Nice chill, jazzy ,and almost Lo-fi hip-hop sounding instrumentals, nice lyrics, nice chill vibe and nice singing from features. Reminds me a lot of Isaiah Rashad's "Cilvia Demo".

I remember when this was unreleased and Donald had been livestreaming it on his website. Upon that listen, I had really enjoyed it but I didn't realise how long some of the songs were.

All the songs are nice really except for ... read more

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? This whole album apparently. It’s nothing above meh.

Lyrics were ok, for cheesy Indie-Pop anyway. I’ll commend Dominic Fike for having some different sounding instrumentals throughout the album as if he stuck to one style, it would have been way more boring. The instrumentals are still quite basic though, bland Hollister/Indie retail shop music if you will. His vocals weren’t enough for me to save this album either. The vocal effects put on his ... read more

This was certainly good but not worth such a long wait.
I liked all the instrumentals apart from the one for “Ezekiel’s Wheel” and “Flux Capacitor” but that’s only 2 out of 10. The stock sound effects that appeared in some songs were a weird choice. Instrumentals had a more underground abstract sound which I liked. There was good lyricism and nice storytelling on here for sure. They definitely didn’t hold back on their vocabulary. I do agree that if ... read more

welcome to the site, nice reviews!
About
💖New to this review stuff :)

💖Practicing analysing music 🎶

💖I promise I'm not a hater and do understand the concept of fun 😎

💖Genres I'm most focused on in order: Hip-Hop, R&B/Soul, Pop, Indie/Alternative, Electronic. Not too fond of trap, drill, and basic radio pop, but can be a guilty pleasure depending on the artist. Most other genres are basically irrelevant to me. I'll try anything, just less likely to review it.

💖Scores may be changed around the more I re-listen to albums
