Henry Seitz says:

So glad you covered the rival consoles record. I haven’t seen many people discussing it so it great to see it getting some of the love it deserves

ThomT94 says:

I’ve not heard any of these albums so I can’t comment on them, though I will check some of them out

But…. Leicester in the north?

annika anna says:

which track is he mentioning in the last part of rival consoles’ album review? i can’t catch it even with lowering the speed of the video.

charline jedrey says:

I wonder what do you think of the Here Come The Warm Jets from Eno ?

Nrosado95 says:

Damn, dude, really? No Kali Uchis OR Saba? Both are arguably better than every album you reviewed in this video and both have been criminally overlooked. Would’ve been cool to hear your thoughts on them :/

David Cremin says:

Dirty Computer is such an amazing album for all of us dirty computers

Joel Robinson says:

“…which is an (adjective) and (adjective) record” – Deep Cuts every 30 seconds

Ryan Smith says:

Jean Grae and Quelle Chris? Really digging that one, meself.

ivan ooze says:

that Rival consoles album sounds great, thanks for the recommendation. Have you heard the nts sessions from autechre yet, what do you think?

Doc Sportello says:

Alva Noto – Unieqav….

Dimitrije Radjenovic says:

hey can u make a guide to Oneohtrix Point Never?

Alan Raeburn says:

New Wye Oak album is brilliant.

Pretzels722 says:

Am I in the minority here? Janelles new album was a huge step back

Breakbearrr says:

Gareth Liddiard from The Drones has a new band called Tropical Fuck Storm and they dropped a good album the other day. Wasn’t as solid front-to-back as most Drones albums are but it has some serious highlights.

Cartoonyworld109 says:

i think it would be really cool if you did a guide to The Beach Boys, or at least their experimental albums from 1965-1977. They’re incredible, but not many people know about them!

Tamás Károlyi says:

Why is Autechre: NTS Sessions 1-4 missing? Okay, I see, it will get an own video…, will it?

futaenokiwami48 says:

The lack of Kimbra- Primal heart makes me really sad :c

Sam John says:

Rival consoles and Janelle underwhelmed me, but Flatbush was fire you’re wrong and i hate you.

Reuben says:

You should talk about Drexciya or Lifestyles of the Laptop Cafe by The Other People Place

Nick ward says:

lol hair looking extra poof

Benjamin Luque says:

I know bad albums are part of the experience for a music listener, but since you only review a hand full of albums I’ll just say I would enjoy to see more recomended albums rather than bad ones

Daniel Xu says:

did you give Hop Along’s new album a listen? i loved it!

Paul Allen says:

What do you make of the way the Vive la Void album is shaping up? I’m looking forward to it after what I have heard.

Klosth says:

My god, I had forgotten this channel existed. YouTube stopped putting your stuff in my home tab or subs tab. Glad to be back!

Walker Nickel says:

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Autechre NTS Sessions!!

Eduardo Santillán says:

Richie Edward’s lyrics are incredible but Nicki Wire has penned some of the Manics greatest songs like A Design For Life, If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next, The Masses Against The Classes, etc… I liked your review of the new album, agree on everything you said

Lucas Moraes says:

Hey Oliver, do you listen to music related podcasts? If so can you name some? Great video as always!

Andrew Lynch says:

You mentioned with Dirty Computer you found yourself getting really into certain tracks. Any particular standouts for you?
