2016 has been OK. Kendrick, Open Mike Eagle, Kanye, Denzel Curry is about it for me. Q and YG were pretty good.

Not saying 2015 was better when there's still half the year to go, but definitely no TPABs yet.

Coloring Book wasn't really my thing. Sounds like the kind of rap that would play at a church youth group.

At least Chance has his own lane and he's not trying to be Drake or Kendrick like everyone else.

As an atheist the only track that gets close to that for me is "How Great" but then it's got J Elec and it's redeemed.

Coloring Book is miles away the most satisfying album I've heard from 2016 thus far.

?? I find it odd that music about god would even bother an atheist, unless you're an arsehole atheist like Richard Dawkins or something. So much of my favourite music has a deep connection to religion - U2, Sufjan, a great deal of hip-hop. I'm an atheist myself and I find it utterly beautiful and uplifting; Ultralight Beam is one of the best songs of recent years and I find it moving despite being an atheist. I find this really odd. Weird.

As for Colouring Book I love All We Got, No Problem, Same Drugs, All Night, Finish Line/Drown and Blessings. The rest I can take or leave (aside from Mixtape, which suuuuucks). I like Acid Rap more.

not at all, it's just a very recurring musical theme that i don't identify with. i'm not bothered by it. it just doesn't incite any emotion, and it's pretty frequent, so as the album goes along i find myself getting tired of it. it's no different than a hillbilly country album, as a city kid i could appreciate the music but ultimately i wouldn't identify with it as much, and get tired of hearing farm songs quickly enough.



ultralight beam is chance's best verse ever, and my favourite track on the life of pablo, for what it's worth.

i have the same list except swap blessings for summer friends. i like acid rap more too, but chance's raps are technically superior on coloring book. of course they are with a few years' practice.

I'm Christian and find his newer stuff a bit cloying. It all comes down to execution.

Most people don't even notice that Good Kid Maad City is loaded with religious themes. I'm surprised that Kendrick came out of that without receiving more criticism, but it actually drew people in.

cloying! that's the word i was looking for. yes, i find it gets kinda cloying as the album goes along.

gkmc's religious content really only applies to the skits, though. off the top of my head i don't think there is anything explicitly religious/spiritual in the music itself. and in any case those are scenes of a narrative, so they serve a purpose. in chance's case it's more just general "praise god!" stuff, your "church youth group rap" comment fits pretty well for most of the songs.

in any case, i think chance 3 is a really good album. i'm going to listen to it again this weekend for sure. it's just got a vibe i don't really get 100% of the time.

Great performance, highlighted by Chance's verse. I need to listen to this dude more.
