This is a refreshing blast of fresh sound to hit the ears. You can hear in the music that it was recorded using real instruments instead of machines and it is a nice change from what is coming out in the culture at the moment. Although this could mean that it does not sound like it will have the longevity that some music has, but it is very in the moment and an enjoyable listen.
The lyricism is clever and fitting with the production. The combination of artists different styles and tones make it a very interesting listen as they frequently jump between artists on each track. There is some interesting wordplay and other lyrical features that also help to make this stand out even more as an album.
As I said before, the production is amazing. On some tracks, it would be good to hear some more of the production stand out against the vocals but it is still a great feature of the album.
Overall this is a great album that should be heard by a lot of people even if it is only once, just to experience a hip hop album that is made with live instruments rather than constructed on a computer.
