๐Ÿ†It is time… for this year’s AOTY Awards๐Ÿ†Winners, nominees, categories, and everything else in the review below!๐Ÿ†

But first and foremost, some shameless self-promotion: My Best Albums of 2023 List (Top 65) is out and I'd greatly appreciate it if you guys checked it out and left a like that'd be pretty cool I guess๐Ÿ‘ -> https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/chode/list/110828/chodes-best-of-2023/

Now, as I was saying... For the third year in a row, the only award show where over 500 different AOTY users vote for their favorites of over seventy categories. Early in December, for the third year in a row, I posted a review with a form with ~75 categories- of which a grand total of 514 users voted on resulting on the nominations and winners you see below. This is the first time I am posting these results in the form of a review rather than as a list. If everything goes accordingly, I plan to do another one of these next year- so if you missed out on a chance to vote this year, just keep an eye out for the 2024 AOTY Awards when December rolls around. Now, without further ado, the 2023 AOTY Awards Winners:

Well, that’s that. The 2023 AOTY Awards. Once again, I want to thank everyone who voted and encourage everyone who didn’t to do so next year. I would also once again like to shamelessly promote my year-end list:

My Best Projects of 2023 (65 Records) -> https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/chode/list/110828/chodes-best-of-2023/

Also check out my review of Sampha’s Lahai I just dropped too if you get the chance: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/chode/album/732985-lahai/

Yeah that’s about it… oh yeah, and this Sprints album? The best moments of this album paint Sprints as a band to keep an eye out for in the current post-punk world. With this being my first experience with Sprints, I certainly see some potential in this band, though the incredibly catchy highs focus on meshing quality riffs with some of the good ol’ punk energy are somewhat spoiled by a number of tracks where the production feels somewhat dry or even, at rare points, kinda shittily produced. On top of that, they definitely wear their influences on their points on a few tracks here and there. Overall, however, I will be checking out whatever album this band of up-and-comers comes out with as I do certainly think the fundamentals to make something great are there

Playlist Adds: Heavy, Shaking Their Hands, Adore Adore Adore, Can’t Get Enough Of It, A Wreck (A Mess), Letter to Self
Worst Track: Cathedral

Also Maruja winning debut artist of the year ๐Ÿ”ฅ

how is "Cracker Island" the most disappointing when "And then you pray for me" is right there?
and how did BCNR beat Parannoul in live when even Ichiko Aoba is better than that I can't with this

AmyReal was robbed and Morgan Wallen should of been nominated for worst album

Obviously I'd have a few different winners personally (we all would!), but on the whole this is pretty much as expected - great work! Glad to see Maruja getting some recognition too :)

bl4ck m4rket c4rt snubbed for new artist of the year. rip.
1mo
eartheater and slowdive deserved over caroline and yeule 100%
1mo
I feel like portals winning worst album of the year is biased aswell, saying it’s worse than 6ix9ine is crazy
1mo
The amount of respect I have for this is insurmountable…

๐Ÿค
1mo
Also, Ngl, I heavily disagree with worst album winner; Melanie’s album was… bad to say the least, but it had listenable tracks that weren’t straight grabage.

I’d say HARDY or 6ix9ine deserved that title a bit more (maybe even FAKE TYPE. or Wyatt James tbh)

troye sivan in a wig robbed

lets go maruja
