SUPERCOLLIDER - Cut Across That Field & Find Home
80
Another year, another SUPERCOLLIDER album! This one is somehow even harder to get into than the previous few, but rewards you a great deal for your perseverance, should you choose to give it. While it still maintains the identifiable features from the previous albums - the confessional lyrics, the waves of distortion, the constantly-on-the-verge-of-a-total-breakdown vocal delivery - there's a conscious effort here to be more ambient, droning and (dare I use the S-word) slightly more shoegaze ... read more
Charli XCX - Number 1 Angel
72
Probably my least favourite Charli project I've listened to so far, but it's a great display of potential, clearly sowing the seeds for what she would subsequently become by pushing these musical ideas and experimentations just a little bit further.

Favourites: Emotional, ILY2, 3AM
Least Favourites: Dreamer

Daniel.mp3 - Backroom
75

Laura Jane Grace - Hole In My Head
70

Favourites: Cuffing Season, Dysphoria Hoodie, Give Up the Ghost
Least Favourites: Birds Talk Too

Hey Ellie! 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!

Hello there Ellie!!!
Me and my brother recently released an album - in my review I explained the cool story behind how it was made and how it went semi-viral.
It would mean a lot if you could take a look, I promise it's pretty interesting :D
