Special Review: Farewell Supervillain

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Going on a road trip with my family during a chilly Christmas 4 years ago. Before that point, around November, I've heard MF DOOM's name being thrown around in music Facebook groups before. I've seen music YouTubers hold him in such high regard. Why not give him a listen? I looked him up on YouTube and I saw a song called All Caps. The dusty vintage sound of the piano ascending and descending in a looped fashion, ... read more

A true master within the soul genre. This is the second album from Ms. Nina Simone that I'll be briefly discussing. Once again, Ms. Simone displays why she's one of the greats. What makes her stand out from contemporaries isn't just her heavy somber vocals, but how well she's able to utilize them to create a whirlpool of emotions like none other. It's exhilarating, it's elegant, and even tear-inducing.

This album packed full of songs ranging from the topic of love, womanhood, work ethics, ... read more

Quadeca's really come a long way from the kind of content he was making throughout his YouTube career. As Quadeca started leaning more into becoming a full-time artist, it was clear that he really didn't have much in the way of focus or direction with his music.

While Quadeca had developed a dedicated fanbase, some also placed him in the unfortunate category of being a "corny rapper", and while it is an understandable box to put him in, I always found it unfair, because the potential ... read more

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!

What is an album you like from an artist you don't like (for a list)
Jan 4, 2021
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!

These are reviews that I find has a bit more depth than my usual reviews. I usually tend to come off a bit more nerdy in some of these. I also tend to get a bit more emotional in some of these as ...
