J-Music Exchange/Rate

The JMusic Exchange/Rate is an album review series that myself and my good friend Al over at Omunibasu, wherein each month we trade each other Japanese music albums for the other to listen to and review on their respective blogs (hence “exchange/rate”… what do you mean it’s not funny when you explain the jok-)

The project was Al’s brainchild from a couple of years back, and while it did take us a while (lol) to actually make it a thing, we have managed to do these every month ever since we started it back up.

Here I’ll be housing links to said reviews from both me and Al.
do note that the links to Al’s reviews will take you over to Omunibasu
