The album sonically goes every which way—a double-edge sword that can make for a dizzying, disjointed listen at times. Still, ? is X’s most stimulating offering to date and with a little more focus on structure and cohesion, X’s best work could very well be ahead of him.

The Needle Drop

X makes some improvements on the mixing, singing, and songwriting fronts with ?, but the album is still a mixed bag consisting mainly of half-baked song ideas.


This exercise in granting credence to emotionally stunted, bad musicians is something that is truly stunning to bare witness to.

Much like Phillip, I used to like this album. I was an edgy 15 year old who was completely swallowed by this fake deep album. The worst memory I have with this is when I bought this on vinyl OVER FUCKING ILLIMATIC BECAUSE I THOUGHT THIS WAS BETTER. WHAT THE FUCK YOUNG ME.

Anyways, I relistened to this yesterday with an “open mind” just like the mastrubatory intro told me to. ... read more
If a rapid look on the track-titles doesn't turn one off immediately, the whole 'how to approach' thing will. If not, well, all the rest will provide enough self-imposed punishment.
How the fuck did I used to enjoy this shit??

My guy gave instructions on how to enjoy this album because it's so difficult to enjoy and calls himself a genius for making this album.

His sleepy, drowsy singing (if you can even call it singing) is so annoying and it's in all of the tracks. Its especially poor when paired with some of the cheap tacky production found on tracks like "the remedy for a broken heart (why am I so in love)" and "pain=BESTFRIEND".
