Playboi Carti is the only artist who's defining work has never been released. His leaks from 2019, nearly 150 songs, comprise the most distilled version of him as an artist thus far. Songs like Goku, Skeletons, Cancun and Molly are dreamy, melodic, video-game sugar highs that make Die Lit seem trivial. Even more insanely, Carti's best song of all time, Kid Cudi, isn't even a real song! It's a rearranged fan edit of a Yung Nudy throwaway, Pissy Pamper, incorporating foraged verses from Lil Uzi ... read more

Laundry list of things I loved about The Life of Pierre 5:

First impressions are key when it comes to albums. A good opener can really open your eyes and let the listener know what is in store for them, a bad opener, on the other hand, can put a bad taste in the listener's mouth and ruin the experience for them.

Which brings me to my question for my list: What is your favorite album opener of all time and why? (only choose one, and please give the artist, album, and song name)

I find the phrase "anarchism rules" to be humorously paradoxical, and I appreciate the solidarity :)

Heard you're doing a Yo La Tengo discography exploration. They're one of my favorites, and I've recently been filling in some long overdue reviews for their stuff, too. Looking forward to reading your thoughts!
