Biography

In the three years since Atmosphere's dropped a full length record on the world, they've been far from stagnant, staying at the top of their game in every respect. For the better part of two years, Atmosphere toured the globe in support of their critically acclaimed - and #5 Billboard Top 200 charting - album, When LIfe Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.

By reading through the various reviews you can pretty easily tell whether you would like this latest release or not. As I see it there are two types of Atmosphere listeners. One type are drawn to Atmosphere for Slug's charisma, the other type likes Slug's more introspective and intellectual side '(Ant's beats are a given I think). I'm more part of the second group, and after listening to the album front to back four times (which is already a good sign) I can safely say that this is my favorite release since I first came to this duo with Lucy Ford. Though I like a lot of the fun and clever songs that you hear on the Felt Tributes, and the more hard hitting and upbeat songs last few releases, what really gets me is when Slug sits down to really write something introspective and maybe even depressing. I feel like Slug spent a longer time with the writing process on this one than in the past.

With that said, I really enjoyed the music on this album, and music it is. The days of simply using some tight hip hop loops seem to be something of the past for Atmosphere, they are branching out. Most of the songs use live instruments, have a lot of crescendos and breaks which gives the songs more complexity and less of a head nodding groove than a past albums. If you like hip-hop artists that are taking more musically complex directions rather than being devoted to some stuff you can slap in the car and feel the base thump, I would recommend this highly.

Also I think that this is more of a cohesive album than the previous two. Slug deals with some consistent themes in this album including addiction, hypocrisy, disappointments, and the need to grow up and deal with them.

I've been an Atmosphere fan since 2003, and seeing them flourish over the years has been an exciting process. The strategic approach counting down to the release of their 6th full-length album "When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Sh** Gold", is among the best marketing scheme's you'll ever see spawned by an independent record label. So good in fact, that is has seemingly stripped them of underground status as the album debuted at an astonishing #5 on the Billboard Top 200 alongside other fluffy pop artists such as Mariah Carey & Ashlee Simpson.

Leading up to it's release, Atmosphere released a string of 4 excellent 5-song EPs, and the undeniably dope full-length "Strictly Leakage" for FREE through the official Rhymesayers web site. In addition to creating a plethora of solid material, Slug & Ant tirelessly promoted their new album through a series 10-minute You Tube episodes entitled "Paint It Gold", where they answered endless questions from fans throughout the world, and also provided them an outlet for that extra promotion they needed for the album.

In all actuality, the formula for "Lemons" is not sonically different from most Atmosphere records. Ant's beats creep into a bit more synth-heavy territory on some tracks, and on the whole, comes through with some of his cleanest, and most memorable set of beats to date. Slug is also maturing very nicely. His songwriting skills and his close-knit connection with his fans have reached an all-time high. I have a hard time thinking of a rapper that would be more in touch with the game of hip-hop today than Slug is. He seems to stay truly inspired, and it comes through in his writing and delivery. The album does slightly favor conscious, introspective material over straight bangers.
