3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed after all the hype, September 25, 2009
This review is from: Survival Skills (Audio CD)
Everyone was praising this album on a hip hop forum that I frequent, so I bought it at Best Buy for $7.99. Gotta say I am not feeling this album that much at all. It's not a bad album, it just lacks standout cuts to make it memorable. To be honest there are five songs that I am feeling- Connection (dope beat by MoSS), Think Of All The Things, One Shot, Murder 1, and Past, Present, Future (9th with the typical ill soulful stuff). The other songs range from mediocre-decent. The Black Milk beats on this really disappoint, not the typical hard hitting soul loops at all. That is the main problem with this album, the production. A lot of it is too simplistic, like the opening Illmind produced "Survival Skills." So bland. KRS and Buckshot still have those dope styles and lyrics, KRS in particular sounds invigorated and his cadence is on point. Unfortunately, the music does not match. Don't believe the hype, no more than a decent album. 7/10
