Review of 'Uknowwhatimsayin¿' by Danny Brown




Danny Brown is sounding cleaner and meaner.

Review of ‘JESUS IS KING’ by Kanye West




I miss the old Kanye. Straight from the go Kanye. The less happy-clappy, more lyrical rappy Kanye. The Kanye that didn’t have a hard-on for Trump. The Kanye that didn’t try to sell me his pumps.

Review of 'All My Heroes Are Cornballs' by JPEGMAFIA




Have I got two tabs of music playing? Has my computer crashed? No, it’s just the new JPEGMAFIA album playing.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 04/10/2019: The Hu, Clipping, Pitbull and more…



There’s all manner of crazy shit going on this week. There’s Mongolian rock with throat singing. There’s Pitbull rapping over a house remix of ‘Black Betty’. It's absolute mayhem.

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.

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.
