EDIT: SHAWN CEE CALLED THIS WEBSITE A CESSPOOL LETS GOOOO

Phew… this is my fourth attempt at this. I can now say with certainty that this album is one of the year’s most polarizing albums. Yes, I’ve rewritten this review 4 times now; first time was a meme review, second was a half-assed review I wrote at 3 AM, third was what I thought would be my final statement of the album where I gave it a 50… well, you all know how that went since we are now here. Listen, if you ... read more

Edit: I was wrong, and so were you. Top 10 rap albums of the year. Idk, my mental illness has crippled my ability to criticise a body of work. Thank your Sir Carter for this project. Man sampled chains clinking, he sampled Bon Iver and Bach. Thanks for that, yeezy. Also some of his hardest and funniest bars to date are on here, on god. My most unpopular opinion to date.

Half of the hate that's being garnered for this album is just irrational. People are acting like Die Lit was a lyrical ... read more

Hey, this might still be a bad opinion, but did Shawn Cee say that you get no pussy? Yeah, didn't think so.

It seems like a lot of people are relistening to this and are enjoying it more afterwards. I decided to do this but only felt pain. My overall enjoyment has stayed the same, and the music quality itself is still bad to me. I understand the appeal now. But the album just doesn't cater to my tastes, and I've learned to accept that. Anyways, the review still holds up my opinions, so I ... read more

Why do we got an A-B-C-D-E-F-G type beat on Alfred's Theme.

"Sucker for Pain I'm stuck in this radioactive pattern. Her by her motherfucking hair is all I Imagine... Dragons!"
"At the crib playing Fortnite with your Grandma"
"Call me Santa Clause because at the present I out rap them all"
"Hand Sani... I'm cutting off ties"

I DIDNT BUY INTO THE HYPE!!!!! I ACTUALLY LIKE THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!

I see a lot of similarities with Gunna's album - Wunna. It's something you have to turn off your brain to enjoy. Whereas Wunna was chill and psychedelic, this is incredibly hard, jarring, and hype. While Wunna was the perfect album when u chilling, vibing, or high, this is the perfect album to listen to when in a happy mood or in the car. I adore albums that are perfect for a certain situation, even when they might not be the ... read more

Firstly, as an introduction, I wanted to express my grief and give some appreciation for MF DOOM, before jumping onto the review of the actual album. MF DOOM was one of the most beloved and important rappers of all time, personally my favorite and has shaped up my music taste to be what it is today, this record and "Madvillainy" in particular have sparked my interest and passion for music as an art form as a whole and have led me to discover so many other incredible LPs. I'm still ... read more

In honor of the rapper MF DOOM, I will be reviewing this legendary classic in hip hop. Rest in Peace Daniel Dumile. Rest easy legend, fly high. <3

"Madvillainy" is an album that I've been delaying an review for quite a while, and why's that? Because this album is a work of art that merits the most extreme regard and love it deserves. I can't really put into words on how exceptional this album is. The duo group, "Madvillain", contains 2 artists of the likes of MF DOOM and ... read more

UPDATE: So, Shawn Cee called me out for this “joke” review? All I gotta say is... ladies and gentlemen, we got ‘em.

This has got to be my new favorite comedy rap album.

Playboi Carti pulls an entire 180 from his debut album "Die Lit" to create one of the best troll albums of all time with his highly-anticipated "Whole Lotta Red". Ever since this record was announced right after his debut, the rap community has been full of so much hype that it's palpable. ... read more

Simply put, MF DOOM is the greatest rapper of all time. Kanye may be my personal favorite, but MF DOOM was the best. Very few rappers possess the same sense of humor, level of wit, and originality that DOOM possessed during his lifetime. Being as enigmatic as he was, not much was known about MF DOOM prior to him taking up his villainous name. After he founded the group KMD with his younger brother in 1988, whose passing in 1993 broke the group up, DOOM went on to become homeless from the year ... read more

This already seems to be a rather polarizing album but it was only set to be one with all the controversy and delay surrounding its release. Playboi Carti is someone who I was not too fond of at first, as when I gave his self-titled and "Die Lit" albums a chance I didn't like either and only learned to appreciate those records after a handful of listens. With this new release over here, the highly anticipated "Whole Lotta Red", you could easily say it does not live up to the ... read more

unlike my other MF DOOM reviews this one will not start with a joke and i will not be my normal self here. (score bumped 90 to 97)

MF DOOM is one of the most unique and entertaining rappers to bless this world. His debut is one of the best debuts that I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Sure, it’s 19 songs but DOOM keeps you entertained for all of them. He tells a story, he makes you laugh, he leaves you with an album that satisfies you. MF DOOM has been a staple in my childhood and ... read more

Despite not venturing too far away from the typical post-punk formula and definitely being a bit inspired by their contemporaries, Drunk Tank Pink is a great maturation for Shame, a band I previously saw to be a humdrum display of generic post-punk finally coming into their own.

Shame’s debut album, Songs of Praise, was an album that many loved, though I merely thought it was an average post-punk record. The album did very little to stick out in a sea of post-punk albums that already ... read more

EDIT THREE THIS IS AN AUTO 0 BECAUSE DADDY FANTANO GAVE IT A 3

Edit Two - I can’t stop listening to this ‘corny’ ass shit.

Well, here we go again. 2020 is truly over, Eminem has dropped...a decent album? [Edit - Each listen gets better!]

Eminem heard us crying about how his projects were way too long, had shitty production and didn’t stay on topic. Did he...listen to us? His production has improved drastically, and he seems to be staying on the topic of Alfred ... read more

It was 2018 when Viagra Boys first saw prominence within the post-punk scene, garnering love from critics and fans alike due to their unique jazz-tinged post-punk sound. Across ‘Welfare Jazz’s’ predecessor, ‘Street Worms’, the band ridiculed many negative virtues that plague modern society such as addiction, fetishes, not having a care in the world about your future, and materialism just to name a select few. Jumping from topic to topic one song after another, they ... read more

Whole Lotta Red has everything to sound like a potential significant act that could turn Hip Hop upside down, maybe even more than Playboi Carti has achieved so far. A creative and fun experience that hasn't finished pushing the limits of the possible. It's simply a joy for the listener looking for new thrills. Just like Whole Lotta Red, it is not a late review, it is a timely review.

It arrived like a gift under the Christmas tree, one thing about Whole Lotta Red has been much talked about, ... read more

#3 of my Top 50 Albums of 2020: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/chode/list/29961/chodes-top-50-albums-of-2020/

Intricately barebones with its compositions, ethereal with its vocals, potent with its poetry; Phoebe Bridger’s Punishers stands tall as one of 2020’s best behemoths. Actually, behemoth may be the wrong word to describe this album. It’s more like a... phantom. Something that may seem weak at first, but holds a lot of inner strength. If you don’t like this ... read more

[PREREVIEW]

Happy new year everybody!

I'd like to forget all the bullshit that happened in 2020, particularly yesterday, and take this new year as a tool to start off fresh and revaluate some of the ideals I've been working with until now, down below are some small announcements and a token of appreciation for everybody who followed me at the bottom:

Firstly, I'd like to start with the least important decision I had to make, that being that I'll no longer be reviewing singles. This was an ... read more

EDIT 3: slay3r is my favourite song right now.

EDIT 2: finally spending time with your son. Also, this albums keeps growing on you. I love this punk shit.

EDIT: Carti, please. Say sorry to Iggy and make up for being a piece of shit to her and your kid.

Merry Cartimas everyone!

I’m going to be real: this is the first record in a good long while that has made me burst into tears. Let me try and explain.

For months now, I've been on the edge of my seat waiting for one particular album this December to drop. Some have written this year off already, culminating their end of the year lists, but for me? There was a noise rock record that I knew in the back of my mind, with no bias, would probably be one of my favorite records of the year. I was shaking my leg in ... read more

At the age of 78, the legendary Paul McCartney did not hide his ambition on his 3rd eponymous album, on the contrary it allowed him to create a captivating and particularly seductive work. McCartney III features a tempting and clear-sighted instrumentation backed up by striking writing that shows just how great a writer/composer Paul still is.

As a sign of destiny Paul McCartney is an album worked in isolation and solitude during a year 2020 that will be definitely marked by that, 50 years ... read more

WHOLE LOTTA WAITING, WHOLE LOTTA PAIN, WHOLE LOTTA DREAD, HERE IS wh0L3 LoTT4 R3D!*

Overall I enjoyed the album a lot. Lots of highlights for me. The only tracks I dont really enjoy are BENO and Slay3r. Beno just came off as an @MEH remix and slay3r just felt deflated.

The rough mix of the album I believe was intentional, carti seems highly influenced by black metal culture (if you look at the merch), who are known for their lofi production quality. The punk aesthetics of this album are gonna ... read more

It's been a year since I launched my AOTY adventures! I wanted to thank all the people who supported me throughout this year, all those who believed in me from the beginning and also those with whom I exchange to discuss music. I'm really happy to be able to share my passion with others and to have the chance to express myself. Thank you very much. Not to forget anyone: Love @everyone.

#22 of my Top 50 Albums of 2020: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/chode/list/29961/chodes-top-50-albums-of-2020/

Avenade makes a better Deftones album than Deftones have ever made.

For a while, I haven't all too keen on Album of the Year user-made albums. A lot of them are a bit too amateur and wear their influences too hard for me to fall in love with them. While I have enjoyed a few of these user-created albums, I hadn't truly LOVED any….

That was until I discovered ... read more
