    I feel like an 8. I think a couple more tracks could have pushed it to a 10.

    I only heard it 3 times so far. Intro is very strong, but not sure if it's something I would keep listening to after a while.

    not a huge fan of the last song (ye is on point tho) and I don't really feel the hook in all mine. Beat and Ye are good though.

    Yikes, Ghost Town and Wouldn't leave are definitely standouts for me. Also No Mistakes is nice.

    After those 3 listens I replayed the f--- out of Ghost Town and Yikes though.. so that might be a sign that the replay value of the whole album isn't that good to me .. also aside from those 2 songs nothing blew me away.

    That said, it never drags (it can't really, being so short) so its not hard to finish. Fun listen, that maybe could have had 1 or 2 more songs.

    Just like you it could be after 15 spins that I get bored of it and will stick to the highlights but at this point I still like it. Not his best, but a solid project.

    Did you dislike it right away or after more listens?

    Listened to it in the car first thing in the morning but it was already underwhelming then. Unlike TLOP in the cinema where I had so many moments like d--- I can’t wait to hear that in CDQ. Unfortunately that feeling wasn’t there this time

    It is an 8 for me, if it had a couple harder trakcs like the switch up of the intro, it'd be a 10
