GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE: ‘Best Generations’ – Album Review

Released: January 1, 2018 (Rhythm Zone) Japan has this insane infatuation with greatest hits album. And while this is the T, the most ironic element to these packages is the fact that most of the content in it rarely hits a 10-year mark, let alone 5 years for some artists (no T no shade...).

Chanmina: ‘Chocolate’ – Album Review

Released: November 15, 2017 (Victor Entertainment) Aspiring Japanese rapper Chanmina made some waves last year with her debut effort Miseinen—a record boasting a fun blend of hip-hop and electronic sounds (I recommend her track "Over" from the album; it's pure fire).

Namie Amuro: ‘Feel’ – Album Review

Released: July 10, 2013 (Avex Trax) Feel was the first Namie Amuro album I really got into.

Released: November 8, 2008 (Avex Trax) I'm a bit of a random guy when it comes to iTunes, scrolling through the charts to see what's hot and not. You know, a typical week for me haha.

Taylor Swift: ‘Reputation’ – Album Review

Released: November 10, 2017 (Big Machine Records) Approximately every two-to-three years, Taylor Swift releases a studio album.

Released: June 10, 2015 (Dimension Point) _genic is a record that I had eagerly anticipated on, just like Christmas time when I was five years old.
