Truthfully speaking, this for me is the most exciting album release in months. I’m a huge fan of their previous works, and when they get their ever-experimental formula right on a track, it tends to be a fantastic listen that’ll hang around your playlists for a long time.
Here’s to hoping there’s more of that on this project, their third album. To help boost it along, this one comes with a bigger dose of help from featured artists, with (arguably) Odd Future top four rappers in Hodgy Beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and Mike G appearing alongside longtime OF affiliates Vince Staples and Casey Veggies, plus Mac Miller, Kilo Kish and Jesse Boykins III. The latter two features boast real potential, as the sonic compatibility of those acts with the JAOT sound is seemingly near-perfect, and hence those could end up as real standout tracks here. Of course, with production helmed by the talented Jet Age duo of Matt and Hal, there’s going to be no shortage of experimentalism and I’m sure there’ll be plenty of variety to enjoy; free grab below.
