We Need To Talk

You all know my usual deal, I like to listen to music while doing something else and depending on how good an album is, I either find myself finishing the task with ease or in the case of We Need to Talk, sitting on my couch with my eyes closed listening to every lyric and getting lost in the story. At only 36 minutes long, the album is definitely a product of the streaming era since the songs are catchy and say a lot in a short time, but end too quickly for my liking. That isn’t on Tayla, the average song length has dropped almost 30 secs since hip-hop was born, so it makes sense that most artist now make shorter songs. Plus, they want you to repeat the track since they’re getting paid for every stream. My listening of that album alone may put Tayla and any future Tayla Jr. through college.

Some Rap Songs by Earl Sweatshirt

I always have a hard time picking an album to review and this month was no different. I sat with Oxnard by Anderson .Paak for a week, then got hooked up with a copy of Meek’s Championships a day before it was released, only to land on writing about Earl’s new joint. All 3 albums probably reflect different aspects of my taste in music.

It's About Time by Chic

With one foot in disco and the other in EDM, It’s About Time is enjoyable, though it may take a bit of an adjustment for long-time Chic fans to get accustomed to the very “of-the-moment” vibe of the record. Despite its modern tropes, the album does manage to rise above most pop radio schlock thanks to the excellent musicianship on display here
