I came across a video of a Youtuber known as Drew Monson. In that particular video, he was showing viewers around his apartment, and he showed a few albums for his record player, and one of them was The Millennium - Begin. I must say that the first thing that got my attention was the design of the cover album. I just think the simplicity of the design is so interesting that I immediately searched for the album in Youtube.

I found the full album online, I don't particularly agree on people who monetize videos that they uploaded on Youtube knowing very well that they didn't contribute in the making of that album. You want to upload the full album because you think the music is great, technically not so right but I'm fine with that, and you give credit to the people involved, that's amazing, but don't monetize the video and make money out of content that you didn't create. That's just a tad selfish in my opinion. I got a little off track, sorry about that, getting back to the topic, despite what I felt about the monetization, I am actually grateful that Drew Monson introduced me to this album, because I think that album is of great quality, it is a psychedelic pop album. It was, in a way, ahead of its time, this album came out in 1968, but a lot of the styles are either still relevant to this day, or just on a different level.
The very first track, Anthem, sounded like current music, with the beat and the repetitive motiff reminds me of today's hip hop music, and at times with a hint of Danny Elfman's style for Tim Burton. I knew from that moment that this album will be special. The album itself has different styles, some sounded like it was in its time, and others just sound like current music. It is an album of great music and styles. It is nearly 50 minutes long with two bonus tracks making 16 tracks altogether in the album. I enjoyed all of the music, but then again, I guess I'm a person with an old soul. I enjoy this kind of music. However, if you are open to any kind of music, and would love to experience something new, then I would recommend this album to you.
That is all from me so far, have a good day/night and peace out~
