Welcome to The Music Hole!

Hey everybody! My name is Cole and I've been researching music, movies, and video games ever since I was 18. I try my best to find albums, movies, and video games that personally blow me away. It's been my experience that only a few releases per year stand out in that kind of way to me. Just a quick but important note that music-wise I'm essentially only focusing on Western releases, and that I'm not particularly interested in pop, R&B, jazz, reggae, classical, or country music (although I do have some albums and singles from these genres here and there). To date I've checked out over 47,000 albums and over 2,200 films. You can find my film and video game sections at the bottom of this page as well as the albums I consider to be "flawed gems". New content that has been added to this website, as well as any updated ratings, will be reported in the following link:

Helpful notes:

1. Albums with 3 STARS are 10/10 "S-Tier" masterpieces which means that they really wowed me and are basically flawless. Albums with 2 STARS are my 9/10 "Honorable Mentions" which means that even though I think they're masterpieces they do have some minor debatable flaws. Albums with 1 STAR are my 8/10 "Minor Gems" which means that they are very good and are almost masterpieces. The rest are 6s or 7s which means that they're decent (6) or good (7), but not masterpieces. 6/10s will say "6/10" above the album art. I would definitely recommend listening to my STARRED albums first. 
2. When an artist's name is BOLDED that means they have at least one 3 STAR album.
3. "*****" next to an artist's name means they have at least one 1 STAR album (or 2 STARS).
4. Songs with a music video have an "*" next to it and clicking the song title will take you there.
5. Songs that stood out to me as great starting points will be BOLDED on an album's track-list. Basically these are catchy songs with excellent hooks and melodies (IGNORE THIS ONE. I GAVE UP ON IT lol).
