This album is great for people who have been following Verb T’s career but it does not do a great deal to entice new listeners. The content is personnal to Verb a lot of the time so unless you know a bit about him already, you could be at a slight loss.
The production is handled by Illinformed and he skillfully keeps up his signiture sound while giving Verb T plenty of oppertunity to showcase his skills. There is a slight haunting atmosphere in the tracks as well as a sort of dark energy. For this project it works well, but More variety could lead to a more interesting listen through.
The lyricism is good and makes some really great moments. However some of Verb T’s delivery can become stale, despite his passion backing it. If he varied his tone a bit more, his rhymes may sink harder into the listener. On the other hand, he does use some intricate wordplay as well as some other devices that show he is still effective at his craft.
The features work well with Verb T and efficiently with Illinformed beats. Each puts in good effort and compliments Verb T’s style well. A few guests outside of his comfort zone could make some more interesting tracks, however the ones here do a fantastic job.
Overall, this is an enjoyable album that shows Verb T can stand alone as with his group members, The Four Owls. This is a good step for both him and for Illinformed, to get thier names out there to the people.
