Ever since their dismemberment, the solo acts of Odd Future have put out their best work to date. Frank Ocean with Blonde, Tyler with Flower Boy, and now Earl with Some Rap Songs.

This album is this generations response to Madvilliany. It is mind-warping, lo-fi, and at the same time feels like Earl coming to peace with who he is.

FAV SONGS:
Shattered Dreams, Cold Summers, Nowhere2go, December 24, Ontheway!, The Mint, The Bends, Azucar, Veins, Playing Possum, Peanut, Riot!

The 1975 have always made quality catchy pop songs, but their albums have always been a mix bag. On their 3rd studio album, they finally break that trend with their most consistent record to date.

FAV SONGS:
Give Yourself a Try, How To Draw / Petrichor, Love It If We Made It, Sincerity Is Scary, It's Not Worth Living (If It's Not With You), I Couldn't Be More in Love, I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)

LEAST FAV SONGS: I Like America & America Likes Me

Watching Tekashi's whole drama play out in real time is just as entertaining as the OJ Simpson trial. Unfortunately, the music is nothing but a side-product that starts to get mind-numbing after a couple of songs.

FAV TRACKS:
STOOPID, TIC TOC, KANGA

LEAST FAV TRACK(S):
MALA, FEEFA, WONDO

This is one of the most horrifying records I have ever heard. From what I interpret, It is about someone who is becoming depressed and going insane from his every day life and wants to desperately escape. But once he realizes how terrifying the outside is, he desperately tries to get back into his "house" (Guest House), but is too late for him to ever return, which is easily the most terrifying quality.

FAV TRACKS:
City Song, Long Road No Turns, Satan in the Wait, The Flammable Man, ... read more

Earl Sweatshirt gives us a glimpse in the dimly lit, smokey room that his mindset lives in on one of the most depressing hip-hop albums of the decade.

Above all else and taking it for what it is, this is a fun side project for the illusion of Vince taking over a radio show with Big Boy.

FAV TRACKS:
Feels Like Summer, Outside!, Don't Get Chipped, New earlsweatshirt (interlude), FUN!, No Bleedin

LEAST FAV TRACK(S):
Run the Bands

The final product comes across unfinished like a notebook of scattered feelings and raw thoughts. However, 17 is one of the most circumstantially interesting releases of the decade.

Above all, it's just boring. If this is the path Cardi B will continue to go down, it just proves she is a one trick pony.

The very start of Prince's legendary career ultimately feels like a label trying to push the disco trend with Prince before his innovative and career-defining sound.

So Blue
