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.

In order to thank you, I would like to share the review of one very special album, "Channel Orange" by Frank Ocean, THE BEST ALBUM OF 2010s in my humble opinion.

The question may arise spontaneously: why Frank Ocean? After all, R&B has experienced other ... read more

This is my 1111th rating on AOTY (strange number isn't it?), so I would like to celebrate this event with a review of this rating!

The punk band's second album serves the Priests to partially recalibrate their sound. The bloody post-punk of the origins is joined by more accessible sounds, reminiscent of the Foals, thus introducing almost dance-like sounds in their aesthetics.

If the aesthetics of the Priests has changed we owe it to the departure of the founder Taylor Mulitz, bassist until ... read more

hello, to celebrate reaching 1000 followers, i will be making a community list. for this list, all you have to do is tell me the album you have the most fun listening to. it doesn’t have to be a “masterpiece” or have wonderful songwriting or anything. it just needs to be enjoyable to you. thanks!
