Foster The People – Torches – Track By Track Album Discussion

Way back in the day around ten years ago when people actually used to purchase physical CDs, I remember being a young teenager and walking into Best Buy to get a copy of Torches, the debut album from indie band Foster The People. Their hit single "Pumped Up Kicks" had been all over the radio [...]

Fall Out Boy – Folie a Deux – Album Discussion (Ten Years Later)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alh6iIvVN9o So, as you can tell by the title, Fall Out Boy’s fourth record, Folie a Deux, is now a whole decade old. Being released on December 16th 2008 in the United States (although it was released early in some other countries), Folie was weird. But 2008 was also a weird time in terms of [...]

The 1975 – I Like It When You Sleep… – Track by Track Album Discussion

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSnAllHtG70 I vividly remember the time when this record was being released back in 2015 and 2016. I anxiously waited for the days the singles would be released, and then the music videos. But February 26th was the most important day of them all. After my college class, I took a thirty minute bus to [...]

The 1975 – The 1975 – Track by Track Album Discussion

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkubQCI4Fxo Ahh, The 1975. A band that has changed so drastically, yet so seemingly effortlessly since their debut back in 2013. I actually even remember the first time I heard “Chocolate” on the radio and immediately thinking “I NEED to know who this is”, to hearing their second effort I like It When You Sleep… [...]

Meghan Trainor – Treat Myself – Album Discussion

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRvKL8FnrtU Meghan Trainor’s third studio album, Treat Myself, was heavily delayed, produced no hit singles and is regarded as a commercial failure, peaking at number 25 on the Billboard albums chart and falling off only three weeks later. And yet, I find this to be her best work yet. I’m sure most people disregarded this [...]

Panic! At The Disco – A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out – Track by Track Discussion

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AZxUtZ2ZgI Panic! At The Disco’s debut album could not have been any weirder. In the midst of the 2000’s pop punk craze and music being in sort of a strange transitionary period, this new band bursts on the scene with a mixture of it all. Pop punk, baroque pop, emo, electronic and alternative rock, just [...]

Britney Spears – The Original Doll – Album Discussion

Unreleased albums are funny pieces of work. Sometimes an artist will scrap and entire project just because they want to start over, sometimes the files get lost or destroyed, and sometimes they get stolen, never to return. But in the case of Britney Spears’ unreleased album, The Original Doll, none of these things apply. Rather, [...]
