Samia’s debut album The Baby was one of my favorite records from 2020, and this EP is just as consistent—if not, more so—to The Baby. Scout is a fantastic EP and solidifies Samia as one of my favorite up and coming artists. If you’ve yet to listen to anything by her, Scout is a good place to start, and if you like it then I’d recommend going back to her 2020 album, The Baby.

Wow. I wanted to like this so much more than I did.

Cool beats and production every once in a while, but Tommy’s vocal performances are pretty boring throughout most of the record and not even the cool beats can make up for it.

Their best since Smoke + Mirrors.
And that isn’t saying much. But to be completely honest, I think I enjoy this more than Certified Lover Boy

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.

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list and I'd love to know which album has had the greatest influence on your current taste in music? If you want, I'd also appreciate it if you could say exactly how it's made you grow/learn more as a listener (don't worry, you don't have to do this part).

Thank you for reading and answering, if you do

hello, to celebrate reaching 1000 followers, i will be making a community list. for this list, all you have to do is tell me the album you have the most fun listening to. it doesn’t have to be a “masterpiece” or have wonderful songwriting or anything. it just needs to be enjoyable to you. thanks!

About

he/him

I will totally admit to having a slight recency bias

100 = PERFECT / my love for it outweighs any flaws
95 = Basically Perfect, But Not Quite
90 = Near Perfect; REALLY love it
85 = Fantastic; Really love it
80 = Great; Love It
75 = Really Good; Mostly love It
70 = Good; Enjoyable
60 = It’s decent; Somewhat Positive
50 = Neutral; not bad, not good
40-0 = Various Degrees of Bad
