5.0 classic
Beach House Bloom
Exemplary modern Dream Pop album. I not only see this as Beach House's best record, but as one of the best records of the whole decade. The sound design is flawless, everything sounds great. The songs are all amazing, also songwriting-wise. Definitely a classic for me.
Bjork Vespertine
An absolute masterpiece! This just goes straight to the heart. The production too is amazing,
still after all this time sounds up to date. Especially I like the many intimate moments on the
album, like Bjorks whispery vocals on "Cocoon". Never before has music sounding this quiet
affected me so much. The album ends of with one of Bjorks best tracks "Unison" which combines all
the great things of the album into one song, which features an incredible hook. rI know that many
prefer the album "Homogenic", but for me this more pop inspired approach works even better, easily
her best album.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
Interpol Turn on the Bright Lights
Absolutely incredible album, probaply my favourite debut ever. Every single track on here is amazing. One of the things I like about this is record is how balanced instruments and vocals are. Paul's voice is rather monotone, so it allows the guitar, bass and drums to take the spotlight. But despite the vocals sounding monotone, they still convey emotions, for example through repetitions of certain lines. These repetitions also make the lyrics really catchy at times. What else shines here are the basslines. Since the guitars mostly occupy the higher frequency spectrum, you can often hear the bass very clearly.
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The classic status is totally deserved. The songwriting is amazing, as well as the raw performance
and lyrics carrying so much emotion. One of my favouritte moment, which there are many of, is
"King of Carrot Flowers Part 2". I would just love to be in a moshpit with this playing live. The
following title track features one of my favourite lines ever:"How strange it is to be anything at
all." Actually I am not sure what this is supposed to mean, but I just adore it, however I try to
interpret it. In general this is a great album to sing along with, but at times, for example on
"Oh Comely", it's super difficult to catch breath. That Jeff allegedly managed to record the
vocals to this song all in one take makes it even more impressive. The closer of the album also
doesn't dissapoint at all, it's actually one of the strongest album closers in my opinion.
Radiohead Kid A
Radiohead OK Computer
Radiohead In Rainbows
Awesome album! Probaply the most consistent album in my opinion. With that I mean that really every song of the album speaks to me. Also I think it's quite remarkable that Radiohead managed to make a more radio-friendly album without loosing much of edge in their songs. There are still things that can grow on one as for example the heavy percussion on reckoner. What has also always fascinated me are the lyrics the album ends with: "Because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen". I still don't know if this is rather sad or uplifting, but I know, that it's beautiful.
Weyes Blood Titanic Rising
Incredible album! Easily the best of the year, and for sure one of the best of the decade. The Songwriting is absolutely astonishing, as well as the lyricism. I definitely find myself singing along to most of the album. Some memorable moments that stand out for me are for one the ending of "Movies", which is probably the best track on the album, and for second the very beginning of "Wild Time", consisting of a wonderful and playful vocal melody. If I had to point out anything negative about the record, then it would be that in my opinion the song "Mirror Forever" doesn't quite keep up with the other songs. But that is just a minor issue that only slightly affects the listening experience.

4.5 superb
Alex Cameron Forced Witness
Incredible album! Every song here is a total banger with not only excellent songwriting, but also catchy and funny lyrics. Expecially the first 4 tracks really steal the show for me.
Angel Olsen My Woman
Arcade Fire Neon Bible
Amazing album. I have nothing negative to say about it. It's super consistent, I love every song. Great lyrics, songwriting and energy. Just front to back a very enjoyable listen.
Arcade Fire Reflektor
This album grew on me heavily. Both Parts of the album have great songs and it's own nice theme, rwhile still somehow being connected with each other. CD 1 is about love in the "reflective age" rwhich probably refers to the modern information age. A key motiv is that digitalism connects us rbut also seperates on another level. There is really alot in this album that gives you to think rand leaves room for interpretation. Cd 2 is more focused and about the story of Orpheus and rEuredice, and in my opinion Arcade Fire portraits it in a really heard-wrenching way. My favourite rsongs of the album lie on this half, for example 'It's Never Over' or 'Afterlife'. I still rremember really feeling these songs expecially when I was in love. All in all a very consistent ralbum with a little better second half and in my opinion their best work to date.
Big Thief Capacity
Heartwrenching record. This album essentially summarizes in what I love about Big Thief. The emotion, the raw performance, the weird drum patterns, it's all there. Among these songs are also some underrated gems, like "Watering", whose vocals personally hit me harder then any other, and "Great White Shark", which features a solo with an amazing energy. In my opinion, this is easily their best record.
Broken Social Scene You Forgot It in People
Once you get used to it, most songs are total bangers. The album is pretty divers, but still manages to keep itself together somehow. What I do not understand is the popularity of 'Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl', why does it have these numbers?
Car Seat Headrest Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
This is an fantastic EP. Every song is great and they all fit together very well. What more could
you want from an EP?
Cocteau Twins Heaven or Las Vegas
Absolute classic album. Super consistent, every song is a Dream Pop banger. I really can't say
anything bad about this album.
What I find very funny about this project are the lyrics. Listening to these lyrics feels to me
like what non english speakers hear when they hear english. There are some familiar words everyone
knows, like "Las Vegas", but you barely understand a sentence. It's also hilarious that online
there are several websites with different lyrics for these songs, and they make no sense at all.
Deerhunter Microcastle
In my opinion this is Deerhunter at their best. Microcastle is super consitent, not one single track on here I don't enjoy. Not only are many of these songs catchy, they also come with great sonic experimentation.
Destroyer Kaputt
Flawless album. There are really no tracks on here which are not very good. Incredibly catchy songwriting and good execution, with a versatile sound pallet. Important to mention is also that despite instantaneously likeable themes, this album just doesn't grow old with time.
Midlake The Trials of Van Occupanther
Man, I really love this album. It's super consistent, the only song that I would cut from the tracklist is In this Camp. Otherwise we have top material here, for example Van Occupanther and Branches are amazing. What I also like are the lyrical themes of life in simpler times. Especially Bandits stands out lyrically in my opinion.
New Order Substance
Incredible compilation. These are not only some of the best songs of New Order's whole career, but also probaply the best versions of these songs. The B-sides of the two disc version are not as impressive as disc 1, but here and there are still some gems to find, like for example 'Lonesome Tonight'.
Protomartyr Relatives in Descent
This is, in my opinion, the best post punk album of this century so far. Every track slaps. The lyrics are on point, I love the dark dark humor involved on many of these, as well as the criticism which lies behind it. For me, "My Sister" is one of the best album closers ever and feels especially rewarding when the "She's trying to reach you" line from the opener comes back. Just an incredible experience.
Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool
Amazing how Radiohead still manages to pull off a masterpiece after all this time! Unlike most other bands in their twenties, they even expand on new ideas and thus are not losing their edge at all. For example I believe it's new for Thom Yorke to experiment with latin sounds like on the beautiful "Present Tense", which is probaply my favourite on this album. Also this album feels more intimate than usual, but that's not a bad thing with how it is realized here.
Radiohead OKNOTOK 1997-2017
The Flaming Lips The Soft Bulletin
Such an excellent album! Man, there are so many great things to say about this record. It's kind of sounding raw but also pure at the same time, I really can't explain it. The instrumentation is incredible, also great drum playing. Also fantastic lyrics, especially I like them on the Spiderbite Song, that's when they are really funny but also deliver a great message. One of my favourite moments of the album is probably that one part in The Spark That Bled after Wayne sings "caused a chain reaction", such an awesome instrumental and vocal combination. I must say that I enjoy the first half of the album a little more than the second; in the end I would give them a 10 and an 8 that average to 9.
The National Boxer Live in Brussels
I like this version more than the studio version. The main reason for that is Matt's voice. On the original record it sounds much rougher, which I don't like. Also, they're obviously very good live.
The Smiths The Queen Is Dead
Easily The Smith's best album, and to me it has some strong Karaoke vibes. This is because not only every song is catchy due melody, but also often features catchy and funny lyrics. Even the sad songs would be great for Karaoke because they are so dramatic. Out of all cuts on this project, I think 'The Boy With the Thorn in His Side' is often overlooked but actually one of the best.
The Strokes The New Abnormal
Amazing record. This is easily among my favourites of the band, if not The favourite. The
production sounds incredibly clean, and despite being known for their garage rock, the boys
actually make it work. I can't say a single bad thing about The New Abnormal, its just a great
Fun fact: In my opinion the closer 'Ode to the Mets' sound suspiciously alot like 'The Frontier
Index' by the Silver Jews.

4.0 excellent
Adrianne Lenker songs
Georgous Folk album. The performances and songwriting here are organic, raw and heartwarming, some of Lenkers best to date.
Alex Cameron Miami Memory
Great album front to back, with no single dissapointment in the tracklist. Though I think that it does not quite live up to its predecessor, which had even stronger hooks and funnier lyrics.
Alvvays Alvvays
Beautiful Dream Pop record. It has super rememberable hooks and great aesthetics. Basically, it checks all the boxes for a fun listen even after many spins.
Angel Olsen All Mirrors
I like it! Interesting change of pace for Angel, since some tracks here remind me of early gothic
like from Dead Can Dance, which is certainly a surprise. Songwriting-wise the album can't quite
keep up with its predecessor, but that it makes up with just heavenly string arrangements. Also
the production is flawless! Most tracks are great, but especially I enjoy the closer "Chance".
Angels and Airwaves Love
Ten years after I obsessed over this project as a teenager, I think it still holds up as a great
and the bands best project. It has a very good flow, and Tom's singing sounds much better than
Arcade Fire Funeral
Beach House Teen Dream
I am not sure what to say about this album, except that it's beautiful. Everything, the songs, the performance, the lyrics are great. Especially I like the outros to the songs. I remember when I first heard Silver Soul I thought the lyrics were "Please happen again", and I really liked this, but later I was a little bit dissapointed to read it's "It's happening again".
Beach House Depression Cherry
Another gorgeous album by these guys. This one feels slightly less upbeat then usual, in a good way. The only negative thing I can say is that some songs, like Wildflower or Bluebird, are missing something in the end. Other songs end in glorious instrumental passages, but these just end.
Bjork Homogenic
A great album! What I, among other things, really like are Björks unconventional word choices. For example in All Neon Like she uses the phrase "fetus style" instead of "fetus like". I find this very amusing because "style" is a rather 'cool' word that you wouldn't associate with something uncool like a fetus.
Blonde Redhead Misery is a Butterfly
Super consitent and fun album. All tracks are great. The soundscape of the album feels very focused, but there is some variety coming from the constant change of vocalists. On some tracks you hear Kazu, on other the twins, whereas "Pink Love" is the only track to feature mixed vocals. All in all I cannot complain, it's probaply the bands best work.
Coldplay Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
This is easily my favourite Coldplay album. Many great tracks on here, in fact it's very consistent. I like the asian motives that sometimes come up in the album, as well the idea of hidden tracks. These hidden tracks are underappreciated in my opinion, they all are among the best songs on here. What especially surprised me is the track "Chinese Sleep Chant" which is hidden in "Yes", and is actually very shoegazy. I would have never expected Coldplay diving into this territory. Also underrated here is the album closer, probaply my favourite of the collection.
Deerhunter Halcyon Digest
Funeral Suits Lily of the Valley
Amazing Indie Pop Album! Very consistent, indeed there is not one song on this record that I don't adore.
Hideout Rookie
Highly overlooked album. Features super catchy songwriting and thus makes a fun listening experience.
Interpol Antics
Great follow up to a classic album! This one feels stylistically broader, which shows that the band wanted to evolve. What stands out to me here are the outros to some of the tracks, for example the "We're sailing to norway" line on "Take You on a Cruise", or the instrumental outro to "Not Even Jail". This particular moment is also a reminder that Interpol's bass work is still superb. All in all it's a great listen front to back.
Magnolia Electric Co Magnolia Electric Co
This isn't necessarily my kind of style, but I can't deny that these just exremely well written songs.The performance and emotion is definitely there.
My Bloody Valentine Loveless
The noisy textures and the heavy use of repetition make this album super trippy. 'To Here Knows When' hits me especially hard.
New Order Low-Life
Nirvana Nevermind
Ought Sun Coming Down
Very nice Art/Post Punk album with great energy and often hilarious lyrics. The vocals sell this for me.
Radiohead The Bends
Radiohead Hail to the Thief
In my opinion this is one of Radioheads most unconsistent albums, but still not a bad one. There
is a hand full of tracks here that I can still appreciate, but not really am into like most of
their other songs. The album also seems a bit too long and the tracklisting does not work well.
But what saves this album are some really good tracks, and there is also a hand full of those
here. The most I probably enjoy "Where I end and You begin", "Scatterbrain"(the most underrated in
my opinion) and "Myxomatosis", which is for me surprisingly a quite uplifting song despite the
heaviness and the dark vibe.
Radiohead Knives Out
Amazing EP, every song is great. I am always surprised how good Radiohead's non-album material is.
Radiohead The Daily Mail/Staircase
Both songs are magnificent in their own way. Really nothing to complain about.
Radiohead In Rainbows Disk 2
Great collection of additional songs! There are definetly some heartwrenching moments here, for example on "Last flowers". I especially like the closer "Four minute warning".
Sharon Van Etten Epic
One of her best projects. Instrumentally simple, but heart-wrenching storytelling and songwriting
at Sharon's peak.
Sharon Van Etten Are We There
I figured that this album hits the most when not having listened to it for some time. When you keep repeating it some themes begin to become a little annoying, for example the chorus of "Break me", but when listened to again after some break, the whole album is just amazing.
Sigur Ros Agætis byrjun
Stereolab Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night
This album runs through some highs and lows in its first half, but definitely wins me over with the amazing second half. The band definitely safed the best tracks for last, also since the closer is the best song here, in my opinion. All in all the album sounds great, and can be quite the experience.
Tenci My Heart Is An Open Field
Exceptional album. This might not be for everyone, but the unique emotional singing style and slow paced folk instrumentals definitely work for me. Always listening with a painful look my the face.
The Antlers Hospice
Incredibly sad and emotional album. Alot of these emotions is carried by the lyrics, rso only after reading them I really got into the album. What else is remarkable is the use of musical themes in the album. Some of the melodies are not only used in one song, but in multiple songs, in different settings. For example the verses in the amazing closer "Epilogue" carry the same melody as "Bear", but in an accoustic setting. Also, the end of "Atrophy" is the same theme as the end of "Wake". With this reuse of material and the incredibly heartwrenching story that is told in the lyrics, the album feels very consistent.
The Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Excellent concept album! I like how the tunes, though really catchy, remain enjoyable because of
the interesting sounds used here and there. It's great to hear the main theme of the album not
only in the lyrics, but also in these sounds. The lyrics I also enjoy very much by the way. The
most "concept" like song of the album is in my opinion "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part 2",
and it works incredibly well with it's placing in the tracklisting between "- Part 1" and "In the
Morning of the Magicians", which is probably my favourite. A kind of funny thing is that some of
the sounds on this track remind me of the skype-call-sound, that really used to confuse me in the
beginning. You see, I could probably write a whole review about this album. All in all it's
awesome and I recommend it to anyone.
The Flaming Lips American Head
Nice to see a band that is so late after its peak still put out great music. None of the songs on
here stand out as amazing, but the album itself is quite the immersive experience, and feels like
a long dream. Especially I recommend a headphone listen, that worked the best for me.
The Hidden Cameras The Smell of Our Own
Super catchy songs, often intimate and gay. My favourite is probably 'Boys of Melody'.
The Magnetic Fields Holiday
Super catchy and fun album. Every single track is great. I also want to note that the lyrics on many of the songs are very catchy and rememberable themselves, because of funny imagination and word choices, e.g. the line with the prostitutes in Thailand.
The National Boxer
The National at the peak of their songwriting! Also very well balanced between ballads and faster paced tracks. As with most National records this again features excellent drumming and at times catchy intelligent lyrics. A great example of this is the opening line of Green Gloves. One complaint I have with this album is the very rough sounding voice of Matt Berninger. I think that on following records his voice improves greatly.
The National High Violet
The National Sleep Well Beast
Great and much needed stylistic change for The National. This album feels different due to a slightly more electronic sound. This sound is mostly cohesive through the album and has a great recognition value. The songs feature good songwriting and also often catchy lyrics, like the repeating theme "I'll still destroy you", which can be probably interpreted in many different ways. Some tracks in the middle of the tracklisting don't impress me too much, but there is plenty other satisfying material on here. For example "The system only dreams in total darkness" is a highlight, expecially when played live. This track also serves as an example of the superb production on this record.
The Smiths Hatful of Hollow
Great compilation. Some of The Smith's best songs are on here, and in my opinion often also the best version of those songs. I generally prefer the more rough mix on this record over the very clean album versions. Some of the songs near the end of the tracklisting don't impress me like the first songs, but still in general it makes a nice listen.
The Strokes Is This It
This is undoubtly one of the most influential records of the post punk revival scene and even modern rock music in general. While I am not as crazy over it as with some albums that Is This It had an impact on, it's still a great listen. The album is very consistent, actually not one bad track on here, although I must say that the quality of songs slightly decreases in the second half. A great counter example to this is my actually favourite song of the album, 'Hard to explain'. While not as catchy as some other hooks in the tracklist, it just has the best energy, I guess it's just hard to explain :D
Tindersticks Tindersticks II
Great collection of ballads. While I prefer the more dense instrumetation of Tindersticks' debut, this project still satisfies with a sentimental performance of vocals and strings. An unexpected changeup, however, is the catchy and upbeat "My Sister", probably my favourite track on here.
Tindersticks Tindersticks
Amazing album! Especially for a debut. I love the grand arrangements, and the at times eerie edge to it. Despite the great number of tracks on here the album does not feel too long, which means it's consistent. I also admire what they did with "A Sweet Sweet Man", atleast I think splitting it in three parts works better for the song than putting it together. In total a great listen.
Tindersticks Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre
Tyler, the Creator IGOR
White Lies To Lose My Life
Unlike apperently most other people I find this album to be very consistent. I really can't think of a track here I don't enjoy and picking a least favourite is also not easy. The vocals on this record sound emotional to me but not to the point that they are whiny. I also enjoy the spectrum of instrumentation on the songs, not too narrow to sound repetitive, but also not too wide so the songs feel like they belong together.
White Lies Big TV
A great record! Huge in comparison with the rather lack luster "Ritual" in my opinion. Also very
consistent, I enjoy every track on this one.
White Lies Friends
Very fun to listen and consistent record. Not sure why it gets so many poor ratings here. Of course it's not their best project, but it gets pretty close for me. Outstanding in my opinion is the track 'Swing', mostly due to its amazing outro section.
Why? Alopecia
Zach McCoy the dirty future
In my opinion this is Mccoys greatest project. It took a while to appreciate but the expirience ended up to be very rewarding. Although the singing is very monotone and might sound like Zach is being bored, the album stays diverse through different songwriting approaches. I also like some lyrics alot, like the hilarious phrase "Pieces of shit stick together", which I think of as a methaphor for people.

3.5 great
Adrianne Lenker abysskiss
Amen Dunes Freedom
Great album. I can not actually say anything bad about it, it's super consistent and just delivers. Very interesting I find the lack of typical songstructures on this record, the songs do not follow any specific pattern, but rather just flow. You would think that this makes them less memorable, but they are still very catchy, and part of it is due to catchy lyrics.
Angels and Airwaves Love - Part II
Somehow I seem to be one of the few that find the first 3 cuts weaker than the rest of the album. These first songs seem overblown to me, while the rest is actually quite consistent. I like the transitions between the songs and small hidden details like the accord pattern of "All The Small Things" used in "My Heroine". In general a good album!
Angels and Airwaves Chasing Shadows
Really catchy and fresh sounding EP with crisp production. I also like the genre-direction in rgenerall.
Arcade Fire The Suburbs
A very enjoyable album with a nice nostalgic feel to it. I like the theme of growing up and the lyrics, as with most work of Arcade Fire. What for example really touches me is the line "So can you understand, why I want a daughter while I'm still young...", and I don't even know why but it resonates. Sometimes the album might feel a little long but if it doesn't it's great.
Arctic Monkeys AM
Atoms for Peace Amok
This album feels more like a Solo project of Thom than a colloborate effort by members of Atoms
for Peace, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy it. When comparing it to the Eraser, Amok focuses
more on percussion than on melody. And in the percussion the songs really shine. Despite the beats
being probably programmed, they still feel very alive and dynamic, for me especially on the song
"Unless". And the album is well enough produced that in between those many layers of percussion
elements other instruments and Thoms voice still have space to unfold. In terms of songwriting, I
think there is a tiny bit of consitency lack here, but I still enjoy most of the songs. Some of
them took me a long time to appreciate, like the amazing closer title track.
Belle and Sebastian Lazy Line Painter Jane
Belle and Sebastian 3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light
Big Thief Masterpiece
Beautiful debut album. Already on this project Big Thief come up with great songwriting and performance. Lenker really knows how to convince an emotion with her voice. The definite highlight here for me is 'Paul'.
Big Thief U.F.O.F.
Big Thief never dissapoints! This one is less heavy and more folky, I like it.
Big Thief Demos Vol. 1 - Topanga Canyon, CA - Feb 2018
Bjork Medulla
This definitely takes some listens to get used to, but can be a rewarding experience in the end.
Bjork Debut
Bjork Selmasongs
Great songs for a great movie. Although this is the soundtrack to 'Dancer in the Dark' and
watching the movie gives the songs a bittersweet meaning, the project also works great as a stand-
alone. In particular, some of Bjoerks best work is hidden here. It is also worth to mention that
'I've seen it all' is a wonderful ballad featuring none other than Thom Yorke, although I am not
sure if his and Bjoerks voices are meant for each other.
Blink-182 Dogs Eating Dogs
Blonde Redhead 23
In my opinion this album does not live up to its predecessor, but is still great. The especially 'Dr Strangeluv' is fantastic. Generally I noticed that I am enjoying Kazu's vocals also more than Amedo's, and luckily on this album most of the songs are with her singing.
Bombay Bicycle Club I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose
Great indie pop/rock album! Also features some interesting electronic experimentation at times. Trackwise, I think "Lamplight", "Evening - Morning" and "Cancel on me" definetly stand out. I enjoy the majority of the tracks, but some might feel worn out after some time, like "What if".
Box Car Racer Box Car Racer
Grew up on this, and actually still kinda feel it. Very nice drumming.
Coldplay A Rush of Blood to the Head
The first half of this album I find, up to some decent songs, rather unconsistent. However, the second half is great, featuring widely overlooked gems like "Green Eyes" or ""Warning Sign".
Coldplay Parachutes
Great debut album. Some songs are weaker than others in my opinion, but it's still pretty consistent. Especially I like the short title track and Sparks. I really like how the lyrics in Sparks seem to be encouraging at first, but then, in a subliminal way, turn to the opposite, creating a sad theme.
Deerhunter Weird Era Cont.
This album is sounds very weird, both sonically and songwriting-wise. But this is not necessarily a bad thing. In my opinion it is a nice addition to Microcastle, it does not feel out of place but is also stylistically different enough for both albums not to sound repetitive.
Destroyer Destroyer's Rubies
Very fun album, definitely makes me go Lalala, which is not usual for me. Favourite track:
Watercolours into the Ocean
Elbow Little Fictions
Gorillaz Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez
Green Day American Idiot
This was the first ever album I fell in love with when I was about 10 years old. Now I don't enjoy it that much anymore, but certainly it's not a bad album. The storytelling across this project is great and adds an extra layer of enjoyment when listening to American Idiot.
Jenny Hval Blood Bitch
Jim Sullivan U.F.O.
Very fun little album, with great songwriting and performance. The only thing that I don't like is the way Sullivan ends his songs, many of them just fade out after a while.
Josin In the Blank Space
Great debut. Some people see the very obvious Thom Yorke influence as a negative aspect of this album, but I don't mind, the emotion is still there. Some tracks may seem a bit long winded, but in general this record is a nice listening experience.
Kate Bush Hounds of Love
Great Pop album. I like the catchier first half of the record very much, while I find the more experimental second half rather unconsistent. Still I appreciate the ongoing theme of this half, with 'Under Ice' introducing us to the imagery a person waiting to be rescued from the cold water. Sadly musically this story is portrayed all over the place, but some songs are still highlights, like for example my favourite song here, the album closer.
Kero Kero Bonito Bonito Generation
It took some work for me to get into this bright and playful style of pop, but in the end it sure paid of! For a debut this album is great, although not every song can keep up with the highlights.
Kero Kero Bonito Time 'n' Place
Impressive how Kero Kero Bonito follows up their debut album with a project that is of similar quality, but with a big change in sound. Despite stepping into new sonic territory, they still manage to keep some of the old aesthetics in the songs, which you can notice by the catchiness of the songwriting. My favourite tracks would probably be 'Time Today' and 'Only Acting', which actually blends in much nicer in the tracklist of the EP 'TOTEP', where it's also featured on.
Kero Kero Bonito Civilisation II
Krill Lucky Leaves
Solid album. Has a raw, emotional energy to it, mainly because if the great vocals. The lyrics, which often seem self-pitiful, add alot to the experience. My favourite part is the dialog between the protargonist, a twig and a grass in "Purity of heart".
LCD Soundsystem Sound of Silver
Low Double Negative
Love the dark atmosphere and noisy textures on this album. Also like the transitions between the first three tracks. The high point of the album for me would have to be the noisy climax in "Always Trying To Work It Out", it's amazing! What holds the record back at times is boring songwriting. Moreover, I highly recommend seeing Low live, I did and it was one of the best concerts in my life! I don't know what it is exactly about their live performance, but loved it despite not knowing most of the tracks.
Makthaverskan II
Very fun and consistent album. It doesn't have the greatest production, but that's not a big problem if the songs are that catchy.
Makthaverskan Ill
Very fun and energetic album, perfect for dancing like noone is watching. Almost every track is great, especially I like the first three.
Mercury Rev Deserter's Songs
Good album. The first half of the LP features has very strong tracks, both in songwriting and performance. In my opinion the second half falls of a bit, with not as consitent songwriting and some questionable production choices, like for example on my least favourite track here, 'The Funny Bird'. Still not a bad listen all together.
My Chemical Romance The Black Parade
Nilufer Yanya Miss Universe
Amazing debut album. This is a blast to listen to. The songwriting, the performance and the production is all done very well. Yanya has her own unique style and knows her strengths. My favourite song here would probably be 'Melt'. The only thing on the album that I don't really care about is the concept which is going on with a few short intro/outro tracks.
Nirvana In Utero
Perfume Genius Set My Heart On Fire Immediately
The album starts off very strong, but slightly loses its focus in the second half. Still a pleasent listen.
Protomartyr The Agent Intellect
great post punk album with an aggressive vibe. I also like the lyrics, they're kind of funny often.
Protomartyr Consolation
Radiohead The King of Limbs
Great album with a fascinating alternative approach. The first two songs can be a little rough, but the songs on the second half of the tracklist definitely make it an album worth listening to.
Radiohead Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Sigur Ros Takk...
Compared to other projects of Sigur Ros, this album feels more accessible, which is not a bad thing. In my opinion it even adds alot, as I did not really connect with more long winded releases like (). The catchy shorter songs here are alot of fun, but also the long tracks which go back to their earlier style are great here. I guess for me diversity in an album is important, it makes it easier to tolerate a long runtime. Fortunately, 'Takk...' is some of the bands more diverse albums.
Sonic Youth Daydream Nation
I know this is considered by many as a masterpiece, but honestly I don't really feel it that much. Of course I still like many songs on here, like "Teen Age Riot", "The Sprawl" and "Candle", but I would not give this album anything close to a 10/10.
Stereolab Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
Some ideas on this album did not age well, like for example the vocal effects on 'Golden Ball' and 'Analogue Rock'. However most ideas did age well, such that the album is still quite enjoyable for fans of the band and Noise Pop/Drone.
Talking Heads Talking Heads: 77
Very strong for a debut. Byrne's charismatic vocals sell this one for me. What I don't understand is the hype around 'Psycho Killer',as in my opinion it is actually one of the weaker tracks.
Talking Heads Speaking in Tongues
The Cure Disintegration
I must say that I don't fully get the hype, it's a good album for sure, but can sometimes feel a little long-winded. That's because the songs last very long and show little to no change up in song structure. Also, the incredibly emotional vocals and lyrics can feel very whiny, and I mean not in a good way. But to this one actually gets used to in the course of getting to know the record. Still, in the end it's a nice listening experience most of the time.
The Fiery Furnaces EP
Very fun to listen to with a great flow, expecially in the first half. The second half is not as strong in my opinion, but of course still decent.
The Gaslight Anthem The '59 Sound
incredibly catchy album with interesting mix of pop-punk and country
The Kooks Inside In/Inside Out
The National Alligator
What I like about the album:
- Great lyrics that sticks (like "it's a common fetish for a doting man to ballerina on the coffee
table, cock in hand")
- well balanced instumentation
- consistently outstanding drumming
- generally great songs

What I don't like:
- sometimes the production doesn't keep up with the wide instrumental spektrum (for example on the
track "The Geese of Beverly Road")
- I don't find the album 100% consistent, some songs get boring after a while (for example "Val
Jester", "Looking for Astronauts")

In general a great album, but comparing it with the reviews on this website, it's overrated
The National Trouble Will Find Me
When I first heard this album, I immediately loved it. But after some listens some songs weren't
as enjoyable anymore. In general I still liked half of the album very much, but the other half not
that much. Tracks I didn't prefer are 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 13. Some of these fell a bit drowning in the
large number of instruments involved. But I have to say, coming back to this album after a while,
the songs felt more fresh again.
Little details that I really enjoy are:
- The drum cymbal near the end of Heavenfaced
- The mini-drop in Humiliation
- "It wasn't like a rain it was more like a sea" on Pink Rabbits
In general I still enjoy the album quite a bit, despite its flaws
The Strokes Room on Fire
Definitely a great album, not falling short of expectations after their incredible debut. This one still features the catchy hooks and great energy, but with a cleaner sound. However, after many repeated listens I feel like the replayability of this album definitely does not keep up with the debut, but on a fresh listen it's just a lovely experience.
The War On Drugs A Deeper Understanding
This album sounds just amazing on first listen, however the impression might change with repeated listens. After a while some songs felt more stale and long winded. Also the lyrics do nothing for me, seem generic and plane. In general it is still quite the enjoyable album, with great vibe.
Thom Yorke The Eraser
While this project has some songs that don't really convince in the first half of the tracklisting, it shines in the second half. In my opinion "Skip Divided", "Cymbal Rush" and especially "Atoms for Peace" are amazing. Not a bad debut.
Thom Yorke Anima
The album starts off with "Traffic", my least favourite song here. I just cannot stand these obnoxious snares that come in during the chorus. But the album takes a quick turn with the next three tracks, in my opionion its best. "Twist" is amazing, and "Dawn Chorus" is just gorgeous. The remaining songs, while not incredible, are still decent, with "Impossible Knots" sticking out for me. Also worth mentioning is the great production work done here. Everything sounds super crisp and clean. All in all a nice listen, a good 7/light 8 from me.
Volbeat Rock The Rebel/Metal The Devil
I used to play this alot when growing up, and I still kinda see why. The songwriting on here is just so damn catchy.
Volbeat Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood
Even though I don't usually listen to harder stuff like this I must say that I enjoy this album quite alot. The songs are so catchy that this album could be a good introduction into harder stuff for people that are not into these genres.
Volbeat Beyond Hell/Above Heaven
I used to love this when I was growing up, and it still sounds nice. Interesting mix of genres.
Weyes Blood Front Row Seat to Earth
Certainly a pretty enjoyable album. While many tracks are actually only decent, there are a few that make up for it. An absolute highlight for me is 'Do You Need My Love', a song that I love so much that I would even go as far as saying it's one of the best of all time.
Yes Close to the Edge

3.0 good
Angels and Airwaves I-Empire
I used to love this when I was 15 years old! Now I don't, but it still has some good tunes.
Angels and Airwaves ...Of Nightmares
Angels and Airwaves The Dream Walker Demos
If you are interested in The Dream Walker, these demos will give you an insight on how some tracks came to be and what else could have been on the album. Some of these demos I like even more than the original songs, like for example both Wolfpack demos.
Arcade Fire Everything Now
It's true that this album is a dissapointment compared to the others, but I think there are actually some good songs on here and definetly more enjoyable than bad ones. For examble I definetly like the title track and four last songs of the album. It's nice to see them do the thing again, like on suburbs, where they dedicate the last song to the first/title track so the album gets round up a bit.
Audioslave Out of Exile
Belle and Sebastian Legal Man
Big Thief Two Hands
Decent album, but not as consistent as its predecessors. The emotion is still there, but I find the writing on here flat at times. The highlight of the record would definitely be "Not", for sure one of Big Thief's best songs.
Blink-182 Greatest Hits
Blink-182 Neighborhoods
Some really catchy and great singles here and there. Certainly not a bad album.
Caroline Polachek Pang
Definitely some bangers on here, but not all are for me. Still a decent listen.
Clive Tanaka y Su Orquesta Pre-Sunrise Authority
The album starts off with the stronger half, especially I like 'Popular Lips'. However, track 4,
as well as the last three are significantly weaker than the rest for me and pull the album down.
Without these and a slightly shorter version of first track this would have made a great EP.
Coldplay X&Y
There are so many popular singles on this album, most people probably know 75% of it already. I have mixed feeling about this project. Sometimes it's enjoyable and sometimes not. What I can say for sure is that the album is a bit too long and may feel like a compilation of songs, thus not coherent.
Coldplay Live 2012
Not the best audio recording and setlist, especially because some weaker cuts of Mylo Xyloto made it in, but I found myself singing along quite often. So the energy of the performance is definitely there.
De Lux Generation
I am kinda torn on this group and project. For sure many songs on here are great, generally very catchy and fun. What is bothering me is that the style is basically a Talking Heads rip-off, the singer even sounds almost exactly like David Byrne. Another thing that I do not care much about are the lyrics. The most frequent topic seems to be the claim that the singer (or protargonist of the songs) never tried weed. Using track 06 as a pun I could say "No One really cares" about that.
Fleetwood Mac Rumours
Foxboro Hot Tubs Stop Drop and Roll!!!
Green Day International Superhits
Green Day 21st Century Breakdown
This was definitely one of my favourite things in my youth, and now I kinda get the bad
reputation. This album is not very consistent and way too long. But some part of me still enjoys
many songs on here and even still knows the lyrics. Some highlights for me are now 'Last Night on
Earth' and 'Restless Heart Syndrome'.
Green Day iTRE!
Actually a somewhat decent collection of catchy songs. Stylisticly album is kinda versatile, in a good way.
Happyness Floatr
The features good writing and arrangements, but what is bothering me are the vocals. The singing sounds different than on previous projects, somehow more forced. Still, not a bad listen.
Interpol Our Love to Admire
There are excellent tracks on here, but sadly not in a large quantity. This makes the album rather inconsistent. Highlights for me are definetly "No I in Threesome" and the ending of "Pace is the Trick".
Interpol El Pintor
Kurt Vile Childish Prodigy
I am kinda torn on this album. For sure the psychedelic textures make this an interesting first listen, but when it comes down to revisiting it, I think the songwriting might be lacking a bit. Atleast when I listened to this on repeat it felt more and more boring. But know when I listened to it for the first time in a long time, it feels fresh again.
Lambchop Nixon
This could be an excellent album, but some unfortunate decisions ruin it slightly for me. One of
them is including 'Petrified Florist' into the tracklist, which is by far weaker than any other
track on here. The other is the choice of vocals on some of the songs. On these, Wagner decides to
sing in a high pitch voice with which he clearly struggles with, ultimately not playing to his
strenghts. To me these vocals even sound like a parody at times. It's just unfortunate to hear
such tastefully arranged songs together with these vocals. Luckily he does not do it very often,
which still leaves a handful of well-written and well-performed cuts.
LCD Soundsystem This Is Happening
Hinestly, I don't get the hype fot this album. There are some amazing tracks on here, for example opener "Dance Yrself Clean" and closer "Home" I enjoy very much, but in between i find the tracklisting rather unconsitent. Most of these songs are longer than they should be, and bring nothing new to the table after half of their runtime. In general though I still enjoy this album to some extend.
LCD Soundsystem American Dream
I remember that this album got stale for me pretty quickly after release. Now that I am coming back to it, the first half sound a bit more fresh again, but only slightly. My favourite song on here would probably still be 'Tonight'.
Leonard Cohen Songs of Leonard Cohen
Every song on this album is pleasant to the ear, but only a few stuck out to me as great. In total, I do not understand the classic status.
Protomartyr Under Color of Official Right
Certainly not a bad album. I like catchy lyrics used in many songs, like "Alice in Chains played on repeat", or "the plan today is not to die". Some songs may feel a little bit lifeless, for example I think 'Come and See' gets rather boring after a while and would work better if it were shorter. Still I quite enjoy this record and especially the louder moments on here.
Radiohead Amnesiac
While this album is definitely not without great songs, I feel like its one of their least consistent. Many tracks seem unnecessary to me, for example 'Hunting Bears'. My favourite one here would be the by the majority underappreciated 'Dollars and Cents'.
Radiohead Supercollider/The Butcher
These singles are a small 'Let down', compared to their usual work, but still very enjoyable
Radiohead Pyramid Song
Sharon Van Etten Remind Me Tomorrow
I like many songs of this album alot. Also I think the progression to making more electronic music works pretty godd here. But for every song on this album that I love there is one that just should't have made it on the album, especially some longer cuts don't deserve their runtime and get rather boring.
Shinedown The Sound of Madness
Slowdive Souvlaki
I am not too crazy about this one. Sonically it does sound great most of the time, but to me the songwriting falls a bit flat. As a consequence, this album is kinda sleep inducing to me. It can still be a pretty enjoyable listen, though.
Tennis Yours Conditionally
It's definitely sweet on the ears, but after many songs on here impress less with repeated listens. Still a decent project. Tennis doing what they do best.
The National I Am Easy to Find
On this album the National are yet again trying somethng new, which I always appreciate. The new direction features extensive arrangements with lots of vocals, especially vocals by women. This actually works quite well. The biggest problem that I have with this album is that it doesn't have many strong songs, and that's why it doesn't live up to previous albums. Of yourse I like a couple of songs very much, for example "Quiet Light" is amazing, and the title track too because of the "ticker tape" line. But many songs just don't seem exciting after many listens, expecially on the second half of the record. When it comes to the lyrics, I think that these don't stand out like in other National albums, either. I have to point out that I enjoyed the album surprisingly much after going back to it after a long break, which is nice.r
The New Regime Coup
The New Regime Speak Through the White Noise
Very ambitious solo project. I enjoy many songs on here, with probably 'Radiate the False' as my favourite. In generality I would not say the album is too consistent, though. Another thing that definitely bothers me are the lyrics. I do not get any emotion out of them, and also the topics do not connect with me. Many times they even seem hateful, like on 'Enjoy the Bitterness'. Still I would say this an album worth checking out.
The New Regime Exhibit A
Thirty Seconds to Mars This Is War
I used to like this album alot in my teenage years. Going back to it, it still has some value for me, but falls off near the end.
Thom Yorke Tomorrow's Modern Boxes
In general not a bad album, but it starts off on a bad note for me since I think the first three songs are lacking in quality. Luckily from there it keeps up a better pace and is almost consistent, with the last track being my favourite. One thing I want to mention is that on 'There Is No Ice' I undertand the vocals saying the german phrase "Hör ich den Rest" over and over again. Can someone confirm this or am I the only one hearing it?
Viagra Boys Street Worms
Volbeat The Strength/The Sound/The Songs
Volbeat Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies
Zach McCoy Poor Fools
Not bad for an independent debut, some of these songs are really good!

2.5 average
Angels and Airwaves We Don't Need to Whisper
Angels and Airwaves Stomping The Phantom Brake Pedal
The opener track "Diary" is awesome. I have problems with the second part of this Ep though, namely I don't care about the remixes at all. Without "LOVE Two Re-Imagined EP" my rating would have been alot more positive.
Angels and Airwaves The Dream Walker
Although I was a heavy Angels and Airwaves fan some time ago, this album never appealed to me like their previous stuff. Expecially now I don't get much enjoyment out of this album because it's extremly overproduced. Some songs I still like, like Tunnels or the Wolfpack.
Bjork Post
This is for sure an unpopualar opinion, but I see this as some of Bjorks weakest und least rconsistent material. Don't get me wrong, there are many gems on Post, but for each one we also get rsomething underwhelming. For example tracks like 'I Miss You' and 'Cover Me' mean nothing to me. rAdditionally the album suffers from the weird choice to have Jazz balads next to Trip Hop bangers, rwhich does not mix well in my opinion. In the end, I am also not really a fan of this industrial rsound of some of these songs. But let's not forget the highlights of the album, that would be r'Isobel' and 'Hyper-ballad' for me.
Coldplay Mylo Xyloto
Most songs on this album dissapoint, but still there are some gems on here. "Hurts Like Heaven" is an amazing pop song, another ones I like are "U.F.O." and the closer "Up with the birds".
Coldplay A Head Full of Dreams
Deer Park Ranger Moderation
Green Day ¡UNO!
Interpol Interpol
This album has some moments of creativity, but mostly does not satisfy. You still gotta give Interpol credit for trying to change up their sound, though, and on some tracks here it works well, like for example on Summer Well. What also stands out in many tracks here are the experimental drumming rhythms. Still, the album is one of their weakest.
Interpol Marauder
Definitely some decent songs on here, but the horrible production quality makes this album a rather unpleasent listen. I don't care if it's "Straight To Tape" when the vocals and drums sound that muddy.
Laetitia Sadier The Trip
There are some decent tracks on here, but in general I find this album too unconsistent to be enjoyable front to back.
LCD Soundsystem LCD Soundsystem
Sadly most tracks here don't resonate with me, even after lots of listens. There are some epic cuts here though, like for example closing track Yr City's a Sucker.
Life Without Buildings Any Other City
This album sounds fun at first, but after a few listens grows stale for me. The songs seem way too long, with the vocals and instruments not offering enough variety to justify the runtime. In particular the spoken vocals can be very annoying after some listens, and the heavy use of repetition does not help with this issue at all.
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
Linkin Park Living Things
Melody's Echo Chamber Melody's Echo Chamber
The textures an production on this album are for sure interesting, but in my opinion it just lacks decent songwriting. With this you just grow tired of the songs after a while.
My Chemical Romance Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
PJ Harvey Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea
In my opinion this album is rather underwhelming. Especially the cuts featuring heavy guitars have not aged well. Even 'This Mess We're In' with Thom Yorke on vocals I do not enjoy; I find his singing rather annoying on here, specifically on the third verse, where Harvey just speaks over Thom with the same lyrics. In total, there are some decent songs on this project, but for me they form a minority.
Prima Donna After Hours
Radiohead Pablo Honey
This debut isn't actiually that bad, especially if you don't compare it to it's followups. I like how, while being grungy, it also has songs that got that "self-pity"-vibe, wich later gats improved on The Bends. I mean tracks that have these whiny sounding vocals like in Stop Whispering. Also I love Lurgee!
Sasami Sasami
I adore the album closer. Apart from that and a few catchy motives, there is not much noteworthy on here. I like Sasami's style and personality though, and a live set that I witnessed was very fun.
Shinedown Leave a Whisper
Shuggie Otis Inspiration Information
Sigur Ros ( )
There are definitely some great tracks on here, but the half hour that makes up Untitled 5 to 7 just puts me to sleep.
The Antlers Burst Apart
There are some gems on here, but most tracks offer too little to justify their runtime. In the end it sums up to a rather boring experience.
The Cities we Light Man Down
The Dismemberment Plan Change
This album cought my interest because of the great opener 'Sentimental Man', which has some unique
sound to it. And while most other songs of the album feature more or less the same interesting
style, they are not as strong in my opinion. After a few listens I got tired of the album, it just
sounded less and less special to me. I think this is because it features so many Pop Punk
elements, and the singing is not that impressive. In the end I still enjoy some songs on here, but
most of them I do not.
The National Cherry Tree
The New Regime Exhibit B
Some of the tracks I like, for example "The Longing", as well as the last two, but in general this Ep does not impress me. The vocals especially don't convince, and I don't like the lyrical themes.
Tom Delonge To The Stars... Demos, Odds, and Ends
Two Door Cinema Club Beacon
When I was younger I enjoyed this record quite a bit. Now I find most of the tracks too overblown, that's why I prefer the more calm ones. These, like the title track or Spring, I still like quite much.
U2 The Joshua Tree
For me this album feels massively overrated. There are of course some good songs on here, like
number 2 and 3, but apart from those, I am hardly getting any enjoyment from this record. Already
the opening track reveals that the albums production sounds muddy due to the guitar dealy effect
which is used pretty often. Not only is Bonos voice is often mixed to loud, he also tries way too
hard to sound emotional.
U2 Songs of Innocence
Not much great material on here, especially in the second half of the record. However, I would not write it completely off since I still enjoy some few songs of innocence, for example "Iris (Hold Me Close)".
Ulrika Spacek The Album Paranoia
This album sounds interesting at first listens, but falls short after a few more. Most tracks don't offer much creativity, with "Ultra Vivid" and "There's a Little Passing Cloud in You" as exceptions.
Wand Laughing Matter
The great singles released prior to album drop made me pretty excited for this project. In first listens it felt like a solid album, but after listening to it over and over again many songs began to sound more and more stale to me. For example I think that "Jennifer's Gone" is one of the worst closer songs. "Laughing Matter" definetly has some heights, but as a whole it feels underwhelming and too long.
Youth Lagoon The Year of Hibernation
It's a fun little album with some nice songs, 17 for example. But in my opinion it does not work good as an album because it lacks diversity. The specific style of the sound and the similar song structure of each song feels annoying when coming to the end of the record.

2.0 poor
Angels and Airwaves We Don't Need to Whisper Acoustic EP
For an acoustic, this sound terribly unorganic to me. I think that an acoustic performance should be enough stripped back to reveal the core and emotion of a song. The instrumentals on this EP do not satidfy this at all, and neither do the vocals. These just do not sound raw enough to convey any emotion.
Dean Blunt Black Metal
There is a handful of good short tracks on this album, but as an entire listening experience I do not recomment this. It feels more liek a collection of demos than a cohesive project. Especially off putting are the two long tracks in the middle of the album.
Deerhunter Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?
When this album came out I was very dissapointed. There is only 2 to 3 decent songs on here, and one of them is 'What Happens to People?'
Green Day iDOS!
All in all a pretty dissapointing album. Some songs I like, but most are just too weak.
I/O (US) Saudade
This is the first Post Rock album that I tried out. I am not sure if I have a problem with Post
Rock in generall or not, if I do, this rating would not be justified. At the first few listens I
really enjoyed this record, it seemed really simple yet epic. But at some point my opinion about
the album started to worsen. The catchy motives began to become more boring with every listen. Now
I find this album really plane and thin. Most songs seem to be way too long for what they offer.
Maybe I am too used to having vocals, but then I wouldn't have enjoyed the album in the first
place, right?
Favourite songs on the album: Input/Output, Weather Fields
King Krule 6 Feet Beneath the Moon
In the first listens this album feels exciting, but after a while it is just boring.
The Cure Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
I don't care for the majority of the tracks on this album and find the vocals extremely annoying. Of course "Just Like Heaven" is a great song, but it doesn't save the album.
The Motels Motels
White Lies Ritual
Dissapointing followup to the great debut. The songs feel like they want to sound interesting but they fail because of lackluster songwriting and over the top production. Some songs though, like 'The Power & the Glory' I like quite much.
Zach McCoy mouth breathers
In my opinion this album has alot of potential, that sadly doesn't get unleashed. The reason behind that is poor execution and production. A good example for this is the song phobias. I think, looking at the songwriting, it's a great tune, but the overblown instrumentation doesn't let that get through. Often the vocals are way too quiet and the instrumentation too loud in the mix. Overall the mixing is so inconsistent, it's hard to listen to the album without at least once changing the volume. Still I have to give Zach credit for trying to experiment a bit and not going the easy way of staying by his roots.

1.5 very poor
Angels and Airwaves Lifeforms
Ten years ago this was my favourite band. Still I wasn't expecting much of this release, as those times are long over, but yet it managed to dissapoint. The mix sounds consistently awful, basically every chorus is a complete mess sonically. The first 50 seconds of the record would actually fit on Corey Feldman's Angelic 2 the Core. Tom's vocals also aren't great, and so is the songwriting on most tracks. For me, one of the wort albums of the year.
Enrique Iglesias Insomniac
This is the first album I bought on CD. Now it just feels blend, although some songs I actually like a little.
EOB Earth
As much as I enjoy the work of Radiohead, this debut album by Ed doesn't speak to me at all. I my opinion there is not one exciting song on here. This is due to weak songwriting and uninteresting instrumentation. Take "Deep days" as an example: the hook on this song is just forgetable and feels even more boring due to the long runtime. My favourite track on here would probaply be "Olympik", which I find almost decent.
Zach McCoy 8 BIT SOUL
There are some few good ideas here, but most songs are very annoying. Also the album sounds bad from a production standpoint.

1.0 awful
Jai Paul Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones)
This music does nothing for me. People say it's sounds amazing despite only being demos, but in my ears, this just sounds like a mess. Either there is an issue with the volume changing frequently throughout the songs, or it's a weird asthetic choice. The songwriting for me also does not seem great, so I can't even imagine to like these tracks with different production.
