If you enjoy golden era sounf hip hop like me then you will appreciate this. This sounds like some raw DITC sound that came out in the mid 90's which is so fresh to me. Just hit the download button and enjoy it like you should. Raw beats, raw rhymes what more can you ask for?

This was a decent album. I bought it expecting less and was surprised. I am glad to have it in my collection.

I do not understand what happened here, this album has all the elements that I would normally enjoy. Everything about Concrete Soul encompasses an old school feel, the sound of the golden era of hip hop (1990s). And after saying this, it just did not come together well and was not really interesting. Beneficence has a nice style, reminiscent of the 1990s but his flow is far from classic, lacking major smoothness, and his lyrical prowess is nothing special. Although the production is solid, that nice boom bap sound, it is repetitive, and the content is uninteresting. After you can add on the fact that it is 21 tracks. Technically sound album but...that's it.

I wanted to like this album, really I did. The production in the samples sounded good but once I really dove into this album and started listening my interest was peaked with the first few tracks and significantly dropped off afterward. Why? Well first off the beats are very repetitive. The instrumental loops the same sound for the entire song. If that didn't make sense let me break it down:

Say the beat goes boom bam bop, that boom bam bop will play for the entire 4 minutes or however long the song is. There are no highs, lows, changing the beat for the chorus or anything, just the same beat throughout. The majority of the rapping which was provided by Beneficence was boring to me. He reminds me of Guru as far as his monotone yet confident rapping style goes but he doesn't compare to Guru otherwise. I had to force myself to pay attention to what he was saying as he did not draw me in naturally.

What I could say about this album, then, is that it is not what I would call terrible like I would call much of the rap music you see on TV and hear on the radio, but it's doesn't have that entertainment factor is what I would have to say is missing. Let's be honest, despite what some people will tell you, music is to be enjoyed. If you can throw a message in there, fine, but if it's not fun or engaging, what is the point? That's why I feel this album is sub-par from that standpoint. 2.5 stars.

Side Note:'Cold Train' is the best song on the album in my opinion. If you want one song off the album, that is the one to get. I believe the title is a play on the late jazz musician, John Coltrane's name. The song features a jazzy, soulful hip hop fusion beat. Beneficence and his guest rapping isn't bad neither on that particular song.
