Abstract is a term that's been attached to many things in many mediums, whether it be in music, films or in another form. But to this day, I will still hold Black Up as the most abstract experience I've ever had, and one that I will endlessly love and be able to come back to due to its seemingly infinite nature, leaving you with a completely different feeling every time you adventure through the listening. THIS is abstract, this is what it means to not have something solid to hold upon and to ... read more

Acid Rap is the drugged up mixtape that rocket launched Chance's career, and to me I think I prefer this as an overall album more than Colouring Book. I think I prefer Colouring Book's individual songs more but Acid Rap just feels more cohesive, lively and individualistic with Chance's unique style that mixes together drugs, gospel, jazz, drugs, rap, hip hop and more drugs.

I genuinely don't think I've ever heard an artists adlib being used this much in an overall album, but I've grown ... read more

Blonde. Everything has been said already about this album, so I guess I'll just add on to the praising of it.

The infamous Mr Ocean's journey into claiming the hearts of everyone started most prominently with Channel Orange, an album that has stood the test of time and has proved to be one of the greatest R&B projects possibly of all time. I hold a soft spot for this album as one of the first non directly rap or hip hop albums I ever listened to. Although I've definitely overplayed this thing way too much, I still find myself loving it.

The theme of love drives Channel Orange, and it drives it ... read more

Coloring Book is a wonderful little mixtape that takes you through a blissful and simple experience. Chance knows exactly how to lift spirits with wonderful beats and nice vocals that results in a tape that is simply heavenly. Unfortunately, when Chance incorporates a few messy and horrifically generic rap tracks, it ruins the vibe that has been set up so carefully.

Positivity drives the entire track list, with No problem, Angels and All Night keeping an extremely bouncy and hyper mood. But ... read more
