    YSIV--the conclusion of his Young Sinatra series of mixtapes--is his most confident and accomplished release to date, shaking off some of the awkwardness that has long peppered his music.

    Overall, Bobby has bars for days--and days--and as a consistent top to bottom play, YSIV has vibrant energy.

    YSIV succeeds when it forgoes pretentious views on what hip-hop should be and instead focuses on what makes the self-proclaimed Young Sinatra unique. The trio of “Everybody Dies,” “The Return,” and “The Glorious Five” feature the Everybody MC at his most fluid and nimble.

    This is Logic at his best: making music that makes him happy. His comfort zone is infectious. If YSIV doesn't sell you on Logic, nothing will.

    In a way, with all its emphasis on over-achievement and a continuous supply of re-recounted autobiographical content, YSIV can be as mind-numbing as the mumble rap Logic rails against, but the proficiency and fervor are indisputable.

    Logic rhymes in exciting ways, but the meanings can be a little strained.

    Logic’s lyrical prowess continues to get in his way on songs like “The Return,” which sounds like a motivational song made for a late night Nike ad.

    The Fourth and Final Logic Project under the "Young Sinatra" alter ego has landed, even with a few recycled bars YSIV seems to be anotherThe Fourth and Final Logic Project under the "Young Sinatra" alter ego has landed, even with a few recycled bars YSIV seems to be another excellent entry into Logic's excellent Discography. The Album starts off with a continuation of Logic's last Studio Album, with two characters stating that In fact this is not Logic's last album, just the last Young Sinatra project, this transitions to the Track "Thank You." Although the tracks Idea is pretty cool, Thanking the dedicated fans and showing some voicemails the fans sent him. Unfortunately the execution of this track is sub-par as the voicemail section of track is uncomfortably too long. Even with that issue Logic drops a few quick witty bars on a classic boom bap beat. A big highlight for me is "The Glorious Five". The song feels happy, uplifting, and the beat and especially the lyrics feel inspiring. The Hook uses a touch of auto tune but it feels almost heavenly and fits the vibe. If were talking about Inspirational Logic Tracks "The Glorious Five is great, so good I feel like the next Track "One Day" feels a little monotonous and repetitive since everything Logic says on "One Day" seems to be done in a better more sonically pleasing method on "The Glorious Five" The Next track is definitely necessary as it is a absolute banger featuring not one, not two but everyone from the Legendary Wu Tang Clan. This 11 Verse Classic hip-hop is one of my favourite tracks on the album. I could go on for hours about this album, but I'm not and Im gonna say this, Check it out!

(Iridescence, Die Lit, YSIV, KSG, etc.)They either don't know his story, don't care, or did't listen to the album because this is a solid project. It's like they're giving albums scores just to try and appease the public and it's getting pathetic. It's not his best or his worst but it's nice. I haven't heard him spit like this in a minute so I appreciate the delivery. The album is truly in the 7.5 range but I rounded up. From the first song to the end, Logis is telling the story of Logic through story telling and showing the emotions he felt in those stories. Last Call is one of the better outros of the year even though it's a copy of Kanye's. The production is undeniably solid throughout and 6ix has again showed that he meshes so well with Logic. This is the Logic that many of his older fans, including myself, have missed. It's a good continuation of the YS series. Sweet and surprisingly nostalgic. Expand

    A more focus and aggressive , bringing back the boom bap logic makes what could be arguably the best project of his career.

    From the great samples to his rhyme schemes, amazing quick flow and lyrics he looks sharper than ever. Not being a fan of his recent album 'Everybody' he lets go of his common themes to attack this current generation of so called Mumble Rappers. Royce, Eminem and Even Denzel Curry have took their time to do the same this year.

    This album might not 'wow' a lot of people, but i say it is a necessary album, for the generation we're in

    Favorite Tracks:The Return, Wu Tang Forever, 100 miles and running, ICONIC
    Least Favorite Tracks: , Ordinary Day, Street Dreams II, Adventures of Stoney Bob
