Album Review: Will This Make Me Good by Nick Hakim

Great, Based on 3 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Amid scattered featured appearances made between the 2017 and 2020 release dates of Green Twins and Will This Make Me Good, Nick Hakim also recorded a split collaborative single with his associates in Onyx Collective. He was the headliner on the A-side, "Vincent Tyler," an uneasy if driving ballad about discovering a slain body. The song reappears on the second album from the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in a very different shape, stretched out with a backmasking effect as a percussive accent to a muffled bass drum thud, augmented by a new vocal that's almost vaporous.

Three years after the release of his blissful, soul-stirring debut album 'Green Twins', Nick Hakim has returned with an even bolder artistic statement, 'WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD'. Hakim's sound on 'Green Twins' was warm and intimate: he blended hushed soul atmospherics with rounded psychedelic ripples and did it through the lens of thoroughly modern playlist-pop. He presented himself as the perfect modern songwriter - showing deference and paying homage to greats of the past, while still holding on to an intrinsic uniqueness that differentiates him from his peers.

After receiving high praise on debut album Green Twins, Nick Hakim is back with sophomore album WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD, which displays flashes of brilliance, showcasing the Brooklyn-based artist's talent in song arrangement. Shifting between its two core sounds of dream pop and soulful R&B, with hints of indie rock and electronic, the album's biggest highlights resonate with these current times. "QADIR," dedicated to Hakim's late friend Qadir Imhotep West, is a reminder to check in with loved ones, making it quite pertinent for these stressful times of quarantine.
