    Woo - 'BLACK OUT' Album Review

    Woo - 'BLACK OUT' Album Review

    In many ways, 2018’s Af was the true kick-start of what would evidently be a successful career for Woo Won-Jae. Sure, there were songs like the magnetically fast-paced chart-topper “We Are,” and the introspective double-single Anxiety, but it wasn’t until the 23-year-old tried his hand at a long-form extended play that audiences got a true taste of what the young rapper was all about. Thus, when the unabating pensiveness of his prior releases was allowed to combine with a more fluid, coherent structure and larger-scale ideas, it was only natural that fans started to flock to the man who was, at the time, AOMG’s youngest signee.

    "TWICE AS TALL" MY EXPERIENCE/REVIEW.

    "TWICE AS TALL" MY EXPERIENCE/REVIEW.

    Personally, I didn’t come across the tracklist and official announcement for the release of the musical genius fifth studio album until a few days ago, when tons of tweets rolled out and it was impossible not to be aware that the African giant was about to unleash gems upon the world.

    'The Diving Board'

    'The Diving Board'

    For his next album following his very successful collaboration with Leon Russell The Union, Elton John once again turned to producer T-Bone Burnett, who suggested that Elton return to the piano-bass-drums lineup that had served him well in his early career. Accordingly, the majority of this album is anchored by Elton on piano, Raphael Saadiq on bass , Jay Bellerose on drums and Keefus Ciancia on keyboards, with Davey Johnstone and the touring band left on the sidelines. Bernie Taupin wrote all the lyrics for the album in just a few days time. Elton described it as his most exciting solo record in a long time. The album was originally to be released in the Fall of 2012 but numerous delays pushed its release to the Fall of 2013.

    DAVIDO: "A GOOD TIME" review.

    DAVIDO: "A GOOD TIME" review.

    Davido is the new sensation and talk of this generation when it comes to a lot of topics apart from the familiar entertainment scene with which he is associated with. His style, presence, bogus lifestyle and swagger puts him in the news time after time.

    A revisit to Taylor Swift's Speak Now

    A revisit to Taylor Swift's Speak Now

    Speak Now is, objectively, Taylor Swift’s first big album. Right? Right. No competition. She wrote the whole thing herself as a teenager.

    Album Review: 'To Better Days' by Slaves

    Album Review: 'To Better Days' by Slaves

    In light of the brutal murder of George Floyd, the band made a statement that they will be changing their name. This is the final album under the name Slaves and is the first album with new vocalist Matt McAndrew. This album is in the point of view of all things that go wrong in someones life, and just looking for a way out. An absolute banger album with heavy chords and beats throughout. Let's dive in!

    Album Review: 'Pink Elephant' by Stand Atlantic

    Album Review: 'Pink Elephant' by Stand Atlantic

    Stand Atlantic has been one of the hottest and fastest climbing bands in the pop punk world in the last 2 years. Their sophomore album, does not disappoint. The title itself tells you just what this album is about. Normally when someone sees a pink elephant, it is the cause of drunken hallucinations, and this album walks you through the life of an alcoholic. From questioning life to using liquid courage as a coping mechanism, you will NOT be disappointed and will bop your way through this album!
