4.0 excellentdihstyle69 | September 23rd 16

i wasn't really looking forward to this album, even though i really enjoyed the waters but i simply hadn't put much attention into the singles he had dropped prior to this release. i gotta say, i was really impressed by the end result! there aren't many artists tackling the concept of love in the way mick did here, and that's easily the strongest aspect of this album. the concept is wonderfully realized thanks to jenkins' always-on-point lyricism and interesting skits that give another layer to the project (the glitches can become annoying, though). the beats are also fantastic and varied: in one moment, you're listening to a really chill track and after a few minutes, you see yourself listening to a kaytranada assisted jam that's probably the best track this album has to offer (communicate, btw). all in all, extremely good follow-up to the waters that actually plays like a sequel in more ways than one if you pay close attention. 4

Mick Jenkins likes his projects to form around a central theme. The Water[s] concept was easy enough to grasp, but what's dealt with on The Healing Component? The overarching theme here is love; love for yourself, love for one another, love for pleasures, and the dangers of love for money. While that's not exactly a topic rarely touched on, Mick's approach to it is stunningly well-done. With production that is smooth and clear, and yet intricate and shifting, Mick is able to tell his carefully-crafted stories of how he has come to embrace love and how it affects his and the people around him's lives with ease. Though the production may be mellow for the majority of the record, Mick prevents it from becoming a boring affair by switching up his delivery, sounding laid-back and almost stoned on one song and then incensed and frustrated on the next. The guest spots here all do wonderfully, and Mick even showcases some really good singing chops on a few tracks here. All of this and more is what makes The Healing Component a fantastic hip-hop album. Oh, and the kids name was "Rocket".
