Childish Gambino
Awaken, My Love!

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.

An absolute monster of an album. This album chugs along like some sort of giant, hulking locomotive. It can go from chaos, to near silence, to absolute chaos again without even beginning to lose or confuse me in all the mayhem. Gira can express a whole exciting range of emotions with just one drawn out word. Would be AOTY 2014 if not for RTJ2.

Highlights: She loves us, A Little God In My Hands, Bring The Sun/Toussaint L'Overture.
Low Points: Some Things We Do.

I thought that 'Streethawk' was a near-masterpiece of an album for its engaging, pop hooks, impressive lyrical work, and amateur feel. 'Rubies' is what I would call the grown-up version of that album and I truly think that Dan has made his masterpiece here with one of the most monstrous rock albums of the 2000's.

Favourite tracks: Rubies, Your Blood, Painter in Your Pocket
