down.
50-59: Interesting. Substance, but not very clear.
40-49: Substantial. There's qualities.
30-39: Umm....worth a listen?
20-29: Like...one song....I'm sorry ; _ ;
0-19: oh no.

As long as you didn't hate it and look down on me, it's still a positive ;P
Some day you should check out my all-time most favouritest album: Alopecia by Why?
I genuinely don't believe anything can top it...
If you ever for some reason care about a number I attach to an album feel free to suggest one haha :)

I never had a chance to thank you all for 100+ followers! I never thought I'd actually be this appreciated honestly 😅
I'm sure I've made some people mad over opinions and confusion and I'd like to apologize and thank you for putting up with my silly opinions and rough writing. Follower count usually isn't of any concern to me, but this is really special. Thank you!

"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!
