1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY ON AOTY!!!

On November 25th, 2020, I created my Last.fm account. I’m posting this review now because I expected it to be done by the 25th, but I’m a little early on time. I think it’s only right to review an Ariana album for an occasion like this. The full trilogy of reviews for Ariana’s past 3 albums is finally here. Back in August, I wrote a long review for my favorite album of all time, Positions. In September, I wrote an even longer review for ... read more

I can bet on my life that there’s 100k+ moms in gated communities crying to I Drink Wine rn





Adele is somebody who I always thought of as just another artist my mom likes. I mean I’m not wrong, but I was never able to get a full capture of her sound. I’ve heard most of the hits, but I am definitely not a fan. I’d say that there’s some perks to Adele’s past music, but not enough to keep me interested. This album was able to change my mind.

No, this is not ... read more

Taylor who?





I don’t like to think about Donda for the flaws. The important part for me was the listening parties. Hearing those songs back to back to back was just an experience of a lifetime. And the fact that there was three events to hear the progression of the album change so quickly is unheard of. I’ll talk a bit more on the deluxe.

Never Abandon Your Family wouldn’t be a track I would really return to, but during the listening party it was beautiful to have it work ... read more

Anderson .Paak is the first artist that I’ve listened to that’s music allowed me to branch out and explore more genres. Bruno’s music has been with me my whole life branching back almost ten years now. After hearing about their collaboration album in the works, I was beyond excited to see how they would work together. After eight months of waiting, it’s finally here.

About a year after COVID started, there’s been a lot of good and bad music, but the reason ... read more

After making a statement with Limbo over a year ago, Amine continues to prove that Caroline wasn’t the end for him. Starting his career with Good For You and ONEPOINTFIVE, the energy, flows, beats, and all around fun was all there at the beginning. With Limbo, I like that he went for a fun aspect, but also got pretty personal on songs like “Mama” or even “Roots”. The fact that an album like Limbo was made over the pandemic just proves that Amine never takes a rest. ... read more

Ed Sheeran is someone I’ve always been pretty neutral with. Over the past couple years, he’s legitimately taken over the world for some reason. A decade in, and he still thinks pop works for him. I have so much confidence that he could make a great folk record(or anything along the lines of that). I’ve been somewhat generous towards his music compared to what every other music nerd thinks about him. I even like Shape of You. It’s catchy and it gets to the point. Perfect ... read more

DAMN PEGGY!

I remember when I first joined AOTY almost a year ago. I didn’t really understand the whole craze with quote on quote “experimental music." I thought that Death Grips, Danny Brown and JPEGMAFIA were the last thing I would ever listen to, but here we are. I think over time I started to keep an open mind, and that’s what makes music so great for me. I really wasn’t into Peggy’s music at all until I listened to HAZARD DUTY PAY a couple weeks ago. I ... read more

If you have ever spoken to me, or if you’ve looked at my page whatsoever, you would probably make the assumption that I love Ariana Grande. And NO, I am not simping. I have 1000% respect for Ari in every way, and I’m simply just supporting her. Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll start the review.

Ari’s sixth studio LP “Positions” has legitimately changed my life in every way, and there’s nothing else that could top that record. No other record ... read more

It’s 12:44, and I’m sitting in the middle of a study hall. I’m staring at my keyboard with absolutely no idea how to start this. The motivation is present but my fingers are frozen with a blank mind. I’ll just try things out and see how it goes. I know I’m supposed to write about artists with their last name, but I use Ari or Ariana because that’s how I'm used to writing it.

Think about it. Ariana was that red-haired girl from Victorious like 8 years ago. ... read more

edit: might've been recency bias so rating will change for now

Genuinely lost for words

Injury Reserve is a group I’ve always seen as those guys who make experimental hip-hop and that’s all. Experimental hip-hop has never really been my go to genre. Danny Brown, JPEGMAFIA, and clipping. are examples of artists that never really clicked with me yet are majorly essential to the genre in more ways than one. I didn’t really see them as an ideal group to listen to in my free time ... read more

This might be on par with Positions

Ariana Grande Butera Gomez is one of the most successful artists of the 2010’s. Finding her passion for music after leaving Nickelodeon in 2014, she made it to the top of the billboard charts within months of her singing career’s kickoff. Over her entire career, Ari has worked with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, and ofcourse, Mac Miller. After five albums full of nostalgic 2010’s hits, Ari has genuinely enhanced her greatness over ... read more
