    However he chooses to create his albums, both Logic's talent as an emcee and his insightfulness can't be denied.

    Keeping track of whether Logic's writing from his own or someone else's vantage can be a challenge, but one doesn't need to be that familiar with his work to realize that this contains some of his most personal rhymes.

    Complete with unbridled lyricism, top-notch production and conceptual brilliance to tie it all together, Everybody is a hallmark release that further solidifies Logic solid standing in hip-hop.

    Hip Hop’s gatekeepers will say that timing and the repetitive nature of Logic’s lyrics hurts Everybody but for Logic’s younger core fan base, especially those going through struggles of their own, his latest work will be the catharsis to keep them from plunging off the deep end.

    Aside from its more sociopolitical shortcomings, Everybody refuses to stop and evaluate why it exists in the first place. A lot has been made of Logic’s technical skill, but it can’t really be considered proficiency if it isn’t efficient.

    “Amiable” is sort of the operant word for Everybody, which, like Joey Badass’ All-Amerikkan Bada$$, strives to create a trenchant pop-rap polemic for the Trump era, but unlike that record—or any other record ever, for that matter—frequently gets lost in minutes-long spoken-word segues in which Neil DeGrasse Tyson speaks as a benevolent god about the nature of self-worth.

    In general, the album feels like a grab-bag of 'button issues', others' ideas, and content truly desperate to bear high-minded importance, but proves little more than Logic has clearly heard some Kendrick.

The production, lyrics, and story are top notch, and while much of the focus is on Logic being bi-racial, a lot of it is also universal, wishing to help people and end hate. And his talks about race are fascinating and ring true to me. He has a lot to say here, and while I completely understand the divide that this album brings, I personally believed that this album is a fantastic work of art in every possibly way. Expand

    Everybody is not like any other rap album, except for My Dark Twisted Fantasy - shout out to Timothy Golden's review - or other Logic albums.Everybody is not like any other rap album, except for My Dark Twisted Fantasy - shout out to Timothy Golden's review - or other Logic albums. The music and production is reminiscent of the production on MDTF because of it's extremely high-quality, amazing, and just plain great-sounding. "Hallelujah" has utterly amazing music that blows me away, the beat and hook on "America" is killer and addictive, and "Mos Definitly" has amazing music. The chorus on "Confess" is fantastic in terms of production and musical quality. "1-800" has powerful music and lyrics, and "Anziety" and "Black" sound plain great. The music on Everybody just sounds plain amazing; painstakingly created and nearly perfect.

    Another big plus on Everybody is Logic's rapping. Logic raps (and occasionally sings) very well on this album and absolutely kills it on the title track and "Killing Spree."

    The lyrics on this album actually say something, and preach solid, meaningful messages for the most part. There are a few missteps, however, specifically on the songs "America" and the final song. "America" has some extremely false lyrics and claims about Trump and Bush, calling them horrible people and racists. The final song is annoyingly and frustratingly repetitive, but the ending is one of Everybody's best moments. The delivery and lyrics at the last minute and a half of the final song are incredible.

    Everybody is as finely-crafted and stunning as it's album cover, and even more impressive and enjoyable. Everybody is a musical masterpiece and actually has some real lyrics substance, but does have a few errors. Still, it's a great rap album. It's a 9.

    Far from perfect but still better than most. I would say if you are not the intended audience for songs like Anziety, 1-800 etc. it can feel aFar from perfect but still better than most. I would say if you are not the intended audience for songs like Anziety, 1-800 etc. it can feel a little odd listening to it, and could be why some dislike those songs. However, if you relate to the topic the songs are very powerful. However, like Joey Bada$$, Logic celebrates his black heritage and culture, and points out issues but forgets to come up with solutions or discuss it more in depth. The concept itself is grandiose and very mindbending, but Logic did not push it through as well. He could have developed the story more in my opinion, and made some of the dialogue a little less overt and more subtle to make it seem less "corny" or like you are being spoonfed. The Incredible True Story developed and told the story much more effectively, but that is besides the point. Logic should have taken up J. Cole's advice in "AfricAryan" and dropped the "black and white sh--", and included less about him, and more about others. We know his story, and bringing it up again is a little redundant.

    That being said, Logic puts in a lot more thought into his albums that most, and I commend him on his ambitions. Few are willing to take risks, and here he took a big risk, that depending on who you are, will be miscalculated or perfect.
