"Adele - Live 2016, Glasgow SSE Hydro 03" by marcen27 / CC BY 2.0

All in all, fans had sky-high expectations for “30,” and Adele delivered; she appeased listeners with more classic-sounding tracks while also successfully stepping out of the typical powerful ballad that characterized her past hits. However, because she refused to entirely keep within her original formula, I don’t expect “30” to be as much of a hit as “21” or “25.”

Astroworld: When do we hold artists accountable?

“While we can remember that these celebrities are humans — they can make mistakes — we must also realize that they are humans with significant influence. When an idol consistently encourages reckless behavior, what they’re saying to fans is, ‘Hey, this is okay.’”

Conan Gray’s ‘Telepath’: why less is more

“Telepath” is an amalgamation of old and new. While the track is nostalgic, reminiscent of ’80s disco music, the lyrics detail the ever-so-relatable experience of a dying relationship.

What ‘The Chair’ gets right about women of color in academia

While “The Chair” does sufficiently trace the professional and personal struggles of being a woman of color in academia, it fails to represent modern experiences students and professors may have.

Combining piano and tap dance, Tao, Teicher stun and reinvent at Richardson Hall

This is the kind of music that overturns what you thought you knew about everything you’ve heard before. It makes you, sitting up on stage with the performers, think, “Jesus, what have I been listening to for my entire life?”

How (and why) Minecraft YouTube raised hundreds of thousands for cancer research

As someone who has (thankfully) never had to experience the anguish of having a loved one suffer through cancer, I foolishly thought it wasn’t something that affected me. Since then, I’ve taken time to educate myself on sarcoma, which, due to its rarity, has had relatively less research.

‘Solar Power’: predictable to a fault

Lorde released her third studio album “Solar Power” on Aug. 20. “Solar Power” is a marked shift from the musical identity Lorde has cultivated among her following with her critically-acclaimed albums “Pure Heroine” (2013) and “Melodrama” (2017).
