while IGLOOGHOST’S debut album displayed a large array of talent for producing, it didn’t capture environment and atmosphere to the fullest potential that it could have. It reused the same annoying sample non stop and while it’s a good project... I didn’t see this coming around the corner

While it may be the weaker release of the two, Steel Mogu has its perks, taking a while to get into its groove but managing to astonish you in its final half.
