Album reviews 5/30/19

The Prodigy- No Tourists: Ah, the last Prodigy album before their lead singer died. šŸ˜¦ Oddly, he doesn’t appear much. This is mostly samples over hard techno beats, which I’m not suggesting is a bad thing, but definitely not what … Continue reading

Jess Glynne- Always in Between: This is her sophomore album, but I know her as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s song “Rather Be”. If you like that song, it will absolutely prime you for this release. She totally kills this … Continue reading

Kamen Rider Heisei Generations Forever

I dunno if that was the best Kamen Rider movie I’ve ever seen — Accel is probably still my favorite — but it was certainly the best crossover movie, far and away. Unsatisfied with alternate dimensions and time travel, Kamen … Continue reading

Sweet and Smoky

The really great thing aboutĀ Frenemies, as many have pointed out, is that it’s a real departure from regular episodes. No mane six, no Starlight, no CMCs: nothing but villains. It’s unprecedented. And it gives me some slight hope, that after … Continue reading

Andy Black- The Ghost of Ohio: This is a solo project by the lead singer of Black Veil Brides, aka Andy Biersack. Interestingly, it’s meant to accompany a graphic novel of the same name. Again, this is not just another … Continue reading

Carly Rae Jepsen- Dedicated: I listened to this on Google Play, meaning I heard maybe 30% of the run time. Normally I wouldn’t do this with something I’d be reviewing, but Noisetrade changed hands recently and I’m trying to figure … Continue reading

Paul Simon- In the Blue Light: Paul Simon’s last album was so excellent, I definitely let my hopes get a little high for this one. And, predictably, they were dashed. This isn’t a bad album, no sir, but it’s also … Continue reading

Troye Sivan- Bloom: This is a very solid electro-pop album, the kind I have to go back through after I’m finished with it to find which songs I most liked, because it’s just so easy to get lost in enjoying … Continue reading

Chromeo- Head Over Heels: What can I say? This is a finger-snapping, toe-tapping, funky good time. If you’re still feeling the weight of that Michael Jackson- or Prince-shaped hole in your music life, you should be listening to Chromeo, because … Continue reading
