kpmm The environment that The Lasso creates just pushes me to be a better person honestly. The bars are gritty and the sonics are FUCKING insane

I was sold after the second song but Moses Was A Magician made me buy it twice. Favorite track: Moses Was A Magician.

Gavin Hellyer Two very firm favourite artists of mine, and it's good to see The Lasso getting out and about making records with enormously fine collaborators. It completes a great year for E L U C I D as well, given that his mighty Armand Hammer partnership with billy woods has delivered one of the best albums of the year in "Shrines". Favorite track: Sometimes Care Looks Like Leave Me The Fuck Alone (feat. billy woods).

MydriHaze This album is really beautiful: the synergy between deepness and acuity of the lyricisms, the omnipresence of the voices; and the experimental, progressif and psychedelic sound research with smooth instrus, freaky percus, crazy glitches and wide soundscapes; make it unique and f*cking awesome.

I can't choose a track, the whole album rocks.

Jeremy Leaming ELUCID is hot, so a little crooning or rapping about sex, even hetro sex is fine by me. ELUCID is no wanker from Atlanta. Favorite track: Falling Up (feat. Moor Mother).

The Rap Music Plug Podcast Lasso matched ELUCID's mercurial level of creativity and created an album that is truly like none other

Production is wildly layered, and ELUCID is equally layered in his writing

There is a lot of energy on this record that will surely put you in a creative headspace Favorite track: Safehouse (feat. Fielded).
