After his amazing conceptual debut "Psychodrama" Dave returns with another incredible effort

Dave tackles issues in his community, racial injustices and discusses his past with great storytelling and vivid imagery

Production on the record is very smooth, even ethereal on the more somber tracks

The intro "We're All Alone" is a very strong start to the record being a two part song. Following, "Verdansk" and "Clash" are both bangers and "In The ... read more

We're All Alone In This Together is Dave's sophomore album and it takes you on an incredible journey. Dave paints the world with all its problems, hiding nothing from the listeners, being as raw and real as you can get, giving us his unfiltered view on life, using just his lyrics. The album doesn't come close to lacking in the production, an issue listeners had on the last album, with James Blake stepping in to add colors to Dave's painting, using pianos in pretty ways and adding soothing ... read more

Towards the end of Heart Attack, the music drops out and all that remains is Dave’s voice; when the doleful piano returns, it feels superfluous. It underlines the fact that the primary impression left by WAAITT isn’t really a sonic one – there is no dominant sound here. Rather, its multiplicity speaks to Dave’s expansive intentions. Whether he is using his imagination or speaking from experience, he is engaged in a noble venture to articulate pain that many people would ... read more

While this is definitely a flawed album, Dave’s talent lyrically and his storytelling make this a enjoyable listen regardless.

I didn’t know much about Dave before listening to this album: I had seen people talk about Dave’s last album, and I saw his performance at the BRIT awards, but this was my first time actually listening to a project from Dave. And while this is a solid album, there are just a lot of flaws that hold it back from being great.

While I do like this album ... read more

I first gave this album an 80 but I relistened and thought that was honestly a disrespectful score.

This album, suprisingly, blew me away. I know of Dave's talents, I know of his unbelievable wordplay, but even with this known, this album STILL blew me away.

The big conversation in hip-hop is always who will be the next K-Dot? The next J Cole? He's right infront of you. It's sad that Dave will probably never be globally seen as one of the best lyricists of our time due to the stigma against ... read more

Like Psychodrama, this is very much an album for the immigrants of London - and, as a first-gen immigrant in London, a lot of the themes throughout this project connected deeply with me. It's understandable that those outside of London don't quite understand what's so special about this album, but hearing such a sound from a rapper who had a similar upbringing rife with identity crises and self-hatred as a minority, and seeing where he is today as a man is nothing short of remarkable... and ... read more

On one hand, Dave continues to strive as a fantastic storyteller and I absolutely appreciate what he has to say throughout this records runtime, but for every fantastic track we get a track that's totally substanceless and generic, as well as moments where the lyricism is completely brought down by the incredibly flat production.

LET'S FUCKING GOO DAVE TALK TO THESE NIGGAS.

Uk Hip Hop prodigy is back with his sophomore debut and i got to say, even tho it's not as lyrically content as PSYCHODRAMA, holy shit the production is a massive improvement. It's just banger after banger after banger. I'm gonna be bumping this so hard for the rest of the summer

Best Tracks: In The Fire, Heart Attack, We're All Alone

so. Dave is back.

his 2019 debut Psychodrama, while it has grown off me over time, remains an ambitious and frequently touching statement on mental health framed around a therapy session - as middle of the road the beats are and inconsistent the tracklist is, I still find it to be a compelling album that culminates in the masterpiece of Lesley. and, my instant criticism of his 2nd album, We're All Alone In This Together, comes in its similarities to Psychodrama. there's even more filler tracks ... read more

Wow.

Not in a long time have I listened to an album where nearly every single bar blows me away in either how clever, funny and/or heartwrenching, I’m so impressed at how Dave has somehow become an even better writer and lyricist, as Psychodrama was already a fantastically written album, but the biggest improvement here is the production and vocal performances from Dave. The production is much more interesting and well mixed, allowing for it to compliment the way more ... read more

Dave's sophomore album takes a nice direction in a more introspective and political leaning with a more softer sound, one which is filled with more emotional than Psychodrama, and it works very well when everything comes together but by i get to the 2nd part, nothing seems to stick with me and with most of the features not adding much substance to the record and the record being quite one beat throughout and at an hour long but the time side B is on, i feel i have already indulged every which ... read more

Should've got J Hus on Lazarus instead.

Good but so messy. A mix of sounds that doesn't work that much.

We're All Alone In This Together is the new album from Dave, a UK Rapper praised for his debut LP Psychodrama (haven't listened to it) and before this we got the single Clash ft. Stormzy. A track that still within the album sounds clunky and just underwhelming. There are definitely some really good songs on here but, with these high highs, came some low lows. First of all, the topics are kinda random. He talks about racism and ... read more

Dave proving once again that he's one of the most engaging people in hip-hop and is a very good storyteller. Also, a big improvement with the instrumentals on his second album - We're All Alone In This Together.

I was planning on hearing this yesterday, but after checking out the Donda livestream I got pretty tired and just relaxed before going to bed. Anyhow, I definitely should've given this album the time, because it's actually really solid. Santan Dave's sophomore album "We're All Alone In This Together" is a record that features potent and poignant lyricism, delivering social commentary that hits hard and sounds ground. Whilst the opening half of the record does contain some rough ... read more

Boys and girls, this is a tough review. One the one hand, Dave delivers the storytelling mastery he showed on Psychodrama. Look no firward than Three Rivers to find it in spades. However, for every socially conscious call to arms, there is a Clash. Clash is a generic, hollow, boring victory lap about his fame and swag. That is the story of this project, it's of two minds. Half is excellent, half is generic garbage over mind numbingly generic drill. Dave is better than this and needs a quick ... read more

“We’re All Alone In This Together” is a great album, for sure, with a great production - not too generic like the old ones - and awesome rap skills and lyrics by Dave, but some aspects in it made it a little hard to digest, like in the songs “In The Fire” and “Heart Attack”, they have awesome lyrics but they are too long, making it very exhaustive in some parts, and the massive 10 minutes of the track “Heart Attack” with he just rapping ... read more

After coming through with a stellar debut on 2019’s PSYCHODRAMA, UK rapper Dave follows it up with the even better We’re All Alone In This Together. There is no sophomore slump in sight, as Dave not only brings it on a lyrical level, but the album as a whole has a great narrative around his mother that keeps throughout a majority of these tracks. The album doesn’t just deal with his own mothers sacrifices and struggles to make it though her life to seek a better future for her ... read more

Amazing album. Dave is able to make such excellent and raw music that not many are able to. I gotta say that this one might have topped his previous project ‘Psychodrama’.
Fav. tracks: Verdansk, Both Sides Of A Smile (feat. James Blake)

Um álbum de rap decente e interessante 👀. O melhor de tudo são os instrumentais que são lindos. Em heart attack fiquei desesperado no final, a mulher no final tava chorando muito e eu não entendo inglês, fiquei sem saber oque ela falou.
