Faye Webster - I Know I'm Funny haha
a topic of discussion about faye webster’s fourth album title - ‘i know i’m funny haha’ - is why webster included the “haha”. the term’s inclusion can be a subject of debate, as its necessity seems arguable. as it turns out, this "haha" term’s use proves completely essential in the context of the title track; when webster dryly wavers over the “haha”, there’s a slight twinge; suddenly the whole song gets turned around: ... read more

Tennis - Swimmer
‘swimmer’ thrives profoundly, as tennis form inclusive and welcoming music - timeless art - all while putting together this absolute classic. ‘swimmer’, as a project, delivers in detailed sense that many works merely promise; this album peacefully presents its own comforting style: rather than attempting to evoke (specific emotions from listeners), ‘swimmer’ instead offers. it offers the real, truthful feelings of creators alaina moore and patrick riley. ... read more
Vince Staples - Vince Staples
at its core, ‘vince staples’ deals with choices. the album is a reflection on grey areas and how vince chooses to handle his life.

whether a choice is about thugging, a production decision, showing new areas and emotions, being in the streets, etc. in any case, staples’ flattened attitude is devastatingly candid.

a previously hidden part of vince staples is not only present, it is at the forefront of the record. a new side of vince is shown via his introspective lyrics and ... read more

Rostam - Changephobia
the dreaminess present throughout this project is so diminished it almost appears drab. ‘changephobia’ feels faded throughout. this airy, arid sound makes the album feel impressively desolate at many points. a softer, and often times slower, version of rostam’s skilled production shows throughout his second solo record.

on ‘changephobia’, rostam uses different sounds than his earlier discographical entries, and he completely succeeds at creating fresh, hushed, ... read more

Tyler, The Creator - CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST
for 'call me if you get lost’, tyler okonma frames his own perspective into an out-of-bounds, disparate product. tyler crafts against conventions, and his creations flourish as result.

‘call me if you get lost’ is tyler’s best rap album yet; while it is not street, not grimey, and it does not usually sound “hard”, ‘call me if you get lost’ may be tyler’s most efficient work thus far.

tyler projects typically have common denominators: each ... read more

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Butterfly 3000
my expectations for king gizzard and the lizard wizard are high and wide, yet i was completely shocked to hear their new endeavor ‘butterfly 3000’. i am taken aback by this album. this work is one of, if not the singular, most accessible album by king gizzard and the lizard wizard.

the surprise of ‘butterfly 3000’ brings one to a state of fascination. the group’s made the bold choice to not releasing any singles on gizz’s most poppy, single ready album. ... read more

Hi! I'm making my first community list to celebrate my achievement of 100 followers. I was wondering what your 3 most underrated albums of all time and 3 most overrated albums of all time.

I have 53 (could change) AOTY users in this list. I also ask that you please give 1 album or artist recommendation. I will shout you when then the list is complete.
hey jackson! 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?
Hi Jackson! I would love to know your thoughts on my band's new live singles. https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/720310-skin-theory-libertine-frying-pan.php

Yo Jackson! I’ve been getting inspiration to make another community list in these past few days, and I’ve just thought of a question that kind of interested me to see people’s choices; what’s a song you know that sounds super happy but is actually sad, due to lyrical content and/or backstory? Feel free to ignore if you’re not interested in answering, but make sure to keep your selections limited to 1 or 2 picks if you do. Reasonings are optional :)
Hey!! I made a list containing the highest user rated tracks on this site, whether they be singles or just regular tracks off an album. Feel free to check it out! :)

And if you know of any tracks rated 98 or higher with 100 people or more having rated it, then comment a recommendation. I think it would be interesting to find out which songs are the highest rated by users on this site.
