Finally. I've been wanting to Review this album for a long time. Not just because it's one of the most respected albums in the electronic music scene. Not because it gave rise to a cult fanbase, Which is die hard to this day. But, because of how special it is to me.

The first music that I actually loved and searched to listened to was electronic music. The first ever album I listened to was True by Avicii. I just loved how catchy EDM was. I wondered why EDM wasn't the biggest genre, ... read more

Ok. The aesthetic, Sonically and the production is executed well. But, Not sure if i love it as a track.

The Production is sterile and overproduced like on Butter. The elements sound like they are fighting with each other. But, The Vocals are even worse this time. Ugh..... It makes my hair stand in a bad way. It sounds like it was completely made by A.I

The vocals get more and more annoying with relistens. I hated this. Im sorry. Id rather listen to Dynamite.

Okay. I loved this. The Songwriting is compelling and vocals are emotive and the production is likeable. Also, I can see this grow on me more on repeat listens.

This reminds me so much of SHE. I loved SHE so, Obviously i love this too. Also, Why did i get a dream that, Frank Ocean will be on this album. If he is, Im gonna lose my mind, I swear.

Helllo, namaste🙏🏻, loved your reviews and followed you. My 2nd conceptual EP 'Marine Affairs' has been just released and I will request you from my heart to check it once. I consists 4 songs (English majorly, with some tinge of hindi and Bengali in 2 track) and it will take only 8 minutes. I know you are busy enough but will be grateful if you review it on AOTY. Your review means a lot. It's a very novice attempt and I am learning, so I will request you to put a very honest review off course. Hope you are in safest of condition in this very hard times. If you do, it will make my day. Thanks in advance for your precious time. ✨🙏🏻

hey freddy sam!
First impressions are key when it comes to albums. A good opener can really open your eyes and let the listener know what is in store for them, a bad opener, on the other hand, can put a bad taste in the listener's mouth and ruin the experience for them.

Which brings me to my question for my list: What is your favorite album opener of all time and why? (only choose one, and please give the artist, album, and song name)

Oh I can definitely relate and respect why you’d feel that way! Jack Ü is definitely a polarising figure whose music is as polarising so this is why there is such a drastic distribution of opinions in regards to that album, so I definitely understand that this album doesn’t really appeal to you. By the way, I saw that you listened and rated "Nurture" this morning. Want to talk about it? What are your thoughts on it?

Ah thank you.
