Bad Bunny - X 100PRE Music Album Reviews

The expertly sequenced and always vibrant debut from the Puerto Rican rapper collects every fascinating side of Bad Bunny into one singular statement.
In the first three years of his nascent career, Bad Bunny put out enough singles and did enough guest features to fill out several albums. As an audition for pop superstardom, it’s been impressive. He can adapt to seemingly any style—trap, R&B, reggaetón, bachata, dembow—with a heavy, nasal croon perpetually drenched in Auto-Tune. He became a huge star in 2018, circumventing terrestrial radio and government censorship to become the third-most streamed artist in the world on YouTube. Why does Bad Bunny even need to release an album?

Goose VPN Review

A solid, easy-to-use VPN providing access to streaming services such as Netflix US. Dedicated streaming and P2P servers make it ideal for content grabbers.

Should I buy Goose VPN?
A fast, very easy-to-use VPN aimed squarely at domestic users who want access to foreign media. With few options to set, and a very simple interface, this is a winner. 

Price When Reviewed
  • From $4.20 per month
After a simple installation, the interface to Goose VPN is remarkably simple. This is clearly a product aimed squarely at the home user, eager for content from afar, rather than the serious privacy buff. (Find out more about VPNs and their uses here).

Goose VPN offers a 30-day trial, and a no-quibble 30-day money back guarantee should you be unhappy. This usually applies to accounts that have used under 100GB in that period, but if you experience ongoing connection issues, they'll still issue a refund.

Payment can be made by credit and charge card, PayPal, Bitcoin, and GiroPay, along with lesser-known options for yearly plans. The most expensive plan the unlimited bandwidth 1-Month Plan, which comes in at £12.99. This drops to £4.99 with the unlimited 1-Year Plan. If you're just dipping your toe in the VPN water, you can get a 50GB 1-Month Plan for just £2.99/$4.17.


To engage the VPN, you simply flick the slide switch at the top of the interface. The subsequent connection is established via what Goose VPN considers the most appropriate server in your country of choice. Deselect the Smart Server List in the settings and you'll see a much more comprehensive server list, including hardware optimised for P2P traffic and media streaming.

When not connected to the VPN, a pop-up appears every 15 minutes to remind you that your traffic is not cloaked. Luckily, this feature can be disabled when it becomes irritating.

Select the US streaming server and access to shows we don't get in the UK is granted, including Netflix US and Comedy Central. Streaming servers are also provided for Germany, Holland, the UK and US, and dedicated P2P are available in many more countries.

GooseVPN is based in the Netherlands, which is inside the “14-eyes” group of countries. Though there is a strict no logging policy, in a typically pragmatic Dutch compromise, when presented with evidence of serious criminal activity by the authorities (terrorism, for example), Goose will log just that user's connections.

With 77 server locations in 27 countries (no mention of the total number of servers), Goose VPN is on the low side, but short connection time, connection quality, and success in accessing foreign media is nevertheless very good indeed. I had no connection refusals at all and almost no buffering. Usefully, you can also request a server if one isn't available in a desired location.

On the downside, there's currently no kill switch that will drop all connections should the VPN fail and leave you exposed, but this is slated for inclusion in a future release.

The platforms covered include Windows, Mac and iOS, and Linux, as well as routers, Android TV, and even KODI boxes. The Android version is even easier to use as the Windows version. Simply select your country and slide the switch to the right to begin surfing.

LG G8 ThinQ Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

What to expect from LG's next flagship phone and when - here's everything we know about the LG G8 ThinQ launch date, specifications and anticipated price.
In previous years LG has always favoured the MWC tradeshow for its flagship phone launch, which is traditionally held in late February/early March.
