Pi'erre was doing his thing on here, almost for the whole hour he delivered with fun, dreamy and heavenly trap beats. Some tracks with features kinda ruined the flow of the album for me, and for a full hour of Pi'erre, there are some spots where it's just lowkey boring, but I mostly really enjoyed Pi'erre crooning over these sweet beats, he made a perfect album for listening to it in the background and not really paying attention, plus tracks like "Couch", "Practice" and ... read more

Almost 3 years after releasing 'FM!', Vince Staples is finally back with an LP full of laid back bangers, mellow flows, revelations and mental struggles, all shared with the listener.

Vince's last album ended up being my second favorite from him, because of its consistency, brevity and many west coast bangers, and on this self-titled LP, he once again delivers a really short album, at only 22 minutes and 10 songs. And well, even though this album leaves a lot to be desired after it's ... read more

So, Post Malone has a really unique voice in the trap genre right now, and he usually stands out with his vocals, yet he decides to shoot for a Playboi Carti type of baby voice here.. But why? He doesn't pull of this inflection well, and the overall tune here is weak, the production sounds like your generic psychedelic trap type beat, and Post Malone's refrains and repetitive flows go in one ear, and out the other. Really underwhelming comeback for such an interesting artist in the game.

Okay, why do I like this so much? I never thought I'd enjoy Bladee's old material after hearing 'Red Light' and hating most of it, yet I've been bumping this track for like a month now. That beat is amazing, and I like the ambient parts, Bladee's heavily autotuned refrains are really catchy and full of charm, and it's just a really solid cloud rap song.. I guess my draining has started.

'Polaris' is a really intriguing single for Damon Albarn's upcoming album, it's surprisingly colourful and energetic, and doesn't lose its infectious momentum throughout its runtime, at all. Damon also compliments the energy of uplifting synths and electronic beats here with grandiose, heartfelt vocal lines. One gripe I have with this song are some of the lyrics, because I'm yet to figure out any message in this song, they're simple, but metaphoric, and I'll be honest, I don't know what Damon ... read more

'CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST' marks Tyler's triumphant return to hip hop, filled with banging hardcore beats, amazing lyricism, relentless flows and killer features, also with more introspection and personal verses than ever, even in comparison with 'Flower Boy'.

Tyler makes an effort to create some beautiful jazz rap and R&B tunes on here, perfects the ideas he's shown on 'Cherry Bomb' while sounding better than ever on these summery lovesick jams like 'WUSYANAME' or 'SWEET / I THOUGHT YOU ... read more

Hi, I’m making a list about album/s that changed AOTY users music tastes, if u have any albums that introduced u to new genres or shook up the music u listen to or something like that, i’d love to know :))

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!

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

what is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?
Aug 22, 2021
Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do

About

Well, I'll be honest, I've gotten quite tired of writing reviews, being on this site, keeping up with new music releases, and lost my interest more and more with every day of being abscent on AOTY. I'm really thankful for all of the support and good times, but sadly, I really can't find the time nor the will to be active on here nowadays. With what's going on in my life right now, I don't know if I'll come back to this site soon, but I'll remember everything this site has taught me, good and bad

Just a list for LPs/mixtapes/EPs that I want to put out a review for in the future, but I'm yet to fully give them a listen, and for some of them that I have heard, I'll write quick opinion ...

My score in average for their LP's - 77. In conclusion, Gorillaz are amazing, their output over the years has had it's ups and downs, but there's never been a dull or boring moment, lovely group.
