4.5 superbWaiting around to die | April 8th 22

It's crazy to me that theres people that still don't get it. Billy is one of the greatest ever. E V E R.

The production is phenomenal. Dark, transportive, and deep. Features are fantastic as well.

5.0 classicNorth0House2 | April 8th 22

Best I?ve heard Woods in years. This is everything I hoped for and more. I could see it hitting a 5 over time.

Edit: I didn’t need to wait. It’s the best album I’ve heard this year. Already on the third spin and it just gets better.
Absolutely top shelf stuff. Not only is Woods at the best I’ve heard him, but Preservation completely killed the
production here. It’s wonderful.

4.5 superbimyourzer0 | August 5th 22

Only Billy Woods can create a contemplative hip hop record that has pure bangers in the form of commentaries about the effects of imperialism and capitalism that sounds like the instrumentation was out of the 1800s. Dusty guitars, wheezing harmonicas, and derelict pianos sound like this mysterious and slow paced effort of rebellion was recorded in the backwoods (get it) shed in the rural bayous of Louisiana . 9/10

I can see this becoming a 5 honestly. These instrumentals are unforgettable and unique as all hell. My first few spins I simply felt a little unnerved by the experience, but soon found that I couldn't get songs like Asylum, Wharves, NYNEX, and Remoseless out of my head. oh yeah, and I also couldn't get every other song out of my head either. Lyricism so dense and evocative that I'm still puzzling out what some of it means, but I think the impression that each song is supposed to give is clear. Billy Woods is a master of his craft.

4.0 excellentErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | April 26th 22

I'm like Asleep: every time I listen to Billy Woods, I'm left puzzled as I can tell I like what I've heard, but I struggle explaining in detail why I like it. Let's go for the usual: intricate lyricism, varied flows, and hypnotizing beats are very nice to listen to. 3.8

sickest shit this year, this has been an insane year for music so far and its only april

Bump

4.0 excellentjmh886 | April 9th 22

it's a 4 right now, but as every woods grows on me i'm preemptively bumping the rating. typical dark and dense woods, maybe even more so than anything he's done yet.

Bump

4.5 superbCrisStyles | April 8th 22

Billy Woods' incredible run continues. Between his last couple of albums as part of Armand Hammer, Brass with Moor Mother, Hiding Places and now this album, he's been sky-rocketing up my favorite hip-hop artists list.

Bump

5.0 classicBraeckderm | April 8th 22

Great album! It's a little bit more experimental than some other stuff I know by Billy Woods but it works for me.
