R&B

Artist: 
Frank Ocean
Label: 
Def Jam Recordings

This is an album that is definately meant to be played in it's origional sequence; filled with interludes and sounds under a minute long (6 out of the 18 tracks). The short songs filled with static, tv noise, and artificial inteligence voices give it that Childish Gambino - "Because the Internet" sound. There are absolutely no bangers on this album! Endless is full of "chill kickback," and "cry by myself at home" tracks.

This album features 5 songs of a beautiful female vocals, the first track, has a nice build but the beat seems a little off, I think the album could use a little work. if you like Rhianna, Sia, Lordus, or Adriana Grande, I would check out this album. Its lyrics are simple and repeat, good for singing along to. Most songs have some production errors, and skips that need to be cleaned up, however they are all clean.  I recommend track 1, 3, and 5. The album primarily feature female vocals over drum and electronic beats, not a lot of hip hop beats or rap lyrics.

When I saw this album was available to be reviewed, I snatched it up as soon as I could. I had already been listening to it on repeat since it was released on Apple Music. As far as 'hip hop' albums go, this is definitely R&B. There are exactly 0 bangers on this album, and it is beautiful. Between pitched vocals, a variety of slow tempo beats, and Frank Ocean's voice, it is the epitome of lay back and get in your feels. My personal favorite on the album is Ivy, but this CD does not have clean versions of the tracks, and Ivy is explicit.

Take the biggest investments of love and dating emotions and the biggest build up of hate and distrust and put that to futuristic beats with good lyrics. Imagine sitting down with your ex and trying to talk about the good and bad times and trying to reconcile. Now imagine sitting down with your current significant other and trying to talk through the mess from your past relationships. This CD, explores all of those emotions. Big Sean and Jhené Aiko reflect on the multiple feelings that are experienced during a relationship.

Daptone Records

Talk about an album with a story and soul. Changes has songs and lyrics that are of common topic but Charles Bradley adds powerful vocals with a vintage touch on the music that makes for a foot tapping album. Instruments include your typical piano, guitar, precussion, but in many songs you can hear the trumpet, saxaphone, and flute. A popular person I would compare this to is Al Green but just a little more fast paced with rougher vocals. I enjoyed the album and wouldnt mind listening to it on the occasion or having a few songs on in the background during a dinner party.

The One & Only, Jackson Sturkey is an awesome album. Jackson Sturkey has a certain Jon Bellion vibe with his blend of hip hop, fusion, and jazz. There isn’t a song on this album that I did not like at first listen. The two recommended songs 2 Dope, Cash, Love and 5 Gone Tomorrow are the only tracks that you can play, but if you can download this album and give it a listen it will be really worth it. Jackson Sturkey's music sounds a lot like Twenty One Pilots, with hip hop base with a a pop influence.
