Man, some of the lines on this are so surprisingly clever.



Like in The Beast when he says "You with the pitchfork, hey bail me out" it's a really simple line until you catch the whole hey bail/hay bale connection. #whoa

Agreed about the vocals being kind of unbearable at times, but damn the beats are wicked on this.

I feel like I would dig Melancholia more if he hadn't already used a few of the lyrics from it in an old Freewrite he released:

This is absolutely nothing like DTS. That album was a super 'meh' for me and I love this.



Actually I take that back, I can see why people like the beats in DTS. I find beats to be the most

boring part of any rap record so I don't care if they're awful or amazing. Probably why i like this

more than DTS.

Digging: Wil Wagner - Laika

i am a total sucker for stuff this kind of emotionally charged, atmospheric hip-hop. there isn't a

single weak track to be found here - they're all phenomenal in some way.

I feel like the balancing act sounds like a dramatic play, whereas this is like a film. really cool stuff.

The writing here is so much more focused than on The Balancing Act. On TBA I feel like a lot of the times he was just writing for the sake of writing, to get things off his chest. Here, every song has a specific purpose and the lyrics reflect that. He even acknowledges this on The Beast:



"I got lectured on the matter

That my topics are myopic, non-sequitur and scattered

He uses big words complex with all the patterns

But maybe it's for me and not you"



Honestly this record gets better and better with every listen. His writing is now a lot more natural. There are a few moments on TBA and TAOD where he's doing this ridiculous rhyme scheme and it feels like he's choosing words just BECAUSE they fit the scheme, not really because they're the best fit for what he's trying to say. Here, he still has the crazy rhyme schemes, but the word choices are a lot more cohesive and matured.

yeah i was quick to give it a 5 as well and i'll probably drop the score in time but i'm currently enamoured by this.



a long winter, the beast, melancholia, seven devils, and russian roulette are my favourites.

why was dts super meh



I can't really explain. It just didn't feel very clever, and I think Onry's rapping is pretty boring. I know I'm in the minority though.

I actually agree with you. I don't think I would listen to DTS if it wasn't for Zavala's production, whereas I know I'd listen to Sadistik over pretty much any beats.



lyrics >> beats yo.
