Holy shit, this is actually good. I geniuinely didn’t expect to like anything else from this guy other than Revenge (I don’t even know what I was thinking when I pressed play on the EP with mainly songs from that mixtape, OK? I honestly didn't expect to like it and I forgot that some of these songs are on that album).

X brings two different sounds on here, almost singer-songwriter, and some sort of emo with all the emo type vocal deliveries and screaming, but none of them are that interesting or executed that nicely. This is above 'The Fall' for having some more interesting ideas added on to the sound that made that mixtape so boring.

Though I’ve never found myself enjoying Xxxtentacion’s studio albums too much, his earlier work was decent and Willy Wonka Was a Child Murderer is a perfect example of what I’m talking about.

Well, ok then.

FAV: Valentine

LEAST: Never
I feel like a lot of X's earlier work were better representations of his raw emotions. This EP has really like no rap songs, being traded for nu-metal type stuff that leans more towards an emo aesthetic. A lot of the melodies on this thing kind of took me a step back because it was quite beautiful at times. The low ends of this EP would be that the writing was fairly corny and edgy and the singing was not necessarily desirable at times.
