It's time to do it right.

Back in 2004, Panic! was just getting started and trying to figure out what they were going to be, at the time the members included Brendon, Ryan, Spencer and Brent Wilson (who didn't actually do much as the original bassist, Brendon and Ryan were the ones to play bass on the album from what I understand, he was fired during the tour for that album). Things were different back then, Fall Out Boy had yet to explode and introduce the mainstream to this new era of emo ... read more

I am baffled by this record.

Like most I'd ask how they could make a song as fantastic as Coloratura and then this other bullshit but the truth is...when you're so desperate to please everyone it's hard to not come out with at least something that works.

This is such a bland record that it's barely a Coldplay album, actually it's not even a Coldplay album, try and listen to any of these tracks and tell me *yeah this is coldplay alright* with a straight face. They've fallen into the pitfalls ... read more

A bit disappointed, this seems like a mix of Amo and Post Human but it doesn't work nearly as well as either of em imo.

The song is stuck in this place where it doesn't go far enough with the heavier elements to truly rock but ultimately the electronic elements never go above simply being decent making for a song that tries to bring together 2 era's with none of the ambition or creativity behind either of them, for whatever it's worth it rises above 2 tracks from amo and it's half as good as ... read more

Rick Rubin puts Imagine Dragons back on track.

After Evolve and Origins, expecting an Imagine Dragons album to be a bland watered down version of pop-rock/pop was a given for most. The band didn't do much to turn things around with their music for a long time.

And this album was their last chance to turn things around, to finally show that the potential of their first 2 records wasn't gone, did they do it?

Yeah. Now look, I know, it's Imagine Dragons, and I also know that everybody saw this ... read more

Halsey is an artist that has had a very slow artistic progression in the beginning, from starting as a lorde clone and transitioning into making somewhat generic pop music where I think many expected her to stay, while she had interesting concepts for her albums, those did not translate to the music and its quality.

But after what are essentially (imo) 2 mediocre at best records, last year she released Manic, on that album she seemed to finally start to come into her own, the album had issues ... read more

The Fall Out Boy Story, Part 3: The Take Over, The Breaks Over

2005 was a huge year for the band with From Under The Cork Tree peaking at number 9 on the albums chart, selling over 2.7 million copies with 2 top 10 hits in the form of Dance, Dance and Sugar, We’re Going Down. There was a lot of pressure on the band for the follow up to Cork Tree to say the least.

So 2 years later, what did the band give us?

A lot, I feel like this album could have easily been a directionless overly ... read more

Hey Mate,
Just wondering if you were able to contribute to a list by @CamDoesMusic and @truthfulreviews based upon your 10 favourite 90's albums. This would work through you messaging myself a list from 1 being the best and 10th being the 10th best album you have listened to from the 90's. If you are able to contribute with a quote summarising the particular album as well that would be awesome! Your information delivered to us will be used to create a list named "AOTY Users Favourite 90's Albums".

Thank You So Much, Have a Great Day :)

Hey Mate,
I am currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

what is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?
Aug 22, 2021
Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do
