Okay, yeah, I heard about it from Fantano, got curious, decided to bite the bullet and checked this mess out. A 1/10 seems too harsh for this thing. Not by a whole lot, though.

There was potential in the production. It's quite nice, actually, subtracting the weird janky MIDI piano and generic trap segments. It could've been a relaxing listen, a decent one, even. But Bladee's vocals here are absolutely atrocious. What the fuck is this. Bladee himself somehow manages to suck the soul straight ... read more

No Now is the internet. When I say that, I don’t mean it’s some sort of statement on it or anything like that. It is the internet, a microcosm of all it’s rapid, random, violent, hypersexualised bastard beauty. It’s loud, glitchy, noisy, maximalist, and absolutely beautiful through and through.
This album is an absolute beast- an hour-long tour de force. It’s chaotic, maniacal and absolutely unpredictable. Everything is glitchy at one point or another, several ... read more

Maybe it's hometown bias, but this album kicked my ass. Actually, not only did it kick my ass, but it did so with a straight face and while telling me how much the world fucking sucks. This album is filled with dread and gray skies all around and I was captivated every moment along the way. This isn't your generic leftie-rock, it's very well-thought out, deep and less directed at the big man in the White House (as it seems so much modern music is) than the injustice at large that these last few ... read more

Gotta admit, this one is still slowly clicking more and more for me. I like it, but it's just barely on the border of truly loving it. I feel like there's something missing here seperating "good" from "great." The first leg of this album is really good, but I feel like the rest could use some more fleshing and development. 22, A Million definitely turned out less... pretentiously indie than I expected, so that's good. It’s also a lot cleaner and more refreshing than ... read more

This album is really good when I want to chill. While the runtime and spoken word style make it incredibly difficult too get though with full concentration, it's actually pretty relaxing and beautiful as background music. Common as Light feels like Mark talking directly to me and sharing his stories for 2 hours (although I feel like 2 hours is a bit much). Good to load up when you're doing something that doesn't require too much focus, and Mark's storytelling does a lot to keep it all from ... read more
