"In the city, you can't see the difference between a pigeon and a dove"

I've been to New York before, but I wish I went to THIS New York, Wiki's perception of the city is heartwarming and soul-stirring. Navy Blue's Dilla-Esque production matched with Wiki's immersive attention-to-detail makes for a lovely album experience!

Wiki's dusty, nostalgic approach updates classic East Coast Hip Hop for a new audience, mixing the sounds of the golden 90s with the invigorating wave created by ... read more

We strive to overcome.

James Blake's latest album is an elegantly fulfilling emotional journey through Blake's process of coming to terms with loss and separation. Agonizing instability, bittersweet acceptance, and liberating rebirth.

It's been a decade since James Blake took the critical world by storm with his stellar, futuristic, and melancholic Self-titled record as well as his stellar EP, "Enough Thunder". Since then, James has become one of the most beloved figures in ... read more

He scared to shoot like Ben Simmons!

Unfortunately, apart from that line, this might be the weakest SahBabii song I've heard in the past years. I'm a little worried about the new album. As much as I loved "Barnacles", I have to admit that it was a commercial failure and I feel like Sah might be rushing a new album to try to compensate for the lack of streaming numbers on "Barnacles". We'll my fingers crossed that we'll get more ... read more

Holy Shit!
You're telling me the same day that I bought a ticket to George Clanton's show in Carrboro, he decides to drop an absolute fuckin' bop?!?
The gods have decided. This is fate. Now my expectations are unrealistically high for when I see him live.

Peggy's most celebratory track to date! The sample-based production is creative and thrilling and the bars are just as memorable as ever.

I'm going to see Peggy live this month and I'm desperately hoping he performs this one!

Possibly the most ambitious record I've heard all year. It's crazy to think that the singles might be the most accessible and conventional songs on the album.

Injury Reserve are no longer 'just' a hip-hop group. What genre do they inhibit now? I have no fucking clue.

"By The Time I Get To Phoenix" is a dense amalgamation of a multitude of sounds and genre influences. As a result, I can't say this album sounds like anything I've heard before. This is a double-edged sword. On one ... read more

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.

Glad you gave dom and the wizards a try ❀️



Hey there!

I'm a Brazilian-American film/basketball & philosophy enthusiast currently in Chapel Hill, in the midst of the college application process. No words can describe how much music is important to me. Hopefully, my reviews can try to do so.

I'll be honest. This year's list sucks. The worst part isn't the fact that I'm not enjoying much of these artists' music, it's that this is by far the blandest and most inessential crop of artists ...
