#albumoftheday REVIEW: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: THE 20/20 EXPERIENCE: 2 OF 2

Earlier this year Justin Timberlake made his very welcomed return to the music world with The 20/20 Experience, an album chock full of lengthy, rather progressive gems, which I reviewed here: http://www.loveispop.com/reviews/pop/review-justin-timberlake-the-2020-experience/. So far, it’s the year’s best-selling album and it’s also one of the year’s best-reviewed. At the time it was released,...

#albumoftheday MILEY CYRUS: BANGERZ

I know some of my readers will scoff at me for even reviewing this one, but the fact of the matter is that it’s one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the year, pop or otherwise, which is what prompted me to listen to the stream, not the starlet’s controversial and certainly disgusting...

#albumoftheday LORDE: PURE HEROINE

Back in July I reviewed Lorde’s mesmerizing and mind-blowingly good single “Tennis Court” and its glorious B-side “Swingin Party.” And I felt like I was late to the party, having only just heard the 16 year old New Zealand native — real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor — for the first time then, this even...

You may recall my review of Ugly Bunny’s first two singles, “Compromise & Sacrifice” and “Tokyo,” from earlier this month. If not, well, let’s just say that this hot new duo’s sugary electropop confections are sweeter than any treats you’ll ever receive from the Easter Bunny. That said, I can promise you that...

REVIEW: DAVID LYNCH: THE BIG DREAM

David Lynch’s 2011 debut, Crazy Clown Time, was a vocoder-hater’s worst nightmare.  And it wasn’t for people who weren’t into meditation either.  But for any fans of Lynch’s films who’ve ever wondered what the melodies and monologues inside of his head actually sounded like, it was a fascinating listen, even if it was something they...
