This record might just prove to be one of the career highlights of an artist who’s already had an astonishingly consistent career.

XXX might just represent the most polished and fully formed manifestation of street-meets-art rap so far.

It constantly toes the line between cool and cornball, between magnificent and mawkish, between sensational and schmaltzy, but it’s all pulled together by Drake’s inimitable personality and the genius of his producer.

Containing enough irony, humour and hyperactive, intuitive compositional development to infuriate academics and bewilder many, Far Side Virtual is a modern masterpiece in both an artistic and musical sense.

This is a record that’s as ice cold as it is sad; for those who find Drake too much to stomach it might be off-putting, but for fans of the Canadian, it might just mark the arrival of a brand new obsession.
