OUT OF MY COMFORT-ZONE - CHALLENGE
DAY 17
[Genre(s): Alternative R&B]

London-based artist Sampha released his debut album 'Process' in February of 2017. Known for lending his talents to artist like Drake on 'More Life', SBTRKT on his self-titled and many more artists from his home-country and across the world. Although, I found him through a video on 88rising where Lil Yachty and Joji discuss what they were listening to, but I wasn't really interested at the time. So when I recently ... read more

CATCHING UP CHALLENGE of 2021 #3

I was scrolling through Spotify and I found myself on Freddie Gibbs' artist page. I scrolled down to features, because he hasn't had any bad features as far as I know. So, I eventually checked out 'GLIMPSE' by JAHMED and I was immediately hooked. This guy's voice was intoxicating and I needed to listen to more of his music. Another track that completely hooked me on JAHMED's sound was ACTUP, a collaboration with Party Favor, which has an amazing hip-hop and ... read more

CATCHING UP CHALLENGE of 2021 #2

slowthai has always been one of the only UK-rappers I really love, ever since the release of ‘Psycho’ with one of my favourite rappers, Denzel Curry. The pure energy and horror on that single was something I had never experienced. I absolutely loved his voice and I really wanted to check out more of his stuff. ‘Nothing Great About Britain’ was good, but it never emulated that same energy he had on Psycho, so when the ‘TYRON’ ... read more

CATCHING UP CHALLENGE of 2021 #1

Yo! I’m back lol, if u want to know what I have been doing, read the little statement I put all the way down in this review! But anyway, Imma review the debut EP, Anonymous, from the new alt-rock and rap-duo, Paris Texas.

The main reason I found out about these guys is their debut-single “HEAVY METAL”, which surprised me with the heavy alt-rock influenced fusion between hip-hop and hard rock. And ever since, I had them on my radar and ... read more

Rising Indie-Pop star BENEE is here with her debut full-length album and oh boy, is it pretty good. Knowing her only through Supalonely and her feature on Afterthought by Joji, I was pretty excited for a project from her. She has this very sweet and tender voice that’s very nice to listen too. So, I was very happy to check this debut.

Did it disappoint? Hell nah! Could it be better? Yes probably. BENEE has this very distinct indie-pop style that sometimes fuses with a little bit of ... read more

Thank your for participating in the list! Here is the link: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/riskr/list/34227/aotys-favorite-album-closers/
Jan 5, 2021
The final song of an album is one of the most important things to it. To make you feel satisfied, an album closer has to look at everything an album has done and say, "Hey, how am I going to make a satisfying ending to this story?" Album closers are incredibly hard to execute and many don't feel how they should. It takes a lot of talent for an artist to wrap up their own piece of work effectively and make a listener feel satisfied.

Which leads me to my question: what is your favorite album closer/finale of all time and why?

Yo! I just dropped both my EP and Album/(LP) lists just a bit after the new year began! I plan to add a description for each entry on both lists at some point, but it’s essentially all there! Thanks in advance for considering!
Dec 20, 2020
Let me know when/if you drop an AOTY list! I’d love to look through what albums you, and others, enjoyed the most this year. If you already posted one then I’ll give it a look ASAP.

I plan on dropping mine at the very end of the year (both EPOTY and (LP)AOTY lists) and would prefer any feedback on them!

About

Hii,
I really love music and I always have a opinion about the projects I listen to, so I'll rate and review them.

How I rate projects:

AMAZING TRACKS = 5/5

GREAT TRACKS = 4/5

GOOD TRACKS = 3/5

AVERAGE TRACKS = 2/5

NOT GOOD TRACKS = 1/5

TRASH TRACKS (I only use this category if it's needed)= 0/5

Then I count all the points and use this calculation:

points : maximum points x 9 + 1 = ?/100
