We have waited a long time for Travis Scott to release his highly anticipated album Astroworld. And with Birds being so disappointing, it has only made the anticipation levels higher and the wait seem longer. It’s difficult for me personally to not make comparisons between Rodeo and this album, partly because Rodeo is one of my all time favourite albums and also because there was just so much hype for Astroworld which included how incredible it is and how similar to Rodeo it is. So let me just say this now, Astroworld is not as good as Rodeo on any level imo. But that doesn’t mean that Astroworld is bad at all, it just doesn’t reach the levels that Trav set so high back when Rodeo dropped. Astroworld is a good album with some great moments that build on what makes Travis’ music so great. The awesome production and samples which are great but not groundbreaking for the most part, but some of the tracks towards the end of the album do sound like generic trap songs which is disappointing because we know Trav is better than that. The guest features are great and diverse that support Travis well. One thing that I have noticed throughout this album is that Trav has improved lyrically which is a nice change from his previous albums. I also don’t get the hate with Butterfly Effect being on this album? It’s a good song. There are some forgettable tracks on Astroworld but the good tracks definitely outnumber the not so good ones. Overall this is a step in the right direction for Trav to get back to his best, but not every swing is a hit on Astroworld. P.S. the album cover is disappointing and the fact that all the song titles are capitalised is annoying. Peace.
