Sounds very good indeed!

This is definitely a top contender for my album of the year! I think theneedledrop (gag) was right on the money when he said Shamir's voice is definitely an acquired taste, not everyone is going to love this record, obviously, but there's definitely something special and unique about this album and about Shamir. The album's lead singles, "On The Regular" and "Call It Off" are both bops, but they're also very misleading in regards to the direction of this album, which sounds almost entirely different.

The hidden bonus track was a nice touch and the record, although fairly light, is mastered beautifully. The lyric book is also very cute.
