The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads is a 94-minute post-rock/shoegaze epic of Josh T. Pearson's creation. It's one of the strangest albums I've heard, and definitely fit the idiom ''don't judge a book by its cover'' as it has one of the most jaw-droppingly hilarious album covers ever. The album is jam-packed with Christian themes, which combine in odd fashion with the post-rock sounds of crashing guitars. The album helps forge this patriotic country-like atmosphere that compliment the drone-like ... read more

They Hate Me Cuz I'm Vaporwave is a leaked collaboration album between Viper and the Chamber 38 label, a label of vaporwave producers, including Nmesh who often collaborates with vaporwave veterans Telepath. It’s a massive step-up from Viper’s other works post-2010, it’s full of Viper’s catchiest beats and his most concise fast-paced vocals ever. It’s odd to see such high-energy performances from Viper here, but it makes sense with the bodacious, commanding techno ... read more

I don’t like using the term underrated a lot, but this mixtape is, well, just that - underrated. I enjoy it for what it is, playful and goofy hip-hop. It’s definitely not nearly as refined as future BROCKHAMPTON efforts, but it consists of just banger after banger. Yes, it isn’t near the level of artistry in the SATURATION trilogy or even Abstract’s solo work, but it’s still fun as hell!! It’s clear that each member of BROCKHAMPTON is talented, All-American ... read more

Coastal Grooves is the debut album of blood orange. I feel that it perfectly captures the ache and longing that comes with youth and being in love, and has an intoxicatingly melancholic sound which spans the duration of the 40-minute album. this reaches its peak on the closing track “champagne coast”-which is my favourite track on the album. however, this record also delves into themes beyond longing, love, and heartache - the song “Sutphin Boulevard” was based on Paris ... read more

Hey Mate,
Just wondering if you were able to contribute to a list by @CamDoesMusic and @truthfulreviews based upon your 10 favourite 90's albums. This would work through you messaging myself a list from 1 being the best and 10th being the 10th best album you have listened to from the 90's. If you are able to contribute with a quote summarising the particular album as well that would be awesome! Your information delivered to us will be used to create a list named "AOTY Users Favourite 90's Albums".

Thank You So Much, Have a Great Day :)

Hi rivergrr, I’m making a list about album/s that changed AOTY users music tastes, if u have any albums that introduced u to new genres or shook up the music u listen to or something like that, i’d love to know :))

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 shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

I see you rated the Lunar Aurora / Paysage d'Hiver split A Haudiga Fluag / Schwarzä Feus & Schwarzäs Isä. Could you point me to where I can listen to it? I've been looking all over.

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 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.
