    Alright, so from my first (and definitely only) spin...

    There's barely a noticeable or notable moment on the whole thing.

    Sounds like one big long song. Not because it's so cohesive, but because it's so generic. The production is generic, the hooks are... I mean, a lot sounds like a pale 'Weekend imitation or something. Super bland.

    Feels like it's aimed at modern times and sounds, it's just not musically interesting to listen to though. Lots of really dumb moments and lyrics too... from a guy who started out as a smart lyricist, and also was great at writing hooks... now he's half-crooning in autotune about nothing, or rapping to appeal to the lowest common denominators.

    One of the only rap moments which stood out to me was Big K.R.I.T's verse. The best hook and overall song, and closer to some of his actual good writing is the last song "Black Mirror". Other than that, completely forgettable. 3/10.

    It's quite amazing to see how far he's fallen. Not just musically but commercially - going from having the two biggest songs in the WORLD, to releasing straight-to-VHS microwave albums. Somewhere along the line... his musical zest nosedived.
