Kind of obsessed with the lo-fi elements of this and the organ on a lot of the tracks. Very introspective, great production and writing.

Really enjoyed her last record and this is pretty good as well. Definitely a more accessible sound for her but still such an interesting voice and great writing

cute ep from Foxes. Love Not Loving You and Dance are definitely the highlights for me but there are some other cute moments. Excited for an actual album from her

definitely not as bad as changes but the questionable MLK interlude/ intro of 2 Much cheapens the entire album

Really interesting follow up to NFR. Lovely production, vocals and writing on a more inwards looking album from Lana. The themes of the album are not as big or dramatic and that really helps the music to stand out. There's also some new sounds and techniques explored on this that shows Lana is still trying to push herself to new territory from White Dress's interesting chorus to Dance Till We Die's unexpected bridge. As expected, Jack is amazing with Lana though Yosemite was a breath of fresh ... read more

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Supp!

As some of you may know I've tried a challenge like this before, but I failed miserably after not caring about some records I needed to listen too.
So it's time to start the second challenge and be a little less ambitious, I will listen rate and review an album every Monday and Friday, which I normally wouldn't cover.
This is where the point of the challenge comes in, I will try to broaden my musical experience by giving certain genres a change, which I normally would write off as "it's not really my thing".
I hope you guys in the AOTY community will help me, again, on this journey!

This challenge will start on Friday the first in January, so I will give myself some time gathering all the records from you guys! I hope this will turn out better this time!

Genres I listen to on the daily are: Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap-Metal, Indie-Pop and R&B. So, any record that's not within that certain genre may be recommended!

Thank you :))

Hi, I just released my new Ep Yūgen (幽玄) It is made in ambient style so if you like this kind of music you can give it a chance if you want. I would be very happy to hear what are your thoughts about this record. Simple rating would be great too!! Thank you and sorry for bothering ^.^

Here is a link to Ep: https://soundcloud.com/hubert-dobrych-op/sets/y-gen

I totally agree with the concept part. The songs on the album don't really relate to the climate per say when glanced at, but once you analyze the song deeper, Grimes uses metaphorical approaches to talk about the environment. e.g. Violence is about the relationship between Earth and humans

Heyyy I saw your score for miss anthropocene and was just asking if you could it a few more listens? The record really grew on me and got better with each listen especially with the tracks B4 the fever & IDORU

Have a good day 💕
