This seems to be the unpopular opinion but honestly, this was pretty underwhelming to me. I find Gibbs's performances on this album oddly inconsistent, which is weird because that's not a description I'd apply to most of his material. Some of his flows feel kind of clunky and non-fluid which is not something I would typically expect from him at all. Madlib's production is solid, sure, but definitely not as good as it was on Pinata. And while I'm struggling to really put it into words, I guess I ... read more

Absolutely crazy sound collage / kinda DHC / possibly free-improv piece by Death Grips - seems to be a remastered version of a soundscape they played before the 2015 Jenny Death shows and it's sick that we have it in HQ now. Reminds me of if something like Steroids or BP was improvised in the depths of hell after the members of the band were forced and tortured there for three years. Pretty mental stuff.

The fact that he can come out with an album this great not even a year after the release of his previous one is just crazy to me. While I'd argue this is probably his weakest full-length release since Nostalgic 64, it's only so by a very slim margin. Great album cementing Curry as one of the best rappers of this decade.

Highlights: RICKY, WISH, BIRDZ, CAROLMART, SHAKE 88, P.A.T.
