A new, moody style of hip-hop,
This review is from: Thank Me Later (Audio CD)This album was hyped to extreme proportions, and while it doesn't disappoint, some people may not be expecting the kind of music on Drake's 'Thank Me Later'.
The lead single, 'Over' does not at all reflect the kind of music on this album. Very few of the tracks are upbeat, save for the melodious 'Find Your Love' and the trumpet fused 'Miss Me'. Instead, Drake shows his introvert and reflective side rather than rapping dominantly about typical rap issues such as women and money. The songs are well produced and give the whole album a moody and chilled feel, especially from the Jay-Z featured 'Light Up'. This is definitely not a typical rap album in the slightest. This album is all about thinking about life, luck and the future. It rewards itself with repeat listens, and has to be one of the most consistent-sounding albums I've ever heard.
If you want to listen to something that isn't your typical rap and are sick of listening to illogical and dumb lyrics played on radio these days, give this a listen. It's a refreshing change and one of the best albums of this year.
