Lil Piston "Forever N Ever" Review
Charlotte’s resident starboy is back and better then ever with his latest effort, Forever N Ever. Following up Bee Hive Vol. 1 and the Starboy series, Forever N Ever complies everything Piston has learned as an artist up to this point and carefully focus’ it all in one package. The overall sound of the project doesn’t deviate much from the somber melodic sound Saybo is known for however, it brings it to a more epic sounding level. Tracks like Summer Fine, Stink Stink, and You Don’t Really Know all give us that Piston feel that we’ve all become comfortable with over the course of his previous releases. While tracks like Dazed and Confused, Think About It, and No manners show different take on Saybo’s tales of heartbreak; leaving the listener with a feeling of desperation at the end of each cut.
Story Time is sure to shut old heads up as Piston effortlessly flexes his rap skills with the art of story telling; Narrating a simple day at school and presumably meeting the girl of his dreams. Rain On Me could possibly be the most creative track on the project. The percussionless, ambient guitar driven ballad is a acceptional outro that details Pistons conflicting thoughts on love. The production on Forever N Ever fits the flow and vibe of the project perfectly. The choir on the opening track sets the perfect tone for what is to come, the ambient on Rain on Me sets the vibe right to ease the listener out of album mode, while Story Time with its minimal production is sure to be glued to ears of the listener for quite sometime. Overall Forever N Ever is everything we expect from Piston and more. Be sure to stream that everywhere music is available!
