An insanely fast flow, coupled with a haunting piano and bassy synth growls, provide compelling moments in Generation's “Marooned.” Again, the verbal velocity he can muster––the hyper-precision of his diction, though it can sometimes seem like a stunt––is often gripping. “Ozymandias” (inspired by John Keats?) is similar in its attack, and makes clear this artist’s bookish sophistication, although his message is in part a blanket indictment of the music industry and its treatment of artists. The artist changes things up with “Rebel” where he delivers a more typical flow. We love the bold sounds in this track, including baroque organ. More work will enable these songs and this artist to blossom.
