Traveling up the coast from Venice to the celebratory last stop of Ventura, the fourth studio album from Anderson .Paak closes a chapter of his acclaimed beach city saga and is the missing piece in a rightful homecoming. Only months apart from the waves of his last full-length, Oxnard—which was written and recorded simultaneously—Paak’s sheen dealt with success but relied too much on production. Noted by the artist as a celebration of life, and also as a “love letter” to Paak’s wife, Ventura sees the rise, fall, love, heartache, and unconditional aroma of not going through the journey alone, picking up from where Malibu left us three years ago.

Upon the grace of the last album, the bigger picture wasn’t seen. Just like the dot that acquires the attention and worth of the artist, nothing less could be expected from Paak than detail. Capturing different aesthetics and mindsets of the beach cities, Paak’s timing is perfect and smooths over any mixed feelings from his last release, immediately felt by the singles King James and Make It Better. Consequently, Ventura not only fits in Paak’s collection, but stands alone for its memorable and timeless feeling. Oxnard also now makes sense. – No Rip Cord
