Just finished my first listen, and I have no clue how to feel about this. Wtf is this? I mean I clearly am not fully getting it to some degree, but like this is barely a hip hop album. This is about as far of a left turn as possible. After the passing of Groggs, I don’t know what I expected, but this album literally sounds like a large chunk was violently ripped out of it, and the damage/debris from the tear are part of the experience. The instrumentals are barely functional, and the verses feel incomplete and like they are just dripping off the album
This album somehow reminded me of Caretaker's EATEOT, Clipping, and A Crow Looked At Me all in one. I barely felt like this was music at times. I will listen a few more times before I score it
3rd Listen: It gets better with every listen like everyone else says. It is a draining album. It really tires me out but I am addicted to it.
5th listen: I feel like with every listen, the bigger picture just gets more and more in focus, while also being completely invisible. Almost as if there isn’t a greater point to all of this at all. It’s sad. It’s scary. It’s an empty feeling, that feels almost like home.
