From AaronOP
This album just reeks depression, which is wonderfully crafted with the weird and distorted samples that often don't seem to work together and Earl's melancholic tone of voice.

From mdbaxter
I don't believe this album is meant to be broken down track by track. This is because as good as each song is on its own, in the context of the album they are that much better. The album starts not unlike previous Earl music, maybe a little more methodical than normal, but nothing unheard of before. "Red Water" is, in my opinion, the song that sets the tone for the album. It is the first song that has this indescribable feeling around it that is unique to this album and is what, I think, ties it together. The songs don't really run into each other, some sound similar, most have a chopped up old timey sample but the certain obscure aesthetic is what ties them together. The only other song that gives a better sense of this overarching aesthetic is "Peanut". It is an incredible song that you makes you feel like you're feeling what Earl is feeling and that is a foreboding depression that is darker than dark. This only gets darker when you realize that everything before this song was recorded with the intention of using the album to make amends with his estranged father and the last two songs are recorded after his sudden passing and before he could hear it.

When you listen to an Earl album you expect the lyricism to be what carries it, he has been one of the best lyricists in music since he started, but the production value and the Earl's delivery relative to the music behind him is what sets the album apart from others. It's his ability to express himself with more than just the meaning of his words that makes this a great album.

Madvillainy's unacknowledged son, whom he ran out on.

The instrumentals are stripped down but have a surreal feeling to them that pairs well with Earl’s emotional, clever, hard hitting flows.

2018 has been an amazing year for music. The fact that an album released this late in the year in a contender for AOTY is telling.
