    SURF: It’s talking about how he feels lonely in a crowd but he has one person who he feels really knows him and it makes him feel grounded.
    Reminds me of Song of Solomon in the Bible. Image of the seasons and life going round and round. This one though has more of a sense of despair- like he is giving up
    i think it’s about him being honest about his sex addiction,
    he knows it’s wrong wants to stop but can’t and it’s hell for him inside emotionally
    He’s so lost in this one. He feels bad about something, but he knows no one who knows where we are going. He wants to give this girl happiness and gives an attempt, but really he knows he can’t succeed b/c he himself is lost and turned around. It’s like Jordon Peterson talks about- he has no structure to support his life- no value system. He is operating on pure emotion and he is being tossed around and left at the mercy of his emotions

    is interestingly. The music is upbeat but gets earie at the end-a strange foreboding. He looks happy and winsome in the video. Meanwhile, the lyrics again show despair- that he is fighting to just get through a single day at a time without complications. The impression as is with most of his happy songs is that he is trying to convince himself to be upbeat while fighting depression and despair.

    I can see:
    I just did I can see- hear he is lost in existential thought and really begging for someone to pull him out and show him the way. He is lost in himself- thinking in a way thats making him crazy because he is completely self absorbed. A tormented soul
    he’s so deep in sex addiction he just says fuck it and it’s despairing but he wishes he could of taken it back but also is aware he’s in too deep

    Its really sad that he started crying but I'm also like..... you didn't like any of his recent albums except good AM. Maybe he realizes that because mac is gone he feels his music more idk it's weird for me. I hated his reviews on mac's albums because he was disconnected from the music it was like he listened to a different album than me, swimming was a personal album for mac and he wasn't appreciating it at all I hope after this he can go back to the albums previous to this one and start to feel them more

    Do the whole album now!

  • Nicholas Buccelli

    He definitely needs to re- review swimming cause that God damn album is a true work of art along with the circles which is continuation of circles "swimming in circles"

    I reacted the same way. Anyone who watched mac from the start recognizes every single reference in the video and its a real heart breaker. Then you have the lyrics that just hit so damn deep. Dude had the kindest soul in the industry, probably the biggest idol I ever had.

    If Mac was “alive” he would’ve trashed this song. I love Mac Miller and think he was a great artist. But I’m not a person that contributes “passing” to influence the critique of a piece of music.
    Almost every song Mac sung on was not great, in my opinion. And I know needle dick feels the same based on his earlier reviews. Mac rapping on Faces was the dopest shit, but I respect him trying to progress as an artist.
    But needledick is full of shit on this review. Don’t buy his tears.

      Just because he didnt like his past work doesnt mean he has to hate on everything he creates. Im a cynical person but don't you think faking tears in a track review video is a bit farfetched? Im guessing youve never been touched by music that way

    • Jashen

      Yeah, I came into this expecting him to shit on it based on how he felt from his past works. I don’t know if I buy his tears tbh.

    idk about yall but posthumous records kinda irk me. I get that there are unreleased bits and pieces that artists have but generally every album ends up being EXTREMELY underwhelming. I'll listen to it, but I'm going in with low expectations.

    • hguiohoi asdsad
      hguiohoi asdsad Day ago +1

      It's a bit more than bits and pieces. It was almost finished before his death. And the producer for swimming is filling in the gaps. As far as posthumous records go, it's got the best chance

  • GoldenFriendsFTW

    You should do a Worst to Best for all Mac Miller's projects when Circles comes out.
