5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing. April 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I recently went to the Atmosphere concert and got a chance to here POS and Grayskul open up for Slug and Mr. Dibbs. Now I was pretty drunk during the concert, so I didn't move around a whole lot, but man, even in my drunken stupor, I was just amazed. POS definitely opened the show up with a bang, but I just had to cop this album once I heard them rhyming. I mean, damn, it was nice. They were selling Deadlivers and I hoped on the opportunity to get it. They were nice, autographed my cd, talked to me for a bit. Well, now that I've listened to the whole cd, man, I am amazed. I really loved how they ended the cd with a bang, with Secret Wars as the last song clocking in at 7:48. 17 mc's doing there thing, 15 from Old Dominion, then the 2 from Grayskul. One should not have been in there, the dude that was just rambling and not flowing. But it was nice. I loved hearing Canibus, or aka Punisher, flowing. Man, I love how he's been with some great underground groups, JMT, ect. Mr. Lif held his own, and even though I'm not an Aesop Rock fan, he did a good job on here. All I have to say is this is a must have album, great group, great beats, great lyrics. Hopefully they'll get recognized but stay underground like Atmosphere. This is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grayskul Deadlivers some Good Hip-Hop December 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I brought this album a few months ago and I have been enjoying it a lot, it's full of dope ass rhymes and beats. But I recently brought Babbletron a few day ago and notice these Grayskul cats sound exactly like them. I'm not saying these guys are biting, I just notice a striking resemblance.

But nuff of that, Deadlivers is a nice CD. I like all the guest appearance on this album. Everyone holds their own while holding Grayskul down. The tracks that stand out to me are Action Figure Of Speech, Voltronic Instructional Espionage with Aesop Rock (a favorite track), Once Upon A Time, Do They Exist (another favorite), Cursive with Mr. Lif, Vixen, and Prom Quiz (the track that introduced me to Grayskul). The only track I was not feeling much was The Skul due to the chorus is some man yelling the hook over and over like a hard rock joint.

If you're into underground cats making a difference in this culture turn Pop, Grayskul is a refreshing CD to pick up. It's full of energy, tight flows, beats and guest appearances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deadlivers July 12, 2005
By Exxxxx
Format:Audio CD
I'm really feeling this album. I'm not sure what made me pick it up other than seeing Aes Rock had a guest spot on it. But either way i'm damn glad I bought this. I'm not really familiar with the Oldominion crew, but I'm definitley going to be checking into them a little more after hearing Deadlivers. The flows are fierce and frantic, and the real plus about this album is the amazing production. Someone said something to the effect of the beats being bland or something like that in their review, but I definitley disagree with that. This album is very dope and you'd be wise to peep it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars These seasoned veterans are straight illin' May 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of my local hip-hop scene, Rhymesayers. So I decided to pick up "Deadlivers". My first thought was - This is a debut? No way, these guys sound like they've been rapping for 10 years. Needless to say, I wasn't too surprised when I read that they are seasoned veterans. I saw these guys perform with Atmosphere and P.O.S. about a week ago in Minneapolis. It was a phenomenal show. Reason, Recluse and Phantom Ghost El Topo work great together. Their timing is air tight, and their flow is very impressive. You can tell that the 5 years they spent touring before releasing this album really helped in the studio.

They've obviously impressed their peers while touring with Definitive Jux and the Rhymesayers crew. The album features collaborations with Aesop Rock, Mr. Lif and Canibus. The beats are pretty simple for the most part. They have to be in a way. Three emcees rapping with lightning quick speed and precision should be the focus of your attention, so it works pretty well. There are a few points in the album when the formula feels like it's getting a bit repetitive, but something always comes along to save it; like a collaborative effort, or a "brighter" beat. But amazingly, it's very solid through and through. Some of my favorites are "Behold," "Adversarial Theatre Of Justice" featuring Canibus, "Voltronic Instructional Espionage" featuring Aesop Rock, "Once Upon A Time," "Cursive" featuring Mr. Lif, "Vixen," "The Skul" (fast rapping here), "Prom Quiz," and my favorite as of now "Secret Wars" feat. Oldominion.

Overall, there isn't many bad things to say about the album. It truly is amazing, how two emcees can spit rhymes back and forth with such precision. It's not the most revolutionary album of the year, but it's certainly an impressive listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never too late for a reveiw December 23, 2012
By MDH
Format:Audio CD
Why Five stars? - I generally reserved for a five star rating for albums I rarely skip a track on, this is one of those albums.
I picked up this album after watching them perform back in 2006, I needed more than just their set. It was worth the buy, I had this album on repeat for several months. Rhymesayers has a stable talented under the radar artists, these guys fall into that category. Their vocals, lyrics and beats are on point and this album is actually going back in my regular rotation. The album has a dark, somewhat heavy feel that stems from both the thick bass lines and deep vocals. The lyrics are entertaining and almost each track tells a story. If you like hip-hop with lyrics that aren't about the superficial cash, cars, and the like you should check this album out.
