Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Following upon the success of 'The Colossus', RJD2 returns with 'Inversions of the Colossus', a companion piece of its own unique nature. The 'instrumental'
album is a time honored tradition in hip-hop that RJD2 has taken advantage of whenever possible-without an instrumental version of 'Magnificent City', there would be no MAD MEN theme! However, 'Inversions' is a new twist on the idea: in essence, all 7 of the vocal songs on 'The Colossus' appear here sans vocals. The remainder of the album is made up of 7 new songs- 14 tracks in all! Ranging from banging dance floor funk to extreme psychedelia, it follows a similar 'no format' approach as 'The Colossus' did. Yet another solid collection of classic RJD2.

Review

The Colossus should remind everyone how talented DJ-producer Ramble John Krohn was before he crafted the award winning Mad Men theme. It's his finest album since 2002's instrumental hip-hop classic 'Deadringer', balanching puncy funk ('Let There Be Horns') with soul ballads ('Games You Can Win,' featuring pensive vocals from Kenna). --Spin

The Colossus hopscotches across RJD2's resume like a giddy kid...Krohn's the real deal, in a world full of one-dimensional derivatives. --Filter

The dude's hard to top for tough-as-nails, superior grade cinematic funk, deft detours down dark corridors, bits of biting wit and here and there, 'The Shining Path,' for instance, a surprisingly tender side. --Rupert Bottenberg, Montreal Mirror

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album was purchased with the sole purpose of recommendations of snippets from that great radio-free music of Pandora. I liked RJD2, and some of his music, so I decided to dive into a purchase. Caveat Emptor, buyer beware.

The music is moody, sort of like elevator music, all mood no substance. Just music to soothe, with soothing backbeats and moody music. The intro (my fave),'The Perfect Occasion' is a rousing song, reminiscent of The Art of Noise's "Beatbox", with that powerful bass line and booming backbeat, along with great synth horns. Alas, I was found wanting for good music, only to be bored and ticked off for spending $6 for my CD. The only bright spots, "In 3's", with fab vocals, humming to the music; "A Son's Cycle", and "Gypsy Caravan".

If you like RJD2, you're going to like this album. It's the instrumental version/remixes off of the Colossus album but it stands alone as far as I'm concerned. I may be somewhat biased as I love RJ, but if you like electronic music with fresh beats then this is for you. It also comes with a free MP3 download from RJ's Electrical Connections, so that's an added bonus!
