Editorial Reviews

The Visionaries now bring forth their most potent work on the aptly titled We Are The Ones (we've been waiting for). With a sharpened focus and revitalized approach, this album is their most personal and powerful piece to date, laced with confessional narratives, brutally honest reflections and self-discoveries backed by the trademark uplifting Visionaries sound. Features bangin' production from Visionaries producers KeyKool & DJ Rhettmatic, along with guest production from the late great Jay Dee aka J Dilla, Kev Brown, J-Rocc (Beat Junkies), DJ Khalil, Madlib, Polyhedron, and James Alsander. Other special guests include DJ Shorkut (Beat Junkies/Triple Threat), and an epic posse cut with legendary MC's: Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Brother J (X Clan), Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples), RBX (Tha Dogg Pound), and YZ .

5.0 out of 5 stars Visionaries - We Are The Ones (We've Been Waiting For) October 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Visionaries newest release We Are the Ones (We've Been Waiting For) is a must get for any true hip-hop head. With DJ Rhettmatic, 2Mex, LMNO, Dannu, KeyKool, and Lord Zen join together you CAN NOT go wrong! They have all proved their skills in their stellar soulow projects and past three releases together as a group in a whole.

I was happy to purchase the new release on the release date and I have been playing it since! Every song stands outs with awesome beats and lyrical content. The tracks I enjoy the most are All We Need, In The Good (SPRING VALLEY/San Diego, California gets some recognition in this joint, aha), All Right (J Dilla on the boards, a favorite), Do Gooders (with Georgia Anne Muldrow, another favorite with a nice beat, melody and flows), 1% (another favorite where the Visionaries are pulling wack MC's cards, Kev Brown on the boards), Lately (Music is a mission not a competition), The Moreye/Reprise (my second most favorite Cause you don't have to lose your soul to get that bank roll), School Daze (another favorite, everyone rips it on this track), Need To Learn (The posse cut with Madlib on the boards featuring Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples), Brother J (X-Clan), Sadat X (Brand Nubian), YZ and RBX, this by far is my favorite track, aggiN!!), Talkin' Handjive (showcases The Beat Junkies (DJ Rhettmatic & Shortcut) skills on the turntables) and finally the title track We Are The Ones ends the CD with you wanting MORE from Visionaries.

I like this effort as well as all their past efforts, cause Visionaries all shine equally on their albums and step the game up for all the other Wu-tang like crews and wack MC's! This album is by far better than anything that is mainstream and is worthy of radio airplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Visionaries bring light and enlightenment May 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Several months ago, I was a know-nothing-about-rap-and-hip-hop kind of gal. Whatever I had heard contained only words like booty, bitch, ho', unh, and skank. Not inclined to that particular brand of masochism, I did not know when, or if, I would find a contemporary rap or hip hop group that appealed to me.

But then I saw a video of The Visionaries for their song "Pangaea" on a tv station in Austin and I was enchanted. They spoke of all people having been come from the same place, and despite the seeming separations, we are all still One, United. They themselves are 6 shades of skin color. The song had good beats and hooks.

The first album of theirs that I purchased was Pangaea. It was so gratifying that all songs on the album are from the same feeling--striving, living, loving, and having purpose in one's life.

Next, I purchased the cd entitled, "We Are The Ones We've Been Waiting For" and am so pleased. I love The Visionaries.

They rock, simply. The positive message is above and beyond anything else going. Try out the samples and see, and then get it because you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars as good of an album as i've heard in a long time.... December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
reasons:

1) superior, focused, balanced lyrics from all 5 mc's. usually one or two mc's dominate in a group, but with this album, all 5 deliver.

2) excellent mixing and production. beats are widely varied and very innovative.

3) grown up and mature lyrical content. these 6 people are not afraid to show their true side and force us to accept/love them for who they really are. refreshing change of pace from the fake/poser rappers i have been required to listen to for the past dozen years.

4) nothing in the album is boring. tired of buying albums for only 2-3 songs.

5) attention to detail/dedication to a quality product. usually i hear albums where rappers go off beat or off topic....shows laziness. annoying to listen to someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. visionaries...always on point.

overall, i liked all songs. no complaints. truly a superior album.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love underground hip/hop, this is a must. October 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you love underground hip/hop, this is a must. I know that is another title of another review, but this is a great album. The first review said it best by the lyrics are deep yet they are and powerful. Everyone shines on this record just like all there others.

If you are wondering to buy this album and you are new to Visionaries this is a fine album to start with, but you just have to love how much they have approved over the last 11 years with 4 fantastic records.

So in the end just buy it. It shines beyond what you see on the mainstream rap scene, such as The Game, 50 Cent and all of those have nothing on the Visionaries and all other underground artists.
