R.I.P. Sophie Xeon.

Usually I don’t speak on things like this once I find out they happen. Writing reviews like this always feel extremely hard to write, but if i’m going to be honest, after hearing the news that Sophie, acclaimed trans-musician, had sadly passed away, I felt like I really needed to talk about my feelings about this record as a testament to what this album meant to me growing up. I don’t know what came over me to write this, and hopefully the meaning of why ... read more

Do you ever hear an album that makes absolutely no sense, yet at the same time, makes perfect sense? Have you ever felt that duality, that stark contrast, that perfect clash when listening to something? Because for me, 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix', the sophomore record from Injury Reserve, is exactly what that is; it is something that makes absolutely no sense, but it makes perfect sense. This is an album that is grief personified, laid out and dissected, to a horrifically accurate ... read more

I'm glad people are liking this but...This bums me the hell out.

First off, I'm not a huge fan of the compositions of 'Solar Power' to begin with. Every song on here sounds so stripped down, basic and empty that there is really nothing to grab on. Each song feels as lifeless as on the album counterpart, so there is ZERO reason for me to come to this EP for the music.

Second off, this is such a missed opportunity. I think that having Lorde reimagine these songs with Maori translations is not a ... read more

You guess you could say...I could be happier.

If you want the too long didn’t read version of this review, then here you go: I feel like this record is both a improvement on maturity and lyrical content but a downgrade on a musical front, and while I’m probably not going to be coming back to this record as a whole, there are some true highlights that make this album at the very least worth one listen.

But, for those who want the long version...let me take you back for a second.

Alexis, I think this house you speak of is on fire.

You know, if you would have told me a couple of months ago that I would be more excited to hear a Death Industrial project from Alexis Marshall over a new Kanye record, I probably would have agreed with you to some degree. Alexis’ music with Daughters has been some of my absolute favorite noise rock to come out in a very long time, and represents this horrific side of the human psyche that very few bands successfully capture: pure, ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

what is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do

Hey! I’m starting a list of AOTY’s most overrated albums; what’s an album you consider extremely overrated?
Aug 3, 2021
Thank you so much for responding!

That sounds incredible! I wanted to see them live, but they already Sold Out, so I’m hoping that I may be able to get some tickets!

Also, no problem! Keep being a legend!

@CLJesse is my significant twat
