EDIT: This is now my favorite album of all time.

Every time I listen to Bloom, I am more amazed at how a human was able to make these songs.

To me, this album captures a special emotion that is hard to illicit. It is the feeling of lonely comfort. The feeling that you are all by yourself, yet you are satisfied. You are happy. You are thankful for your life, what you have, the relationships with other people, yet you're alone. And it's beautiful. When you can't get a hard-hitting argument or a ... read more

OOO BABY!

The funk here is devastatingly smooth, with horns, soul, percussion, and wah-wah pedals coming from all directions.

Simply put, this is an amazingly well put-together funk experience that rightfully even more iconic than the film itself. It creates an incredible atmosphere, one in which you can just groove forever.

This album makes me so happy, I love it!

Although somewhat of a standard death metal experience, the pummeling, aggressive nature of this band is unique and passionate from the get-go. It's clear they have a fantastic grasp of melody, time signature changes, and face-destroying guitar riffs.

I haven't heard anything else from Death yet, but I've been told it's uphill from here, and I'm so excited to see where they take their energy and creativity to change the genre forever.

I'm back!

After a long time of being lost in the sea of jam bands and live Phish recordings, my friend showed me a track from this album, and while doing a Doordash run the next day, I decided to listen to the whole thing.

WOW!

Through my six-month intense Phish phase, I have missed out on a lot of music, and hearing this album has inspired me to start listening to albums again. Although I won't be scoring them as much as I used to, I'm definitely gonna start listening a lot more.

Onto the ... read more

Just as incredible as everyone says it is.

Never heard a Brazilian album, and I was pleased to hear this amazing mix of acoustic folk rock, psychedelia, and classic Brazilian music.

My first album of 2021 (a little slow with listening this year so far), and oh my god what an album!

In the same way that black midi's Schlagenheim blew my mind in 2019, this is just a frenzy of complex rhythms, great commentary, and the kind of attacking music that makes me want to curl up in a ball.

Hey, thanks a ton! Good luck with the Grateful Dead live chronology, that's quite the undertaking. I feel like you could spend a lifetime on their live work.

Hi fellow user! This year I’ll be hosting the Top 50 Albums of 2020 List Aggregate for users! The goal of this list is to achieve a concise and compact collection of the AOTY community’s favorite albums of 2020! Like last year, I’ll be choosing from 50 users’ lists to contribute.

That’s where you come in.

To guarantee your spot on the list, please let me know that you would like to be included. There are limited spots! That being said, to be included, you must...
* Have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from the year 2020.
* Have made a ranked list of those albums by Christmas (the last Friday of the year).

Remember, you can only be included if you have listened to and rated at least 50 albums from this year. If you only have a top 40, you won’t be accepted, unfortunately. If you have more than 50, that’s great! I’ll just be referencing your Top 50 for this project (I will peep the rest of your ratings just for fun).

Let me know! Happy listening friend!

Hey I’m sorry if this is annoying but me and my friends attempted to make a few ambient songs and we just uploaded our first song to Soundcloud! We would really appreciate it if you could give it a listen! Sorry for self promotion but we’re really looking for feedback - it’s only 90 seconds long :)
