Matt Brevner – Magnum Opus [Review]
Vancouver, B.C. – Matt Brevner raps boldly of coming with an original sound and of being the “freshest in the game.” Brevner’s new album Magnum Opus shows the rapper’s impressive skill as far as flow goes – he is a talented MC – but his latest project is not quite the original opus he promises.
“Top of the Globe” is a dope track that indicates the rapper has his ear to the street when it comes to modern, popular hip-hop: it carries that lighthearted sound that artists like Drake and Kid Cudi have based their careers off of. The song “Never Gonna be My Friend” shows that Brevner has dealt with some serious shit when it comes to the “finer sex”, a theme which female audiences always seem to find interesting,
Matt Brevner’s sense of humour is evident throughout the entire album, but “The Ecstacy Song” is an especially comical observation on the human tendency to make questionable decisions. “Sunday Morning” also helps show off Brevner’s character and wordplay when he vows to “never drink that much again… not till next weekend.”
Matt Brevner has a ways to go as far a being “the freshest in the game”: Magnum Opus lacks the type of addictive sound that keeps one coming back for more. On the plus side, it shows definite potential for the future, and nicely showcases his flow and talent for writing.
