...fuck.

Do you ever hear an album that makes absolutely no sense, yet at the same time, makes perfect sense? Have you ever felt that duality, that stark contrast, that perfect clash when listening to something? Because for me, 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix', the sophomore record from Injury Reserve, is exactly what that is; it is something that makes absolutely no sense, but it makes perfect sense. This is an album that is grief personified, laid out and dissected, to a horrifically accurate ... read more

This should've been a mistake...

By almost all accounts, this should have been a terrible idea. Groggs was a vital member of the group. The three man weave *is* Injury Reserve, The prospect of taking any single one of them out of the equation is one that is reasonably met with hesitance, yet they pulled it off. Ritchie and Parker successfully made both the best album they've ever released, as well as an incredible tribute to their late friend.

The first thing I have to talk about is the ... read more

The Melodic Blue is like a recipe to potentially make a great feast but when you taste the final result you have this impression that some ingredient is missing or that the cooking is not necessarily mastered. If Baby Keem didn't succeed in crossing this step, there are still some satisfying points if not a really thrilling album experience...

Hykeem Jamaal Carter, better known as Baby Keem, is purely that kind of new wave rapper. That is to say a modern artist rather versatile, relaxed and ... read more

The Melodic Blue is an incredibly flawed album, but I find Baby Keem and the music on here to be so entertaining, catchy, and personality-filled that it mostly makes up for it.

Baby Keem, Kendrick Lamar’s cousin, has been an artist I’ve been excited about for a while now. I really enjoyed his “DIE FOR MY BITCH” project, and I’ve liked a lot of his singles since. A few of them were pretty one dimensional however, and I felt that they showed some limitations ... read more

I'll be honest, I don't exactly follow any artists currently active in the hip-hop sphere. My hip hop taste is mostly confined to MF DOOM projects and 90's west coast/east coast/jazz rap. At least ...

Lil Nas X - MONTERO
82
After three fantastic singles, the expectations in MONTERO were really high and Lil Nas X didn’t disappoint us. This piece of work sounds mostly consistent and it’s full of bops, although I still think the singles (MONTERO, INDUSTRY BABY, SUN GOES DOWN) are better than 90% of the tracks in here. I the production here is phenomenal and Montero’s vocals are getting better and better (LIFE AFTER SALEM proves this).

The Best: INDUSTRY BABY, SUN GOES DOWN, DONT WANT IT, MONTERO, ... read more

Lil Nas X - MONTERO

Finalmente saiu o álbum, segurando mais um pouco eu ia morrer de ansiedade. As últimas músicas do álbum são muito boas.

O álbum começa com a faixa título "Montero", sempre gostei muito da música, o clipe então nem se fala.

Eu gostei do refrão de "dead right now" mesmo não tendo muita potência, gostei da música em um geral.

"industry baby" é a música ... read more

NCT 127 - Sticker

𝗦𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗿, 𝗡𝗖𝗧 𝟭𝟮𝟳
Oh gosh, “Sticker” is incredibly worse than the Stray Kids' title track, I'm kinda surprised. The album sounds very average for what I usually expect from NCT 127 and it's just disappointing. We really waited almost 1 year and a half for this (smh). The R&B stuff is the highlight of the LP, I'd like to hear more of this coming from them, not this “experimental” sh!t

Hamish Hawk - Heavy Elevator

Heavy elevator shows Hawk up the energy and production from previous works. There is a much higher focus on instrumentation and togetherness in the band compared to the vocal focus on laziest river. The vocals have also seen an improvement, showing even more expression and range than we’ve seen before.
This isn’t groundbreaking, it’s just basics done very well to produce a low key alt rock lp that I’ll keep coming back to. Interesting stories and narratives in the ... read more
Lil Nas X - MONTERO

get ready, because lil nas x is ready to storm the mainstream. known previously as a sort of singles specialist, he’s set out to change that by releasing his latest full-length, boasting fifteen tracks and 40+ minutes of content. though the best tracks on the album are still the singles (with the exception of “SUN GOES DOWN”), there are some deep cuts which make his huge album promotion cycle pay off. most notably, the songs with features are extremely catchy, even if they ... read more

MONTERO: CATCHY, QUALITY BUT ACCUSTOMED ALBUM

MONTERO is undoubtedly one of my most anticipated albums of the year. Nas started to drop music in 2020 again with HOLIDAY which is a track that I am not crazy about. But the latter single, MONTERO(Call Me By Your Name), is a track that I am crazy about. The risk in the MV (I don't usually talk about MVs but it is necessary here), context and sonic of the song is unbelievable. It is easily one of the best pop songs of the year and didn't grow ... read more
