    The singing and melodies are massaged with a care unheard in the prior Drake discography; this album flows as improbably as The Life of Pablo, with more assured lyrics and smoother sequencing, to offset the lack of a certifiable genius at the helm.

    Drake’s consistent use of global beats and international artists carry the bulk of the weight throughout More Life. Elements of grime and British street culture, along with trap, Caribbean dancehall and Afrobeat give a warmth and freshness that keeps the mood brisk.

    A nuanced collection of 22 new songs that recall various stages of Drake’s own development, as well as a tour of other styles and artists that he’s partial to. It is both craven and elegant.

    He allows the various sounds, guest features and flavours of the production, which he and his crew adopted from all over the world, to steal the show.

    While fans and critics argue over whether or not he’s one of the greatest MCs of his generation, let alone among the greatest of all-time, Drake continues to prove his worth as an elite talent with More Life, another blockbuster from rap’s golden child with the midas touch.

    Ultimately, More Life does a terrific job creating a mood with its dancehall-flecked, atmospheric production (handled most impressively by the likes of Nineteen85 and Frank Dukes), and it certainly points to a fascinating fork in the road moment for the world’s biggest rapper.

    More Life is another overly serious, musically uninteresting effort.

    Drake shows us different styles and genres performed excellently.
    More Life sounds pretty much amazing, doesn't seems overextended like Views

    More Life sounds pretty much amazing, doesn't seems overextended like Views did. Lyrics are little bit simple, but if you wanna listen to good sounding music, More Life is for you.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. "More life" the most diverse project, was a good playlist but at the same time it wasn't for many. More life gives us a more vocal Drake, where he gets personal in songs like "Lose you", "Can't have everything", and "Do not Disturb". Drake gave us more tropical, island type vibes throughout the playlist.
    It's (in my opinion) the most interesting work Drake ever did. He gave us a playlist we can relate to and gave us the (old) Drake that we knew from "Best I've ever had" to "Take Care". Hopefully Drake gives us a better mixtape, album, or playlist in 2018.

    It is this feeling of being in the lower New York, watching the train pass in front of house in Brooklyn with the estuary to the maximum.
