Just like many other emerging French artists with a similar profile, SONBEST's projects shine thanks to their audacious production choices for French Hip Hop standards, and a particularly tasteful and eclectic aesthetic direction, but it fails to materialize these good ideas and intentions into a truly solid and consistent track list.

Despite it's seducing contours, 'Arcane' suffers from unconvincing and borderline boring performances from SONBEST, lack of substance, and often very pleasant to ... read more

Hey Mate,
I am currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!

purely personal "how much this record means to me right now" ratings here

ratings for singles are garbage or exaggerated don't pay attention
