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

“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

Today is the 20th anniversary of The Caretaker's "A Stairway to the Stars".
It is also my two year anniversary of joining AOTY.

So, there's a single question I've been pondering over the past couple weeks. It hasn't been pondered in the heat of an existential crisis or fit of sadness, just something that I've been toiling with for a while. When it comes to the question at hand, I'm most certainly not the only person who thinks it, visualizes it, or dreams it. The entire human race, ... read more

"Close your eyes!" I heard her coming closer to the room, the footsteps becoming less faint.
"Why in the hell would I do that?" I question with forced anger. Her head pops out from the door frame, an inquisitive gaze, "Do you want more pain than you're already receiving? Now, close those eyeholes!" I shake my head in angst, agreeing to whatever ... read more

Hi there! I hope you are having an amazing, happy and healthy day today <3

I’m making a ‘Comfort album’ list which would be a go-to album to listen to when we are upset or having a hard time, as music is a source of happiness or comfort to many people. As we are facing such a hard time right now with the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe with this list, we can as a community gather as many albums in a list for anyone who may be looking for a certain album that puts them in a good mood, calms them down, or like I’ve stated before.. comforts them! If you would like to submit an album that does that effect for you, please list these 4 things, album name, artist, and a sentence as to WHY you love this album and WHY it’s such a comfort album for you. It could be because of the lyrics, how it makes you feel.. etc. You may explain it in either one sentence or however many sentences you want, it is your choice! BUT, If you do not have one, no worries then <3 Thank you for reading!
