AOTY 2023
Roger Waters - The Dark Side of the Moon Redux
Lil Yachty out here making a better Pink Floyd album in 2023 than a literal member of Pink Floyd
Swans - The Beggar
The Beggar Lover (Three) more like SWANS PARTY MODERN CLASSICS MEGAMIX 🗣️🗣️🚨🚨🎉🎉
椎名林檎 [Sheena Ringo] - 真夜中は純潔 (Mayonaka wa junketsu)
There are a lot of things that sucked about growing up in the United States. The police, government corruption, broken justice system, shitty healthcare, etc. But to me, the worst thing is that I wasn't instead growing up experiencing the absolute fucking tear Sheena Ringo was on between 1999 and 2009 first-hand.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Dragon
This song burned my house down
Kash Krabs & Oddwin - The Krusty Pack
The National - First Two Pages of Frankenstein
Reading the first two pages of Frankenstein over and over again for the duration of this album probably would have been time better spent
Caroline Polachek - Desire, I Want To Turn Into You
This one's called Bunny is a Rider and She Was Always Down by Interpolachek

I bet all of you who were complaining about the drawn-out roll-out for this are feeling pretty stupid right about now. “Desire, I Want to Turn Into You” was way more than worth the wait. My journey of becoming a fan of Caroline Polachek was a bit of a slow one. My first experience with her music was with “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings”, a track that became an instant favorite of mine. ... read more

Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
Seeing this performed live on the 25th anniversary tour was life changing
Textbook example of “this is a disappointing sophomore release after a 5 year wait and I didn’t even listen to the debut”
Kanye West - Graduation
Kanye Has Unmade Graduation
Pixies - Doggerel
Black Francis really said "Don't like to fight, don't like to spit, don't like a steak with no pepper on it" and "Make like a cock and cock-a-doodle-do make like I'm gonna make love to you" in the same song and expected us not to notice
The Mars Volta - The Mars Volta
Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala in 2017: Wanna see us disappoint our fans with a bad comeback album?
Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala in 2022: Wanna see us do it again?
This time my score is absolutely a coincidence
Drake -  Honestly, Nevermind
I’m left here wondering if the “This chopper came with a pussy” line on Jimmy Cooks was intentional or the result of lazy ass ad-libbing
RIP Julee Cruise

It's obviously nearly impossible to not talk about Twin Peaks when discussing "Floating Into the Night" especially given that all of its lyrics are written by David Lynch and the music's all Angelo Badalamenti's doing. The songs off the album that do appear within the show are naturally my favorites because they have unforgettable scenes tied to them. The ones that don't obviously don't have that advantage, but they are great on their own and contribute to the album ... read more

Arcade Fire - WE
Arcade Fire's suck arc is over thankfully but they've immediately followed it up with the start of their ZZZ.... arc
Ted Nugent - Detroit Muscle
When your gun doesn't even make you feel safe enough so you have to make your music safe too
PJ Harvey - Dry
Birthday review #25

So I've done 25 of these huh? Fitting that I reach a quarter-ways to 100 of these things with another PJ Harvey review. It is my duty after all, being the biggest PJ fan on AOTY (that I'm aware of) to cover Dry as it turns 30 (!) today. Dry? But she's submerged in water on the back cover what the FU- oh so it's named that because there are no effects used on anything on the record? That's pretty cool. Dry is not how I would describe the music on this album, however. It's ... read more

Kid Rock - Bad Reputation
You know an album is bad when you give it a 6 and the average goes up
Jenny Hval - Classic Objects
I think I have a thing for Norwegian female pop singers
