MORE MORE JUMP! - MORE MORE JUMP! SEKAI ALBUM Vol.2
65
Well at least this Vol. 2 album is much more bearable and actually listenable than their Vol. 1. That alone is commendable.
Catfish & The Bottlemen - The Balance
55
There are definitely a few great tracks at the first half of the album, with Longshot is by far their based track (Or a stadium anthem attempt) and perhaps their best opening album in their career. However, The Balance cascades to average-above average zone, mainly due to certain tracks becoming repetitive and shallow leaving this album to dust and forgotten; until you hear a song from that album on your shuffle play and go "Oh yeah, that track!".
The Last Dinner Party - Prelude to Ecstasy
100
Not a single weak track, everything was exhilarating and extremely fun to play-through.
The Last Dinner Party had delivered a wonderous debut album.
Perfection.
WONDERLANDS X SHOWTIME - Wonderlands x Showtime SEKAI ALBUM Vol.2
60
Wonderhoy! Vol. 2 is definitely a step up to their Vol. 1 album. A satisfying fun, inoffensive album.
Public Service Broadcasting - The Race For Space
95
This album's lack of ratings is a huge disservice, I implore you to check this out because Race For Space is an intimate exploration of the gestalt that was the space race. Telling a story with every movement, from the exciting heights of triumph to the thoughtful melancholia of struggle and loss. A definite essential buy, especially for all the vinyl collectors out there.

Helllo, namasteπŸ™πŸ», loved your reviews and followed you. My 2nd conceptual EP 'Marine Affairs' has been just released and I will request you from my heart to check it once. I consists 4 songs (English majorly, with some tinge of hindi and Bengali in 2 track) and it will take only 8 minutes. I know you are busy enough but will be grateful if you review it on AOTY. Your review means a lot. It's a very novice attempt and I am learning, so I will request you to put a very honest review off course. Hope you are in safest of condition in this very hard times. If you do, it will make my day. Thanks in advance for your precious time. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ»

Hey!!!! So today I had an idea to make a very fun list on this amazing website that I'm addicted to. So... my goal is to make a huge RAINBOW🌈list, so you get to choose an album that you like that has an specific color, it can be literally any album but the majority of the cover has to be of the chosen color. So I'm gonna start by choosing one of my fav albums which has the color: RED πŸ”΄

Send me a color and an album that you like, If you want to write something you like album this album feel free to do it!
Or you can just send the name and the color.

check the live update here all the time:
