Review

This commercial mixtape was released to appease listeners awaiting the proper follow-up to Aquarius. Due to the seduction-oriented lyrical matter and dominance of leisurely tempos, its title could easily be taken as a euphemism. Indeed, any vehicular travel soundtracked by these wispy slow jams couldn't possibly exceed 25 m.p.h. A moonlit setting is established from the beginning and never quite reaches dawn, highlighted by "Lucid Dreaming," "Sacrifices," "Soul Glitch," and "Ride of Your Life," all intoxicated ballads laced with attitude, desire, and subtle hooks. Nothing here has the upbeat pop appeal of "2 On" or any of the unincluded post-Aquarius singles, but this is clearly designed for a different purpose. ~ Andy Kellman
