Default Apathy- Connecticut Casual

After about 4-6 listens, the album grows on you over time. It isn't his best work though. I would say its his most unique. No AOTP no Demigodz. I had super high expectations for this album after Honkey Kong. I think in comparison to his catalogue this isn't that strong. However, on its own it is decent.

Most of the content is folk tales or stories from Connecticut, so maybe its just hard for me to connect on that level.

What does everyone else think?

Yeah I dont think this touches 'Honkey Kong'. Decent album I would say since I had very high hopes for this. Some of the production is a little blah. Peace

What? After my first listen I think this sounds a lot stronger than Honkey Kong.. Probably his best since his debut. Can't really comment much on tracks and such since I had it in the background of playing burnout, but so far I love this.

I really struggle to like him. Good voice, beat selection, concepts, bars BUT..... no soul. THat's the ultimate judge of good music to me, so... not for me, I guess.
