( ☆☆½ ) — inconsistently enjoyable
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.

this guy is just really boring to me but if its what you like whatever floats your boat.
Come on bruh why you gotta release a majority of your debut album as singles.
Which Way Is Forward? Is the the short debut album from Danny Brown collaborator, Afro, Spoken word and modern soul singer Obongjayar.
Each track features uplifting messages, cloudy vocals and beautiful choruses over jazzy instrumentals. The first half of the album is great but it weakens a bit towards the end. All round there is potential but this project is way too short.
