5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on first listen October 9, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'll admit, I'm a new fan, but I'm completely hooked.

Last week, two different friends shared the hooky "Thrift Shop" and heartfelt "Same Love" and either one alone might not have been enough for me to look into the rest of their tracks, but combined, I was intrigued enough to figure out what this guy was about. From there, the counter-culture-of-consumption messages in "Wing$" and hometown pride in "My Oh My" hit me and I was a confirmed fan. "Can't Hold Us" is addictive. I want to play "Starting Over" for everyone I know who's ever stumbled.

I was excited not just to listen to the album all the way through, but to pay money for it and hope Macklemore and Ryan Lewis get to keep making a living doing what they love for a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware! You are purchasing the CENSORED VERSION October 10, 2012
By Taylor
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is fantastic. But I feel completely cheated by Amazon because nothing on this page indicated that I was purchasing the watered down, edited version of this album. Make sure you order the version called The Heist [Explicit] if you want to hear all of the songs in the form they were intended to be heard.

Too much rap today is repetitive, narcissistic, inane, untruthful. Where is the edge? Where is the story telling? Where is the truth? (Even in the 2pac era, rapping about money was really about the *desire* for power and money at a time when such things were inaccessible to black youth, and seemed to be intended as a stark contrast to the crack epidemic that was decimating inner city neighborhoods. The 'money' story line is now 20 years old, and has morphed to become less relevant, less truthful, more vain, more narcissistic, and boringly ubiquitous.). Maybe I had just outgrown rap....

Enter the Heist. I was sent a link to the NPR "Tiny Desk" concert performed by Macklemore and was blown away. Here was Macklemore challenging the homophobic culture of hip hop, while examining his own assumptions about what it meant to be gay. In the next song challenging the narrative about money by professing his love for "your Grandpa's clothes" that he could pick up in a thrift shop. (About designer t-shirts: "That shirt's hella dough; And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't!") Story telling! An edge! Something novel! Hallelujah!

The message is all well and good, but to be honest I probably wouldn't have made it that far if the music didn't sound good. But it does. Banging bass. Melody. Great vocals. A trumpet loads the songs with energy; the songs are interlaced with samples from '90s era hip hop. The songs actually progress and develop. Macklemore changes his tempo and phrasing. Good stuff.

My best advice: Check out Macklemore's 'NPR Tiny Desk' concert. If you're not blown away, then this isn't the CD for you. And.... I'm not sure you're a fan of the best that rap can be.

Macklemore is the next rap star in the making. In a way, a throwback. But also an evolution. And just in time.

5.0 out of 5 stars hiphop that trascends October 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Transcends what? Age, race, socioeconomic class, you pick. It doesn't get much better than this... incredibly solid flow, amazing production and a strange kind of synergy that's hard to explain. It really feels like these two are going to end up being one of *those* partnerships where something magic happens when they work together; RL's production is innovative, and full of risks that pay off over and over, and most importantly, it feels like M's voice and flow were specially engineered to fit these beats. There's a line (a great line) in one of the songs that laments how Otherside (a previously released, amazing song) wasn't written by M it was "written by God." He may not be able to see it yet, but I have a feeling that in five years from now some of these songs are going to seem that same way to him..

5.0 out of 5 stars A Box with Generation Changing Potential October 9, 2012
By Kyle
Format:Audio CD
I am a college student, and being tight for money I do not buy anything I don't need. With that said, I pre-ordered this CD in early September and have been waiting for it since. It is the first physical CD I have bought in my life, and I am proud of that fact. Macklemore (real name Ben Haggerty) has continually evolved, but kept true to his poetic roots such as "The End" from the Language of My World Album. He is making huge gains not only in the hip hop/rap world, but by allowing strong social commentary to be passed to our younger generations (such as college students)that wouldn't otherwise reach us. I have been following him since 2010 when I was first introduced to him, and I have seen him go from "Macklemore? Who is that? to "Oh yea, I recognize him" to "THRIFT SHOP LOVE THIS SONG BRO!" He is gaining popularity by the second. His music continues to be deep, making commentary about materialism (wings), appearance and stereotypes, freedom of choice (including gay marriage obviously with same love, and many other current day issues that should be addressed in music. His music is catchy enough for people to want to listen to, and advanced and complex enough to keep people listening rather than just being a party jam. The album itself is absolutely spectacular, and you can see the effort Ben and Ryan put into the album, as well as the effort they put into their personal lives with songs such as Thin Line. This inspiring story of rising up in the hip hop world contrasts his earlier albums where he talks about a lot of drug problems (otherside)and obstacles that he had to overcome to pursue his dream. The music has catchy songs such as Can't Hold Us, Thrift Shop, slower simpler songs like Same Love and Neon Cathedral, and takes oldschool music influences and creates a newschool sound. Read more ›
