2) Strange Fruition - Soundtrakk on the beat! Great intro to the album, verses are on point. Can't say I'm a fan of the hook though.
3) ITAL - This became my favorite song on the album after the first time hearing it. Also "Ain't no manhood in no bang bang" <-- I see what you did there, ha!
4) Around My Way - I actually think this is a great resurrection of the classic. If there was anyone to revive it, it's Lu, and he did it right.
5) Audubon Ballroom - "..Turn the glass ceiling to a glass floor..Make a trampoline out of trapdoor.." <-- That is fucking dope to me. Think about it. I basically preach that to anyone and everyone I know. I see way too many people that accept glass ceilings as their limit and never even attempt to break through it (or to make it into a glass floor, ha!). Solid song.
6) Bitch Bad - I don't even have to go in about Bitch Bad. I fucking loved this record since the first time I heard it and the video is INCREDIBLE. Also one of the realest records I've heard in a good minute.
7) Lamborghini Angels - The dope part about this record is the fact that Lu draws out his lyrics in your head…if that makes sense. Definitely my top 3 favorite on the album.
8) Put Em Up - Lu definitely put the boxing gloves on for this record. You might have to repeat this one a few times before you catch everything. I truthfully wish that more songs on the album would've been like this one.
9) Heart Donor - Not feeling this one at all. I don't know what it is, but just not feeling it.
10) How Dare You - Same as Heart Donor, not feeling it. I do like it better of the two though.
11) Battle Scars - First and foremost, who the fuck still blocks out videos on youtube based on the country you live in? The only reason it took me a good minute to hear this song is because it was only available on youtube if you lived in Australia and I really didn't feel like looking for it at the time. Come on now, it's 2012, cut the gate bullshit. Second, great single. My only thing with this song is that it sounds more like a Guy Sebastian song featuring Lu (which it is, right?). Upvotes!
12) Brave Heart - THE RUNNERS!!! Definitely a great combo. This record immediately jumped on the top of my list of favorite records on the album.
13) Form Follows Function - TIME. OUT. Rewind, yo get RapGenius on the line. Crop circles around the rap game. Now if only we can get a better mix of this…
14) Cold War - This song actually gives me chills. Very emotional. I actually had a chance to meet Esco while I was out in NY for the Stepping Laser tour with S-Preme, definitely was a great guy. :( #ripESCO
15) Unforgiveable Youth - Imagery, imagery, imagery. Again, Lu uses your brain as a canvas and paints pictures in your head while giving you a quick history lesson.
16) Hood Now - This is a GREAT outro track.
Overall, I definitely liked the album. If I had to rate it, it gets 4 thumbs up out of 5 (just pretend I have 4 thumbs). Lu definitely delivered with this album and so:
