5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Rapper Still Breathing February 7, 2005
By the_bg
Format:Audio CD
In the more watered-down present day rap environment of pop and screaming teenage white girls, here we have an artist with something to say and a fresh spin on how to say it. Why he isnt well known outside the midwest is beyond me, although I've gathered from some sources that his different image (ie red hair) scares some of the big players in the industry away.

If you're tired of CDs that use 40 of the possible 80 minutes or contain 10 skits and 10 tracks - then you'll find this a good buy. Tech fills roughly 78 minutes of the CD and has only a couple skits mixed in.

His beats range from furiously fast to quirky, which is a perfect mirror to his rapping style and lyrics. "Slacker" and "Slither" will provide some more mellow listening, "T9X" and "Industry is Punks" more of a powerful burst, and many others blending both elements.

The main theme of the CD revolves around his growing recognition and popularity since his last release - "Anghellic". It also contains a little bit of the "Why Arent I Famous" element - a good question.

Tech N9ne's big selling point is not just his lyrics, but his incredible flow. He is perhaps the best flowing rapper ever, and thats without losing any kind of vocal power (ie Krayzie Bone).

Filler Tracks? Nope. Tracks you'll repeatedly skip? Nope. This is a deep CD. Making it even deeper is Disc 2 - The DVD that comes with the CD. It contains music videos, extra tracks, concert footage, and other additional content. (If you ever have the chance to see Tech live - do it!)

Although Tech loses a bit of the emotion and meaning that came with Anghellic, he definately hasnt lost a bit of his style and originality. Buy this album now.

5.0 out of 5 stars this guy is amazing December 9, 2005
By caleb
Format:Audio CD
Tech N9ne is a breath of fresh air for fed up rap fans, such as myself. In an industry that's capitalized by over-used beats and weak lyrics, cough, 50 cent, cough, it's nice to hear someone with talent. His mood is dark and bleak, and his lyrics, speed, and flow are unmistakeable, and unparalelled. It's not fair that someone with this much talent isn't making the kind of money that mainstream rappers are, I guess he's too real and his lyrics are too raw for the American public. Underground artists such as Tech N9ne have more heart, because they rap for money, but more so for the love of rap. I apologize for interjecting my opinion into this review, but I think these guys need the recognition they deserve. Best songs are: Trapped in a Psychos Body, T9X, Worst Enemy, and Imma Tell(blisteringly fast rhymes), but all of the tracks on all of Tech's albums are good.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHECK THIS DUDE OUT December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I will say two things: 1) Tech N9ne's slept on and 2) he shouldn't be. This dude is sick. I've grown up to his music and I've never heard a bad song. Absolute Power is his first "mainstream" CD. It isn't actually mainstream, but it sounds more like it than his old stuff (which I recommend also). Anyway, Tech spits better than a lot of rappers nowadays and I really think you should check him out. ONE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tech N9ne - Absolute Power October 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After the critically acclaimed release, "Anghellic," Tech N9ne was looked at as a devil worshipper and a negative style rapper because of it. But instead of taking it to heart, Tech used it as motivation to release another certified banger with "Absolute Power." It was released in 2002 and includes the biggest hit of Tech's career with "I'm a Playa."

5 Stars

Tech finally delivered that classic album we all knew he had in him! Every track minus one is hard as ever with Techs crazy flow and lyrics, plus the production is top notch and great to blast in your whip. A must have for any Tech N9ne fan or fan of hip hop in general.
