Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Real hip-hop from real artists September 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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").

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best, but still a good listen October 25, 2005
By Alana
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Se7ens Travels December 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding work, stop thinking about Atmosphere's fame October 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars these guys rule November 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
i am actually primarily a fan of punk rock, old school rock, electronic music, indy and yada yada.
the point is, just because I like those subgenres, it doesn't mean that i can't like something as great as this just because it falls under the stamp of "hip-hop"
it's just music. and what's more, it's good music.
I don't know what that girl from Chicago was going on about because DUH the Roots are much more mainstream than Atmosphere at this point in time anyway! She obviously doesn't know what she's talking about.
It seems she doesn't know much about this group's history either... because if she did, she would have a different story to tell.
As soon as I heard their latest single on MTV (WEEIIIRD), the last source I would have expected to pick their stuff up from, I knew I had to buy it!! :)
I usually get the latest from my friends or Treehouse Records
(MN REPRESENT!), but either way, I reccommend that you do yourself a favor and buy this album today.
I also highly recommend Overcast, Lucy Ford, two of my favorite albums.
Because regardless of whether you like that they are being played on MTV or not (commercialism central at it's absolute corporate worst), they deserve their success, as I have seen them struggle to balance things out for years trying just to make it in South Minneapolis. They were part "the soundtrack to our lives" back then. I remember seeing Slug and Eyedea freestyle about two years ago at First Ave. That was awesome. Anyway...
I know every lyric to Lucy Ford almost.. with that being said,
they deserve to be big with the genious that Slug spits.
Bigger than guns..
Bigger than cigarettes.
