Childish Gambino - Because The Internet (Review)
Let me start by saying HOLY SHITTTTT!!!!!
This album is by far the fucking best shit of the year out of all artist. From the very beginning of this album you are literally dragged into it as soon as “The Library” plays your brain is going to be like wtf is happening to me! Over the past few weeks Childish Gambino has had about 5 songs released to the world and I can tell you now without a doubt those weren’t even the tip of the iceberg. I’m actually not done listening to the album thats how excited I am about it lol.
The best way I can describe this is Drake meets Tyler the Creator meets Local Natives. There are a lot of strange sounds not familiar to hip-hop listeners and I’m so happy he did that it really is going to open up a lot of listeners to other experimental artist. I say he’s like Drake because of the singing and the melodies but Gambino does it better in my opinion. Tyler the Creator because of the strange violent sounds and the neo-soul sounds I’m hearing. Local natives because of the story telling element and very “hippie” tone I’m hearing its like a free your mind type of thing. I also get a Weeknd vibe and a N.E.R.D sound from a few songs like “Pink Toes” Ft Jhene Aiko and “Flight of the Navigator”.
I can tell you 1 thing you will love about this album, once you think OMG this shit is amazing it gets better every song the replay value on this is going to be off the charts. I might listen to this for the next 4 or 5 months straight everyday. I don’t want to tell you everything about it I want you to go have your own experiences with it but please support “BECAUSE THE INTERNET” iTunes is previewing the full album now.
I gave this album a flawless 10 out of 10!
