Review of 'Cuz I Love You' by Lizzo




Lizzo’s new pop album is more infectious than malaria.

BEST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 23/08/2019: The 1975, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and more...



Miley Cyrus and The 1975 have both released new songs. And neither of them are terrible. In fact, they’re both quite good. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE???

By the way, there are no ‘worst’ tracks this week.

Review of 'Father of Asahd' by DJ Khaled




The new DJ Khaled album is like listening to a NOW CD, but without any of the hits.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 28/06/2019: Blink-182, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, FEVRMOON and more…




Hot new tunes in time for the heatwave. Is it really going to reach 45 degrees next week? I'm getting sunburn just thinking about it...

Review of 'Hyperion' by Gesaffelstein

This album really is dark...


Aleph was action-packed. Hyperion is oddly uneventful.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 12/04/2019: Men I Trust, Omar Addis, Schoolboy Q and more...



This week I decided to travel the cosmos (if you look closely enough at that picture of the black hole released this week, you can just about see me in my spaceship), and having scoured every galaxy I can confirm that Music Related Junk is still the greatest music blog in the universe. Don’t believe me? Then you're clearly an idiot.

Review of 'Harverd Dropout' by Lil Pump


Despite evidently not being able to spell (or rap for that matter), Lil Pump is a self-made millionaire at 18 - and he’s decided to spend his new album telling everyone that school is for losers.

Review of 'thank u, next' by Ariana Grande




This is the second Ariana Grande album that I’ve genuinely enjoyed. What’s happening to me??? HELP ME!!!

Albums I Never Got Round To Reviewing In 2018: Travis Scott, KIDS SEE GHOSTS, Greta Van Fleet and more...

I wasn't blogging as incessantly in 2018, but I still found time to listen to a lot of albums, some of which I wish I'd reviewed. I thought I'd take this opportunity to gloss over some of those albums.

Astroworld – Travis Scott


Travis Scott’s auto-tuned drivel doesn’t really do much for me, although I must say this is the most sophisticated auto-tuned drivel I’ve heard. The glitzy production and the star-studded array of guests shows that Travis is definitely a good orchestrater – few hip hop artists can rope together Stevie Wonder, James Blake and Kid Cudi all onto a single album, let alone a single track. The whole album feels like one big party – I just don’t care for the man at the centre of it.

My Top 20 Favourite Albums of 2018

Having already delved into my favourite and least favourite singles, it's now time for my belated top 20 favourite albums of 2018. Feel free to let me know your favourite albums of the year - there was so much music being released in 2018 that I could barely keep up with it all, so I've probably missed out on a few hidden gems.

As always, don't forget to check out my previous year end lists from 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012!

20 - 11

20. Errorzone – Vein

Boston metal/hardcore band Vein let loose a non-stop assault of explosive riffage and wild percussion. If you like your music loud, heavy and unrelenting, this is certain to hit your sweet spot.
