CRITIC REVIEWS

The 405

His latest album, and his best one at that, Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?!, is a fifteen track epic exploring the height of Milo's capabilities as an artist.

A.V. Club

Milo’s still firmly making experimental hip-hop, bridging various through-lines of mind-expanding boom-bap, but he’s also etching his way toward the center, his art getting clearer with each step.

Pretty Much Amazing

While Milo’s lyrical wit has remained sharp over the years, the beats he raps over have gotten better and better with every release, culminating in Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! as the best batch of beats he’s rapped over.

Tiny Mix Tapes

This is the crux of the album’s difficulty: it feels personal and scans as though it should be, but time and time again, it leaves me not quite sure whether I know a single thing about milo, the person.

milo is a sharp-tongued rapper whose wordplay rewards close listening. On his third and best LP, the Maine emcee carries the flag for the underground rap scene that birthed him.

The Needle Drop

Following up on its predecessor's sense of urgency, Who Told You to Think??!!?!?!?! is another thought-provoking abstract hip hop album under Milo's belt.

Milo definitely strongest suit is his lyrical content in how diverse and the message he is saying and it works well with the more mellow surreal instrumentals and production which creates this cryptic and philosophical aspect and with the features bring fresh air when it is needed but I do wish their was more straight bangers but as an overall experience it is very good but not every track sticks with you.

Milo very briefly switches things up and makes himself look like an asshole over barely experimental hip hop production.

YOU made me think, Milo. YOU did!

Edit: 85 -> 64

Yeah this has grown off of me a bit. I still do like the production and some of the songs like Sorcerer, Landscaping and Embroidering Machine are still enjoyable, but on many of the other songs, it just seems like Milo is just stringing big words together in an attempt to seem interesting.

Original review:

Don't really know why I decided to listen to this, but I'm glad I did. Milo puts together 15 mostly great lofi jazz rap tracks and enlists the help of some of the ... read more
