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

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…

Album Review: ZUU by Denzel Curry

Denzel Curry is an American singer, rapper, and songwriter. ZUU was released on May 31, 2019 and marks Denzel Curry's fourth studio album. This album pays homage to his roots in Miami, Florida.

The first track of the album is the title track, ZUU. Zuu is a nickname for Carol City, which is a suburb in Miami. Denzel Curry talks about how he made a lot of money when he was in Miami, but now that he made some money, it is time for him to move out of the "Zuu". Even though he moved out, he's still giving credit to his home town Carol City, and the Miami-Dade area as a whole. The end of the track hints towards the next track, RICKY.

RICKY is the second track off the album and the first single Denzel Curry dropped for this project. This song actually pays tribute to Curry's father. This song takes us back to his childhood. His father, Ricky, would tell Denzel Curry stories from his childhood, as well as advice. Basically, his dad helped him grow up in Carol City and to…
