Re: 2021 Grammy Nominations

Also odd that Phoebe Bridgers is considered a new artist. If you take in mind her side projects with Boygenius and Better Oblivion Community Center this is her fourth album! I had the same reaction.

Re: Biggest Fan - The Album Edition 4 - Toy Love - Toy Love EP

Toy Love - 7/10 I can always trust on Brad to have solid power pop/jangle pop recommendations, and this EP fit that bill. "Squeeze" in particular really stood out to me as a strong track. Also, this might be the shortest album/EP I've ever listened to (the next shortest I can remember is Group Sex .

Re: Rob Climbs the Mountains of Music

Our forum did little better. Although we at least acknowledged the Japanese band with an appearance of their Long Season on our recent Album poll, for us 98.12.28 is also the highest unranked album from RYM. Sometimes I feel there is a reasonable overlap between RYM and AM, but in the end we all to...

KRS One - 6/10 I'm not really a fan of Boogie Down Productions, and I guess I'm not much of a fan of KRS-One's solo work either. By the time this album was released, we already had Biggie, A Tribe Called Quest, and 2Pac. And I don't think this album is on the same level as the best works by any of ...

And from my point of view, I find the three lists extremely similar (with RYM). When you see the percentage of albums in common in all three, and even more so if you look at a TOP500, it's very very very very American-Anglo centered! You don't realise how it's always the same albums or artists that...
