NATE GOOD - GOALS(HEAT CHECK)

April 24, 2017

 

1. Head Held High - Solid hook, and doesn’t overuse the auto-tune. Cool track. BANGER REVIEW: 7.0/10.0

 

2. Extraordinary - Man is good with the flow, but I think his ear for melody is even more impressive on this one. Better than the first track. BANGER REVIEW: 7.5/10.0

 

3. Lava Lamp - WAVY. This man’s combination of flow and melody is unmatched. Why the hell does this song not have more plays?????????????????? Gonna be hard to outdo this one. BANGER REVIEW: 10/0/10.0

 

4. Goals - Okay so I thought Nate lacked a little bit on the lyrical side of things, and I’ll take the L for that. Not only is this catchy, there are some crazy punchlines in there. (The technical foul line is gold!) Side note: 4/4 with these hooks. BANGER REVIEW: 8.0/10.0

 

5. Good Looks - First of all, this production >>>>>>>>>>. Whoever produced this need: Good Looks. This song itself is also crazy. Justifiably has the most plays so far. BANGER REVIEW: 9.5/10.0 ​

 

6. New Waves - A little slower, and a little more risky, but it grew on me as it went through. The instrumental really fit the lyrics on this one, and I’m a fan of the little outro. Would be interested in hearing this sound from Nate a little more. BANGER REVIEW: 8.5/10.0

 

7. Run Away - A good song, but unfortunately dulls in comparison to the previous ones. (Kinda a rough criticism considering the previous ones have been amazing, but fair all the same.) Hook was the only part that really shined to me on this one. BANGER REVIEW: 7.5/10.0 ​

 

8. Ocean Drive - This man’s ability to pick a perfect hook and melody is almost unhuman. Definitely a vibe track more than a banger, and based on the lyrics I think that’s exactly what he was aiming for. Well done. BANGER REVIEW 8.0/10.0

 

9. Ten Toes - Personally, I get a Nav/Drake vibe from this one. Especially within the lyrics, it’s definitely filled with quotables and plenty of introspection, while still managing to make it catchy. BANGER REVIEW 8.0/10.0

 

10. Blue Flames - Fam I don’t care what color the flames are, but it’s flames alright. “Too old to be young but too young to be old”, great line. Plenty of introspection again on this one, and to good effect. Great outro, great way to close a fantastic project. BANGER REVIEW: 9.5/10.0

 

Overall, one of the best projects I’ve heard in a very long time. Good’s ability to place a melody and instrumental together is incredible. He’s no novice when it comes to the bars, either. I genuinely don’t understand how this man isn’t bigger than he is, and you’re playing yourself if you miss out on listening to this. The best way I can describe this sound is a combination of Drake, G-eazy, old-school Mac Miller, and Post Malone combined into one. Now, I’m fully aware that doesn’t sound like a specific assessment, but that’s only because this man is so versatile. Bangers, vibes, and introspective waves all over stunning production. Nate, you just gained a new fan here, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing that a lot very shortly. OVERALL: 9.5/10.0
