I confess, I am a complete sucker for music and musicians with a fuck off attitude that also have a meaning behind it and what can be more fuck off than living in a totalitarian country and refuse to obey and do it “their way, even if it mean that they send you to a mental asylum or make you disappear. What could be more punk? Гражданская Оборона or Grazhdanskaya Oborona was formed in the Siberian city of Omsk by bandleader Yegor Letov.with the slogan “I will always be against”….

9/10 … A lovely weird album through and through. A work that is kind of hard to classify, Germanic nostalgic folk music, modern dark ambient on a bed of synthesizer romanticism. We get wonderfully romantic-melancholy English-language pieces, a sublime, proud French song, which is probably intended as a battle hymn, and the absolute climax, a moving interpretation of the Yiddish folk song “Dos Kelbl”, which was popular with Jews in the times of National Socialism and was meant to give strength against the tyranny of the nazis…

10/10 … So the time have come for the mighty Dissection to get the cassette tape treatment by Darkness Shall Rise, a label dedicated to releasing just that, tapes. If some people in the year of 2021 have a hard time understanding why people buy vinyl, then their heads would probably explode when they hear about the rise of new produced tapes. And I have to be honest, I buy all my music on vinyl, it sounds great, the artwork are big and they are beautiful on the shelf. I really don’t get why I would buy studioalbums on tape? I buy demo tapes, especially old ones from the 80’s and 90’s. But to each their own, some people probably love this format as much as I love vinyl…

6/10 … WOW, just fantastic … when it comes to the music. Atmospheric, distorted and melancholic. But this has to be the worst singers I have ever heard, and there are two of them. Is this a case where the two of them where thrown out of the same music school, got together and said “we’ll show them” and neither parents or friends had the heart to tell them the truth? The guy is slightly better than the girl, and holy crap is she bad, it feels like I’m dying inside when she opens her mouth. Is there an app or something so I can separate the music from the vocals? I’m being serious, because when it comes to the music, it’s so good, simply amazing. I would give this a 9/10 or 10/10 if they would have had the decency to shut up and it was released without vocals.

5/10 … and holy fuck did we need the #metoo movement in 1991, but we had to wait another 27 years for that to happen. Seriously what’s wrong with these men? The store clerk grabbing a womens ass, a psychoterapists who can’t open his mouth without spewing out some extreme sexual innuendos, a neighbour making sexual advances and blocking her way when she tries to leave. Cavemen, much?

8/10 … The album consists of three tracks, Paths Anew, Led By The Glowing River and Embrace The Wrath Of Wind. With the title track as a personal favorite. But all three tracks are awesome. I haven’t seen any lyrics thou, so I can’t speak of that at all, but the atmosphere throughout is killer, and I’ll will surely have it in my headphones the coming winter. If I would have to complain on something it might be that in some parts the drum sound isn’t really what I personally like…

7,5/10 … The show ties together several families and peoples destinies, and I like to follow them all. One of my favorite actor, Brandons (Jason Mitchell) adventure into the food business, the adolecent friends Kevin (Alex R. Hibbert), ‘Papa’ (Shamon Brown Jr.) and Jake (Michael Epps). The traumatized war veteran Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, or the obsessed-by-sneakers highly potent Emmett (Jacob Latimore) … the list goes on. It takes a smaller dive in the 3rd season when one of the main characters disappers from the show, but it kind of picks up when the main crime story through the hole season is introduced to the show…
