First 80+ of the year! On this debut, Aaron Frazer displays a unique, sweet charm interwoven into his silky falsetto that I find really endearing. The production on this album is exquisite as well, but the real difference maker is Frazer's unique voice and ear for melody. Very excited to see where his career goes.
I was really curious about this record, especially since the feature list was a hodge-podge of artists I really like and artists I almost never listen to. Ultimately, I didn’t like this as much as I was hoping to; Gibb’s vocal style simply doesn’t fit these organic country arrangements at all in my opinion, even if the songwriting is pretty good.
A perfectly fine tribute to JTE, and one you can tell Steve took a lot of care in making. I probably won't revisit much of this over the originals, but it was still perfectly enjoyable, and "Last Words" is a true gutpunch of a song.
Yung Pinch is such a black hole on the mic, constantly sucking up anything that could even be considered intriguing, and the production on this tape is the most basic acoustic-laden trap you could come up with, leading to a listening experience that is just a whole lot of bleh.
