Probably around six years ago at this point, I found the Youtube channel of Dr. Brixx and my life has never been the same. Growing up as an “emo” kid, I listened heavily to pop punk and alternative rock of the 2000s, with a major emphasis on pop inspired, guitar driven music. I loved anything alternative and listened to a wide range of bands, all of which are included in this mix in one way or another. When I initially came across this perfectly hour long curated mix, I sat there for the full hour and reminisced on all these masterpieces from my favorite genre of music from the past twenty years. It’s amazing how they all fit together and how identifiable every song is. Whether or not the lyrics are highlighted, the melody or just a small sing along part, every little part of every song shines on it’s own and still manages to feel like one cohesive project at the same time. I can’t even begin to count how many hours I’ve spent listening to this but once it’s over, it never feels enough and I’m prepared to hit the replay button every single time.
