Recensione: POST MALONE – Hollywood’s Bleeding

Austin Richard Post si è evoluto. Devo dirlo. Ero molto titubante ad ascoltare il nuovo disco dell’uomo dei record. Il successo planetario del suo precedente album “Beerbongs & Bentleys” l’aveva decretato a portarsi il fardello di essere uno dei più grandi rapper del pianeta.

Ma Post Malone non vuole fare il rapper. Lui vuole fare solo musica. E in questo disco lo si sente! 

Le diciassette tracce dell’album sono la sua transazione, la sua nuova muta.

Artefice e pioniere della trap, luminare dell’hip-hop adesso si sta sempre più spostando verso il pop, ma anche verso l’electro, il country e il mondo indie.
Un processo che Posty ha ben calibrato. Così calibrati sono anche i feat.
Ci sono Future e Halsey, ma ci sono anche mister Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne con Travis Scott così come  SZA, Meek Mill e Lil Baby e poi le scritture e produzioni, su tutte quella con Kanye West (Internet).  

Nuovi suoni, nuove sperimentazioni. L’assolone di chitarra finale di Take What You Want , il quasi surf di Allergic,  l’orchestra di Internet o le atmosfere rilassate e funky di Myself ne danno evidenza. 

Per quanto riguarda le liriche chiariamo subito che non sono capolavori. Brani che sembrano essere composti più per la loro musicalità piuttosto che per il loro senso. Ma ci sta! Pezzi come Circles sono creati seguendo i dettami più canonici del pop, mentre altri, tipo Die For Me, sono esempi da manuale di una scrittura trap-pop banger.

Ciliegina sulla torta le super hit dei mesi scorsi Goodbyes, Sunflower e Wow che vanno di fatto a celebrare la sua produzione globale. 

Ecco abbiamo messo in fila tutti gli elementi per dire che questo “Hollywood’s Bleeding” è un buon disco che ci da una visione del futuro verso il quale, quello che rimane delle trap, si presta ad affrontare.

Due appunti finali: forse diciassette sono troppe e poi se abbandonasse definitivamente l’autotune ? 

Score:  7,15

Tre brani da ascoltare subito: Hollywood’s Bleeding – Circles – Take What You Want

Quotes:  

Hollywood’s bleeding, vampires feedin’
Darkness turns to dust
Everyone’s gone, but no one’s leavin’
Nobody left but us
Tryna chase a feelin’, but we’ll never feel it
Ridin’ on the last train home
Dyin’ in our sleep, we’re livin’ out a dream
We only make it out alone

I just keep on hopin’ that you call me
You say you wanna see me, but you can’t right now
You never took the time to get to know me
Was scared of losin’ somethin’ that we never found
We’re running out of reasons, but we can’t let go
Yeah, Hollywood is bleeding, but we call it home

Outside, the winter sky turnin’ grey
City up in smoke, it’s only ash when it rains
Howl at the moon and go to sleep in the day
Love for everybody ’til the drugs fade away
In the mornin’, blocking out the sun with the shades
She gotta check her pulse and tell herself that she okay
It seem like dying young is an honor
But who’d be at my funeral? I wonder
I go out, and all they eyes on me
I show out, do you like what you see?
And now they closin’ in on me
Let ’em sharpen all they teeth
This is more than I can handle
Blood in my Lambo’
Wish I could go, oh, I’m losin’ ho-ope
I light a candle, some Palo Santo
For all these demons, wish I could just go on

I just keep on hopin’ that you call me
You say you wanna see me, but you can’t right now
You never took the time to get to know me
Was scared of losin’ somethin’ that we never found
We’re running out of reasons, but we can’t let go
Yeah, Hollywood is bleeding, but we call it home

(Hollywood’s Bleeding)

Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Such a long time (Wow)
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (Yeah)
Such a long time
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (Yeah)
Such a long time (Ooh)

Ooh, this shit bliss, I’m so rich (Fuck that shit, ooh)
Abs like Abercrombie Fitch (Damn, ooh)
Milly, on my (Whoa, bitch)
Versace boxers on my dick (On my dick, damn)
Bud Light runnin’ through my piss (Ooh)
On a yacht 50 meters insuffish (Insufficient)
50 carats on my fist (On my fist)
The roof go down when I hit switch (Ooh, bitch)
I money ball like Bradley Pitt (Bradley Pitt, ayy)
I worked so hard for all this shit (All this shit)
Pumpin’ out classics in the Batmobile, goin’ bat shit

Such a long time (Damn)
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (Such a long time)
Such a long time (Such a long time)
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (For a long time)
Such a long time

I’m in Saint-Tropez, I had to check wrist (Wow)
I just bought my girl a new necklace (A new necklace)
One, two, three, four, five, six (Five six)
I’ll take ’em all, don’t matter what the price is (What the price is)
I said I’m sorry mama for my vices (For my vices)
You’ll never understand what my life is (My life is)
One, two, three, four, five, six (Damn)
Shit, I’m checking off my bucket list (My bucket list)
You try to give advice, I don’t need it
I’ve been doin’ what I want since fetus
What you call a holiday (Ooh), I call another day (Yeah)
And I ain’t ever stoppin’, no apologies

Such a long time (Such a long time)
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (Such a long time)
Such a long time (Such a long time)
I’ve been waitin’, I’ve been waitin’ for a long time (Long time)
Such a long time

I’m in Saint-Tropez, I had to check wrist

(Saint-Tropez)

Oh, oh, oh
Oh,  oh, oh
Oh,  oh, oh, oh, oh

We couldn’t turn around ’til we were upside down
I’ll be the bad guy now, but know I ain’t too proud
I  couldn’t be there even when I tried
You  don’t believe it, we do this every time

Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed  the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m  waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away

Let go, I got a feeling that it’s time to let go
I said so, I knew that this was doomed from the get-go
You thought that it was special, special
But it was just the sex though, the sex though
And I still hear the echoes (The echoes)
I got a feeling that it’s time to let it go, let it go

Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away

Maybe you don’t understand what I’m going through
It’s only me, what you got to lose?
Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?
It’s only me, let it go

Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
