 - Rhapsody in Blue; An American in Paris
95
Absolutely gorgeous in almost every aspect, George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue/An American in Paris is not only one of the best works in the modern classical landscape, but music as a whole.

The ‘STEREOTYPE’ singers establish that they are a force to be reckoned with through a scintillating mini-album that sets the bar even higher.

Which is better in your view - An artist putting forth an attempt to explore different sounds and switch things up, or sticking to their signature sound?

Taeyeon is a special case in K-Pop. She is a generational talent - a girl who possesses an unworldly vocal range, who utilises both her chest voice and falsettos to express her palette of emotions ... read more

Let me ask you this: Did you honestly think this would turn out badly?

𝐀 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐎𝐮𝐭 𝐎𝐟 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 (𝐓𝐨 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐬) - 𝐀𝐧 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐒𝐢𝐥𝐤 𝐒𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜 𝐛𝐲 𝐒𝐢𝐥𝐤 𝐒𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜

Absolutely amazing. Without any prior experience with Magdalena Bay, their definitive sound presents itself in self-effacing enchantment right from the opening title track. The experience truly lives up to the album name - 1. volatile in styles, playfully hopping from sound to sound, drenched in synth and nifty rhythms. 2. sprightly, full of congenial energy delivered from an alluring character. It's one of those albums which gives great joy to both easy and dedicated listening - You couldn't ... read more

Over a year ago, I asked you and many other AOTY users what album you would want to be friends with. Welp, I decided to bring the concept back, with a sorta 'sequel' to that list and a reverse question:

If an album was personified as a person, what's one album you would avoid at all costs, whether it be cause of corniness, flat out racism or if it's simply a bad album.

Thank you for your time if you do end up responding and have a good one :)

Just a list to make sure I listen to the albums I wanted to before and hoping that these records won't fade into the all-consuming void.
