a top debut ever by Lil Nas X
emo-rockers goes hip hop
a mini Punk Rock Bowling
The Viking warrior of Rock-n-Roll, Norwegian born superstar Rocky Kramer holds the very soul of music in his heart.
Rockstar Review: Steven P. Hamm
a lame 94K EAUs
sounds like Paul McCartney’s early 70s be bopping vibe as covered by the Meters
distinct and wondrous without being obvious or obnoxious
except for the title track the songs are on vacation
simultaneously self-effacing and egomaniacs
