This Juice WRLD posthumous album is surprisingly decent compared to a lot of other posthumous releases to come out in recent years. When it comes to posthumous releases, labels often end up scraping the bottom of the barrel just to get as much money possible from whatever artist has sadly passed away. In the case of XXXTENTACION especially, his posthumous releases ended up being obvious cash grabs that took some of the most unfinished songs of his and attempted to make songs out of them which end up sounding awkward and extremely empty. They even released "Jah on Drums" and a whole bunch of voice memos to capitalize off his death. That being said, there are some examples of posthumous albums that show actual respect to the deceased artists such as Mac Miller's "Circles" which is actually one of my favourite albums of the year. With this release I feel they put a lot more respect into it than say X's releases. Most of the songs they chose on here actually sound finished and while they aren't always the most outstanding songs, they still sound like a song Juice would actually release. There are also a few pretty good songs on here as well such as "Righteous" which might be the best Juice WRLD song to date. All those pros aside, the album still suffers from it's long length and a few below average songs such as any of the ones with Marshmello involved which just don't sound good at all, especially "Come & Go" which was ruined completely by Marshmello's production. For the most part though this release is actually pretty decent in my opinion and while it's nothing amazing I can appreciate his label for putting some actual care into this. Overall a decent project. R.I.P. Juice WRLD.
