Black Country, New Road - For the first time
1.
96
This album I believe will stay album of the year for me. The wild and fucking amazing intrumentation that can change up any second is to die for, and the raw yet polished vocals pair with it so well. BCNR really did something incredible with this album.

Best Track(s): Opus, Science Fair
Worst: Athens, France (if I had to choose)
Weezer - OK Human
2.
86
While the song-writing can be mediocre at times, the production and the melancholic tone to the album makes it a pretty good album! (Edit: WOW IS THIS ONE A GROWER! A pretty good album turned into a PRETTY GREAT ONE!) (79 -> 86)

Best Track(s): Numbers, Grapes Of Wrath
Worst Track: Screens
Black Dresses - Forever In Your Heart
3.
85
What a vigorous album. Some moments can be so raw and harsh, and other times be so polished and beautiful. Captivating front to back.

Best Track(s): Gone In An Instant, Heaven
Worst Track: Perfect Teeth
Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
4.
84
I'm not really well versed in metal, like, at all. But I really loved the tempo switches on this album, and how INTENSE the album is as a whole.

Best Track: Coincidentia Oppositorum
Worst Track: Inexorably Ousted Sente
Keegan Isowe - AOIFE
5.
81
Keegan is a good friend of mine, and he also happened to drop a great debut project. With personal lyricism, and layered projection, this album really blew me away for a debut project. Especially coming from someone who is only FIFTEEN YEARS OLD.

Interview I did with Keegan: https://youtu.be/JRgcTmecZSU

Best Track(s): South, Spot
Worst Track: Aoife
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - CARNAGE
6.
81
When starting this album I thought it was a little underwhelming. But after the first three songs, I realized my mistake.

Best Track: White Elephant
Worst Track: Old Time
shame - Drunk Tank Pink
7.
80
A hard-hitting record that kept me pulled in all the way through. With immaculate songwriting and abrasive instrumentals. (Edit: GREW OFF A BIT, BUT I STILL REALLY LIKE IT!)

Best Track: Human, For A Minute
Worst Track: Great Dog
Julien Baker - Little Oblivions
8.
77
Wow this song-writing is beautiful, and I love the creative instrumentation that pairs with it. This didn't blow me away by any means but this is album is gorgeous nonetheless.

Best Track: Ringside
Worst Track: Song in E
Beach Bunny - Blame Game
9.
76
This EP has so much energy packed into 4 songs, I can't wait to check out their other stuff!

Best Track: Blame Game
Worst Track: Love Sick
TOBACCO - Fucked Up Friends 3
10.
76
Not as good as the original Fucked Up Friends, but I am still a SUCKER for these synths.

Best Track: Room with HBO
Worst Track: Sorority
Doc D - Planetory Destruction
11.
75
With heavy Quasimoto & DOOM influence. Logi... I mean "Doctor Destruction" drops a pretty good album here.

Best Track: Double Sample
Worst Track: Back to The Basement
slowthai - TYRON
12.
75
TYRON might be disappointing, but it still delivers with both bangers and solid emotional cuts.

Best Track: feel away
Worst Track: DEAD
JPEGMAFIA - EP2!
13.
74
Peggy continues his streak with refusing to MISS!

Best Track: FIX URSELF!
Worst Track: PANIC ROOM!
dltzk - Teen Week
14.
74
This is definitely the most personal hyperpop album I have heard. I just wish the record had a bit more to offer.

Best Track: beast friend
Worst Track: dysphoria
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams
15.
73
It gets kind of repetitive at times, but for a debut, this is pretty good and shows that Arlo Parks has a lot of potential.

Best Track: Caroline
Worst Track: Hope
Cactus Lee - Texas Music Forever
16.
71
I just don't like country music at all, but something about Cactus Lee is just appealing. I love the soothing vocals here. Solid as hell.

Best Track: Locked Up in Lockhart
Worst Track: If Rona Don't Do It (That Fast Livin' WIll)
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets - SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound
17.
70
This was really fun! I loved how in your face it was, but overall It's more of the same.

Best Track: Triplosaur
Worst Track: Mango Terrarium
The Weather Station - Ignorance
18.
68
It has well thought out lyrics, calming vocals, and jazzy instrumentation at times. It just failed to keep me fully attentive throughout the record.

Best Track: Wear
Worst Track: Heart
Steve Earle - J.T.
19.
64
This is really good for the genre, considering I really don't like Americana much. The song-writing is good as hell too.

Best Track: Last Words
Worst Track: Champagne Corolla
Kota the Friend - Lyrics to GO Vol. 2
20.
64
Inoffensive short & sweet rap album. Lacking originality, but It's perfect background music.

Best Track: Pomgranate
Worst Track: N/A
Madlib - Sound Ancestors
21.
62
Interesting jazzy/electronic instrumentals, but overall drawn-out.

Best Track: Road of the Lonely Ones
Worst Track: Riddim Chant
Mogwai - As The Love Continues
22.
60
This album is pretty detailed and has some nice songs. But, after the first couple tracks I was already getting kind of bored.

Best Track: Here We, Here We, Here We Go Forever
Worst Track: Pet Stains
Drake - Scary Hours 2
23.
58
Bare minimum from Drake. Meh.

Best Track: Wants and Needs
Worst Track: Lemon Pepper Freestyle
Viagra Boys - Welfare Jazz
24.
58
Cool synth/jazz feel they were going for, they just should have tried a little harder. This album just comes off as forgettable. The only thing that kept me listening is the pretty good production.

Best Track: Ain't Nice
Worst Track: In Spite of Ourselves
Ashnikko - DEMIDEVIL
25.
57
Catchy ✓
Empowering ✓
Good *Ehh*

Best Track: Daisy
Worst Track: Clitoris! The Musical
UnoTheActivist - Unoverse
26.
56
Nothing much to say. It has bangers but It's pretty boring.

Best Track: Die of Old Age
Worst Track: Capped Out
Matt Ox - UNORTHODOX
27.
54
Matt Ox can flow very well, and the production is actually pretty hypnotic and interesting. But, this album is just really messy and I think Matt Ox's voice can get kind of annoying at times.

Best Track: PSYCHE
Worst Track: WOP
Hayley Williams - FLOWERS for VASES / descansos
28.
52
How do you go from making some of the most fun music ever, to this? I mean it isn't bad, just so unbelievably mid.

Best Track: My Limb
Worst Track: I forgot, most tracks were equally mid
Sleaford Mods - Spare Ribs
29.
50
british

Best Track: british
Worst Track: british
Trippie Redd - NEON SHARK vs. Pegasus (Deluxe: Presented by Travis Barker)
30.
44
Consistently mid, but somehow Trippie made a better Rock album than Foo Fighters LMFAO!

Best Track: DEAD DESERT
Worst Track: FEMALE SHARK
Foo Fighters - Medicine at Midnight
31.
37
I forgot what this album sounds like.

Best Track: I forgot but I think the first one.
Worst Track: I simply don't know. Shame Shame?
Lil Skies - Unbothered
32.
33
Catchy flows here and there, that's it. This fucking sucks.

Best Track: Riot
Worst Track: *Couldn't pick there are a lot of options*
Pooh Shiesty - Shiesty Season
33.
32
I got to track 8 before turning it off... this was so fucking boring and the mixing was horrible. (Keep in mind this only has to do with the first 8 tracks)

Best Track: the one with 21 savage
Worst Track: Ugly
Florida Georgia Line - Life Rolls On
34.
14
The vocalist of Florida Georgia Line talks about his sex addiction, with an occasional trap beat.

Best Song: Countryside (it made me laugh so much)
Worst Song: Every song that didn't make me laugh
