All snippets from Montero are very good. The promotion is amazing, aesthetics are beautiful and for sure he will campaign hard. If he gets good reviews and album makes good results on sales and streaming, I think he will be one of the front runners for Album of the year.
Lil Nas X already has a couple hits under his album. If it does become successful similarly to PLANET HER, he can surprise. (

Ariana is not happening in AOTY.September 16, 2021 at 4:20 pm #1204464221
MONTERO is already out for me in the UK. I’m about over halfway through the album and I’ve skimmed the rest, and it’s not terrible but nothing special imo…
All I’ll say is, I wouldn’t bet on this being nominated in any album categories. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not terrible, just nothing special. But that’s my opinion anyway.September 16, 2021 at 4:22 pm #1204464224
no lol I mean I wouldn’t dance to that Yeezus beat but Believe What I Say is up there as a better container.
where is evermore under your favorite albums?!!!! 😡
FYC: Grammys 2022
ALBUM OF THE YEAR
evermore - Taylor Swift
SOUR - Olivia Rodrigo
El Último Tour Del Mundo - Bad Bunny
Starting Over - Chris Stapleton
positions - Ariana Grande
Daddy’s Home - St VincentSeptember 16, 2021 at 5:37 pm #1204464425
Who is really the frontrunner for AOTY this year?
Sour and Happier Than Ever lead the odds to win.
I wonder if there might be any obscure choices by the academy in AOTY this time, it’ll be kind of boring if the noms end up matching most of the GoldDerby expectations. I think Lana Del Rey, Bo Burnham, Arlo Parks, Wolf Alice, Bruce Springsteen, St. Vincent, Paul McCartney and Floating Points could upset as one of those unexpected spots.
FYC | Best music this season:
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams
St. Vincent - Daddy's Home
Jazmine Sullivan - Heaux Tales
Tyler, The Creator - Call Me If You Get Lost
Wolf Alice - Blue WeekendSeptember 16, 2021 at 6:40 pm #1204464558This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 16, 2021 at 8:13 pm #1204464659

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not terrible, just nothing special. But that’s my opinion anyway.
I wonder why people actually felt it was gonna be something major. Lil Nas X is yet another teen popstar, and not even the good kind. He’s basically Katy Perry 2.0 with some slightly less appealing hits.September 16, 2021 at 8:53 pm #1204464750
The new Lil Nas X release by the way is NOT bad.
His producers did appreciably well, in my opinion. In terms of lyricism, it does fall flat quite often. Performance-wise, he needs some work too. But the general vibe ain’t bad at all, but not “OMG, the next Radiohead???”
I feel, with this record, he’s really establishing his POP sound, becoming more and more a POPSTAR by the day, and that’s really cool by me. I like that he sounds like he knows what he wants. This project is nowhere near “pRoGrEsSiVe R&B” or any other genre. Should be submitted straight to pop.
It’s around a 6.7 out of 10 for me right now, I might make a more in-depth review later. HUGE step up from that debut nightmare of an EP. Really wishing him the best in his career.September 16, 2021 at 8:59 pm #1204464762
On this note, officially adding Lil Nas X to the following:
1. Album of the Year and Pop Vocal Album for MONTERO.
2. Record of the Year for “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” Pop Solo Performance seems a bit insulting given that the category is labelled “performance” and all, but I don’t doubt he’d get in there as well.
3. Possible Melodic Rap for “INDUSTRY BABY” with Jack Harlow.September 16, 2021 at 9:35 pm #1204464810
Montero is about what I expected: uninspired but listenable pop-rap music. Once you remove the visuals and persona, there just isn’t a lot of fun to had. I knew Lil Nas’ monotone vocals and the lyrics were probably be mostly meh. But I did expect bigger, catchier hooks or more interesting production, and the album didn’t deliver on that front. It ain’t good but not as bad as his EP. That’s the best I can give it.September 16, 2021 at 9:37 pm #1204464814
where is evermore under your favorite albums?!!!! 😡

Yup have all the same predictions for him and obviously Best Music Video for “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)”September 16, 2021 at 10:56 pm #1204464895
The Guardian and The Independent give Montero a perfect score, critics most likely love the album. That being said I think Lil Nas X has greater chance to be nominated for AOTY than Drake and KanyeSeptember 16, 2021 at 11:03 pm #1204464897
Montero will likely get overall solid reviews. I’m expecting high 70s, low 80s with the final MC score. He’s one of the most buzz about artists of the past year, is the first mainstream queer male artist making unabashedly/aggressive gay-themed music, and the album balances out “emotional” tracks with obvious radio tracks. It’s a recipe for overall critical approval.
