Honestly, this album got me through last week. It’s one that you can put on repeat all day, and never get bored with. The good vibes just emanate throughout Lemonade, and cultivate a good mood. The mix of acoustic guitar, raspy vocals, and even funky harmonica create a sound that makes you feel like you can take on the world. This album really seems like a collaborative party, as G.Love enlists the help of Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Blackalicious, and many more. The track with Jack Johnson is especially uplifting, starting with, “I woke up this morning, rainbow filled the sky. That was God telling me everything’s gonna be okay.” In the end, what sets Lemonade apart, is the rapping sections. When G. Love lays down flows over piano percussion and guitar, like on “Banger”, everything just falls into place.
