    Review of Rob Sheffield's Dreaming The Beatles: 4 of X

    Review of Rob Sheffield's Dreaming The Beatles: 4 of X

    I don't want to get too far into Rob Sheffield's addictive book without posting another review, so I thought I'd check in here after finishing a chapter on George, which comes after discussions of Ringo (which I talk about in my last review) and Paul and John, which are of course a part of every chapter.

    Review of Rob Sheffield's Dreaming the Beatles: 3 of X

    In the next chapter of Rob Sheffield's Dreaming the Beatles -- I just realized that the chapters are not numbered, which means that each chapter is a piece of a hologram, a snapshot of the whole, like a verse in many a song -- we get a deconstruction of "Dear Prudence," which Sheffield holds to be one of The Beatles' best, and I agree (though they have so many bests the term hasn't the usual meaning for me).

    Russ is a major talent and before I get into the album I want to take a moment to recognize the artist.

    In Depth Review of Logic’s ‘Everybody’

    In Depth Review of Logic’s ‘Everybody’

    The production of the project is top notch. Executive produced by his partner in crime 6ix, the album also includes production from Logic himself, No ID, and a couple others. Features include the likes of Killer Mike, Khalid, Alessia Cara, Black Thought, Chuck D and more. Everybody did great in its first week in sales, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. And although it didn’t do so good in its second week, who cares? Logic is one talented guy, and this is a super elaborate concept album.

    Fifth Harmony, the Artists of the Future

    Fifth Harmony is one of the most popular female pop groups in the world and has plenty of reasons to be. The girls are full of energy with which they make their music. They are four strong personalities who complement each other. Camila Cabello left the group but the girls are still powerful.

    An Ode to Hip Hop

    An Ode to Hip Hop

    I first wrote around this time last year. It served as my first piece to open up my Hip Hop blog. My blog has led me to dive in deeper into Hip Hop, and I've decided to expand on this piece. From my heart to these words you see, I hope you can relate.

    One Bowie Fangirl's Interpretation of Blackstar

    One Bowie Fangirl's Interpretation of Blackstar

    Although as a child, I was fed a fairly varied diet of good music, it’s fair to say that my ‘bread and butter’ was definitely Bowie. From starry-eyed mooning over Labyrinth to teen sulking accompanied by Station to Station, his music pervaded a substantial portion of my life.

    Diss Foolishness

    Diss Foolishness

    As I write this my Poshmark notification just stated "Life is too short to hold grudges" so you know I need to write this. 2017 is one of those years that is not sure what to label itself. It reminds me of how they labeled my Generation "X" because we were, and still kind of are to this day, unknown. Musically, the landscape is dry. I am talking Sahara Desert dry. Yes there have been albums released but because everything is so flash in the pan, I can't keep up. Thanks you Net gods for Tidal and my younger co workers. I honestly cannot keep up but I try my best.
