I can't like "spoken word" albums, it sucks and EVERYBODY knows it.
"But what about the things he says? The lyrics are beautiful."
If I want to hear a man talking, I listen to a podcast or see a speech from the president. And if I want to see a guy talking on top of a song, I go to an appliance store, or to the market, where there is always someone talking about promotions over a song that is playing.
Just because the guy doesn't have a beautiful voice to sing and so he chooses to keep talking, people already judge him as genius, just because he is not a conventional way of making music. It is boring, dull, expressionless, it´s a shit.
I don't care what he talks about, it doesn't give me any emotion, it looks like he's reading a book man.
There are a lot of people giving 70 for this album, just because they didn't like it and are afraid to give it a low grade. They don't even give a high grade, because they really didn't like it very much, nor a low grade, because they are afraid of being seen as ignorant.
You don't have to lie about your feelings to be accepted.
I speak for you: it is boring, its sucks, it is a shit, it is pretentious, its dull, it doesn’t convey any emotion, and just because it’s an uncomfortable sound, it doesn’t mean it’s great, interesting, intimate or something, it just means it’s really boring.
can i be wrong? certainly! but until I change my mind, this is a shit for me.
