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 […]

Melody Reyne’s new music video leaves us with ‘Wet Dreams’

Melody Reyne Wet Dreams download mp3 new music friday muic review music blogger uk blogger blog music melody passion fruits melody reyne

Two parts R&B, one part soul. That’s the sick combo that Melody Reyne manages to create on her latest track ‘Wet Dreams’. In the ‘Wet Dreams’ music video, Melody’s confident yet humble, soft yet strong. It’s a duality of her femininity and her sexuality that makes the video shine, without coming across as being crude. It’s a fine line to walk, and its one that Melody walks with ease.     Standing on a grassy hill, overlooking the surrounding town, Melody’s dressed in a bright yellow dress, matched with a grandiose faux-fur coat. With a […]

Kylie Mingoue Step Back In Time Review kylie minogue greatest hits review kylie review can't get you out of my head kylie minogue download free mp3 kylie mingoue step back in time free download pop precision since 1987 golden download free

‘Pop Precision since 1987’ is written on the cover of Kylie’s latest greatest hits album, and it couldn’t be more apt.   We’ve had thirty years of the Pop Princess blessing us with pure pop perfection, all starting from the fateful release of ‘Loco-Motion’. Since then, we’ve haven’t been able to get her out of our heads, and with ‘Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection’, we celebrate all things Kylie.     For super fans and casual listeners alike, ‘Step Back In Time’ has something for everyone.

Madonna’s ‘Madame X’ is brilliantly bizarre (Album Review)

madona madame x review dark ballet review madge pop music review music blogger wanted god control medellin madame x review screen streams ray of light

The Queen of Pop is back with a bizarre 15-track record, based on an identity-shifting secret agent who fights against the world’s injustices. Yes, seriously.   Each track takes inspiration from musical influences from across the globe. One minute you’re listening to a Latin-infused song with a catchy trap beat, the next you’re onto a Bohemian Rhapsody-esque tune which whisks into Tchaikovsky’s ‘Nutcracker’, before bowing out with Madonna uttering a spoken word verse as she blows softly like the wind. Weirdly, it all works wonderfully. This is the voice of an artist who has something […]

Taylor Swift’s ‘You Need To Calm Down’ is a sugar-coated political statement (Song Review)

taylor swift you need to calm down song review download mp3 free t swizzle me! lover album release date song review music screen streams

I AM NOT CALM! After weeks upon weeks of speculating, we finally have it. Us Swifties were finally blessed with a new song to follow on from ‘ME!’, rather aptly titled ‘You Need To Calm Down’. And, although it sounds like your standard bubblegum pop song, Taylor has something to say.     In the song’s first part, the ‘Blank Space’ songstress addresses online trolls: “Say it in the street, that’s a knock-out, But you say it in a Tweet, that’s a cop-out.” It’s like ‘Shake It Off’s little sister, instead of telling you how […]

Marina’s ‘Love + Fear’ is a labour of love (Album Review)

marina love + fear album review marina and the diamonds love and fear album review music pop music electra heart froot the family jewels tfj marina diamindis

She’s dropped the ‘Diamonds’, but she’s still got her shine. Marina is back with her fourth studio album, titled ‘Love + Fear’. Dropped in two parts – ‘Love’ and ‘Fear’ respectively – the ‘FROOT’ songstress claims: “It’s true that there only two primary emotions: love and fear, but it is more accurate to say that there is only love or fear for we cannot feel these two emotions together at exactly the same time. They are opposites.” As such, she suggested that we listen to the parts of the double album separately, in order to […]

Lady Gaga’s Enigma show is out of this world (Review)

lady gaga enigma show review vegas mgm park mgm when to get to enigma where to line up enigma lady gaga the fame born this way artpop joanne vegas las vegas

Vegas, the home of the dramatic. One moment you’re walking along in France, the faux Eiffel Tower gazing down at you in the blistering sunshine, the next, hundreds of fountains burst into life to synchronised music. When the sun falls, neon lights decorate the night’s sky, while the sound of chinking casinos waft through the air. I mean, of course, Lady Gaga has a residency here! The over the top glitz and glam is the perfect backdrop for Mother Monster’s show, and it’s a theme that carries its way through the whole set. Sit back, […]

JST FRNDS’ latest track is a slice of pop perfection (Song Review)

JST FRNDS show me yours review all night long need me spotify

If there’s one song you need to add to your ‘summer bops 🔥🔥’ playlist (no, just me?), it’s ‘Show Me Yours’ by the powerhouse pop-duo JST FRNDS. Following on from the success of their smash hit ‘All Night Long’, the duo are back, and it’s a track that you’re gonna want to play again and again. Taking influence from the age of minimalist pop (think ‘Strip That Down’ meets ‘If You’re Over Me’), ‘Show Me Yours’ manages to chase current trends whilst allowing JST FRNDS to retain their own sense of musical identity. And it’s […]

You need to binge ‘Dead To Me’ immediately (Review)

dead to me review dead to me netflix judy jen

Another day, another series on Netflix that I have no choice but to binge watch in an entire sitting. Sigh. Why does Netflix keep doing this to me?!   This show is a little different from the norm, in that it tends to jump around in tone and genre. One moment it’s a light-hearted comedy, the next it’s making you fight back tears, then a minute later you’re watching a woman smash up a car with a golf club. Just trust me when I say that it’s a wild ride from start to finish.   […]
