EDIT: so...i watched the Pitchfork documentary on this album and gave it another spin...and while my opinions on it haven't changed much, i do get why it means so much to certain people or why someone would like it.

it's pure art and not in the pretentious way but more in the sense that this album was a geniune expression of what the band felt at the time.

now i know why i love the songs i do and why i dislike the ones i don't.

the songs i love have an atmosphere to them (i always ... read more

this brand of post-punk really isn't for me, huh...


it's not like i'm actively trying not to get into it and hopefully enjoy something.

it's a little much most of the time but when it bangs, it bangs!

shame's Drunk Tank Pink, unfortunately, sounds like a record i've heard before

i'm not kidding...

you put this up with any record in this lane and i probably wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

if you like the sound, you'll probably adore this
if you don't however, can't really say ... read more

EDIT: guess this isn't a popular opinion :(

oh my...

there's not going to be an easy way to discuss this is, is there?

so...i feel comfortable calling this his best album yet.
what i don't feel so comfortable doing is calling this good/bad or whatever stupid words we made up as an ill-conceived attempt to describe things.


i'm a Zayn fan and while i typically tend to like his music and tolerate the less stellar parts of it more than most people.
i'm not the kind of fan to pretend ... read more

they're so many reasons why this album shouldn't work.

for one it's a double album which is generally not a good idea especially if it can't justify it's length or feels like you put a bunch of throwaway tracks on it, just because...

it's also a mainstream Country album which don't tend to turn out that good.
refer to a certain mainstream ""Country"" album that came out last year if you wanna know what i mean.

shouldn't be too hard to find since it was simply the worst ... read more

i jumped right into this one with no clue about who she is or her music and i must say...
i had a little fun with this.

the album can feel a bit lacking and boring in plcaes and way too many songs drag a bit

but her passionate delivery and interesting subject matter made for a okay, if flawed listen.

special shout out to "Smiling" and "Sandbox Love".
the breakdown on "Smiling" is epic and i love how many times she says fuck on "Sandbox Love"

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!
