Dave - Psychodrama
Mar 21, 2019

Not saying the album is completly devoid of highlights, but most of this feels so characterless...which is especially bad if we consider that this is a concept album about his own struggles with mental health issues...

He isn't a bad rapper and the aesthetic as well as ambition is there, but the execution resulted in a great amount of inconsistency with cliché and corny bars...his delivery is also a bit weak to me, but he compensates it with his accent tbh...

The production makes sense; it reflects the mood of what Dave is conveying, but some of it feels samey and somewhat melodramatic (I just say it: everything about this album screams "cliché" and "cheesy" at some point)...there are instrumentals which I do really like tho; the eerie, hypnotic "Drama" and the lowkey, but still emotionally powerful and progressive "Lesley" are really compelling...then you have those commercially appealing tracks (e.g. Voices, Location) which feel like charting rap songs in Europe...kinda awkward attempt ig; at least they don't really destroy the cohesion...

As I said earlier: Conclusion is that Psychodrama has some highlights like Lesley, Drama and Disaster, but it mostly lacks character...but I'm also kinda glad that an album like this exist since I think that it's a great listen for casual music fans who still put effort in listening to what the artist is saying...would recommend this to a friend if he can relate to this...
