Album Review: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind by Logic

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind


Whether you are a new or old Logic fan, a lot of people were excited for this project, especially since she hasn’t released an album since 2017’s Everybody. While Confessions of a Dangerous Mind isn’t Logic’s best album, it is definitely a solid one.

Let’s start out with the title track, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. While I did enjoy this song, it sounded like an extra song from Young Sinatra IV. In my opinion, it just didn’t fit the vibe of the album.

After that, we go to Homicide, which was another single for the album. The opening of the song... I have no words, it’s awkward and unnecessary. I get Logic is trying to be “funny” or trying to be “the best”, but it just doesn’t fit for this song.

The next two songs are Wannabe and clickbait. Wannabe is a great interlude track that goes straight into Wannabe. I really wanted Wannabe to be a great track... The beat is good, but the part where he says, "I'd suck a dick just to prove it ain't that way" just doesn't sound right. I know there has been some beef with another rapper, but he could have gone about it another way.

The next four tracks have just floated past my mind. It was hard to not space out during these songs. They are normal trap beats that you would hear from any artist. They're okay, but I wouldn't expect major popularity from these songs.

I had to check who was featured on the song Icy. If Logic was going for a Childish Gambino voice, he hit it spot on. I love the Childish Gambino like singing in this song. If you have not checked this song out yet, I would advise you do so!

I can't say much about Still Ballin. It was a great Wiz Khalifa feature.

For Cocaine, it seemed like they were using a play of rhymes from King's Dead.

Limitless does not fit the flow of the album in my opinion. Logic is trying to "sing-rap" in this song, while most of the album has been straight rapping. Nice change of scenery, but it does not fit this album whatsoever.

I know I said I didn't like Keanu Reeves much when I said I was looking forward to this album, but this song has grown on me. Probably one of my favorites from this album.

I was really looking forward to the Will Smith feature. I really was, but the message Logic is trying to convey doesn't fit the style of the song. If you have the chance to collaborate with Will Smith, don't ruin it by trying to spread a positive message over an old school hip hop beat.

The last two tracks lead to an amazing end to the album. BOBBY and Lost In Translation closed up all the loose ends, as well as amazing beats.


Overall, this is a solid album, but came with many flaws.
Rating: 6/10
Favorite Tracks: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Icy, Keanu Reeves, BOBBY

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of RosalĂ­a and Lil Baby.…

Allah-Las is an American indie rock band consisted of four different members. LAHS marks the band's fourth studio album. While I have always known about Allah-Las, I have never had the chance to sit down and listen to one their albums, even though they have been on my "listen to list" for a while now. Now, with the release of LAHS, I had the chance to sit down and give them a chance, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

The album starts out with Holding Pattern. There's an easy guitar groove going on at the very beginning. Right off the bat, this reminds me of some old-school classic rock, as we…

CZARFACE is a hip hop collective formed by hip hop duo 7L & Esoteric, as well as Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck. CZARFACE has had an eventful year, starting off with CZARFACE Meets Ghostface, which is a collaborative project between CZARFACE and Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan. CZARFACE also dropped an instrumental album titled Double Dose of Danger (which I was able to snag on Record Store Day this year!) and the album I am going to be reviewing, The Odd Czar Against Us. While I just discovered CZARFACE last year, they definitely reminded me of MF DOOM, with the comic book-like characters. Both also use…
