A very short but impactful album. It doesn't wow you at first, but with every listen you leave with a bigger smile on your face. It is really a treat of a hip hop album, and one of the best hip hop albums coming from a female artist I've listened to in several years.
There couldn't have been a more perfect hip hop album to come out at the end of 2016 than this. I knew that there was something missing in the Tribe's legacy. This album is about as perfect you can make an old school hip hop album with a modern flair. The production is sharp and the lyricism is on point. This feels like a passing of the torch to the new generation. Although this is the Tribe's last album, their legacy will live on for a long time.
Jaar isn't afraid to step into new territories. That is why he is one of my favorite electronic artists now. This album delivers poetic messages that reveal themselves after repeated listens. This is a sneaky good album. Once you make the meaning of it, it becomes an engaging listen.
An interesting listen and album that is truly unique and experimental. I'm not sure how to box this album, but Jenny made a compelling record about blood, capitalism, and selfhood. It is a step forward from the already good Apocalypse, Girl.
Brown's new album is a true descent into madness. Some of the production on this record is truly bonkers and makes me wonder how on Earth that beat was even made. Brown offers introspection into his drug use and wild life, which may be a danger to his longevity. I think this album has cemented Danny as one of the most gifted rap artists of this decade.
