Soulful, conceptual, concise, and smooth ‘Point Five’ delivers at the highest level an EP profusely packed with personality. Geno Five teams up with Alejandro for a full project that flows conceptually and sonically, literally starting with ‘Gettin Familiar’ to ‘Gettin Hurt’ and every other phase in between. Geno Five’s signature multi-level metaphors and subtle lines are on full display as well as soulful harmonizing and a sung delivery on smooth sample chopped soul beats worthy of both bars and soul ballad bellowing. ‘Gettin Thru It’ finds Geno severely introspective, open and baring it all detailing personal tragedy and despair while maintaining optimism. ‘(Never) Going Back’ is beautifully ironic in the fact that each beat switch warrants an immediate repeat, each leg of the song expands to an even more soulful and heartfelt piece of the puzzle, once the trilogy is complete a complete song-restart is a necessity. ‘Point Five’ in it’s entirety is a time capsule to an era when creating a classic was a benchmark, the formula of one producer and one artist, complete realization of a concept, and skits further tying together ideas and subject matter- ‘Point Five’ has all the makings of a modern classic presented in 20 minutes.
