A Review on What a Time to be Alive

After two months of listening to Drake's album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive, I have been able to thoroughly judge it. Personally, I think this album is garbage. This really is a Future album with Drake as the featured. It is a shame that the far superior artist, Drake, does not get more time in this album. Almost all of the songs are dominated by the garbage we call Future. Listening to what Future is saying on this album is a challenge. I am not sure if he is purposely trying to mumble, but whatever he is doing is not working. It is sad to hear Future drag Drake down, in what was supposed to be Drake's best year so far in music. After having an outstanding number of great songs in If Your Reading This it's Too Late, and great singles in, Hotline Bling, Right Hand, and Back to Back, it is a shame to hear Drake's amazing music joined by this terrible album. That said, there are some not terrible songs on this album. 30 for 30 Freestyle is good only because Future isn't in it, and while hugely overrated, Jumpman isn't bad. A hidden gem is easily Big Rings. This song is exciting and fun until around the 2 minute mark, when Future joins in. Other than those three songs though, the album is a sad excuse for music.
