Grace by Jeff Buckley is the first and only record by the son of Tim Buckley before his preeminent death in 1997 after a fatal drowning, and I have to say that his death becomes even more tragic to me as this is one of the best records of the 90’s for it holds an emotional weight that is powerful and moving unlike any other record released at its time.

Jeff Buckley genuinely has one of the most unique voices I’ve ever heard with his raw and vulnerable vocal delivery that is rarely ... read more

Morrison Hotel is the 5th studio album from The Doors following up The Soft Parade which is usually cited as their worst effort (at least in the sense of their original run). I had been sensing some sort of trend in The Doors last two records having played it safe, so I went into this project not knowing if I would come out the other end with a classic or a decent record with its moments.

Right off the bat, Morrison Hotel opens with the explosive “Roadhouse Blues”. The best way to ... read more

The Turning Wheel is one of the most beautiful records of this year.

The arrangements are superbly smooth with these warm tonalities that kick off the record allowing for beauty to flourish. Tracks such as “Little Deer”, “Always”, and “The Turning Wheel” invite you into this alternate fantasy land where suffering is secondary.

I think that’s what makes this record really incredible. The fact that it feels like entering a storybook. As the pages are ... read more

Stress: The Extinction Agenda is Hip-Hop’s Horrorland run by the forgotten kings of Rap.

Stress: The Extinction Agenda is the follow-up to Organized Konfusion’s 1991 debut. They weren’t met with any sort of mainstream success, yet they slowly started to gain respect and a small following in the underground for their unique lyrics and incredible crate-digging. Organized Konfusion’s second record would have to not only follow up their extremely good debut but do something ... read more

LISTEN TO THIS PLEASE!!!

Organized Konfusion was a duo based out of Queens, NY that was made up of Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch. On their 1991 debut, both MCs showcase their talents on every front from their sonic capabilities to their lyrical abilities as they capture the audience with their unique sound.

Right from the start of the record, it immediately gripped me. I have a huge admiration for Boom-Bap, but there’s something unique about this project that I can’t say for many ... read more

Suspiria is a 1977 Italian horror film directed by Dario Argento. The film is equally beautiful as it is hypnotizing. The imagery shown is some of the most mesmerizing I’ve seen with its color scheme and lighting techniques, but nothing kept my attention like the music.

Since it is that time of the year, I wanted to make a relatively short review commemorating the Halloween season.

Goblin is not only able to encapsulate what the film was going for, but quite possibly even better. The ... read more

I'm bored and so decided to make another community list; this time,

What is a record you believe has defined its genre albeit through shaping said genre, or has established said genre in popularity and/or existence, and why?

Hi again, sorry to bother you.

As I was creating the list, due to issues that arose and just new ideas, I thought of this idea where each of the top 10 albums have a bit of a foreword in their descriptions. Anyways, getting to the point, I'd appreciate it so much if you could just reply with a couple of sentences on Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven regarding its importance in musical history, influence and, most importantly, why you love it/what it means to you.

Thanks so much for reading and replying, if you do. It'd mean a lot.

So sorry but I can't contribute to the last as I haven't been to a concert yet, thank you for asking me though! :)

Thank you for that response!

I haven’t listened to too much of Iron Maiden’s discography, but I’ve heard Bruce Dickinson is absolutely incredible on stage!

I haven't been to many concerts as of late, for obvious reasons, and before everything got shut down I hadn't been to any concerts. One I can definitely say I had a good time at was Iron Maiden's "The Book of Souls" tour a couple years back. I love Iron Maiden and, even at their older age, they were still dynamic, explosive and an absolute ball. They were bloody loud as well; I had to wear earbuds to block some of the noise out so my ears wouldn't ring afterwards (I was fairly close to the front). But they were awesome, they captured the essence of their music brilliantly, which made for a fantastic live experience.

Thanks for asking and, whilst I'm here, thanks so much for replying to my question. The list will be up in a couple days prolly

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do.

Thanks!! Also really appreciate the response, list will be up soon :)
