    When I dislike an album I check with Anthony to see if Im wrong. I was not. Extremely dissapointing as Ive been fallowing Gambino for a long time now and have loved everything hes put out until this point. Just have to give it a few more listens to see if it grows on me but man, this was a let down.

    The project is not a haphazard collection of tracks; everything is intimately connected beginning with "This Is America". There's a meta level of Glover's recent work that most reviewers seem to be missing or don't have the time or the faculties to explore. It's ALL about the white powers-that-be's control of everything throughout history and a system of cultural co-option/appropriation that exploits black culture, and subsequently, the black entertainer's place within that system. It's sort of a meta horror project. This is why there's such a wide variety of musical styles from through the ages (from tribal up to almost parodical takes on Travis Scott and Future) and it's all tied together by this prevalent odd dissonance and electronic strangeness that often sounds like someone diddling with dials. And of course the recurring theme of time. Watch the "This is America" video again with the thought that the sing-and-dance entertainer at the center of this SHOW is essentially a robot controlled by the white powers-that-be, speaking what the white powers-that-be want black society to hear. They're telling black society to just buy into the system they've been given and grind until you're happy on a mountain of money ("black man get your money"). You know... while ignoring the hundreds of years of prior oppression that built this system in the first place, all the culture we've stolen in the process of it all (the hooded blues man, etc.), all the nefarious shit we're currently doing in the background (ignore the riots), and just stay in THIS box. This is who you are. This is America. These powers-that-be are who Glover, and various people of ALL races, are running for their lives from in the dark at the end of the Show that most of the video is. With this knowledge, this album should make a lot more sense. Every production choice and lyric, even those of the guests like 21 Savage who's playing a similar character to the video Glover in his feature, should start to come together in your head. And just watch; future videos will reinforce these themes. I think there's more high concept videos coming which is the main reason there's been such a long time lapse between "This Is America" and the album's release. P.S. The white album cover is analogous to the whitewashed warehouse in "This Is America."

    lol, but CAN YOU MAKE AN ALBUM SIR NEEDLE DROP? CAN YOU DO IT? OH I feel you are really surface level in your approach to this album; I can really tell that you really only listened and didn't feel anything. Based on what Childish Gambino has released previously, you obviously know he is capable of being sonically phenomenal, which begs the question, why the purposeful delivery of something distorted and so far from what you would possibly call "a great album". Perhaps its a reflection of the times and not so much an attempt to please the uncultured ears of certain listeners. Further more, maybe you're just not getting it, which is also okay, and something you could've just said. "Don't take constructive criticism from someone who hasn't constructed anything"

    I'm sorry man but I can't disagree more. 19.10 was easily the best track on the record. Why Time has so many more streams confuses me greatly. Like yea I get maybe the lyrics have more meaning because he's talking about the world but the overall groove and danciness of 19.10 is something you can't call "bad". I think you gotta take music and songs as a whole, when you start pulling them apart piece by piece you lose the important aspect. Sure the drums may sound wonky, sure the synths are not ordinary, but when you piece that shit together.... damn. Nothing against you.

    This whole album feels like what glover made for fun on his spare time and decided to release to help distract/comfort people during the dreaded co-19 situation imo. Even the album cover is unfinished. If this were a drawn piece of art...its as if he released a bunch of conceptual sketches instead of a refined or gallert ready piece of art.

    I think more of the reason he had feels like summer instead of this is America on it Cz even for me it’s way better song But it’s also because he goes deeper in on it with so much depth and lil details it’s truly a master piece And that’s kinda way he’s been he’s always had this very descriptive and hidden message things in both music and videos

    I love Donald Glover a lot. Before he was acting, I watched his stand up and listened to his first two albums. Then he did acting and I loved it just as much. Awaken your Love is amazing and his 2018 singles were bops. But Jesus man this album is wack. I agree with Anthony here, it really needs a redo.
