Album Rating: 1.7
Taking jabs at all three of the individuals that make up MellowHigh is an affair that could surely substantiate essays, but the truth is that the trio's first collaborative full-length suffers mostly from the fact that it does not stick. The combined effect of having two MCs who contribute nothing more than an endless succession of samey verses, a producer who insists on throwing totally random shit into a 4/4 sequencing and calling them "beats", and a surplus of boring hooks yields only a single word: forgettable. While I have to give credit to "Yu" and "Troublesome" for being excitingly constructed--especially concerning production--there's just too little on MellowHigh that makes the album seem at all focused, or even thought out.
