FAVORITE TRACKS: The Bends, Azucar
LEAST FAVORITE TRACKS: Shattered Dreams, Red Water, Nowhere2go, Loosie, Peanut
STRENGTHS: Excellent lyricism & plenty of bars to pick at; Earl working through his pain; some of the dusty, sample-based production is on point.
WEAKNESSES: Regardless of the intent, the lofi aesthetic/muddled mixing can be a pain – same with some of the more experimental beats & off-kilter flows.
