FAVORITE TRACK: One Rizla

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Donk

I know it's only been four days, but I find myself falling more in love with the new shame record as the days go on. And, because of that, it's sparked a new interest in listening to this record again. I liked a few songs off of this over the years but this is the first time since then I'm taking a seat and listening to this in full to review it.

Songs of Praise is a gritty, more intense sounding record. There's these kinda scary vocals ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: Painkiller

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Where'd You Go?

Wishing's debut LP, To Forget, is a very beautiful and atmospheric debut. It combines a lot of lofi aspects I love to create songs that are lonely and lovely. The release of none of this was your fault, that came out five years later, is more mature and less filler.

none of this was your fault is more centered on the vocals than any post project. candles has a simple instrumental but vocals similar to Richie Woods or Beagles. ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: Peaceful Rain

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: I'm Home- Instrumental

So Happy Scrapes is the shorter sequel to Happy Shapes. It's more demos and instrumental tracks than Happy Shapes. This has a very similar feeling as Happy Shapes did with a childlike and mystical beat over most tracks. Peaceful Rain is a beautiful song and Mountain Face is a lot of fun. There's a really different and great, mysterious vibe on Space Puppy that sounds different than the mystical songs B. The Leo has ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: Candy Isle

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: I'm Home

There is something so friendly and happy about this record Every song feels very cartoonish in a way that's never over the top and can be enjoyable in the background. Happy Shapes is very nostalgic and cute and pays homage to the soundtrack of shows like Adventure Time and Over the Garden Wall. Warm House, Happy Shape and Hug Science are cute and upbeat snd the repetition of tracks like Scary Backyard is great. The Ian in the Water and ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: Emptiness is a Closet Full of Your Old Clothes

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: American Cruelty

Wishing is a band I was surprised to see a lot less people knew. They're very in-vain with teen suicide, Elvis Depressedly, Infinity Crush and Bedroom- which are all artists I grew up listening to. So I wanted to give the most auto-generated recommended album for me a review on here.

To Forget is a long and lonely listen. The single, Emptiness is a Closet Full of Your Old Clothes, is sad ... read more

FAVORITE TRACK: Sister

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Dreams from Yesterday

This album is very nostalgic for me. I can be the first to admit this is not one of his best projects but it reminds me of a different time which has a lot to do with why I enjoy it.

A lot of these songs sound very similar. Whether it's Mac's chill vocals or the very basic acoustic chords, it's a very laid-back album. Sometimes songs are too similar- with the intro of My Old Man and This Old Dog sounding exactly the same. The ... read more

Hey Jules! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. 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 best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. 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!

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!
