100TH RATING: "BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX"

Injury Reserve's seemingly last LP as a group is able to convey their harsh, pitiless experience of loss and grief by pushing this genre of choice to its full potential. While I've stated many times that I'm not the biggest fan of this sub-genre, I can't deny just how well it works for the story these people are trying to tell. Every instrumental is loud and confused much like other industrial LP's, and I normally wouldn't be a huge fan of ... read more

This surprise drop from Drake continues his ever-going streak of producing mediocre album after mediocre album. From the moment this album was announced (and released later that day), I was concerned. CLB, his previous album and subsequent failure, was not too long ago, would this be a Donda 2 situation where he'd pump out an unfinished mess purely to maintain relevance? While the answer is thankfully no, what we get instead doesn't please either.

REDUX REVIEW: "FEW GOOD THINGS"
Orignal Score: 75
Redux Score: 100

After five or so months of having this LP in my rotation, I thought I'd revise my orignal review and talk on how this album has simply captured my heart over time and is severely underrated.

Right out of the gate, the small and lucious leitmotif of nature bustling and birds chirping, alongside the emotive and amazing vocals provided by Cheflee on the opener, 'Free Samples' is pure excellence.

From there, each track ... read more

Outside of the obviously immoral release of the project and the estate fiasco, X's updated unreleased cuts are inoffensive at best.

While a lot of it is still X's traditional, edgy, rough and moody aesthetic, it rarely does anything offensive. Mainly the opener, 'vice city', his first song, which was initially released on Soundcloud way back, stands out as an extremely weak track due to his poorly mixed vocals. It's made quite clear early on that the label did not do much to modernise or ... read more

My thoughts on the added tracks are marginally the same as the original record. SZA's voice is great, but she really needs to pick out some more substantial instrumentals as she just sings over drums for 20/21 tracks, outside of the closer, 'Jodie', which a prime standout for me personally.

The fact this has a lower rating than his dull, aged-like-milk ass mid-2000's records such as Stillmatic, God's Son, Street Disciple, etc. is wack asf this album wipes them on production alone.

Thanks for following! I like your reviews and have to agree about Roadrunner being the best Brockhampton album. The rest just don't do it for me.
