Music Reviews

Doing reviews for albums or songs is not my strong point. Everything i do or say comes from my heart, not a technical, professional, expert, or learned perspective. But when sincerely asked to share how the music feels to me, i'll do my best to find the words.

Parallel Motion - "Illogical"

Published September 1, 2019

This is hitting me deeply. I know my story is illogical, but i know it's real, because i have the scars to remind me. This song puts words to how that feels, strengthened by the precise and hard-hitting sound that Parallel Motion excels at. The words echo my thoughts, even if they're not specific. Looking at the truth, searching for reasons, is an every day struggle, even if it's different every day. I know it may not be right but i'm staying here anyway, and i will get up when i'm ready. This would be a go-to song for all those times people try to make me feel crazy for the way i choose to see, to feel.
