. "Sweet Life," "Thinkin’ ‘Bout You," "Bad Religion," "Super Rich Kids," "Pyramids"-- they feel already not just like timeless classics, but like generation-affirming proof that timeless classics might still be a thing.


Super Rich Kids? Really dawgs?
probably because it has an Earl verse

their writers dont pick the scores.

That shits dumb so the writers write something and then a random person gives it an arbitrary score based on the review?

I believe Ryan (the CEO/founder) gives the score.

it happens a lot. asap got BNM last year and didnt end up on their list.
that's kinda odd to me, but again it happens with a lot of different publications lists.
If you think Death Grips put out 2 AOTY worthy records IDK what to tell you, man

I don't think either of Death Grips' two albums were top 10 material, but I liked NLDW a little bit more than TMS.

Find that hard to believe

Find that easier to believe and dumb
I think it's dumb, but again it's just a rumor I've heard from other people from other publications who I trust. either way I don't care.

It just frustrates me that they have really talented writers on the staff who don't make everything so overblown and bloated and they're writing glowing reviews for albums that didn't make the cut.
Of course I'm bias(ed? I always forget) because I love the dude but Bada$$ short blurb in the HM section is great




And Trust got the shaft, bigtime
that Bada$$ tape is the truth, definitely made my top 50

No. Top metal album was in like the 40s and converge was 2.
that's a damn shame. metal is so under-represented on P4K, especially in a year with a bunch of killer releases.
