Pure Infinity is a little bit of a head-scratcher but far from terrible. SwaVay shows a lot of potential as a rapper with very impressive and enjoyable flows that keep his songs listenable and lyricism that isn't too great, but is hard to greatly bash. He spends a lot of time exploring romance, but the imagery he creates is a little more complicated yet purer than the picture perfect that's more out there, which is shown on On Your Mind, for example. He does go a little overly dramatic on songs ... read more

Injury Reserve's self titled debut sounds like throwing a party with your friends. This is the group having fun, trying new things and, especially, delivering excellent new music to thank the fans with cleverly arranged collaborations. All features in this album pretty much outshine them, but it's impossible to listen to any of the those songs and not think it's an Injury Reserve track.
They show a lot of sides to their music, but what really blows me away is their ability to go so hard with so ... read more

As much as I like this album and admire what Natalie did here, for me it's difficult to listen to it all the way through.

However, a little bit of what at least I consider monotony doesn't imply a decrease in quality at all. After listening to Titanic Rising, I appreciate Natalie more as ... read more

I'm a fan of ScHoolboy's more eccentric performances and I was excited for CrasH Talk, but tHis sounds like an identity crisis. Q sounds like He tries to jack all of His features' styles. THat goes for 6LACK, for Kid Cudi and for YG (except YG Has good production). And I don't know wHat tHe fuck CHopstix is. 21 Savage, Lil Baby and Ty Dolla $ign along witH tHe aforementioned artists were all as terrible as Q and tHat's frustrating. ScHoolboy can't Hold a song for His own either, because His ... read more

Anderson .Paak's Ventura shines for its epic highs, but as a whole, it hits like a breeze. This album is, as intended, smoother, with a more acoustic-oriented sound than Oxnard. But some moments sound uneventful and insignificant rather than smooth. Andy's vocals, lyricism and delivery remain superb, but it's the constant search for that heavenly soulful hook that bugs me, because hooks, refrains and melodies can be overly highlighted and very subpar sometimes.
Jumping to my favorite aspects, ... read more
