As a playlist, Drake's More Life is a success; it's necessarily long and shaggy. (Unlike Views, which desperately needed an editor.) Begrudgingly, I have to admit that his descriptor makes sense, and that has shaped how I experience the music. It frees the songs from adhering to a narrative arc and creates the space for solo moments from Skepta and Sampha. That said, if you wanted to turn More Life into a traditional album, with a consistent sound and more Drake, this is the fat we'd trim.
