After a slew of notable singles among them two or three legit hits, rap group ALLMO$T accomplishes a group milestone with the release of their first full length album entitled “This Is Us.”
The album comes after ALLMO$T spent the last year being prolific. Starting with the viral hit “Dalaga” that turned the rap group into mainstream darlings almost overnight. Then came the singles “Miracle Nights,” “Bagay Tayo,” “Heart React,” and “Social Media Damn,” that proved that the quartet of rappers Crakky and Russell and singers Jom and Clien aren’t just a flash-in-the-pan act.
Dropping singles comes easy for ALLMO$T, in fact, just a few weeks before the release of their first full length album (last May 22, 2020), the group released a brand new original single entitled “Pagsubok,” an old-school styled R&B cum rap number that saw the group dishing out a tune out of their usual with ease.
That’s why it’s easy to see that on their first-ever album, ALLMO$T’s confidence is at an all-time high as they dispense close to a dozen new original tracks. Kicking off with the R&B-flavored mid-tempo opening track “Gap,” and the party starter “Lagi Kang Kasama.”
Still on their early-to-mid-twenties, the themes on ALLMO$T’s new album reflect their outlook on relations, which to date has been their go-to topics of their songs. Their preoccupations are right there on the song titles: from “Rebound” to “Magkasundo.”
Deeper into the album we find that ALLMO$T has upped their game on tracks like the faux-funk and chill of “Dito Ka Na Lang.” They ditch their Hiphop identities for a bit on the excellent rap-rock-R&B amalgam of “Space.” Then they turn playful on the cutesy ditty that is “Manantili.”
But they are at their best when they have their default Hiphop mode on as tracks like “Missed Call” and the R&B-leaning “Tampo” stand out. Allmo$t closes their first album with a reprise of their career-making viral hit “Dalaga” on “Ikaw.” In all, a solid effort for a group that’s just getting started.
ALLMO$T is produced by Peso Productions and is released by Viva Records. “This Is Us” is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and all other digital music platforms.
