Album Review: Jack in the Box by J-Hope

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

The obscure vision of Jack in the Box manifests in its production choices as well. The album is musically informed by '90s horror rap (RZA is an impressive yet plausible presence in the credits; the New York rapper and producer was a founding member of hip hop horrorcore pioneers Gravediggaz), be it through its chord progressions and basslines, or the macabre breathing sounds in the instrumental track "Music Box: Reflection". But there's also rap rock ("MORE"), and jazz rap, in its old school style of Large Professor and Digable Planets ("Stop"), but also in its neo R&B resembling branch ("Safety Zone").

Opinion: Very Good

Being part of the biggest boyband to currently exist , J-hope is a name that many know and love. His second album 'Jack In The Box' introduces a darker side of the artist. Through a blend of grunge, hip-hop and pop, J-hope provides an insight into his inner monologue. From just listening to second track 'Pandora's Box', J-hope is informing a listener that his previous connotations are no longer valid.
