Nov 17, 2022The album is so fragmented and so determined to forsake easy pleasures, with most of the songs hovering near the 90-second mark, that it comes to suggest a hip-hop version of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention releases from the 1960s. ... For better or worse, The Family may, paradoxically, be Brockhampton’s most honest and adventurous effort since their debut.

One listen in and I’m really blown away by Kevin’s self awareness and ability to work through his complicated feelings about his band, band mates, and the fans that influenced those relationships into compelling and infectious music.
Life is complicated and it’s never felt so obvious than in 35 minutes of music. Kevin recognizes the fans that made this possible, but at the end of the day, it’s for him and it shows here. Can’t name a track it feels like one big song. But the band titled track really says it all. Things don’t happen to way you want them to all the time, but you can make the most out of it anyway.
And for the fans, we can understand more than anyone during this journey. Love this band.… Expand

Some tracks likeThis album consists mostly of unfinished, unpolished tracks. Not to mention the lack of input from anyone else in the band. Some tracks like "Big P&ssy*" and "The ending" had potential but get cut short. I don't understand why they had to make an entire album out of 1 mins long tracks.
If you're going to listen to this album, do yourself a favour and skip any track that doesn't go pass the 2 mins mark. That's pretty much all that album has to offer.… Expand
