Yeah this is excellent. Sput needs more hip hop lovers. Best I've heard Danny Brown yet IMO. Very smooth, fun, and full of engaging tracks. This will definitely be one of my favorites of the year for sure.

If you were thinking his last album was a bit too mellow and down, get ready to hear even more of that this round.

It's fine, nothing gonna beat Scaring the Hoes. I like how Brown is singing with his two-sided voice.

Super introspective and at times downright melancholic, Danny Brown mellows out even more since his last release. That in itself is not really an issue here, the major issue is the last 10 minutes of the album is just very low key and kind of leads to an album that starts off with a ton of variety to just deflate a bit. One thing the introspection leads to is a bit more opportunity to learn about Danny Brown and his personal struggles while getting some great story telling verses. From the opener to 'Celibate' the album is a 4 with 'Tantor' probably being the highlight of the record. Just fizzles out a bit too much at the end.

3.5 greatlz41 | December 2nd 23

The transparent, stripped-down, everyday crises of "Quaranta" balance Brown's personae between the squawking sideshow freak and dejected, ageing loner. One suspects this will be one of the most enduring hip-hop albums of the year.

3.3 greatErwann S. STAFF | November 27th 23

Brown is at his most introspective here, shedding off most of the zany Peggy beats for more grounded abstract hip hop - there still are some of his typical beats and there though. Quaranda features a slower tempo than usual for him, which translates with the almost complete disappearance of his nasal vocals, replaced by a more fitting lower register.

3.5 greatajcollins15 | November 22nd 23

I want to start by saying the lyricism on the sixth solo album from Detroit rapper Danny Brown is probably his most blunt and direct set to date. He doesn?t beat around the bush with his self-reflection on the last 40 years of life and music. Plus the first six tracks show a real ability to create experimental abstract hip hop beats. Bringing in legendary underground rapper Quelle Chris and Chris Keys as well as Kassa Overall leads to a lot of expansive and interesting instrumental backdrops over Danny?s heart-wrenching lyrics. However, the last five tracks (other than maybe ?Celibate?) are some of the most boring styles of abstract hip hop. I have never been a fan of the overly simple abstract hip hop scene that has come up since MIKE and Earl Sweatshirt blew up the scene several years ago. Overall ?Quaranta? is Danny?s most lyrically blunt record to date and there are some truly amazing beats on here, but he seems to lose focus on the instrumentals in the back half leaving to very weak set of closing tracks.

"Got a Mexican homie named Chinese Mike." --- Wasn't big on his last solo album but this is definitely a step back in the right direction.
