mvm.

music in review.


After having a little time to myself after work, I decided to do a little insatiable digging and scouring into the past works and creations of what we saw in terms of music in the 2010s.

After an unwilling acceptance of enjoying chart music a little too much when I was younger, I thoroughly enjoyed the pump-it-loud electronica r’n’b music of Black Eyed Peas, bleary-eyed MIKA and eventually my evolution of indie music with Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks.

I always love venturing down a music wormhole of past pleasantries and gander into what my music tastes used to be like during my childhood.

And by God, how much has it changed. Now, I have no idea who enters the charts at one point during the week. It’s a world of unknown and now, a minimal disdain for all things popular music. Bleurgh.

    • Sonic Highways and Suburbs are a no-brainer for me. Fantastic concept work and overall talented folks with albums to suit. I love the list, my friend!

      • I’ve always enjoyed concept albums. I think Dave and company should get lots of credit for how they wrote Sonic Highways.

        If I had to pick only one from my list, it would be Coheed’s Unheavenly Creatures. I’m still playing it a ton.

        They put out a single last year that I can’t get out of my head. It’s a sequel to Rick Springfield’s Jessie’s Girl.

      • Oh haha that’s brilliant. An oddly satisfying end to the story of Jessie’s Girl. Their virtuous operatic rock concept albums have always stood out from the crowd. I recently got into them when Shoulders appeared on my Spotify’s recommended, and I should definitely revisit some of their old works.

  2. Right? That sequel is such a catchy song. It was totally worth the $1.29 on Itunes. I haven’t read any of their graphic novels upon which the albums are based (all but one), but to me it doesn’t matter. Their stuff rocks.

    Shoulders eh? I can’t say that I know of this band. I’ll look them up.

    Hollywood Park was perhaps my favourite album of 2020. For that album, I had to read the accompanying book. What a story.

    • Oh wow, that’s such a compelling story in regards to The Airborne Toxic Event. I must invest time into the book itself aswell as the album catalogue. What a lovely twist to favourite albums of 2020.
