TL;DR: this album is the older college educated brother to A$AP Rocky's TESTING and JOBA's mean

SAT. II is my favorite album of theirs. It felt like they had really mastered the conventional rap song, bringing nuance, hilarity, and innovation to the craft in a way that made them stand out amongst their peers.

But Iridescence proves they've always been in a lane of their own, for better or worse. I say that because Iridescence can be a somewhat jarring listening experience. Usually you know ... read more

The last trilogy entry is both a victory lap and a departure.
Their first feature with Ryan Beatty.
The cohesion and creativity between members is at its peak. Matt is singing more, they tag team on LIQUID, and we hear Bearface more than once on an album! Wow!

but I don't really listen to STAINS or ALASKA. And the songs standout less outside of the production. Wheras you could immediately tell that JUNKY is conscious or FIGHT is about racism, it seems like all the songs here are thematically ... read more

The best production.
The best topics.
The best lyrics (RIP Ameer feels hardest here)
JOBA and Matt Champion increase their presence DRAMATICALLY.
And they still hadn't REALLY blown up yet. It's the best cause it's the standalone reminder that you can be killing the game at any age, cemented their status, surmounted the sophomore slump, and inspired and impressed even those who didn't wanna pay attention.

I wonder where they'll be in a year hehehehe

BEST TRACKS: SWAMP, JUNKY, ... read more

Fresh out the woodwork, BROCKHAMPTON is killing the game!

But new and inventive can only get you so far. After listening to all their albums in the SATURATION TRILOGY, you can't tell me this is the album you return to the most. Returning to listen, it feels wonky and underproduced, and occasionally without focus. The sheer star power of HEAT and STAR feel way heavier. It's thankful that they continue to grow and develop their craft though, cause it still was one of the best albums of the year ... read more

i really should be asleep instead of listening and reviewing this but MAYBE IM AN INSOMNIBLACK!!

Mothertrucker, this album is everything and more. It expands exponentially on the saga that is Noname Gypsy with far more complex, mature beats, layered song structures and Noname's most precise and poignant verses to date.

She effortlessly dances, dictates and divines over this superb effort. It plays like a jazzy, and I dare say, cinematic jam sesh with homages to Badu and D'Angelo alike. Some ... read more

Wow. I don't even know what to say. Thank you very much for all of that...
That made me feel a bit better :) I'm sure I'll start up again at some point once my nerves settle down.
There's still a lot of stuff I want to atleast give a rating to. Thanks for being so sincere and sweet! <3

I just don't know how to keep my mouth closed so I've ended up with a lot of people on here not associating with me.
I've done a good job of making sure the general consensus of me on AOTY is "bitter toxic cunt"
I've tried apologizing but it leads nowhere. It just sucks when I'm around.

Hard to say.
I just feel really sad and isolated and lonely when I come on here. It's all my own fault though.
I'm a very unhealthy person lol..
