This album is fantastic and shows great growth from Mac Miller. He crafts this album with stories of personal journey and uses his life experiance to make relatable tales.
The production is great as it does not override the rhymes while being creative and enjoyable. The beats are all different from each other while keeping the signiture sound of Mac Miller. He has chosen backings that accentuate his talents and make really great tracks.
The lyricism is good and helps with the descriptive portion of storytelling. Mac Miller uses a range of techniques to heep his raps fresh and interesting to the listener while being able to get his point across with a good amount of impact. Maybe some more variation in his delivery could enhance some moments, but he certainly does not slack on this album.
The features bring a good comparison to the project as they all bring good verses that push Miller on. The performances they pull off all help show that they are more than competant and that they can compete with Mac Miller as a great MC. Some more guests from different genres could make some amazing moments as Miller has a lot of crossover skills, but he has chosen guests well for this project.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable and entertaining album that has plenty of replay value and is more than worth the wait. Mac Miller should be proud of fighting his struggles as well as making a great album.
