 - Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You

Big Thief on their White Album Beatles shit!

3 years and a global pandemic after they dropped two LP’s back to back, Big Thief return with a double LP titled “Dragon New Warm Mountain, I Believe In You” (that’s a mouthful) and it’s by far their best work to date.

This double album was recorded in 4 different locations; New York, California, Colorado and Arizona. Each new place they recorded songs at brought out a different side of the band and shows exactly how ... read more

no matter how optimistic and cheery this soundtrack sounds, it brings indefinite somber to my heart. nostalgia filled, one of the best video game soundtracks of all time. my childhood.

CRASH is a celebration of the old and the new, self expression and self destruction, but most of all, freedom!

Legendary pop icon and pioneer Charli XCX has just released her last major label album, CRASH, and it’s a commentary on how the major label manipulates you and the sadistic nature of pop music. Charli’s has always had a rocky relationship with her label, Atlantic Records. From forcing her aesthetic in her early career for Sucker, to blatantly leaking her music and ... read more

What makes this band so special?? London based rock group Black Country, New Road were formed in 2018. The band started growing a fanbase in the underground scene and released their first single “Athens, France” in January 2019. Their second single “Sunglasses” caught major critic attention and it grew the bands image even bigger. On the 5th of February, exactly 364 days before their second album, the bands debut album, For The First Time, was released. Every band ... read more

with some trimming of the tracklist, Utada Hikaru has come out with the smoothest alt-pop album of the year.

first review of 2022!!

fka twigs drops her new mixtape titled “CAPRISONGS” and i’ve got to say, i’m let down.

twigs is known for her mix of art-pop and electronic sounds in her music. she can do it quite flawlessly like we have seen on past works of hers like “LP1” and “M3LL155X”. on this project, which is her first since her 2019 magnum opus “MAGDALENE”, mixes a ton more genres like hip hop, r&b, drill and more. sadly, they all ... read more

Hiya there! I just dropped a new ambient house EP and wondering if you'd be interested in checking it out? Let me know if you would like a link to it ^^

i do understand what you're saying obviously, i feel the same way, we all have our biases, and obviously if Sufjan came out with some really boring and bad it would not be a 10, because there's always that little spark of genius in his works. i was more talking about all the different elements that go into ratings something. https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/70612-mount-eerie-a-crow-looked-at-me.php this for example. bad music, bland ass music. souless melodies. commendable subject matter obviously. and of course the microphones are amazing. take out the context and who's making it, my score would not be 30.

anyways is the debut bad as well? 😭

well, since u have 40 = meh on your profile, i would've thought u wouldn't consider it a bad album; but i get it, sometimes words can't accurately describe these arbitrary numbers we throw onto things we listen to... sometimes an album is bad and it has good songs, sometimes an album is bad and it has no good or bad songs, sometimes an album is bad and it only has bad songs. something i actually think about quite a bit, since all ratings from 10-40 just go out on a whim

i haven't listened to her debut, but my problem with this one is just how fucking messy it is. and a long mess at that. some good songs here and there, and it's not a bad album, but some of these songs are so cheesy. she's at her best when she's doing her post-hardcore thing, electronics and rapping sound bad

based rating on that haru album what did you dislike about it
