However, he was able to recruit several other members to help him with recording and instrumentation. Foo Fighters had huge success in the 90s, but kind of lost some drive in the 00s and 2010s. With an expansive career, Foo Fighters drop their tenth studio album, Medicine At Midnight .   The first track from the album is Making A Fire . First thing I notice from the track is the electrifying guitar riffs and the chorus of people singing 'na na'. While the Foo Fighters have been around for

You probably don't need a reintroduction if you have seen my previous review, but EP2! marks the highly anticipated follow up of his first EP back in December. Just like the first EP, EP2! is a collection of several different singles that he has released in the last few months. The first track from the EP is LAST DANCE! Compared to his first EP, which came out in late 2020 (check out the review here ), this track is toned down a lot more. You have some light ringing noises in the

Ever since the release of their self-titled debut, they have maintained that popularity and continued to grow. While I think their 2012 days are over, it's nice to see them evolve and see how their sound has changed over the past ten years. Glowing in the Dark marks Django Django's fourth studio album. The first track from their new album is Spirals , which marks their longest track on the album, clocking in at five minutes. It's a bit of an interesting start to their album, but they always have some grand way to start the albu

Now, nearly two years later, he returns for his sophomore release titled TYRON . The first track from the first half is 45 SMOKE . The beat opens up with some distorted and bell-like instruments. Besides that, the beat is a bit underwhelming to start the track off. However, the beat changes about halfway through to something more desirable and laid back. The second half beat definite

However, I put 'new' in quotes since there are some rumors going around. Since it seems like Doctor Destruction is cloaking his voice and is wearing a mask, people are assuming Logic has returned to the rap game under a new name. Besides the speculation, Planetory Destruction marks Doctor Destruction's debut studio album. The first track from the album is Intro . Pretty simple track name for the opening of an album, but there's a lot to admire about this track. You

Now, five years later, Zayn has come out with his third studio album, Nobody Is Listening .   The first track from the album is Calamity . With a track name like Calamity , I would have expected this to be a little more loud and crazy, however, we just have a descending bass line for most of the track.
