As point man for the Minneapolis-based Rhymesayers crew, Atmosphere MC Slug put heartland hip-hop on the map. Likewise, he's always written from the heart, and Seven's Travels--the fourth Atmosphere full-length, and first released under a licensing agreement with the venerable punk imprint Epitaph--finds that agenda unchanged. Though familiar antagonist Lucy Ford appears only once, these tracks are packed with passionate meditations on typical topics, pitting confidence against recrimination, parenthood against partying, joy against anger, love against sex. And while Slug spills his guts in the spotlight, the stage isn't his alone; from the neck-snapping beats of "Trying to Find A Balance" to the cartoonish suspense theme of "Gotta Lotta Walls" and the naked acoustic guitar behind "Always Coming Back Home to You," Seven's Travels features some of Ant's most adventurous and assured production, plus contributions from Mr. Dibbs and Brother Ali, whose scorched-earth verses drive "Cats Van Bags." --Anders Smith Lindall

In a time like this, when you turn on MTV or VH1, or flip through your favorite music magazine, maybe Rolling Stone or Spin, and see the choices of popular hip-hop/rap groups that are forced down your throat at nausea; you may feel disgusted at what rap has become since the early 90s. Lets take the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards for example. The nominees included: 50 cent ft. Snoop Dogg & G-Unit, D12 & Ammonium, Jay-Z, Lil Jon & The Eastside Boys, Ludacris, Black Eyed Peas, Chingy, Nelly, Outkast and Kanye West. This list was nearly enough to make me gag, aside from Outkast and maybe Black Eyed Peas. MTV has proved to me that the glory days of conscious songwriters in popular hip-hop music are long gone. I'm just so embarrassed for the people that listen to this crap. I tell people I'm a fan of hip-hop music, and they automatically assume I like the crap mentioned above. Maybe I need to be more specific. I'm a fan of old school hip-hop, underground rap and the entire Rhymesayers crew. As far as I'm concerned, the underground is all that is keeping this genre alive and kicking.

I was introduced to "Seven's Travels" from a friend of mine. I was pleasantly surprised with the first track, "Trying To Find A Balance". From there on, it was just realization after realization about how good this album actually is. "Slug" is one of the best vocalists I've heard in several years. His lyrics are so down to earth, charismatic, and vulnerable. Atmosphere could have went with a larger label, since they have exploded in the underground in the past couple of years. I'm happy to see them stick with Epitaph, one of my favorite labels. Besides, several of these songs convey messages about how corporate labels suck ("National Disgrace").

I got into Atmosphere with the "God Loves Ugly" album, and then got hooked on their eariler stuff. "Seven's Travels" is not as good as those. While I really LOVE some of the songs, the rest are hard to listen to. I definitely can't listen to the CD straight through. If you're a fan of Atmosphere, check it out. If not, check some some early stuff first.

The new album from Ant&Slug (aka Atmosphere),Sevens Travels, is SICK! they killed this album. The lyrics are one of a kind just like the beats. Probably the most popular song on the album is "Trying to Find a Balance" this would be the one everyones been seeing on MTV2. Now anyone who thinks hes selling out...shut your mouth! hes still writting his own material, making his own beats. He's just trying to make sum cash for his kid!! HES NOT SELLING OUT! To anyone that likes up-beat hip-hop or some deeper meaning hip-hop, i HIGHLY recommend Sevens Travels. He throws sum humor into his lyrics with songs like "Shoes", "National Disgrace" My Favorites are: Trying to find a balance, reflections, gotta lotta walls, cats van bags, los angeles, shoes, national disgrace, always coming back home to you...so buy it and enjoy and i can GURANTEE that anyone who hears it will love it! peace!

Reading other reviews regarding this album, it becomes painfully obvious that there are only two negative opinions of Seven's Travels. The first being that Atmosphere has essentially sold out because they have a video on MTV and they don't sound exactly like they did on "Overcast", the other being that Slug can't possibly considered a hip-hop artist due to the fact that he's from Minnesota (and proud of it, Check out "Always Coming Back Home to You"), he's white, and the record was distributed on a punk label, Epitaph. Set the record straight: You don't need to be "oppressed" or from a popular hip-hop region to make good music. If you wan't to call it "punk-hop", go right ahead. At least Slug isn't relying on make-believe "beefs" and lyrics about wristwatches and champagne to sell records. Go ahead and check out their other stuff, too. Then again, if you're angry that a white boy from the midwest can make a record that even Chuck D. is impressed by, go ahead and be angry. Check out "Reflections, Trying to Find a Balance", "Gotta Lotta Walls", "Shoes", and "Sick Pimpin". If you don't like it, go listen to non "punk-hop" all stars like Ja Rule, 50 Cent, Kayne West, and the rest of the studio gangsters that some of you detractors must absolutely love. This is simply good music.

in response to some idiots review saying that this album isnt good because it doesnt focus on issues like urban living and racial inequalities, SLUG IS A WHITE GUY FROM MINNESOTA. So of course he is going to relate to white suburbia, and he becomes one of the first sick MCs to do this. he is not afraid to say anything, including his personal life, he even raps a song in the SECOND person, dont think thats ever been done before. This is the best underground rap there is, i just hope that popularity doesnt cause atmosphere to lose its edge. and to the moron who says rappers should embrace the race card, too bad johnnie cochrane isnt a rapper.

Ok... i've read every single review of this cd... and all i can say is its obvious as to who has really listened to everything that atmosphere has to offer... and who listens to this guy on a weekend basis or when they want to seem "real" and intellectual...Atmosphere has been around for a long time... and true his CD's GLU, LF and OC are incredibly geniune are CD's of there own type... but theres the key word... GENUINE!!! That means that they are ONE OF A KIND... so stop trying to compare this CD with the others... now... for my review...

Atmosphere over the ages has evolved from the raw and talented MC to a more intellectual and enduring one (this is not to say that he's not talented and raw in thoughts because he will always be that)... Though the story telling feats that he does so well in his other CD's isn't on this one as much as we would all like.. who's to say that he's stepped down... the songs Lifter Puller, Always coming back home to you, Los Angeles and Bird Sings Why The Caged Bird I Know all have that descriptive and metephorical sense that Sean does extremely well... and from talking about sex and love(Lifter Puller) to what his music is transforming into(Trying to Find a Balance)to how people react to his music and what they think of it (Cats Vans Bags) Seans use of words is unprecidented and poetic... all deep and full of meaning from level to another...

Ant once again does his magic so effortlessly yet sophisticated as well with the beats, kicks, snares, pianos, violens, and short but well used vocals throughout the entire cd... Los Angeles is one of the best beats to listen to, along with Lifter Puller, National Digrace (really good to whistle to :-)), Good Times (Sick Pimpin) and the much acclaimed Always Coming Home To You...
