“Antarctica: The Bliss Out Vol. 2” is a well-rounded, beautiful sounding record as a whole, encased in a shroud of pure solitude and comfort.

Amazing

Already one of my favorite albums of all time, this record floored me. There are so many sides to this drone record that make it unique to me. Production choices, eclectic style, numbing tones, everything here is some of the best this genre could probably offer. I’m just... wow.

Okay

Even though it doesn’t show a lot of the qualities of drone music, apart from a few instances here and there, I find it hard to fully grasp what’s going on with this one. Sure, these tracks are noisey as hell, and that’s fine, but there’s a point where that noise goes on for too long and starts to get irritating.

I don’t know what’s going on here, nor what they did to record this serene tracks, but I’m seriously all for it. Each development has a certain charming mood to it, and makes the record feel completely concise as a whole. I couldn’t go without a single track here. Essential drone.

Great

So here's an album I've never-ever seen before, made by a somewhat mysterious artist. I searched them up. 'Stara Rzeka' means "Old River" in Polish, and it's a one man multi-instrumentalist named Kuba Ziołek doing everything on here, which I think is very impressive. A lot of the sounds on this record feel like they could be from an entire orchestra, let alone one single person. Nonetheless, no matter the minuscule amount of people performing on it, ... read more

Tim Hecker's commercial debut is a very soothingly sweet venture, but sometimes get lost in its own head due to some meandering ideas and a weird lack of consistency.

Two drone genre greats team up on a 2006 collaborative album "Altar" with some mixed results. For one, these tracks aren't as catatonic as I would've hoped. When those drums come in from time to time, it's an immediate turnoff that takes me out of the spacious, cerebral sound that specific tracks give me. While I do see the hype around this release, I can't seem to connect with it emotionally at all.

When it comes to drone music, I’m not somebody to come to for recommendations. Luckily, this “Day of [insert genre here]” series is going to definitely help me dive into unknown musical territory.

Much of what appears on “Love Is a Stream” feels languid and fluid in its musical design. Dreamy guitar tones, a lack of change, and a constantly occurring reverb make for a truly mystifying, bittersweet, and somewhat melancholy experience. It ... read more

I really like the vibes they create on here, but there aren’t enough memorable moments for me to return. I’ll more return to the moody tracks here. stuff I can have in the background and be fine with.

Mediocre

It’s not that I didn’t enjoy this record. It just seems mindless at points, even though there are some pretty good songs here and there. Otherwise, it’s bland pop rock with a hint of radio horniness.

I’m an ambient whore, I gotta say it. I’ll basically enjoy any ambient album you give me, at least to a certain degree. That’s why I somewhat like this one. While it feels like too many ideas trying to come together for a consistent project, I can’t get past some of them being super cool and relaxing as separate tracks.

I honestly hate how much I love this. The cutest moments come at the most unpredictable times, making the entire album have a bittersweet feeling incomparable to anything else I’ve ever heard. Will definitely be returning to this one for a crying sesh.

Horrendous

Did not enjoy this one. Where most albums have some killer and mostly filler, “ADHD” just feels like all filler. While I do see some redeeming qualities here and there, like a pretty good beat, pretty good flow, almost everything about this project just falls short for me, regardless of the hour long runtime.

A short and sweet 20 minute record here, Chika renounces a woman-strong vision on her debut record that proudly exhibits some awesome production and memorable progressions. Chika’s lyricism is great, and while I do think she’s part of an old style of rap, I think it’s still amazing how confident she is in herself.

Ms. Dua Lipa, beloved time traveler, delivers a banger-filled, funkadelic experience.

With punchy percussion, bumping basslines, slimey synths, and low-lying lyricism (that’s some articulate alliteration), “Future Nostalgia” is just that: something that sounds like the future of pop while also sounding like it’s right out of the 80s synth pop era.

PS: That concluding 3 track-run is spectacular. This grew on me so much.

Midi symphonic hip-hop never sounded so good. With a neat blend of rap, classical, electronic, rock, and even punk, “El Negro” just feels so important to the underground music landscape of today, as it seems to have been a major influence on various musical movements.

Nothing much of substance here, and not a lot of memorable moments. I seriously can't remember a lot from it, and it pains me to say that this isn't the record for me.
