This is the debut album Chicago born artist, activist and poet, Noname. Since her stunning 2016 mixtape ‘Telefone’, a lot has been upgraded in her music, but many of her music’s best aspects remain. Noname’s jazz influenced style makes for an amazing listen. This time round though her instrumentals take on a more acoustic style with tracks ranging from a lush string arrangement in ‘Window’ to a funk infused bass guitar and drums cut on ... read more

In For All We Know, Nao blended together synth-pop, rnb and funk to make a sound I haven’t heard around much. She takes a turn away from that toward a more pop-like sound on Saturn. Her vocals are flawless throughout this, her range is INSANE. However, this whole album kind of feels like the slow song section at the end of an album. It’s just all a bit slow and it looses a bit of the character from her previous album. Also I feel like she blended into the mix a bit, her vocals never ... read more

Summer Listening Series: #19
2pac is one of the first rappers that comes to mind when you think of the 90s, but unlike many others 2pac doesn’t have a definitive album that’s credited as their best project and one of the best hip hop albums of all time. When picking a 2pac album to put in this series I ended up choosing this one simply because it had the highest user score. Having now listened to the album, that makes sense. All these tracks are good but not much ties them together, ... read more

Some really nice 90s and modern style stuff on this, Camille is a good lyricist and storyteller. Jazz influences come through too, the trumpet in ‘Slip Away’ is smooth asf. This is a really solid LP, if not a bit long, with a good set of features too.
Favourite track: São Paulo

I was intrigued by the album cover to listen to this album. I really like it and I think it’s kinda a perfect representation of the album. A bit of everything, everywhere but it just works. Each track has got a mix of layers percussion and electronic instruments, and no matter what she does with them it just seems to work perfectly. My only issue with this album is I found some of the hooks a bit annoying after a while.
Favourite track: Amazon

Saw her live today, her energy in stage is amazing. It was only a small crowd but it was a lot of fun. There isn’t a song on this EP that I don’t like and I can’t wait for her next (hopefully soon). Big love to Nayana IZ
Favourite track: WALKING

Sempiternal by Bring Me the Horizon

I think that album for me would be Cosmonautica by Erik Urano and Zar1. It made me rediscover the greatness of underground music

The album that changed my music taste was definitely Madvillainy. I really started to diversify what and who I listened to after that and it ultimately led to me being as invested in music as I am now. Also sorry for the late response

My album to change a music taste, it changed to me at least, its El camino de la serpiente by Hijos de las Hojas. Because its something so absimally different inside the hispanic rap. Including a typical regional instrumentation of the Andes, something never use it before on that genre. In addition to its strong lyrics committed to rap awareness and environmental preservation, ultimately something atypical for the genre. Thanks for including me on your list by the way. I hope I have given a good contribution since this is one of the albums that has changed my life. And sorry by the late.

Hey! Sorry for the late response. An album I can think of that really changed my music taste when I was younger was Kanye West's 'Yeezus.' I mainly only listened to Rock music and I never dived really deep into any music before I came across that album. Yeezus showed me that hip hop could be experimental and chaotic and it really interested me to see what else the genre had to offer.

Thanks for asking! btw I'm glad we agree on the Little Simz album :)

Thanks for the link and for making the list in the first place.👏 I found out about quite a few new albums that I've somehow got to find time to explore.

Thanks, I'll take a look! :)

I'm a little late, right?

I think Efêmera by Tulipa Ruiz introduced me to Brazilian popular music and made me realize that there's a lot of good artists in my country and I have never appreciated as I should. It's such a fun album and each song creates a unique universe.

Hi, Blue Train by John Coltrane. Jazz finally clicked when I heard this album and now it is one of my favourite genres.

🏳️‍🌈any pronouns🏳️‍🌈Hip hop, alternative rnb, neo-soul, jazz rap... that kinda stuff
First digit is a score out of 10
Second digit is a comparison to other albums
For example, I'd give both Ctrl - SZA and Stankonia - Outkast an 8/10 but I prefer Stankonia so it got 86 and Ctrl got 85, does that make sense?
Anway, the comparisson means that I adjust ratings quite a lot :)
My Library is kinda records I want/have on vinyl
