So Much Fun is...well, it's fun, but it's the sort of fun that's similar to playing duck, duck, goose.

For the most part, you're sitting in that stupid fucking circle, somewhat bored and disappointed, however, eventually arrives the rare and surprising moment when you get hit on the head and get to run around and enjoy yourself. When the brief moment ends, you are forced to sit back down and let the seemingly perpetual process repeat itself.

Swamp is Lil Darkie's most accessible attempt at the anti-meta niche he tries to carve for himself. Although Darkie's controversial sound could be considered a gimmick inspired by the current wave of clout-chasing, his music never feel like shock-value. Instead, Swamp is an authentic expression that is both extremely polarizing and relatable.

Whole Lotta Red is more of the same.

It's execution is nearly identical to it's predecessor, and it doesn't see Carti taking any bold new directions towards his sound. The album feels like a mirror experience to Die Lit, and it likely won't change anyone's perceptions of Playboi Carti's polarizing hype, but it may disappoint those who do indeed love Carti's sound.

Hook experiments with the slurred, melodic, and sometimes unintelligible (mumbled) approach to rap pioneered by Playboi Carti.

Although the motifs are simple, they're relatable, and Hook's sound is executed with a unique style and precision that signifies a diamond in the rough.

Nightmare Vacation matches the fury of Anger Management, with the mainstream edge of Nasty, and the pop-trap cadence of Sugar Trap, to deliver a trailblazing, yet underdeveloped debut.

Despite her collection of mixtapes and singles, and being XXL freshman, Rico still needed a proper introduction as an artist. Her evolution from release to release has been staggering, yet none of Rico’s prior projects fully encapsulated her growth and versatility. Previously, to have a complete ... read more

Bbymutha explores the weird and obscene with a serious undertone that strikes balance into her craft. It's a raw expression of womanhood and self-confidence layered in mysticism.

Although it tends to be a bit one-note, it's a note that very few artists hit, despite it's occasionally odd mixing.

sorry i was gonna ask you to contribute to a list but i just screamed TODOROKIIIIII instead

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!

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))

I read your Kehlani's new album review and I suggest you to listen to 'good to know' by JoJo. I found it so much better, it have a flow.

Hi there! I accidentally deleted my Fetch the Bolt Cutters review (instead of 'editing' it) and I'm quite pleased with it, would you mind giving it another look? I don't expect a like, just a read my friend!
I delete my reviews often
