Every Album I Listened to in 2024 (Chronological)

18 DAYS - sleep feeling
65
1st January

Ambient

TURQUOISEDEATH's newest record under the 18 DAYS moniker has the "prestigous" title of the first new album I listened to in 2024! It's not the best ambient music I've come across, but it isn't without its fair share of cool tracks. It's just a calming experience, but also a bit too long considering how much it actually does. The 17 minute song surprisingly held my attention for the majority of the runtime. Look, TD's music isn't really my thing, but I can't deny that they're one of the best musicians on AOTY.

Favourite Track: cloudy thoughts
Least Favourite Track: limon

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
twikipedia - still-life
70
1st January

Indie Folk

Hyperpop/digicore artist twikipedia makes a surprising change in sound with their newest EP, trying their hand at indie folk! Not much to say about this one, it's a pretty consistently good project that still has a small splash of hyperpop in it. Oh yeah, the third song feels scarily similar to a Help-era Beatles song. It's a cool EP.

Favourite Track: i wanna be the guy
Least Favourite Track: killing time

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
Levi Scott - welcome to year 2024, enjoy your visit
65
1st January

Experimental, Electronic

AOTY user @LeviScott welcomes the listener into the new year with a random assortment of experimental ambient ideas. It's pretty inconsistent and I have a few gripes with some production choices, but it certainly isn't without some pleasant surprises. The untitled 11 minute track in particular was quite a good song, working well as the climax of the album.

Favourite Track: [untitled]
Least Favourite Track: You're unrecognizable
Acidgvrl - YOU STUPID PINK GIRL !
30
1st January

Drum and Bass, Hip Hop

One day in and we already have a candidate for the worst of list. Acidgvrl/Yûmi make complete fools of themselves with one of the worst produced albums all decade. It's not like Acidgvrl usually haves great production, but with YSPG it feels like they straight up forgot how to make music. The instrumentals are mixed so low you'd think it was the bass in AJFA, leaving the vocals be the only clearly audible part of the entire album. The vocals are also awful, sounding like a slightly older and more immature Emily Montes. Also, the lyrics are horrible.

Yeah, this is terrible.

Favourite Track: LOONEY TUNES
Least Favourite Tracks: BRUH THAT GRIMACE SHAKE TASTED LIKE C*M, GAWR GURA MADE ME WET
Gupi - glow-zone
55
2nd January

Hyperpop, Bubblegum Bass

Yeah.... no. Gupi's newest EP isn't as obnoxious as a lot of hyperpop I've listened to but for what it lacks in being annoying, it makes up for in feeling kinda amateurish. It sounds like something someone would make as their first hyperpop project in FL Studio. It isn't really bad per se, but it's not really doing anything that interesting.

Favourite Track: DRC2
Least Favourite Track: if we were a movie
Temporary Jesus - Temporary Jesus

2nd January

Noise, Drone, Dark Ambient

AOTY's @ImplicitDoom drops an edgy and half baked ambient project. It ain't great.

Favourite Track: I Don't Listen To Music
Least Favourite Track: Godwaste
Jamal Gasol - The World Is Piff 3
65
2nd January

West Coast Hip Hop

The first hip hop project I listened to this year will probably also end up as one of the most uninteresting. It's not really bad but there is far superior WCHH dropping all the time. Average production with quite a few shitty bars.

Favourite Track: The World Is Piff 3
Least Favourite Track: New Orleans
ITSOKTOCRY - HESH
55
2nd January

Rage, Trap

Rage continues to remain as one of the most obnoxious genres of hip hop ever.

Favourite Track: STOP DROP & ROLL
Least Favourite Track: I HATE WHEN GIRLS DIE
paula - there goes yoki

2nd January

Hyperpop

I went into this expecting a chiptune-esque album from the artwork, so you could imagine my disappointment when I found out it was hyperpop. This just has all the tropes of the genre that makes me not like it that much. I guess there's a niche that this type of music is made for but I'm definitely not a part of it

Favourite Track: nothing at all
Least Favourite Track: iluvu2much
The Game & Big Hit - Paisley Dreams
65
2nd January

West Coast Hip Hop, Gangsta Rap

The Game Won't Stop, but he certainly should.

Favourite Track: idk
Least Favourite Track: idk
Katia Krow - Whispers from the Bloc Obscure

3rd January

Ambient

Nothing more than some pretty generic ambient music. There's far better out there.

Favourite Track: Into the Helio Slumber
Least Favourite Track: Out of the Helio Slumber
audry - Vampiric Premonitions
70
3rd January

Slowcore, Slacker Rock

The opener is one of the first great songs of 2024. The rest of the album varies from good to disappointing. Wished I liked this more but it just didn't keep up with the great opener.

Favourite Track: Sorry Goodbye
Least Favourite Track: Somnambulist
Miss Twee - Pure Lipgloss Artifice
55
3rd January

Mashup, Bubblegum Bass

An hour long bubblegum bass mashup track. No thanks.

Favourite Track: Pure Lipgloss Artifice
Least Favourite Track: Pure Lipgloss Artifice
MEDIA - Nihil Amoris
60
4th January

Alternative R&B, UK Bass

A bit of a dull alt-rnb album that feels far longer than it actually is. It's not doing anything that really catches my attention, although there are some decent melodies from time to time.

Favourite Track: earth mode
Least Favourite Track: requiem
Atomiste - ENCOUNTER THE MACHINE
70
4th January

Drone, EAI

It’s good, but not great. Granted I’m not familiar with EAI at all but I’m sure that there’s far more interesting stuff out there.

Favourite Track: ENCOUNTER THE MACHINE I
Least Favourite Track: ENCOUNTER THE MACHINE II
Aisha & The Gleamfish Emporium Jazz Band - AISHA/ISHA
70
4th January

Nu Jazz, Third Stream, New Age, Sound Collage

When you look at the song titles, you'd think that Dariacore 4 just dropped, but AISHA/ISHA is actually some weird ambient jazzy new age record. Definitely a surprise, but this is quite a cool record. It sounds like acid.

Favourite Track: you can cry in my arms (I LOVE YOU SO MUCH,//SWEET GIRL)
Least Favourite Track: all the black keys! (don't hide away from us we're your friends)

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
Little Boy Velvet - PICK ME
50
4th January

Mysterious Shit

Yikes. LBV drops an agonisingly long album full to the brim with songs that balances on the line between being a god tier shitpost or a painfully unaware disasterpiece. It's a mess. I kinda sorta respect LBV for having the balls to drop something so batshit insane, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it.

Favourite Track: IANO - Thoa
Least Favourite Track: Rule 7
Patricia Taxxon - Bicycle

IDM, Glitch Hop, Ambient Dub

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
Joeyy - Just Tired 2
45
5th January

Plugg, Experimental Hip Hop, Ambient

Props to Joeyy and co for managing to make a 15 minute EP feel like the length of Soundtracks for the Blind. Also, the producer tags aren't funny when they're being played every five seconds. Please shut the fuck up Smokey.

Favourite Track: They Know
Least Favourite Tracks: Balayage, Sfogliatelle
Yikii - Chorion
70
5th January

Art Pop, Post-Industrial, Neoclassical Darkwave

A bit of an inconsistent album. The first half is incredibly creepy, and had the album maintained that level of quality then this would've probably become the first truly great album of 2024. The second half sadly falls off a cliff, with most of the songs being very boring and retreading the same steps that earlier tracks took.

Favourite Tracks: Heavenly Hell 天狱, Melinoë 墨利诺厄
Least Favourite Track: Mongolian Worm 蒙古蠕虫
Pile - Hot Air Balloon
65
5th January

Indie Rock, Art Rock

Nothing to say for this one. It's just kinda flaccid indie rock.

Favourite Track: Scaling Walls
Least Favourite Track: Exits Blocked
SPRINTS - Letter To Self
70
5th January

Post-Punk, Garage Punk

The critics' first big album of the year is pretty good, but also isn't really as great as the critics would have you think. While I do like the apocalyptic vibes of the music, I can't help but think that the vocalist is trying too hard sometimes. Maybe I'm just getting tired of post-punk.

Favourite Track: Can't Get Enough of It
Least Favourite Track: Up and Comer
Gumshoes - Cacophony
75
5th January

Indie Pop, Piano Rock

A bit of a quirky project, but also quite enjoyable. Quite a few great songs as well.

Favourite Tracks: Cacophony, The Real Thing, Last Living Kennedy
Least Favourite Track: The Puppet Waltz

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
Emperor X - Д​У​Ж​Е Ч​У​Д​О​В​Е Р​І​З​Д​В​О (VERY EXCELLENT CHRISTMAS)
50
5th January

Techno, Indie Pop, Indietronica

The fuck is this? This EP would be decent if it was just the last three songs, but the first five tracks are so obnoxiously awful I'm confused on how both groups ended up on the same project.

Favourite Track: Last Christmas
Least Favourite Track: ЛІТУЛ ДРУМАР ХЛОПЧИК
Kinoteki - Faith and the Vessel
55
5th January

UK Bass, Footwork Jungle

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Favourite Track: Nosebleed
Least Favourite Track: Bystander (Everyone's Dead)
999 Heartake Sabileye - LORD FORGIVE ME
70
5th January

Mashup, Experimental Hip Hop

A very inconsistent project, but one that levels out to being good overall. There are some really creative beats on this thing but some others are pretty boring.

Favourite Tracks: Go Home, One For My Girls, We Made It To Heaven
Least Favourite Tracks: Lamb of God
doefriends - I WANT TO LOVE AGAIN
65
5th January

Noise Pop

A decent album that got a bit stale by the end. Also would've preferred a bit more noise.

Favourite Track: How to Feel Alive
Least Favourite Track: Waiting
OG Keemo - Fieber
65
6th January

Chipmunk Soul, Hip Hop

Why the hell is this 37 minute album split across two discs? Anyways, Keemo is a bit of an uninteresting rapper and the production usually carries him, although even that gets a bit annoying at times. Still a decent project though.

Favourite Track: OKAY!
Least Favourite Track: Boiler
rubyred - business casual
65
6th January

Trap, Cloud Rap, Rage

Follows the same formula as most other albums from this niche: Two or three good songs buried under far too much slop that sounds the exact same.

Favourite Track: over here and over there
Least Favourite Track: imma be completely honest i couldn't tell the difference between most of these songs
Cannabis Rose - Try Nothing
70
7th January

Ambient Pop and a trillion other secondary genres

A sprawling 2 hour long album that probably shouldn't have been as long as it was. Granted, most of it is good, but it would've been far better had it been a bit shorter. It's solid.

Favourite Track: Try Nothing
Least Favourite Track: Neorealisma
Just Let Me Go - I.L.Y.S.M
60
7th January

Screamo, Midwest Emo

I just prefer my screamo vocalists to not sound like they're destroying their vocal chords every time they open their mouth. 'Tis all.

Favourite Track: But You Know.... Whatever
Least Favourite Track: Oh Man.... I'm The Man
dutchmasters - substation, my home. melancholy, my bride.
40
7th January

Screamo, Indietronica, Ambient

A goofy and annoying album that takes itself way too seriously for something with a trillion hyperpop-ass melodies and Amen Breaks. A terrible genre combo. Track three is certainly in contention for the worst song title of all time, even if its ironic.

Favourite Track: substation
Least Favourite Track: transitioning would have saved kurt cobain
yungatita - Shoelace & a Knot

7th January

Indie Rock

Not my thing

Favourite Track: Crack Your Jaw
Least Favourite Track: Poppy
Nic.k - THE LIGHT
60
8th January

Experimental Hip Hop

It's too loudly mastered. Obviously it's intended to be noisy but it gets to the point where it just hurts my ears to listen to. Cool production otherwise though

Favourite Track: THE LIGHT (TIL DEATH DO US PART)
Least Favourite Track: error_
Atomiste - The Spectator Project
70
8th January

Ambient Noise Wall

Cool brain tickling noises. Didn't need to be three hours though.

Favourite Track: We Flicker We Die (As the Memories of What Once Was Fade Away Forever, What Remains is Nothing But Tragically Expected Emptiness)
Least Favourite Track: The Escapeless Pull (Your Last Vision as the Swallower of Gods Brings You Towards the Final State of Existence)
65
8th January

Slam Death Metal, Ambient

The SDM songs are pretty cool! Shame the ambient is a bit boring. Would've liked this a lot more had it just been the first three songs.

Favourite Track: Yield Your Frozen Body
Least Favourite Track: The long goodbye​.​.​.
Zweihandr - zweihandr

Indietronica

A cute project that fucks itself over by being way too long.

Favourite Track: digital comfort
Least Favourite Track: sleep on the ground
Fiona's Spiral - Spacedust and Velvet Light

Noise Pop

It's a bit over the top and not really my thing.

Favourite Track: Love Me/Love You
Least Favourite Track: Sentient Backdrop
(Yo) - Hopetrain to Universe

8th January

Indie Rock, Art Rock

LET'S GO!!! First great album of 2024. South Korean artist (Yo) shows a promising future ahead of them with their debut album Hopetrain To Universe.

Favourite Track: 3:16, 희망열차를 타고 우주로 가요 (Hopetrain to Universe)
Least Favourite Track: 황금성 (Goldcastle)

NEW BEST ALBUM OF 2024
DJ BOOKER & NLE Choppa - The Chosen Ones
45
9th January

Southern Hip Hop, Trap

Am I missing something, or is this just not that bad? Well, it still IS quite crap, but the 30 user score confuses me a bit. Anyways the artwork itself just about describes why this thing sucks I doubt I need to explain why a trap album like this blows in 2024.

Favourite Track: Off The Muscle
Least Favourite Track: It's Up
TUPPERWAVE - Grocery Store Sunset

Vaporwave

Yeah... not a fan of the production. Music itself is a bit standard for vaporwave as well

K-Pop

It's.... fine? Not sure why it has a 54 user score. I could honestly see Now being a huge hit had it been released by a bigger artist.

Favourite Track: Now
Least Favourite Track: Cake
Zox The Fox - Kidney Disaster 4
20
9th January

Noise, Experimental, Electronic

An album that tries to be as bad as possible, and only ends up being a generic "bad" album. Harsh instrumentals, purposefully shit singing, and corny lyrics. I almost felt like giving it a good score out of spite. Fuck these albums. At least try to be bad in an interesting way.

Melodic Death Metal

I'm surprised it took me ten days to find a metal album... Shits good anyways. I like the vocals more than other DM albums I've listened to.

Favourite Track: Kitchen Gone
Least Favourite Track: Open Buffet Surgery
Lego Indiana Jones - Hope All Well
75
10th January

Piano Rock, Comedy Rock

I can't believe this goofy ass shitpost is actually really good. Lego Indiana Jones shows a promising debut that combines toungue-in-cheek songs with a couple of silly memes inbetween (alongside some random MBV cover). It's not taking itself seriously at all, yet that's just part of the fun.

Favourite Track: People Like You
