Ok so this EP is weird. So from what I gather, in 1992 Nintendo was promoting Super Mario World, and they found this completely unknown rap group who only had one album out at the time. They commissioned a "Mario Rap" (as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2nF92mu8X0) for a commercial. For some reason it's filmed at Chessington World of Adventure? Why? They aren't british? Wha?

Anyways they apparently got the permission to make this EP of their commercial song. And it's ... read more

RZA? You ok man? You doing well? You know you don't have to make ASMR albums if you don't want to. I mean I don't necessarily have a problem with you doing that, it's just...weird. Very weird.

Ok something I've never gotten a chance to talk about is my bizarre fascination with story based ASMR/Meditation. It's a strange concept. ASMR is supposed to lure you in a state of relaxation by triggering specific cognitive receptions. Tapping, brushing, clicking, etc. Triggers that are so subliminal ... read more

This was so bad that I died. I'm dead now.

1992 was irritating, but I can acknowledge that it just wasn't my thing. I didn't walk away from 1992 thinking "Oh that was horrendous." Yeah, Everything Sucks doesn't get that sympathy.

It's like those offbrand ERB youtube videos if they made one about Harley Quinn. The Suicide Squad version specifically, just so you know what we're dealing with. It's so brazenly awful and immature, that it sounds like a 10 year old boy's idea about ... read more

I have to say, if this wasn't a two song EP this would be at least an 80. This rock ep by our very own Plats is such a fun energy that I look for when I listen to bedroom punk like this. There's an interesting amount of experimentation and variation on this with different instruments, chord progressions, and a very complex understanding of music. You can tell Plats spent a lot of time on these songs because it sounds like a labor of love.

Honestly my only critique is make it longer. Two ... read more

Christian R&B can go burn in a pile of the $5 CD tub they all inevitably end up in.

I'm going to be honest, the only reason I chose to listen to this was because I kept typing in "Oh" to bring up the AOTY user (Stream Sometimes I Wish to Be a Clover btw) and this kept popping up. I guess that subliminal advertising worked because I thought "huh, I guess I'll check this out, and god it's so bad.

It's like if Khalid teamed up with Zooey Deschanel to make music for Christian ... read more

Ok so I recently listened to The Format and I loved it. Incredible fun production, still great lyrics, and a really modern feel. EVen though it came out in 2007 it feels like it hasn't aged a day. So I thought "Oh, I wonder if fun. holds up that well. I like fun., Carry On is incredible song, this should be an easy 90." And it should have been, this should have been a great album, but it wasn't.

My first clue that something fishy was happening was the three singles were at the front ... read more

In many ways this is worse than Coffee and Ramen but also, it's admittedly more enjoyable?

I mean, using megalovania as a backing track is a bad idea. Putting a "What is Gravity Falls had lyrics" song on a "serious album" is a worse idea. And RAPPING on said Gravity Falls song is the worst idea anybody can have. Snapcube why! Why would you do this to me? Why would you force a 2012 "Subscribe to NERD GAMER SONGS" bit on your album. It just kills any fond memories ... read more

You are all wrong on this one. >:( Wrong!!!

It's easy to write something like this off as "Drumpf bad ha ha! I am comedy god!" But this is an actual album with real thought and energy put in, and writing it off like that is lame. Besides, this album doesn't even just focus on Trump anger so there's no reason to write it off like that.

The albums opener "A Poem" has these shaky, damaged vocals that continue through the whole album. It sounds like Sean is really ... read more

Wtf is this what the fuck. I just wanted to discover new music why was this fate forced upon me. Like hearing this felt like a cruel practical joke played on me. "Ha ha you thought you would be listening to real music, take this torture device."

I'll give this a compliment I guess...the cover is nice. That's it.

Alright you know that Possible Space album that came out this year. Imagine that but SO Much worse.

Good god it's like Stice tried to make Lana Del Rey music. The lyrics ... read more

Sometimes you listen to something so colossally stupid you just break, mentally.

I choose to listen to this because I wanted something light. It's The Beach Boys! I understood this wasn't Pet Sounds good or whatever, but I like Surfing U.S.A., I like Little Saint Nick. I thought it would be some fun campy goodness. What I got instead was a pure dive into chaos that felt like I was trapped inside a Readers Digest Magazine. Or a racist grandma's house. IDK something Old and Bad.

KnifeTrick delivers a fun little chiptunes project that's a lot of fun. He said this album came from them experimenting with an app on their phone, and I mean, kinda weird to release your demos as a project but whatever! There's some fun beep-boops on this and not much else.

It's a very simple project mainly because it seemed to have come from a sheer lack of having nothing else to do. I doubt this will be KnifeTrick's "New Sound" but as a weird experiment, I like it. Very simple ... read more

Why was this made? I know why, it's for the lulz xd. But why would this level of effort be put in?

On the title track there's this kickass guitar solo that's really great. It might be lifted from somewhere but I don't think it is. It's genuinely and incredible solo that would fit right in with a Car Seat Headrest Track. And it just so happens to be on a song about how many ores he mines.

There's a weird level of professionalism here that kinda makes me uncomfortable. It's on Spotify and ... read more

This album is good fuck y'all.

https://penistheband.bandcamp.com/album/too-big-to-fail

"TEEHEE IT SAYS PENIS SO I GIVE BAD SCORE" that shits lame as hell. Don't do that.

Penis is a fun, all girl punk group with a clear Ramones influence. They're very repetitive, but what they lack in new ideas they make up for in charisma, constantly getting more excited as they yell. This album has some funny statements about sex, working, all that punk stuff. The audio quality on the girls ... read more

(Score is for the bonus tracks)

This album is over an Hour and Half long. Any joy or energy in the music at the beginning is just drained out by the time you get to the 50 minute mark. I was clinging to my ears forcing them to keep listening. The music isn't BAD (Except Wells Fargo, that song is awful in the best way possible, love that song.) It's just that all the songs sound the SAME, it's fun at first, then it's boring, and by the time you get to the bonus tracks you just want them to go ... read more

I'm reviewing this because the lead singer of the band is saying nice things in the reviews and I want him to say nice things 2 me 🙃.

Moon Halo gives a great "Tame Impala" meets "Thee Oh Sees" vibe. It's not a completely new and fresh idea but what it attempts to sound like it pulls off really well. We have some great funky songs like "Seize the Day" and "Chroma" that just really capture a great groove.

I will say that the second half of the album is ... read more

Probably should review it.....probably should.

Dating a person who genuinely loves this album is weird because, I still don't know why. It's all very watered down musical numbers with painfully clean singing. To the point that it's so clean that it you realize how awful of a singer most of these people are. The lyrics are dumb and vapid, nothing interesting musically happens. The best way to summarize this is to say "It's the soundtrack to a Disney film called Teen Beach Movie 🤷." ... read more

I don't have many thoughts on this. It's just a compilation of Flex Entertainment scrapped songs. Honestly this is no worse or better than any other Flex song so I can't really say why a lot of these were scrapped. Honestly songs like "Glistening" "I Like Dogs" and pretty much any other Big Baller B or Lil Mosquito Disease song. But those two have always put out the same level of quality so it's no surprises. Also the Submarine Man song sucks but that's not a surprise ... read more

lmao ok.

Brentalfloss is something I have confusing feelings over. Like, on one hand, he's a boring hack. Lame video game parody music WILL NEVER be good. There is nothing to it to make it interesting or WORTHY of being good. Saying "Mario EAT THE DRUG MUSHRooM!" over the Super Mario Sunshine theme doesn't have any interesting elements, themes, anything. Anything at all to make music "music."

But idk, I have a soft spot for it. For one, Brentalfloss was my shit when I ... read more

If this was good I'd have to write an actual review but if it was bad I was just going to make a one word review that said "Anime." But it turned out to be really good so now I have to put in effort >:(

Given the cover I thought this would be some nightcore/lo-fi hip hop type deal, but it was actually a very sweet and sentimental rock album. I'd describe it as "If PUP was a bunch of anime school girls." There's the standard cliches of Anime-rock and there's a lot of ... read more

Like most albums I listen to, I really like the stupid shit. Here we have some great dumb stuff in the form of songs like "Benny the Boxer" and other songs that have this fun "prog rock meets ragtime" feel. The playing here is not only technically impressive, but it's fun playful spirit is infectious.

The problem is everything before Benny, kinda sucks. "Tocota" is experimental music gone wrong, with it's "let's see if this works." feel that I can't ... read more
