Have you listened to Beaks solo album?

Yes. Though I'd suggest starting with Never Better.

Not quite as good as Never Better for me but still, really, really good. Top twenty albums of this year so far, for sure.

The thing about P.O.S, and Doomtree as a whole, is how amazing they are live. I'm slightly disappointed with Get Down solely because for the past year and a half or so whenever I've seen it played, it's SUCH an awesome/fun song. It still is, of course, but I just don't like the recorded beat as much. I cannot wait to hear How We Land live. I bet Justin will be at the CD release show or something. Anyway, love the album, awesome review, amazing artist. Can't wait for this year's blowout.

"Lock-Picks" is a Never Better B-Side in all the right ways. After a couple listens I love the album. Not sure where it ranks yet among others.

Yeah

Album is definitely a grower. Didn't hook me upon first listen as Never Better did. Drew, what did you think of the bonus tracks?

Really loving this

Totally agree, I've been waiting anxiously to hear the studio version and it just doesn't hit as hard or fast as it does in live performances. Which is not meant as disrespect, because the track is still mean, but I was wondering whether someone would comment on that.

Oh, and anyone have any thoughts on the picture disc? I've been trying to get answers on it anywhere possible with no luck; I've been wanting to order it on vinyl, but have always steered clear of picture discs and haven't heard anything regarding a standard pressing

Starting to like this one more than never better and I didn't think that was possible.

Both records are high for me though, I guess I must be deaf cuz I love the entire album and the first time I heard it a few months ago I immediately hit repeat. Maybe I just like it more cuz it's a bit more accesible and I think the slower jams on this album are little more refined and focused than what Never Better had.

and Dre is reviewing KL

I've always thought POS is at his best when he's just on fire. I wasn't sure how the new beat style would work with that but thanks to tracks like Get Down and Weird Friends he's shown he can kill it over this weird new dancey shit. And there are more moments like that than on Never Better, so yeah I think it's better to.
