 - Staring Aimlessly Into the Sea's Heart
70
Every moment while sometimes unneeded, feels purposeful. Notes dictating the slow descent, body still; but head spinning. The wind touching your ears beginning to dissolve into an enigmatic chime, the sound persuading your body to slowly descend onto the sand beneath you. The water you thought was at your heels now down to your knees as the waves unwillingly drag you away into the indescribable body of water that lay before you.

The further your unconscious body slips into the water, the more ... read more

 -  I NEVER LIKED YOU
30
This album pretty much encompasses my thoughts on future and confirmed everything I was expecting to get into with this album. Boring and uninspired production? AI generated bland ass future bars? Shithouse features? And some of the worst vocal performances this year? YOU GET IT ALL!

Just like the rest of future's career, I NEVER LIKED YOU is another big disappointment! The saddest thing is too, the album actually starts pretty great and holds a fine pace, the first 3 tracks actually being ... read more

 - RAMONA PARK BROKE MY HEART
80
While "RAMONA PARK BROKE MY HEART" is obviously not as technically proficient or impressive as the likes of "BIG FISH THEORY", what isn’t there in mind blowing production and genius level pen is Vince and his team's ability to create an atmosphere I haven't felt from any other release this year so far.

Silky smooth beats paired with Vince's slick carefree deliveries give the album a strong pace and a general calming demeaner that makes it accessible while still being ... read more

 - deception falls

EXOCIETY's 2021 run was really disappointing and was definitely worrying of the direction them, as a label, were taking.

Kill Bill dropped "Snowglobe Theory" a 12-track hip-hop LP that ended up sounding like the most mundane answer to the question of "What happens when we mix his previous two projects, "Ramona" and "Resin"?".

Scuare finally released another album after nearly a decade, and it too, was just ok. It had a few good tracks but once again it ... read more

 - MAN PLAYS THE HORN
80
Every day the underground gets ever closer to "Post Hip-Hop"; this project being a key example. And while definitely not to the level that Slauson Malone achieved with "A Quiet Farwell", "MAN PLAYS THE HORN" certainly makes a large mind fuck statement with its masterful sample flips and avant-garde writing style hap-hazardly sprinkled throughout the record.

But with such a long run time, moments of confusion came up often, the biggest example here being the ... read more

 - Few Good Things
80
While not exactly batting up to the likes of "CARE FOR ME", Saba delivers what seems to be a brighter and more pop influenced side to him while still managing to delve into the lyrical brilliance his previous albums have served up, making "Few Good Things" Saba's most accessible and interesting pieces of work to date.

Saba cycles through traditional conscious hip-hop, trap bangers and pop rap within "Few Good Things", with each new sub-genre giving us an insert ... read more
