The following is review of PUNCHNELLO’s deluxe single album, “LIME” and an overall rating and recommendation.
Title Track : LIME
As the first song off of the deluxe single, “Lime” is a song to groove to in terms of the instrumental, however the moment that Punchnello begins his rap, listeners will be enchanted. There is an air of simplicity to this track as it is not too bass-heavy compared to other artists. Punchnello’s flow is smooth that compliments his husky voice. Overall, this track is a great start to his deluxe single. This song is a great introduction to listeners who have not heard of Punchnello and his works.
Track 2: Corona (featuring Crush)
Similar to the first track, this song is upbeat and fresh that will have listeners grooving along to the song. With the featuring of Crush, both artists compliment each other, making a smooth track together. With the arrangement of the song, “Corona” is reminiscent of what Crush would release for himself. This is the only song from this deluxe single that has an accompanying music video were Crush also makes his appearance along with a surprise appearance of DEAN. The visuals of the music video match the funky sound of the song. This is another solid track from the album and with the featuring of Crush, listeners and fans will enjoy this track.
