Pinned Review

After last night’s album announcement, I finally decided that today was the day to finally get around to listening to 2022’s Beyonce album Renaissance and get another one of the long list of backlogged 2022 albums off of my list. I knew it was going to be good, but I didn’t know it was going to be THIS good.

Renaissance allows Beyonce to truly prove that she is That Girl. Chock-full of hot girl confidence boosting bangers (shout out to “COZY”) and top-tier house ... read more

Armand Hammer - Doves

There's so much to love here, it feels like everything the group has done has led to this moment. It's maybe their best song ever, and certainly the best song this year so far

Beat's very nice, and rapping is very solid as well. Not super to my taste stylistically but I can acknowledge that it's been made very well.
Caroline Polachek - Desire, I Want To Turn Into You: Everasking Edition

I think the original is a bit better but some of these bonus tracks are heat. I will not be counting this as the best album of the year thus far though because that feels like cheating.
Souza & Aplete - Ethereal

The level of maturity reached on "Ethereal" is really impressive, and to me, this is the culmination of all of the excellent artistic and personal progress Souza has made over the last few years. The writing is incredibly profound and moving, especially on "Benjamin," the highlight of this project. Sure, it's a little rough around the edges, but the overall product is a step above his last EP and is a testament to the artist he's become.

Best Songs: Benjamin

Dev Lemons - Give Mama A Hug

It's pretty solid, but I've heard some more enjoyable stuff from her also.

Hey Brady! I want to apologize for taking almost a year to finish a community list I invited you to for reaching a follower goal. I kinda went on an AOTY hiatus for a while and I thought that I hadn't finished this but I actually did, I just didn't make it public nor send messages to the people who participated. It's finally here, please tell me if there are any errors, again, sorry for taking so long: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/pikapoyo/list/138628/perfect-albums-to-introduce-a-hip-hop-head-to-other-genres/

Community list is out now! https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/davfaithid/list/186795/integer-underflow/

Thank you so much for your time

Hey Brady!
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!

Hey WrathOfGod27983, I just released my first EP and I would really appreciate if you could review it. I put a lot of passion into my art and I would like to know your thoughts. It also has tracklist ratings available for you to rate the tracks individually :)

Hello WrathofGod27983!

I decided to make a community list called “AOTY’s most futuristic sounding albums” and I am asking you if you want to be apart of my list or not.

to explain it:

what’s an album that sounds like it came from the future?

Hey Brady, 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? Thanks in advance!
