But while Paak was comfortable residing in the clearly defined contours of traditional verse-bridge-verse song structures on Malibu, he allows those boundaries to blur and shift here. It was on heavy rotation for me, I must of given it at least a dozen spins, outside of having All in a Daze Work and Wild Imagination, my favourite tracks, on repeat.

I think this album fills a space much more fully, if that makes any more sense.
