Album Review: “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” [2021]

Taylor Swift has begun re-recording and re-releasing her original albums. Why? Well, a quick google search can explain the whole story, but basically -- she lost ownership of her previous work, and this is how she is taking her power back. Skipping over her first self-titled album "Taylor Swift," she started out with the absolutely [...]

Imagine Dragons released "Smoke + Mirrors" in February 2015, their second studio album, followed by their first and highly successful "Night Visions" that included "Radioactive" and "Demons."

Album Review: “After School” by Melanie Martinez

Album Review: “After School” by Melanie Martinez

Melanie Martinez released a new album titled "After School" in late September. The seven-track EP is a sequel to her epic visual album "K-12." Melanie Martinez is a very unique artist and her music plays out a specific storyline. She is very pastel goth and creepy-cute. Her music is a mix between bubblegum pop and [...]

Taylor Swift releases "evermore" -- a sequel to "folklore" This past summer, Taylor Swift surprised us with "folklore," an alternative album with themes of cottage-core, softness, and melancholiness. Each track was a mythical tale, full of both magic and tragedy. It was rainy-day-with-a-hot-cup-of-tea vibes, and became my new favorite TS album ever. Little did I [...]

Album Review: “The Shadow’s Bride” by Peter Gundry

Album Review: “The Shadow’s Bride” by Peter Gundry

I recently discovered Peter Gundry, a talented composer who's music is completely unlike others. His work is mainly instrumental with limited vocals, mixing classical with fantasy and new age. He has many albums, some darker than others, all containing an aura of mystifying enchantment. "The Shadow's Bride" sends you through a portal into an entirely [...]

Album Review ~ “folklore” by Taylor Swift

Album Review ~ “folklore” by Taylor Swift

Last Friday, Taylor Swift dropped a surprise album titled "folklore." Just as surprising, is the new direction she took with her music. The record has a cottage-core aesthetic: presenting themes of simplicity, nostalgia, melancholiness, and mythology. Each song comes with a story that carries universal messages we can all relate to in different ways, and [...]
