Hi-Res
Travis Scott’s third studio album was expected to be his crowning work. After a complete dominance over the rap world and global hits like Pick Up The Phone, Goosebumps and Antidote, the rapper from Houston had a singular ambition for this ASTROWORLD, an album that was postponed several times. A choral manifesto whose result is up to the phenomenon. The album is a logical series of spurious and harrowing collages. Travis here rather poses as a curator or an art director than a total artist. He easily blends samples to concoct his own formula, an unstoppable musical behemoth. Uncredited guests are treated like samples in this massive explosive cocktail, despite the fact that they are some of the biggest names in the business, among whom Drake, 21Savage, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Stevie Wonder. This complete levelling of sources and tributes turn ASTROWORLD into a completely polymorphic work, both a mainstream blockbuster and a modern artsy piece. Already a few months old, his hit song BUTTERFLY EFFECT fully blends in, as if the album absorbed all the energies to spit out a single colour. Other tracks like SICKO MOB or NOBYSTANDERS sound like hit songs in the making, despite their complex structure. At the crossroads of sometimes diverging paths, Travis Scott creates a unique balance that could please both the mainstream public and music lovers keen on obscure references. Merrily switching from DJ Screw to the Kardashians, ASTROWORLD is the soundtrack of our times, an impeccable musical maze, vain at times, but in which listeners can delightfully lose themselves. And yet, Travis’ identity is yet to be uncovered within the plethora of strings and borrowed sounds. ASTROWORLD is a great sci-fi flick in which the replicant becomes the norm, the new musical human. © Aurélien Chapuis/Qobuz

Titled after one of Quavo's lines from the chirpy summertime 2016 hit co-billed to Travis Scott and Young Thug, this fitfully hypnotizing follow-up arrived after numerous delays, toward the end of the year's third quarter. "Pick Up the Phone" functioned as the lead single off Thug's JEFFERY, and it sensibly reappears here, buried in the latter half, de-emphasized yet not quite a tacked-on bonus. It's easily the track with the most pop appeal on Scott's second full-length. Released almost exactly a year after Rodeo, Birds in the Trap features little development, though the large company Scott keeps is quite different, and Metro Boomin is noticeably absent. Among the present is André 3000, who drops by on "The Ends" to recollect the infamous rash of murders that struck his city during his early childhood. The album's deepest verse by a great measure, it has no discernible connection to Scott's surrounding rhymes of cocksure nonsense. That remains the M.O. of Scott, who remains deeply into heavy accessorization and proclamations of dominance, as well as punctuations with affirmative exclamations cast in dehumanizing pitch alteration. Swarming basslines and sluggish beats likewise form the rhythmic foundation, with gauzy and tickling keyboards adding sweetness to Scott's hedonistic hooks. Only on "Guidance," through scuttling drums granted by DF, is there a significant shake-up. This time, Scott co-produced only one track, another Weeknd collaboration, and it easily slips into the album's scheme with its serpentine menace and lightweight lyricism. Among the others on the guest carousel are Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, 21 Savage, and Cassie. They all pass in a slow-motion blur. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
