Gorillaz – “Self-Titled” (2001) Album Review & Analysis (Track By Track)

Kurt Cobain – Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings (Album Review)

“Montage of Heck is a hard pill to swallow. It’s not something you just sit down and casually indulge yourself in. Most of these songs are not even fully fledged demos. They don’t have any structure and are not meant for convincing anyone to pump money into clean-sounding studio recordings. This is one man sitting on his couch in his suburban living room, strumming a mostly unplugged guitar and sporadically creating sound collages, skits, and instrumental passages while the TV is buzzing quietly in the background.” – Mathias Folsted.

The Wonder Years – “No Closer to Heaven” (2015) Album Review

“From hardcore and fast to slow and tender, “No Closer to Heaven” unfolds like ripples in water, stretching and bending the shape of punk to a whole new degree of raw, unflinching, emotional honesty; something far more intricate, wide-ranging and complex than anything the golden age of pop punk ever had to offer.

Weezer – “Everything Will Be Alright In The End” (2014) Album Review

“At its core, ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ is quintessential Weezer, packing tight hooks and delivering self-confessional lyrics. But there is something profound about the writing this time, perhaps because the band members are wiser and more experienced than they were 20 years ago.” – Mathias Folsted.
