If you've been keeping up with The Needle Drop for a little while, you're probably aware of the phrase "Y'all know this is just my opinion, right?" For the past few years, it has been the closing line of every review's description box. It's really something that goes without saying for the vast majority of our audience, but some folks just don't get it and assume that Anthony is under the impression that his opinion is superior to everyone else's.

I thought it'd be funny to start up a new feature that curates the bitter comments left by these people, as a sort of "wall of shame." So, I pored over all the vitriol from the past month, took screenshots of the cream of the crop, and arranged them below. Hover over them to see which videos they come from; you might also find little annotations by me, but most of the comments speak for themselves. A lot of it is simply butthurt, but there are occasional bits of reason. I did my best not to include overt shitposts (as funny as they can be), so if any made it in here, they got me good.

Let us know what you think. If y'all like the idea of this sort of comment gallery, we'll keep it going. Maybe we should include positive comments next time? Maybe we should just stop? For now, this is it:

These first two comments are from the Lil Ugly Mane - Oblivion Access review. Fair point, though the second guy's got his head up his ass a little bit.

From the Savages - Adore Life review. If you can commend Yelawolf's fans for anything, it's their persistence.

From the David Bowie - Blackstar review. There were tons of comments like this, most shitposts. Alec here seems like a genuine prick though.
