I have seen many things. I've seen artists take their happiness and turn it into art, I've seen them do the same to sadness, misery, and even suffering, but this is absolutely the first time I've ever seen anyone turn their death into an art project.

Let's go back to this exact day 5 years. I have been just getting into Bowie's music and was mostly listening to his 70s and 80s hits. Then on that fateful day, I wake up to hear my mother crying. I immediately got up to see what was happening. ... read more

Even though this is pretty much meat and potatoes Horror and Hardcore Punk, it’s got a ton of energy and a fair amount of decent songwriting in it. The production’s really raw, but if you can get past that, it’s quite enjoyable. Pure adrenaline music. Nothing more, nothing less.

Best Tracks: I’ll Be Waiting; Elders; Jennifer Lost the War; Crossroads; Out on Patrol

Keeping much of the charm of their debut, but upping the songwriting to another level, Kerplunk is a massive improvement and the first sign that Green Day might be more than an average 90s Pop-Punk band. Some of my all-time favorite Green Day songs are actually from this album, including the rawer, but admittedly a weaker version of "Welcome to Paradise", melodic Punk rocker "One of My Lies" and one of their best attempts at writing a ballad to this day, "No One ... read more

There are a lot of charming aspects to this record. It's pretty raw, melodic, and surprisingly likable, but even at 10 tracks, it's way too inconsistent to recommend it as anything more than a curiosity. Some of their better early songs actually appeared on their EPs, which was subsequently compiled on "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours", which is a longer, yet a better album than "39 Smooth". While this album's fine, you should probably start your Green Day journey with ... read more

It doesn't take me to say this is one of the most important rock albums of the 21st century, but what's amazing is how well this album has stood the test of time. Many of the contemporary garage rock bands like The Vines or The Hives, even tho not terrible, have lost much of their relevancy, while The White Stripes have endured. "Elephant", their masterpiece, is a big reason why. You'd be hard-pressed to find a bad thing about it. Sure I'm not as big on the last couple of tracks as ... read more

Proof that Jack White can do experimentation well and that Get Behind Me Satan was just a poor album. It might be a little derivative of Beck at times, but it's still a widely creative and immersive record. "Connected By Love" might be my favorite track for being the most off the wall and bonkers ballad Jack White has ever composed.

Best Tracks: Connected By Love; Over and Over and Over; Corporation; Respect Commander; Hypermisophoniac; Why Walk a Dog?

Replying from my AOTY list: I love The Garden. I think a part of their appeal is the personality of the duo themselves. They make some wacky punk music and this last album of theirs includes some off kilter stylistic choices like more screams and a more focused concept (or rather, aesthetic), if I may call it that. I think they are one of those bands that can put off some new listeners solely for the fact they often don’t always take themselves, and the music they’re writing, seriously leading to some goofy lyrics and meme-y songs. I’d go to The Life And Times Of A Paperclip a look and maybe some live videos or music videos for a first impression to them!

Yeah Clipping and Gorillaz seemed to have a stellar year in music! I look forward to whenever they drop new material.

The Strokes’ new track Selfless is probably my new favorite Strokes song of all time. That or top 5 easily.

This year I found myself almost exclusively listening to music that came out within the past 2 years if not from just this year. Found so much good stuff to come out. Lots of new surprises this year!

I just dropped both my EP and Album/(LP) lists just a bit after the new year began! I plan to add a description here soon, on my break at work, but it’s essentially all there! Thanks in advance for checking it out.

That album surprised me a lot. It’s easily making my list somewhere. What other albums really impressed you or caught your eyes that you weren’t expecting?
Dec 20, 2020
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!
