At the dawn of a new year, pop’s darkest visionary Abel Tesfaye returns with ‘Dawn FM’, a record that not only comes at a surprisingly early moment but follows directly on from After Hours, posing the unavoidable moral question;

CAN THE WEEKND FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT?

There’s no need to introduce who musician The Weeknd is at this point – he’s everywhere. Instead I want to explore the CHARACTER that is The ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK: Jan 2022 Ep. 03 [Twigs]

While I’ll admit I was skeptical at first, ‘CAPRISONGS’ if anything is a playful and revitalizing excursion into a more mainstream avenue for the revered musician. And though I miss the magnificent days of MAGDALENE, I’m glad to see her so happy and confident in the present.

It’s not often you find an artist as vulnerable and transparent as Tahliah Barnett. Her music is not only a staple of art/experimental pop in the ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK: Jan 2022 Ep. 02 [Earl]

As one of hip-hop’s most enigmatic and consistent voices today, it’s no surprise that on ‘Sick!’ Earl continues his unique evolution with finesse, implementing newfound trap sensibilities alongside a familiar dose of thoughtful wordplay.

It’s fair to say that while Earl has always been unconventional - an outsider of sorts - I’d say most of the time the world has had his back, especially as some lucky fans witnessed him ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK: Jan 2022 Ep. 01 [Gunna]

Unfortunately for Gunna, 'DS4EVER' seems to veer away from the captivating, minimalistic appeal he has been a proud ambassador for within the trap sphere. Instead the album relies on conformity and gimmicks in order to rally attention for a project so early in the year.

Gunna is known for his woozy yet hypnotising flow paired with smooth and syrupy production that creates a distinct trap flavour for the rapper I feel he has only grown stronger with as ... read more

Some artists take years to release a great album. Moses Sumney crafts PERFECTION in a single take.

Re: ARCA U CRAZY HUH? (Pt. 2)

On the third instalment of her transformative 'Kick' album series, Arca delivers a fierce and skeletal set of bangers that utilise glitchy vocal acrobatics and fractured techno aesthetics to form the series' most robust work yet.

'Bruja' jumpstarts the record with possibly some of the most off-the-wall production I've heard this year to form a masterfully controlled chaos. This then hurdles the listener into lead single Incendio, a fiery track that lives up to ... read more

Quickly sharing my end of the year list as well before the year... well.... ends. Here it is: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/nooffensebut/list/56267/2021-ranked/
Don't feel pressured to look through it:). But if you do, feel free to tell me something you fully agreed with and something that you heavily disagreed with. I would love to hear some feedback, and I will make sure to re-listen to the albums were my ratings/reviews received backlash. Have an amazing end of the year! :D

I know that the users of this site love music very much, and I would like to share it with our artists from Kazakhstan. For today, I will send one album of one artist for now. I am very interested in what foreigners think about our music. So I'm waiting for your short opinion about this album.
