Future – Monster Review

This is an album filled with songs that are not only formulaic and fairly repetitive, but are also already present on previous projects. While there are some new tracks some, maybe most, have been on mixtapes released before hand to promote the project.

The production is good and helps to bring the project up to a more enjoyable level. While each track is not unique, they are differentiated enough to distinguish them from one another. Some beats that don’t sound like they were cranked out of a machine, but are played on instruments may bolster the entertainment further.

The lyricism is improving but is not nearly enough to drive the tracks. Future is well known for his use of autotune and while it can make some songs more fulfilling to the listener, it detracts from his delivery and performance overall. If Future showed what he could do without autotune, he may gain more followers.

The features are alright but don’t bring out the best in Future. While they may put on good individual performances, they simply show that Future can work with others, but at the cost of showing his lyrical weaknesses. He may want to find some guests who would bring out more of a competitive side.

Overall, this is a mediocre album that simply reminds the listener of previous projects that Future has released. Future makes music that a certain audiance enjoys, but he needs to work harder to move in a fresh direction and gain a wider audiance.
