English review

1 A.M. is a female artist representing Gilroy city in Santa Clara county. She has already released 16 projects, including the hereby album. You can find out more about her on, while if you want to read a review of one of her previous projects, check out the article about "Invisible" on our website.

"Window" is made of 7 songs, which is rather a standard number of tracks nowadays; however imo if the project includes fewer than 10 titles than you'll probably feel insufficiency. Well, the rule does apply here, because the album lasts only little over 20 minutes. It definitely could've been longer, because 1 A.M. has a really pleasing flow. She has a warm and soft voice, with an audible hip-hop tone in it. Sometimes her lines are intertwined with singing, which mostly comes out nice. On "Window" you'll hear peaceful and laidback tracks with distinct hip-hop melodies that appear for instance on songs like "Time Zone" or "Story Of My Life". 1 A.M.'s lyrics are also soaked with metaphors and poetry, which is unusual for typical, modern rap. The artist speaks about hard life (that "little" had to suffice), parents' mistakes, searching and finding oneself, positive thoughts (and those darker too) and people's opinions. Listening to "Window" is quite pleasing, I must admit; I'm just too old for that street braggadocio stuff, so I appreciate more mature lyrics. Production on the album is decent, but after several spins it may feel samey, sometimes even monotonous. I'd add a more vivid and distinct sample here and there. Nevertheless the album is a nice piece of work, plus it is also surprising that an underground, local emcee releases her project also in a pressed version, which you can purchase on her official website. A digital edition is available on iTunes.

Props to Reckless for sending out a CD for review purposes.

Polish review

1 A.M. to artystka reprezentująca małą mieścinę w hrabstwie Santa Clara o nazwie Gilroy. Dziewczyna ma na swoim koncie już sporą liczbę projektów, bo - włącznie z tym tutaj - wydała ich aż 16. Więcej o niej samej możecie przeczytać na stronie, natomiast u nas znajdziecie recenzję jednej z jej poprzednich płyt pt. "Invisible".

"Window" zawiera zestaw 7 utworów, co na obecne czasy jest raczej standardem; jak dla mnie jednak projekt z liczbą piosenek mniejszą niż 10 oznacza zazwyczaj niedosyt. Nie inaczej jest w przypadku niniejszego krążka, który trwa tylko nieco ponad 20 minut; a szkoda, bo 1 A.M. ma naprawdę przyjemny flow. Raperka posiada ciepłą, miękką barwę głosu oraz narrację z hip-hopową nutą. Czasem tylko jej wersy przeplatane są śpiewem, który zazwyczaj wypada bardzo dobrze. Na "Window" usłyszycie spokojne, stonowane kawałki, z wyraźną domieszką hip-hopowych tonacji, przebijających się w "Time Zone" oraz "Story Of My Life". Również teksty 1 A.M. są mocno przesiąknięte metaforami i poezją, co raczej jest rzadkością w typowym, modernistycznym rapie. Artystka opowiada o ciężkim życiu (o tym, że "mało" musiało zawsze wystarczyć), o błędach rodziców, o poszukiwaniu i odnajdywaniu siebie, o pozytywnych (i tych ciemnych) myślach czy o opiniach ludzi. Przyznaję, dobrze się tego słucha; ja już jestem za stary na uliczne, durnowate przechwałki, więc cenię sobie dojrzalsze liryki. Muzyka na "Window" jest porządna, choć po kilku przesłuchaniach, mam wrażenie, że wpada w rutynę i drobną monotonię; dorzuciłbym tu i tam nieco sampli, barwniejszych i bardziej wyrazistych dźwięków. Niesamowite też jest to, że - bądź co bądź podziemna artystka - wydaje projekt również w tłoczonej wersji, którą możecie kupić na oficjalnej stronie; cyfrówka dostępna jest również na iTunesach.

Podziękowania dla Recklessa za podesłanie krążka do recenzji.

I was depressed some Months ago due to how frustrating it is dealing with bad credits, but reaching out to HACK VANISH via Phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and Email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM gave my life a new meaning, after I found him credible through positive reviews I read on a credit blog, in a twinkle of an eye, this great hacker got my credit score restored from 509 to 784 across the 3 major credit bureaus, all evictions and repossession has been wiped off, my LexisNexis and Chex system fixed respectively, to my greatest surprise, some days later, I received an E-mail confirming the approval of my pending loan application. I can confidently say 2021 was an exceptional year for my husband and I as we are proud owners of a new home and a brand-new SUV courtesy HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.

It's good to take risk sometimes. I've realized that people who do great exploits are people who take risk. Nothing good comes or happens easily.

I wish I can say everything here which is not possible but all I know is that he can be trusted
