This felt like the moment before you finally die. Every memory I had, bad or good, came full circle as I listened to this fantastic album.

I have been recently bottling up emotions and this was a release for me. Thank you so much Parannoul for this gift of life. Until my death shall come.

Twigs expressed that in every album she learns a new skill. For LP1 she learned how to vogue, pole dancing in Magdalene, and in Caprisongs she said she learned how to smile again and just be happy.

Her making this mixtape as proof to herself that at this moment, she is happy to be surrounded by people she loves and truly loves her back, makes me love her more not just as ... read more

Something about this being released when I was 4 years old adds to how surreal this sounds to me. This feels like a memory that I once had and that I only unlocked now. That burst of memories that I never really had is making me overwhelmed with emotions that I need at this moment.

It is beautiful. What a way to end. The last installment to the Kick series will leave you emotional. Every feeling built and accumulated within you from the previous releases will burst into a universe of wonder. Arca has kicked.

Hey Mate,
I'm currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

Q&A list idea! A specific question asked to you that's connected somewhat to your PFP!

Do you think that with popular youtubers, a second thing, and the show's 154 episodes using the same songs, that the songs in IASIP have gone stale, or continue to work well in their inclusions?

Of course, and I'm glad to hear that.
Also- nice to see Sweet Trip taking your AOTY so far, absolutely loved that album.
