1. Come Home
2. Make It Better
3. Reachin' 2 Much
4. Winners Circle
5. Good Heels
6. Yada Yada
7. King James
8. Chosen One
9. Jet Black
10. Twilight
11. What Can We Do?

Now that it's available for pre-order, figured I'd start a new post and let the 'Oxnard' thread be its own thing.

Album drops Apr 12.

First single is "King James": https://youtu.be/NebTkEtXfVI

Oxnard was the most disappointing album of 2018 for me.

that piano/keyboard section at the end of Yada Yada played for much longer.

Pretty cool of Paak to follow up from Oxnard so quickly with these tracks. The first half of this feels more cohesive than the second half to me, but that's just based from the first listen. Very solid effort here.

these tracks were recorded the same time as the tracks for Oxnard were recorded, correct? Should be interesting to see going forward how much Dr. Dre will be involved with future Paak projects since I'm assuming the reaction between this and Oxnard are like night and day.

I know his band worked with him on the album. I know he was working with Nile Rodgers at some point, I wonder if that stuff made the album.

If you have full and complete trust in Wikipedia, here's a link http://tinyurl.com/y263y32w


I don't think the stuff with Nile Rodgers made the cut, unless Wikipedia isn't fully accurate or I misread what's on the webpage.

I'm old but I can see this song being a hit. Album is good start to finish. Anderson is the real deal. Somehow this album makes me appreciate Oxnard more, I think some of the backlash was it just being different from what people were expecting.

King James...and I do like that song

But the album just comes to a complete full stop for me

Didn't fit the flow and shoulda been one of those bonus cuts stuck on the end

...and cut the Nate dogg song...

My 2 complaints.

Great improvement

The run of songs to open the album is perfect

But...the huge gap connecting King James with the sound/feel of the album is still concerning

...as that was my major issue with Oxnard...


Great album.

At least as of right now, very early on, I agree with folks who said Malibu is better. But this is damn good and definitely better than Oxnard. Although I'd maybe argue that the highs ("Anywhere," for example) are higher on Oxnard. Ventura just sounds more consistent and more his lane.

Edit: they did a really nice job w/the Nate Dogg song. Wonder where he got the vocals ! Fredwreck !!!!
