In 2017 he dropped his latest album, “Revival,” which was a compilation of confusing rhyme schemes that lacked flow and had an overly aggressive tone. The hooks cons...

I feel like not too many have heard the 'new' album by Two Door Cinema Club, entitled Gameshow, that came out in October 2016. I can see on Spotify that their most successful song from the album has only garnered up to 16 million listens, which is quite minuscule when compared to the band's most p...

On March 29th, 2017, rapper Logic announced via Twitter that he would be releasing a new album entitled "Everybody," on May 5th. The album was highly anticipated by listeners. Before I start off, the Logic fanbase is probably the most defensive group you'll ever meet, keep that in mind when reading...

A sore throat and half deaf. These are the two signs of a good concert; Guns N’ Roses delivered this and more at their show at NRG Stadium. Even though the doors were supposed to open at 6:30 pm, they did not actually open until around 7:00 pm, which irritated many fans, but gave me a chance to tak...
