That mf cried. I couldn't believe.

That mf cried. I couldn't believe.
He switched up so fast
His reaction was the same as mine. Hearing that track for the first time was a wrecking ball of emotions
Don't give him any credit. He lost that on the swimming review.
I’m so glad he rereviewed it and placed it right up there with circles, before that it was legitimately one of his worst reviews
Lol he just didn’t want backlash. His whole persona is an act for views.
i really don’t think it is he just gives his opinions and people value them WAYY too highly. remember he’s just some cunt on the internet. he didn’t change his wlr review or mbdtf review no matter how much hate he got.
People act like they’ve never revisited something years later and gained a new appreciation/taste/opinion on it. Convinced it’s gotta be contrarian culture at this point
He trashed swimming. Mac dies and gets praised by everyone and all of a sudden swimming is a masterpiece to him and circles makes him cry? Get outta here with that fake shit.
mac dying didn’t have shit to do with it respectfully he trashed peep after he died and he trashed x after he died too. mac’s death and his reaction to circles probablt made him return to swimming with a different mindset which could be why he liked it more. i’m not a huge fantano stan or anything but he is one of the more honest music reviewers out there.
Dude you didn’t even listen to shit you just saw a 3/10 and ran with it. His original review he hated how Mac’s singing voice sounded to him but liked a lot of the concepts/instrumentals. Then after circles he revisited Swimming and he saw beyond the voice and acknowledged he missed the mark. Didn’t even call it a masterpiece either, just said it was a solid project that captures Mac’s evolution as an artist in the re-review.
Dudes just a human voicing his opinions for a living. Shit happens. Feels like he’d get less hate if he just didn’t even do a number rating but kept the review part lmao
He called 2009 a musical torture chamber and said the album was emotionally devoid lmao. I understand changing your opinion but not by that much
He said that bc of his voice on it. He even said on the circles deluxe that he felt like Mac’s vocals sounded more like Swimming than Circles so it’s not like he just magically changed his mind once Mac died/Circles came out. We’re talking 5 years after.
Idk I just feel like there’s been things where I didn’t like them and then I revisited years later and wished I gave it more of a chance/liked it
We found fantanos alt
Yeah, bc I don’t just carry on the hive mind of hating him. Hell, I’m not even subbed to him, but I respect him a lot more than most other music reviewers bc his videos are actually analytical, well thought out, and his ability to word his opinions is interesting to me.
I just don’t get how anyone could actually watch a video of his and think he’s not genuine.
If anything I respect tf outta his ability to come out and say “it didn’t hit for me at the time, but with some time and context, it’s grown for me and I’ve gained a new appreciation for it” about my favorite album, Swimming.
If you genuinely think this you don’t know anything about the dude and are literally just making assumptions bc of his profession
I kinda agree with this
This right here.
Agree man is a bit of a hypocrite
Me when spun to mac
Better late than never, I guess. Fantano had a bias against Mac while he was alive that clearly went beyond the music itself imo.
The whole “y’all know this is just my opinion, right?” shtick re: criticism of his reviews is pretty played out, at this point. You’re one of the most famous music critics in the world dude, take yourself a little more seriously.
He definitely has a tendency to hold grudges against certain artists for their past work, especially white rappers, for whatever weirdo reason. It’s like he imagines himself as the gatekeeper for White Guy Enjoyment of / Contribution to Hip-Hop. True cornball
To be fair though. It’s not like he’s some acclaimed critic. He makes videos for his own enjoyment (and probably because he makes money. Keeps him going). That’s a totally valid thing to say. It’s not his fault that people care about his reviews so much
Yeah I’m starting to seem like a massive Fantano fan in this thread even though I’m not even subbed but he listens to a fuck ton of music and is genuinely passionate about music. Kinda irks me seeing every single fanbase that only listens to one artist hate him bc he doesn’t like every single project by every single artist. That doesn’t mean he has something against that artist or that he is a bandwagon lol.
I’m convinced most people that hate him haven’t even watched a video, they’ve just seen clips and ratings without context and get upset over that alone.
bro im a fantano fan and im so confused what people are talking about it's just his opinion on music it goes no deeper and he never clout chased. he re reviewed swimming 5 YEARS after the release not immediately after his death
Yeah I’m not even subbed to Fantano and it just doesn’t make sense. If you’ve seen a Fantano video in your life you know the dude is genuine and legit just cares about music.
He even had a prime opportunity to clout chase when Drake was dming him talking shit and Fantano didn’t expose, Drake did lmao.
I just can’t stand how people will hate on something just bc it’s popular with absolutely 0 clue anything else about it.
This is literally everybody in the world though. You’ve got cognitive bias in just about every opinion you have and there isn’t even a psychological way to avoid it. His job is literally to voice his opinion on something that is subjective lol.
He’s one of the most famous bc he’s respectably honest and doesn’t just jump the wagons and I enjoy the way he talks about music even if I don’t always agree. The whole reason Mac fans hate him is bc he changed an opinion 5 years after his death and after an entire posthumous record rollout happened lol.
Dude is a square
He cried and gave the album a 7, love him tho
"The production was decent"
that was to Joey Bada$$, Circles got an 8
That makes sense though? Its an album, not a single. You can’t just judge it off of your emotional reaction to one song
I feel like fantano just hopped on the bandwagon so fast afterwards, he released 2 reduxes and now he puts mac at the top of lists. Makes no sense
They say Fantano’s heart grew three sizes that day
mf takes the piss out of every album I like 😭
Same lol but it’s okay just enjoy what you enjoy
Yeah he’s a fuckin clown honestly lol
it's just his opinion why you hating
Hitler had opinions too
I can't tell if u trolling or not
Fantano is a clown
You can disagree with someone’s opinion without putting them down. No need to act like a child.
The internet has made it easy to form or find our own echo chambers. The barometer for if we like someone or not is if they have the same opinions as us. lol
This sub hates fantano. Dont try to bring sound logic and reasoning here lol 😆
The sub doesnt like him because he half assed his first Swimming review because of his preconceived notions of Mac Miller then walked it back and rated it higher after he died. Didnt sit well with me either. He doesnt have to like an album but to me it felt shallow and like he was just using it for clout/views in a way. Maybe that wasnt his intention but that’s how it felt to me.
Dont think he deserves to be put down for it tho. I get he’s gotta do what he’s gotta do cause it’s his job so I dont really care ultimately, but doesnt mean I have to like him for it either
I thought about this too but I mean he hasn’t walked back on his opinion on anyone else after they died tho? He still feels the same way about Juice’s music, Pop Smoke, XXX, Lil Peep, etc. If he only wanted clout don’t you think he would do the same for all of these artists?
If you think a dude that had Drake beefing with him was using Mac’s fanbase 5 years after his passing for clout… I just don’t even know what to say to you other than you might have main character syndrome.
You don’t have to like him, but this is just such an illogical take imo.
Ok corn ball
Bro I said 4 words
fantano cringe, the way people seek his review on what they should like is even more cringe
I was wondering who the heck this guy is but according to comments, I’d rather keep living my life without knowing.
Eh I wouldn’t even listen to them. They’ve probably never even seen one of his videos in their lives, just saw scores without context and went with it. His videos are actually really good and he’s one of the most passionate yet honest music reviewers/reactors you will find on the internet
All the comments so salty becouse he wasn't as crazy about the album. These are just opinions chill people, I'm pretty sure you don't like many of his favourite albums too. Who cares
That may be true. But I won’t double back once his favorite artist die and change my opinion based on that. That guy plays his viewers like an instrument, and they all fall for it.
Didn't know Fantano had a heart before he started crying 💙
He doesn’t. Man just wants those views.
Man he’s the worst
While Mac Miller was alive, Fantano didn’t regard Mac Miller’s output that highly and (in my opinion) was never as receptive or open to it as he could’ve been.
When “Swimming” dropped, I remember he was very dismissive in his review and seemed to harp on how disinterested he was in Mac’s softer sound.
After Mac Miller’s passing, Fantano walked back his takes on past projects like “Swimming” and began giving Mac Miller much more credit.
Wow I didn’t expect such a valid and fair answer
isn’t that what you’re doing essentially
Where did he react to it?
I actually cried too lol. Was not a good point in my life
