What’s the Greatest Music Album created?

Another day, another discussion.

It’s time to drop trowel and get dirty with this one. Any album, of any genre, of any decade – what’s the greatest made? Now, that may be a tall order, but I know you can at least suggest a few contenders. Or, maybe you’re ballsy and know the greatest music album created already. Whether it be from a forum you read impartially or whether it’s from your own intellectual thoughts of music knowledge and understanding, pit them against one another in the comments and we can get angry with one another. I mean, if it comes to that. I doubt it would though, as you guys are all great.

Anyway, I digress – GET TO IT!

Why do we love writing about music?

Writing, talking, discussing or .. arguing about music. It’s my go-to conversation starter, my avid favourite talking point about a person and their personality. It immediately tells me a lot about a person dependant on what music they like. Which may be very shallow of me to put on a person, but music is a defining characteristic to a persons’ identity for me. I really enjoy the passionate displays of people hating on a particular genre, a particular story or attitude towards the industry and is captivating to hear a rant on anything music. Especially when you know that they’re serious and their heart is in it. Blogging about music is my little escape from it all and gives me a fantastic platform to release my thoughts, opinions and views on albums, playlists, stories, news and adventures in the music world. And I know I’m not the only one. There’s hundreds of creatives on here who feel exactly the same. Whether they’re avid musicians themselves, or complex journalists willing to escape their current field, the topic of music is a topic everyone can get on board with. Because everyone can listen to music, and have a validated opinion – just for listening and being a fan of some sorts. Before I met my current girlfriend, liking the same music as me was the be-all and end-all, it was simply the defining characteristic for me, because I knew that that would shape our whole conversations, based off gigs, festivals and favourite music artists. Luckily, my girlfriend has favourite genres and festivals that match mine, so it was certainly comfortable during our first couple of meetings with one another. So, if you want some advice from me, save your thoughts on music you like, write them down, and share them with others just. like. you!

Tyler, The Creator – CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: Album Review

A true connoisseur, Tyler The Creator has created his Igor-follow up with CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.

Best picks: CORSO, WUSYANAME, WILSHIRE, LUMBERJACK

Gorgeous, hip, outlandish and perfectly Tyler, the seemless – and quite frankly, flawless – album transitions from one breadth to another, with the outros blending perfectly into another deflective motion of the album dialogue. This time, it’s the bodacious star of Sir Baudelaire.

The wacky, indigenous instrumentals and the lyrical ingenuity that we hear in Hot Wind Blows, MANIFESTO and RISE! is the perfect radio soundtrack riding in our Cadillac’s and Pegassi’s in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto.

In what may have been a difficult turnaround for Tyler to adapt from after writing the stellar concept of Igor, Tyler has made the executive decision of blending the elites of Goblin, Cherry Bomb, Flower Boy and Igor into a fantastic trope of easy-listenin’ lo-fi hip-hop that just is so fun to play. You can certainly he had fun making it, too.

With many others thinking that CMIUGL is the apotheosis of his past art, I couldn’t agree with them more. It has glimpses of old Tyler and new Tyler that is beneficial to all fans of the artistic evolution that is .. Tyler, The Creator.

Let’s Talk: Can you imagine a car journey without music?

______

Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

_______

Another provocative thought that recently occurred to me when I trawled the journey to London the other day. Being just on the road within a minute, the silence was deafening and I just had to put on some music.

This time, as I was driving, I had to whack on the radio, and that justified my music fix enough to take me to the heart of the capital.

So, my thoughts for Friday is this: can you imagine a car journey without music? If so, is it peaceful to you?

Or, if not, what are your PERFECT car playlists?

Car journeys certainly hit different.

Let me know!
