Meek Mill - FLAMERZ 5
67
This honestly isn't half bad. While it's kinda hard to make out what Meek is saying at times, his verses are solid on here and he sounds pretty good over these beats. I'm glad he treated this like a proper mixtape by freestyling over some of the hottest songs of the year, it comes off as genuine.

Massaging Me caught me off guard, I was NOT expecting Future to come through off-rip like that but it is his song after all. The tape's intro was nice too and I thought God Did coming right after was ... read more

Lana Del Rey - Blue Banisters
74
Blue Banisters is the second album released by Lana Del Rey in 2021. It's not vastly different than Chemtrails Over The Country Club, but she once again experiments even more with her vocals.

Sometimes Lana confuses me: she has some songs on an album where she's really going all-out vocally, but then the rest of the album is kinda just the same ol' thing as she usually does. The title track is probably the best example of her really pushing herself vocally, and Arcadia is probably a close ... read more

Lana Del Rey - Chemtrails Over the Country Club
78
While Lana's sound doesn't take a drastic turn from album to album, she switches it up just enough to make each new release a bit more intriguing than the last for the most part. In this album, I really liked how she experimented with her vocals from time to time.

White Dress is a refreshing song from Lana. Her whispery yet emotional vocals and retrospective lyrics fuel the track's creative direction. The next couple songs sit well with me as well, the production on Tulsa Jesus Freak and how ... read more

Meek Mill - Championships
75
Championships is a big and bold effort by Meek Mill. Despite his questionable social media antics, he proves that he's still a good rapper after roughly a decade in the game.

The first thing that really caught my attention was the production. The glittery, sample-heavy pop-rap beats on here work very well with Meek's loud and confident voice. A lot of the lyrics on here were interesting to listen to as well, mostly consisting of Meek reminiscing over his past and comparing his life in the ... read more

Tia Corine - I Can't Wait
55
Tia Corine's versatility is what gives a lot of her songs the catchiness and grooviness that reels you in.

Her and UnoTheActivist come through with laid-back performances on the intro song before the bold production of Chaka Khan and FreakyT kick in. Tia floats over these instrumentals with ease, which is very impressive for a fairly new artist. Unfortunately, after the first third of the album, it becomes a monotonous sequence of atmospheric cloud-rap and rock-influenced songs. They're not ... read more

I'm open to listening to anything, though hip-hop is my primary genre. I review everything I give a rating to since I believe a numerical rating is too vague to properly explain my thoughts.
