An underrated Neil & Crazy Horse record, and a goofy, rollicking good time!

Where was Burna Boy (or any African pop artists) on the Black Panther LP? Every one of his singles had been excellent and this LP is the culmination of those excellent feel-good afropop vibes.

Orchestra-driven album from Newman doesn't have as whimsical and bitingly satirical feel as later LPs but still has superb songwriting and enough of the aforementioned attitude to make it a classic for me.

The debut LP presented some interesting sounds, this is a huge step down, reverting to mundane elevator music with a cinematic martial arts film feel.

Hi-hats and 808 loops of booming bass sounds corny and pandering mixed with the excellent African marimba, vibraphone and timpani, which could've been left as-is. Even Kendrick's soundtrack would've been better in the film. Simply put Ludwig has never made good beats for Gambino, and he pales in comparison to previous Marvel scores by the likes of Mark Mothersbaugh and Michael Giacchino.
