    Savage Mode II Album Review

    Savage Mode II Album Review

    “Great men with great ideals can be separated by hundreds or even thousands of miles and still be in the same place. They can be years or even generations apart in age. And yet, somehow, find themselves on the exact same page. When these men join forces to put the focus of reaching the same goals... they are not two, but one. Instead of simply adding one's common attributes to another's, they somehow tend to multiply all attributes of both. Whether from St. Louis or East Atlanta. Whether from a savage land or a booming metropolis. Whether they are two or two billion, the greatest their numbers could ever become, is to truly become one. I now present to you SAVAGE MODE II." Morgan Freeman

    BLACKPINK "The Album

    BLACKPINK "The Album

    For all those who don't know, BLACKPINK just released their debut album. For years since their debut, this has been a long time coming. It's crazy to think about; the group is internationally known and favorited behind BTS to breakout into America. The crazy part is, before this album, they had only 13 songs out. Any controversies with the group will be saved for a different time. Without a doubt, that is what took this album this long to come.

    Chip Chrome & The Mono-tones Album Review

    Chip Chrome & The Mono-tones Album Review

    On September 25th, The Neighbourhood finally dropped “Chip Chrome & The Mono-tones” and I’m so glad it finally happened. Ever since their first single Middle Of Somewhere, I knew this album would be quite different and interesting. It took me forever though to gather my feelings on it because it was quite strange to digest, plus other things like college and work pushed it to the side, but now I finally have a firm grasp on what I think about this album. So let’s dive into “Chip Chrome & The Mono-tones” and go track by track through this strange journey.

    Blackpink "The Album" Review

    Blackpink finally released their first album “The Album” on October 2nd. When I tell you I was close to tears from the overwhelming excitement I had when The Album dropped...I was just over thrilled for Blackpink to finally have an Album. After 4 years we finally have The Album, where there are a total of 8 tracks. Not gonna lie I was a bit mad that we only got 8 tracks, but I can’t do anything about it so we will just be happy with what we got. Now I want to gather my thoughts and go through the album, track by track, and at the end rank the songs. So let’s dive into The Album.

    Cuties Soundtrack

    Cuties Soundtrack

    Netflix's Cuties is one of the most controversial films I have ever watched but you gotta admit the songs are a bop. Even though I am not a fan of the film I do adore the songs from the film. I have tried to find the songs from the film multiple times but I kept hearing the songs from the movie trailer and from the grotesque dance sequence until now I found the soundtrack finally uploaded on YouTube.

    Retro Review: Sneaker Pimps - Becoming X

    Retro Review: Sneaker Pimps - Becoming X

    Back in 1996, British-band Sneaker Pimps released their debut album ''Becoming X.'' The album is a beautiful journey through a melancholic and atmospheric soundscape. It opens with the darkwave-esque synths of "Low Place Like Home," which soars along perfectly with its bleak electronica and trip-hop beats before an almost rock chorus. A similar structure works equally as well for the second track "Tesko Suicide."

    John G. McDaid: Found in Translation

    John G. McDaid: Found in Translation

    Let me introduce you to John G. McDaid. He was my student in the MA in Media Studies Program at the New School for Social Research in New York City in the early 1980s. I was delighted when his first professionally published science fiction story "Jigoku No Mokushiroku" (in Asimov's Science Fiction magazine) won the Sturgeon Award in 1995, right around the time one of my first published stories, "The Chronology Protection Case," in Asimov's older sister magazine, Analog, was nominated for the Nebula Award. I was pleased when I began to see John start showing up in Media Ecology Association conferences about a decade later, singing a variety of catchy songs.

    Ranking The Songs On Everglow's -77.82X-78.29 Album

    After 7 months, Everglow finally had a comeback, and my forever heart is so happy right now. The wait was worth it! The girls came back with La Di Da with the EP -77.82X-78.29, consiting of 4 songs in total. This was an exceptional comeback. The retro future girl crush superhero vibes from this song and mv fits them so well, and every one got their own time to shine. I love this comeback, and I thought I would give my thoughts on each song and rank them. So Everglow Forever Let's Go!

    Wonderful Crazy Night

    Wonderful Crazy Night

    In the mid-2010s, Elton John's life was in a good place. He had a loving family with his husband David Furnish, and two sons, Zachary and Elijah. So his approach coming into the studio for the work that would become Wonderful Crazy Night was that he wanted to make an upbeat album with a live feel.

    Hardy Is NOT just a broke boy, He is OUR boy.

    Hardy Is NOT just a broke boy, He is OUR boy.

    When I decided to do a full album review on Hardy, I knew I had to be somewhere I could sit, listen to the words more intently, and not have the wind blowing from the windows being down...... I have listened to this album on repeat since it came out... I am a fan, and I honestly think Hardy should be president, because he's just that amazing.... Here is my honest review on an honest man whose album is one of the greatest albums I have ever listened to, and I'm putting him up there with Shania's Twain Come On Over Album, which I still to this day listen to with happiness in my soul.....Here's the long awaited album review on Hardy, enjoy bbys!
