5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Sun, June 2, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Good Sun (MP3 Music)
I picked this album up on a humbug and my GOODNESS this may very well be the best hip hop album I've heard this year and that's in the wake of the new Reflection Eternal, "Revolutions Per Minute" (which is a great album) and the B.o.B. "The Adventures of Bobby Ray," which is also no slouch. "The Good Sun" offers you beats that come out of left field but hit dead center and a lyrical content and dexterity that you probably haven't heard since Eminem or Pharoahe Monch. The album cover itself reminded me of Sun Ra's "Space is the place," or Grover Washington Jr's "Mister Magic" and in the vein of those two artists this album is more a piece of artistic expression than just hip hop to make you dance or bounce or whatever. This is the thinking man's hip hop album you can't check your brain at the door and just snap your way through it, you can't sip on sizurp and mind haze your way through it, you've got to tune it in, turn it on and that other stuff, drop it out (shout out to Timothy Leary).
