The Needle Drop


Anthony Fantano is The Internet’s Busiest Music Nerd, and he lives up to his title. Putting out album reviews almost every single day, Fantano can take care of your new music needs for all time, and being a regular viewer almost becomes a way of life. Because Fantano has well over a thousand videos, I will only be covering the tip of the iceberg on this page, but it’s worth noting that the appeal of Fantano’s reviews is less about the depth of the analysis, and more about constantly discovering new and interesting music.

Prolific Poster: Because this analyst is a prolific poster, likely as a result of having a regular post schedule, I may not share all or even most of their worthwhile posts. If you find that you enjoy the posts I’ve shared, you should definitely go to their site, check out more of their content, and possibly subscribe to their network.

(Because The Needle Drop has SO many album reviews, I decided not to bother figuring out which ones are worth sharing, and instead have listed only the general/non-specific posts he’s made.)
