  1. This is so cool. I saw them on the tour after New Demons, but I think Treehouse takes them to the next level, would love to see them play those songs.
  2. I feel like this is a significant enough re-arrangement to justify the acoustic release. Treehouse is, in my opinion, their most fleshed out work so far and is definitely worthy of continuation.
  3. these cats must not remember Watch the Stove
  4. How so? I thought it brought about a nice change of pace, with some of their best guitar work in their discography. Jon Mess really pulled his weight on that one, as opposed to the most recent two where I felt like his sections were a drag on the rest of the song.
  5. I hope we see some reasonable change up for this album. The last couple seem to blend together to me. Not asking for a sea-change, of course, but when Eidola releases the best DGD album since 2013, I think we have an issue.
  6. I uh quite like this, though the A$AP verse wasn't fantastic. It did, however, fit the mood of the song. I never felt that the band fell off like some say, just a shift in styles. It's not a jam like The Kill, true, but it's rather well done.
  7. I wish XXXT was not a horrible person because I really love his stuff like this
  8. Probably his best Scallops work since Plain Speaking - Sedans and Private Temple Hours had me going in particular. Worth a look if you like his beatcrafting, of which there is plenty and excellence
  9. This was my biggest issue with the album. Yeah, it's well done and all, but I literally thought they had Tilian on guest vocals for the first track. I found their earlier work to be more engaging and more unique.
  10. How about a top 50 because I have edited my statement, 2 edgy. Every year, I expect to go into Album of the Year season stunned by the sheer number of excellent picks from other lists and websites, picking and choosing the best of the best only to end up filtering out many 8+/10 albums. That was not exactly the case this year. Maybe it's reflective of 2017 on the whole, but I felt like the general quality of music releases this year was not quite up to par with the last few years that I've done the list. It took until mid-December for an AOTY candidate to release that separated itself in some way from the pack. It seemed I could take a totally random pick off of RYM and it would belong on the list immediately as the competition wasn't as intense as I had been used to. 50.

Brockhampton - Saturation 9. Mathew Lee Cothran - Judas Hung Himself in America 8. Open Mike Eagle - Brick Body Kids Still Daydream 7. Slowdive - Slowdive 6. Nocando - Severed 5. Sixo - The Odds of Free Will 4. Brockhampton - Saturation II 3. Tyler, the Creator: Flower Boy 2. Brand New - Science Fiction 1. Brockhampton - Saturation III Without Brockhampton, I would've likely been left stranded as far as Album of the Year goes. Putting three albums from the same artist in the top ten is without precedent for me, let alone three albums released in six months. Each iteration of Saturation represented an improvement over the rest, culminating in what I needed to be AOTY: Saturation III. 2017 wasn't really a bad year in music or even necessarily a bad year overall, but nonetheless fell somewhat short of my expectations. Any of the top 10 from last year could've competed effectively with this year's picks. Godspeed. Our next steps forward are critical.
  11. Love Steadman's work, I'm reading Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail in '72 right now and this artwork could slot right in with like Nixon and Agnew featured. Gets me hype to listen.
  12. I've listened quite a few times, gotta say it definitely is AOTY for me. This group has impressed me beyond belief; I wasn't quite feeling Saturation when it first dropped, outside of HEAT. Incredible progression in 7 months.
  13. I wish Filecrypt was around back in the day when I was a mod, its such a cool service that would've benefited us a lot then. Sincerest thanks from me.
  14. One listen, gotta be AOTY, there isn't any other AOTYs out there. Not even Sat II is AOTY
  15. Joyner really nails his longer songs, his best works generally follow a narrative like this one. He's going interesting directions, as usual, great to see. Few rappers out there with both as much hype and potential as he has.
