Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

You’re kinda tired but still want to listen to a rap album.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s a really solid piece of art, I really like the cover and think that Open Mike Eagle can continue garnering fans through his album covers alone.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Not really.

Final Thoughts:

Open Mike Eagle’s Dark Comedy kinda put me asleep, and I think that lazy flow is what he’s going for. It’s great for what it is, but I also started finding myself getting a little out of the album about halfway through. This is the kind of artist who could really make a solid album with some more featuring artists.
