Album Review: Hive Mind by The Internet (9/10)

Hive Mind by The Internet is a mixture of alternative R&B, neo-soul, funk, psychedelic soul, hip-hop and avant-garde jazz. The album’s first single, “Roll (Burbank Funk),” is stylized and structured in a manner similar to music from the P-Funk genre of the ‘70s. But the most thrilling composition from the new album is a track called “Next Time/Humble Pie.” This song combines enthralling vocals from Syd tha Kid with classic Odd Future synth chords and a breakdown section that completely changes every harmonic note near the song’s midpoint.

Rating: 9/10
