  2. Review Essential Albums: Madonna – Erotica

    1992 was a pivotal year for pop music icon Madonna. Two years after the release of her international smash hit ‘Vogue’, which bought underground gay ballroom culture from the streets of New York to the rest of the world. And a year after the release of the The Immaculate Collection, the highest selling compilation by a solo artist, Madonna’s career was on a constant upswing both creatively and commercially. As the world’s favourite provocateur entered the second phase of her career, her fame grew, her artistry matured and the themes of sexuality and religion, which have deep roots within Madonna’s career tracing all the way back to 1984’s ‘Like A Virgin’, pushed ‘Deeper and Deeper’ into territory never before explored by a mainstream pop star. As you can imagine, the world was very different in 1992. Even I, who was not even alive during one of music’s most pivotal eras, can understand that a female artist breaching the boundaries of sex and religion would be unthinkable for many people. Leading up to the release of Madonna’s fifth studio album Erotica, signs of Madonna’s incessant need to rebel were laid bare. From ‘Like A Prayer’s’ burning crosses, black Jesus starring in the video to the theatrical Blond Ambition Tour of 1990, and the film Truth or Dare, that documented the tour, the world should have forecast Madonna’s next creative adventure to make seismic waves in the [removed] culture. They did not. On 20th October 1992, Madonna released her visual-concept album Erotica simultaneously with Sex, a coffee table book containing explicit images of the singer shot by fashion photographers Steven Meisel and Fabien Baron. The visual album was met with stagnant reviews from critics whilst contemporary fans, many of whom identified as part of the LGBT community, celebrated the project. The year 1992 not only marked a year of animosity from Madonna’s critics but also an era of suffering for the LGBT community as a result of the AIDS epidemic. Madonna has always been an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community, especially during the height of the AIDS epidemic. In a similar fashion to the safe sex pamphlet inserted into copies of her Like A Prayer album in 1989, Madonna used Erotica as a platform to discuss safe sex to the point of the Sex book being packaged in a condom inspired wrapper. The album’s final ballad ‘In This Life’ pays tribute to two of Madonna’s close friends who died of AIDS. ‘He was only twenty three / Gone before he had his time / It came without a warning / Didn't want his friends to see him cry / He knew the day was dawning / And I didn't have a chance to say goodbye’ she croons on the sorrowful eulogy. ‘In This Life’, much like the chart topping single ‘This Used To Be My Playground’, released three months before Erotica, shows Madonna’s emotional fragility. It may come as a surprise to discover that Erotica is not the grossly carnal sex album you may expect. The album’s tracks range from deeply personal anecdotes: ‘In This Life’, ‘Rain’, ‘Secret Garden’ to disco bops: ‘Deeper and Deeper’, ‘Fever’ and gritty New Jack Swing confessions: ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Where Life Begins’, ‘Thief of Hearts’ to a dancehall tinged call for world peace: ‘Why’s It So Hard?’. Madonna crafted the album’s unique combinations of sounds with her co-producer and co-writer Shep Pettibone, who had previously remixed several of Madonna’s 1980s hits by turning them into modern 1990s house anthems. He also and produced ‘Vogue’. Pettibone kept a diary detailing his studio sessions with Madonna, with the first entry dated November 1991. According to Pettibone, Madonna wanted the album to sound raw ‘as if it were recorded in an alley at 123rd Street in Harlem.’ As a result, the album’s blend of hip-hop, jazz, New Jack Swing, funk, disco and house are sprinkled throughout the record and give it an authentic, cinematic quality which could overlay a picturesque scene of New York’s bourgeoisie and the rebels of the clubs and ballrooms. The title track, lead single and album opener ‘Erotica’ is narrated by Madonna’s alter ego Dita. ‘If I take you from behind / push myself into your mind / when you least expect it… / will you try to reject it?’ is a playful reference to Madonna’s relationship with her critics. The song is somewhat of a companion to ‘Justify My Love’ which, like ‘Erotica’, has spoken word verses which are also utilised on the album’s jazzy closing track ‘Secret Garden’. The rest of the album unfolds much like a journal in which Madonna reflects on her past relationships and lovers in the hip-hop tinged ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Waiting’ and ‘Words’. ‘Bad Girl’ tells the fateful story of a drunken, chain smoking woman whose bingeing cannot stop her feel dissatisfied with her relationship with an unknown male. The high concept music video, directed by David Fincher stars Christopher Walken as Madonna’s character’s guardian angel. Not only is Erotica filled with sorrow, it also explores sensuality. ‘Where Life Begins’ is a hip-hop slow jam in which Madonna cheekily celebrates cunnilingus. Though she has never been regarded as a powerhouse vocalist, Madonna’s crystal clear vocals carry ‘Rain’s’ trip hop melody to extraordinary highs and at some moments, evoke Karen Carpenter. The songs turbocharged middle-eight section seamlessly leads into Madonna’s dual recital of lines through both right and left channels, further showing Pettibone’s exquisite production and Madonna’s keen ear for a catchy melody. The ‘Vogue’ sampling ‘Deeper and Deeper’ is the album’s most gleeful song takes listeners back to the disco era, as Madonna takes on the persona of a young man coming out. She declares ‘This feeling inside, I can't explain / But my love is alive, and I'm never gonna hide it again’ over a nineties house beat before leading into a flamenco guitar breakdown. The surrealistic visual pays tribute to the work of Andy Warhol and 1970s disco culture. Despite the lyrical and musical strength of Erotica’s songs, the album, and its singles were considered flops in comparison to blockbuster eighties hits ‘Material Girl’ and ‘Papa Don’t Preach.’ Erotica was Madonna’s first album not to top the Billboard 200 albums chart and sold “only” 6 million copies worldwide. For contemporary critics, the hits were not big enough and in their eyes, the world’s biggest pop star was unable to back up her ‘gimmicks’ with sales receipts. The Erotica era became the perfect time for the society, both men and women, to crucify the woman who defied everything in the unwritten rule book of pop. When I first became a Madonna fan around six years ago, it became clear that Erotica and the Sex book were seen as blemishes in Madonna’s otherwise smash hit filled career. Even from a modern perspective, in which every female pop star has used elements of the Madonna Blueprint, the album and its visuals maintained their astonishing impact. Erotica is an essential album because it is incredibly bold – both for 1992 and a quarter of a century later. Madonna’s fight for the free expression of sex, religion and romance for all is interwoven throughout her work and is most prominent during the Erotica era. Erotica’s legacy has birthed Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade, and has inspired the today’s biggest pop divas; Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Pink, Christina Aguilera and Nicki Minaj et al. Erotica is an unconventional ode to feminism and homosexuality before these concepts became popular trending topics. This is one of the many reasons why the album was listed by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in August 2017 as one of the most revolutionary albums of all time. ‘...few women artists, before or since Erotica, have been so outspoken about their fantasies and desires. Madonna made it clear that shame and sexuality are mutually exclusive. In the end, Erotica embraced and espoused pleasure, and kept Madonna at the forefront of pop's sexual revolution.’ It is safe to say that no one will ever be able to top Erotica. http://www.redbrick.me/music/slider-music/essential-albums-madonna-erotica/
  3. Review From the Record Crate: Madonna – “Erotica” (1992)

    Anyone who claims that Madonna’s appeal has only ever been erotic is kidding themselves – she’s so much more interesting than that. Yet from the very start, erotica was certainly a primary element of her appeal. Her voice had a tinge of sexual urgency without ever tipping over into blatantly adult-content. And because anticipation is so much more exciting than release, Madonna’s refusal (mostly) to belt out her pop songs at the top of her lungs, keeping them tightly wrapped in understatement, suggested future pleasures in the bedroom without fully succumbing to them. Just like a virgin touched for the very first time. But the religion/sex mashup “Like a Prayer” saw a decided turn towards a more provocative exploitation of her sexual starlet image. And hot (very hot) on its heels came “Justify My Love”, in which Madonna limited her vocals even further to the point where she was practically just talking in-tune, making her sound all the more sultry. Erotica follows on in the manner of the sexual frankness of “Like a Prayer” and the vocal lack of fussiness of “Justify My Love”. The album’s a series of dance tunes, each one on average longer than 5 minutes, that combine to create an aura of erotic indulgence delayed gratification. Somewhat cold and distant, building from the bottom up with its plethora of drum machines and chilly synths, the tunes take a while to sink in; yet Madonna is always there to promise the pleasure will come later. She still wants to take you there, but slowly this time, and you’re damned right at her own pace. I don’t think she ever sounded as in control as on this album – with the exception, perhaps, of Music. She takes enjoyment from the male objects of her desire, she toys with them, she’s sometimes hurt by them. She realises there’s something a little scary about going “Deeper and Deeper” – in love, if not in sex – but you can rarely hear that tentativeness in her voice. After all, sexual power can never be absolutely complete, because a relationship relies on two people, and that other person can always fuck it up. Yet Madonna sounds as autonomous, as in control of her pleasures, as it’s possible to be, on a smart album that acknowledges the complexities of sexual relationships between flawed members of the ever-so-flawed species we call the human race. Humanity emerges from the synth soundscapes in the form of an all-pervading soft funk that leans heavily on Doug Wimbish’s bass, particularly on “Waiting”, which could almost be a De La Soul track. I don’t use that comparison lightly; on many occasions Erotica verges on hip-hop, and producer Andre Betts even manages to sneak in a rap on “Did You Do It?” As usually is the case with good artists, the use of hip-hop production techniques contributes an exciting creative aura in which almost anything can happen (it’s the reason why hip-hop is easily the best genre of music in the world today). Madonna’s often spoken-word technique fits in with that aura, as does the unexpected cover of “Fever” (the best since Elvis), and the sampling of LL Cool J on “Bye Bye Baby”. ‘Forget the rules’ she says on that last song, and boy does she manage to live by that mantra throughout the rest of the album. Reviews were pretty mixed when Erotica first came out, and it still tends to get forgotten amidst discussions about the Queen of Pop, which inevitably focus on Like a Prayer and her numerous hit singles. Truth is that I don’t like it quite as much as a few of her other albums, including the seminal Like a Prayer of course, but also the glorious mess of I’m Breathless (an album that contains the line ‘Hanky panky/Nothing like a good spanky’ and a song called “I’m Going Bananas”), Music, and the slowly unspooling Ray of Light. Yet Erotica is probably her most coherent statement of intent. It’s an incredibly brave flip of the bird, so much as to say ‘I don’t care what you think’, to everyone who thought her career simply boiled down to the one word of its title. https://www.theyoungfolks.com/music/111718/from-the-record-crate-madonna-erotica-1992/
  4. Review #MonsterListens: Bedtime Stories (1994)

  5. Review Watch Drake star in the new Virginia Black commercial with his dad

    Last year, Drake launched a line of whiskey called Virginia Black. As expected, Drake stars in the latest advertisement for the brand which features his hit single "Passionfruit" off More Life. During the commercial, Drake sips on a glass of whiskey alone at a bar while carefully making his way toward a woman of interest. As it turns out, she's had her eye on someone else the entire time—Drake's father, Dennis Graham. Earlier this summer, Drake randomly posted a few short ads for Virginia Black on Instagram that featured Dennis along with his signature catch phrase "One Sip, and Wooh!" In a recent cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, Drake formally announced his return to film and television. Watch all the family drama unfold in the commercial, above. xxx

  9. Taylor is BACK!!! After teasing her fans with two singles with impressive music videos each, and two more promotional singles that left us in awe - she dropped her latest album, “reputation”, this Friday and so, here is our review! We decided to do a three-way track-by-track review, so that every song gets dragged and praised! Reviewed by: @#Music, @Alex. & @TattooedHeart Read our review here!!
  10. Reputation- did it live up to the hype?

    Some people haven’t listened, so do people who have listened think it is up to Taylor’s par and how will it affect the sales? I would give it a B B-. It seems fairly frontloaded. I have only listened once. It might grow on me. It seems like 1989, only a little worse with more auto tune. My fav songs- End Game Getaway Car Gorgeous New Years Day This album will not age well, in 5 years, people won’t remember it like Speak Now, Red, or 1989. With leaks, 2 million sales is a reach.
  11. Review First Critic’s Review of reputation

    It got a B+!! Maybe it won’t be as bad as I thought it would be.. Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' remains stellar on new album (Review) CLEVELAND, Ohio - If there's one thing Taylor Swift doesn't have to worry about, it's her reputation. No matter how many tabloids write about her, people hate on her or guys regret dating her, Swift will still sell millions of records and be the rare modern pop star whose album release feels like an epic event. That's what makes the rollout of her new album "Reputation" a bit disappointing. "Look What You Made Me Do"is one of the worst songs Swift has ever released. Even in the context of the rest of the album, it feels like several bad decisions that never mesh. Paired with "...Ready For It?" (Another meh song)," the first singles from "Reputation" feel like the most forceful way Swift could have came out of the gate. But, in reality, Swift and her team - mainly producers Max Martin, Shellbeck - overplay their hand with heavy synth sounds and wannabe Skrillex-style EDM, which isn't representative of an album that's serves as one of Swift's most ambitious projects to date. "End Game," the song featuring Ed Sheeran and rapper Future that so many fans were worried about, is quite intoxicating. Swift drops lines like ""I swear I don't love the drama/It loves me!" on what is easily the best R&B song of her career. Another early gem comes in the form of "Delicate," where Swift does her best Imogen Heap impression over a cascading electronic beat. "Delicate" is the first proof that things work better when Swift keeps the mood light. For instance, "Gorgeous" plays like a beautiful, old-school Swift song. Lines like "You're so gorgeous, I can't say anything you face, 'cause look at your face" find Swift at her wittiest. Elsewhere, The blissful vibes continue on "Getaway Car," the kind of dramatic tune that Jack Antonoff (whose plays a big roll in the album's second half) writes for his band Bleachers. King of My Heart" brilliantly plays up its 1980s vibe, borrowing the drum beat from Phil Collins' hit "Take Me Home," while "Dress" finds Swift milking the emotional elements of a fairy tale romance. Fans will be swooning for days. Meanwhile, songs like "Call It What You Want" and "Dancing With Our Hands Tied" deliver the epic, mainstream pop Swift has spent the past half-decade reaching for. Just one song on "Reputation" goes past the four-minute mark, making for a relatively smooth pop showcase. Yet, with all the album's production dynamics, it's the piano driven closer "New Year's Day" that serves as the boldest statement. It's an emotionally powerful ballad that affirms one thing: Love her or hate her, never doubt Swift as a songwriter. The only reputation you'd be ruining is your own. Grade: B+

Ever since she dropped the lead single ‘Love’, many have speculated about the date of release for ‘Lust For Life’ – and finally it is here! The first thing that the listener realises is how different the cover is from her previous work. Not only she has decided to leave behind her paradigmatic typography, but she is finally smiling. Wearing a 60s outfit, Del Rey is about to show us quite a different side of her throughout the album. And I will not even get into the car theories… [...] READ IT HERE!
  16. Review Rainbow | My Review

    Everybody else seemed to be doing one, so I thought I would as well. Bastards: This is a raw, amazing track. I think it encapsulates the entire album, with a message of perseverance. Although the lyrics are incredible and powerful, I did find it a tad too slow for my taste. However, the last minute is incredible and is one of the reasons I love the song. Let 'Em Talk (feat. Eagles of Death Metal): The song has a fantastic message, very similar to Bastards. It says ignore the toxicity around you and carry on. The chorus is one of the best I have heard in a while from any artist. This has become one of my favorites on the album, it makes me want to smile and dance. Woman (feat. The Dap-Kings Horns): I love this song so much. All of my friends who are not as into Kesha also love this track. The lyrics aren't very deep, but they aren't mean to be, it is just about taking pride in who you are. The song makes you dance, sing and laugh along with Kesha. It's an enormously fun track. Hymn: I have heard so many mixed opinions on this song. The song has a great chorus and similar to Bastards, the final minute is incredible. Lyrically the song is also good in my opinion, some have considered it "cheesy", but I think it's straightforward and I appreciate it for what it is worth. However, the only place I fault this song is when she sings "Hymn, hymn, hymn", something just sounds off there. Besides that, it is a great track. Praying: Perfect. Need I say more? I was so emotional when I initially listened to this track, as were many others. I was always wondering what type of music she would comeback with, and this was the best way to do it. A great song in every way, with a fantastic video alongside it. Even my over-critical parents and grandparents loved the song, which says a lot. Learn to Let Go: This may be my favorite song off the entire record, the message resonated with me and the chorus was phenomenal. It was also my favorite music video out of Kesha's discography, and on a superficial level the blue hair is my favorite that she has had. Finding You: I enjoyed this song, it sounds great and the chorus is good. I didn't think the track was super special sonically, but lyrically it is fantastic. Rainbow: This song means so much to me, every time I hear this I smile. So big. It is so powerful and knowing where she was at when she wrote the track, makes it that much more meaningful. I needed a song like this, and Kesha delivered. The song made it seem like she was talking right to you, and somehow felt like a rainbow. I also really enjoyed the music video, it was simple, but special and necessary. Hunt You Down: I don't really love or hate this song, the style is just not really for me. I know some people have loved it, based on other reviews. But I just can't get into it. However, it is nice to see Kesha joke around, after so many serious, hard-hitting tracks. I did find the placement in the album a bit strange though, proceeding such a powerful track such as Rainbow. Boogie Feet (feat. Eagles of Death Metal): Great track! I have no complaints, it makes me want to dance, so it's mission was a success. It is so fun. I hold it highly and it is also one of my favorites off of the album. Boots: A really fun track, that you have to sing and dance-along to. The final minute, like many of the other songs, was also amazing. Old Flames [Can't Hold a Candle to You (feat. Dolly Parton)]: Similar to Hunt You Down, I just could not really get into this track. I love much of Dolly's work, but this was just never the song for me. Lyrically, it's great, but it is just too slow for my taste. Godzilla: This song has a really cute message, which is my main reason for loving it. However, it may be a skippable track from me in the future, just because of the pace of it. Spaceship: What a closer! I love this track so much. It is a message which I entirely relate to, and I'm sure many others could as well. The chorus sounds great. If I could make one critique, I would just make it a tad shorter. All in all, this album is one of my favorites that I have ever listened to. She continues to raise the bar for herself. Cannot wait to see her tour and future work.

  21. Dairy of an Otaku #3

    ~ Dairy of an Otaku ~ #3 My God, I just realized it's been 2 months since I posted in this Blog. Such a shame, I've been slacking Anime lately. But now, I'm back at it again and just wanted to mention I re-watched both seasons of Attack on Titan. Gave to stay strong to wait another year (if we're lucky) for some new material. But I loved the OVA's especially the one about Levi's backstory. Also finished the Attack on Titan Junior one today. Nothing too special, but it was amusing. So by saying this I want to make an overview of things I'll be watching ASAP and we'll see what I can get to in this week. I'm of course always looking for recommendations so leave them in the comments below! ON BOARD TO WATCH ¤ Alice & Zouroku ¤ I remember trying out the first episode of this one and enjoying it and feeling intrigued to find out more about the story. And now that it's been two months since I posted for the last time, I checked and all the episodes are online now. So will definitely be watching! Summary: The story centers on a little girl called Sana, who is one of the children that holds the power of "Alice's Dream," an ability that enables her to materialize anything she imagines. After escaping a lab where she was a test subject, Sana ends up in a normal world where she encounters an old man named Zouroku, but will he help her? ¤ Hinako Note ¤ Definitely loved the first episode of this one and the final episode of this one has also been posted online. I can not wait to finish this one. The characters were all so cute and the scenery was breathtaking, so I'm excited to see how this storyline unfolds. Summary: Hinako is a shy little girl whom animals are instinctively drawn to. Because of this, Hinako works as a scarecrow to keep said animals away from the crops in her neighbors fields. Thus the tale of the scarecrow girl begins! ¤ The Eccentric Family ¤ I've been looking forward to watching this one! It has two seasons, so I've got some serious bing-ing to do. Haven't seen anything of this one yet, with all the gifs with the animals and magic that I've seen is already getting me excited and there's not much more persuading I need. Summary: In Kyoto, there are three kinds of residents: humans, raccoon dogs, and tengu. Shimogamo Yasaburou is the third son of the Shimogamo raccoon dog family. His father, Souichirou, had been the head of Kyoto raccoon dog community until he was eaten by the human members of "Friday Club". While taking care of old tengu, fighting with other raccoon dogs, and playing with a psychic human girl, Yasaburou approaches the truth of his father's death. TRY-OUTS FOR UPCOMING WEEK ¤ Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka? / WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us? ¤ Summary: Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious 'Beasts'. The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts. Only a small group of young girls, the Fairies, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber. Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his 'Daughter' once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting. ¤ Tsuki ga Kirei ¤ Summary: Kotarou Azumi and Akane Mizuno became third year students at junior high school and are classmates for the first time. These two, along with fellow classmates, Chinatsu Nishio and Takumi Hira, relate to their peers through mutual understandings and feelings. As their final year at junior high school progresses, the group overcome their challenges to mature and become aware of changes in themselves. ¤ Clione no Akari ¤ Finally! This is one I've really been looking forward to, even though it seems to be getting bad ratings, I don't really care until I've seen something for myself. And honestly, a lot of people are saying Attack on Titan is overrated, well, I never let that stop me either. Summary: The story centers around an illness-stricken, constantly bullied orphan girl named Minori. After one rainy day, she doesn't turn up at school, having been admitted into a hospital in a distant town. Two months pass, and the girl's two school friends, Takashi and Kyōko, receive a mysterious email with no sender listed. The email reveals a summer festival taking place at a nearby town .... SIDE-NOTE: Sagrada Reset won't finish until September, so I'm gonna wait with that one. Once again, let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the taglist. RECOMMENDATIONS:
