    As far as posthumously released albums go, though, the dreary-dreamy “Fighting Demons” aptly shows off Juice’s penchant for disconsolate lyrics and dimly lit but infectious hooks.

    ‘Fighting Demons’ is evidence of a nuanced, complex artist whose legacy is stunning in its richness.

    Fighting Demons embodies Juice WRLD in that way: a flawed project with moments of brilliance that feels uncomfortable to listen to but isn’t ashamed of its naked humanity. And in that aspect, it becomes a balancing act of the man and the artist, melding the two to create a project that’s earnest and authentic — just like Juice WRLD.

    Fighting Demons, his second posthumous album is a tortured but overall grateful memento mori from a talented artist who left us all too soon.

    Themes of struggling to overcome depression and drug dependency surface often on Fighting Demons, making it a heavier collection than the sometimes celebratory memoriam of Legends Never Die. It's not an essential piece of the Juice WRLD story, but it's also not without some solid reminders of his greatness.

    Fighting Demons is too polished to be considered a total flub and its heart is in the right place, but it’s difficult to look at it as anything more than another product falling off a long assembly line powered by dead rappers.

    Ultimately ‘Fighting Demons’ works almost as a tribute record, gathering fragments of his undoubted genius. Whether it’s a true Juice WRLD album, though, is another matter.

    Although not as good as his previous albums, this is still really good. I am not a big fan of the label, they have made many mistakes like scrapping the Outsiders, etc. but I still think they are doing a good job for his 2nd posthumous album, I am still so sad since I couldn't ever meet Juice and we couldn't witness him get to his full potential.

    Juice WRLD Fighting Demons: It’s about time this album came out. Sorry I’ve been gone haven’t felt any inspiration but I’m back so let’sJuice WRLD Fighting Demons: It’s about time this album came out. Sorry I’ve been gone haven’t felt any inspiration but I’m back so let’s review this amazing album. This is one of my new favorite rap albums of all time with some of my favorite songs starting the album with Burn one of the best songs Juice ever recorded, then it’s Already Dead again one of my favorites I’m just going to list my favorites. Until the Plug Comes Back Around, Relocate, From My Window, Not Enough, Feline, Doom and Rockstar in His Prime they are some of my favorites tracks, there are also some tracks that have Eminem and Juice speaking I don’t know what to really say about them. But the most disappointing song was Go Hard all the hype that is was going to be the first single for Party Never Ends and it’s just not very good, the worst song is with Suga from BTS don’t get me wrong the Juice verse fantastic but when Suga comes on it ruins the whole track it’s terrible. Overall for his second posthumously album it’s great just could have done without Go Hard and the Suga verse you could have put Life’s a Dungeon or Billy Idol. Ranking Amazing. Expand

    Two years after his tragic death, Grade A and Interscope decided to release Juice WRLD's fourth (and second posthumous) album "FightingTwo years after his tragic death, Grade A and Interscope decided to release Juice WRLD's fourth (and second posthumous) album "Fighting Demons" – which indisputably has a negative connotation. Commercial intentions aside, Juice takes us on a personal, painful and emotional journey.

    On lonely melodies he addresses depression, anxiety, addiction and the struggle with drugs. Unfortunately, both the lyrics and the production itself are very monotonous, boring and weak. The beats don't stand out at all and are quite lousy. Overall, it's hard to imagine that we would have gotten to hear this music if Juice WRLD was still alive.

    My favorites:
    "Already Dead"
    "Wandered to LA"
    "Feline"

    This is a very polarizing album to cover as Juice Wrld has been unfortunately not with us for 2 years now and is still having music releasedThis is a very polarizing album to cover as Juice Wrld has been unfortunately not with us for 2 years now and is still having music released which to some is seen as controversial. I do think that the production of Juice's latest songs are to put it lightly, absolutely horrendous and flat out lazy. This album still disappointed me though as we got not much to take it. There are a lot of songs but I only seem to enjoy just a few. I really wish this is a close for Juice's music as it's just getting bad. I reccomend Already Dead, Wandered to LA, and Rockstar In His Prime Expand
