 - OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES NON-STOP REMIX ALBUM
85
The Faceshopping Money Mix is unbelievable, damn. This amounts to far more than just a cobbled together remix album filled with predictable remixes, it's a whole different experience than the original album. Hell it even flows excellently, the sequencing is really good lol. Don't let the length or any pre-conceived expectations about the nature of remix albums discourage you, this is dystopian and otherworldly and absolutely worth anyone's time.
 - Ants From Up There

There are moments on here that for me can only be described as transcendental. Might be, uh, a bit early to predict, but I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up sitting at the top of my 20's decade list

 - Renaissance Kings

This album really impressed me, the beats constructed by the Snowgoons are all great and there's an impressive variation of sounds across the tracklist. The guest rappers, while I am unfamiliar with many, deliver quality verses with surprising consistency, although there are definitely some bad or mediocre verses sprinkled throughout, featured on tracks such as "Grind Mode Cypher". Snowgoons' "Renaissance Kings" is also generally pretty top-heavy, with most of its best cuts ... read more

You would definitely love his other works if you're into the more electronic sound that he used on the opening track he mainly uses electronic sounds for his albums its just that the album you listened to was kinda the exception the prime example for the album that uses electronic sounds is "Siren" you can check that out if you want, personally though I'm not a big fan of his other work since I don't really get the same kick that I do from Technique of Relief but I do still enjoy a couple of songs from him.

In any case thank you for giving in to my request and taking the time to listen to the album and I'm really really happy that you enjoyed it and hopefully it grow on you a ton as it did for me, this man seems to be an unknown in AOTY so I wanna get people in the website to at least listen to an album of his, I really think his music would be a staple in AOTY if more people rated his music.

Well I was gonna ask you what u think of the project since based on your highest rated album you seem like the type of person that is big on production, but since you haven't heard it yet I recommend that you listen to it as soon as possible I promise you won't regret it it's a magical experience although I'm very biased since it's my favorite album of all time at least for now.

Oh, thanks, I appreciate it! I always found learning music's context and creation helps flesh out the listening experience for me, it's like a mix of art, engineering, history, and networking. Loved taking a peak at your ratings btw, you have good taste!

I have a relatively broad music taste and love to explore new styles and genres, although I tend to gravitate towards hip-hop and the hyperpop scene
