Travis Scott - UTOPIA

Hearing a Gentle Giant sample as the first sound on Travis Scott's new album is prophetic. End times are coming.
Dadawah - Peace and Love

It’s almost comical, the amount of times I’ve tried to review this album.

Having experienced this record in many adventurous mind-states (that’s as much as I’ll say), I can never seem to grasp its vastness. You think about one aspect of the mix, or the composition, or the context, and it takes you away. Trying to whittle “Peace and Love” down to the purest and simplest of terms is a fool’s errand, and I feel that anybody who has ever tried that task ... read more

Hey Trey!

I just got to 500 followers, that’s unreal! I cannot overstate how grateful I am to have you among the 500.

Now, I’ve never done one of these before, but I am gonna try my hand at a community list. The topic? Integer underflow songs. Songs so unbelievably bad they become awesome. Basically songs that are “so bad they’re good” but taken to the absolute extreme.

I would like to limit people to just one song, but if you think an album statement is more apt for the description than any of its individual songs, that is fine, but please only submit one album in that case.

If you don’t want to participate, please ignore this, but if you do, please let me know your pick!

I plan to have the list published by the 24th.

Once again, thank you so much!

Hey Trey, hope you're doing well. For a community list could you name 5 of your least favorite artists of all time and rank them in order? Would mean alot to me if you could and thanks in advance!

Holy shit, I just realized. I'm almost at 200 reviews!
How the hell did that happen that quick?! Especially since how long my reviews are.
Alright guys, well, time for a 200th review special! Coming soon.
I'll put up a list of albums to review for my 200th review special, however if you want to, you can just recommend those albums to me instead of telling me so I'll put it on the list. Thank you in advance

Hey Trey! I'm currently creating what's known as a network graph or "Atlas" of AOTY, and someone mentioned YOU! :D To ensure the highest accuracy possible, as well as allow as many members to take part I'm asking all users mentioned if they'd like to take part as well! The following link will take you to a form if you do decide to take part: https://forms.gle/FjrJiKqLF1pkA4MJ6 Hope you had/have an awesome day, and thank you in advance if you do decide to contribute to the Atlas!

What’s up, Trey? I know you probably get a lot of these, but this is important. To celebrate the end of the year in music and two hundred followers, I’m creating my first community list! All you have to do is send me your top 5 singles of the year! They can be ranked or not– it doesn’t matter. Also, you can add up to two honorable mentions! Here’s my list for reference:

1. Bending Hectic by The Smile
2. The Gods Must Be Crazy by Armand Hammer
3. Sorry Not Sorry by Tyler the Creator
4. The Blades by Squid
5. SCARING THE HOES by JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown

Honorable Mentions: We Shine At Night by Parannoul, Jenn’s Terrific Vacation by Danny Brown

Each song in the top five equals 2 points. Each honorable mention equals 1 point . After I get some entries, I’m gonna tally up all the points to see what the top songs were. I’ll contact you when the list is out! Peace! ✌️

Hey! My project Act Tragic finally completed our sophomore album, IN THE AFTERLIFE. We have spent the last year using GarageBand on my iPad to record and mix this record, so we know it isn’t professionally produced but we make due with what we have. It is influenced by indie rock, alternative rock, folk, and many more genres with influences ranging from Depeche Mode to Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse to New Order, Radiohead to Death Cab, and many more! We would love to hear your ratings and reviews of this project so we can grow as artists and keep doing what we love!
