This release is a great showing of skills for JL and helps put his name into the public eye. Each track shows a lot of talent from the artist and how he is developing in his music.
The production is energetic and dark in a lot of places. There are a lot of songs with deep atmospheres to delve into and helps to connect with the listener. Maybe some more lighter beats could help give a more balanced experience but this is still a great backdrop for the stylings of JL.
The lyricism is amazing with a lot of clever wordplay and fast paced rhymes to keep things interesting and exciting. JL does a great job of displaying a variety of abilities through out the songs, but his hooks can be a little repetitive. However, that is the only real issue with his performance on here.
The features do great of expanding upon JL’s performance to increase the entertainment value of each song. All the guests did a great job of showing how well they can rap and/or sing, and help build this project up to an even higher level. The guest selection on here fill the criteria but maybe something further from his comfort zone could add another dimension.
Overall, this is a very deep project that connects with the listener while giving them an energy boost to their day. JL is a fantastic member of Strange Music and proves it with this album.
