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.

I... Agree. But what about half-spoken-word/half-singing. You know, people like Dylan or Reed. Do you think it's still bad?

@MarkAnMan No, my only problem is when there is a announcer giving a monologue.

It must be because they are afraid to give it a lower score, not that they think it's a 70. Thank you for revealing the truth to us plebs.

"I don't care what he talks about, it doesn't give me any emotion"
He talks about his childhood best friend who committed suicide in 2018. It's an ode to all the moments they've spent together and a self-reflection on how to keep moving forward. I think it's fair to not find the music or spoken word enjoyable, but to criticize his lyrics and call them "expressionless" is a bit naive and insensitive.

@doctorchair I didn't say that the lyrics are not pretty or expressionless, they are. But the way it shows, (speaking and not singing) completely takes away any feeling I might have. He could be talking about any subject there, Spoken words just makes everything boring, dull. What does it matter if the lyrics are beautiful, if when I listen I want to blow my head up against the wall?

Goodness gracious. You are being ironic or stupid, and it’s hard to tell which. You don’t have to like it. People are all different. At different points in their life. With a different context from which they are listening.

I accept your opinion. I've also accepted that it's wrong.

Nice to know people can express their opinion regardless of what others think. I believe it is unnecessary to condemn others but I'm glad that your review is unfiltered, honest and brutally your opinion.

Nice opinion, i agree with parts of what you've said but you're very harsh in a lot of respects, don't visit Ireland, little tip for you there

@JackO489 ok, but I didn't understand what you mean about the Ireland tip.

I mean no offense in this. But this is one of the worst takes I've ever read.

Because you'll hate the accent i meant haha

i keep thinking about this review and i dont know why its been bugging me so much, particularly about the part that implies that users giving this a good score are being dishonest in some way. i dont like the implication that somebody has to be lying if they say they enjoy this album or spoken word sections in music.

Man I've always hated reviews that try to speak for other people. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean others don't.
