Great review, I was wondering when I was going to see one on here.

Thanks! I didn't see one go up after the week of release, and I wanted to review it for my blog, so I figured it might be a good one to post (he's gained quite a bit of attention for this record). I just know there's a lot of mixed opinions, so hopefully nobody feels my writing is hyperbolic.

Again, nice review Mook. Album dropped off hard for me after a few listens.

Thanks duder. Yeah, I'm not sure if it will necessarily ever surpass Camp or EP for me, but I think it shows a fantastic amount of progression and does a pretty great job of setting itself apart from previous releases or even other hip-hop artists, really. But hey, that's the beauty of music being subjective, yeah? At least we' don't disagree over Falling in Reverse...

The new album is a headache to me. It doesn't help that he's become a mega pretentious hipster..
...Examples?

I started following him when he had that 1st EP and the song Freaks and Geeks. His songwriting was clear and he had a personality. The EP as a whole was good, he sounded authentic and genuine.

Camp was meh. Kind of angry.

Not wearing shoes? That's hippie shit, man. Shoes are straight up useful for our feet.

I have seen interviews with him recently and he acts like he's above it all. Like he's transcended culture with his music. In one he was like sitting cross legged for his interview.
EP was great and so was Camp- both classic Glover. I mean, he's attempting to evolve and establish a creative personality; I see nothing wrong with that. The Beatles, Beyonce and Garth Brooks all had to become different people at one point or another in their careers while trying to separate themselves, so why can't Glover do the same to a lesser extreme?

I just don't see how a lack of shoes or his posture during an interview makes him a "mega pretentious hipster" (despite how useful shoes may be...although, who doesn't go barefoot from time to time).
