To be honest it's actually more of a "classical" album. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, because shockingly he's selling it through iTunes instead of giving it away online as per usual—I don't think I would drop ten bucks on it even if I had that much money in my checking account. From the previews on iTunes—which more sensibly files it under "new age"—it sounds like Lil B loaded up some strings and pads in a synth program, did about a hundred bong rips, and just let the music flow out of him, despite the fact that he maybe doesn't technically "know" how to play the keyboard. I wouldn't be at all surprised if that were exactly how the record got made.
But while the music might not do that much for me, the song titles do very, very much for me, combining Lil B's immense self-obsession, his goal to help his fans become self-actualized humans who can help bring peace to the world, and some general New Age portentousness. A selection:
"Lost in the Sky of Love"
"Tribute to Lil B" *
"I Made the Right Choice"
"Lessons From the Wind"
"Exhale With Love in Your Chest"
"At the Zoo With Mom" **
"What Came First Are We Alive" ***
* Of course.
** Possibly the best title of the bunch?
*** Whoops, no, this is the best. I want to put these words on a T-shirt and think about them all day long.
