Very rarely do you see artists get away with dropping multiple projects in a year. You might get an album and a mixtape, two full albums, or a barrage of singles, an album, and a bonus EP all in one year. However, when was the last time you saw three albums drop in a single year, and all of them be hits with critics and simultaneously resonate with audiences? The Backstreet Boys could never. Following the groundbreaking SATURATION trilogy, and rebounding from some derailing controversy, the Hip-Hop collective featuring the lyrical talents of Kevin Abstract, Dom McLennon, Merlyn Wood, Matt Champion, Joba, and Bearface, return with a profoundly creative new album. Embarking on a new album trilogy entitled “The Best Years of Our Lives“, and continuing to push the envelope of social norms and Hip-Hop constructs, iridescence is a brilliantly vivid album breathing new life into this new direction the group has set off in. The production is gripping and blunt, the lyricism has gradually evolved, and more so, the collective sound has blossomed impeccably. The verses are delivered with a different energy this time around, making the music feel alive. Each song exists as its own entity, helping the album give a brand new impression to an already familiar boyband. Refined, refocused, and unapologetically relentless, BROCKHAMPTON is here to continue to drop great albums and make history at the same damn time.
