Haram is purposeful, relentless, mystifying and to some extent overindulgent. It serves as a representation of hope, a danger gauge during a time where sinking is far less stressful than hassling to hang on. A ray of light. Al’s appetite for grotesqueness and the unconventional is once again unmatched but for some reason on these cuts he absolutely spares no prisoners, the chops are lean, stingy and more malicious than ever, they’re served on a silver platter for Billy and Elucid to ... read more

Aldous is arguably one of the most elusive songwriters of this generation, her latest assemblage is a subtle but promising stride forward. Designer’s overall mellow, spatial and vibrant instrumental set up serves as an anchor for the poignant and dreamy lyricism throughout the record’s concise runtime. Ironically, from time to time, driven songwriters never shy away from indulging in minimalism thus forcing listeners to brace for maximal impact, to always expect the unexpected. Her ... read more

My surreal connection with this album dates back to a time when for me music was nothing but vibrations and an escape route to everything disappointing and uneasy, muffling out negativity and nudging me back onto the path of comfort and closure. Plastic Beach served as the soundtrack to my teenage years, offering a song to go with any mood and setting, at some point this was all I listened to for weeks at a time.

Hey there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hi, music is proof that gems in the form of art can be dug up from anything and everything a person experiences during a lifetime, I'm glad I'm here to witness it. I'm a poet who just so happens to enjoy reviewing music. (Thank you for 300 followers. I love this community)
