In a world where albums last at most 1-2 months, I see people coming back to this record more than any other record from 2021 in 3/4 years' time.

Not only Thug is extremely versatile, genre-fluid, but he also enjoys experimenting and pushing his limits further (no album of his is even remotely similar to its precedent one). This record is another pivotal stone of an almost-immaculate discography from an artist who completely changed how we look at and approach hip-hop culture and its ... read more

I am kind of new to the genre but I have highly enjoyed this post-industrial type of rock. "Days like these" is one of the strongest records of the year, so powerful in its confusing production. Great work
TheRestOfEden -
By far less creative and interesting than his second EP but I appreciate that he’s carving a complete lane of his own for himself with this blues-pop music.
TheRestOfEden -
Nice little EP which raises the hype for future works by the group. Looking forward.

James’ voice is heaven-sent. I have been a fan of his genre-blending, self-reflection-rooted music and this album serves as further confirmation of how big of an artist he is.

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!

Yo, you may not know who I am but I just put out my first project of 3 I'm releasing this year. I tried 8 different styles and really tried to keep the whole thing engaging throughout, it has mainly elements of hiphop and you'll see me try my best to follow in the steps of new artists like Slowthai and Joey Bada$$. I got it properly mixed and mastered and I hope I can win you over with at least one track. Give it a try and review it, I would love and appreciate some feedback. All love <3

I enjoy rating and reviewing albums. I mostly listen to anything related to hip-hop but love neo-soul, alternative, R&B, indie-pop/rock, and psychedelic pop too.
I love reading others' opinions and takes.

Decent albums from 60 to 69.
Good albums from 70 to 74.
Great albums 75 to 79.
Outstanding 80-89.
Amazing 90 to 99.
Perfect, Masterpiece 100.

Classics are defined by their relevance and constant quality over time and fall within 90-100.
