    he's a modern composer with at least one amazing story behind one of his best works. mostly it's very, very minimal, endlessly looped stuff that's great for sleeping and writing. i'll tell you that story next week

    Ok, now for the finale (for now), “Look What You’ve Done”. The line “Damn, boo-hoo, sad story, Black American dad story” is unreal. For me it’s all about circumstances and obligation and misunderstandings. Being the only child of the only “good” marriage between the 5 my parents share, puts me in a position of questioning everything. Even though I have all these siblings and while every child will always have a different relationship with his or her parents, there is no one who has a relationship remotely like mine with my dad or mom. My half-siblings probably in some ways rightly and in others entirely uniformed see my father as that “black American dad story”. Hmmm…this may be wayyy too specific/personal/long for lastfm. And I guess this is way more about me than Drake. But, I guess that’s what good music is supposed to do.

    The idea of what is okay and who is okay and according to what standards seems to be something Drake struggles with. How things appear aren’t always how they end up. I guess that’s obvious, but maybe it’s important to be reminded. Regarding your question about “Shot for Me,” I think it might be more about his own regrets and less so some form of dis song about his ex. This whole theme of change that Drake talks about repeatedly is highlighted in “Shot for Me”. He plays with the idea in that he puts the blame on his ex instead of actually dealing with the problem (of how he’s changed) that he admits in other songs. I totally agree with you about the need of another verse after the harmonica in “Doing it Wrong”. It’s so obviously lacking that that it makes the song just seem uneasy; it’s much more like an interlude (which I like—but it probably would benefit from some more substance).

    That line alone sums up why being drunk or high is like so the most appealing. It’s the distance from reality, spent with the realest people. I know Drake gets a lot of shit for talking about how living “the life” is not that great, but I’m oddly attracted to that fact. Drake talks most about the Hollywood lifestyle and how it’s entirely all consuming. Regardless of whether he enjoys it or not, his critique of the lifestyle shows some level of depth. There’s something attractive about a man who knows what’s going on (whether or not he does something to change what he doesn’t like) and doesn’t have a precaution in sharing that. “Over My Dead Body” is by far my favorite song on Take Care. By far. There have been nights where I just listen to it on repeat. Yet again, the opening line is one of the lines I connect most with. “How I’m feeling, it doesn’t matter / Cause you know I’m ok.”

    “I want to witness love, I never seen it close / Yeah, but I guess I gotta find it first / That’s why I’m really going off, fireworks.” I find my connection to this line kinda scary, but I guess that’s why the song has beauty. “The Resistance” is so self-aware that it’s frightening. Drake’s ability to completely see his worries, concerns, flaws, and all in a larger context is something I think I suffer from as well. My self-awareness is so real that I even get on myself for being self-aware. The skill of detachment is no longer a skill, but a hindrance on experiencing real emotion. I think Drake and I potentially both suffer from that. “Up All Night” is dope. And I think that’s kinda the only word I have to describe it. I’m not sure if I think more of the song past Nicki’s verse and the sound. “Show Me a Good Time” starts off with such a truthful line: “I live for the nights I can’t remember, with the people I won’t forget.”

    I think I didn’t give my first response the legitimacy that it deserves. So I too will go into more depth and share with you the connections and meaning I’ve found. But let me first preface my relationship with Drake. Only recently have I truly gotten into Drake. I was the girl that loved to hate him. I instantly however fell in love with Take Care because of the reasons I mentioned in my initial response (production, general sound…), so now that I’ve admitted that I like something Drake does, I’m going back to his older albums. Even though my understanding of Thank Me Later can only be immature at best, the more I think about it, the more there is to love. “Fireworks” does the same kind of thing for me as it does for you. The allusion to love at the end basically describes me.

    take care. i think. more because of the production value and the quality of the album as a whole and as a story. it's way more mature than thank me later. thank me later has maybe better individual songs, but as an entire work of art, i definitely like take care more. how about you? also, we must keep this up, because there is literally nothing i like doing more than talking about music/pop culture.

    v Thursday sucks. House of Balloons is spotty but its highlights are awesome. "Initiation," however, is the probably the best (and certainly the most innovative) thing he's ever done. it achieves something never done before in music, as heavy as that sounds.

    on the weeknd: i love love love the morning. it might actually be one of my favorite songs right now. i'm also into the rest of house of balloons. but i'm not as into thursday. i'm not sure what it is... there is definitely something about the weeknd that is really annoying. and i think thursday is more representative of that quality. maybe i think his like creepy voice needs to be grounded in heavier beats. not sure... but yes the morning is the song i listen to at full volume w headphones on. i was just having a conversation about rozay where we discussed his remarkably brilliant lyrics. i think we came to the conclusion that this was our favorite: ‎"got a letter from the government the other day. i opened it, read it... it said, 'we were hustlers'"

    just starting my second full listen, but so far i'm loving it. i feel like he's starting to deliver on the potential he showed on "Lust for Life." "Marvin's Room," "Cameras," and "Look What You've Done" are my favorites.
