    I feel this deserved its own thread because this track stands-out in a different way.

    Especially the 'still totally inappropriate' and trumpet/horn/whatever vibe...

    A lot have commented on it but seriously; as a long-term Em fan, I can't remember something he's done which sounds like... pleasant and artsy. He has been an amazing artist, but his whole vibe has been 'aggression' and abrasiveness... that flow vs. that backdrop is beautiful.

    Also "Higher", coming right after, noticed there's some horns in that too - nice placement right after, as connects the tracks and adds some fluidity to the flow of the album.

    I agree. That part after beat switch, when beat went from melodic af to trumpet one... Chills.

    like i said in the other thread. I want a full album like this, classical instruments and minimalistic beats but with that trap style and mostly rap hooks. Just imagine that production with Em in this form. He can top MMLP

    if there ever was a chance, one last shot, it's pretty much right now.

    if he aimed for a Q1 2022 release...

    I really enjoy gnat and I think for the rest of my life when I hear it I will regard it as one of the best em songs of all time.

    Word. Both side A and B made me really happy in 2020. He made up for Revival and if this is the last thing he made, I"m good.
