Album Review: Charli XCX – Pop 2

December 23, 2017 | 0 Comments

Pop 2 is the second mixtape that Charli XCX has released this year, too much if you ask me. And “too much” are the two words that I would use to describe the record, there is too much of everything: distorted and modified vocals, jumps from one rhythm to another, and collaborations, thirteen in a...

Album Review: Eminem – Revival

December 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

Two decades ago, when he first rose to prominence with The Slim Shady LP, rapper Eminem – aka Marshall Mathers III – attracted as much attention for his darkly comic characters and personas as for his skills at twisting and spitting rhymes at lightning speed.

December 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

Miguel, in his fourth studio album War & Leisure, is able to mix together varied themes, as politics, human rights, freedom, pleasure, sex and love, while never losing consistency or failing to portrait his personality.
