I didn't expect to enjoy this album as much as I did, as it is an album in which a lot of creative voices could easily clash with their different ideas of how the album should sound like, but that didn't happen. I loved almost every track on the album, but JID really did outshine the rest of the Dreamville squad and JID had me wondering after every verse when he would come again. Nevertheless, the rest of Dreamville still did really good, an example of excellent work is the verse of Johnny ... read more

I might be saying the obvious here, but I feel like this EP serves the purpose of being the prelude to his next album and this kind of serves as an I told you so. I told you so in the way that he thinks that this next album is going to dignify releasing this EP, because the album is going to be that good (and it might be). He spends a lot of the lyrics on being the savior of rap and bragging that this album is going to be here at the exact right time (at least that’s what I am reading ... read more

I really recommend this album to anyone who enjoys gorgeous vocals, original song-writing (in my opinion at least, Favorite Mistake is a beautiful and poetic example of this) and great melodies. The production is minimalistic, which is not bad, as I think it adds to the atmosphere Giveon is trying to create on this album. Honestly this guy is criminally underrated and I think he'll only grow to be bigger the coming years. I think Drake has uncovered a gem on "Dark Lane Demo Tapes", so ... read more

wow, this album is just.. incredible. If there's an album I'd have to call woke, it's this one. This is an extremely impressive work of art and they couldn't have released this at a better time. This is important. This is the purpose music should serve: to empower, to entertain and to inform. A great example of this is 'walking in the snow'.

Thematically and lyrically this album is a 10/10 and the production/delivery could grow on me to become a 10/10 as well, it would not surprise me, because ... read more

I have to agree with TreyLikesBands, this is bedroom pop at its finest. It’s original and it’s catchy, but most of all it’s good!
All that matters to Charli on this record is to just have fun and it really pays off, it’s unpredictable, it’s infectious. This is the record where she masters her sound. even though I think ‘Charli’ from last year is much better, this album is much more her, this is much more Charli than ‘Charli’ is.

This is the most consistent project Future has ever released. The hooks are SO catchy. Most of his albums are literal hit or miss; I often am really enjoying myself on a track, but then the one after that completely sucks. That is not the case on this project though, even the worst tracks are still enjoyable.

Best tracks: Trapped In The Sun, Solitaires, Ridin Strikers, Harlem Shake, Too Comfortable and All Bad

Hey, I have a song out! When you have the chance to, give it a listen. Haven't added it to AOTY yet, so here the YouTube music video link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5a0jTc9S10

I wrote this song and filmed the video while in quarantine. Took many inspirations from Chinese folk and alt-country. The concept of the video and song, I'll leave as a surprise (no spoilers of course), plus it's up to interpretation. Hope I can cheer some people up and get everyone together in these uncertain times, enjoy!

Yes, it's terrible in France, you can't go out anymore. And yes, there's been a shortage of toilet paper. I just hope this coronavirus thing is over by the time of Tyler The Creator's concert. There's only one date and I was really looking forward to that show. Otherwise, I promise you that tomorrow I'll listen to the Billy Joel's album, he sounds really cool and then, anyway, I have the time.

Thank you very much Kuru, that's very kind of you. Just know that I will never work for Pitchfork, some of their reviews are just jokes and they don't like Brockhampton. I hope everything is going well for you in the Netherlands with the coronavirus situation and all that... are you confined to your home?
About
*I suck at writing reviews*

I really love listening to music and honestly it’s mostly hiphop until now, but I mean the rest of this account shows me trying out new genres and rating the albums. I guess this account shows my attempts to delve into other sorts of music. If I had to say so myself, I’d say those attempts are succeeding pretty well.

My average rating is around 6.8 so I guess overall I'm pretty positive about music.
