SINCERITY ALERT!!: And so we reach n.10...of the top ten greatest #albums ever ever.
Yes, day 10 of 10 days... favorite albums that brought joyous impact and are now on EVERYONE’s musical spinning #dreidel . (I know, I know.) As only their handler Dave can say: AL-VAAAAAAN!!! Sincerity part is: This album was our Christmas album for years. We all knew all the songs and every syllable. And timings. Probably one of the very few things to come along that knit our family together. No other Christmas album even comes close. Well, maybe Vince Guaraldi’s #peanuts , too. But, the best.
Thank you, Dirk R. Arnold for this annoying opportunity and @ssilviadaviss, we need to talk when you get here...
my favorite album of 2017: IWASVERYBAD by #IDK .
his story telling ability is the best I've heard since good kid mAAd city. the raw recalling of his childhood will suck you in, his imagery making you feel like you were there right with him as he holds up the pizza shop at gunpoint. his flows are refreshing and enjoyable to listen to with strong enunciation, riding each beat seemingly effortlessly. his transitions make the album feel like it's one large song with different paces in the flow and beats. they are not only seem less, but also imperative to the theme of the album, as it is supposed to be a retelling of the events in his childhood and adolescence that got him to where he was when writing the project: prison. his beats are heavy, but also unique, sounding again, like good kid mAAd city. they are dark at times, but also set the tone perfectly for songs in which he gets emotional about the relationship with his mother. i'm also going to point out that I see a strong Kanye influence in this work. not only were there lines from Family Business, but also sampled beats various Kanye songs (comment if you can tell me where you see Kanye's influence after listening). all this put together, and IWASVERYBAD became my favorite project from the past year, and I still listen to in it's entirety at least once a week. it's become one of the few artists not named Kendrick or Kanye to create an album that successfully blows my mind. i appreciate this album for the honesty, raw emotions, and attention to detail. i cannot wait to see what Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge has for us in the future.
