Music Review: Che’Nelle’s Believe

Release date: 7.4.2012 Label: EMI Music Japan Purchase: CDJapan |  Rating: 4/5 I’ve never paid any attention to this artist before. But I’m so glad I finally did. Her music is awesome. Taking inspiration from uptempo genres like dance, electro, and dancehall, to midtempo pop, r&b, [...Read More]

Your reaction to Estelle‘s new album can either be one of two ways: absolutely bored to death, or you’re receptive of something fresh. Let’s just say I’m stuck in the middle on this one. Her new music didn’t wow ‘all of me,’ sure there were a few hidden gems along [...Read More]

[Review] Brian Joo’s “Reborn Part 1”

Brian Joo just melts my heart every time he opens his mouth and starts singing. This is a natural talent who I feel doesn’t get the complete recognition he deserves. His last release, “Unveiled,” truly blew me away; the songs were tasteful, unconventional, and totally spectacular. [...Read More]

[Review] Chocolat’s “I Like It”

By Kai Chocolat is overly sweet and “I like it.” The group’s first mini album is maturely recorded with two mid-tempo tracks and two dance numbers. It’s well balanced enough to deliver a solidifying release that’s perfectly fit for mainstream but at the same time makes sense in lyrical [...Read More]

[Review] IU’s “Last Fantasy”

By Kai Korea’s sweetheart isn’t exactly my cup of tea, and by that I mean I’ve never ever listened to her music before. But with the lack of originality these days I became more inclined to listen to whatever it is that’s different. You know, just to expand my [...Read More]

[Review] The Wonder Girls are back!

I’ve always been an avid follower of JYP’s international kpop group, Wonder Girls, so you can only imagine how much I’ve been anticipating their return with some new music.

[Review] Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

Lady Gaga was “Born This Way”. The dance/pop artist became well known for her public theatrics and controversial lyrics since her debut in the music industry, so chances of her taking it down a notch are highly unexpectable on this new record and people shouldn’t be surprised. Let’s just [...Read More]
