Pinned Review

Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell
98
On December 14th, 2022, I posted a review of Carrie and Lowell, and gave it a low 70’s rating. I called it a walk in the rain album, and “that’s about it”. Then, I outdid myself! I updated that review a few months later, lowered the score to a 68, and said “Did we really need that gross lyric about masturbation?” I mean, how out of touch could I be? You can tell I was still watching Fantano when I heard this album.

Today, a full year later, I re-listened to ... read more

"all samples, right?"

"Yep
Supposedly around 900-3000"

I thought I knew what I was in for, having listened to a few tracks a few years ago.
I did not, in fact, know what I was in for.

THE REVIEW:

Since I Left You is an album made entirely up of samples. And it ... read more

Radiohead - In Rainbows
98
Just a reminder that these guys released one of the greatest albums of all-time, and debatably their best - with the option of being free.

Love all these, but my favorite tracks have to be: Bodysnatchers, Nude, All I Need, Jigsaw Falling Into Place

Olivia Rodrigo - GUTS
74
The more upbeat moments continue to impress, and are the best part of the album; but the piano ballads while weaker are a lot more refined this time. A fine sophomore effort.
Prince & The Revolution - Purple Rain
98
WOW. WOOOOOOOOW. Wow.

Yeah, I get it now.

Dream - to whoever wants to hear

Hey Tyler, 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? Optional but you could add a description or reason why for your picks. Thanks in advance!

Hey Tyler!
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!

What’s up, Tyler? 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! ✌️

So I like Arcade Fire. You know the drill.

Mitski Miyawaki is one of my favorite artists. This is all her albums ranked. My opinion, if you agree, great. If you don't, that's also fine. As long as you don't think Laurel Hell is her best.
