Editorial Reviews

Busdriver's Beaus$Eros is an about face on the suggested path for modern indie rap music. Fueled by a dissolving sense of allegiance to any one genre, Beaus$Eros could be mistaken for a Genesis album re-imagined by LA Beat scene producers. Guest appearances by Sierra Cassidy of CocoRosie & more!

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews for this amazing album. This technically, save for a few songs, isn't really hip hop but more avant-garde/electronic pop, but in full force. Working with multiple producers has always made each Bus album exciting and you know you'll always get something different on every song. This time, however, producer Loden has helped shape an incredibly cohesive album, who deserves equal credit for creating beautiful, melodic, pulsing rhythms for Bus to sing over. Busdriver's lyrics are still the most absurd, biting and self-loathing rhymes out there and his honesty is what makes all of his records so endearing and relatable, no matter how weird or abstract he gets. Not only one of Busdriver's best albums but also one of the best albums of 2012. Oh and if the universe is fair, the song "Kiss Me Back to Life" will become a hit.

Its refreshing to come across an artist who truly seems to be doing what he wants to do, and being himself in the most creative sense possible. For most artists, we only witness this on their first album, when the artist is independent and no one is looking, and their last album when they try to be independent even after everyone is looking (often to crash-and-burn results).

When Busdriver dropped Roadkill Overcoat, many fans and critics panned the album as less lyrically dense, a failed effort at pop, less ambitious, and more lazy. That is an absurd notion, if you can cut the album away from Busdriver's discography and hold it up against the bigger picture of the synth-pop and abstract hip-hop that he most wants to be associated with. Because, personally I don't prefer the lightning-fast raps set to hyper jazz. I appreciate that mode and I think he proved something incredible, but I love his pop and electronic sides, and I don't know how many times he has to rap the note-for-note equivalent of "Flight of the Bumblebee" before people will let him move on.

One issue I think that is holding some back is the way the beat generation cross-pollinated the worlds of jazz and poetry, and the fact that Busdriver gets associated with the whole West Coast spoken word scene. I hope someone can explain to me why. Regardless, Roadkill Overcoat took me from a casual appreciation of Busdriver to a full-blown enthusiast. The second I heard it, I was immensely grateful to hear practically every musical movement that I hold dear combined into a singular album. Just the notion of trying that was enough for me, regardless of the fact that he totally pulled it off and even made it catchy.

I think Busdriver really likes Animal Collective, which is fine, but I wish it didn't show so much on this record. At points, it is a little lyrically boring, but I'd say it is still worth a listen. "Bon Bon Fire" and "Kiss Me Back to Life" are really solid tracks.

Too Bright/happy! Where are the chops..the deep/dope beats..the vibes.. the dope LA styles?. If U loved Temporary Forever & Fear of a Black Tangeant-DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ALBUM. I love the LA Underground but wtf is happening to the progression of Freshness? Everything new by everyone: Aceyalone, Awol, Atmos, Busdrive, Aesop Rock.. SUCKS. .It truly breaks my heart. Aloha
