Pinned Review

☆☆☆☆ 1/2

I am now changing my most anticipated album of all time from Song Machine Season 1.... to Season 2.

And yea this album is exactly what I've wanted since The Now Now happened. Now that album looks like a joke doesn't it?

The fact that I can still heavily praise this band as I'm about to do now, after 22 whole years of them being in the industry, means a lot. The fact that they've retained that brilliant collaborative spirit for so long, or how they've continued to evolve ... read more

"At times I feel that I may be a very cold and unemotional person and at times I wish that I wasn't so mentally vulnerable. I do tend to stand on the outside sometimes."

- David Bowie, 1973

Three records into his prime and we've arrived at yet another dimension of Bowie's artistic identity. What haunts this album's musicality are the evocative piano melodies as well as the electrifying guitar riffs to decapitate his listener's heads, and if you thought Bowie was ... read more

Christopher Wallace deserves every drop of praise he can get for this record alone, one of the strongest debut albums of its era is not only what birthed a cultural titan in the music industry but it accomplished shaping and influencing the east-coast hip-hop scene in a way very few other full-length releases from that region would amount to.

"Are you ready for your rap lessons?"

JAY-Z breathes heavily.

Big Boi and André 3000 gulp.

Kendrick Lamar nods nervously.

Kanye West sighs.

"Yes, Waka Flocka Flame," they all say in unison.

Lupe's albums are similar to the likes of Kendrick's in the sense that you haven't really listened to their music unless you've heard it more than once, that statement applies to even one of his simplest and far less conceptual albums to date; "Food & Liquor". Other than being a fun, excellently produced and beautifully cohesive body of work... with a little more focus one would be blown away by the metaphors Lupe uses to disguise his profound messages, not to ... read more

Kill Bill's deep, stark delivery heightened by his confidence contrasts so well with Rav's child-like cadence and self-destructive tendencies. Both of them fly so well over these cloudy, abstract beats. Underrated duo, underrated chemistry. One of the best Hip-Hop albums of 2019.

Album covers often get a lot of attention, sometimes more than the music itself but there's one aspect to albums that is very often overlooked: the title. The title often sets the mood and energy of the album, or is memorable enough to stick with you, but seldom gets credit for doing so. Anyways, this leads into a question I have (for a list): what's your favourite album title of all time?

Some artists I'd love to see featured on season 2: Julian Casablancas, Tyler The Creator, Thom Yorke, Frank Ocean, glass beach, and Tame Impala

Do you have any tips for upcoming reviewers on this site for making reviews? It’s for a list (I technically made it long time ago, but it was deleted on my old account, so I decided to remake it)

What's your favorite Wu-Tang album (solo projects included)
Nov 6, 2020

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))
