The most interesting thing about Turner Jackson's Star Destroyer is that Jackson appears to be doing everything he can here not to self-destruct. He exhibits a notable level of control in his delivery, in contrast to his typically flamboyant flow; there's a steady ebb and flow to his usually frenetically paced rhymes, along with a sense of knowledge informing his lyrics. Perhaps the most obvious growth can be heard on tracks like "Hold On" and "Black Holes." Producer Big J. Beats does his thing, matching Jackson's rhythm with his own conceptualized production, and it's extremely impressive, as is the entire project. Shine on.
