'Dave's debut album 'Psychodrama' released in 2019, received widespread acclaim from critics, said to be one of the best albums of the year by some. The second album continues with the same line combining darker tracks as well as some lighter, even danceable tunes. The First 5 tracks are pretty much perfect. The beats have a common thread but at the same time, there is a good variation with sounds and instrumental arrangements.
The piano plays again big part in many of the tracks. The long tracks stand out nicely from the present hip-hop scene. It's great to see this kind of pick and not just "easy singles". The middle part of the album can't hold up with the rest of the album as well as 'Twenty to One' which is slightly boring compared to other tracks. I still bet that this album will find its way to some other people's favorite albums of 2021.
