Dear AOTY users, today I reached an incredible milestone: 2,000 ratings!! In order to celebrate, I will review one of the most important albums of 2000 (yes, it is a joke, sorry), "Kid A" by Radiohead. I take this occasion to wish you and your families the best Christmas possible :)

Radiohead came from the incredible critical and public success for "OK ​​Computer" (1997), the CD that had catapulted them on everyone's lips like the saviors of English rock. Following up ... read more

The people who have been following me for some time know that I like to review special albums when I reach important milestones. Well, having 1,500 followers is really something that I am proud of, but also scared of in a way: I don't know if I really deserve this kind of appreciation here on AOTY!

I really would like to thank each one of my followers, hoping to have their interest with this review of "Discovery" by Daft Punk!

After 28 years of honorable career, the two most famous ... read more

1,400 followers... well, that is way more than I expected when in 2017 I started my musical journey in AOTY!! That is why I would like to thank each one of my followers for their kindness, the numerous useful reviews I read and the tips they gave me during these 4 years! To celebrate, I would like to review one of my favourite album ever, "Loveless" by My Bloody Valentine!

Thirty years after its creation and finally available on streaming services, "Loveless" by My Bloody ... read more

1000 FOLLOWERS!! My God, I am not a huge fan of numbers and I am not an influencer of any sort, but I am really proud and happy to have such trust from many AOTY users! To thank them I would like to share my review of "Pet Sounds" by The Beach Boys!

1966 is a fundamental year for pop music: alongside the legendary "Revolver" of the Beatles, in America the Beach Boys released one of the most influential CDs in the entire history of music: that "Pet Sounds" which ... read more

My God! This is my 1500th rating in AOTY... almost three years have passed since I have joined the site and I am very happy that I gathered almost 1000 followers for my account! I promise I will try my best to maintain the trust that (hopefully) they have for me! Choosing my 1500th rating was not easy, then I opted for the best Bruce Springsteen album (so far for me at least), full of iconic songs and great choruses... well, almost perfect!
Final grade: 9.5.

Over a year ago, I asked you and many other AOTY users what album you would want to be friends with. Welp, I decided to bring the concept back, with a sorta 'sequel' to that list and a reverse question:

If an album was personified as a person, what's one album you would avoid at all costs, whether it be cause of corniness, flat out racism or if it's simply a bad album.

Thank you for your time if you do end up responding and have a good one :)
