It would be kind of confusing if I didn't like this honestly. It's a fem nb-fronted screamo band that both draws on great influences whilst maintaining their own unique sound.

The particular album I was reminded most of when listening to this is Believes in Patterns by I Would Set Myself On Fire For You (which is a great record that you should also listen to if you want chamber music mixed with your screamo) with similar incorporations of violins, and other beautiful instruments not typically ... read more

Lil Yachty - Let's Start Here.
80
He took the wok to finally making good music.

To be entirely transparent, I've always been a bit of a Yachty hater. I found his voice and music to be excessively irritating, and I didn't see much (if any) potential in him.

Then, out of nowhere, he drops this.

This is one of the biggest improvements I've seen in an artist in a very long time. Yachty somehow created on the of the most creative and atmospheric psychedelic albums I've heard in awhile. I really hope Yachty sticks to this sound ... read more

Ropes Inside A Hole - A Man And His Nature
59
Wow guys, this sure is post-metal. Gee wiz. It does it fact, do the atmospheric thing that the genre does. In fact, it even post-rocks. Can you believe it? Get this: the songs are long too. I know. This really is an album that got released in 2023.
Panda Bear & Sonic Boom - Reset
69
This album is really good for putting you in a good mood, but I feel like this is kind of a retread of what Panda Bear has been doing for like a decade at this point. Still nice to listen to, but doesn't sound as fresh as I'd like.
Asian Glow & Sonhos Tomam Conta - dreamglow
89
I think this album is scientifically engineered for me to like it. Not only does it have AG's shoegaze/emo combination, which is always stunningly beautiful, but this has screamo added to the mix. I guarantee you that I will be obsessively listening to this album all year. Definitely my favorite AG collab so far.
Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space

Hi, I am making a community list and if you're interested in contributing I would appreciate your input. I have been interested to execute this research for a while so I hope to get as many responses as possible. You just have to answer a simple question: Do you use light mode or dark mode on the AOTY site? You can also give an explanation on why you use either one. Thanks a lot if you decide to answer!

I'm keeping my few CDs at the top, then having the vinyl be in alphabetical order based on the artist.

It's that time of the year again boys... I'm still doing a bit of year-end catch-up (starting college and work made it hard for me to get through as many albums as I used to), but I'll be writing ...

What I didn't know going into this binge is that this band actually fucking sucks and that this was not worth my time
