A fairly strong teaser, but the production on some of these tracks leaves a bit to be desired here compared to what Mavi brought on his breakout tape. Methods is hard though.

A wonderfully creative piece that stems from fragments of various phone calls over some stunning ambiance. There's a story being told here - albeit an intentionally disjointed one - through a therapy session, of sorts; the sounds of typing throughout the first few minutes of this project can't help but remind me of a psychologist documenting their patient's situation. Ulla continues to impress me with much of what they do.

I'm not sure if this tops his project with The Historian for me, but Jay brings his A-game on a great solo effort; here's hoping this a good sign for another great year for him.

Loathe's ventured into some ambient soundscapes on last year's fantastic 'I Let It in and It Took Everything', and this side of the band is explored throughout this entire release. Whilst there are certainly some interesting textures at play here, I find them less effective on this release due to the lack of contrast between each song relative to what was found on their 2020 effort (going from metalcore to space wind-type pads).

This album lacks the cohesion created by totally-seamless-absolutely-mindfuckingly-beautiful-song-to-song transitions that are so prevalent amongst other drone albums, but it more than makes up for it when you look at the project through a slightly grander scope. Each track on Repetition Hymns strikes me as a vignette of a time or emotion that is distant from another, but as the album progresses you'll start to hear these themes overlap through familiar sounds and passages.

Hey, I heard from some other fellow AOTY users just now about tasteful.reviews. Wasn't able to pre-register, but just came by to show some of my support and wish you the best of luck for such an ambitious project! I'm sure it'll turn out very successful and I'm looking forward to it! :D

I'm fine. Still unwell, but could be worse. I might be off Twitter for a bit longer than planned, depending on how I feel. Just know Jesus Is King talk is gonna be all I see, which is going to get boring real quick, especially cos the album wasn't that good anyway. Also, I just signed up there.
