* 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.

** Standouts are his reviews of ChildishGambino'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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* JustHereForGodzilla: At one point, Anthony acknowledged that many people just watch his videos to see Cal.

** 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]]''.

** "''10/10''" [[note]]This is basically an inside joke within fans and DeathGrips fans when Anthony, who's known for his strict rating system, gave ''The Money Store'' a 10/10.[[/note]]

*** Case and point, the video has ''a lot of dislikes'' in comparison to his ''Raven'' review. Anthony is not amused. Although it's safe to say Wilson is sort of an UnacceptableTarget for reviews for Anthony.
*** This actually stems with ''anything'' with current progressive rock/metal style, such as his criticisms with DreamTheater's new style and {{Music/Between The Buried And Me}}'s new direction where he always complaints about how "sterile" and "clean" the music sounds, which end up leading to low scores. Doesn't help Anthony ''snarks every time'' when it comes to talking about current prog acts.

Yes, that's Anthony in the front row. With his head almost buried in MC Ride's crotch. In pure bliss. Note that besides ''Classics Week'', Music/DeathGrips' album ''The Money Store'' is the first 10/10 he ''ever'' gave.
