The former YouTube star’s debut EP establishes a decent R&B mood but proceeds to wallow in thin, underdeveloped emotions.


This EP is a punchline to me. I think this is actually worse than Pink Season... an album so bad that it only has value in watching other people take it seriously.

This is supposed to be taken seriously. It’s horribly written, painfully uninteresting, and Joji’s singing is unbearable.

Production is sweet and gentle at times. It’s intolerable at other times.

Worst song by far is Bitter Fuck, it is my #1 least favorite song of 2017

📝 Top Note ✍️
This album consists of a wide range of Lofi sounds and Joji's proliferous lyrical talents. At it's best, it's a alright piece of work with some flaws but nice otherwise, at it's worse: it is cringe lyrics, messy production, and lost potential. This album is a mixed bag, and not a good one. It's a waste of time.
