    Why wouldn’t be rap? He did on Vince, and James Blake?

    I’ve learned to be cautiously optimistic when he’s on a project instead of fully hyped by this point lol
    Fuck yeah, can’t wait to hear a new verse by the GOAT then

    Yeah, this is pretty good. On first listen, there’s less “wow” moments than there were on Oxnard, but it’s probably his most focused, cohesive album yet. Really, really smooth. Going to be the perfect spring/summer album.

    Yeah, this is bloody great. Compliments Oxnard too.

    and use a pretty font Supporter

    Wow, this is stellar. On the first pass, I loved every song. Winners Circle baaaangs

    This record made me realize that I like Oxnard a lot less than I forced myself into thinking I did lol

    This is really great as expected and definitely feels like its own thing apart from both Malibu and Oxnard. Love it.
  11. well this is great

    The sky goes from concrete to charcoal

    Wow this is one of the best things I've heard, Make It Better is going straight on my best songs of the year playlist, it's making me have feelings I didn't know I had

    Loved this on the way to work this morning. Did any of the Madlib sessions make it into this?

    not listed as producer on any song so i’m guessing not

    a whole lib/paak project would be

    An inconsequential shift as the continents drift.

    3 Stacks fucking goes in as usual

    EDIT: but Paak honestly matches him on "Winners Circle", that verse is unbelievable

    ...I guess I stand alone in liking Oxnard more than this. I really, really fucked with that album but both times I've heard this one I've kind of just zoned out for a good portion of it (though it obviously has some amazing highlights like Andre's verse, Make It Better, Reachin' 2 Much, Winner's Circle and the last song). I do like rap more than R&B in general though to be fair

    I enjoyed Oxnard a lot, but it just didn’t stick with me. This feels more cohesive.

    Production is way better here also
  20. the sun is shining bright here today, what a perfect day to listen to this album three times in a row

    Wasn’t it released around the same time? Guess I just assumed

    Gave me the wrong vibe anyways but if that’s not the direction he’s heading then great

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a video of his Coachella set? I caught about half on the livestream but it's gone now.

    The rivalry is back on

    I feel the opposite as what the critical reception on these past two albums was. I really enjoyed Oxnard, and this did absolutely nothing for me

    hot take: both are great

    This album is really good. I guess I should go back and give Oxnard another go...
