I dig the production on it quite a bit.  For his first release and age I think it's pretty amazing.  Vocally when he raps he sounds good but his choruses are a crash chorus.  :( 
I also think he possesses the ability to see trends which is essential for an artist that wants to stay relevant - he has techno-rap on here.   

The album isn't the shit.  It's a decent debut.  I enjoy it and it makes me look forward to his future material that he takes the time rather than the shit that was rushed and released for free ... that is if there will be any.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

I LOVE THIS ALBUM.

Exactly what I expected.

Old school vibe beats with new school lyrical feelings.

This borders with Escape Route for album of the year.

I can't get past his bitch ass whiny vocals when he does a chorus.  I just want to up and smack the kid.

Yeah Charles is one of those rappers where you either dig their voice or absolutely hate it.  Fortunately for me, I dig it.

The hooks are decent, I appreciate he's doing them himself.

The lyrics are above average, he barely cracks the upper echelon of "lyrical rappers" out there today, which is a small minority.  They are relateable too, (for me)

I think what really makes the album good is the limited number of tracks (aka only good songs)  and the mixing/mastering, that "Vinyl" sound he was talking about, it really does sound superb.

4/5 stars.

PS: I forgot about the beats, Charles can flip a MEAN sample..  Don't deny it, shit is classic on some of these productions.

"When I sample, I'm not just doing it to sound good. I'm trying to tell a story. To convey an emotion. If I sampled it, there is a reason I sampled it. I believe that music is based on moments, and that there are some moments that people may have missed back in the day. They may have even missed it a year ago. When I sample, I'm giving the artist their respect, while simultaneously creating something new."

you were digging the beats that much? I think he captured that old school vibe better on his last effort. The second half of this is alot stronger than the first though. Still gotta give it a proper listen in the 'cans, though.

I am digging the beats alot lol.  I liked Pink Lava Lamp alot too, I notice many improvements on here though.  I am listening on headphones btw if that means anything.
