Childish Gambino demonstrates his ability to intrigue listeners and surpass superficial rap material on his sophomore album, “Because the Internet.” Not only does the album have catchy lyrics and beats, it dives deep into Gambino's inner... (more »)

The Black Keys have always posed an interesting conundrum for critics. On one hand, this is a band made up of two guys who went from riding around in a rust-bucket El Camino and earning dough performing in local country barrooms to churning out... (more »)

When I finally pulled out my headphones after listening to all one hour and 21 minutes of Pink Floyd's “The Wall,” I stood comfortably numb in jaded confusion. I honestly didn't know – should I file this review under Music or Movies?... (more »)

John Mayer - This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Live albums normally do not appeal to the public because the quality of the artist's voice is often weak and unfamiliar. The voice that everyone is used to disappears and places doubts as to the singer's talent. “Where the Light Is: John... (more »)
Rewind by Rascal Flatts This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

It has been two years since Rascal Flatts released their last album, “Changed.” While I have been a big fan since the start of their career, and I enjoyed “Changed,” it underperformed more than any of their previous efforts. Fortunately... (more »)

First Kamelot review. Kamelot is a symphonic metal band out of Tampa, Florida, USA, in other words, my birth-state, and I'm still here too. These guys have been around for almost 20 years and counting. Ghost Opera is their 2007 album, right... (more »)

Bend and Break by Keane Although this band has been called a sad attempt at cold play and too emotional, this song just strikes a cord with me. It’s a battle with someone’s inner self and their point of breaking. If you have ever had... (more »)

Systematic Chaos by Dream Theater
Custom User Avatar
My third Dream Theater review thus far. Well, I think it's high time to talk about their 2007 album for once. This album has 8 tracks much like Octavarium and has the second longest epic In the Presence of Enemies, standing at 25 and a half... (more »)
Dominae by Ejecta This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
Custom User Avatar
Even though I do like electronic music a lot, I just can’t really get into most 1980s synthpop albums. The lyrical content of them feel too cheesy most of the time and the production just never feels influential or anything that could really... (more »)
