I never understood why people went cuckoo for Childish Gambino's 2010 album, Culdesac. It was enjoyable in parts, but it played like a loose collection of songs. To use a medium familiar to Donald Glover fans, it was akin to constructing a TV show around a season of nothing but pilots. By contrast, Camp is all plots and narratives. There's a central theme and the ideas are meatier. That's a good thing. And Camp is a very good album. Here's my $.02 on Childish Gambino's Glassnote debut, Camp.
