5.0 out of 5 stars Spacey-sounding beats fit with the album title, catchy and eclectic, September 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Man On The Moon: The End Of Day (Explicit Version) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
I picked this album up on a whim because of its $3.99 first day release price, and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a fan of main stream hip hop, more the alternative stuff (the Roots, Talib Kweli, Common, etc.) but the production and overall story concept of this album was pretty interesting. The beats are sparse with a lot of spacey sounds but a lot of them are really catchy (hear "Alive"), and the interludes with Common are interesting because they narrate the story of a stoner, and all the songs fit into different acts within the album. This is the first hip hop album in a long time that is more enjoyable when you listen to the whole album in entirety, it's a steal at $3.99.

Dark side of the moon, really? Its a classic, but that's taking it a bit far! I like the analogy, but i think this album is more akin to an album like David Bowie's "ziggy stardust."

HAHA You really do have to learn how to read.... "Dark side of the moon FOR HIP HOP MUSIC" ok you got the analogy.... bravo. Ziggy maybe but as a classic rock person... I wouldn't be insulted by the PF comparison. Bowie was too extravagant even compared to this. IMHO

I haven't heard Ziggy Stardust yet, so maybe you're right. I just thought it had that same spaced-out feeling and theme that DSOTM had. Of all the hip hop albums that had come out so far, I still think this one reminded me of Dark Side, unless you would suggest another one in the same way.

Nowhere near the legendary status of DSOTM, but I get your point, and I have to disagree. Hip hop's Dark Side came along quite a while ago with the Roots. This album is a solid effort but it falls short in the end.

Maybe it was just the spacey feel that invoked DSOTM for me. I love the Roots also, which of their albums would you say invokes Dark Side?
