A brief collage of themes and unfinished motifs ranging and exploring a plethora of different hip-hop/RnB flavours with unexpected skill. The sketchy quality of the project may be a turnoff for some, but at the same time it works as Tierra Whack's first testament to her own talent and ear for sound and poetry, with little devotion for pre-definite form-and-content rules. It is difficult to pinpoint the short album runtime as a definite winning formula of late (and whether this will remain ... read more

As someone who's been struggling with mental issues myself, writing about Kanye West's latest, surprisingly short studio album is both a challenge and an enticing grasp for hope. That is not to say that ye (a highly suitable title for such a down-to-earth and intimate release) truly offers any sort of tangible solace or answer for whatever problems anyone might be facing on a daily basis; nor is ye West's most accomplished or eloquent work up to date. Much like 2016's TLOP, what we have at hand ... read more

Haunting, mystical and deeply evocative in its whispers and wails of gothic origin. The teachings from M. Gira and co. are stark clear on Anna von Hausswolff's new album, and they bring along a new peak of oblivious artistry that makes all her previous works sound like bland, misguided walks in the park.

It is nice to see Liz Harris stripping her sound a bit from the endlessly reverberating hallways that always permeated most of Grouper's previous releases. Since her last, Ruins, the ambience, the perception of the surroundings has started to sink in to her sound without losing that dreamy quality so essential to her artistic identity, and, as impressive as the abstract soundscapes on records like A I A and The Man Who Died in a Boat were, it is this more palpable and perhaps even ... read more

As aged as most of these compositions are, the joined efforts of both the band (with Neurosis' drummer Jason Roeder on board) and the producers at Jack White's Third Man Records manage to bring out the absolute best in Sleep's seasoned trajectory. With a few due exceptions, what we get here is an undeniable stoner-metal masterclass, a trippy, never-ending conceptual voyage to the utmost limits of human consciousness, tinged with the spiritual guidance of Al Cisneros' ever hypnotic vocal ... read more

I think I solved the problem

Honestly, I'm not sure if I want to rate again. It's annoying having to constantly add new albums to the site. I don't trust a lot of my ratings anymore as well, so I'd start a new account if I came back. I setup a new Last.FM account after my old one broke, so that's where I log my albums now. I don't discover anything on AOTY anymore.

I'm active on the discord but I haven't felt like rating lately.

That's interesting, considering the general consensus.

Nice to see someone check out Polnareff's.

No problem. I think that this is going to be one of this year's most interesting releases, can't wait for it.

There's a new Mount Eerie album on the way. Any expectations towards it?

I know that you review/listen many albums, but do you listen the new Looming's album -Seed ?

Wait, there was a new Myrkur album? And it's disappointing again? Nooooooooo
