I don't get it. It sounds like another band made this album, not the duo behind the plunderphonics magnum opus Since I Left You. This is a hard departure from their signature style toward a more accessible and feature-driven project. The collaborative nature is cool, but I don't think the features added anything exciting to the project; I would go as far to say they are boring (with a couple exceptions), and that's saying something since I love all of these artists.

Oh...

This sounds like a watered down version of Invasion of Privacy (and even that album wasn't spectacular). The mixing on this is atrocious. I'm not sure if they were intentionally going for an early 2000s production sound, but IMO it comes across very dated and stale. It's unfortunate because Megan's delivery on some of these tracks is not terrible. I really love that she's expressing her sexuality, but in a world where we have the likes of Cupcakke, this album is incredibly forgettable.

If you're looking for an RTJ or Denzel Curry level of grandiosity, you'll be greatly disappointed. Mike here is more introspective, vulnerable, and reflective than ever. It's actually nice hearing men rapping in this emotional state and perspective that we don't often hear. His spoken-word rapping sounds like pages torn out of a journal and put to music. And it sounds like he made this album for himself and his personal journey. He's just trying to heal, y'all.
