Royal Reviews: Album Review Rihanna ‘Anti’

February 8, 2016

Feb. 8, 2016 By Logan Peaslee Before reviewing Rihanna’s latest album, we have to address its seemingly endless rollout. I can’t recall an album campaign as confusing or drawn-out as this one. Aside from just being annoying, the lead up also created an audience with high expectations. And,...

Royal Reviews: Album Review Adele ’25’

December 9, 2015

It's been about four years since we have heard from Adele. Her last album, "21," came at a time when album sales were at an all time low. Not even records by Beyoncé could sell as well as earlier albums. But then Adele came. Her cross-generational appeal combined with being completely different from...

Royal Reviews: Album Review: Justin Bieber ‘Purpose’

Royal Reviews: Album Review: Justin Bieber ‘Purpose’

November 18, 2015

Justin Bieber’s comeback album, “Purpose,” is anticlimactic and unbearably repetitive. The album fails to fulfill the promise the preceding singles made. While “Where Are U Now,” “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry” suggested an album full of hits, “Purpose” leaves the listener...

Royal Reviews: Album Review ‘Revival’ by Selena Gomez

October 15, 2015

Royal Reviews: Album Review ‘Honeymoon’ Lana Del Ray

October 7, 2015

Review by Logan Peaslee Lana Del Rey has released her third album, “Honeymoon,” and proven that the third time’s not always the charm. “Honeymoon” can be summed up in one word—boring. The first and title track “Honeymoon” is the epitome of the album’s overall sound; it is listless,...

Royal Reviews: Music Review ‘Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz’

September 24, 2015

Immediately following her gig as the host of this year’s MTV Video and Music Awards, Miley Cyrus dropped a surprise, free album titled “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.” If an unexpected and completely free LP from one of the biggest names in music isn’t jarring enough, the album itself is sure...

Haute Hawks: Personal style creates a personal brand

October 15, 2014

Oct. 15, 2014 By Jordan Gittens If there is anything you should believe in more than anything else, it is personal style. Having personal style means having a fashion sense of your own and not just being a carbon copy of every other person on the street. Of course you can see people and think,“I...
