2020 Album Diary

A new thing I'm trying this year, where I write about my musical experience from every day of the year.

BTW, If i have a score change of a record later on I'm not changing it here. I want this to be an accurate assessment of my thoughts on that day.

(The "---------------------------------------------------" indicates these are albums that came out this year, but not this day.)

("S/T" means "Self Titled" if you didn't know)

Lil Darkie - THIS DOES NOT EXIST
99
1/1/2020

General Notes: A very strange day. Usually at the start of a year we're flooded with albums and my feed is a buzz with new content, but not today I guess. Everyone only cared about one thing, Lil Darkie, and honestly, he deserved it. A truly amazing record, it really sets some big shoes for 2020 to fill. But then again the 2nd and 3rd most popular albums are a super racist album and Tom Sawyer so who knows?

Albums I listened to from Best to Worst:
Lil Darkie - THIS DOES NOT EXIST (99)
Machine+ - Saṃsāra (73)
Possible Space - The Truth About Last Night (56)
TheHxliday - Broken Halls (49)
Tom Sawyer - Momma (12)
WETBACKMANNY - Cutest Spic Alive (1)
(Total Score for today: 48)

Best album I listened to that is not from this year: Gouge Away - Burnt Sugar (92)
Stice - Here Come The Baton
84
1/2/2020

General Notes: A super slow day. And I mean it. The covers were all super boring and for most of the day the biggest albums were 2 hour long Celer albums. That is until about 9 when we were blessed by the goddess of Rap herself, Stice! Godspeed Stice, you and your zany ways.

Albums I listened to from Best to Worst:
Stice - Here Comes The Baton (84)

♥ GOJII ♥ - Wishing Star
82
1/3/2020

General Notes: Most popular artist of the day was GOJII and that's kinda cool. It's always fun to see obscure artists get the spotlight for a bit. And it was some sweet synthpop fun. Mainly spent the day listening to great old music like Sarah Vaughan and J. Geils Band.

2/16/2020

General Notes: Real disappointed about the fact that the one album that came out to today was shitty garbage water shitty shit, but hey, everything else was great. AAL made one of the best "deconstructed club" albums I've ever heard. I hated 2012 but this just puts him straight in my "Super Damn Good" zone. Tennis and Raveena also made some damn incredible music. Just sheer power my god! It's great!

2/17/2020

General Notes: That movie "Gretel and Hansel" it's really good, I give it a recommendation. "Paradise Island" was bad and dumb but it was entertaining, so I recommend it on that aspect. Anyways, pretty good day music wise. I love me some folky pop and I'm getting real tired of Kpop.
