They spent the whole review mocking his opinions and his sound (they didn't even clearly praise an aspect of the album until the 6th paragraph). Reads more like a 6.0 than an 8.0 review. Lots of artist name-dropping, genre-flaunting and condescension instead of actual analysis. Honestly the most off-the-mark review I've seen them publish in ages.

Mhhh. I just finished my first session. Kinda disappointed. Like Retrograde much more than anything else. Maybe it will clock over time.

the thing with album art to me is it gives you an image to put in your head while you listen. it sets the mood. its always in the back of my mind either consciously or subconsciously and its just part of the whole package. art shouldnt affect the music but on some small level it can very slightly add or detract to the experience for me. because its all art in the end.

sounds like pitchfork in general. Was interesting reading it after this review, the RZA rap seems very polaristic.

does anyone else feel like the video for Retrograde was influenced by Melancholia?
