I bought the album yesterday and have listened to about half of it so far. To me, a lot of it felt very familiar, as if it’s a mixture of tracks from Recovery and the MMLP2 with the same or similar themes and choruses. I have yet to hear a track that makes me think ‘this is a banger’ and will make me hit the rewind button.
19 tracks seems far too lengthy and I haven’t even heard a large chunk of the album yet. Of course I will listen to it in full a few times over for it to sink in, but at the moment I’m underwhelmed by the album.
