Pretty Much Amazing

Where Saturation feels more upfront, II feels more mischievous, a willingness to twist things to their own perception.

Each member secures at least two or three singular victories that will plant themselves in daydreams, playlists, and year-end debates. However, the biggest win is in the team striking lightning twice, a group of individuals demonstrating in one summer that they’re destined to create together.

The Needle Drop

Brockhampton offers more of the same with the second installment of their Saturation trilogy, which is fine because the group's sound is still so refreshing and cutting edge.

Ever since Brockhampton released those four fantastic singles in May, they have been on the radar of pretty much everyone that listens to rap music. Saturation was by far my most-listened to album of the summer; with everything from the beats to lyrics deeply resonating with me and never boring me even after 50 listens. And the fact that a handful of guys put it all together in only a month? Yeah, Brockhampton is something special.
