  • Summary: The latest album for the hip-hop artist/producer is actually not a soundtrack, but songs about his relationship with hip-hop.

  1. Overall, And I Love H.E.R. is as good of a conceptual album as hip-hop has ever seen.
  2. Spaced over 17 tracks and 70 minutes, it's a rich listen, demanding headphones but rewarding the investment.
  3. It may be hell for him, but it’s compelling listening for anyone smart enough to shitcan the Kanye comparisons long enough to sit down and give this record the attention it deserves.
  4. Swain seems eminently capable of empathy, but most of his time is spent chewing on deeply personal concerns, with the result being that the record can feel a bit hermetic at times. Lucky for him, then, that his personality is sufficiently engaging and his music sufficiently buoyant that we don't mind following him down his private rabbit holes.

    Definitely not perfect, but great conceptually, and Danny! yet again delivers a great album with great tunes and surprisingly good emceeing.
