There is no way the critics all somehow rated this that high, it's not the worst album in the world but it is nowhere near 93 overall.

Some said that if this album were released by Fiona Apple it would be 80+ among users. BUT Fiona will never write such stupid lyrics and primitive melodies lol.

Idk but the opening tracks beat IS SO SEXY IDC

why is this a must hear album with a 60 user score. I get the critic score is high but shouldn't must hears be based on what the website says not critics.

Dear future users, if you're reading this...
those first two albums on the critic score list don't represent the great music that 2021 had to offer. If you want that, check the user's list.
Thank you.

Holy crap this album is so awful are my ears broken???? What is going on with that score??

If you’re gonna pay critics for a 100 at least make it subtle
3w
Oh, this is actually my album of the year πŸ€”

This got a must hear mark, I guess critics are not the only one who gets crazy over this. Anyway, You Forever bangs.

critics chill out

who's this girl and why does she have so much money to pay the payola?
1mo
Critics were definitely paid
1mo
No one:

Britain: It's a 100!!!
1mo
Hey guys, guess what? You don't have to be creative or original to be good
1mo
how much you wanna bet those critics were paid to give this a 100
1mo
yall are mad cause a british woman is dressed as a cowgirl on an album cover!
1mo
this only has a low grade because it is by an unknown artist, if it was released by apple fiona the user rating would be +80, its sad how community of aoty works
1mo
wait a minute hold on whats going on here
1mo
Odd and good album, still questionable critic score.
1mo
To offset all the hate, this is probably two or three days away from being my most listened album all year. Probably not my favorite but easy top ten.
1mo
This score difference is giving for those I love
1mo
i keep coming back to the title track but the rest i find hard to even finish listening
1mo
for those i love 2
1mo
The grooves on this thing are so good
1mo
Evil elton john be like track 11
1mo
This is already one of the oddest album pages on the entire site.
1mo
no fucking way all these publications genuinely calling this a 10/10
1mo
what the fuck is the user/critic divide lmfao
1mo
There's no way these critics aren't being payed, insane
1mo
HOT TAKE: The critics are bonkers. Prioritise Pleasure is miles away from an 80+ score, let alone a 93. This album took some of the worst parts of generic pop music and implemented them all with substandard execution. The vocals are iffy, the lyrics are shallow, and the production is absolutely horrendous at times.
1mo
critics stop giving 100s to mid albums challenge
1mo
71? wtf is wrong with you people
1mo
omg so in love
1mo
Wtf is this user score, you all crazy
1mo
Critics W

Not my favourite album this year, but happy to see it be critic's top choice right now.
1mo

John Elton

1mo
okAY THE TITLE TRACK IS ACTUALLY GOOD SABFSJADKBGJSDAG HOLYIANA
1mo

1mo
The 14 critic reviews and 1 user review is sending
1mo
For those I love dethrones again, let’s see how long it lasts
1mo
another 100 you all
1mo
Funniest "best artwork"-tag all year
1mo
what is this
1mo
no shade but who is this
1mo
ok just listened to her debut album….. it was definitely an album!
1mo
why the hell is this so high?
1mo
who thinks this is best artwork?
1mo
The critics love it, it must be awful
1mo
oh who
1mo
who is this?
1mo
Nine "100" scores omg this is huge
1mo
wad is dis
1mo
94??
1mo
I listened to the singles yesterday for the first time and didn’t get any of them entirely. Like pleasant and stuff….. but, then today I hop in the bath and an hour 20 minutes later I’ve listened to all these songs a number of times and they all 4 seem like top tier songs this year for me. I’d say maybe all top 100, the moody hook went from slightly annoying to just phenomenal for me.
1mo
Been reading the reviews (because I'm adding the blurbs) and they literally look all the same with few variations. Like, I've seen the 'feminist manifesto' and 'pop perfection' wayyyyy too many times from different reviews.
1mo
mfs be rating an album that hasn't come out yet πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
1mo
I doubt I'll like this as much as the critics, even though I've liked some of the singles, I'm just happy pop music is going in so many different directions right now.
1mo
WEIRD 8 100's and NME gave it 80 πŸ€”
1mo
yeah the singles were good but like nowhere near groundbreaking
1mo
can someone just pay me???
1mo
so is she paying??
1mo
A band called "Self Esteem" paying critics to give a perfect score? A bit ironic innit?
1mo
all these 100s and no nme 100 is very funny
1mo
lol this gonna be must hear before it dropped
1mo
i guess nme didn't get paid enough
1mo
Another 100 score? Also lmao NME 80
1mo
Not another 100 score, I can smell 100 from NME
1mo
i think it’s mostly the feminist theme in this album that makes critics loved it
1mo
Ratings of singles out so far:

Prioritize Pleasure: 1/5

@jkpyg - I'm going out on a limb here and saying you never saw Bowie in concert. Or, did you?
1mo
Will not be taking any Self Esteem hate. Best live performer I’ve ever seen and these singles have all been perfect.
1mo
critics this year blindly assigning numbers to albums...
1mo
I mostly liked the singles, but this critic score is baffling.
1mo
I do this all the time single cover is so damn fuckng good but this just horrible
1mo
ugly ass cover why does it have to be in a white background
1mo
the singles are intriguing to say the least, but the critic score kinda questionable
1mo
Take that For Those I Love
1mo
critics only liked it bc of sexy album cover
1mo
If NME gives this a 100 I’m killing myself
1mo
Yo, how is this the critics' AOTY already? Us plebs haven't checked it out yet.
1mo
Cmon this sounds awful
1mo
don't like the cover but the tracks are pretty good
1mo
how can i help you production sounds exactly like black skinhead
1mo
and it just got another 100 holy shit man
1mo
literally title track feels like what’s your pleasure and yeezus had a baby
1mo
YOOOOOO NUMBER 1
1mo
The title track on this is beyond insanely good
2mo
this is going to be aoty!!!! listen to the singles, seriously. Best british live performer at the moment too. so criminally underrated!
