Stunning.

Breathtaking vocals, flawless production, and a wonderful tracklisting. This album turned me from a sceptic to a believer. I also have no doubt that this album will be huge, maybe even more than her last album. This is such a mature turn for Billie. I was not a fan of the fantasy, edgy stuff on her last project. I am a fan of nearly every single idea on this new one, down to the spoken word interlude of Not My Responsibility, to the most intense corners of this project. Billie is on ... read more

Billie Eilish’s explosion onto the music scene is unique in a way that is comparable to basically no one, being immediately loved by mainstream listeners, indieheads, alt-kids, and the music industry/award shows at large. She essentially received the level of fame one would expect of a Justin Bieber type while still having some sort of “cred” from music nerds (at least the ones that don’t hate women with dyed hair). So after sweeping the Grammy’s and the love of ... read more

On Happier Than Ever, Billie expands and refines her formula, giving it a bigger dimension than in the past. Thematically, this new album is overwhelming, urgent and poignant, showing all the will of its author to break the codes of the Pop.

The interest of the music industry for very young talents has always existed. So has the self-taught development of this type of artist. However, the case of Billie Eilish is to be classified among the exceptions, as out of the ordinary. Whether you like ... read more

It was quite obvious from the beginning that Billie Eilish's new album "Happier Than Ever" would be significantly more mature than her previous works. You could see this in the name, the cover art, and some of the singles. I've been excited to see this progression of her, and I can say that it is definitely rewarding. This new album, in my opinion, is absolutely better than her debut. It is much more atmospheric, experimental, and memorable. It feels like the record has less filler ... read more

A young artist that may be underestimated finally emerging into herself as a musician, curating a new and improved style for herself. Ridiculed online for a disappointing era in her newfound spotty discography, against all odds, ‘Happier Than Ever’ delivers on Eilish’s best project yet and shows even more promise than her debut.

Coming off of a melodramatic electropop, alternative R&B debut, Billie Eilish is now back with her sophomore release, “Happier Than ... read more

Pi'erre Bourne - The Life Of Pi'erre 5

(Original Rating: 50)

Objectively, an hour of material is quite jarring, especially for a trap album. There was absolutely some songs that I will be revisiting though.

Johnny Cash - At Folsom Prison
84
"At Folsom Prison" is one of the most wholesome and fun albums I've heard in a while. The live experience, which, as the title suggests, is reaffirmed on just about every single track, where cheers seep in between Cash's vocal and instrumental pauses. However, this only adds authenticity to the record, which is as great as it is because of such qualities. Throughout the record, Cash feels as if he's having the time of his life; like singing before all those Folsom prisoners was a ... read more
諏訪根自子 [Nejiko Suwa] - 諏訪根自子の芸術 (Suwa Nejiko no Geijutsu): Early Recordings 1933-1935
92
Considering this compilation's explosive acclaim on this site (everyone who rated it seems to love it) and my lack of experience in this certain field of music, Nejiko Suwa's "(Suwa Nejiko no Geijutsu): Early Recordings 1933-1935" piqued my interests almost immediately. I did some reading into Nejiko as I heard the album, and I have to say that the fact a child did this is truly incredibly; it really epitomises the whole concept of child prodigies in music. Nejiko plays the violin in ... read more
Travis Scott - Rodeo
90
Well, my initial review on this was a major misfire. I decided to revisit "Rodeo" today, just out of curiosity, and, wow, just how great it was compelled me to write a completely new review on it. Many comparisons can be drawn to "House of Balloons", mainly due to its immersions in the life of the party, but Travis Scott tackles it in a different fashion, in one that prominently sticks out amongst his contemporaries. Exceeding them in both scope, production and sonic ... read more
Playboi Carti - Die Lit
89
"Die Lit" by Playboi Carti features some very mediocre lyrics, which are delivered in a way where you literally can't hear what's being said, but this album has this infectious and fun quality to it that makes listening to it a such an enjoyable experience.

Best Tracks: Long Time, Shoota, Choppa Won't Miss
Worst Tracks: Foreign, Pull Up, No Time

Rating: B+
Pusha T - Daytona
84
Alongside Kanye West's amazing production, Pusha T on "Daytona" shines the brightest he ever has, delivering killer flow after killer flow on banger after banger. This album is a perfect example of the phrase 'Quality over quantity.' Although only seven tracks and twenty-one minutes in length, this album is completely devoid of dull moments. The opener, "If You Know We Know" is a great introduction to this album. Pusha's aggressive flow partnered with the experimental and ... read more
Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell!
91
Reheard this ahead of Chemtrails and, I must say, if Chemtrails is as good as this, it could seriously be an early AOTY contender. "Norman Fucking Rockwell!" is an amazing album; I completely forgot how good this was. Over its 67 minute runtime, Lana Del Rey presents fourteen tracks that contain both the core elements of her signature sound and a new bolder tone that these earlier works excluded. Lyrically, Lana's work on this record is stunning. Her exploration of emotions is ... read more
Pink Floyd - Animals
88
Pink Floyd, on "Animals", create another experimentally rich and bold entry into their discography. On here, the band completely changes up their sound, from their instrumentations to their vocals to their song lengths. But, fortunately, for the most part, it pays off. Seeing Pink Floyd implement such ambition into their work and then pull off what they aim for so well made my listening experience so much better. No matter how long the songs were, I was constantly invested by the ... read more

Great album, the outros are annoying though
The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
88
"Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" is an album I've wanted to hear for so long now, I can't even say. If it weren't for its 121-minute runtime, this would've been checked off a long time ago. Well, I heard it, finally, and what a surprise, it's great. The Smashing Pumpkins provide an album that is gigantic in scope and epic in every sense of the word. Every single subgenre of rock is on this album at some point, yet the record as a whole is incredibly cohesive. At worst, it's a ... read more
