this album is truly ambitious. it tried to get into everything and anything. the only reason i'm surprised is that it did everything perfectly. icarus falls is THE album of 2018 and we all know it.

is zayn spamming the site
I have to say my expectations were quite low but WOW! I mean no expectations could have prepared me for this. Holy crap!

Just kidding I didn’t listen.

Was hesitated to listen because I couldn’t imagine a 27 track album being anything but a disaster but was pleasantly surprised. This might be the best album released this year

This is the last time I listen to an hour and a half of mainstream R&B streambait just cause a boy on tinder told me to.

(i’m making him listen to Aviary as reciprocation)

Maybe it's long...
But who cares if it's this good. And it has Zayn's melodious voice.
I think it has -ve reviews cuz it's very much different from last album.
Zayn is ahead of his time. His voice is one of the best at this time.
The songs carry a feeling.
This album is mature with grt lyrics, amaZAYN music and out of world Vocals.

I, a true Zayn Malik fan, realize the true genius of Icarus Falls and since I'm serious, here's my two cents on this orgasmically beautiful masterpiece.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Icarus Falls. The CONCEPT is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of the 69 PRINCIPLES OF MUSIC COMPOSITION most of the INTELLECTUALITY will go over a typical AOTY user's head. There's also Zayn's ORGASMIC MUSICAL CAPACITY, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his ... read more

A 27 track album...

4 songs in and i have now decided i ain't doing this.

EDIT: the 0 is to outweigh this ridiciolus ammount of fake accounts giving this a 100.

Yeah, this is awful. The composition is laughably horrendous (even by modern pop standards), the production is irritatingly bland, and it's a hour and a half long. Probably the worst pop album I have heard all year.

I never expected an album with 27 tracks to be so good, it has 2-3 songs that are over but for such a long album that's good. A little better than his debut.

AMAZING. WONDERFUL. HIS VOICE, THE LYRICS. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR

Soorrrrry but I refuse to listen to this.

EDIT: DEAR STANS, STOP MAKING ACCOUNTS JUST TO RATE YOUR FAVORITE ALBUM 100. THAT'S NOT THE POINT OF THIS FUCKING WEBSITE. FANGIRL ABOUT IT ON TWITTER OR SOMETHING FOR ALL I CARE. rating this 0 bcuz fuck bots and fuck stans.

A perfect pop/Rnb album.

Even though the album is long, the versatility and the blend of genres is impressive. Zayn impressed me big time with this album. His first album was good although some fillers but this one is without a skip and that's a big thing for such a long album. Common, Satisfaction, Talk To Me, Scripted, Insomnia and Entertainer are some of the standouts. However, Imo it's not for everyone particularly for audience who enjoy upbeat bangers and generic radio hits, the album might come off as boring to ... read more

Boys: Kanye West vs Drake
Real Men: AOTY community vs Zayn bots

Don't let the 69 100/100s fool you. If you're here to actually talk about this album and be open-minded, then be ready for these Zayn bots to come trash your review for no reason.

Here's my honest opinion: This is laughably bad. It's so pandering, boring and tries so hard to be trendy, yet it fails to even make generic mainstream pop sound listenable.

One of the least impressionable acts of 2018.

'That said. These guys have been my favorite reviewers on the site this year:

-GoldenChords
-siberianbreaks
-chimecha
-EMR
-daFigz
-tha138

I try to scavenge for new and interesting music when I can, but it's easy to fall back into pop routines, so big thanks for sharing your finds throughout the year. It is genuinely appreciated.

Zayn is my favorite artist and the only artist I listen to because he totally doesn't sound like every other artist on the radio. How? It's truly ambitious because it copies all the trends that radio pop and R&B artists use like falsetto hooks, millennial whoops, collaborations from other artists, Chainsmokers-esque production and autotune. It totally doesn't sound like any other artist out there. Every song sounds very unique from the last and addresses a variety of deep topics like love, ... read more

first experience crying my fucking eyes out to music. I really wish famous prophets could be a couple minutes shorter so this could be an 100.

edit: lol what am I saying the last few minutes of famous prophets are the best thing ever.
