An often-overlooked live record from the legendary Japanese indie rock band Number Girl, the very last record right before the band’s break-up. Pure insanity that relentlessly engenders brilliant noise, heat, and strong senses of presence, but most especially the emotions, love, sadness, pity, and nostalgia. Overall sound does resemble your favorite bands like the pillows or Mass of the fermenting dregs, and although this doesn’t tie with the sympathetic experience as the ... read more

This is why Ryuichi Sakamoto instantly fell in love with this woman’s music, it’s endlessly beautiful, too obvious to the ears. And despite being a collection of cover songs for her original documentary film, this record shows her most pristine yet technically and rhythmically complex piano skills that just seeps in the cracks of the heart and satisfies it with warmth, and tenderness. There’s something that’s really touching and nostalgic about this woman’s voice ... read more

Funny one. Just finished watching this footage of a Japanese variety show starring two comedians, featuring the infamous Yamantaka Eye of Boredoms as a guest instructor for the segment "Making the world's worst and strongest band project ever" where they visit studios and do crazy jam sessions and stuff. And then suddenly this man Arto Lindsay (who happens to be the leader of DNA) appears with a brief introduction & some sweet folk music in the background which I assumed it was ... read more

The fervent speech. The everlasting heat, pressure and the god damn heaviest melodies you'll ever hear. Man, never thought techno-pop can be this powerful! Especially by this 67-year old impregnable mad scientist who, holds his neon-green laser gun, exists in a place far beyond our knowledge, manipulates asteroids and interstellar clouds, physically incapacitates us humans with these repulsive electronic tunes and his magnificent orchestra— Techno-pop? Hmm…I call it, prog-baroque ... read more

if he didnt tell the engineer to go find go it mightve sounded as good on my headphones 😭

yeah but that sorta makes sense. but for some reason, its a sea of difference. i was underwhelmed listening on headphones but it was transcendent on both my car speakers and my tv lmfao

my headphones suck so i listened to donda on my tv today and for some reason it was better. I feel like mix and mastering issues get more apparent on headphones, which is either good or bad

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do
