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

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

I can take Teriyaki God, Hood Rich, and even like a third of Pink Season more seriously than this. I honestly really liked Thom and a bit of IDWWMT even though his singing is absolutely garbage on that track so I mean he has some talent that isn't showing on here
