The Boy vs. The Cynic shows a level of maturity and growth from John Reuben that we haven't seen before. In this album, there are virtually little to no loops or beats, everything is organic insturments. The album manages to balance out fun childish songs (the boy part of the album title,) and darker, mature, and harder songs to listen to. (The Cynic.)
It's a very daring step that John Reuben is taking his music in this album but it's a very good step to take. After 3 albums of fun hip hop beats, something more down to earth is a welcome change to me.
