This release shows that Termanology has grown as a man as well as a lyricist. His story telling ability on here creates a good listen through for a cautionary tale.
The production is very interesting, with a lot of unusual sounds creating a haunting and somewhat offbeat backing to Termanology’s tracks. They give off an almost off putting vibe that helps generate a good atmosphere for the content. Something a little lighter might liven things up, but that would ruin the point of an album called Bad Decisions.
The lyricism is strong throughout the whole album. Termanology flexes his verbal muscles to fill his songs with details and wordplay, helping his story feel more real to the listener. He has a solid delivery as well, but it might be exciting to see him play around with it a little more than he has in the past.
The features all do great work at building on Termanology’s messages. All the guests show what they are capable of, while simultaneously reinforcing what he is saying. With no weak picks, the only way to improve the features would be some more singers, but that might not have given the correct feel for this album as a whole.
Overall, this album is a must for Termanology fans, but it may not attract many new fans due to the content and how far it seems from most pop music. Termanology should still be pleased with this work as most hip hop heads should be able to appreciate his work on here.
