Day 406: Playboi Carti by Playboi Carti

The hook to Flex injects some much needed melody in this somewhat tedious album. Very repetitive and a bit too low-key for my tastes. Magnolia is still a banger though.

Best Track: Flex objectively but Magnolia in any social situation be it a party, wedding, funeral, baby shower or anything else

Day 407: Atrocity Exhibition by Danny Brown

Uh... So I actually listened to this like a year ago but forgot to ever review it and then reviewed something else.

Then the Ain't It Funny video came out and I listened to it again and forgot to write a review again.

So anyways, here's that long-overdue review since I recently revisited it... What the fuck? This album is old now. I don't need to write anything you can read another fuckin review, nothing I could possibly say on an album this well-covered would be unique, and yeah that applies to a lot of albums I review but fuck you I'm lazy.

Best Track: Really Doe or Ain't It Funny or Dance In The Water

Day 408: Big Fish Theory by Vince Staples

So... Is 2017 the year of Odd Future members working past their cringy edgelord mannerisms and improving all around? If that's the case, I can't WAIT for the new Earl Sweatshirt release. As for this, well I heard it was good. I don't think ANYBODY ever cared about Vince before this one dropped, so let's see what the hype is about.

Lyrically, this is really thin. Like, really thin. I cannot remember a single worthwhile line and I was reading through Genius, the closest thing being Party People. Maybe I'm just not the target audience for his prose. The flow and delivery is also done in such a way to not evoke interest, really lazy and mumbled delivery that gets pretty repetitive. Whenever a guest hook appears it's a much-needed breath of fresh air.

But to spoil things early, this isn't gonna be a negative review. While the "rap" aspect of this album is subpar, the beats are phenomenal. I'm a raver so I like deep bass, danceability and garage-y sounds, and this has all 3! And it doesn't get too samey in this realm, thank GOD. Love Can Be... and Crabs In A Bucket feel like they belong on Warp Records with their groovy, almost acidic beats, whereas tracks like Yeah Right and Homage play out like bangers at a party where the bass boost is cranked.

I wish Staples' delivery was more engaging and his lyrical content doesn't justify his monotonic flow the way it does people like Earl, but the beats are probably what matters, because as the kids say, nobody gives a fuck about lyrics, right?

No, wrong, but whatever. Good album. A grower probably. Who's next from the OFWGKTA clan to escape suckitude? I place my bets on Taco.

Best Track: Love Can Be...

Day 409: Ego Death by The Internet (Album Choice: BonafideSupastar and)

For a long time, I've said I only care about Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean out of the whole Odd Future clique. This year, some artists from the group have made some great creative strides, but this album wasn't made this year. It was made in 2015, and it's fantastic. I'm an idiot. Slow, sexy, psychedelic jams and Syd has the voice of a 10/10 seductress. Very easy listen, passes by ridiculously fast, and keeps its thematic cool while still being varied enough.

I don't have anything to say in any of these reviews. Besides the listed best track, I have to highly recommend the opener, Special Affair, Curse and Something's Missing.

Best Track: Girl
