Re: Albums of 2017

Beautiful Thugger Girls by Young Thug is possibly my fav album of 2017. Young Thug has so many different deliveries, certainly it's not a boring listen.

But After Laughter comes across as too silly, and maybe a bit fake. WHAAAAT? The lyrics are very honest. What part sounds fake? Perhaps sappy is a better word. For me anyway. I guess I thought of the word fake cos there's a song called Fake Happy. But I guess the lyrics themselves aren't fake.

New Gorillaz album is a mess IMO. I see they're trying to be hip hop, or actually their previous albums were hip hop sorta, but this new album sounds disorganized. Maybe too many ideas.

7.4/10 which translates to like 3.25 stars in my rating system.
