Quick Album Reviews | Care For Me By Saba

Do you want to know about an album in a quick and brief article? Well, you’re in the right place! I’m the kind of person who likes to listen to full albums and more recently I have been listening to a lot of albums that I have missed in the past. And boy have I heard some great albums recently. So here’s a very brief album review of a hip-hop album I heard recently called Care For Me by Saba.

The way this album starts is with the song BUSY / SIRENS. And to be honest with you, this may be my favourite songs of the whole album. This song is essentially two songs and has more of a mellow and reflective vibe to it. The first word he says on the album is “I’m so alone” which becomes a theme of this album as he talks about the trauma he’s had to endure, specifically with the death of his cousin Walter who was killed during an incident on a train. The SIRENS part of the song is so relaxing and meditative and almost makes me wish it was its own song. Nonetheless, it is still a fantastic song to listen to.

Another song I enjoyed was FIGHTER which is essentially a song about not wanting to fight with the people you care about. This hit home for me because I am someone who hates getting into fights with people as I often feel like there just isn’t enough time in this world to waste on fighting. Saba also does a great job of explaining what it is like to get in fights as well and how it’s not always physical but often times verbal. Lyrics such as “I know that you think you listening but you just waiting to talk” and “t’s harder to love myself when all these people compliment me. Somehow it just remind me what I don’t got” are lyrics that stand out to me on this song and makes the song feel more relatable. Maybe not one of the more popular songs on this album but it’s definitely one of my personal favourites.

I should also quickly mention PROM / KING which may be one of the greatest storytelling songs I’ve heard. I won’t spoil this song for you as it’s one you must listen to.

Overall, I loved this album and I’m surprised it took me this long to get to it. It’s an album that has some relatability for me and some fantastic storytelling, production and lyricism,


Overall Rating: 8.5/10
