Conway finally clicked and delivered for me, by far his best, I know usually he has bars but the features and beats on his past work left a lot to be desired. He finally got those 2 flaws and picked them up to speed with him. This the hardest shit out right now, probably the hardest album in the griselda catalog

Droog and Fahim are suffering from oversaturation, flooding the market, everything they've been putting out is of rushed and low quality. just forgettable for the most part. slam dunk contest & WNBA are the only tracks that's worth returning to

So peaceful and blissful with jazzy horns and nature sounds, even when she's talking its nice and blends well with the song, doesn't even sound like interludes where other artists annoyingly put in

i hear a ton of potential from whoever produced and made these beats, however the rappers & vocalists need to go back to training camp and get better at flow, delivery, bars, story telling, quotables, the entire package really, at their best they were mediocre. The producer would do better on his/her own or collaborating with better rappers. the tracks with singing were the absolute worst btw

highlights: Sugar Rush, Perc Angels, Fuck, & Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏

What is your favorite album of the year 1970, and could I get a few words on your thoughts on that album!?

{I’m going to be doing a series of lists where I go through AOTYs favorite albums of every year since 1970 and this is the first part of that ultimate goal!!}

Hello there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!
