2016 in music was a year with a strangely high number of prominent musicians dying (David Bowie, Prince, and Leonard Cohen in the same year?!) and also a year with some fun new trends in Top 40 radio. The easiest way to identify sweeping trends in the music world is to look at pop music, […]


You know the drill by now. HONORABLE MENTION: Number 11 through 15 on my top ten list, in alphabetical order. These albums are given the same full review as the top ten (coming soon!). Album links will open in Spotify. If you don’t have it yet, go get it! WORTH NOTICING: A list of albums worth checking […]

Fortunately, I was still able to find places online to listen to most albums that I was curious about. The public library has also become my friend. Unfortunately, that means I won’t have […]


I have been having in-excess much festivity with thesaurus.com and the fruition may be an entry that is strenuous to read. A few 24 hour periods ago, CK gave us Fatal Omissions. In just a moment, I will unveil my Deathly Noninclusions for 2010 in music. Below you will find the following categories: Song of […]


A new series in which CK and Tk present album reviews that will take (depending upon your kindergarten teacher, guardian figures, genetic code, and personal history with words) about 20 seconds to read.
