Pinned Review

Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
95
This was my favourite album growing up, so it has a lot of sentimental value to me ;~;. Plus the vibe of the album sounds vintage in such a unique way, and I love it.

Fun fact: What I wrote previously was the first review I ever wrote for this site :^>. Here's something more in-depth...

I believe the concept of this album is the complicated nature of relationships and people. Everybody experiences everything ... read more

The Rolling Stones - Hackney Diamonds
48
I don't really write reviews anymore, but going through this band's discography was SUCH a commitment last year, so I refuse to let my ranking be outdated >:(.

It's been nearly two decades since we've seen an album with original compositions from The Rolling stones, and it's refreshing to hear these legends return to the modern music scene. They completely honour their classic style, crafting a project that retains the same energy as their earliest records. That's genuinely admirable. ... read more

River Tiber - Dreaming Eyes

This is how I look when I flush the toilet and the water starts rising
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
90
I slipped on ice and fell halfway through this album. It really enhanced the experience.
John Lennon - Imagine
76
When I was in Grade 7, I made a parody of John Lennon’s "Imagine" that went like, “Imagine there’s no meatloaf. It’s hard to do. Nothing to live or die for.” I was a creative genius.

It’s interesting how much shade John Lennon throws towards Paul McCartney. If somebody wrote a song about me with the lyrics, “Since you’ve gone you’re just another day” I would probably cry tbh. This song is one of the first diss tracks ... read more

Joni Mitchell - Blue
88
Although this is a cliched statement, "Blue" is definitely the peak of Joni Mitchell's 1970's minimalist folk style. The storytelling, lyrical imagery, emotion and vocal performances are all flourishing in a way that is truly special.

Joni Mitchell mentioned that "All I Want" has more "tooth" than many of her early songs, which I agree since it carries a unique addicting energy that has a real bite to it. The lyrics express a yearning for a healthy relationship ... read more

Hey Bimapolis, I am once again an AOTY user asking for your time.

Self-promos aren’t something I usually feel comfortable doing, since if you’re not interested in what I’m promoting then I don’t really wanna make you watch something you don’t care about. And if that’s the case, feel free to just ignore me, I probably won’t ever do shoutbox promos again anyway lol. But I recently dropped Part 1 of my top 20 songs of 2023 and spent a TON of time on editing and stuff so I’m gonna self-indulge a little bit here. If you’ve got the time or it sounds like something you’d be interested in, I’d love to know what you think of it! Thank you!

What’s up, Bima? I know you probably get a lot of these, but this is important. To celebrate the end of the year in music and two hundred followers, I’m creating my first community list! All you have to do is send me your top 5 singles of the year! They can be ranked or not– it doesn’t matter. Also, you can add up to two honorable mentions! Here’s my list for reference:

1. Bending Hectic by The Smile
2. The Gods Must Be Crazy by Armand Hammer
3. Sorry Not Sorry by Tyler the Creator
4. The Blades by Squid
5. SCARING THE HOES by JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown

Honorable Mentions: We Shine At Night by Parannoul, Jenn’s Terrific Vacation by Danny Brown

Each song in the top five equals 2 points. Each honorable mention equals 1 point . After I get some entries, I’m gonna tally up all the points to see what the top songs were. I’ll contact you when the list is out! Peace! ✌️

Hello there Bimapolis!
Me and my brother recently released an album - in my review I explained the cool story behind how it was made and how it went semi-viral.
It would mean a lot if you could take a look, I promise it's pretty interesting :D

You can also check out my year-end lists that I just finished making, they took some time to make so I hope you enjoy the little notes I included with every album and song!
