Rating: 9/10

Jaden Smith never fails as an actor, musician, or rapper, and his newest album, SYRE, proves that he is just unstoppable. Smith packed this album with deep thoughts and his honest opinions, and who would’ve thought that they would turn into such great music. I didn’t expect much out of SYRE, but once you listen to the entire album, your view on it will change. SYRE is the opposite of a typical, basic rap album, and it is definitely something worth listening to.

“B”, “L”, “U” and “E” are the grand openers of SYRE, a four part introduction song. “B” shows Jaden Smith’s sister, Willow Smith, reciting some kind of sermon, explaining a more sad time. They both talk about being “blue”, singing in a heartbroken way. Later on, Jaden comes in strong with his raps, making these four songs so amazing. Heartbreak, love, and life are some of the main topics sung about in these four songs. Adam, Eve, and other biblical people are mentioned within these songs, used as examples of things that have happened in Smith’s life.

A favorite on the album is “Icon,” a truly iconic song from SYRE. In this song, Smith shows off all of his accomplishments, talking about how much of an icon he believes he is: “We up too hot in the business, ‘bout to make a movie independent”. These lyrics show him, once again, bragging about a movie he is starring in called Life In A Year. The lyrics are interesting to listen to, and the beat itself is very catchy. He brags about his car, his record label, and his other successions, and turned it into one of the most popular songs on the album.

Another one of the best songs is “Watch Me”, which was released earlier in the year, with a music video. The crazy beat and Smith’s rapping skills make this song so catchy. The music video itself shows him releasing his anger through his lyrics while roaming a desert, which created this insane work of music.

Jaden Smith’s SYRE means so much to him, as it is named after one of his middle names. He came to flex, and this whole album shows that. I am very surprised at the outcome of SYRE, and I bet all of his fans are very proud of how far he has come. SYRE is a project that is so deep and complicated, but that’s what makes it such an astounding album. Give SYRE a chance, and you will certainly not regret it.
