This album shows that G-Eazy can rap and do it well, but does not necesserily know the formula to a wining song. Some song chemistry is needed to tie the album together a bit more.
The production is different from the normal with a touch of abnormal patterns and sounds to give the music a dark edge. The songs follow the theme of when things are dakr, but it does need to still be tied together. Some more cohesion between the songs would help this project a lot.
The lyricism is great with G-Eazy easily striding through his rhymes with good and individual delivery. His lyrics are full of different techniques and devices to improve his imagery. Maybe some more changes to flow would help bring this project together.
The features are one of the most cohesive elements of this project as they help show the chemistry G-Eazy can have with other artists. Each has a good verse that helps to push the songs ot new hieghts. Some more variation in the type of guest with maybe more singing would help to show his diversity a bit more.
Overall, this is a great step for G-Eazy as it helps to hone his skills. Maybe on a brighter project, he could show that he can have more variation when it comes to content.
