    Whilst the initial surprise felt on the original ‘Saturation’ may have subsided, the erratic excitement and experimentation on that album has been executed more confidently on each subsequent chapter. The LA group are everything progressive rap music should be; forward thinking, energetic and perhaps most importantly, exciting.

    Saturation III is the shortest, hookiest, and best, though, for no better reason than they are cooking by now, pithily commenting on police brutality, drug addiction, and receiving head.

    This is Brockhampton at their funkiest and most playful, but it’s also Brockhampton at their finest.

    What unites them through the funk of “Zipper”, the smooth, slightly cheesy pop of “Hottie” and the sudden bursts of metallic dissonance on “Sister/Nation” is a sense of hiphop starting over, moving beyond iconography and iconoclasm into a world where they have absolute freedom to make shit up as they go along.

    On Saturation III, the collective’s objective begins to come into focus. They still paint in broad strokes and their songs sometimes still lack continuity, but they’re truly moving as a unit now, and the star power is all but obvious.

    Like its predecessors, the album is hit or miss, but the batting average remains uncommonly high for a project like this.

    Saturation III is for the fans: their most abstract, their most experimental, and by far their weirdest.

    This is the best Saturation IMO, Every member contributes great verses every on every track and this Saturation also has the best productionThis is the best Saturation IMO, Every member contributes great verses every on every track and this Saturation also has the best production between the 3 with a more aggressive and experimental tone. The only complaint i have on this album is that Ameer does not change his flow at all, but this could be applied between all 3 Saturation's.

    Best Songs: ZIPPER,JOHNNY,LIQUID,HOTTIE,SISTER/NATION,TEAM.

    Personally for me Saturation I > S III > S II.
    This is the most POP of all three, it's very different than the first two (less bangers and more singing). Only thing that needed was a better ending by bearface.
    Overall the band shows a lot of synergy and chemistry. It rivals and outdoes at times other groups like the pro era. I look forward to this band's next projects

    More of the same by Brockhampton. Whether or not that's a good thing depends on how you felt about the first Saturation. While there's nothingMore of the same by Brockhampton. Whether or not that's a good thing depends on how you felt about the first Saturation. While there's nothing truly mind-blowing or innovative. These are still a decent collection of songs. Boogie is easily the best song the group has made period. Listen to Saturations in order, see if this album is for you. I personally, am not too impressed. Expand
