Album Reviews

I listen to a lot of music. Like a bad amount. Here’s every album and mixtape I’ve ever fully listened to and my personal grading on them. The scores are not based on anything other than just pure enjoyability. Scale goes from 1-10. One album’s 8 does not equal another’s 8.

Example: I gave Lil Yachty’s Lil Boat a 7, Drake’s Views a 7, and Kanye’s Late Registration a 7.5. That does not mean I think Lil Boat is musically equivalent to Views or just slightly weaker than Late Registration.

5 is OK. The album’s not bad. Some good songs, some I don’t care for. It’s NOT BAD. Anything 7 and up are albums I really enjoy. 9-10s are must listens.

Shorter Albums/ Mixtapes / EPs where there are only 3-5 songs, I’ll rate out of 5.

THESE ARE ALL OPINIONS.

Constantly Updated.
