This album is great. It's consistent throughout the whole length, even though the longer songs range from 7-11 minutes. It's never boring. The lyrics are incredible and clever and addictive (Seriously, songs like "Drugs and Friends" massively leveled up just because of the lyrics)

I think one of the reason why this album is incredible is the perfect dynamics, where sometimes the song starts with a quiet riff and then it slowly builds up to insane catchy fuzzy guitars and wild drums. ... read more

'Deceit' by This Heat is undoubtedly one of the most unique and strangest album I've heard recently, and while it's not the best thing ever, I think it's a cutting edge moment that becomes an influence for many bands years later.

I'm going to be honest, my expectations for this album is very different than what it's turned out to be. Because I didn't expect this album to have a music that is kind of catchy and even groovy. Still strange, surely. I thought this album will be weird, dark and ... read more

Kid Cudi pouring his souls in a 90-minute rock album.

I always imagined this whole record performed live, songs like "AMEN" or "Angered Kids" will looks insane with full band. The raw guitar, thick bassline and crisp drums while Scott is singing and screaming with full anger is just ugh.. The acoustic ballad like "Wedding Tux" was a more heartfelt, personal moment from this thing. It's a nice listen, but this sound is even more polished on the title track, ... read more

'Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon' is Kid Cudi's attempt to make his own sci-fi soundtrack, filled with synthesizer-based instrumentals and moany singing.

Yes, I'm not lying when I said this sounds like a sci-fi soundtrack. There's definitely an intention from Mr. Scott to make this dramatic, spacey and futuristic aesthetic throughout this album. And, he executed it pretty well, atleast in terms of production (which he did it all by himself!)

There are definitely things that ... read more

'ye' marks my first experience of Kanye West's full-length solo work, and it's great!

I love the soundscapes of this album. The industrial hints on the first half makes this abrasive mood that gives such a hard punch. The latter then exchange these sounds with a nice soulful rock influence, ultimately cooled down by the last track "Violent Crimes".

Lyrically it's about the mind state of only one man, ye himself. His struggles with bipolar disorder, his controversies and his life ... read more

Over a year ago, I asked you and many other AOTY users what album you would want to be friends with. Welp, I decided to bring the concept back, with a sorta 'sequel' to that list and a reverse question:

If an album was personified as a person, what's one album you would avoid at all costs, whether it be cause of corniness, flat out racism or if it's simply a bad album.

Thank you for your time if you do end up responding and have a good one :).
