    Murs and Fashawn have done what few collaborative albums do: create a complete and cohesive album, that actually lives up to lofty expectations.

    Murs and Fashawn forge an exceptional chemistry on This Generation that more importantly doesn't compromise their stylistic individuality.

    Music this good transcends chronology, so whether you're 85 (what up grandma?), just getting your driver's license or anywhere between, you're all welcome into This Generation.

    An album that's already brimming over with personality thanks to the chemistry between the two rhyme stylists and their ability to bring out the most inventive sides of one another.

    An easy 12-track listen with smart, if not epic, storytelling and a variety of sounds.
  6. 60
    While the highs ("64 Impala", "Slash Gordan") could be higher, the lows aren't actually all that low. As far as full-length rap collabos go, you could do much worse than this.

    The occasional clunker's certainly not enough to take the shine off a solid, consistent album. [Jan 2013, p.110]

    This really was soundtrack to my summer (ok, late summer, or maybe fall lol). Really summer vibin' album, very consistent, just 1 skippableThis really was soundtrack to my summer (ok, late summer, or maybe fall lol). Really summer vibin' album, very consistent, just 1 skippable track, solid beats, great chemistry between Fash & Murs, really good, consistent stuff. Fresh album. Nothin' excellent here, just pure Cali, summer vibin' album... 8/10 easily. Recommended for those from CA or wherever worldwide, jus to bump in their lacs in summer. Hot album! Expand
