TRACK REVIEW: KRAiG DiEL – All I Ever Did | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed

A brisk and pristine slab of trap-pop bearing all the classic hallmarks of the genre: crystalline beats, immaculate hooks and a bitter narrative ripped straight from the Weeknd/Drake playbook. On a surface level, KRAiG DiEL’s All I Ever Did sounds precision-engineered for the Top 40 with some genuinely phenomenal production that is mixed to perfection.

However, the overall impact is let down somewhat by the often bitter and harsh lyricism; it’s clear that the target of All I Ever Did smashed his heart to smithereens, but the excruciating misogyny that is constantly on display just makes it impossible to really sympathise with DiEL’s laments, holding back the potential of what is otherwise a brilliant piece of pop songcraft.
