I can't believe it. 500 reviews on this site. For the past 10 months, I've discovered, due to this site, so many incredible albums that have left indelible effects on my current taste in music. Ever since joining AOTY, my musical knowledge and appreciation have grown exponentially; it's changed me as a person in a way. Before I did start this review, I also wanted to say a big thank you to all my followers. I wanted to thank all of you for actually taking the time out of your day to read my ... read more

 - Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers
I think when it comes to King Kendrick Lamar, by this point, there's really nothing you can say that hasn't already been said. The Compton rapper's legacy is already untouchable at the top; he is the mastermind behind two of my four favourite rap albums and never ceases to amaze me with every one of his releases. He constantly offers new sounds, new flows, new perspectives with every project that he drops, and "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" is no exception. Over both discs, what ... read more
 - It's Almost Dry
New King Push; I'm a happy man right now. I mean, let's be honest, this man really hasn't missed in the past twenty years. Ever since bursting onto the scene alongside his brother Malice in the potent rap duo Clipse during the mid-90s, Pusha T has established himself as a rapper you can constantly turn to if you want something with punchy production and clever, poignant lyricism. And, I mean, if that's what you look for in Push, then "It's Almost Dry" shouldn't disappoint. It's a ... read more
 - mainstream sellout
Yeah, this is about how banal pop punk gets.

Over the past couple years, ever since Eminem famously made him switch genres, Machine Gun Kelly has cemented himself as one of modern pop punk's leading figures. In most cases, such a rise to prominence, especially by an artist who is really reaching out of their established field, is a sign that they're doing something right or even at least bringing something new to the table. "mainstream sellout", however, is a brutal reminder that ... read more

 - Up 2 Më
Now, it's been way too long since I've done one of these; real poor form from me.

Anyways, over the past month, I've started to grow an appreciation for Yeat, all of which stemmed from the Portland rapper's "Up 2 Me". In spite of its jam-packed tracklist, which extends to twenty-two tracks, a length which may appear overwrought to many, as soon as you dive into the project, Yeat proves that looks can be deceiving because, once I was hooked, I really couldn't give a shit about when ... read more

Sheesh, 1000 ratings. Mad that I’ve finally gotten to that milestone in my music listening journey, and I think I owe a thanks to everyone on this site for recommending so many albums that I’ve loved along the way; you all have seriously helped me grow my taste and have led me to so many incredible songs that I wouldn’t have found otherwise. So for that, I genuinely thank everyone on here.

Anyhow, for this review, I wanted to check out one of my “how tf have you not ... read more


it is i speed
i scream ahhh ahhhh
No worries. Thank you
Here it is:

I know I'm not alone when I say that Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven is an album that I have a very deep personal connection to. It's one of those albums that you can listen to a hundred times and never get bored of, uncovering tiny details you never noticed before in every listen. This album is packed full of some of greatest and most emotional moments in music history, whether that be its grand opening, its mysterious samples, or its droning, melancholic outro, all merging together to make monolithic hour and a half long post-rock masterpiece. There are a couple of albums that I consider to be "perfect", but Lift Your Skinny Fists is the album that deserves that title the most.

Hi, hope you're doing well. A few months ago you requested that I write a blurb for the album Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven by Godspeed You black emperor for your Definitive AOTY Top 100 list (thanks again for that). I know this may seem like a weird request, and I 100% understand if you don't want to do it, but I feel as though my writing on that blurb really isn't my best work. If it is possible, I would like to have it be replaced (I already made a new write up). Again, this may seem weird and unnecessary, but it's been bugging me for the past couple weeks, especially since the list made it onto the "Popular This Year" page. Thank you for your time and have a nice day

Hi there! Im doing my third annual Rio Awards, I would greatly appreciate if you vote!!


My friend says that I've ruined music because I review it analytically (same guy called MF DOOM boring).

I use my library as a list of albums that I want to listen to in the future. My reviews are worse than Corey Feldman's "Angelic 2 The Core".
