Mac Miller - Circles (January 17, 2020) Album • Page 6

  1. The Jon Brion interview is great. I don't love every song on this record, but as an unfinished send-off and companion piece, you really couldn't ask for anything better.

    “I was more excited about him than I’ve been in quite some time”

    So amazing to see the respect that Jon (and so many others) have for Mac as a musician. Makes it all the more heartbreaking that this will likely be the last we hear from him. He seemed to be finally growing into his own creative space and Circles proves that evolution.

    I love how warm this album sounds. Has been drawing me back for the last few days like nothing else, and I wasn't really a fan before Swimming.

    I think I love swimming more than this a little bit but they are both fantastic albums

    After giving it some time to sit (although I don't think I will ever be able to fully judge this album objectively) my order is


    Faces
    Watching Movies
    Swimming
    Good AM
    Circles
    Macadelic
    Divine Feminine
    KIDS
    Blue Slide Park
    I Love Life, Thank You
    Best Day Ever

    Don't really listen to the first two tapes, and if I were including Delusional Thomas I'd put it above KIDS

    Also listen to his live album Live From Space if you haven't, it's so good

    After more time with this record, it is easily my favorite version of Mac.

    "Leave the bank, couple hundred thou" from Hand Me Downs is stuck in my head forever.

    Good News debuted at #17 on the Hot 100. That's his highest charting song as a lead artist.

    Great job on the review! You hit the nail on the head with your feelings about “That’s on Me” being “slightly awkward” lol. I’ve been searching for a way to describe it since my first listen.

    The comments section is a scary place on there though. YIKES.
     
  14. good lord you weren’t kidding. that looks like an AP thread from 2009

    As much as I love this album I hope the deluxe songs are more rappy, would love to hear some more of that

    He already has like 50+ leaked tracks too that are almost all studio quality

    there's very few leaks from this era though, that have been positively identified. a lot has leaked from the GO:OD AM era (makes sense as he claimed to be recording ten albums in that time) as well as a few from Faces and The Divine Feminine sessions, and maybe one or two from the very early days

    I think these tracks are the last of anything he recorded post-Swimming, most likely. I wouldn't expect them to be super hip hop but I might be wrong there ofc
     
  20. This is the first Mac Miller album I’ve gotten into and it’s so fucking good. Upset I wasn’t into his music previously, but I’m glad I can dive into the rest of his stuff. Complicated is stuck in my head 24/7

    I'd go back to Swimming first, then dive into the other shit. This album is pretty unlike all of his other stuff but Swimming is the closest
