The First Impression series is where we review new albums in just one take. Going track-by-track, we break down the entire project and rate it because we all know first impressions mean everything.

Lil Nas X’s debut album, MONTERO, has arrived and the deeply personal, sexual awakening, playing out for fans across the globe, doesn’t just feel triumphant, it feels like the artist was able to tap into his most vulnerable inner conversations to deliver a new Pop mainstay.
