    I wrote this right when it came out expecting to be able to post it on SP right away but it took a little longer to launch so I never got a chance to post it until now when it isn't very timely...but here it is anyway! Working on republishing all my old reviews as well, will make a review archive thread once they're up:

    being an X stan i gotta say this project is uncohesive trash. but its not like they put any effort into crafting a cohesive and structural mixtape.

    REVENGE is the worst possible intro to X lmaoo

    if you need a good intro to him, just DL his discog (there's a MEGA link floating around somewhere) and listen to all of it.

    This isn't supposed to be a project; it was just X's way to bring his older music to the masses, after Look At Me blew up.

    Yeah I downloaded his discog and poked around sometime last year and wasn't really sold on him. I think he has potential and does some interesting stuff but it's unrealized as of now IMO. It was his first "commercial" offering and he was/is buzzing which was why I decided to review it.

    In all seriousness tho, while "Revenge mostly sounds like if Lil Uzi Vert had a younger brother who tried to make a Death Grips album after hearing Nirvana for the first time" is probably the most apt description of x as an artist I've ever heard, I think the music only seems shallow in the context of Revenge; and I don't think an artist necessarily needs to go the future route and create an established mythos of depression to justify their more questionable comments (although I do agree that in this case futures drug fueled anger and sorrow is more impactful than x's, but I think that's more due to the fact that one is a teenage SoundCloud rapper and one has had years and dozens of mixtapes to build up to their most emotional moments)

    Taylor for President, great review you practically summed up the good and bad of X. He still has room for improvement so it's worth keeping an eye on him, it's his outside of the studio lifestyle that has me concerned.
