Maruja - Knocknarea
This EP seems to be attempting to blur the line between post punk and post rock. It takes much of the jazz and some of the traditional punk elements of modern post punk and also includes the grandiosity and the atmospheric qualities of post rock. Sure, some might call it derivative because it does seem to wear it's influences on it's sleeve but it's easy to look past because of just how well everything on this project is composed and arranged.
Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll
Imagine dragon deez nuts
Jack Harlow - Jackman.
I was pretty caught off guard with this album because the only album of Jack’s that I had heard previously was his last which left lots to be desired. However, this is a really solid album. It’s is really well produced and it shows much more personality and vulnerability than his previous effort.
Jessie Ware - That! Feels Good!
got me bustin moves n shiii
Tyler, The Creator - Cherry Bomb
Bad production, some pretty charming moments though.
Bon Iver - 22, A Million
I wanted to like this a whole lot more than I ended up liking it. I think there are quite a few things that work really well for this album. There are lots of cool atmospheres, the sample work is really nice, and I can appreciate the risks taken. However, there's so much that feels unignorably clunky to me. This album's vocal arrangements are a massive downgrade in contrast with previous Bon Iver albums. The vocal production and processing is incredibly distracting from the instrumentation, ... read more
This album is a very eerie and uncomfortable experience. It's brutally honest which is definitely part of the reason I feel so compelled by it. It's production feels jagged and constantly evolving with the way it uses dynamics to frighten the listener. It sometimes feel like it's droning which perfectly matches the bleak outlook on life that the writing provides. Both the shaky and unassertive vocals and the more abrasive vocal moments match the production really well. The lyrical content is ... read more
Am I listening to the same album as everyone else? I genuinely cannot see any appeal to this.

First of all, the production is terrible. Every song either sounds super bland or is so overproduced that it just becomes this overstimulating clump of microwaved noise. Vocal mixing is also terrible because the vocals are always so loud in the mix and loaded with WAY too many effects. The vocal performances are also incredibly awkward and shaky sounding, especially when in falsetto ranges. The ... read more

Logic - Supermarket
I mean yeah, it's not very good. This is such a roller coaster of an album in just about the worst way. It goes from one half assed attempt at a genre to another half assed attempt at a genre quicker than Logic can say biracial.
Denzel Curry - ZUU
Of course, I prefer Denzel's more ambitious projects but this is still a pretty damn good album. It's production is very impressive, it's writing is pretty good, and it has this very fun and lighthearted aura in comparison to other Denzel projects.
This album honestly just screams superiority complex. That is especially frustrating when it falls flat in just about every way. It's lyrical miracle spiritual individual style of writing is super uninventive and corny. It's production is so overblown and grandiose that I find it almost impossible to find any sort of enjoyment in this album. NF always acts like he's on some sort of moral high ground in his music and it makes him always come off as incredibly unlikeable. He also lacks any ... read more
Blood On The Dance Floor - Let's Start a Riot
I saw a tiktok with a song from this band, thought it was genuinely the worst thing I had ever heard, then morbid curiosity got the best of me and here we are now. I have now listened to this album. I could have used that time to go touch grass or pet my cat. 40 minutes that I will never get back. There is no god and this album is the proof.

I genuinely feel the need to go take a shower after listening to this. I don't know if that makes sense. I hope someone understands.

This sound was ... read more

Panic! at the Disco - Pretty. Odd.
Sure, this album is incredibly derivative but it has some charm to it. This is the only good p!atd album in my opinion.
Melanie Martinez - PORTALS
It seems like Melanie put emphasis on the presentation/visuals of this album so maybe we would be dumb enough to not realize how hollow and uninteresting the music is. It presents itself as something deep and thought provoking but when you begin to dig past the surface you will get absolutely nothing in return. Tonally and thematically this album is not nearly thought out enough to have the ability to call itself a Bjork clone. Also, the production is completely all over the place in terms of ... read more
Jeff Buckley - Grace
This is easily one of my favorite albums ever released. It carries a certain tenderness that you can’t really find elsewhere. This album is also very energizing for me. No matter how I’m feeling, I can listen to this album and then feel compelled to go pick up a guitar and sing. No album does that for me quite as consistently as this one. Jeff Buckley is easily one of the greatest vocalists ever. The vocal gymnastics he manages to pull on this album border on inhuman. It’s ... read more
I already had really high expectations for this album but it completely exceeded them. Peggy and Danny Brown are two of the most creative people working in music right now and some of the most exciting to follow. Both of their brands of experimental hip hop are so uniquely theirs and I think they blend perfectly on this album. Even though this album could be an ear sore for some, if you are more aquatinted with JPEGMAFIA’s production style you’ll probably really like the production ... read more
Black Country, New Road - Live at Bush Hall
sounds utterly whimsical but made me cry
Fall Out Boy - So Much (For) Stardust
Fall Out Boy seem to be having a little bit of an identity crisis here. This is still somehow the best album they've released in over a decade so I think there's room to be optimistic. However, everything on this album past the opener is just way too tame for the bombastic and grandiose presentation of this album. I think that's where the identity crisis comes in because they're just trying to please way too many people.

"@strwbrry okay cool? You are completely allowed to have your opinion but i'm allowed to have mine as well. saying "f these haters" doesn't change the fact that I didn't get much personal enjoyment out of this album."
