1. Let It Go
The first song of the album starts off with a deep note, with beats backing up bass guitar giving a deep, hard and rusty feel. The tempo increases on his fast, catchy rap, rhyming with the words convincingly to make it a good party number. However, it does strike similarity with Bad meets Evil singer Ryan Montgomery. This dark, fast Rap number marks a good start to his debut album.
2. She Lookin Good
‘She is lookin good’, is a retro style rap number. B-Bless sets the mood by praising and describing about women in a passionate way. The arrangement deserves credit but pitch timing falls short at some places. Could have been better but still the best in the pack.
3. The Found King
The title song of this album, touted to be the best rather turns questionable! Right from the first note the tempo of the song is slow, the rap fluctuates in different pitch and music seems out of sync. While the keyboard gives a larger than life feel to the song, the rap struggles. Though the singer describes his battles in life and finding his lost throne, there is still a missing link between the music and the Rap.
4. What We Call Life
‘What we call life’ is one of those party songs. The music starts off slow and the rap keeping the tempo slow as well. The music and the rap blends really well making it
enjoyable. Ending it short might have just worked for B-Bless.
Album Verdict: Lacks the finish but promising
