Jan 25, 2016The reason for this broad interest is his ability to aptly infuse various musical styles under the R&B umbrella. Moreover, his ability to make uptempo soul without losing his ability to invoke a response more typical of downtempo sounds is particularly impressive.

Scope and influence are on display and while wide-ranging, never give the album a sense of attention-deficit disorder: it all flows like a single thought.
The most out of place track on the album is probably Silicon Valley; while the song is just as catchy, well-produced and layered it is more lyrically juvenile and overtly misogynistic than the other offerings.… Expand

Anyone like me that heard Anderson Paak's last album Venice should have seen that something amazing like this was coming from Anderson .Paak. Although I didn't love Venice, I did say he had a lot of potential and that potential blossoms with this new album, which despite being an hour long is very cohesive; one of the many reasons it can be compared to Kendrick Lamar's last LP. The album is full of really tight grooves and some really funky bass lines that help drive the tracks forward and with his soulful and unique sounding vocals over the top the tracks become magnificent. Perhaps what's most impressive about this album is its features. Why? Because they're few and far between. Paak could have easily made the mistake of rushing into the studio with as many artists as he could as I'm sure he's eager to now that he has a newfound fame but he keeps the amount of features low and when they do turn up they don't outshine him in any way (they'd find it hard to if they tried.) They simply blend into the song as necessary. This is probably best demonstrated by Schoolboy Q on 'Am I Wrong' who I'm sure more than a few people will not recognise because of his flow and chilled delivery. Aside from a couple ok tracks here and there Malibu is great and I was surprised I liked this album as much as I did because there are very few R&B albums I love, old or modern. He can only go up from here.
