Ginger – Brockhampton – 7.8


I’m always happy for a new Brockhampton project. Ginger is their newest release since the boybands first official album Iridescence. Unlike previous releases, Ginger dials Back on the craziness and wackiness we’re used to from Brockhampton. Now we’re seeing the band in a much more thoughtful and raw setting. Ginger starts off strong with a sombre and reflective cut No Halo which has such a cool low-key vibe and a hella catchy hook. Another deep moment is the track Dearly Departed such sees the band address the actions of Ameer and how it’s affected them. I think this melancholic side of Brockhampton is something we saw flashes of in Iridescence, but now it’s become much more prevalent here. And if you’re into that side of the band, then Ginger will be a big hit for you. If you prefer the wilder and more unpredictable side of them, then you probably won’t see Ginger as an improvement on the critically acclaimed Saturation series. I like Ginger, I’m okay with the more mellow side, but for me, I’m one who prefers the party Brockhampton, not the sad Brockhampton. I also think the hooks could have been stronger throughout. But the big highlight for me is the impressive verses.
