Everything about this album is great, apart from the singer, who is talented but not very unique or bold

Slauson Malone - A Quiet Farwell, Twenty Sixteen to Twenty Eighteen

Sound Collage, Experimental Hip-hop, Glitch-hop, Jazz, Ambient, Plunderphonics

Slauson Malon's debut is one of the most intriguing and alien rap albums i've heard.
black midi - schlagenheim

Math Rock, Noise Rock, Experimental Rock
Xiu Xiu - Girl with Basket of Fruit
9.
85
Post Industrial, Experimental, Noise, Electronic

Xiu Xiu's 2019 album is a horrifying experimental look into Jamie Stewart's mind, complete with frantic post-industrial soundscapes, psychopath-like vocals and unhinged lyrics. Jamie Stewart sounds like a madman shrieking his was across the instrumentals. Also Mary Turner Mary Turner is the scariest song I've ever heard.
Billy Woods & Kenny Segal - Hiding Places
10.

Abstract Hip-hop

a set of moody, grimy and dark tracks.
slowthai - Nothing Great About Britain
12.

UK Hip-hop, Grime

So much personality and emotion in this album. Some of these tracks are chilling. SO MUCH POTENTIAL!!

(rating does not include the 6 bonus tracks)
Malibu Ken - Malibu Ken
13.
80
Experimental Hip-hop, Abstract Hip-hop
Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY
14.
80
Pop Rap, Alternative R&B, Hip-hop
an extremely messy yet consistently emotionally powerful album.
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Bandana
16.
80
Hip-hop

I seem to be in the minority here but i don't think this thing is a flawless album. (Still a great album tho!!!)

Flaws:
• Freddie is great but overrated. I wish he was more versatile.
• Some instrumentals feel flat or are ruined by the mixing. Beat switches ruin some moments.
• Too many skits/interludes that are tedious.
Jamila Woods - LEGACY! LEGACY!

Deep House, Indian Indie
Flume - Hi This Is Flume
25.
70
Wonky, Experimental

A fun, wacky album full of intriguing electronic soundscapes. Repetitive at points and the flow is all over the place. High Beams ft. Slowthai and How To Build A Relationship ft. JPEGMAFIA are clear highlights
Dos Monos - Dos City
27.
70
Japanese Hip-hop, Jazz Rap, Experimental Hip-hop

•Dos Monos' debut debut showcases off the wall production, energetic and swagger filled deliveries and is generally a lot of fun. The only glaring problem is it's lack of any clear structure and inconsistent production.
BLARF - Cease & Desist
28.
70
Plunderphonics, Experimental, Noise
Flying Lotus - Flamagra
29.

Nu Jazz, Glitch Hop

Very high highs, very low lows. Inconsistent as hell. Doesn't work as an album. Way too long.

Glitch Pop, Electronic, Industrial, Experimental
Rico Nasty & Kenny Beats - Anger Management
32.
60
Hardcore Hip-hop, Trap Rap

An album i don't understand the appeal of. While Rico often brings a lot of personality and intensity (and some pretty funny lines) what she is actually saying seems to have no substance. As well as this, the production is extremely one note (I expect better from Kenny!!), making this a disappointing addition to Rico's discography

Best Moment: "Yeah, I got bitches on my dick and I ain't even got a dick"

Worst Moment: Mood (feat. Splurge) wow this feature is bad
MIKE - tears of joy
33.
Abstract Hip-hop
Death Grips - Gmail and the Restraining Orders
34.
Digital Hardcore, Glitch, Noise, Improvisation
