Earl Sweatshirt – FEET OF CLAY (REVIEW/REACTION)

Earl Sweatshirt – FEET OF CLAY

Released: 1 November 2019

      Earl Sweatshirt delivers FEET OF CLAY, an aptly-titled album that drags its feet in terms of delivering its lyrics with meaning and tact.

Playing off of Earl’s 2018 effort Some Rap SongsFEET OF CLAY bares the low-fidelity production aesthetic prevalent in SRS as well as MIKE’s Renaissance ManMay God Bless Your Hustle, and more.

At times, FEET OF CLAY plays like technically-sound literature – but at other times it sounds like a jumbled, wordy mess. 7 songs is not nearly enough time to flesh out Earl’s state-of-mind or creative direction on FEET OF CLAY.

★★★: Average-Good; does little to establish the artist or maintain quality.
