Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment is a musical collective from Chicago of which Chance the Rapper is notably a member.
The Good: Surf is an energetic and sunny mix of soul, pop, rap and several other genres like surf rock and jazz fusion. There are also about as many people featured on this album as genres dabbled in but it all blends so smoothly together that it sounds more like a cohesive band than a bunch of featured artists. Also, the album is free which makes it the best value of any album this year so far.
The Bad: A lot of the criticism I have seen for this album is that it is not a new Chance the Rapper album which to me says less about Surf‘s value as an album and more about the sense of entitlement of some of his fans. Also, whatever flaws this album has are more than made up for by the fact that it is free.
