User Album Review
The album’s title track, “Deadroses,” is the star of the album. The production here is top-notch—simultaneously ballad-like, dance inducing and hip-hop and EDM influenced. Blackbear’s writing is also at its best here, with simple and smooth, but emotional and thought provoking lyrics.
For Blackbear fans, Deadroses is the full-length album they’ve been waiting for. But for first-time listeners, this album is an introduction to Blackbear’s craft. Aside from Blackbear’s vocals, there is just enough of his own production work to gather an idea of his overall sound. Blackbear’s songwriting skills are front-and-center with Deadroses—an album where the lyrics are truly the star. coogradio.com
