** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMgfRyK7ikY The review of]] WesternAnimation/PeppaPig's "My First Album" ''begins'' with Anthony getting interrupted by Cal and having to redo his intro multiple times. [[MindScrew Then things get weird]].

Added DiffLines:

** Anthony's review of Blarf's "Cease & Desist" consists of him belching for 4 straight minutes after a quick intro.


** Occasionally this is [[InvertedTrope inverted]], sometimes receiving a ton of flak for giving a moderately positive review of certain artists. Some of the most biggest cases of this are Music/{{Skrillex}}'s ''Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites'', both of Lil Yachty's ''Lil Boat'' mixtapes, and Music/LilPump's self-titled album, which he [[NeverLiveItDown infamously]] gave the same score he [[EightPointEight 8.8'd]] Music/KendrickLamar's ''DAMN.''

To a milder extent, he also tends to get some backlash for praising [[ItsPopularNowItSucks much more commercial and mainstream pop fare]] such as Music/ArianaGrande's ''Thank U, Next'' or Music/BillieEilish's ''Music/WhenWeAllFallAsleepWhereDoWeGo''.


* InternetBackdraft:
** Basically the default reaction to Anthony giving an EightPointEight rating.
*** ''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 a [[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 overreacting responses to this.
*** Speaking of ''TPAB'', when Kendrick's next album ''DAMN.'' dropped, many expected Anthony to give it another great rating. To say that people were unhappy when he gave the album a [[spoiler:7/10]] is quite the understatement.
** ''Everyone'' was showing annoyance and frustration when Anthony [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal killed off Cal Chuchesta]]]], although some think it's just Anthony doing it as a long RunningGag, knowing his fans love [[spoiler:Cal]].
** After THATISTHEPLAN was terminated by Anthony due to his being fed up with the constant demonetization, fans were ''enraged'' at not Anthony, but [=YouTube=] itself.

* HilariousInHindsight: Anthony removing the Music/DeathspellOmega review of ''The Furnaces of Palingenesia'' due to allegations of the band being "fascist" becomes this when the band would issue an interview (their first one since ''2004'') and make it clear they ''don't'' support authoritative views, being evidently critical of it.


** Anthony privatizing the Music/DeathspellOmega review for ''The Furnaces of Palingenesia'' is this for many people: Some feel Anthony is in the right for privatizing the review in light of the controversy surrounding the band in regards to ([[EpilepticTrees implied]]) vocalist Mikko Aspa and his [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment political views]]) and there are those who absolutely find it hypocritical considering he had reviewed the band's earlier works (along with Burzum's other content) and also reviewed individuals who are as bad as Aspa (such as [=6ix9ine=]). There are no middle ground arguments and [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment some best kept off this site]].

Added DiffLines:

** Anthony's review of ''Ventura'' by Anderson Paak. At the end of the video, he discusses the tribute that Anderson Pakk made to Nate Dogg, and how heartfelt it was. He gets very emotional and starts to tear up and lightly cry before it cuts away. It's rare to see him getting so emotional in a review, and its a really powerful and moving moment.


** His accused biased behavior towards progressive metal/shoegaze/post-rock albums.
*** This especially when it comes down to his endless snark towards Music/StevenWilson.
** His giving both Lil Yachty's ''Lil Boat'' and ''Lil Boat 2'' mixtapes as well as Lil Pump's self-titled mixtape a [[spoiler:7/10]], which many saw as egregiously high.

* BrokenBase: 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 (eg. Corey Feldman's album) or it's just an excuse for him to indulge in his biases and bash acts and genres he isn't fond of (as seen from the reception regarding his reviews of Music/Blink182's ''California'' and Music/{{Meshuggah}}'s ''The Violent Sleep of Reason'').

** Anthony's review of ''A Crow Looked At Me'' by Mount Eerie is a more somber affair than usual. No opening joke, no Cal and no weird editing tricks are present, which given [[CreatorBreakdown the intensely personal and heartbreaking nature of the album]] is probably one of Anthony's most mature videos to date, with the description simply stating: "This album is about death."
** The shutting down of THATISTHEPLAN. Fans were surprisingly upset when Anthony vented his frustrations on Twitter in regards to shutting down the channel due to Youtube's constant demonitization of any video uploaded to the channel and decided to pull the plug. Most of his comedic/non-review retrospective stuff however goes to his fantano channel now.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments: After Anthony closed down THATISTHEPLAN, The Fader published a thinkpiece that accused him of being involved with the alt-right based on [[QuoteMine completely]] [[SarcasmBlind misconstrued]], [[ManipulativeEditing fabricated]], or [[InsaneTrollLogic downright illogical]] allegations, even going as far as to accuse Fantano of laughing along someone he was interviewing who was talking about wanting to commit sexual assault[[note]]As Fantano pointed out, as while the interview said controversial things, Fantano himself was evidently nervous and wasn't comfortable with it '''at all'''[[/note]]. The result? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UZqIIy7pAk Fantano responds back, calmly but completely deconstructing and wrecking the entire article]].

** The [[EightPointEight fan reaction]] towards ''[[Music/KendrickLamar DAMN.]]'''s 7/10 rating and [[NeverLiveItDown the constant dogging that Anthony received over it]] makes his harsh second opinions of the album on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90xeylVOooE Ten Times I Changed My Opinions on Albums Pt.2]] even more scathing than they would've been without the historical context behind it.


** Comments, especially on his "fantano" channel, like to refer to Fantano as a wallet salesman due to his frequent sponsorships from Ridge Wallets. Oftentimes, people will jokingly questions why a "wallet salesman" would be reviewing music in the first place.
