I see so much hit potential in this guy. He has a great voice, he’s a strong songwriter, he has natural charisma, and he’s surrounded by a team and label that has the ability to market someone into radio popularity (i.e. The Weeknd & Nav). I do feel like he still needs to find a signature sound because there are times where I felt that he too heavily emulates The Weeknd. But this project overall was a little unfocused but still a strong and atmospheric project.

All I knew of Black Atlass before this project was that he was signed to The Weeknd’s XO label, which is the main reason I decided to check this out. And I’m glad I did. This project isn’t groundbreaking or anything, and some songs are a little samey and generic, but overall it’s a really enjoyable and really solid body of work with some well written, produced, and performed tracks.

Man. Wow. Was not expecting this when I first listened to it. XO took this guy under it’s wing not long ago and it’s been straight uphill from there. Massive improvement on all fronts and catchy as ever. Perfect album to relax to. Was gonna give it a nine, still might at some point, but Drip brings it down a bit, still a good song though.
Quite good new-wave R&B album. The production is interesting and I don’t expect anything else from anXO album. Let’s see where he takes it from here.
What a incredible and catch experience. His voice is SO good, the songs are excellent and the album production is impeccable. The only song that didn't impress me so much was "sin city", but I liked it.

Favorite tracks: Close Your Eyes, Do For Love, Night After Night, By My Side and On Your Mind
