HOLLYWOOD—Mac Miller’s second studio album debuted on Tuesday, June 18. He is a rapper from
Pennsylvania who is signed to rostrum records who also manage Wiz Khalifa.
Miller’s second solo project “Watching Movies With The Sound Off” starts off with the first song the “Star Room” with a nostalgic eerie tone with his voice distorted. He talks about the struggle of being a star and trying to cope with stardom. The album continues to “Avian” also an intimate song featuring pianos and drums. “I’m Not Real” featuring Odd Futures lyricist Earl Sweatshirt and Vinny Radio, a song that kind of just flows by and Mac Miller’s same flow makes it uneventful. “S.D.S.” the fifth track off the album is much more lively and allows the artist to let loose.
One of the stand out’s off the album is “Matches” featuring black hippy’s Ab Soul. “I Am Who Am (Killin’ Time)” is also a good song in which Miller establishes a flow and one can feel the truth behind his rhymes. “Objects In The Mirror” is a love song in which he talks about moving on. “Red Dot Music” featuring Action Bronson is one of the more lyrical and classic hip-hop sounding tracks on the album. “Watching Movies” is much more modern and has a pop feel to it.
“Suplexes Inside Of Complexes And Duplexes” is one of the more impressive songs lyrically and musically. It features Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica, the master lyricist. “Remember” is a sad song in which he remembers a friend that has passed away. Though the album isn’t anything revolutionary or unique it does assert Mac Miller as one of the better up & coming rap artists of today as he makes significant strides in his music since his first album.
