So, I was wrong. This is actually quite a cool album, if given proper consideration. Part of the problem with appreciating it is that it's so different in both instrumentation and general mood than most other hip-hop. All of the tracks have a really unique kinda UK garage/downtempo/IDM sound to them. Crabs in A Bucket culd literally be straight off a Burial record. Also more generally, the album has a lot more of a sparse and dark feel to it. Even the tracks that could be played at a party would make for a pretty dark party. Though it may seem fairly hookless, its just a lot more understated and subtle. Overall, a pretty cool unique album

A fairly underwhelming album as a whole. The IDM influence is interesting for sure, but doesn't amount to much. Much of the album seems pretty devoid of hooks. The IDM makes it seem very dry, while he seems to be trying to create more banging songs with his delivery style and lyrics. The one spot where I looked up and thought "Oh this is sick" is when kendrick came on. The second half of BagBak breaks out a bit too

Decent, but underwhelming. Let's be honest, Azealia Banks (among other queer rappers) has been doing this for over half a decade and not only is the production behind her tracks 10 times more innovative but she's a better rapper... and yet "big fish theory" is the next big thing ??? I'm not buying it. I think it's time to stop hyping these mediocre men to death who incorporate a bit of electronica in their tracks whilst saying the most basic shit and passing it off as something with far greater racial/political/philosophical importance to critics.

The first two tracks and the last 3 really stood out to me. Interesting production and I enjoyed Vince's flow. Outside of those tracks though, the songs feel a little empty. I feel like Vince is right on the edge of making something great and this album just catches him at a weird time in his growth. Looking forward to the next project.

This record was an interesting change of pace for Vince. I do respect Vince for being a hilarious individual, but his last album never clicked me personally. But this was cool. Beat work was pretty cool. I do need to give these lyrics a listen. But this a great album to listen to

Really really reaaaally enjoying this album right now. While this album does have a fair amount of pop appeal (looking at the production on Big Fish, as well as Rain Come Down as a whole), it manages to very much have its own sound. "Yeah Right" is contagiously energetic and bombastic to no end, "Love Can Be" rocked my world with its crisp and slick production the first time I heard it, and Both "Big Fish" and "Bagbak" serve as persistent earworms. On top of all of this, Vince's originality with both his flows his lyrics never fail to hold my attention. Obviously, this album isn't perfect and isn't without its flaws. The album starts to lose steam during "Samo" (though I still like this song) and especially "Party people", and I also wouldn't say that I was a gigantic fan of "Rain Come Down either". Overall, this is possibly my rap AOTY so far.

Best Tracks: Yeah Right, Love Can Be, Big Fish, BagBak, 745

Worst Track: Party People
