 - 6pc Hot EP

I feel bloated. I feel the greasy uneasy feeling of unhealthy lifestyles showcased in the lyricism here. But most importantly, I feel like after this deep fried EP that -- maybe, just maybe -- there is a chance "Six-Black" can make my heartmelt instead of heartburn in projects to come.

Rock AOTY?

Soulful, delicate, extremely dynamic, emblematic, enigmatic, epic, groovy, INTENSELY FUZZED OUT & fun to listen to through any speakers

I'm going to post my review as a random sentence generator:

I am my aunt's sister's daughter.
He liked to play with words in the bathtub.
It doesn't sound like that will ever be on my travel list.
Wisdom is easily acquired when hiding under the bed with a saucepan on your head.

...That's probably good for now.

As much as I love Merzbow, I refuse to subject anyone to his music! lmao x')
I just imagine someone throwing on the playlist on shuffle and all of a sudden getting an ear-full of a deafening static metallic tormenting jumpscare hahaha

Maybe I'd suggest Promotion Man off of Merzbeat because it's more conventional but it's not very spacial y'know?

Seeing all those space themed songs in one playlist makes my heart weep <3 hahaha

I thought of one that I don't believe was added that fits!
Stars by Hum!

Oh my God! I just saw the playlist! That's actually so incredible! I've never been commemorated in this fashion before lol!
We are without a doubt the most astronomically traveled users on here ;P haha
I've never actually made a playlist before, believe it or not. I'm not so good with themes... I'd just add songs that I'd regret not bringing with me to space!

Thank you very much!!! You're much too kind :)
A lot of people take music and reviewing pretty seriously, which I also admire but I also see a lot of people say how from doing so, it takes away from the fun of listening to music. Which is how we all became such huge fans in the first place!
AOTY is the greatest website ever and brings a lot of attention to under appreciated music but it also contributes to the feeling of dread when it comes to listening it seems...

Where should we go first!? I'd love to listen to Merzbow while on the Moon.
