I liked Party Next Door’s first mixtape, so when I heard that he is about to release Party Next Door Two, I was eager to hear how it would sound. Personally I believe when I first heard his music, I noticed he had a similar vibe compared to The Weeknd, however their voices are different as PND’s is more robust, whereas The Weeknd’s is more soft. Overall they are both different in their own way as artists.
Back to the review, listening to Party Next Door Two, I feel like it is an album that you can definitely zone out too, which is good, as this genre of music is not so common amongst artists, currently in the industry. Only the likes of The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and JMSN, who are apart of this type of genre.
Through the album he does go from being mellow to having an energetic vibe, so it creates variety within his music. My favourite track would have to be ‘Recognize’, which was a track released at the time he announced his album date. The track features none other then his boss Drake and it really does have Drake’s touch all over the track, from the way PND even flows over the beat.
Another track, which I like on his album, would be ‘Bout It’, as it is very catchy because his tone changes throughout the single, which makes the track enjoyable to listen to. ‘Muse’ is a track to zone out to and I like the calm vibe of the single, so it is one I would listen to again.
Overall it is an album you would either love or you would prefer his first mixtape instead, for me I definitely prefer his first mixtape to this album. It is a decent album to listen to; so I would still recommend it, as there were a few tracks that I would still listen to again. I think the second half of his album is better then the first half, as the first few tracks sound very similar, therefore sounds quite repetitive.
Party Next Door Two is out now.
