Been wanting to rate this album for a while now, but yeah it's a strong 10/10 for me.

Infectious & flamboyant production, a unique variety of sounds that clash so beautifully together, and a concept that's decorated with neon and glitter. Each track is memorable and the longevity doesn't seem to be diminishing any time soon. I would go on and on about why I love this album so much. Maybe I'll even edit this review when I feel like going more in depth on this masterpiece. But as of ... read more

This is a labyrinth of an album. The unpredictable twists, turns, loops, and surprises take you on a journey that its eerie, frightening, yet beautiful in retrospect. However, after its runtime, you find yourself in the same place as before.

Very minimalistic yet also lively and expressive. This is my first 070 Shake album, and so far I'm very impressed.

It's nonchalant, and gave me similar vibes to that of KAYTRANADA's Bubba. With that ... read more

The simplicity of the guitars and fuzzy drums glide along the slow tempo across each track, which adds mystery and mischief to the album’s personality. The atmosphere is eerie and haunting with tracks like Saving Grace and ... read more

BITCH HELLOOOO

Each track had this unique charisma to it. Despite the various beat switches throughout the album, Brian effortlessly manages to adapt to the different styles of the songs. His lyricism was witty yet still had moments of discussing deep concepts involving his relationships with people around him and a lot of self reflection. The weaker tracks in my opinion were Confetti and Where does the time go. I just wish that the album ended in a grander way instead of Joji's verse sizzling ... read more
