for my 500th review on this website, I thought I'd review something that's truly spectacular. This 2011 instrumental hip-hop release from the ever elusive Korean artist "ATIVAN COREA." This record is just so, astronomically ahead of its time and I still struggle to understand how someone managed to make this in 2011. The textures, the synth work, the sample flipping, it's all just so perfect here. The textures and sounds this album manages to create are just inexplicably fantastic and ... read more

King Gizzard goes in a new synth-centric neo psych direction with the most lowkey happy and innocent I've ever heard them, sadly though its also the most generic I've heard them. While when they hit the mark with this new sound they hit it HARD with some of the best psych-pop I've heard in a while, but this album has a lot of moments where it just does not stick out as unique in the genre at all, and I already am not that huge of a fan of this brand of psych pop so as much as I love Gizz, this ... read more

Before Charli signed with PC music and became one of the biggest hyperpop artists to hit the mainstream, she really was just making electropop/pop-rock music for clubs and it bangs all the same tbh. Some lyrics, production, and performances here are pretty subpar by the standards Charli has set for herself, but this was just her sophomore album so it's expected to be a little rough around the edges.

Best songs: London Queen, Boom Clap, Doing It, Famous, Hanging Around, So Over You, Die ... read more

While this album can get a little boring or generic at times, Katy Perry's sophomore album "Teenage Dream" has some of the best pop hits of 2010 and TGIF is easily one of the best pop songs of all time. The production is pretty standard for it's time, it's in the same electropop realm as Lady Gaga's ARTPOP and Ke$ha's early work, but honestly the youthful tween-pop vibe with the frivolous lyrics was the main appeal of this era of pop and while this album is no where close to executing ... read more

When compared to the singles that first introduced me to her, this album is much much darker, experimental, and way more emotionally potent than anything she's ever made. Her "a night in Virginia mixtape" hit pretty close for me when it first came out but I felt the execution of the ideas on that EP were a little subpar, this album though is an improvement on all fronts. That's not too say it's perfect though, the mixing and songwriting could use some work with just some songs as a ... read more

This album has some absolutely insane highs for a debut mixtape, but with Gambino's clearly still lacking production experience and his "sickboi clique" friends being awful rappers this album does sadly fall short of being good.

Best songs: Easy (Intro), I'm A Winner, Tru Dudes, Red Alert, Babydoll

Meh songs: Love is Crazy, My Hoodie, Til I Die, So Sick Wit It

Worst songs: Fire, Fresh, Assasins

light 4/10

Hey Mate,
I'm currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

Q&A list idea! A specific question asked to you that's connected somewhat to your PFP!

So, what songs in Kanye's discography is the perfect EP length soundtrack for SWEG?
