This album's not bad, some of the songs are great (Sacrifices, Passionfruit, Ice Melts), of course it's too long and has a lot of filler but yeah I'm digging it. Not a great ablum in terms of consistent sound and themes, but I think Drake doing his take on a bunch of types of songs, Trap, dancehall, grime, is cool.

This album is really excellent. World class production work, beautiful Spanish vocals, consistent themes, gut punch arrangements, well-sequenced. No faults here. Album is top of the game.

No originality or risks in the music, and a complete and utter lyrical facepalm - and I fucking love VW. This record sucks.

The production is weak and the guitars sound bad. It doesn't really bring anything new to the table, and its brevity and lack of focus don't really provide it any cohesion or themes.

Tight conceptually, and a good blend of americana and salsa, but I wish it reached more and hit some bigger, more anthemic moments.
