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.

Not only does it excel musically, it's powerful themes and atmospheric ... read more

Okay, I like this a lot. Lana plays it quite safe here, opting for the infectious, slow country pop ballad aesthetic whilst bearing commercial charts in mind with that tsunami she spewed for a chorus, bloody hell did she crush that! If she'd steered the song as a whole in a more experimental direction I've no doubt the effectiveness of this record would've been increased tenfold. Lukewarm for me.

Brief but to the point. Daytona is proof that a "quality over quantity" mindset is what separates the best from the rest. Push glides over Ye instrumentals effortlessly, dishing out coke wraps with an ounce of bitterness and unbelievable candor. The air tight bars are among some of the coldest to make it out that year, I could even go as far as saying of the last decade. Ye's experience behind the boards and sampling machine was an integral contributor to the shrewdness of this modern ... read more

One of my favourite singles of the year, if SZA releases an album full of tracks this serene and otherworldly I think I might lose it. This is amazing

*This is more like an instruction rather than a review*

Bro, don't try to be edgy. If you've given this a score below 9 you can't be trusted, go debate your gecko. Yes I'm biased but if shit hits the fan?

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!
