This is the kind of album where you just take your favorites and put them in your playlist and never listen to this whole album again. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because there are a lot of solid tracks on here, even if there are some duds too.

I was expecting this to be a boring compilation with a few highlights, but I was pleasantly surprised. Family is a decent record with a lot of great features and production, but the runtime and occasional boring song hold this back. ... read more

This might be one of my favorite songs of 2020 in this lane. Both Cordae and Ski Mask come through with great flows, great energy, and some really hard-hitting and funny lyrics at times. The beat from Take A Daytrip is also really solid.

I'm not a fan of Christmas music typically but I saw Abel and gave it a chance.

This is not the typical Christmas song sonically, and I actually like that. The production isn't bad and the chorus is really catchy, and both Sabrina and Abel both give good vocal performances too. it's just the Christmas-y lyrics that make me cringe, but overall pretty solid.

LMFAO THE CHORUS HAHAHAHA. “I was really really really really sad” - Dixie D’Amelio

Am I the only one who doesn’t really know who this is but knows it has something to do with Tik Tok?

Yeah this is boring.

I’ll never get the Lil Baby hype. He doesn’t pick great beats, and he’s pretty average as a rapper. Yeah he has some solid tracks but the fact that he does so well with streaming numbers is mind-boggling to me.

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to a project where I interview iconic AOTY critics. In this project, the AOTY user base gets to ask the questions. For my debut interview, December 2020 edition, I have gotten TreyLikesBands on board to be interviewed. The question is, what is a music-related question you have for Trey. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the 15 best questions to ask Trey. If you can't think of any questions, you have time. I will not be finalizing the questions for a couple of weeks. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

hi Case, hope you're doing well! i'm making a list and i'd like you to participate. the question is: what is the most annoying song of all time?

You're thrown into a locked room with a gun to last for 5 hours. What song do they have to play on repeat to get you to give up and shoot yourself?

Album covers often get a lot of attention, sometimes more than the music itself but there's one aspect to albums that is very often overlooked: the title. The title often sets the mood and energy of the album, or is memorable enough to stick with you, but seldom gets credit for doing so. Anyways, this leads into a question I have (for a list): what's your favourite album title of all time?

Hey Case! Trey here. So, this year I’ll be hosting the Top 50 Albums of 2020 List Aggregate for users! The goal of this list is to achieve a concise and compact collection of the AOTY community’s favorite albums of 2020! Like last year, I’ll be choosing from 50 users’ lists to contribute.

That’s where you come in.

To guarantee your spot on the list, please let me know that you would like to be included. There are limited spots! That being said, to be included, you must...
* Have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from the year 2020.
* Have made a ranked list of those albums by Christmas (the last Friday of the year).

Remember, you can only be included if you have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from this year. If you only have a top 40, you won’t be accepted, unfortunately. If you have more than 50, that’s great! I’ll just be referencing your Top 50 for this project (I will peep the rest of your ratings just for fun).

Let me know! Happy listening friend!

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))
