No, i'm not fucking kidding. Hobo Johnson may have made one of the best records of the year.

Hobo Johnson, as you all may know, has been a decisive artist for sure. His last project was one of the worst reviewed and revived records of the year it came out, and the label that Hobo's music was nothing but pretentious garbage was labeled pretty quickly. While I pretty much disliked Hobo's last album, I saw a flood load of potential for the dude, and was eager to hear where he would go next. Is he ... read more
"This is self-pity and marketed depression for degenerate teenagers from the the upper class and associative cryptopedophiles"

You can think that this sentence sums up "The Fall of Hobo Johnson". But, personally, I cannot believe the backlash this album has received in recent days.

The themes of mental health are pretty respectable and I actually found myself jaw-dropped at some of the lyrics here.

The Rise Of Hobo Johnson is one of my all-time least favourite albums.
I thought as a person, Hobo was humiliating.
I thought what he was rapping about and his style was terrible.

Almost 2 full years later Hobo Johnson has released his newest album and for the most part, only one of the above remains the same.

Not only did I never expect to listen to another of this dude's albums I certainly never expected to ENJOY something he released,
