Ugh, I guess I’m reviewing Culture II now. Culture II is the third studio album from the already legendary Atlanta trap group, Migos. Migos is the pairing of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff, and they have made some pretty incredible trap music in the past. Unfortunately, they fall flat on this album. Instead of doing what they did on Culture I, where they really focused on each song, and really tried to make it better, in this album they took a quantity over quality approach, and it didn’t work out so well for them. This album is almost two hours long, and it’s just two and a half hours of the same song, over and over and over. I’m sure you can get enjoyment out of this album if you pick out two or three songs to listen to, but with the sheer amount of music on this album, it’s gonna be like finding a needle in a haystack. I don’t hate trap music at all, it’s really fun to listen to passively, or with people around, but I don’t think that the trap music on this album really holds up to scrutiny. All of the beats sound the same, just some instrument, be it a piano, saxophone, trumpet, etc... with rattling 808’s and rolling hi-hats. Insert lazily written bars full of repetition and make sure it’s all in triplets, and that’s basically the whole album.
Four Standout Tracks:
Walk it Talk it
Top Down on da Nawf
There are definitely some fun songs on here, but it was such a process to wade through all the crap to find them, that I don’t really know why you would want to listen to all 24 tracks in a row. I’m gonna give this a 5.0/10
