    You've gone too far melon man. You've gone mad with power. This album was so amazing. Every track was a absolute banger. I usually respect your opinions with stuff even when you give low ratings to my favorite artist Eminem I usually respect it but this. Giving a not good to what I thought was a 7 at minimum. This is what I must consider a "bad review"

    The problem with this album is the bars and lyrics don't really connect to each other. Just a bunch of non sequiturs and one liners. The content is repetitive as hell and some songs sound alike. But honestly I just listened to it and enjoyed the album for the most part. 7/10

    Alotta young "Lyrical Miracle" rappers suffer from either Dry Rap Syndrome or Dry Beat Syndrome. They always have some technical ability, but lack the needed polish to be taken seriously. Or they just have the worse ears for beats and mainly choose the most stale boom bap / trap beat combos that tries to be both and just ends up just being nothing but a mind-numbingly drab coat hanger for their bars. And Joyner seems to have both these problems.

    Wow! Average? I just am having a hard time believing anyone could say that about anything related to her music. I listen to so many genres it’s ridiculous. I’m a songwriter myself. All I can say is that girls voice may sound similar to some other people per say, but they can’t hit the highs she can. They damn sure can’t write like her, or probably even play an instrument. Julien is one hell of a guitarist, and pianist as well. I think you need to spend some more time with this album. Shadowboxing to me is one of the highlights of this record. From a lyrical standpoint you’d be hard pressed to find a better more well crafted song that hits you emotionally like those lyrics. I’m not tearing your critical skills down or anything here, it’s just this album although at times may be simplistic, that doesn’t make it in any way average. The average music of today no offense, but it sucks! Julian to me is one of the very few artists who I would still refer to as an actual artist. Get to know that album from a personal perspective by living through so many of those things, and it will never leave you. Her lyrics terrify me how they relate to my own demons. There’s more under the surface here, and more than meets the eye! Just saying that’s my two cents. Not anyone will really care probably, or take the time to read this. At least you dip into multiple genres, and I do agree with many of your other reviews. Just not this time. Hey that’s why we all have opinions. It’s just I could give you a million reasons why this album is so meaningful.

    it seems like Joyner prioritizes flow and sounds that are heard from the surface if you listen with your brain shut off entirely. honestly it’s not all the bad if you don’t actually listen too closely to what is being said or done. I really liked his stuff a lot when I had little understanding of music but as I sorta matured his music is just meh for me

    Really good review but I think with mortal man he's not asking if his fans will still be loyal to him to me "when shit hits the fan is you still a fan" meant "when thing's get hard, do you still work hard". I think that's what Kendrick meant because he says "I freed you from being a slave to your mind" and after an album that that shows overcoming adversity he wants to make sure you actually apply when things get hard and you don't just listen to the message once and forget about it.
