Circles is the finest musical send-off any Mac Miller fan could have asked for.

You’re such a snob. Acting like your taste is superior. That you didn’t like swimming says enough of your taste in music, it’s shit.

On second thought, I'm lowering my score to a 7/10, because Mac's voice started grating on me after half a dozen listens. I still like everything else about it, though.

I don't even know why you're rating this album after the disrespect you showed to faces and swimming. If you actually opened those cauliflowers on the side of your head and maybe listened to the projects more than once. You would see how lyrical Mac was. Fucking fool

I’m genuinely trying to understand this review. I honestly believe swimming and circles are very nearly on par. Even though others might disagree, I still can’t see Swimming being a 3 and Circles being nearly THREE times better?

Big Bright Eyes fan, and I heard a lot of similar themes in Mac's music, as I seen in Conor's Music, at least with this album. Just felt like that was validated when you drew comparisons to M. Ward and Elliott Smith.

I think Circles is a beautiful and honestly perfect companion to Swimming. Mac Miller meant a lot to me, I grew up with him and his music, he might even be my favorite artist of all time. He’s impacted me the most and his music has been the soundtrack to my life in a way. I’m just grateful and feel lucky to be able to hear new music from Mac again. This record is incredible and I give so much thanks to Mac’s family and Jon Brion for the care they gave this. It honored his legacy perfectly and was refreshing to see in an industry who exploits artists in death constantly. Sonically this album felt like a Prince or Elton John record and really showcases the evolution of Mac’s sound, growth as an artist and development as a musician. He was just scratching the surface musically of what he was gonna become and reaching an artistic space, many aren’t capable of in this genre. So many songs hit deep on this one and are painful to hear, from the lyrics to the ultimate narrative of the album. It’s almost like Mac knew, but the peace within this gorgeous sonic art piece of music and the self awareness was incredible to listen to. RIP to Mac 92 Till Infinity Forever, thanks for giving him and this project the respect it deserved. Just wish his other projects and him in general would’ve got that respect while he was still here. Much love man.

Has it ever crossed your mind that he may have called this Circles because he saw your review of Macadelic, where you describe him as 'going around in circles'?

I gladly agree that the aspect of Mac Miller's voice in the foreground was a great idea and makes the LP intimate. But it simply can't be compared to Swimming. Swimming is coherent, full of details / ornaments, yes, also groovy, diverse, surprising.. It sounds full and is resonant, it surrounds, embeds you. A lot of Circles is (well, conveniently) repetetive, sometimes the leftover elements are primitively thrown together and complemented only artificially. As far as one could know, he was quite perfectionist and I'm not able to imagine that he wouldn't have changed so so much about this record still - lyrics, PERCUSSION ELEMENTS, voice layers.. Complicated and I Can See are strictly bad songs to me, lost pieces not well tied together, not flattering his voice.. I've grown to like Hands, Woods (except those drums..) and Hand Me Downs and liked Good News from the beginning. Everyone is an awesome cover. But that's it. I am relieved you acknowledged his singing more in this review even if it's ironic, because on swimming it was much more elaborated. Seems to me you should listen to it again and recognize the completeness of it. My humble, but certain opinion. Maybe it's the respect towards Mac Miller and that he didn't have any final says, not even about all the songs being chosen for this album. Maybe I'm just still very sad!

I've been on this planet for thirty-something shit years and Swimming is fast becoming one of my most listened to albums.
kartinchamp 29 days ago
Complicated was by far my favorite off Circles. I'm surprised so many claim to dislike swimming though. It seemed to have more variation yet still unified as an album. Circles just seems sad and I feel like it lacks the finishing touches Mac would have been able to put on it had he still been here. That's the catch-22 of post-humous releases. You've got other people's hands on your work and you can't do anything about it.

anthony you didn't have to say Circles was a Miller li- nah, this is too much. That unrecorded final third of the trilogy will always be one of the great what-could-of-been albums in history. It's in the Dream Library of could have been now. What a suitably sick album to finish on. Bittersweet, but so sweet
Exalt 29 days ago
Thank you for not making those overused joke comments, I agree with what you said too. Jon Brion did an amazing job for the final album of Mac's career, couldn't have ended it off any better.

I think my favorites off of the album were Blue World and Good News. Blue World's production is gorgeous and Good News lyricism is almost haunting.

Why do you feel the need to include that you're a Mac fan or not? Of course you can be a fan of Mac and like or dislike the music he makes. I respect your opinion but there's no need to add that in my guy.

@Kenneth Davis To be fair he changed his mind significantly on Faces, he gave it a 6 initially when he reviewed it initially but since then it made his top 200 albums of the decade list and he's stated he swore he gave it a 7 at least, it was his favorite Mac project prior to this one

How does he like this album and hate Swimming... it makes zero sense...
Ragnar Day ago
Swimming isn't horrible, but honestly it's a 5/10 for me. The only great tracks are 2009, Small Worlds and Come Back To Earth Dunno, Ladders and Perfecto are incredibly forgettable with bad singing and bland instrumentals. The rest of the track list is okay, but Conversation Pt. 1 or Jet Fuel for example just have some of the most generic lyrics I've heard in a while

Wow so interesting to watch him over-analyze and mistakenly categorize shit and then applaud the most simplistic thing he ever put out I wish people who are music critics actually had to have some Talent so we could rely on The credibility

Exalt 29 days ago
The major flaw of what you're saying is that you need to be educated on music to be able to understand and criticize music. Even if that were to be true, he does know shit about music theory, you're just judging off of what he said about the album to assume he doesn't have talent which apparently equals credibility. Keep in mind that this is his own opinion, whether you like it or not, this is the way he views the album. Your meaning of "over-analyzing" can mean surface level aspects that fantano acknowledges. All I'm saying, anybody can be criticized no matter who you are or what you know.

Honestly fuck anyone’s “review” on macs music. He is one of the greatest of all time. Have your opinion but a whole ass RUvid video review of the album is a waste of time. Why can’t people have their opinions without broadcasting them. Listen to the album, analyze it, be inspired and stfu.
