Double Review: ‘Immutable’ by Meshuggah and ‘Parrhesia’ by Animals As Leaders

Immutable and Parrhesia both succeed in being face-meltingly heavy and impressively complex metal albums - even if they are both utterly exhausting to listen to.

Review of 'Melt My Eyez See Your Future' by Denzel Curry

Denzel is sounding less aggressive and more introspective here. And he’s jumping on some of the most stylistically diverse beats of his career. It’s an exhilarating album – but is it better than his 2018 masterpiece TA1300?

Review of 'Dawn FM' by The Weeknd

Dawn FM is a gauntlet of synthpop bangers that takes the form of a purgatory-based radio station. It’s The Weeknd’s most energetic and conceptual album to date – and possibly his best.

My Top 20 Favourite Albums of 2021

Here it is! My favourite albums of 2021 (fashionably late as always). This was such a hard list to narrow down. The amount of stellar albums that dropped last year is insane (and I feel like I still haven’t listened to half the records from the year that I wanted to). If you like lists don’t forget to check out my favourite tracks of 2021 and my least favourite tracks of 2021 too.
