This album is the definition of going HARD.

Took me a while to actually get into this group (believe it or not). But If you can just sit down and give this album you’re undivided attention, this album will be an incredibly rewarding experience. This album is so creative and experimental, but there is a balance here. It’s unorthodox, but often catchy as well! I don’t know how they do it but they achieve this balance masterfully.

My first thought when hearing this song:
“There has to beatmap on Osu! for this.”

This was my first introduction to clipping and I love this album.

After listening to blood of the fang which is my single of the year, I absolutely had to check this out. Before that, I had also listened to All In Your Head, which caught be by surprise and made me realise this group is definitely within the realm of experimental hip hop. Besides that, I absolutely loved the last leg of this track where Counterfeit Madison sings a beautiful vocal passage, accompanied by a very distorted ... read more

Boards Of Canada’s 3rd studio album: The Campfire Headphase, sees the band steering their sound in an interesting new direction. This album is less electronic than their previous work, focusing on more organic instrumentation with warm guitar melodies often being the backbone of tracks like Chromakey Dreamcoat, Dayvan Cowboy, and Hey Saturday Sun.

This album is a lot more meditative and relaxing. Gone are some of the dense and cold instrumentals and production that were so prevalent on ... read more

Saturday Night Wrist is Deftones most experimental release I think. Not only does it contain the (controversial?) Track Pink Cellphone. Which, in the last leg of the track, has lyrics talking about uncircumcised cocks. and buttfucking (lmao). But also the instrumental interlude track Select Start, which is very reminiscent of Boards of Canada and other IDM groups. The deftones formula is still there though, this is no departure from deftones known sound. Besides the experimental tracks this ... read more

My single "Techno Freak II" - I'd appreciate it a lot if you'd check it out and rate it. Thanks a lot

Well, I'll give you the same tips I gave to ARollingStone:

I advise you to listen to the album several times and write down the lyrics/passage that you find interesting. Then you choose if you want to do a fairly objective or completely personal review, you can tell anecdotes about yourself for example. I don't really know how to write a "good review", you just have to go and write as you feel.

I hope you will progress and get more recognition on this site... 😉

Your reviews are not the best on the site, it's true but I feel you put a lot of effort into it and I think it's very good. I've been following you since your SB2H review, which I liked. I like almost all your reviews because I think it's important to support small users.

Supp! I'm doing a challenge at the moment, the "out of my comfort-zone challenge". This is a challenge where I need to listen projects, I normally wouldn't listen too. After some listen I need to state my opinions in a review. If you would suggest an album to me, it would be great! As long as they aren't metal, hip hop or rap! (experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)

Think of one album/ep/mixtape you REALLLLY want me to listen to. And I will listen to it in full (Unless it's super long but like SUUUPER long like i'm not listening to a 2 hour album lol)

(might've accidentally shouted in some single accounts)

I'm looking for tips or advice any of you might have regarding music reviewing, I've improved a lot since I first started doing music reviews of course, but I still stumble sometimes when thinking of how to articulate my thoughts on some albums, I struggle to figure out the right words to use to describe how I'm feeling about a particular album, and I feel like I overlook a lot of things. So yeah just reply In my shoutbox with any tips or advice, I would love to hear it. Thanks.
