Album Review: Eternal Atake by Lil Uzi Vert
Indranshu Das | Staff Writer
Finally. The wait is over. For Uzi fans, they nearly lost faith on this album. Eternal Atake took an eternity to release, and I would say that it was worth the wait. Songs like Baby Pluto, Prices, and P2 were the backbone of the album. P2 (Part Two) was the unexpected sequel to the emo-rap hit XO Tour Llif3, one of Uzi’s most popular songs. I would say that the sequel was better than the original, taking surprising lyrical turns that played along with the instrumentals perfectly. Even more than that, what impressed me was how Uzi’s work turned a BackStreet Boys interpolation upside down . As you go through the album, at the end of each song he dedicates a couple seconds to the “journey” he is going through, living up to how he wanted the album to be seen. This, by far, was Uzi’s best album to date, and what a time to release it when we’re all quarantined inside our homes.
