I enjoyed this one. Apathy sounds great and the beats are all good/great- besides the opener (not feeling the sampling and those keyboard/guitar stabs) and maybe the smashing pumpkins chop job that just sounds a little too corny the more I listen to it. But overall, I'm happy with the purchase. I would give it 3 and a half stars.

I'll skip the opener, and the the filler before the last track .This collection would have been much tighter leaving off the relatively pointless and generic tracks 9-11. I'm left with a nice EP worth of tight new apathy material, and a couple decent b-sides. A little pricey for a solid 8 tracks, but Ap is a cool dude.

The beats are phenomenal. What he chose to sample is fantastic from the sax man parody videos in Martha Moxley to smashing pumpkins zero in underground chick. He relates the well known subject matter of the Kennedys to his own life in a way a lot of people can identify with. I listened through a few times and each time heard something new and I'm sure it will be like that for awhile lol. A good buy for sure.

"Connecticut Casual", originally designed to be an EP, but evolved into an album, and honestly I'm glad it did. This whole album has a very different feel from any of his albums in the past. He was right when he called it an album for the summer. With this album, you can definitely tell that Apathy has gotten even better with production, as he produced over half the album on his own. Now let's jump into the album.

Connecticut Casual- Let's just say I was not expecting that RHCP sample. That was a great way to open up the album, showing his love for his state, etc. Da Beatminerz really hooked him up with this beat and wow, I think it might be even better than the "Peace Connecticut" beat. Ap also shouts out my town L.A. in this track! This track is a straight banger and this is definitely a stand out.

Back In New England (ft. Chris Webby)- Just from the title, I could tell this would be a track that I wouldn't be able to relate to as much. I'm from Cali, never been to New England, or CT for that matter, but in all honesty it doesn't matter. The beat is very dope, and the flow is great. One of my lesser favorite cuts on the album because I couldn't relate to it as much, but I have a feeling that people from CT love this joint.

Don't Give Up The Ship (ft. Kappa Gamma)- So, this is the first joint with Kappa Gamma. Never heard of this dude until this album, and wow, I honestly love this dude's hooks. First off, this story is incredibly dope, the whole concept of pirates, gold, snitching, rum, maps, ships, etc. is very dope and shows that Ap is putting his pen work to the test. "Pieces of a ripped up map fit like jigsaws"... One of Apathy's best concept tracks to date. He nailed the concept on this one.

With his 4th official solo album (released 6/3/14), Apathy once again delivers for his fans with ‘Connecticut Casual.’ For those who aren’t too familiar with Apathy’s resume in detail, and the lane he’s created in the game, I would advise you to do your homework and get familiar. Since his debut release ‘Eastern Philosophy‘ in 2006, Apathy has very well certified himself as a successful solo artist. Lots of his early stripes as a producer can be accredited to the Demigodz ; originally consisting of emcees Open Mic and Reflective. Wits lots of record label shifts, bounce backs, and member changes, Apathy remained consistent as a renowned producer and emcee.

The album opens up with “Connecticut Casual” carrying a low tempo sample of Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ hit “Under The Bridge.” Appropriately enough, the track touches broadly on issues like crime, social dysfunction, and the effects that drugs have on Connecticut, and society in general. The album takes you through multiple layers of different areas, and really paints a vivid picture of the light and the darkness in Connecticut/New England. Some tracks are more direct (“Money Makes the World Go Round” / “Back in New England”) and some are rather abstractly depicted with Apathy’s ninja star lyrics. In terms of content, Apathy has zero struggle with getting his point or story across to the fans. Direct is a good word to describe this album, and his stern convincing voice only contributes more to this characteristic.

Did we mention production value yet? Top notch. Apathy is all over this project – aside from his lyrical mastery. A wide range of sounds and emotions are offered on ‘Connecticut Casual’. Tracks like “Don’t Give Up The Ship” and “Money Makes the World Go Round” are reminiscent of that 90′s mellow boom-bap sound.

This is a very solid release from Apathy. I have only two major issues with it--actually, two tracks, specifically. "Don't Give Up the Ship" seems to rip off Wax Tailor's "Que Sera," but I'm not sure if they just coincidentally happened to sample the same record. Also, "Money Makes the World Go Around" is way too sleepy of a track for the feel of the rest of the album, it feels out of place and has a terrible hook.

Those two issues aside, the rest of this album is either completely solid or outstanding. "Underground Chick" (that Smashing Pumpkins sample is filthy) and "The Grand Leveler" are definitely the highlights on the production side. "Back In New England" has the most personality, paying a vivid homage to Apathy's home town (and a surprisingly decent verse from Chris Webby). "Martha Moxley" is a strangely awesome spin off a George Michael "Careless Whisper" sample. It works. "The Grass Ain't Greener" is another highlight and probably one of the most accessible tracks. Best guest feature: A. Noyd on "Locals Only," also another great 90's-vibe track.

If this album had been two tracks shorter (or two tracks different), it would probably be worthy of five stars. Honestly, the quality on the rest of the ten tracks here surpassed my expectations and Apathy has proven once again he's still relevant and growing as an artist. I really feel like Connecticut Casual may be one of his best albums lyrically, and the production is definitely up there as well (though a couple feel just a little unpolished, like the Red Hot Chili Peppers sample on the opening track). This one is definitely worth buying, don't pass it up.
