Scorpions - Love at First Sting
Scorpions' magnum-opus is truly a hard rock classic packed with both radio hits and underground gems alike in a very tight 40-minute package. Meine's vocals are in peak German-metalhead form here, and the instrumentation is very diverse and well-arranged. The closer, "Still Loving You", is arguably the group's best track and absolutely kills as a closer. That long build-up and the eponymous phrase not appearing until the outro-chorus is brilliantly cathartic. Six and a half-minute ... read more
Tyler Childers - Rustin' in the Rain
For Childers' fans (true fans, not tiktok fans), this album is sort of a disappointment. All but one of these tracks (Luke 2:8-10) had long been familiar with fans in the form of live performances and live recordings on youtube. In fact, I have been listening to downloaded live versions of the title track, "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Percheron Mules", and "Space and Time" for about a year now. While it's nice to have clean, studio recordings of these ... read more
Zach Bryan - Zach Bryan
Bryan remains one of country music's most introspective songwriters, although that creative approach is limited in his strictly traditional sound.
Hozier - Unreal Unearth
Hozier delivers well on his third album; a great improvement upon his prior release but still contains too many holes to surpass his immaculate debut.
Galantis - Church
An incredibly outdated approach to a genre that's evolved wayyyy beyond the need for artists like Galantis.


great pick! Hecker is absolutely one of the goats. i highly recommend you look into more of his stuff if you haven't already. "Radio Amor" in particular is fantastic and i've found works very well for studying. thanks for the reply! i will get back to you once the list is complete :]
hey braden! to celebrate 555 followers i'm making my first community list and my question, if you'd like to participate, is this: what is your favorite project to study/work to?
Thanks for following
thanks for the follow boy!
Hey Braden!!! To celebrate me now having 400 albums rated and reviewed I'm gonna be putting together a community list and I of course need your help. It'd mean so much to me if you could help.

Whats a song that makes you have the feeling of ascending into a into another world or into space, a song that makes you feel like you have left your body and you are inside of the music. I'll start first! MY EYES off of Travis Scott's new album 100% does that for me.

Also feel free to give an explanation for your choice, Thank you!
Hey followers. Tell me, what is your favorite song of all time? Only 1!!! I know it’s difficult, but try. I’ll make a playlist, listen to all of them, and rank them. Just write YOUR song in my shout box, thanks!!!!!
Hi! I'm making a community list for the first time on here. I was wondering what your 5 favorite albums from this year and 5 least favorite albums from this year are so far. You can write little blurbs for your top album if you feel like it, I'm probably gonna pick the best ones for each album.
Hey Braden! I hate promoting things but this occasion is really special! I recently hit 500 legends following me! So, to celebrate that milestone I decided to put together my first community list from all of those who supported me along the way!

I wasn't sure what to do as pretty much everything has already been done, so I decided on this:

Imagine you're in an apocalypse, the whole world has gone to peril and you can only play one special song before everything perishes, what song are you picking and why? It doesn't need to be just one song, it can be a variety of songs if you can't choose just one.

I’ll compile everyone’s results over the next few days and I’ll let you know once the list is ready!

Thank you for your time! if you don't want to participate then ignore this message :)
Yo Braden! Sorry if I'm bothering you right now, but I thinking of a 1,000 followers special and I decided to create my first-ever AOTY community list featuring some of my followers and some of the most well-known users on this site. The catch is that the list won't focus on music but rather on a personal trait. All you have to do is list your favorite character from any kind of media (video games, films, television episodes, books, you name it!) and explain why you enjoy them so much. The explanation doesn't have to be lengthy; you only need to make sure you list the character's name and where there from. Thanks in advance and I appreciate the fact that you took you time to read this and reply if you do!
Yo Braden. For a list, I’d like for you to give me a word. Any word at all. That’s literally it.
