NOTE: This post is super fucking vent-y and self-reflective. I mean, like, this is probably going to be very hard to read. Please read with caution as I do care about you.

No, I’m not disappearing completely. I’m just gonna be gone for the rest of the month. Maybe a little longer? Who knows? I know it seems like I take breaks from writing reviews every so often, but I think this break is more deserved.

Straight to the point, I haven’t been doing well lately. Like, I REALLY ... read more

Loathe follow-up "I Let It in and It Took Everything", my personal favorite metal album of 2020, just a year after its release with... a collection of ambient works? Sounds about right.

Remember those ambient interludes that kept that record flowing? Well there's now an album's worth of material of it and I ain't complainin'! These aren't just repeats of these ideas, they also build upon them in pretty significant ways. This is a VERY pretty album, brimming with shoegaze-y textures ... read more

Like their influences before them, Black Country, New Road aims to achieve something big in the more Slint-inspired portion of their scene. By adding jazz elements to their roster, the band received plenty of attention from their extensive touring and single releases. After a couple years of waiting, BCNR released a record "For the first time". I've definitely heard the name here and there, but it wasn't until a friend showed me "Science Fair" that I instantly hooked myself ... read more

Weezer is releasing TWO GODDAMN ALBUMS this year?! Nerds rejoice!

The band shifts to a chamber pop direction on "OK Human". That means you still get the basics of Weezer's power pop songwriting mixed in with a lot of orchestral elements and much more piano. Honestly, I think the orchestral element is exceptional here! It's a sharp addition to the core sound that's busy without feeling too blown-out. The first half is very strong as well! The lead single, "All My Favorite ... read more

Ugh... I don't like saying that this is a disappointing follow-up, but it really is. The reason why I thought "Street Worms" was so good was because of its eclecticism, its silliness, rawness, the pure DAD energy that radiated off of it. "Welfare Jazz" still has much of those charms. We still have great, energetic cuts with raw production like "Ain't Nice", "Creatures" and "Girls & Boys", which is a great successor to "Sports". ... read more

Hello, I’m Jeremy Pritchard

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

What is your favorite album of the year 1970, and could I get a few words on your thoughts on that album!?

{I’m going to be doing a series of lists where I go through AOTYs favorite albums of every year since 1970 and this is the first part of that ultimate goal!!}

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

(this is for a list) What is an obscure album that you wish more people had heard?

2020 has been a huge roadblock, a year that a lot of people would want to forget. Filled with hardships and pain. As this year is coming to a close, I wanted to ask a question for a list. What song would you listen to, to end the year off entirely? It can either be a send-off song, or a song that you would listen to in high hopes for 2021. Hope I'm not bothering, and if you respond, thanks for the help!
Some socially awkward, guitar-wielding, genderfluid (they/them) music geek/hipster garbage who shits on bands and artists.
