Today we went to Burgerfi for lunch. We usually only go for special occasions since it’s so expensive, but I was having a good day today. I’m unfortunately not gonna be reviewing Childish Gambino’s new album since it’s not Hip Hop, so this is probably the closest thing you’ll ever get to that. It’s amazing tho. Honestly it’s probably my album of the year. It’s definitely my favorite non-Hip Hop album ever. That’s coming from someone who never listens to anything aside from Hip Hop tho, so take it with a plethora of grains of salt. The only song I didn’t like was Have Some Love. That song is a solid 3 outta 5 for me. Terrified, California & The Night Me & Your Mama met are all 4s. Everything else is a 5 outta 5 for me. That makes this album a 90. It got the same score as Because The Internet, which is one of my favorite albums of all time. Yeah. If I had to choose one over the other I’d go with Because The Internet, but I still really love Awaken, My Love! I just prefer Hip Hop over Funk/Soul. My favorite track is either Boogieman or Zombies. It might’ve been Riot if that track was longer. So yeah. I love the album. If you aren’t a fan of a lot of different types of music you probably won’t like this album very much. I guess that’s kinda confusing since I literally only ever listen to Hip Hop. I’m a lot more open minded than I used to be tho. Anyway, that’s my half assed review of Awaken, My Love! Enjoy the video.
