Read the review below:

Positives

After a decade, Fresh L, Teezee, and BOJ decided to give us their debut album, and it is amazing. The idea of the project was to stamp their foot as the actual pioneers of the alte movement and that theme was well followed. The structure of the project was great as they weaved through different genres like trap, RnB, Afro-pop, cloud rap, and even Jazz while making sure they stick to their alte sound.
The productions were stellar, the delivery from all the artist on this project was good except Olamide's.
'Ma Pariwo' is a personal favorite and Lady Donli arguably had the best verse on the album as she weaved her unique style on the GMK produced track. 'Set It Off,' 'Salty,' and 'Necessary' are also big tunes with the latter being a sleeper hit already.

Negatives

The track with Olamide was unnecessary and boring. Apart from the fact that 'Shomo' was not needed, it was downright uninteresting.
