Listening to this along with "De-Loused" on the same night was a fucking experience.

"Frances the Mute" is a pitch-perfect follow-up to an already amazing debut, taking all the highlights of its predecessor and building upon each and every one of them! The playing is even more technical, the production is chockfull of great sound manipulation, the songwriting is immaculate and Cedric Bixler-Zavala's vocal performances have STEPPED THE FUCK UP!!! His vocal range was already ... read more

As soon as I heard “De-Loused in the Comatorium” last year, I was addicted Now I have it on CD, this is a fucking amazing album!

This track hits you with every highlight this album has right from the get-go, with Omar’s fantastic guitar playing, the complex, technical compositions and the bonkers, ... read more

At the Drive-In (and also The Mars Volta, which I'll get into shortly) is a band I've wanted to binge for a long time. I think it's the introduction of the first two Mars Volta records that made me anticipate listening to "Relationship of Command" even more.

AJJ, known back then as Andrew Jackson Jihad, is a band I found in a Discover Weekly playlist in late 2016, the same year they abbreviated their name. “Brave as a Noun” was such a different song to what I was listening to back then, but I was super intrigued. And for an album that I listened to for so long… why did my stupid dumb dumb stupid brain give "People That Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World" an 8.4? I was kinda stupid dumb back then, if you ... read more

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!

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 and I'd love to know which album has had the greatest influence on your current taste in music? If you want, I'd also appreciate it if you could say exactly how it's made you grow/learn more as a listener (don't worry, you don't have to do this part).

Thank you for reading and answering, if you do.

Hi, I was bored and I really like AnCo right now, SO I MADE A COMMUNITY LIST!!!
The concept is simple: just tell me which Animal Collective song you like best.
I want to see what everyone else thinks about them, more specifically which songs they like.
Feel free to reply with the song and the corresponding album!
Thank you for contributing!
This is the Depressed Drummer, signing out.
