[ gratitude. ] by jinsang is the young beat maker's latest beat tape filled with a copious amount of soul and an abundance of gracefully laced instrumentals. [ gratitude. ] is definitely a pleasure to endure. A prevalent theme throughout the duration of the album is its passionate, affection driven instrumentals; in the midst of a song I found myself romanticizing with the songs elegantly plucked guitar strings, distinct sultry jazzy saxophones and piano keys. It’s an aura that does not seem to tire; its sentiments are ever lasting. If love is an eternity, jinsang showcases a clear passion for beat making resulting with an album we can adorn endlessly. With instrumentals like “somehow”, our focus shifts the appeal and allure of “this.city”; Its temptation is too great to ignore, a slight departure from the albums smooth and sexy sound, its contrast is rough and the sound is beautiful. The combination of the two songs “somehow” and “this.city” play to the albums lady love; the skin is weak and sometimes you have to yield to temptation because it may not pass your way again. Instrumentals like “somehow” and “this.city” add a great balance to the entirety of the project.
Everything about [ gratitude. ] is desirable, from the moonlight ambience with its sexy feminine silhouette, to its soulful grace that is so tempting. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the naked eye. It seems as though jinsang is lead by his passion and his appreciation for sensual and unblemished instrumentals, therefore [ gratitude. ] will take precedence in my playlist.
