Lucio’s album reviews November 16th 2018
Oxnard - Anderson .Paak
When I first heard Anderson’s recently released singles Tints and Bubblin I thought they were absolutely amazing and I was super excited to listen to the album. However with the first listen of the album I couldn’t help but feel a little underwhelmed and honestly bored which was very surprising to me because I love this type of music. I thought the lyrics, production, and flows were great but for some reason I couldn’t help but feel bored. I decided to give it another listen and I learned to appreciate it more but as of now I would have to rate it a light 7/10. I wouldn’t be surprised if I go back and listen to it, love it, and end up re-reviewing the album but as of now that’s my score.
The Grinch EP - Tyler, The Creator
I love Tyler but after listening to the first single off the Grinch soundtrack (which isn’t in the ep) I did not like it and honestly I was not looking forward to this soundtrack, but to my surprise it completely exceeded my expectations. Now, that doesn’t mean I think it’s great I like it but it isn’t amazing but I at first thought it was going to be like a 4 or 5/10. The production on this EP is absolutely amazing and at 10 minutes it is definitely short but sweet but when it comes to the lyrics and some of the themes of the songs they kinda seem corny and I don’t know if I can get down with the fact that he’s rapping about the Grinch. Overall I would say this is a strong to decent 6/10.
