iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, Spotify, etc.
Physical CD orders will be available but for an extra cost. I gotta pay to ship it, yo.

This album right here is a culmination of about two years hard work. I wrote some of the songs a year and a half ago and only now am I confident I can get them across effectively. Most of this was made this summer. I took all the advice/critique/feedback everyone has ever given me and crafted, what I think, is a pretty damn solid album. Demaz and I went almost 50/50 on the production for this, so the overall sound is pretty consistent. Definitely sounds like an album than a mixtape! The only thing I ask is that when it drops, you give it a listen (buy it, download from the free mediafire link, whatever) and just feel the vibe, nahimean? Not to sound cliche but this project is my heart and soul. Literal blood (true story), sweat and tears went into this. What I'm trying to get at is: peep this!! :y:

I'll also be offering some discount codes for Bandcamp purchases.
I'll also upload the album to mediafire for free, but with mp3s so the quality won't be as good as if you buy it (I gotta encourage sales but at the same time TR will be able to listen for free. Though I would appreciate any support! The profit I get will go towards better recording equipment for my new house in Alaska.)

I also might be doing a live stream on something like Twitch.tv a few hours before it drops that night. Kinda just put the webcam on, hit play and just give you guys a little preview of what's to come. Something like a Budden stream or something. I'll work it out. :smoking:

Hey Ax, I just recorded for the track you sent for it. Are those samples royalty free or whatever? I'd like to use this for my iTunes bonus edition.

Well, after a few listens and digesting, this is my spoiler free review of Eedee's debut album. I'll post a track by track review when it drops.

Going Forward:

Eedee's taken a lot of time to perfect this one. The saying "quality over quantity" rings true when thinking of this album. While its not perfect, it's the perfect sound for Eedee.

Without giving too much away, I will say this. The production is fantastic through the album. Mat and Eedee did a great job of keeping it sonically consistent and pleasing. Lots of great melodies and catchy sounds coming from the beats. It's also a break away from some of the poppy sounding beats Eedee has graced us with recently.

The hooks are outstanding. There's some really, really catchy shit on here for the hook. Mirage is a stand out on that front. Perfect blend of catchy yet meaningful.

The lyricism is a huge step in the right direction. Tighter lyrics allow for a better all around verse. The direction is clear through all songs, with little to no detour and an abundance of clarity in story telling. The rhymes may not be as packed in some areas, but each lyric is even more impactful because of this.

Flow is heaps better. This is something I've personally been trying to help Eedee with, though he's pretty much got it on his own. It's unique and interesting, often taking a few listens to fully catch all the subtle nuances.

I didn't think Eedee was capable of making music like this. Easily his best musical piece to date, and a solid album on general. One I find myself repeating on my own accord quite often. I'd give it a 7.3/10. Not quite perfect, but a great leap forward into what should be a promising musical career.
