    2021, so far I have listened to over 1000 hours of music, and shocker to me it has not been 100% metalcore! This is almost all thanks to Sam and Marcos, never did I think I'd like or even be excited to listen to emo-rap but call me Waldo and find me because I do now! Thanks for the incredible suggestions and takes on all the music. Two years into listening and I am still finding new bands I love, which is why I keep coming back every week!

  • Keep up the good work!

    Great content. Enjoyed the chosen music to review and their opinions. One critique - the excessive use of the word “like” wore me out after awhile but if you can get past it they share quality reviews with great insight!
