"Listen, this is Lou's greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up." - David Bowie

Lou Reed's misunderstood masterpiece. Lulu hasn't even been out for a full decade yet, and already you can see this album on worst of all time lists. There hasn't been many albums released last decade that has been as panned, hated, and memed as Lulu. But does this album really deserve that?

There's obviously a multitude of ... read more

We're getting closer to masterpiece territory now...

A complete re-recording of the Araby Bazaar album which I had already considered to be the best they've done yet, but this time all acoustic. And honestly, even though there are still parts that I miss (in particular that extended instrumental section on Bullingdon Boy, although I do actually like this acoustic version better if I'm honest), the album as a whole is surprisingly better. The more stripped-back sound lets the songs breathe ... read more

Before My Bloody Valentine were the masters of shoegaze that we all know them as, they were an average gothic post-punk band with noisy albeit derivative and uninteresting instrumentals and a vocalist who tries his hardest to mimic every good post-punk singer before him but lacks all the personality and charm that made those singers so great.

Honestly, I do have to wonder if this is another debut album that suffers from the "Radiohead effect", where everything released after their ... read more

One of those albums that you can tell with certainty could have been one last masterpiece had Miles been alive to properly complete the album himself. His trumpet playing is fantastic all throughout, proving that even up until the last few months of his life he really was one of the greatest trumpet players to ever live. But the biggest problem with this album instantly removes any and all potential that this could have had, that being Easy Mo Bee on rapping and producing duty. The beats are ... read more

I have come to the realization that I actually really enjoy Miles' '80s output, and now I'm really confused and scared.

I'm gonna be honest, when I started my Miles Davis binge, I was a lot more curious about his widely detested '80s material than all of those classics that I had yet to hear. Maybe it was because I had already heard his three most renowned works when I started and was also familiar with a few other records, but even so, you'd think that I would be a bit more interested in his ... read more

We were right on the verge of greatness...

In terms of technicality and aesthetic, this is objectively Doom's best album yet. And even though I still personally prefer the Black Album, this is still easily up there as one of his best. But I'd be lying if I said I was fully enthralled with what we were given. While I do actually like a lot of this album, with tracks like Anarchy and If easily being some of Doom's best thus far, there's still quite a bit of this album that I find myself not ... read more

The vocals are honestly sadistic

Kinda relieved that I wasn't the only one who had to sit through the torturous MBV's debut, even if u enjoyed it a bit more than I did.

Hello 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!
