Post Malone : beerbongs & bentleys


Within minutes, Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys has you reaching for the tissues.

The album opener ‘Paranoid Man’ doesn’t just draw you in, it grabs a hold and yanks you into a new place – a place in which you’re at the mercy of Malone’s voice. By the second track this album is interestingly infectious. Not in a typical, poppy way, but in a way that is both engaging and fresh.

From start to finish, the tracklist is a string of rich and well-crafted R&B ballads. ‘Zack And Codeine’ shines as the somewhat upbeat and poppy relief, but the very last line “We aint sleeping tonight” fades quickly and settles into a deep, raw place. It’s everything you want from Malone, an excuse to be moody.

Thought-provoking lyrics aside, the composition of dreamy, raw melodies and the intricately layered backing track is calculated and even, leaving you feeling all kinds of things. Not to sound cliché, but this album is a banger.
