Inspired by the 80s, Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Emotion' can be safely called a cultural reset.

I decided to devote my 200th review to this album because it's very special to me. 'Emotion' helped me get through hard times and change outlook on life and music.

Few years ago, I did not pay much attention to music at all, but then I listened to 'Run Away With Me' for the first time. From that moment my life changed, and it seemed strange to me because it was just a song that caught my ... read more

Slayyyter's debut album, "Troubled Paradise" came out much more varied than her debut eponymous mixtape, but the main problem of "TP" is the lack of that unique drive that was inherent in the mixtape.

Marina's fifth album, "Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land" shows us her comeback to bright and juicy sounding, and, most importantly, to life, because her previous album, "Love + Fear", came out as boring and lifeless as possible.

From all Marina's albums, first part of "ADIAML" is most similar to "Electra Heart": the same heavy, powerful electronic sound from which the Marina squeezes all its maximum on the album-titled track.

The second part is not so ... read more

Noooo it's too good to be real 😭😭😭

From the very first track, I realized that this would be one of the best albums of this year, and I wasn't wrong with that. Production, sounding: literally everything here, every second of every song is brilliant.

I didn't know about Wolf Alice earlier, and I didn't have expectations for "Blue Weekend", but after listening to this record I can say that this is one of the most beautiful albums that came out this year.

Every track has its own charm, its own individuality. The album does not go beyond the line of a mess of different tracks or beyond the line of monotonous boredom, it is right in the middle, in the very center of the balance keeping the previously noted qualities.

Hellooo there! I hope you are having an amazing, happy and healthy day today <3

I’m making a ‘Comfort album’ list which would be a go-to album to listen to when we are upset or having a hard time, as music is a source of happiness or comfort to many people. As we are facing such a hard time right now with the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe with this list, we can as a community gather as many albums in a list for anyone who may be looking for a certain album that puts them in a good mood, calms them down, or like I’ve stated before.. comforts them! If you would like to submit an album that does that effect for you, please list these 4 things, album name, artist, and a sentence as to WHY you love this album and WHY it’s such a comfort album for you. It could be because of the lyrics, how it makes you feel.. etc. You may explain it in either one sentence or however many sentences you want, it is your choice! BUT, If you do not have one, no worries then <3 Thank you for reading!
