Childish Gambino
Awaken, My Love!

Gambino's latest album is intriguing, dangerous, sexy, and most of all masterful in execution. A big step from his previous work, Childish Gambino crafts what could be the best funk album of the decade.

Rating - 8.9/10

BEST TRACKS: Boogieman, Riot, Terrified, Baby Boy, Redbone, Me And Your Mama

I'm going to steal a YouTube comment which pretty much sums up what this album was for me:

"Came for the bars, stayed for the funk."

A long awaited piece, while not a masterpiece it certainly mixes the funkedelic and soul of Gambino.
He has said before he would move away from rap, and he did. Wow, the biggest misser for me is the track "California" it mixes weird and the autotune creates an incredibly weird tune which doesn't mix well with the rest of the song.

However, Zombie, Stand Tall, Me and Your Momma, Redbone and Boogieman are all masterfully crafted songs. They lift this album to a whole new level.
