Okay, guys. I get it. Minecraft. Now can we review the album please?

Anyways, I did not know what to expect from this ambient album. I had never listened to any of Tim Hecker's previous work, so I apologize in advance for making my review irrelevant, but from the get-go I found myself in an uneasy place. The plucking strings, reversing audio, synth bass, and lingering flutes in the background encapsulated me fully. I would not recommend sleeping to this album, for fear of getting sleep ... read more

My infinite descent into emo continues. I realize that this series is going quite slowly, so it's about time that I start cleaning up some of my past reviews. After all, I want to listen to more emo, so I won't let my procrastination stop me!

This time we've got some emo revivalism on our hands. And wow, someone in the comments suggested that the lead vocalist sounds like Spongebob, and I simply cannot unhear it now. If you enjoyed Spongebob's vocal performance on the Campfire Song, you will ... read more

Well, there it is. My AOTY for 2018. I don't care that this is technically a remaster, since I listened to this one before the "original". Every song on this album is an absolute stroke of genius, and I see now how this album blew everyone out of the indie rock waters back in 2011. This is 1 hour and 11 minutes of angsty indie rock perfection.

The opening track My Boy (Twin Fantasy) is a great opener for the album, it encapsulates everything that the album has to offer in a ... read more

A critic score of 87 and post-punk, name a better combo. I had no choice but to try this record. We're we going to get another repeat of Dogrel, or is this album actually worth the praise?

It is if as IDLES and Fontaines D.C were to have a baby. It has the lyricism of Fontaines D.C, the grueling bass of IDLES, the accent of Fontaines D.C, the song structure of IDLES. It is kind of surreal. (I see now that people disagree with this comparison, but I don't care).

And it shows that the music ... read more

The second album of this year for King Gizzard. This time they are moving away from boogie and straight into Metallica-inspired thrash metal. Though the difference here is that the drummer is actually talented.

The album starts up a furious blast beat accompanied with double bass drums, before starting off a Slayer-like riff that seems to be straight out of Reign in Blood. The unnecessary guitar solos are there, and the lead singer is trying his best James Hetfield impression. The songs moves ... read more
