Because The Internet is a sonic-experience of an album, one that accelerated Donald Glover’s meteoric rise both as a celebrity and musician in 2012. Gambino leans heavily on the influence of hip-hop had in his early recordings, showing his progress as an artist by expanding songs in ways that push beyond the genre’s norms. It’s arguably Glover’s most complete project as Childish Gambino, and one that’s still earning spins over six years since its release. Time flies.
Gambino executes with purpose to bring his incredibly ambitious vision to life, giving listeners a dense concept album with themes as complex as the music itself. Tracks like “Worldstar” go from a classic trap banger to a fluttering psychedelic outro flawlessly, all while providing pointed cultural criticisms lyrically. What stands out more than a single song, moment or punchline is how precise the production is from top to bottom. It’s as if Glover set a new bar to clear with each stroke of his brush across the Because The Internet canvas.
