Pinned Review

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - Council Skies
One of the blandest albums I've heard this year. I mean there's some catchy parts on the singles but like I don't even remember a single part about any of the other tracks. Nothing interesting at all about this album and that's coming from an Oasis fan.

Also that Uncut review is hilarious. "Adding atmospheric detours recalling late period Weller and Bowie." First of all Weller isn't dead so I don't know how you can call anything he's done "late period" and also this is ... read more

Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
This is an incredible album. I think I might need some more time to give a thorough analysis of it but from what I heard on first listen I love it. The vocals are really interesting and remind me of the Pixies & Talking Heads at times just with more aspects of midwest emo. The lyrics about the urbanization of America are really appealing to an American listener like me. Teeth Like God's Shoeshine is one of the best songs I've ever heard. I can't even imagine how much time and effort this ... read more
Nas - Illmatic
So I just realized that I have never reviewed Illmatic. I've always been a huge fan of this album, it's a masterpiece of boom bap production and amazing flows by Nas. As I might have mentioned before, I'm much more of a fan of more hardcore hip hop but I also really like the conscious hip hop when it's done right and Nas practically perfects the genre here.
Avenged Sevenfold - Life Is But a Dream...
I really do appreciate these guys for doing what they want and making music that isn't for everyone. But, it's just not for me. The vocals aren't that interesting and it's a huge cluster of ideas that don't mesh at all. There's a uniqueness to it that I can at least respect but it doesn't make me like it in any way sadly.
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
A lot of the discussion surrounding this album seems to be whether this is really that great with people saying it's not as impressive or as interesting as others say it is. I'm sort of in the middle but I definitely don't think its overrated or anything. I think this album sounds fantastic, that's what really stands out to me. For an album that came out in 1977 this is awesome to listen to. The cover is also iconic and deserves its status. The hits are really great. I think Dreams & Go ... read more
Foo Fighters - But Here We Are
So, the Foo Fighters are a band I've never reviewed an album of but I'm very familiar with them. Taylor Hawkins was one of the best drummers ever and it tortures my soul to know that Dave Grohl has had to go through something like this again with Kurt Cobain before but also now with Taylor dying. Not only that but Dave's mother Virginia also recently died and I know him and her were very close. I read most of Dave Grohl's book that came out a few years ago where he talked about how his mother ... read more

Hey Tommy, for my upcoming 700 follower special I wanted to do a list based some research on AOTY user's most listened to albums. All you need to do is send me a link to your account. If you don't have one, no worries. If you could tell me what is (probably) your top 10 most listened to albums that would great instead. Thanks for your time in advance!
Yo tommy. For a list, I’d like for you to give me a word. Any word at all. That’s literally it.


Hi! I am way too positive of a music reviewer and am working on becoming a bigger nerd and being more critical of music!

Because of school and work I will not be as consistent with my reviews but will try to find time to listen to as many albums as I can.

I listened to more albums in a year than I ever have this year. Even though it took me an extra week to get caught up on some albums I can now say that 2022 was a great year for music critically. ...
