“swimming” by mac miller review


Mac Miller’s “Swimming” is as refreshing as a backyard pool on a hot, summer day.

Mac Miller released his 9th album, “Swimming,” on August 3rd, 2018. The rap album contains 13 songs and sold 24,000 physical copies. The album, in total, currently has 199.23 million on-demand streams.

I really love this album because of the general vibe of each song. Mac does a mix of rapping and singing, which he hasn’t done in his previous albums (he needed to though because he has a good voice). The album features no artists other than Mac, but he executes each song perfectly. The cover art is a photo of Mac sitting in front of a casket. He’s wearing a pink suit and his eyes are closed. The casket is open, and you can see that, on the inside, there appears to be a window of a plane on the inside. Mac is seen inside this same casket during his “Self Care” music video, one of his most popular songs from the album.

“Masterpiece of an album,” says YouTube user Kevin Hernandez.

I can’t think of anything negative to say about the album, but I will say that he talks a lot about drug abuse, which can be an uncomfortable topic for some people. He also uses lots of language in the album. However, it is a rap album, so it’s just one of those things that you have to get comfortable with. For me, the album is kind of bittersweet to listen to. “Swimming” is the last album that Mac released before he, unfortunately, passed away on September 7th, 2018. It’s kind of sad to hear him rapping about everything that he aspired to be, knowing now that he’d be dead in a month.

“This Album Is Not Like The Others This One Is More Worse Than Watching Movies With The Sound Off That One Was Bad Enough But This One Is Actually Worse,” says Google review user Nolan Smith.
