After a hiatus of being farely quiet, Bryson Tiller has decided to drop his sophmore album True to Self. Bryson blew up out of nowhere in late 2015, and quickly dropped his debut project T R A P S O U L, to critical acclaim. After going ghost for a while I was excited to get new music from Bryson. Did he suffer from the sophmore slump or did Bryson deliver another good project with True to Self?
True to Self feels like an extention to T R A P S O U L. Bryson vocals have never been amazing but they do get the job done on this album, coupled with spacey, soulful-esqe production. I wasn’t disapointed with this project, but I did find myself thinking he could showcase more and give us something different. This album is filled with more of the same subject matter from his previous album. Bryson is in pocket this entire album and no pun intened stays true to self, building on what he established in T R A P S O U L.
I enjoyed this project, but I wish there was more variety in this album. I am under the assumption Bryson felt that what isn’t broke don’t fix it. Which is fine, but I wish he would have tried some different sounds, especially being that this album is 19 tracks long. I have little to no problems with this album, while I did enjoy it I do wish it was shorter. I also wish he could have switched up the sound a little bit. All of that aside I got everything that I expected and I was happy with that. This is a good album and I can’t wait for what Bryson has in store next.
How did you like True to Self? Did you love it ? Did you hate it? Let me know what you think. Thank you and I hope everyone is being safe this summer.
