The little details on ‘reputation’ that I love

taylor swift reputation 2 years on taylor swift reputation release date reputation little details trivia

Can you believe it’s been two whole years since ‘reputation’ was released? That’s right, Swifties, today is ‘reputation’s birthday; Taylor Swift’s equivalent of dying your hair black and going through an angsty teenage phase (and I mean that in the best way possible). Happy birthday, ‘rep’! Taylor’s sixth album was a massive success, breaking records, selling two million copies in its first week and spanning a global mega-tour. The album itself is filled with little nuances that I adore, from clever pieces of production, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and little oddities that make it one of my […]

The Script’s ‘Sunsets & Full Moons’ is a journey of self-reflection (Album Review)

The Script are back! With a meagre two years having gone by since their last record (seriously, I’m used to a huge waiting game like with Lady Gaga) the Irish three-piece return with their sixth studio album, ‘Sunsets and Full Moons’. But how does the record shape up? To my ears, it’s a cohesive celebration of everything we know about The Script, albeit a slightly safe venture. First of all, just look at how pretty that album art is! If you’ve read my ‘Lover’ review, you’ll know that I’m a sucker for an album with […]

Marina sparkles at her ‘Love + Fear’ London gig (Tour Review)

marina and the diamonds love + fear tour review london hammersmith apollo o2 marina diamindis love + fear review tour

Stood waiting in a crowd filled with around 5,000 fellow Diamonds, the energy in the air was electric. All eyes peeled to the stage, waiting for Marina Diamindis herself to step out and sing her little heart out. And she didn’t disappoint. The pop songstress might have dropped the ‘Diamonds’, choosing for a more simplistic stage-name of just ‘Marina’, but she’s shining brighter than ever. Opening up with ‘Handmade Heaven’, the ethereal lead single from ‘Love + Fear’, Marina immediately set the tone for the entire gig: light, elegant, with a splash of pure pop […]

Kesha is ‘Raising Hell’ with her euphoric new track

Kesha’s back! Pop queen of the early 2010s, self-confessed party freak and glitter-infused fist-pumper – she’s never been one to shy away from the matter at hand – and her new single is no different. ‘Raising Hell’ is quintessential Kesha. It’s big, it’s brash and it’s in your face. And it doesn’t give a damn. Following on from the release of slightly more mellow ‘Rainbow’ two years ago, ‘Raising Hell’ is the perfect way to introduce us back to the party queen. The track opens in the same vein as ‘Rainbow’ – the gentle trickling […]

‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ is classic Mika, wrapped up in glittering, unwavering joy (Album Review)

After a slew of sugar-coated hits like ‘Lollipop’, ‘Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)’, ‘Love Today’ and ‘Grace Kelly’, Mika is back with his fifth studio album, the personal-titled ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ (and yes, that is his real name). Does the album title mean that Mika’s stripped himself down from the glittery persona? Well yes, and no. And does it mean album number five is the dreaded “this is my most personal album yet” spiel? Again, it’s a mixed bag. The album’s opener, ‘Tiny Love’, is the standout of the album, by far. The […]

Monsters, can you believe it’s been an entire year since ‘A Star Is Born’ was released?! Time flies when you’re listening to a multi-time Grammy winner, apparently. Incase you’ve been living under a rock, the third reiteration of ‘A Star Is Born’ features Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper as lovers – with Bradley’s character Jackson Maine – country superstar – dealing with alcoholism, while Lady Gaga’s character Ally deals with going from dive-bar singer to full-on musical mogul. If you haven’t seen it yet… What have you been doing with your life? The film is […]

marina love + fear acoustic ep review marina and the diamonds album review love and fear acoustic love + fear acoustic album review

Five months ago, Marina came back into our lives after a lengthy hiatus, with her divisive ‘Love + Fear’, a double album about the the two emotions. Five months later, and Marina’s already back! Kind of. As she continues taking the ‘Love + Fear’ tour around the world, she’s gifted her diamonds with an acoustic EP, featuring five stripped-back versions of the tracks from her prior record. But is it any good? In short, yes. If you liked ‘Love + Fear’, you’ll like this little EP. I mean, it’s not going to set the world […]

Fuck it, I love ‘Normal Fucking Rockwell!’ (Album Review)

lana del rey norman fucking rockwell! review ldr nfr! free online listen fuck it i love you the greatest hope is a dangerous thing lana review pop heads popheads

Lana Del Rey is back! Queen of feels, romantic, hopeless lyrics and singing on tire swings. Her latest album is a solid entry into her plethora of Hollywood sadcore records; juggling romanticism, cynicism and tender, fragile positivity all at once. It’s an unusual concoction, but it’s one that Lana, with her unique touch of magic, manages to make work. Lana’s fresh out of fucks to give on ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’, and it’s liberating, both musically and personally.     On the title track, Lana opens the album with the lyric: “God damn man child, you […]

Taylor brings a burst of colour to pop music with ‘Lover’

Taylor Swift Lover Review Lover download mp3 free Cruel Summer I Forgot You Existed Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince Taylor Swift Lover meaning Taylor Swift Lover lyrics

Lover is finally here! And I am more than ready for it. Long gone are the days of ‘reputation’, with its black and white album art, snake motif and bitter-fuelled tracks. The old Taylor is dead, she claimed back in 2017. Well, if the new Taylor’s anything to go by, I want her to stay, stay, stay… Lover’s such a stark contrast to ‘reputation’, whilst simultaneously having songs that sound as though they’d have fit right in on her prior record. It’s the ying to rep’s yang, and the symmetry of the two albums is […]

Every Killers album ranked from worst to best

We all know ‘Mr. Brightside’, the fist-pumping, jealously-infused track that’s perfect to sing at 2am when you’re wasted. But Vegas rockers The Killers have so much more to offer than just their smash hits. Pretty much every record is a gem, with tracks you ain’t gonna want to skip. With six(ish) records under their belt, and another cooking in the oven, I decided to list The Killers’ albums, from their worst to their best. That’s not to say that some albums are bad. If anything, I personally love each and every one of their records; […]
