One of the better shoegaze albums in recent memory. With emotional intensity at nearly every corner, this dreamlike album does justice.

10 songs...and still not a quarter of them memorable

(that Jailhouse Rock live cut is pretty swinging though)

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to a project where I interview iconic AOTY critics. In this project, the AOTY user base gets to ask the questions. For my debut interview, December 2020 edition, I have gotten TreyLikesBands on board to be interviewed. The question is, what is a music-related question you have for Trey. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the 15 best questions to ask Trey. If you can't think of any questions, you have time. I will not be finalizing the questions for a couple of weeks. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!
