This album is beautifully incoherent. The concept and vastness of the Internet is expressed very compellingly through the ever-changing sound of Because the Internet. It has both the lighter and more popular sides of the internet with 3005 and contrasts these sounds with its darker corners with No Exit and Death by Numbers to create a scattered yet immersive experience (this concept is backed up by the screenplay). Sure, Donald’s rapping isn’t the best and he does drop a lot of ... read more

This is a great album! Kenny Beats’ Madlib styles production shines through constant samples, chops and screws making this album as fast-paced and detailed. Denzel Curry also returns with his signature high-energy flows which just adds to this albums overall quality. The only issue is that it seems to lose focus towards the end and each track seems like a slight step down from the last. Still a great album and so far my favourite of the year!

This is a solid album! Madlib’s production is consistently very good and borrows a lot from Madvillainy with each track being scattered with odd samples and layered instrumentals.

The only real issue is that some of the bars are terrible and it doesn’t seem like ... read more

Blood Orange’s angelic vocals and pure auditory bliss help this album to create a atmospheric and calming experience but hollow production and at times boring melodies prevent the album from excelling. This album seems very ambitious combining elements of soul and jazz to create an almost hour long expression of emotion and his views on our harsh world. Many ideas fall short however which prevents this album from being great and a timeless classic.
