Picture, if you will, the music scene in 1994. Grunge bands such as Alice In Chains and Nirvana were all the rage. Britpop groups like Oasis were hard at work trying to make a dent in the industry. And Stone Temple Pilots had just released their... (more »)
Free Somebody by LUNA This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

“Free Somebody,” the first solo mini album by pitch-perfect f(x) vocalist Luna (Park Sun-young), proves that individual elements can be just as enticing as the entire group. Its lean six tracks are pure sonic gold; each is... (more »)

One glance at the songwriting credits on Taylor Swift’s latest album tells you all you need to know about the crossroads she’s at: about half of the songs are co-written by Max Martin & Shellback, who seem to have a Midas touch... (more »)

Parklife by Blur

OK, OK, before I start this review, let me just say this: I’ve never liked so-called “boy bands”. Absolutely can’t stand them. When they don’t have screaming teenage girls at their feet, they’re writing cutesy songs about peace,... (more »)

Fronted by singer Florence Welch, the band Florence + the Machine invites you into an entirely different world, of rites and charms and more immaterial things. The leading track “Only If For a Night” invites you into this dark, dreamy... (more »)
It's About Us by Alex & Sierra This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Before they won The X-Factor USA, the couple made waves during their audition with their smoky, shapeshifting cover of “Toxic” by Britney Spears. Alex & Sierra, or Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton, return with a ensemble of songs with a sweet,... (more »)
Blue Neighbourhood by Troye Sivan This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Troye Sivan debuts his first full-length album, after already accumulating a hefty following on YouTube. There’s a reason artists keep coming back to colors--every kind of artist. Blue, “the most human color” according to Regina Spektor,... (more »)

Big reputations, big reputations, ooh you and me we’ve got big reputations, Taylor Swift croons, in the album’s second track “End Game,” featuring Ed Sheeran and Future. She makes a game-changing move to confront the press’s... (more »)
Remember Us to Life by Regina Spektor This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
Custom User Avatar
Regina Spektor’s latest album is a homage to older times, while memorizing the present in all its glory. Remember us indeed. Over every song in the album, Spektor’s voice glides, speculating, reminiscing. There’s less of the quirky... (more »)
Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda

The world is abuzz with Lin Manual Miranda's “Hamilton.” The hip-hop musical about the founding father has swept the nation, and is now recognized as one of the best in musical theater. The musical focuses on main... (more »)

The Bends by Radiohead This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
Custom User Avatar
When I first came across Radiohead's second album, I was perplexed. Up till then, I had been raised on Radiohead's later work, and I thought that this would be more of the same  electronic beats and rhythms that had dominated much of the band's... (more »)
