Pinned Review

Just trying to break the ice and get my first review typed out on here, so I figured the best place to start is with my favorite album ever. I got into Car Seat Headrest after my dad showed Teens of Denial in eighth grade, when I was just exiting that infamous emo-pop phase everyone had in 2016 for some reason. When I did a little exploring on my own and discovered the original version of Twin Fantasy, I was quietly in awe. I could easily type an essay's worth of what this album means to me, ... read more

Gonna use my AOTY page to support smaller artists more:)

Only a few months after Folklore, Taylor has blessed us with its shorter, more cohesive sister album, Evermore.

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?
