A preface, before the pretentiousness:
I sound overtly-fancy in this entire review, not only because this record's material is just so opaque that I think it needs this type of analysis and wording, but the record itself is also pretentious. For that, I do apologize. However, this was the hardest thing I've ever had to write. Over the course of two months, I've tried my hardest to collect and control my thoughts on this brilliantly fascinating experience. These have been difficult, gripping, ... read more

Low's Newest Release "Hey What" Will Leave You with a Bare Bones Sensation.

Something lays in the glitchy landscape. It’s a fuzzy, inconceivable blob of polygons, completely untouched by human sight. We know something is there, but we are so apprehensive that we become numb to the fear. Low’s “Hey What” evokes just that: an incomprehensible fear.

And yes, that was just my reaction. “Hey… what?”

Low’s last work, “Double ... read more

Last night, I awoke to my father screaming my name.

With a cup of mugwort tea and honey in hand, I read a chapter of House of Leaves before nodding off to sleep for the night…

My legs feel like they’re floating up, independent from the rest of my body. Slowly, gradually, chasing the ceiling to nowhere. Am I dreaming this feeling, or is something pulling them to the heavens? I will never know for sure. The next moment will stick with me forever.

My dad screams my name from the ... read more

“The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.” ~L.P. Hartley

Guess what? No, I still haven’t gotten over my obsession with the best ska band of all time, Streetlight Manifesto. And no, I still haven’t gotten my retainer to fit on my teeth, mostly because I haven’t worn the damn thing in roughly eight months. What I’m about to tell you, is totally mind-blowing. It’s something that not even the highest authorities in the world know ... read more

Is this Weezer’s most mature record to date? Absolutely!

“OK Human” sees the once hailed power pop group take on the chamber pop menace of a genre. It’s been nearly two years since they’ve released “The Black Album”, which was a mixed bag to say the least. The same year, they released a covers record, which I ended up enjoying a bit. It seems to me that Weezer are becoming one of the most ... read more

The last time it rained in Phoenix was about 150 days ago.

I'm cooped up in my room, mug of smooth hot cocoa in hand, listening to Peter Gabriel's self-titled debut on vinyl, when all of a sudden, I hear the dreary dark smatterings of rain drops on my window. Pitter patter, pitter patter. I run downstairs and look out onto the street. Sure enough, the sky broke today, the petrichor sweeping through the damp air and sticking to the outside of the clear glass window.

Peter Gabriel. What an ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through exemplifying its sound, shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY user's individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do.
