Though I haven’t had the same experience growing up listening to DOOM’s music as a lot of others, there hasn’t been a single moment when listening to any of his albums/songs where I haven’t been blown away by the sheer magnetic energy that he just effortlessly conjures up on every verse he lays down. From the magic of Madvillainy, to his features for the likes of Gorillaz among others to his solo works like MM…. Food and, this album. His debut, Operation: ... read more

Funky and fast paced as Jazz can be, Motion is a metropolitan rush of strings, sax and drums that sucks you in to its busy whirlwind with ease.

Standout: You’d be so nice to come home to
Favs: I remember you, I’ll remember april
least fav: Foolin’ myself

My first intro to this band! Decently renowned for their uncompromising blend of noise, drone and rock, this album is noisy and abrasive at some points, and then so sparse and empty at other points. It’s a stark contrast, and it works damn well for me. Excited to listen to their other works!

Standout: The GeroGerigegege
Favs: Tokyo - Sea of Losers/Donors for USA, Final Tuning
Least fav: Out of Saiga

Despite there clearly being a whole myriad of sounds and instruments being used, the low fidelity and the insane compression just makes it become one desolate wall of cold, brittle sound. The manic vocals, and unsettling violins that pop in the background also add to this desolate and nightmarish soundscape cacophony to deliver one of the most hellish listens I’ve had in a while. I loved last years Im Wald a lot, and this might be even better! Truly catastrophic.

Standout: gefrorener ... read more

This is such an odd sounding album. The fragmented and eclectic beats, and the weary sounding spoken word passages create a charged, yet somewhat subdued atmosphere. And yet despite that, this album packs a punch. Great stuff.

Standout: Touch
Favs: Livery, Grey matter, Heaven don’t want me and Hell’s afraid I’ll take over, In a world of U, Walk of exodus, Euphoric rangers
Least fav: Mystic sheep drink electric tea

Contemporary classical can be somewhat hit or miss with me, but this is just so extravagant and lushly performed that a bulk of this leaves me in awe at its pure majestic beauty. It reminds me of the days when I worked in a garden centre and they played very mystical music for the customers. Soothing, but somewhat cathartic in equal measure.

Standout: Spring Cantata: Op.20
favs: Mystic circles of the young girls, Sacrificial dance, The Augurs of Spring - Dances of the young girls, The ... read more

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

Hi man! So, this year I’ll be hosting the Top 50 Albums of 2020 List Aggregate for users! The goal of this list is to achieve a concise and compact collection of the AOTY community’s favorite albums of 2020! Like last year, I’ll be choosing from 50 users’ lists to contribute.

That’s where you come in.

To guarantee your spot on the list, please let me know that you would like to be included. There are limited spots! That being said, to be included, you must...
* Have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from the year 2020.
* Have made a ranked list of those albums by around Christmas (the last Friday of the year).

Remember, you can only be included if you have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from this year. If you only have a top 40, you won’t be accepted, unfortunately. If you have more than 50, that’s great! I’ll just be referencing your Top 50 for this project (I will peep the rest of your ratings just for fun).

Let me know! Happy listening friend!
