As soon as the intro’s instrumental dropped I had a feeling in my gut that reviewing Real was going to be enjoyable (as not all album reviews are) and proceeded to let the music take over my senses. The intro alone presents what will be the aura of most of the album; filled with beats that are reminiscent of the types A$AP Rocky likes to spit on for songs like “Wassup” or similar to fellow Canadian Drake’s chill sound that causes one to descend into a pensive mood rather than amping you up for a party. As for lyrical influence, I heard a bit of Kendrick Lamar in the beginning with a splash of spoken-word style of spitting.
The album stands up to it’s name because the songs and artists deliver believable messages about their struggle while allowing listeners to escape from reality with their catchy hooks and dreamy atmosphere present throughout it’s entirety.
All in all, Real offers music lovers a new group to pay attention to and pay attention you must. It looks like Big Dreams will be doing big things in the near future!
