Spin called them "brilliant, dumb, and entertaining." I would have to say I agree with each of those terms, to a certain extent. But, I do continue to dial it up on Spotify, so it must be the "entertainment" factor. I definitely like the charm of "Rainbow in the Dark," as it starts with some funny White Castle banter. Also, "Michael Jackson" is growing on me. I like that beat, and the hook, I just don't understand the concept? Is it a hit on MJ, or props? Maybe that's the "dumbness" of Das Racist. The "brilliant" comes in flashes at times during "Relax" (ft. Despot), and "Power" (ft. Despot). Maybe Despot needs a permanent role. Either way, there is something fun and compelling about this release. Will it stand the test of time? I am not sure. But if they continue on, I think the future holds good things for these guys.
