Really short but still feels like a drag, really repetitive with a sound that I just can't get into.

Best Track: Carry Come Carry Go
Worst Track: God's Own Children
I really liked this earlier in the year when it came out, and I've worn it out a little bit by listening to it over and over again, but this is a really soulful and well put-together album that's very enjoyable through its short 23 minute playtime, and it deserves more than a user score of 67 imo.
Obongjayar almost has it, this is on the edge of being something special. Unfortunately the songs on this album are just solid and don't have much going for them beyond that, and all the tracks sound way too similar as well.
Damn. Thanks you Danny Brown for introducing us to this amazing musician.
This feels more like an EP than an album but it says the format is an LP so *shrug*. Which Way Is Forward? is 7 tracks of neoo-soul with jazzy production and great messages but it doesn't fully click with me and thus it doesn't stick with me after the 23 minutes are up but it is a solid attempt by Obongjayar and would love to see him create an album which is more fleshed out.
