There's a poem by Cynewulf called Christ II. But many have dubbed it 'The Ascension'. It's arguably one of the most important poems to ever exist. Cynewulf is, for context, one of only 2 old english poets we know of and Cynewulf only has 4 known poems that have made their way to the modern era. Think about that for a minute. This poem is one of the only ways these people of the past are communing with us. We have to get their culture, faith and manner of speaking from these works. It's a ... read more

There's a tradition in american literature that I don't believe has gotten nearly enough of the credit it deserves called cowboy poetry. It's poetry that can tackle pretty heavy topics within the lens of pastiche americana and it can lead to some beautiful moments. I read an article from Ryan T. Bell some point last year where he said that it's a tradition that goes back over 150 years and yet no one is talking about it? But why? Some of this poetry is phenomenal! I mean Reincarnation by ... read more

An album that just radiates cool! The Kaplan Brothers somehow breathe new life into a tradition that wasn't even close to dead at the time. Well worth a listen.

Wordsworth wrote in his poem 'Composed upon Westminster Bridge'
"Earth has not any thing to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:"
It's a powerful sentiment but one with a heavy subtext. This poem is not about a bridge, it's not about a river but it is about morning. A wierd liminal time between the innermore darnkess of night and the crushing intensity of day and this mixtape makes me feel the same feelings that one may feel ... read more

Helllo, namasteπŸ™πŸ», 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. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ»

good taste :p

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)

hello, to celebrate reaching 1000 followers, i will be making a community list. for this list, all you have to do is tell me the album you have the most fun listening to. it doesn’t have to be a “masterpiece” or have wonderful songwriting or anything. it just needs to be enjoyable to you. thanks

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. πŸ™πŸ™

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
