Beyond excited to finally be sharing this.

For years, I've always had an obsession with anything space-themed or space-related. I guess it's always been a form of escape. Naturally, this has become a theme in my music, and I feel that that sense has never been stronger than on this project.

I've never made a real effort to create a cohesive project prior to this, and I'm quite pleased with the results. I've taken many drawn from many different production inspirations, styles, and forms of ... read more

Such an incredibly easy listen, and the instrumentation is done so well that I've found myself coming back to this several times over. Country music, please take some notes from this!!

Standouts: Green Shadows, In Light of Us, Vaguely Satisfied, Tomorrow Never Comes

Went through ABBA's entire discography earlier this month, and I think that while each of their albums have some great moments, this is their most cohesive one. Rarely a dull moment, enough deviation from a typical pop formula to not get stale, and the typical ABBA charm that really ties it together. I've been needing some good pick-me-up songs lately, and ABBA have been certain to deliver.

Standouts: Eagle, Take a Chance On Me, Hole In Your Soul

This album is just one long adrenaline shot. One of my favorite parts about this album is that it starts with some unassuming piano notes, which do an extremely poor job at setting up the album because OH BOY WE'RE NEVER GONNA HEAR THAT PIANO AGAIN. The moment the drums kick in after that piano it's just. B A S S.

I've always admired how greatness and creativity can come out of such limited resources. And this album is no exception. So many great tracks from start to (almost) finish, so many ... read more

It's a shame the last 3 tracks are on here. Not that they're even remotely bad, but they just ruin the absolutely blissful atmosphere and sound that Eno had going on the title track, which has quickly become one of my favorite ambient tracks. Can't recommend the whole album but PLEASE listen to that first track.

This album is certainly much better produced than his previous album, but it lacks a lot of the grit and experimentation that the first album had that I really loved. And it seems like again on album 2, acloudyskye is proving to be an artist that thrives off of singles and has little to come back to for his albums. I think he still has plenty of potential when it comes to mixing the styles he's presenting on here, but they just don't quite click for me on this one.

Standouts: Heliov, Empty ... read more

Yeah I've doing alright, pandemic hit quite hard but I'm getting to the point where things make sense again. Haven't been as active as I used to be, logged in to pay my respects to SOPHIE because she deserves that. Working on some music, might share some in the near future

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

What is your favorite album of the year 1970, and could I get a few words on your thoughts on that album!?

{I’m going to be doing a series of lists where I go through AOTYs favorite albums of every year since 1970 and this is the first part of that ultimate goal!!}

To anyone still stumbling across my profile, this is now just an archive of all the stuff I like to some degree and feel like I can quanitfy. The ratings are still pretty inaccurate to my thoughts now; will be updating when I get around to it. The full archive of what I listen to can be found on my RYM account 'cosmilk'.

Have a great day everyone. :)
