This is a nice kickback and listen album. Its full of energetic and yet relatively relaxing music that make it easy to have as background music but that does mean that it isn’t the most capturing of music. while you may be sucked in to one or two tracks, most of it is still good but not enticing.
The production is smooth and very easy going. The beats sound like palm trees turned into music and it works very well when combined with Marcelo’s flow. They have a degree of diversity to have a chance for Marcelo to tell the sadder parts of his story, but it stays mostly in the bouncy section of Hip Hop production.
The lyricism is there, but is a bit feeble when compared to other rappers. It is more advanced than most beat heavy club tracks but less than songs with softer beats and more complex lyricism. If you can put up with waiting for the lyricism to come through, then there are some moments of glory, but it is mostly straight forward and simplistic.
The features are good but don’t add a lot to the mixtape. They shake up the monotony of Mr Marcelo but don’t add extra depth or more complex lyricism to any of the tracks. This doesn’t mean they aren’t good, but it does show that Marcelo may need to look for different features on future projects.
Overall, this is a good mixtape if your only sort of listening to it. While listening intently to it can be enjoyable, it is at its best as background music which is unfortunate for Mr Marcelo as it may not reflect his true ability.
