    PND has been an enigma for a while, and P3 feels ahead of its time. Still, it’s likable enough in the present that it will keep him in the public consciousness for years to come.

    The album helps prove he’s a lot more than just Drake’s patois advisor. Clothes that don’t quite fit his boss feel effortlessly tailored to Brathwaite.

    Melodic shifts that initially go unnoticed reveal themselves to be vital upon repeat listens.

    The picture here is less of a cad than of a man wrestling with his feelings in an overfamiliar (if wildly successful) sonic bubble. PartyNextDoor is standing out in a crowded market, not so much for his sound, but for his circumstances.

    The distance between men and women--emotional and physical--is at the core of many of these songs, yet the album manages to be the most playful PARTYNEXTDOOR record to date.

    That ["Only U"] and a couple other exceptions aside, the hour-plus set offers more variations on the narcotic, boast-filled slow jams for which Brathwaite and his fellow OVO Sound artists are known.

    While PND's production is typically on point, his songwriting and vocal skills are still evolving.

    fr album is straight depressing, no energy, no hype beats, and the odd thrown in crappy dancehall track doesnt provide any good benefit.
