** Standouts are his reviews of Childish Gambino's ''Camp'' and ''Because the Internet'', Music/JustinTimberlake's ''The 20 20 Experience,'' Music/KanyeWest's ''Yeezus,'' Arctic Monkeys AM, and anything by PorcupineTree or Music/{{Opeth}} that didn't get a perfect score (which, since he is a fan of neither, is all of them). His ''[[{{OFWGKTA}} Channel Orange]]'' review also gets this a lot, despite that he gave it a Strong 7 (which is quite a good score). Basically, if he disagrees with the general consensus about an otherwise-beloved artist, he's gonna get a lot of shit for it.

** His "NOT GOOD" reviews, mainly due to those who feel it's BiasSteamroller.



** Though he's still not anything close to a fan, he likes Childish Gambino's more recent work ''muuuuuuch'' more than ''Camp.''

* BaseBreaker: His "NOT GOOD" series. And ''how''.

* BaseBreaker: His "NOT GOOD" series. And ''how''. It's either one of Anthony's best ideas and allows to him to go into more detail regarding why an album can be horrible in his eyes (Corey Feldman's album) ''or'' it's a blatant BiasSteamroller for him to shit on acts he isn't fond on (as seen from the reception regarding his review of Music/Blink182's ''Calfornia'' and Music/{{Meshuggah}}'s ''The Violent Sleep of Reason'').

* BiasSteamroller: Averted for the most part, but one has to wonder on his review of [[Music/PorcupineTree Steven]] [[Music/StevenWilson Wilson's]] ''The Raven That Refused To Sing'' if he's mostly just annoyed at Steven Wilson's 70's-prog-purist attitude and it's affecting his opinion. Likewise, his review of [[DonaldGlover Childish Gambino's]] album ''Camp'' was ''extremely'' negative, for all the valid criticisms, to the point where it almost seems OutOfCharacter. He's never been that heated about an album before, even giving Chief Keef's album and the aforementioned Steven Wilson's albums higher scores.

* InternetBackdraft: ''The review of [[Music/DeathGrips The Powers That B]]'' is seen as this for some people. This mainly came for the fact that many fans expected Anthony to give an album he had been intensely awaiting for (mainly ''Jenny Death'') a perfect rating, but instead gave it an [[EightPointEight 9/10]]. This was mainly due to the fact Anthony had ''already'' given a perfect rating to Music/{{Kendrick Lamar}}'s ''To Pimp a Butterfly''. It doesn't help Anthony showed annoyance in the comment section about viewer's overdramatic responses to this.

** Basically the default reaction to Anthony giving an EightPointEight rating.

** His review on ''Dark Sky Paradise'' by Music/BigSean, consisting of him constantly saying [[NoJustNoReaction "No" over and over]], even giving it a [[FunnyMoments "NO out of NO" rating]]. Even funnier when this was put on ''the album's [[Website/{{Wikipedia}} Wikipedia page]]''.
