5.0 out of 5 stars The Name of the Album Says It All, July 2, 2004
This review is from: Multi-Platinum Debut Lp (Audio CD)
Another great Def Jux release for the backpackers.
This is the release from MC's Wind N Breeze and Alaska (both part of the mega indie hiphop group - the Atom's Family) along with production from DJ paWL.
And of course executive produced by El P (what do you expect - it is his label, and his name is El Producto)
Okay, (what to expect)
Expect:
(1) Kick @ss, fast-paced lyrical assualt on almost every track.
(2) Also expect addictive, head bobbin' beats with DJ paWL doing a lot of turnable work (mostly scratching and rubs, but a couple of transforms.)
There, also, is a lovely guest appearance by the older school hiphop legend - Sadat X (from Brand Nubian)on the appropriately named track - "Sadat X Appears Courtesy of".
[And FYI, Brand Nubian (including Grand Puba) are working on a new album.]
The track "Saved By The Beezy" was pretty cool too. It sounded real old school - from the lyrical delivery to the "Rock the Bells" sample in the beat.
But there were two things I didn't like about the album:
(1) the beginning beat of the track "Hangar 18 and the Temple of Doom"
(2) (even though I liked the track) the chorus on "Barhoppin'". It sounded awkward and is on a higher volume level than the rest on the track.
But, I wouldn't let those two small things discourage you.
This is an outstanding album.
If you support the underground - this is your album.
If not, I can't help you.
