fur and gold is my favorite album of all time, and my first introduction into natasha khan's music, which i greatly enjoy. the best way i can describe it (other than a masterpiece) is a movie for your ears, since khan's vocals are stunning and melodramatic, her lyrics are insanely interesting, and her production is spot-on for the emotions she presents throughout the thing. each and every song is a perfect example of her ambition and skill, with none standing out in a negative way. everything ... read more

even more expansive and mystifying than mazy fly was, and that's already an album i love to death, all with the craftsmanship of someone who knows their way around a great art pop record. i love this :)

i like black dresses with synths. i also like black dresses with guitars :)

but real talk though, the band has had a pretty tumultuous past year, and they reflect that a lot in their music here. it's deeply introspective stuff, but they're also relatable as hell with it and i feel that in time, this is going to be the album that i think of when i think of black dresses. i love their more metal-influenced sound on forever in your heart, which is strange because i don't really like metal at ... read more

i love the dreamy vibes on here (especially on "the museum," "dream," and "blue candle"), and colde does a really good job at establishing a loungey feel for most of the ep, but i have no clue why "lighter" is on here because that song kinda sucks 💔

i've come to greatly enjoy pale waves's 2018 debut since i first heard it, so i was excited to hear how they'd follow it up, and although who am i? doesn't hit the same retro-ish marks as that album, it *does* give me the same feelings as some really specific early-2010s pop rock—"tonight tonight" and "want u back" specifically—albeit with a sanitized pop punk edge that's nothing but refreshing and cathartic in a way.

"badibaba," "the crack," and "where do we go from here?" make me hopeful that i'm going to appreciate this album more with time. right now, though, i don't fully click with goat girl's sound, but i greatly enjoyed a majority of their ideas and melodies and general grooviness.

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 wless (s-tier creator), I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

(pt 2) i don't know if you're the same way as i am in that, but yeah! i just wanted to quickly say hi and then started rambling, i guess it's just cause i haven't really told anyone about that, but talking too much like this is not unlike me. i'm sorry ;-;

but yeah! i've always wanted to make a list on this site of ideas i've had for levels with songs or even full albums (paired with xxl length levels), and maybe i'll actually put that together soon! anyway, thanks for reading all of this if you did, and yeah! you're the best :3
