* EightPointEight: Excluding anything he's reviewed for ''Classics Week'', he has only ever given three albums a perfect 10, those being Music/DeathGrips' ''The Money Store'', {{Music/Swans}}' ''To Be Kind'' and Music/KendrickLamar's ''To Pimp a Butterfly''. Naturally, he gets this reaction ''a lot.'' It's can be pretty dumb when he gets this very often for not liking something ''enough'' by people who don't seem to realize that a six-to-eight score is a good score.
** 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, {{Music/Slowdive}}'s self-titled, and anything by Music/PorcupineTree/Music/StevenWilson, Music/{{Opeth}}, or Music/{{Alcest}}. His ''[[Music/{{OFWGKTA}} Channel Orange]]'' review also gets this a lot, despite that he gave it a strong 7 (which is quite a good score).

Added DiffLines:

** In the light of the news of Music/LinkinPark frontman Chester Bennington]]'s suicide, many have gone back to Anthony's scathing review of the band's album ''One More Light'' and jokingly claimed that his review was a factor that led to Bennington's death, even going as far as to say that Anthony had blood on his hands.

* HarsherInHindsight: Like many other scathing reviews of Music/LinkinPark's ''One More Light'', his review is this in light of Chester Bennington's death.

* HarsherInHindsight: Like many other scathing reviews of Music/LinkinPark's ''One More Light'', his review is this in light of Chester Bennington's death. He even had to put in the comments that while he still stands on his opinion on the album, that doesn't change his own condolences to Bennington's family/band mates after his suicide.


Added DiffLines:

** His accused biased behavior towards progressive metal/shoegaze/post-rock albums.

** After a music producer decided to go off on Anthony and call him a melon, the word has pretty much become Fantano's premiere nickname.

* BaseBreaker: His "NOT GOOD" series. 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 (ex: Corey Feldman's album) or it's just an excuse for him to bash acts he isn't fond of (as seen from the reception regarding his review of Music/Blink182's ''California'' and Music/{{Meshuggah}}'s ''The Violent Sleep of Reason'').

* BiasSteamroller: Mostly averted, but it does come up every now and then, typically either when he reviews an artist he never liked to begin with or when he feels a record lacks what he personally enjoys in a certain genre. His review of [[Music/PorcupineTree Steven]] [[Music/StevenWilson Wilson's]] otherwise-acclaimed ''The Raven That Refused To Sing'' was a [[NeverLiveItDown particularly notorious]] example of both, especially the former with his pre-existing dislike of Wilson and his purist attitude towards ProgressiveRock being ''very'' apparent throughout the review.
