Great review! Can't wait to pick this up.
Thanks man!
Luh you
LOVE this album. I wished you had gone into the production side of things, because I really loved the work Boots did on songs like "Haunted" and "Blue." I've always wanted to hear Beyonce over music like that, which was kind of hinted at on "4" ("I Miss You" being an example), but I'm glad it was maximized on this record. She sounds great.
Yeah I'm extremely interested to see what boots does in the future - the production is very "of the moment" but it sounds much better executed than all but the highest quality releases of recent years. boots actually made a rap genius account and has been making a lot of annotations to the album...it's interesting to see what his thoughts are.
I can't wait to get paid on Friday to pick this up. I haven't heard a bad thing about the record yet.
You'll love it I think.

the more time i spent with it the more i liked it. it went from a 7ish on initial listen, with some reservations, to being pretty unabashed devotion (obviously) by the time i'd sunk into the review

Who ALREADY rated this and gave it a 4/10???

Thank you so much
it had a 0.25 when I read it (which was pretty soon after it was posted, so I have no idea who did that), I rated it an 8 and it brought the average to a 4.

Yeah, very "808' and Heartbreak"-informed Alt-R'n'B (is that still a thing?), but I think the production hinted at things that will allow the music to age gracefully. Do you know if Boots has worked with any artists worth noting?

It's certainly another entry in that category of vaguely similar "dark" r&b. as far as i know, this is the first anyone has heard of Boots.

Interesting! I'll keep my eye out for more work from him/her(?).

BTW, great review! Great work putting the art in context and analyzing from that point.
