    Save a few moments of "over-rapping," his pen is sharp and succinct, void of dull or filler moments. [Dec/Jan 2016, p.90]

    This is the album where it all changed, as the one they call Young Sinatra comes into his own and proves his nearly perfect debut was no isolated fluke.

    There's enough variation in energy and production to keep the listener engaged throughout, and several times there are sudden drops into another beat entirely in the middle of a song.

    The Incredible True Story is Logic's best work yet, but there's still work to be done bridging the gulf between his ambition and his ability.

    The Incredible True Story is both the overt and organic progression of an accomplished emcee maneuvering in his comfort zone past potential pitfalls.

    With the creative confidence to go with his considerable skills and heart, Logic crafts some polished and appealing material.... Overall, a step up for the sophomore.

    The Incredible True Story is a pleasant voyage to Paradise orchestrated by an artist who’s earned the approval of legends from Rick Rubin to Big Daddy Kane. Logic has the tools to create music that has longevity, but has yet to unlock the characteristics that truly set him apart.

I love concept albums anyway and this one is brilliant. The tracks are faultless (I like all of them but Paradise and Run It are top 2) and the backdrop story is a great idea that provides some welcome respite in between Logic's insanely fast spitting. I actually like the album it that much that I never skip any of the skits. What is also impressive is how most of Logic's bars tie back in with the overall space concept. You can tell he put a lot of thought into this and it pays off. Expand

    The Incredible true story just shows how good Logic is and how better he is every time. The one notice thing off this album is how focusedThe Incredible true story just shows how good Logic is and how better he is every time. The one notice thing off this album is how focused Logic is and how different this album is from other rap albums. The Incredible True Story is very good, but also shows that Logic still has a lot of work to do to get to the top.The album starts off with a skit contact, which is interesting because Logic's skit's are very different from other artists infact the whole blend of Tracks and skits because the Album felt like a lucid story about time travel with built in references about life which works beautifully. Then album then goes on with great tracks like fade away, Upgrade and Like Woah(Best song of the album). Then there were tracks like Young Jesus(feat Big Lenbo), Innermission(feat Lucy Rose) and I Am the greatest which were good tracks but didn't have the same high tempo as the first few songs. The Album gets exciting again with the Awesome song Lord will'in the suffers a dip in tempo again with tracks like City of Stars(too long), Stainless(feat Dria), Paradise( feat Jesse Boykins III) and Never Been which were again gooods tracks, but weren't as great as some songs in this album. The Album then finishes off with great tracks like Run it and the Sentimental skit/song The Incredible true story(great message by tbe way). The best songs were Fade away, Like Woah, Lord will'in and Incredible True Story. There are no bad or disappointing tracks cause ITS LOGIC, just that city of stars was a bit long and Innermission wasn't as good as the other tracks but an okay song. Features were good but some were rather unnoticeable Incredible True Story is good whether your a fan or not of logic I recommend it. Great Lyrics from logic as always, Good production, fun story (Babel was my favourite skit) and shows Logic's impressive growth. Despite the album's tempo falling at times and this Album not better than Under Pressure, Incredible true story was one hell of a ride. Expand

His formula is basicallyEven though there are some gems on here, Logic is STILL a biter and is profiting off of work that he didn't do. His formula is basically "Hmm... should I sound like Drake, J. Cole, or Kendrick on this track?" and then he talks **** about people who call him a biter. Dude, if THAT many people are calling you a biter, you're a biter. Majority decides on that, quit being so full of yourself and start making more original music.

    It's unfortunate because songs like "City Of Stars" and "Young Jesus" are legitimately good songs that capture my attention. Sure, they sound like songs that other artists have done ("City Of Stars" sounds like a Kanye joint, "Young Jesus" sounds like Wu-Tang) but Logic is putting his own spin on it. That's what he should be doing on every song!

    That about sums it up.
