In an age when Michael Cera can be a leading man and novelty raps like PSY's "Gangnam Style" and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Store" are top sellers digitally, it only seems logical that George Watsky would blow up. Thing is, there's more than meets the eye with this geeky white kid. His awkward appearance and slight lisp could lead many to write him off as a novelty, like one of the rappers portrayed in the Nerdcore Rising documentary. However, willfully silly as he may be, for Cardboard Castles, the Def Poetry Jam poet and author behind "Pale Kid Raps Fast" tackles deep subject matter in his rhymes and articulates it in an analytical way that is truly rare. ~ Jason Lymangrover

George Watsky's fourth proper album reckons with the inconsequentiality of existence with a "live it up" perspective. Produced mostly by longtime collaborator Kush Mody, its stylistic range is broad and colorful. Through "Chemical Angel," with shades of the Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel, and lively strings that lift "Yes Britannia" and "Brave New World," among other cuts, it verges on kaleidoscopic. The characteristically high percentage of rhymes seemingly written and recorded strictly to impress is not bound to win over those who have passed on Watsky's past work. Ultimately, this is his brightest, most accomplished release yet. Anderson Paak, producer of 2014's All You Can Do, contributes to "Midnight Heart," one of the leaner and more effective tracks, where Watsky encapsulates the album's theme: "It's tough to care about stupid bullshit all of the time." ~ Andy Kellman

Slam rapper and hip-hop poet Watsky digs beats and flows so brittle he's a borderline acquired taste, and while marveling at his word-spinning should be universal, here things get real deep, real fast. All You Can Do is autobiographical to the point where that's Watsky's poet dad on the cover, and when "Tears to Diamonds" comes round with its story of a life saved by a doctor's prescription, it's a wordy wonder that's more amazing than connectable. Returning fans, drug scientists, and those who know their Imuran from their Azathioprine may beg to differ, but like Watsky, they're thinking along the narrow and not the broad. Still, if well-written and bulging diaries are appealing, All You Can Do is just what the doctor ordered. ~ David Jeffries
