NR - This isn’t a normal review. It’s also important since you’ll learn more about me.

So, this is not going to be one of my typical reviews. I haven’t listened to this new Sia project, and I don’t plan on it anytime soon. However, today, I will be discussing the absolute shit stain that is this situation with Sia, and how it personally affects me. (Also I use neurodiverse and neurotypical a lot in the review. Neurodiverse means people with mental disabilities, ... read more

FINAL EDIT: (85 -> 89) Life's good.
EDIT 2: (79 -> 85): Don't care anymore fuck you. One of the best trap projects OAT.
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 ... read more

When I heard the song "I Love You, I Hate You" earlier this year, I was blown away with the lyrical quality, and structure of the track, as well the unique integration of samples (most of which are not even samples wtf!? my life is a lie). Upon hearing that, I pretty much knew Simz was going to drop a pretty solid album, but seriously wtf?

This album is amazing, but in a brilliant and unique way that I've never heard before in a Hip Hop album. Front to back, this thing is a fucking ... read more

Stunning.

Breathtaking vocals, flawless production, and a wonderful tracklisting. This album turned me from a sceptic to a believer. I also have no doubt that this album will be huge, maybe even more than her last album. This is such a mature turn for Billie. I was not a fan of the fantasy, edgy stuff on her last project. I am a fan of nearly every single idea on this new one, down to the spoken word interlude of Not My Responsibility, to the most intense corners of this project. Billie is on ... read more

Depending on who you ask, you’ll get varying answers on what the quality of the current state of hip-hop is. Oldheads may argue that the genre is at an all-time low, but I’d beg to differ. The truth is, hip-hop’s not only alive and thriving, but also has never been better. Now more than ever, in the Internet age, hip-hop has a little bit of something for everyone. Trap rose to massive popularity throughout the 2010s thanks to artists such as Migos and Travis Scott, dizzying ... read more

Now that the botting has ended, I can now voice my actual opinions. Before I go into my thoughts on the album itself, I'm going to first talk about how useless botting this site really is.

Score doesn't matter. The most it does is puts it higher on the charts but what you're really doing is delegitimizing the site.

Your favorite artists approval, is not something you're getting with this. At this point, you're only pleasing yourself and your other friends only.

You are hurting the site. As I ... read more

R.I.P. Sophie Xeon.

Usually I don’t speak on things like this once I find out they happen. Writing reviews like this always feel extremely hard to write, but if i’m going to be honest, after hearing the news that Sophie, acclaimed trans-musician, had sadly passed away, I felt like I really needed to talk about my feelings about this record as a testament to what this album meant to me growing up. I don’t know what came over me to write this, and hopefully the meaning of why ... read more

The best boyband since One Direction is finally back.

Watching a band that is as unfaltering in their constant knack for creativity and vision as Brockhampton is in action is a truly mesmerizing sight to behold. I honestly feel bad for anyone who won’t be able to get into Brockhampton’s music before their supposed disbandment at the end of the year as following around the artistic metamorphosis Brockhampton has foregone since the days of the Saturation trilogy has been like ... 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

CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST is a lightning wink to nostalgia, a real instropection of its author. Tackling a very human concept album and a formidable musicality, Tyler delivers us a new lesson.

(Back from vacation, I missed you AOTY)

Since his debut, Tyler The Creator has been a force to be reckoned with, both for his personality and his musical signature, without having been unanimous for many years. With Flower Boy, he managed to reconcile the two to become undeniable. However, Tyler has ... read more

Not only will For the First Time easily become a favorite for the 2021 rankings, but this treasure has the potential to become a benchmark for the future. In other words, this is not a day like any other. Black Country New Road is the symbol of these new groups of genius who point the finger at the misdeeds of today's society, while redrawing new musical contours, as if they were invested with a mission to care for the future.

It's fascinating how Black Country New Road brings out something ... read more

Before anything, I pledge you to not be harmful and insulting. If you do like the album, give Justin constructive support, if you don’t like the album, don’t be cynical, it leads to nowhere.

SOUR is a formulaic, predictable breakup album. A collection of similar sounding ballads, it mostly follows the same song structure of her hit single "drivers license": muted moody verses, belted chorus and layered vocal effect on the bridge.

Her indie girl voice is better than most, but she has an unpleasant timbre at times with belting that quickly becomes flat and repetitive. "good 4 u" and "jealousy jealousy" do well to keep things fun with their angsty pop ... read more

Drake continues his downfall on Certified Lover Boy, a compilation of ultra comfortable songs that brings nothing special.

Is it possible to master the art of sass as much as Drake? It's been a few years now that the Toronto native has had this status of artist as much inescapable as irritable, because we must admit that Drake has raked up so many records that it is enough to put him on a featurings to make the sales figures of a frontman jump. When Drake proclaims himself the "Certified ... read more

Is this really the same artist who made Melodrama?

Lorde's new project, "Solar Power" only tells me one thing only, and that's that the mainstream pop artist turned folk trend needs to come to an end.

Anyways, Taylor better, Clairo better, and Youngboy better goodnight this disappointed me

Edit: I have relistened a few times from my original 3 listens and the project is only decreasing in value due to it being so boring for me. The highlights do stand out though. Anyways going ... read more

WOW!

I don’t love it.

There are moments in music, which are very rare, where you hear something and by the end of it it dawns on you that everything is different now. One of those moments that I can still vividly remember eight years later is when Lorde broke through with her debut album “Pure Heroine”, which managed to be not only an infectious pop album but seemingly killed mainstream pop music as we knew it. A long four years later saw her somehow outdoing herself with ... read more

Oh Lorde, sadly made another one.. Power Solar had everything to warm our hearts, but it is limited by too little content. Lorde's performance is the very symbol of this first failure.

For once, it's necessary to go straight to the heart of the matter because there's no need today to really introduce Lorde. The New Zealand native has clearly (and normally) conquered the world by becoming one of the most talented pop artists of the last decade. Her previous album, Melodrama, put her on a ... read more

Crackheads running rampant in England streets, mental wards overflowing with patients, the grassy pastures of rural Britain. Squid’s jazzy post-punk revival opus, the eclectically apocalyptic ‘Bright Green Fields’, attempts to tackle the un-urbanized section of their homeland, a massive 90+% of England that goes oblivious to outsiders, stepping into the shoes of those who live past the picture-perfect facade portraying England as nothing but sunny green fields and stunning ... read more

Taylor Swift and the Lizard Wizard

Even if you aren’t a fan of Taylor Swift, you have to admit: not a lot of pop stars are able to release two records in one year, let alone during one of the most difficult years in recent memory. Quarantine clearly has sharpened Taylors mindset and borderline forced her to pin down exactly what her individual sound is, removing the excessive glitz and glamour that has previously turned me off from her music and going back to a more stripped back and ... read more

...fuck.

Do you ever hear an album that makes absolutely no sense, yet at the same time, makes perfect sense? Have you ever felt that duality, that stark contrast, that perfect clash when listening to something? Because for me, 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix', the sophomore record from Injury Reserve, is exactly what that is; it is something that makes absolutely no sense, but it makes perfect sense. This is an album that is grief personified, laid out and dissected, to a horrifically accurate ... read more

“I met her accidentally
It was at the Cambridge Science Fair
And she was so impressed I could make so many things catch on fire.”



Anxiety:

The predator that is ever growing and only gets stronger over time if left unkempt. Does it hunt you? Are you the prey?

For the First Time *is* that beast. It *is* the stress. It is the building of the calm until the thunderous storm. You begin in Athens, but there is a flood that knocks you away. Crashing waves of a tsunami flings your body ... read more

THANK YOU FOR 500 FOLLOWERS! SOUR IS PERFECT! ONE YEAR SINCE I JOINED AOTY!

SOUR, the debut album from Olivia Rodrigo, is the best break-up album I've ever listened to and might be album of the year. Olivia Rodrigo started her career early, acting in a few Disney TV shows and started singing on Instagram, which caught the attention of some people who thought that she'd be an amazing singer. Olivia Rodrigo, who's only 18 years old, has understood the pain of a break-up and the heartbreak that ... read more
