    It’s a brutal and lovely album that refines Reservation’s far-flung impulses into a targeted stream of consciousness.

    Back To The Woods is both a consolidation for Haze (they sound like themselves again and there’s clear sonic unity--all the tracks were produced by old friend/collaborator TK Kayembe) and something of a hangover of a record.

    With honesty, fiery cadence and a flow more commonly heard on a shock jock or rock star, Haze holds nothing back. Free from features, the listener can fully follow along with Haze’s journey uninterrupted.

    A gifted singer, Haze can also create delicate beauty--Moonrise Kingdom, The Woods – but she’s still at her best when she takes aim and fires.

    In an artist exploring her brand new self pairing with a producer doing his best to pair up beats with her wild new imagery, this one never quite meshes, but is yet still impressive enough to sit back and marvel at the emotive and lyrical force that Angel Haze is evolving into.

This is a masterful blend of singing and rap, combining multiple genres at once and creating sounds that are all so different yet they still manage to create a cohesive listening experience. Even the jarring sounds are equally beautiful. My favourite tracks are Moonrise Kingdom, Bruises, On Fire, and The Wolves. Expand

    Angel Haze is one of the most underrated female rappers. It seems that just for a woman get audience, she needs to be hyper sexualized orAngel Haze is one of the most underrated female rappers. It seems that just for a woman get audience, she needs to be hyper sexualized or objectified, so artists like her stand in the background. Back to the Woods is organic, soulful. It's a masterpiece that didn't got the recognition and attention it deserves. My favorite tracks are Impossible, The Eulogy and Babe Ruthless. Expand
