The internets have been waiting on this collaborative extended player for some time now, and excuse us for being a couple days late in bringing it to your attention.
When two mutually respectful worlds align to create something new in the way Shlohmo & Jeremih have, it can rarely been seen as a disappointment. In fact it should be celebrated. And regardless of whether you feel this joint project is better or worse than each of their solo offerings, you have to respect their gusto – it’s easy to forget how much of a dirty word “R&B” was just a few years ago, especially in the electronic community. And who knew Jeremih would swing back after that meme-inducing chart topper?!
For the most part No More is a convincing release, it pushes forward with the current understanding of what contemporary R&B is – a genre no longer stagnant in the shadow of its golden era. It is for the most part however carried by Shlohmo’s productions which are wonderfully industrial and appropriately gully. Jeremih’s vocals unfortunately slip key far too often and his Weeknd-esque wailing at times is a little indulgent.
That said there are gems in here, pay particular attention to ‘The End’ and an extended version of ‘Fuck You All The Time’.
