Nicole Dollanganger - Married in Mount Airy
76
Camping by a gothic castle on a hill, overlooking the neon glow of the big city. Much better than letting the proverbial twat with the guitar play wonderwall.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again - I Rest My Case
51
First generic 20 track stream fodder trap album of the year down.

Few decent bops on here but aside from those this is just one long sound. TBH, this is one of those types of albums I usually rate well in the red for being about 70 minutes long. So props and points for keeping the runtime down.

Iggy Pop - EVERY LOSER
50
There's a lot of personality and character here and it's rare I'll score something with those qualities under 50. Sure, there's nothing boundary pushing or particularly ear-catching about what Iggy's making these days (Other than his pretty cool collab with Underworld a few years back) but the guy has every right to keep on bellowing these old school punk tunes out of those crude and crass vocal chords while they're still good for it.

I was genuinely born in the same shitty town as Calvin Harris so if there's ONE person he aint fooling...

The Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free
99
A Grand Don't Come for Free really is, narratively, a musical experience like no other, and probably the most 'cinematic' album I'll ever listen to. Evidentially, Skinner has a very love it or hate it vocal style and I really do respect the way this album confuses Americans en masse. This is one of the first of those 'Propa British' albums I ever listened to and from then onward this album has had a pretty big role in my life.

Strangely, There's a few songs on here that I don't LOVE. An ... read more

My 15 yo nephew is really into 21 Pilots but scoffs at everything I listen to (sigh)... Should I give Trench a try in an attempt to bridge the gap? lol

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

About

I'll tend to rate an album after first impression then from there let that rating evolve as I listen to the album more. I wont review an album until I'm happy that my rating is pretty much settled in its final destination, however long that may take lol!
