Sandra - Into A Secret Land

Yo, like, even though this album has every 80's cliché in its production, I was actually surprised by how consistent, fun and catchy it is.
Yeule - Glitch Princess

This album is the equivalent of those pretentious, quirky and sensationalistic Tumblr bios: "this is where my demons hide", "we're the kids who are dead inside", "too fucked up to function" and so on. Truly very indie soft pale grunge.
Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl

This was such a divisive album for me. I was introduced to Rina's music in 2017, a few weeks after the release of her first EP.

Hey Mate,
Just wondering if you were able to contribute to a list by @CamDoesMusic and @truthfulreviews based upon your 10 favourite 90's albums. This would work through you messaging myself a list from 1 being the best and 10th being the 10th best album you have listened to from the 90's. If you are able to contribute with a quote summarising the particular album as well that would be awesome! Your information delivered to us will be used to create a list named "AOTY Users Favourite 90's Albums".

Thank You So Much, Have a Great Day :)

Hey Mate,
I am currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

A compilation of albums from non-English speaking artists that I wanted to hear for quite a while. Everyone is free to recommend me more. I'd love to have more suggestions.

My personal choices of albums that achieve when it comes to storytelling, descriptive scenarios or witty and creative lyrical content. They're not in any particular order.
