Mike Dreams wrote a pretty dope review of Lasers for Refined Hype. Check it out below:
Cutting to the chase, before I even begin breaking down each song, let me just say my opinion overall on the album. I consider this album to be a triumph and a win for Mr. Wasalu Jaco. It was a bittersweet win, and a gruesome journey, but a win nevertheless.If you’re a true supporter of him as an artist and a person, it should be a win for you as well. I also cannot respect you if you call yourself a true fan, but you say this album SUCKS. SUCKS is a very strong word, and I'm quite sure your sentiments are misguided in your critique. I'll elaborate on that later.What are the main oppositions I’ve been hearing about the album from people who have heard it? Of course, it’s the expected “this is not our classic Lupe”, and “the beats are too pop” and even the highly ludicrous “he sold out” comments.It pains me to read this, because overall, the album is not bad at all. It's NOT "Food & Liquor" or "The Cool" by any means, but it's a Lupe album. What does that mean? That means it's still going to be a pretty incredible piece of listening material, contrary to everything else.
