Paramore - After Laughter
"After Laughter" is the first album I've heard in full from Paramore, I've already heard several singles from them such as "Hard Times" and "Misery Business" but I decided to embark on this journey of their discography before the launch of their future project "This Is Why" of next year.

The album surprised me a lot by the depressive themes hidden in a fun and bold production. In general terms the experience was well executed even with some fillers or ... read more

Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl
"Hold The Girl" is Rina Sawayama's second studio album after the acclaimed "SAWAYAMA" where her creativity and innovation were very praised.

In the same way that fans were disappointed with Charli XCX's more poppy proposal recently with "Crash", perhaps many will feel the same with this album. Rina takes a different proposal from her predecessor and embraces a personality of a true pop vocalist of the 2000s, such as Kelly Clarkson. The production is certainly ... read more

Michael Jackson - Thriller
"Thriller" is the greatest pop classic of all time, almost bordering perfection. The project contains hit after hit. "Thriller", "Billie Jean" and "Beat It" are timeless singles that inspired a generation of new artists who wanted to be like the singer.

The deep tracks on the album are also great too, but are kinda overshadowed by the brilliance of the singles. Michael showcases what pop can offer, while also displaying a charisma and musical ... read more

Michael Jackson - Off the Wall
"Off The Wall" is the most sonically cohesive work within Michael Jackson's discography, blending various genres such as contemporary R&B, disco, funk and pop in a perfectly confined way. The feeling brought on the album is one of pure fun and release, we can see that Michael took a step forward in experimentation and the shot was accurate.

The artist's vocals here are as smooth as butter, making him an expert at finding the best timbre to match the melodies. In my opinion, the ... read more

Lorde - Melodrama
Easily the best pop album of the 2010's
Björk - Utopia
"Utopia" is an album that took me a long time to listen to, given its density and unconventional structure. The project ends up focusing a lot on its soundscapes and little on its melodies. While I'm blown away by the majesty of the production and vocals, I wouldn't go back to this world created by Björk.
"MOTOMAMI +" is an excellent addition to this crazy universe created by Rosalía. One of the things I most appreciate the singer doing is a deluxe that is not done in the regular way, where all the extras are deposited at the end of the album without any consensus. As a highlight I mention "LA KILIÉ" which has great brazilian funk influences.
Rina Sawayama - Phantom
I'm definitly going to love this album
Caroline Polachek - Pang
A really lovely experience with great production choices and vocals, with a sweeteness that I can get rid off
Demi Lovato - HOLY FVCK
Demi Lovato returns to her punk rock roots on "HOLY FVCK", featuring a journey of an artist tormented by her demons, specifically addiction.

They have already shown a lot of interest in these genres in the initial projects "Don't Forget" and "Here We Go Again", but the difference is in the embrace of the genre and all aspects of its intensity. The production of the singer's eighth album is stronger and more extravagant, unlike anything in Demi's discography, a ... read more

BLACKPINK - Pink Venom
I hope blackpink is not in my area
Megan Thee Stallion - Traumazine
I really wanted to write a complex review of Megan's new album, but I just can't help but feel disappointed and annoyed with the project. I only managed to finish the album after the fifth attempt because the experience was so dry (that I would rather listen pretty much to anything else).

My biggest problem with the album is definitely the production, it's so colorless and monotonous that Megan's flow doesn't make up for it. The whole thing just made me miss listening to "Good News" ... read more

Nicki Minaj - Super Freaky Girl
It's bad that Dr. Luke it's behind the production, but if ya'll can't be imparcial and review the song for what it is just don't give a score. Since Nicki released the snippet of the song I'm completely addicted with the chorus, it sounds like a different and better version of Anaconda. The verses could have a little more punch to it, but they're decent. Overall the song it's fun, carefree and the production it's above average, one of Nicki's best songs since a while.
Bad Bunny - Un Verano Sin Ti
In the end, Un Verano Sin Ti has more good points as a standalone work than a cohesive collection of tracks. Within the latin music mainstream, Bad Bunny stands out for his charisma and creativity, being an artist capable of destroying the barriers of language. The album is easy for many listeners around the world… even if you don't understand any spanish. The singer's positive energy is universal and the aspirations and influences of the project heat, making us want to be with Bunny ... read more
Steve Lacy - Gemini Rights
I don't have much to say about the album itself as this is my first introduction to Steve Lacy, but it was a very pleasant experience. There were several moments where I thought the singer could go further in terms of production but in terms of vocals and lyrics Steve managed to capture my full attention and making me fall in love with him. A lot of potential coming from him.
Carly Rae Jepsen - Beach House
It's not that bad like you're making it out to be, it's camp and fun, just needed some more interesting production elements towards the end for me, but overall, the song is good, just not great yet
"RESSAINANCE" is the first act of a trilogy of albums. Filled with personality and charisma, the music star's seventh album is one of the most interesting in her discography.

I didn't expect the album to contain so much trap, but it was a great surprise. You can see that the singer expanded the style used in "Everything Is Love" (a collaborative project with Jay-Z), creating fast verses mixed with vocals of an extraordinary range, one of a kind. The genre is complemented by ... read more

Charli XCX - Hot Girl (Bodies Bodies Bodies)
Charli is having her hot girl summer, and I love to see it
Lizzo - 2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)
One of the better and catchier songs on "Special"
Billie Eilish - Guitar Songs
Billie going into a kinda of depressing folk sound just makes sense to me, remembering something from WWAFAWDWG like "i love you" or "listen before i go". To the production, to the vocals, to the lyrics, everything sounds extremely beautiful and enchanting, but I also think she can improve even more (possibily in a future album), but for now, this was a really good surprise!

On Nicki Minaj - Super Freaky Girl
"@zachbeer the whole point of AOTY is to review the music, not the producers or crew behind the art. If you let things like that influence your score you should just not review that thing (or give just a commentary/review without rating it), because you're being imparcial. I know it's a shame someone in the position of Nicki to work with Dr. Luke, but if we stick to every single problematic thing about today's music in our critics, we are losing touch of what's actually important, the quality of the music. We can call out the abusers but at the same time review things for what it is (for example Kanye West)"

On redbded's review of Caroline Polachek - Billions
"Hope you get well soon! I myself have suffered an existential crisis about my role on this site. I started to get pretty obsessed with writing reviews right away, which ended up making my own experience with listening to music suffocating, forcing myself to listen to things that I wasn't even interested. After taking some time and reflecting a lot, I ended up coming to conclusions about myself and being less demanding of myself in this site, as well as finding other hobbies like digital design. If you ever need to talk you can go to my social :) <3"
