Crying. I love him so much, this is one of my favorite songs he's done. Gives me really strong Candy May vibes.

Beach House are so insanely consistent. Being a fan of theirs is so rewarding because they just never let us down. What a great group of tracks, I cannot wait for the whole album. 9/10

Wow, who woulda thought Knocked Loose would come through with this awesome of an EP out of nowhere. This is reminding me why metalcore was all I listened to in High School lol.

It's heavy and brutal, but I personally get bored pretty quickly with it....

Man, this is so good. This album is mighty yet intimate, filled to the brim with stunning melodies and that amazing sweetly-sad quality that a great Sufjan track has. It's awesome to get this killer of a record from him after his last one was a bit of a let down.

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do

Hey, Laz, it's me again! I stumbled on this and thought you might get a kick out of it. It's kinda mathy emo-core/post-hardcore. The harsh vocals took a bit of getting used to (they're very unpolished LOL) but otherwise, the whole album kinda rips:

Not sure what I'm gonna rate it yet, but thought you might be interested in checking this one out!

Yo Laz! Comin' in with a hot recommendation for you- give this a spin or two. I think you might dig it!

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏

What is your favorite album of the year 1970, and could I get a few words on your thoughts on that album!?

{I’m going to be doing a series of lists where I go through AOTYs favorite albums of every year since 1970 and this is the first part of that ultimate goal!!}

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 22, 2020
Hell yeah. I saw your Spotify link and had it saved for later listening. I’ll give your lists a look for sure!

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!

Still dealing with mental health issues, so I'm not getting out nearly as many reviews as I used to.
