5.0 out of 5 stars Centaurs and Drunkards April 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you are sick and tired of the same old "Puffed" up whack-wannabe-hip-hop ride the Centaur for a while. Buck is a legitimate poet. Whether he is describing his mythologically expansive parts, or describing a baseball game from his teen years, he is bending and carving his words like a master sculptor. I hadn't really heard any of Buck's work since his transition from "Stinkin' Rich", and quite honestly I was floored. This guy is the real deal. Just check-out the complexity of his beats. Damn! It's no wonder he has been bubbling at the surface for the past couple of years (i.e. teaming with Biz Markie to open for the Beasties, and butting heads with Doc Octagon, a.k.a. Kool Keith, to pump out the vinyl). A definite steal if you can get it! Look for The Greek (the drunkard) at the start of track six! Aum!----The Greek

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!! September 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Man-o-man! This was the first Buck 65 album I ever purchassed. I remember hearing some of his stuff late night on CBC Radio in Canada and thinking "what the fu_ is this??" I loved it right away. Needless to say I couldn't find anything on this guy. I checked out his website and even went to the underground record stores in the city and no one had it. Finally I found a copy of Vertex and on the cover was a crazy guy on the phone with a gas mask on. On the back was no track listings and just an ad for the distributor (Four ways to Rock - a b-boy doing a head spin).

So I'm thinking alright.... I get home and open the case to an all black cd. No booklet on the back of the album cover all it said was " artwork by some dude (can't remember his name - sorry) and everything else by Buck 65. To make a long story short Buck saved me. I had totally given up on hip hop (this was back in 99)Tribe was no more De La was quiet Outkast was cool but Buck came with it. Buck opened my ears to the likes of Anitcon etc. But still to this day he is my Hip-Hop hero. I met him in Ottawa before a show and told him all of this and he replied "Thanks Man, enjoy the show" So modest so cool so fresh so...get up off your ass and get it. It will blow you away

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Music January 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you are unfamiliar with the work of Buck 65, you should give this disk a listen, it is extremely compeling and thoughful music, that most everybody can appreciate. I have several friends who do not like most traditional hip-hop/rap, but are very entertained and intrigued by Buck 65. This is a great CD, but may take some time to grow on you. Totally Original, and very Artsy, a good snag for someone who wants to own some obscure music, and it doesnt get much more obscure than Nova Scocian Hip Hop, about baseball, centaurs, and sifting through garage sales for old records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genious: Pure Hip-Hop October 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
First off, I gotta say Buck 65 is a genious! A pure hip-hop hero! I've never heard of him till about a half year because I was into others styles of hip-hop music.
When I first heard 'Vertex' I couldn't believe my ears. It was a new dimension of hip-hop to me. It was a great adventure to listen to Buck's words and to get an acces to Buck mind. It was a mysterious but a great venture, too.
Buck's style, voice and lyrics captivated me from the first minute to the last. It was musically strange but very catchy. It is PURE hip-hopo at its best. Nothing commercial. It was intelligent, descriptive, original and creative. I felt in love with 'Vertex' at the first listening.
From the beginning to end it was a great pleasure to me. It ain't no day to me without Buck's music. Everyday I listen to 'Vertex'. I can't stop listening and analyzing it.
My favorite tracks are 'The Centaur', 'On All Fours', 'Sleep Apnoea', 'Supper at Sundown', 'Bachelor of Science' and 'In Every Dream House There Is a Heart Ache'.
But the rest of the CD is marvellous hip-hop at its best. This is the only CD amongst a few that I never press the skip button on.
Belive me and the other 7 reviewers because if you wanna hear pure, original and creative hip-hop without that bling-blinp bullcrap then HAVE Buck 65 'Vertex'.
Told: 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars BUCK 65~VERTEX October 24, 2002
By Kyle
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to Rich(buck 65) for years now. Finally he's with Warner Can. and they are reissuing all of his past work. Now with Vertex, It's the 2nd album in the Language Arts series and I would have to say that this album is the best album out of them all. He uses all aspects of hip hop(rappin', scratchin', beatmakin') and does it all himself. And it is dope. Well what would you expect from one of the 1200 hobo's. Anyway, Buck 65, hip hop hero, canadian, all around good guy. Peacers

5.0 out of 5 stars The One Man Circus June 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
With a most certainly original and innovative style, BUCK 65 has set a landmark in the underground hip-hop scene in the Midwest. Known as the one-man-circus, BUCK 65 is the writer, producer, DJ, performer, and mastermind behind his new album VERTEX. With a very grim, black and white array of sounds and intrumental, Buck sets a dark tone over each track, and each song progresses onward with strangly metaphorical, yet a very visual display of lyricism. This all combines into a unique form of expression, highlighting that simple thoughts and experiences can be shaped into an intense artform, which is hip-hop. It is perhaps in a transcending form with VERTEX, but not without direction. BUCK 65 has made his mark, with a growing name, and a force to be reckoned with.
