Andy Stott is... frustrating to me. I absolutely love the dude's sound- his brand of chilling nocturnal electronic is totally my thing. And yet, he has no single project I've given above a 7. This guy SHOULD be dropping 8s and 9s but every record or ep just comes up a bit short. Somethings not quite working on a creative level and I can't figure out what it is. I still always look forward to what he does because I do enjoy a good bit of his material. Hopefully one day he'll release something ... read more

Great random recommendation from an IRL friend. Really sticky emo hooks all over this thing I wanna scream at the top of my lungs while crying probably lol.

Really great stuff here. I don't think adding metal into the mix necessarily makes this thing all that boundary pushing, a lot of it does sound like standard post rock. BUT- I love standard post rock lol and this record is just very consistent. I don't think any song on here is like a top 10 track of the year for me but every moment is compelling. This is the kind of record I just spin over and over again because it's perfect for when I'm working on something. Looking forward to trying their ... read more

This is a unique ride, I'm enjoying it. Dropping a basic 8 on it right now but my score on this thing has varied wildly in my head from like a strong 6 all the way up to a light 9. There's some detours I'm not as crazy about but the record as a whole I'm having a lot of fun with overall.

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!

thank you for your pick man (:

So let’s say, hypothetically you were up at 3am on a rainy night and it’s really quiet. What album would you proceed to put on for your 3am sad session?
and yeah this is for a list

Hey I’m sorry if this is annoying but me and my friends attempted to make a few ambient songs and we just uploaded our first song to Soundcloud! We would really appreciate it if you could give it a listen! Sorry for self promotion but we’re really looking for feedback - it’s only 90 seconds long :)
