February 24, 2017 on Future Poised To Become First Artist To Debut #1 Albums In Consecutive Weeks
It's pretty good! Honestly it didn't grab me as much I was hoping that it would - sort of one of those things I enjoy while I'm listening to it but don't have much desire to go back to repeatedly - but it's certainly solid. The lyrics are good, very impressionistic.

Oh, it's completely meaningless! Did my utter lack of excitement not come across above? He could keep releasing a new album a week for months and they'd all shoot up to #1 and I'd be just as unimpressed. Popular artists sell no matter what.,
