May Ur Melanin Shield U From Ragnarok
Guevaras best work. His best lyricism to date and beats have cool chopped samples that has a distinguishable chipmunk soul/industrial glitch hop feel that?s really cool. Some songs bang and others are contemplative. However I feel a lot of songs drag on for too long and there are some bland spots on the record. Beats aren?t amazing but still really good. Solid 7.5
There Will Be No Super-Slave
Coming from a man who loves interludes there are too many interludes and random spots. Production clashes a lot of times making the songs message and composition watered down. However, production got better and his work overall more ambitious from previous efforts. This dude has a ton of potential and I can see a few great projects coming. Just stop comparing him to JPEGMAFIA for the love of God.
The Glowing Man
Transcendental and visceral record, with metamorphosing epics consisting of harsh drones, engaging soundscapes, occult grooves, and religious imagery through the lyrics. Array of sounds you?ll encounter throughout is spectacular. This album makes me feel like I?m learning the secrets of why and how and my mortal mind doesn?t know what to do with it. It?s not quite a ten, due to some shorter songs falling flat and the first half of Frankie M is slightly disappointing. Big deal since the first half is an easy 10 minutes. However, 9.5/10.
Conway the Machine
God Don't Make Mistakes
Gritty and bleak throughout. The hard violent tracks and the reflective ones work so well, but some songs like Guilty, Chanel Pearls, and the end of Wild Chapters feel lackluster. The Machine really made a name for himself with this great record.
Definition of classic. Always thought this album was gassed up, ?perfect hip-hop album? etc but damn this shit is legendary. Beats are impeccable, Nas? lyricism never ceases to completely blow me away. References, wordplay, rhyme schemes, flow is all top fucking notch. Album balances gritty street life and the brightness of youth perfectly, and the flow is possibly one of the best of any record I?ve heard. I was wrong, this deserves all its flowers. 10/10
Vocalist is fucking incredible. Deranged, and tortured every word seems to cut. Not everyone can make ?have you ever had ringworm? sound menacing. Spoken word passages are engaging. The only content this year that genuinely scared or disgusted me. Bass work is fundamental to the albums sound, sludgey attacks and even nu metal ish grooves. Really cool Guitar effects that sound like wailing wind in some tracks. Violent and rebellious album that paints a picture of real world dystopian circumstance. 8.5/10
Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine
An unhinged, self-loathing, rebellious, and albeit unique take on the synth filled sound popular at the time. It provides as the groundwork to the groundbreaking work soon to come but overall nothing special. Productions is bare bones and shallow on top of pretty basic song ideas. Plus the lyrics are genuinely dogshit at a lot of points. Incredibly basic and sometimes corny. Honestly a shock to me, since my exposure to Trent?s work was through select songs of the Downward Spiral and The Fragile which contained some of the best rock lyricism I have ever seen. Could have been a pretty good 4 song ep. Head Like A Hole, Sanctified, Something I Ca
