Like most things, hip-hop has gone through its cycles of what's hot in the mainstream. There used to be a time when conscious hip-hop was at the forefront as it challenged its listeners to step up, think for themselves, and change the world. Those days appear to have gone the way of the dinosaur, as many listeners struggle to find any sense of depth in their music. NomiS is one of a rare breed of emcees who is trying to buck the trend of rapping about nonsense & is intent on expanding your intellect.

Taking the title for his latest release from an episode of the 80′s cartoon the Transformers, NomiS attempts to take the listener on a journey through the cosmos searching for the elusive & mystical figure known as Alpha Trion. Outside of a few snippets from the episode that help to tie the project together, the cartoon references end there; instead, this album is more about searching for the real Alpha Trion, God the Creator. With those as the overarching theme, NomiS offers up a healthy dose of socially conscious hip-hop for the listener.

While Searching for Alpha Trion is a complete album, if we are going to talk about a project from a conscious emcee, then it's important to state that the greatness of this album begins & ends with the lyricism & depth of content that are delivered. When you look at the track list and see a total of seventeen tracks, you expect there to be some filler or interludes strewn in, but that is not the case here. Any interludes that you find, all of which are from the Transformers episode, are tacked on to the end of a track, and not a track unto themselves.
