This album is one of the most thought provoking and personal records I’ve heard in a while. Kendrick speaks on several personal issues including his struggle with fame, accountability, religion, needing therapy, fatherhood, cancel culture and gender identity generational/childhood trauma. He goes through every topic with the expected depth and story telling we’ve come to expect. This album needs repeated listens to grasp everything. The production is on point. The writing is strong ... read more

Okay. Let me be clear. I’m a huge Ghost fan. And I understand this is their biggest departure from their sound. It’s grandiose while being their campiest outing yet. But god damn is it incredible.

That should’ve been on a yachty project. Felt so out of place on this otherwise solid outing.
