Kevin’s Music Reviews: A Few New Tunes

Ariana Grande – My Everything As a follow-up to her debut album Yours Truly, Ariana Grande’s latest pop delight package employs her brand of R&B chart-pop to decidedly lukewarm reception from critics. I can’t say I don’t disagree – the sexy and breezy “Love Me Harder” is my standout, but then so much of the […]

Kevin’s Music Reviews: 新しいデラックスライフ (New Life DeLuxe)

Here is a truly bizarre album, especially taken out of the context of its genre. I had trouble finding this album for obvious reasons – for one thing I can’t type in Japanese, and my only exposure to this album at the time was though a “vaporwave essentials” image, which of course I can’t copy […]

Kevin’s Music Reviews: Jet Set Radio (Dreamcast Soundtrack)

Going down the list of its unfortunately small library of games, Sega’s Dreamcast has no shortage of standout soundtracks to brag about. The obvious rhythm games Space Channel 5 and Samba De Amigo are the first that come to mind, but lest we forget Shenmue’s tense traditional Japanese ambiance, Skies of Arcadia boasting some of […]

Kevin’s Music Reviews: Eternal Sonata (XBOX360/PS3 Soundtrack)

Even in the exhausted JRPG genre, there wasn’t a game quite like Eternal Sonata. Originally released in 2007 by Tri-Crescendo for the Xbox 360, Eternal Sonata more closely resembles a work of poetry in motion (albeit a cheesy one) than an epic endeavor to save the world. Delving into the subconscious and musings of a […]
