I’m just gonna jump into it. I don’t care for this too much, and I think it comes down to his delivery and lyrics. Here, Hutson writes very detailed and specific lyrics, much like a very popular and acclaimed female singer-songwriter you might know. But yet for some reason I love Phoebe Bridgers’ music while I only find this to be fine. But then I had a thought, if Phoebe Bridgers were to sing these exact lyrics over the same instrumentation, I’m sure I’d like it ... read more

Leading up to this release, I was convinced BC,NR wouldn’t be able to make a better album than For the first time. And man, I have never been happier to have been proven wrong.

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!
