CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

The reconfiguration is a slightly exaggerated way of exemplifying how Will This Make Me Good feels more surreal, fraught, and turbulent than Green Twins.

70
Clash

‘WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD’ is a thrilling, timely reminder that true art shines brightest when it emerges from the darkest skies.

70
Rolling Stone

It’s an engaging, sometimes muddled ... but frequently brilliant collection that expands the horizons of the already dexterous approach to psychedelic soul Hakim showcased on his excellent 2017 debut, Green Twins.

Exclaim!

Though without some of the magic of his debut, Hakim's sophomore full-length shows that he is still full of genre-bending potential.

60
Pitchfork

The Brooklyn musician stretches the boundaries of his psychedelic soul sound, yielding a record that alternates between hypnotic and languorous.

This sophomore outing from Brooklyn based artist, Nick Hakim, is an intelligible step up to an under-looked hypnagogic debut, Green Twins with sudden moments of emotive energy and undeniable singularity. Not a sophomore slump and definitely a must listen out of these week's stellar releases.

Even with many other well renowned artists releasing albums this Friday, this one was my most anticipated one. Will This Make Me Good is a very fun and sometimes a bit dark listen, very different from his first studio album Green Twins.

Nick Hakim drops a solid Lo-fi album that takes many of the problems he and others have faced and tries to make sense of it all. Although this whole project feels very scattered and unfocused, the muti-layered production, thought-provoking lyrics, and relaxing feel make this album a treat to listen to.

This mans Spotify bio is: “ All medicine is from the ground and that pains my brain because the snake oil salesmen sell their elixirs and tune these earth mined potions to control the minds of the people.”

So yea this album sounds exactly like what you’d expect from someone who thinks they’re super deep and next-level.
