Raury – All We Need

★★★☆☆ = Good!

What’s it sound like?

A blend of pop, hip hop, acoustic songwriter, alternative, r&b


Instrumentation and songwriting is really good, he’s clearly plugged in given some of the features on this; points for pulling from the right influences. Engaged by the variety of styles, I enjoyed the first seven or so, he’s at his best when he’s evoking Andre 3000 ala forbidden knowledge.

I feel he needs a bit more time to grow as a lyricist as he raps about the right topics but lacks lyrical wit. The album is long winded and his altruistic preaching feels disconnected and unrelatable.
