This Is Too Much is something of a pivot for AM da Meister. Like fellow Eight Immortal Akari, AM has grown from skilled boom-bap homage payer to a versatile songwriter unconfined by a single style or subgenre. Instead, there's a range of emotions and aesthetic flourishes on display here.
Mastery of one's craft unearths a breadth of possibility if not also a world of opportunity. Clocking in at just over 15 minutes between five songs, This Is Too Much is just enough to begin peeling back the layers of AM's tremendous potential.
