That's just chili, my dude. It's just that you can't tell 'till later games because this game does barley even have not graphics.

I have to say that I personally thought this album was pretty decent. Just a nice album through and through. Nothing special, but it also never got flat for what it is I'd say. And it still has its moments just like any other album would. And just like the seemingly vast majority of others who have heard it, I loved the first track of the album "Enter Sandman". I honestly don't have much to say about it honestly. Even when it comes to complaints which I only have one: there isn't a great amount of variety. I feel like Metallica took all of their "calm tracks" points, and spent them all on this album, if that makes sense. It creates a general theme to the album and such, but there's not many differing sounds. Themes in tracks are as ranged as ever, but tone is very similar for all. But like I said, It's pretty decent and a nice addition to the Metallica library. I also by the end of listening to it, felt like it didn't overstay its welcome. It ended at a nice place. Props.
Cardboard Castles is one of the worst albums I've heard all year. From the mind of Watsky, a white rapper. Which, obviously isn't inherently bad; but the awful lyrics littered across the album come off as pretentious and whiney, which doesn't help out with the archetype that white rappers already have found themselves labeled under. Of all of the points that I get across with this album, I can't stress enough how atrocious these lyrics are. I mean, it seems that when Watsky FINALLY runs out of some assumptuous and ironically shallow things to say in a track for a second, I guess he decides to randomly spit out random shit for the sake of keeping the rhyme going. Usually being some unrelated sci-fi reference or a popular character name drop for whatever fucking reason. I just got the feeling that Watsky had something to prove while listening to the whole album what with all of the seemingly angry songwriting. Sure he rapped impressively almost like a talent, but when half of those lyrics don't mean a single thing, is it really being put to good use? Speaking of the whole album, wow. It uhhh... Really drags on doesn't it? Of all of the badly reviewed albums I've heard so far, I've never wanted one to end as badly as I did this one. The second half of the album felt like an endurance test. For the first time with an album listening, I got BORED. But, I had the optimistic idea that maybe it picks up in the tail-end of the album. I was wrong. Just as monotonous as everything else. There were some small things I liked the idea of about this album, but for the sake of review length, I'd say they're too small to mention verbally. But, they are enough to earn the album a star. 2/5
So these are my top 10 favorite video games of all time. Keep in mind that this isn't a review so I didn't order them in how objectively good I think they are as video games, but rather how much fun I personally have playing them. I also went under the thought process of the "If I were stuck on an island with only 10 games" angle. I'm really worried that there are games that I forgot, and didn't end up on this list even though I would've put them on. But for now, this seems to be it. Also, sorry for the bad visuals. I didn't want to make the format the same as my reviews, but this seems to be a one-time thing. If this format comes back, it'll probably be more streamlined.
The sound this album has, is just wow. So full and clean as well. The sound is smooth and can grow to be powerful when it wants to be. The iconic Danny Avidan layered vocals really compliments this full sound as well. If you're unaware what that is, basically it's when a vocalist sings the same part of a song multiple times, (the same way, or differently) and layer the recordings on top of each other. There's so many instruments being used, you probably would have to listen to the album more than once to really notice them all. And even so, I never felt that any of the rather odd mixtures of instruments ever felt out of place or were bad together. The lyrics aren't that bad either. The album's lyrics are a very contemplative and understanding tone overall, reflecting the serene sounds of the instrumentals. So with this harmonious wonderland with the vocals, and the instrumentals, and the lyrics, and the Pokë, and the Mans, does the album even DO anything wrong??? Well, this album has absolutely no variety whatsoever. Tracks are distinct, but the tone of the album never changes from track to track ever. The most you'll get is the lyrics changing the theme of the song. But instrumentals never truly change tone. It's really disappointing. Like there's so much you could do with all of these instruments, and yet only one sound was produced for 10 tracks. But hey, other than this rather large problem, the album is by no means bad. I'd say check this one out if you are interested in hearing something cool. 3/5 decent
It's been a pretty okayish 2nd week of school. But it feels very.... "Schooly". I see my schedule as extreme. As in the good classes are just amazing, but the bad classes are awful. It's a balance, but an intense and tiring one. School is just not a great place for me I guess. I hang out with my friends, but we're restricted to not be too wild. And then there's the ever looming thought of grades and stuff always at the back of my mind. It's been a long time since I've had absolutely nothing to worry about, so I'm kinda secretly always stressed.
