    HÆLOS - FULL CIRCLE
    An absolute beast of a trip hop album. If you're looking for more Massive Attack or Portishead vibes this is absolutely what you should listen to. Drum work is exquisite, loud, brash and satisfying. 9/10

    Hello everybody, Filthony Iptano here, LPA's busiest music casual. Note this list includes only stuff released from January 1st to March 31st. The Q2 list will include April 1st to June 30th, and so on.

    THE FIVE /// Q1 2016

    01. DAVID BOWIE - ★
    A beautiful swan song from one of the greatest artists of all time.

    02. KENDRICK LAMAR - UNTITLED, UNMASTERED.
    The fact a collection of track that didn't make it on to To Pimp a Butterfly will undoubtedly be running for the best (rap) album of the year is amazing.

    03. KANYE WEST - THE LIFE OF PABLO
    If you were to list out all the flaws this album has, it'd take you a while. Nevertheless, it's still an enjoyable listen whose incredible highs sort of manage to make up for the abysmal lows.

    04. DE STAAT - O
    A sweet rock record that will have you head bobbing and, if it's your thing, bust out of a few moves.

    05. DEATH GRIPS - INTERVIEW 2016
    The walking, rarely talking madmen put out the soundtrack to their memorable, and highly informative interview, and it is sonically interesting to say the least.​

    THE THREE /// Q1 2016

    01. DAVID BOWIE - "LAZARUS"
    Along with it's stunning visual, "Lazarus" is an experience. Lyrically, melodically and sonically perfect, it is incredible what Bowie could do, even on his deathbed.

    02. KANYE WEST - "FML"
    Featuring the one and only The Weeknd, "FML" is one of the most focused tracks on Pablo. Unlike the rest of the album, which is messy to say the least, this song knows exactly where it's going and what it's about. An amazing listen.

    03. KENDRICK LAMAR - "UNTITLED 02 | 06.23.2014."
    Filth. No better way to describe it. I can't imagine what it was like for the producers of this track to know that godly beat is just sitting somewhere in Kendrick's vault for almost two years.​

    THE VISUAL /// Q1 2016

    You know Filip, I was going to read your post (started from the bottom post and was scrolling up), but since you thanked me for skipping it I skipped it.

    Also, I'm judging everyone who doesn't have Bowie's last album on their list. So hard. I'm looking at you, Blake and Michele.

    TOP ALBUMS

    01 DAVID BOWIE | BLACKSTAR
    02 KENDRICK LAMAR | UNTITLED. UNMASTERED.
    03 TERRACE MARTIN | VELVET PORTRAITS
    04 HAELOS | FULL CIRCLE
    05 PANIC! AT THE DISCO | DEATH OF A BACHELOR
    06 ANDERSON .PAAK | MALIBU
    07 IGGY POP | POST-POP DEPRESSION

    Looking forward to Radiohead, James Blake, Beyoncé

    Disappointed by M83's album

    Mildly satisfied with Kanye's album

    Update: Really loved Beyonce's album. Going to be a constant in my life from now on. 'Nother update: James Blake's album is also quite good.
