enjoy's 2024 log (25 out of 100, Sinceramente tua)
21) Nina Kinert - Romantic:
Vocally reminded me of Susanne Sundfor, musically feels like catchier Julia Holter, Romantic hits what it sets out for: An aural equivalent of "Ophelia Out of the Pond"
❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎1/2
22) The Smile - Wall of Eyes: The new record from Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood's side project The Smile feels like a mixture of the usual Radiohead sound from the beginning of their career and where they headed next next. And this is a great compliment for my standards. Quite possibly the best record from Radiohead members that is not under the name of Radiohead ❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎
23) Akini Jing - Villain: Chinese musicians Akini Jing's new record is bold,eclectic and quite touching at times. The videos for this project are quite the visual feast as well. However the ballads dont hit and it is a bit of a shame that this record is so short. In any case, go watch Call Me Shadow if you feel your Kill Bill jush. ❤︎❤︎❤︎1/2
24) Allie X - Girl With No Face: Her greatest album and quite possibly will be my favorite album this year. She completely takes her sound (which was becoming a bit homogenous to be frank) to whole new level. The second half of the album (Black Eye onwards) is one masterpiece after the other ❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎
25) Chelsea Wolfe - She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She: Coming after Birth of Violence and several side projects, this was one of the albums that i looked forward the most and it did not disappoint. Granted it won't be my favorite album from her (Hiss Spun and Pain is Beauty are hard to dethrone for me) but i'm very much here for her constantly pushing her sound to new places while keeping her atmosphere familiar. ❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎1/2

Between the last 4 albums here and Kali Uchis and Nailah Hunter's new albums, this is shaping up to be a great year.
 
It's been over a month since I last posted on here, so here we go:


#40 Zara Larsson - Venus : The first half is almost bulletproof but it's the 3 back to back ballads that ruin the album for me. Venus is one of the best songs that she's ever done and tries to pick up the pace, but it's a bit too late.


#41 Shygirl - Club Shy : What a stacked bop collection. I've had Mr useless on regular rotation since the release.


#42 Ariana Grande - Eternal Sunshine : Album of the year already and I still think the album has more room to grow on me.


#43 Allie X - Girl with No Face : There were a few tracks that I really liked on my first listen : The title track, Off With Her Tits and Black Eye are all great.


#44 Jennifer Lopez - This Is Me...Nooooooow : I quickly dismissed this album at first but sitting through it properly, I think Jenny did a great job for her standards. Nothing groundbreaking but she had a proper A&R around her this time.


#45 LE SSERAFIM- Easy : I liked their previous singles so had a bit high expectations going into this but it's a bit safe and forgettable.
 
#1: Tate McRae - THINK LATER ★★★☆
#2:
Various Queens - The Color Purple ★★★★★
#3:
Belén Aguilera - METANOIA ★★☆
#4:
Tracy Chapman - Montreux 1988 ★★★★★
#5: Usher - Coming Home ★★★☆
#6:
Jennifer Lopez - This Is Me... Now ★★
#7: Jason Derulo - Nu King ★★★
I do not know who is here for a 27-track album from mister Jason Derülo fresh of Usher's post-SuperBowl Coming Home, but as expected there are great bops. The fact it is also made sure some fire singles are no longer orphaned is a concept. Even Swalla made the list, but for some reason Savage Love is still an orphan single... More than half is not something I run back to, but there was definitely a strong normal-length album to be made.

#8: Greenday - Saviours ★
Time for my first real rock album of the year and it is better than their previous albums, it still is not sweeping me. There is not one track I feel like wanting to return.

#9: Ariana Grande - Eternal Sunshine ★★★★
Her best album. It is so dreamy and well thought out. Many moments make me contemplate and emotional. She really brewed something very special. For someone I wouldn't say stanned hard before, there is a definitely a change now in my love for her artistry. The album wants make me want to go back to her earlier catalague, but at the same time make me spin it again and again.

I don't feel like posting every five albums anymore. Plus, I was revisiting some of the old threads and I miss writing mini reviews.

[6/50] Happiness Begins - Jonas Brothers (2019)
Favourite Tracks:
Sucker, Don't Throw It Away
I was doing research for the concert as I'm a childhood Jonas stan and haven't kept up with recent work. Sadly, this album ended up as I expected it to. It was pretty generic and faceless, which genuinely aren't words I would usually use to describe what these guys put out. The album sounds very of it's time and while 'Sucker' remains a bop and 'Don't Throw It Away' is honestly quite great, I don't think I'll be revisiting this as a body of work.

[7/50] The Album - Jonas Brothers (2023)
Favourite Tracks:
Miracle, Montana Sky, Sail Away, Waffle House, Vacation Eyes, Little Bird
Skips: Walls
Last year I absolutely adored the campiness of 'Waffle House', the song never fails to both make me laugh and make me smile. I didn't listen to the album that followed though and listening before the concert gave me a really pleasant surprise. I kinda love this??? The production on songs like 'Miracle' is really cool. I love the breeziness of 'Montana Sky' (which might be my favourite track), 'Little Bird' is a genuinely heartwarming track dedicated to their daughters. Some aspects got a little repetitive (it's cohesive but maybe there were too many beach-y songs) and some of the lyrics in 'Summer in the Hamptons' were a no from me but overall, I really vibed.

[8/50] With YOU-th - TWICE (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
I GOT U, RUSH, NEW NEW, BLOOM
Is it bad to admit that I've felt a bit disconnected from TWICE releases recently? There was nothing wrong with the last couple of mini albums and they had some tracks I loved but I still felt this seperation that I didn't like considering TWICE is one of my favourite groups in Kpop. I'm thankful to say that while 'One Spark' isn't a top title track for me, With YOU-th as a whole sparks joy! 'I GOT U' is maybe the best TWICE track in years, 'RUSH' and 'BLOOM' are such gorgeous vibes. My favourite is 'NEW NEW' because of course it is. I love myself a bright, slightly cute leaning moment. Also, a dorky shout out to the physical album which comes with photocards of the girlies in bear hats if you're lucky!

[9/50] eternal sunshine - Ariana Grande (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
bye, don't wanna break up again, eternal sunshine, supernatural, the boy is mine, we can't be friends, imperfect for you
Skips: yes, and?
Oh. My. God????? The way I had the lowest of low expectations after 'yes, and?' and she actually came through! I'm speechless. positions was good but honestly felt a little undercooked in places and never really connected with me, which was sad. I have been such a huge Ariana fan since I was a teenager, I don't like not liking her music. Thankfully, that is not the case with this album. I love it! It's absolutely stunning. The production is unmatched, maybe the best of her career. And god, has she ever sounded better than this? I love how cohesive the album feels, while never getting stale. The harmonies are absolutely insane and I feel like I just get transported to another plane with every listen. Every now and again there is a lyric that doesn't hit my ear right, and 'yes, and?' never grew on me but I will take the wins. I love this album.

She/they
January 2024:
I did impromptu TWICE and (G)-IDLE discography dives in January to prep for their Q1 2024 releases. I've come to the conclusion that TWICE peaked for me during their shift from cute to mature in 2019 but Taste of Love is their best release so far. Also, when (G)-IDLE gets it right, they get it right and I burn is still their best release.

Also, only made it to Emiliana Torrini's record and it was exactly what I needed! Icy trip-hop for late winter nights. My favorites were Baby Blue, Easy and Telepathy. Best album I've heard so far this year!

[10/50] Positive Spin - Gretta Ray (2023)
Favourite Tracks:
Positive Spin, Upgraded, Heartbreak Baby, Dear Seventeen, You've Already Won, Light On
I've wanted to check Gretta out for quite awhile now, since she runs in the same circles as my favourite girls Maisie Peters & Cate. Miss Maisie even features on one of the tracks. I was happy to find that this was exactly the kind of pop singer-songwriter vibe I was looking for. Diary entry lyrics with catchy melodies and poppy production. I don't think there's a single song here that misses for me. Absolutely my taste.

[11/50] Deeper Well - Kacey Musgraves (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
Deeper Well, The Architect
I'm not going to say much, because I know my opinion is unpopular. I was a pre-Golden Hour stan and the kind of music she has made from then on (with the exception of a few Golden Hour tracks) hasn't been what I look to Kacey for. I'm happy for all those who love it (which is the majority, I know) but it's not for me, sadly.

[12/50] Give Me A Minute - Lizzy McAlpine (2020)
Favourite Tracks:
Nothing / Sad N Stuff, Over the Ocean Call (Andrew), I Knew, Means Something, Pancakes for Dinner
After loving five seconds flat when I heard it last year, I decided it was finally time to dive into her debut. While I don't love it as much as I loved her sophmore album, there's a lot to like here. Obviously it's a different vibe, a lot more folky and minimal in comparison to the detailed production of five seconds flat, but her songwriting and vocals still really stand out and I find myself coming back to the above songs, especially 'I Knew' and 'Pancakes for Dinner'. It's such a pretty album.

[13/50] BXX - Purple Kiss (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
BBB, BITTER SWEET, Heart Attack
Purple Kiss almost never miss and this time is no different. BBB is such a fun title track with so much personality. I know some people want them to stick to their darker concepts but I love that they are versatile. Their recent run of 'Sweet Juice' to '7HEAVEN' to this has been a really fun variety. The girls seem like they're having so much fun. All the b-sides are great too from the really fun instrumental in 'BITTER SWEET' to the really chill, vibe-y 'Heart Attack'. I also love that Swan participated in the lyrics of the title track.

[14/50] SUPER REAL ME - ILLIT (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
Magnetic, Midnight Fiction, Lucky Girl Syndrome
Um, what a debut???? I didn't follow the competition show they came out of so I had no pre concieved notions about the group at all. I was completely blindsided by the complete slay that is 'Magnetic'. It's addictive. That chorus bounces around in my head literally daily. The rest of the album is really good too. I love the harmonies and vocal layering on 'Midnight Fiction' and 'Lucky Girl Syndrome' is just so sweet and fun, completely to my tastes. I'm so impressed. 'My World' is only a slight miss because it feels undercooked a little but overall, I'm floored and can't wait to see what they do next.

[15/50] Older - Lizzy McAlpine (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
Come Down Soon, All Falls Down, I Guess, Drunk Running, Older
I'm going to be honest and say that this was a bit of a disappointment for me. I'm enjoyng it more on relisten but quite a few of the tracks do have a tendency to blend together. It's lovely overall and really has it's moments but I don't think it's balanced very well. I get what she was going for but it doesn't quite deliver in the way I want it to. 'I Guess' is my favourite, probably followed by 'Drunk, Running'. I want the album to reveal itself more to me in the future.

[16/50] Found Heaven - Conan Gray (2024)
Favourite Tracks:
Found Heaven, Fainted Love, Alley Rose, Boys & Girls, Killing Me, Winner
I'm writing this after only one listen but he really did kill it. I personally prefer Superache a little more, but this album is a sucker punch to the gut and the senses. I felt my heart racing the whole time. He sounds really good with this classic 80s sound. I really enjoyed hearing a lot of his lower register because I feel it's something he hasn't explored enough in the past and it sounds great. I'm looking forward to relistening.
 
I have lots of new albums in my log that i should listen but life is quite hectic in work wise so yeah dd.

Let me manifest that i will hit you all with my thoughts on these albums when i sit down and listen...

Jenni Vartiainen - Terra - Platinapainıs
Clara Luciani - Coeur
Marjan Farsad - Blue Flowers
Parcels - Parcels
Jurga - Breaking the Line
Kate Boy - One
Dolores - Sta te radi

I have listened a bunch of new records that i want to listen one more time before scoring

Ariana Grande - Eternal Sunshine
Lupina - Ringluo
Marina Satti - Yenna
Norah Jones - Visions
Mon Laferte - Autopoietica
The Last Dinner Party - Prelude to Ecstasy


I'm already tired!

he/they
You know what? I did it again!

"Love in The Time of Science" by Emilíana Torrini
Trip-Hop, 1999
- Dead Things
- Easy
- Sea People

I have a tendency to like these kind of sorf-of-ambient records but somehow I had a hard time getting into this body of work. First three tracks give a cold, icy welcome to the listener and I think it sets a wrong tone for the entire album. Rest of it is more warm and easy to listen. Starting with Dead Things, the album gives its essential Icelandic scent to our ears, similar to Björk's albums from 90's. Sea People is the prequel of Harm of Will, if you ask me.




"METANOIA" by Belén Aguilera
Electronic Pop, 2023
- GALGO
- NADIE ME HA PREGUNTADO
- ILUSIÓN ÓPTICA

I know Belén from VÉRTIGO (like almost everyone else) but never gave her albums a listen. While it's short by any means, METANOIA is offering a short & sweet ride through its electronic pop soundscape.




"Gölgelerine" by Tuğçe Şenoğul
Electronic Indie, 2017
- Kaçıyorum Bak
- Onun Karanlık Huyları
- Derbeder Dünya

I heard some of Tuğçe's songs back in days but listening the album as a whole is a different story. While understanding her underwhelmingly painful lyrics helps, even the music production alone (and its wide variety of sounds) tells about us and our shadows that we terrified about.




"Jubilee" by Japanese Breakfast
Dream & Chamber Pop, 2017
- Paprika
- Kokomo, IN
- Tactics

Thanks to @enjoy: According to Michelle Zauner, this record is about joy... And that's what a joy feels like! From the start to finish, it's a delicate, lukewarm journey to witness.




"& The Charm" by Avalon Emerson
Electronic & Dream Pop, 2023
- Entombed in Ice
- The Stone
- Dreamliner

Thanks to @enjoy: A playful & fun production from start to finish. The calm vocals of Avalon Emerson compliment the synthful structure of the songs. The Stone acts as both a heavy stone and a proper interlude in my opinion.

Last 2-3 months was a BIG hell of a ride in my personal life but I'll keep continue to review what I listened during that time period soon.
 
I would also love to add FYC section from the records i have discovered.


-Juliana is the queen and that is the tea.


-Great song title, great synths, great atmosphere. Perfect for the lonely night walks in the city.


-Spanish queens!!


-- I love her.


-- i also love her
