  1. Nirvana - Nevermind Just using the Nirvana logo because that album cover would probably get me banned. Reviewing this album from the request of @Bart. This is definitely something different for me as I mostly just listen to hip hop music so I'm interested in listening to my first grunge rock album. Smells Like Teen Spirit: 9/10 So straight off the bat, one of the most popular and recognisable songs of the 90's, and I can definitely see why it's such a big song. Kurt Cobain's vocal ability and charisma unreal on this song. The repetitive chorus and the melodies are catchy as hell. I love when the guitar comes in before the chorus and then how everything just goes off when the chorus starts. Kurt Cobain's guitar solo in the middle of the song is also sick as well, you really can't help to bob your head along to it. The songwriting on this song is also very ambiguous, as the lyrics aren't very straightforward and the meaning can be left up to interpretation, for me I feel like it's about fame and the pressures and anxieties that come with it. Great way to kick off this Nirvana album. In Bloom: 9/10 This song like Smells Like Teen Spirit, has some pretty catchy lyrics and melodies. The chorus is amazing here again, and is actually pretty ironic considering it's taking the piss out of people who don't understand Nirvana's songs and jump on their bandwagon and sing along without getting the lyrics. I also like the guitar solo before the final chorus, as it almost changes the mood of the song for a moment from the sing-song vibe beforehand. Come As You Are: 10/10 Come As You Are is bloody incredible. I love the instrumentation on this song as it compliments Kurt Cobain's emotional vocals throughout the song, as he sings about fame and how it makes you think about people around you and if you can trust them as friends, but he also says that he wants to be treated like any other person and that he'll treat others the same way. He also proclaims in the chorus and numerous times throughout the song that he doesn't have a gun, which is pretty ironic and haunting on here considering he ended up committing suicide, but I do feel like the lyrics could have a different meaning. My favourite song from this album so far, definitely, just nothing I can really complain about at all. Breed: 10/10 This song is another one of my favourites so far. It just goes really hard if you can say that about a rock song. It just never lets up at all, with the constant banging of the drums and the guitar in the background of the song as Cobain is practically screaming his lyrics, shouting and repeating a lot of phrases throughout the song. It feels like Kurt is going into details of fear and depression on the chorus and that he's trying to block everything out. There also seems to be lyrics about issues with relationships and family. Lithium: 8/10 I don't enjoy this song as much as the others but this is still pretty good. This song Cobain just sounds like he's gone crazy and has lost his mind. In the verses he calmly addresses his issues with depression and the fact that he finds that all his friends are in his head, which probably means they're imaginary. It also sounds like he's turning to God as a method to try and find some sort of sanity. The chorus sounds like he's breaking down inside his own mind as he proclaims numerous times he's not going to crack. Polly: 7/10 In terms of the vocals from Cobain and the instrumentation, this is probably the most chill sounding song on the album so far, but the lyrics and the message of the song from Nirvana are far from that really. The song is about an actual kidnapping of a teenage girl, as Cobain plays the part of the kidnapper in this scenario. He goes into all of the dirty and gruesome detail of the event, capturing the part of the rapist, as he sings about feeding the girl after abusing her, so he can control her. Definitely an interesting listen but not something I see myself returning to. Territorial Pissings: 10/10 This is another song I'm definitely loving off this album. It's only just over 2 minutes long but it still feels jam packed with musical content. This song really has more of a punk vibe to it compared to the other songs on the album, showing the band's versatility. Kurt screams about his experiences from his childhood and paranoia on this song. Kurt sounds like he's completely lost his voice by the end, it's pretty class. Drain You: 8/10 This is seemingly a love song about the relationship between Kurt and his girlfriend Tobi Vail, and about how they eventually broke up. This is once again filled with a lot of catchy melodies and the instrumentation from Kurt and the rest of Nirvana is pretty nice as well. There's nothing really standout from this song but still a good listen from a musical standpoint. Lounge Act: 7/10 This is another love song about his girlfriend Tobi Vail, written from the time they were still together. This is another nice song but there's nothing really on here that would make me want to return to this song again. Kurt's singing is fine, and so is the background music to this song. Stay Away: 9/10 I really love this song, the lyrics and melodies are insanely catchy, with the first chorus delivered like something out of a pop rock song, as it then goes into Kurt screaming stay away repeatedly. This is just a really sick listen with the guitars and drums hitting really heavy, and Kurt's vocals being incredible once again. The "God is gay" line towards the end is pretty funny as well. On A Plain: 8/10 On A Plain explores many of the issues that have been ever present through out this album as he goes into more detail about his problems with drugs, love and depression. He also comes across really selfishly as he says that he "loves himself more than you", possibly talking about Tobi Vail again. The chorus is pretty catchy on here again, pretty accessible listen. Something In The Way: 9/10 I really love the vibe of this song, and I think it's a great way to close of the album. Kurt sings very somberly and quietly, and the guitar is very low volume as well. I love how everything slightly picks up for the chorus with the drums coming in with the guitar and Kurt himself getting louder. This song references his problems with happiness again, as he seemingly sings about his family kicking him out, and that he felt like he always got in the way of their happiness. It could also be interpreted to Cobain not being able to find love. He also goes into detail about homelessness and even about having to live under a bridge because he had nowhere to stay. It's pretty sad when you start to look into the lyrics, but an awesome way to end this album. OVERALL RATING: 87 (A-) Yeah this album is really sick. Even as a hip hop fan I can still appreciate Nirvana a lot, musically this really is incredible at points and I really couldn't help but nod my head along to the music on the majority of these songs. Kurt Cobain really was an incredible songwriter as well. I feel like there's still a lot to uncover here with this album, so apologies if I've missed something because I most definitely have, more than numerous listens are probably needed to understand some of these songs, but right now I'm still just loving this musically and for Cobain's performances. I can definitely see some inspiration from this album in the hip-hop scene, now especially, with a lot more "emo" rappers coming through the last decade or so. Great recommendation Bart, I'll try and get into some more rock music if I get the chance. I guess I'd recommend this to fans of grunge rock music, but you've probably already heard this album at this point anyways, even fans of other types of music should give this a chance though, it's a seriously entertaining listen.

  11. Aries - WELCOME HOME I'll be reviewing this Aries album by request of @Prince. Not a massive fan of emo rap and even pop rap to an extent so don't know what I'll think about this album. BAD NEWS: 8/10 On the opening song Aries sings about blacking out at a party whilst also saying that he does adderall and how he's addicted to the drug. Towards the end he also talks about how he has his personal demons. "And all of my demons in bed, what you call it? I left all of my demons on read, not a problem. Wake up, wake up" I feel like this might be him saying that he tries to ignore his problems and demons in his life which could tie into why he does drugs to make himself feel happier. Despite the lyrics there's a really nice chill vibe to this song because of the production with the guitar in the background and Aries has a really laid back voice as well. The hook on this song is probably my favourite part of the song, it's really catchy and I like how the instrumental switches up slightly during his singing. SAYONARA: 7/10 Aries talks more about his problems and goes into his issues with drinking and relationships. Can't really relate much to a lot of these topics but it's still interesting to listen to his story, I'm liking it more than I expected because he's not just doing the usual mumble shite or screaming about wanting to kill himself the entire song, this one has a more laid back feel again with the really chill production, it's just an easy listen with some nice vocals over it. The hook is really good on this one as well, could easily see this getting stuck in my head. Just not a massive fan of much else besides the hook and the production though, verses are alright. DEITY: 9/10 This song is really bloody good. There's really not that much hip hop influence on this song and feels a lot more of a pop rock song. The hook sounds like something WWE might have had as one of their PPV songs from about 10 years ago but it's actually really relaxing to listen to. I like how the beat switches up throughout the song with different instruments coming in and out. To get into the lyrics of this song, it sounds like Aries is in a relationship with a girl who loves him but he doesn't love her back, it's pretty basic emo rock/pop stuff but I still really enjoy the music on this song, another chorus which is really catchy, they're definitely a strong point of this album so far. AMY'S GRAVE: 7/10 This is probably one of the more depressing songs on the album in terms of the lyricism and Aries vocals. Aries is basically singing about feeling worthless and saying that he doesn't care if he dies. This is kinda what I was talking about earlier with emo music but with Aries he's not just saying a lot of edgy stuff for the sake of it, still find it hard to really relate to a lot of what he's saying since I haven't lived through his experiences, so someone might enjoy this more than me or get more out of it than I can. I love the singing on the hook and the darker instrumental on this song compared to some of the others. The song overall is quite enjoyable but it's not something I can see myself returning to that often. RACECAR: 8/10 RACECAR definitely gives me a lot more of a pop rap vibe than anything else on this album. This gives me a BROCKHAMTPON vibe from some of their earlier songs with the production on this. Aries singing on here is very addictive again, very chill feels off his vocals again. Didn't get much out of this song lyrically if I'm being honest, just thought that this was a nice tune because of the instrumental and chorus. PONY: 6/10 This is an okay song, don't enjoy it that much compared to some of the other songs on this album, there's nothing that I can say that stands out as bad on this song, it just doesn't feel like anything important is going on in the song and the music isn't that interesting. The acoustic guitar in the background is fine and so is Aries' singing they just don't really grab my attention that much. CAROUSEL: 9/10 I really love this song, there's a really fun vibe to the song and sounds like a song that was made for the Summer. I love his rapping and flow on the first verse, he just sounds really confident in his abilities and doesn't sound awkward at all. This is like RACECAR slightly in relation to the pop rap feeling on this song, but I enjoy this one more due to the production and because him switching up between his singing and rapping on this song. Can sadly relate to this one a bit more with him on this with "staying in for the summer" lyric on the chorus. SANTA MONICA: 6/10 This song definitely feels like a slight change to the rest of the album with this song sounding a lot happier from Aries. The lyrics are kinda corny and cheesy on this song and I get that feeling from the production as well. The singing is decent throughout, this song just doesn't really hit me like some of the other songs, the chorus wasn't as good or catchy as some of the others on the album as well. HOME: 6/10 I appreciate Aries going in a different direction with this song, with more darker and eerier production and him switching it up a lot in terms of the music as he discusses his childhood and how he wasted it, but also how he'd like to return back to those days. I found it hard to keep interest due to the song being the longest track on the album, it's clear he was going for a big closer though so I can understand why he tried to fill it with a lot of music. I like that he was going for a heartfelt ending with him almost shouting his lyrics towards the end, and I like the instrumental that goes on during it, just doesn't really make this song worth listening to the whole way through. OVERALL RATING: 73 (B-) This is actually quite good, I enjoyed this a lot more than what I was expecting to, it did start to go downwards a bit towards the end but there really was a lot of great songs on this album, first 5 are definitely sick. Aries is only a young artist who I feel will definitely have a lot more to offer in the future, he's one of the best emo rappers I've heard from this current scene, he has a good voice for the genre and he actually puts thought into what he says, the production on here is also amazing as well. Looking forward to seeing what he does next and if he can improve on himself after this. Good recommendation from Prince.
  12. Taker VS HHH at Mania 27 is 2011 MOTY for me. It's one of my favourite matches of all time and there was a lot of classic moments like Triple H using the tombstone on Undertaker and the final moment with Triple H battering Taker with the steel chair. Story for Cena VS Punk is amazing and so is the match but HHH and Undertaker is just a more entertaining watch for me.
  13. Brad vs Chris Jericho Smith and Julius vs Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins Dieter Schneider and Arius vs Lio Rush, Finn Balor, and Shinsuke Nakamura Hans Clayton vs Shawn Michaels: Steel Cage Sameer vs AJ Styles
