I remember syrup sandwiches and syrup sandwiches 

 

Damn sums up my reaction to this winning.

It is what it is, I guess. Good points made by @Dweskand @coachlow. Hell, I think We Set Signals’ album was better than most of the options in the poll. And there’s DEFINITELY not a better songwriter than Greg Barnett of The Menzingers. Jesse Lacey comes close, but no one else is in the same ballpark. Yeah, maybe some bands display superior guitar abilities (like ABR) and loud, fast drums, but in my opinion, it’s a collective effort...and the lyrics definitely have to be above the rest. And these bands just don’t have that (in my opinion). And 2Pac still, by far, the best rapper ever!

For me it came down to While She Sleeps or Trivium. My favourite album of 2017 was Seaway's Vacation. Damn.

Brand New > Kendrick Lamar

 

Like, the first song I tried listening to off of "Damn" had the lyric "Pussy so good!" Great, another rapper going on about weed, beating people up, and pussy... Explain to me again why he's considered to be one of the best rappers? His voice also sucks...

As brilliant as Lamar is, his music bores me to sleep.

Kendrick's previous album was AOTY material. DAMN, not so much. I'm just glad the KL admins didn't rig it so make DGD win again :).

Can we elect DGD as 2018 AOTY and skip to 2019 already? ,(

Palisades is still album of the year in my books.


DAMN was #1 on every major website/publication list. I thought KL was better than this.

I love Kendrick, but in the hip-hop genre Brockhampton and Big K.R.I.T.  was so good, but i'm ok with Kendrick winning, a little bit dissapointed with the way Trivium performed, they were my pick.

Damn was a pretty big disappointement compared to his last album and many other Hip Hop albums but it could have been much worse, at least none of the memes like AA, Wage War, Palisades, or MiW won

I hoped for Enter Shikari to win, but at least it wasn't last.

 

I don't know why Kendrick Lamar is such a popular guy now. I haven't heard about him before DAMN.

He performs rap music - and it's not the genre I like. For me every rap song sounds almost the same.

Completely agreed. 

Definetly not AOTY but at least better than a good 80% of the core things which came out last year.

It's also the first time a hip-hop album won AOTY on KL.

I really love KL when we vote album of the year.

 

When Dance Gavin Dance win, I think ''yes''

When Kendrick wins, i think ''no''

Like, the first song I tried listening to off of "Science Fiction" had the lyrics " I seen those boys kissing boys // With their mouth in the street // But I raised my son to be a righteous man // I made it clear to him what fear of God means" Great, another alternative rock band going on about suicide, touching children inappropriately and hating gay people... Explain to me again why they are considered to be one of the best alternative rock bands? His voice also sucks...
