[100] It has been over half a year and I have to say my opinion has strengthened immensly. This album I may say is my favorite, just for the composition and atmosphere it brings with it. Some lesser known tracks on here have become some of my favorite, however looking at the tracklist I now know I can rightfully give this an 100. I will stress that I really hope this music is eventually popularized. It deserves

[84.75] Bobby Tarantino, the third persona Logic would begin to use in 2016 on this mixtape was, in concept, created to allow the artist Bobby Hall to expand his trap sound without having it be associated with his other revered hip/hop works under the name Logic, and although you see by the artist who is credited, Logic, he did not go about this like Devon Henryx -> JPEGMAFIA, more like Kanye -> ye. With that preface, I can now begin.

As a member of Logic's fanbase known as I guess the ... read more

[62.24] While I somehow missed this when I was going through his discography earlier this year, I'm glad I had waited as even though I didn't think it was an above and beyond mixtape, I don't think I would've well understood how important it is in regard to his entire musical career.

What I refer to having noticed is the high probability that this is the first project to be released that was inspired by Kanye's 2008 record 808s & Heartbreak, where we see Drake in a dark somber tone ... read more

[58.06] This one is hard to write, though the record was equally hard to listen to (lol jk).

Life Of A Don, which saw Don Toliver in complete creative control whilst his previous two (Donny Womack, which was a great mixtape and Heaven or Hell, which was kind of good imo) were overseen by other artists, does not go in the direction I had anticipated or thought was good for him at all. Commercially, yeah this was the best decision he could've made. period. It appealed to the pop-rap sounds of ... read more

[79.31] While I believe that my praise may drop out of the sky in the next few listens, I would like to record what I think is really cool about this here half hour record.

Nascent, whom I infer is a producer and for this first record went the route of getting features to surmise its lyrical content, which has its own thing going on, is very interested in developing an aesthetic, the voices of kids playing in the background and sound effects layered over off-tempo drums creates a poppy almost ... read more

Hey Mate,
I am currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list and I'd love to know which album has had the greatest influence on your current taste in music? If you want, I'd also appreciate it if you could say exactly how it's made you grow/learn more as a listener (don't worry, you don't have to do this part).

Thank you for reading and answering, if you do

Hello! I'm making a list of people's favourite Beatles lyric, what's yours? Thank you :)


♫ I rate my albums by compiling an average of the individual score of each track on the album, based purely on my notes/feeling of the track, disregarding any genre specialization. I just love music and the idea that I can keep an electronic database of all of my ratings and that I can share them is just great. ♫ APPLE MUSIC: michaelm0stransky

75 - Above Average
50 - Average
25 - Below Average

I rate mainly music I like or artists I am interested in, so you'll see me put out good scores often.

Extended Plays are interesting projects because they only bare a few tracks in comparison to full length LPs, though a strong EP can be way more powerful than any record, which may have filler tracks ...
