The production team behind Taylor Swift’s past two albums have released their second project as a duo, and just like Folklore it is very pleasant, unlike Folklore it is completely inessential. This is a very nice collection of folky/chambery art-pop that is pretty well written and solidly produced. Their selection of guests is mostly solid and it’s all performed well. And that’s the problem, this album does little more than that to grab your attention. The guest tracks are, as ... read more

This new Halsey album is produced by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Just throwing that out there just in case you didn’t know.

This is an album with intensity and grandeur like The UK scene has never seen before, it demands and commands attention throughout the tracklist, and that’s so impressive given that it throws out its most dramatic and immense song immediately. But once you’re inside Simbi’s head, exploring her confidence ... read more

This album is way too long, and that’s so sad because the substance that is here is fantastic. A large chunk of this album is an outstanding commentary on Ghett’s position in the industry, with him reflecting on his younger, more troubled years, and how he views these as someone with such a powerful stake in British black culture. He raps about his real experiences trapping while complaining about the inauthenticity of the modern scene, he talks about systemic police racism, and how ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?
