Editorial Reviews

Grieves and producer Budo give you fifteen songs of sample-free, melody-driven, analog warmth. Showcasing Grieves' timeless song writing abilities, this record is a unique synthesis of live instrumentation and vintage textures that transcend genre boundaries. With themes of pain, humor, and emotional turmoil, all illustrated in Grieves' wry style, 88 Keys and Counting provides the portrait of an artist with nearly limitless potential. While self-released in 2008 and mainly a digital release, Rhymesayers will re-issue the album in anticipation of Grieves' 2010 release.

Format: Audio CD
Grieves & Budo's 88 Keys and Counting is an album worth owning. It is an album I continuously go back to in my collection. Grieves mixes a witty, intelligent flow mixed with sing song choruses. His voice procures has a subtle, comforting and warm timbre while still ripping up each and every 16 bar frame with profound lyrical ability and classic Emcee skill you expect and need from good, quality Hip Hop. I mean, their are signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment.- C'mon.
The Instrumentals on 88 Keys provide a sometimes somber landscape, and enable you to feel both artist's emotion as they take you on strange yet familiar journey through one of Hip Hops soon to be classic records. When I first heard the album, it made me feel like a I had finally heard something I was yearning for in Hip Hop. Growing so tired of the same material, this album was refreshing and I now crave constantly for new material from this duo.
The sound on this album is very well polished. The mixing is unique and the two of them have really begun to gather and mold a sound of their own. This is due to the engineering as well as Budo's method of production. He uses a lot of analog gear and instruments, as well as playing the trumpet himself we hear on the album. This to me means everything. I have a Bachelors Degree in Audio and Music Production, and recognize and appreciate and good producer. I also have been playing Saxophone for 8 years, guitar, drums, and piano, and I produce and write my own Hip Hop. I know good Hip Hop when I hear it.
Personal highlights on the album are "Catapults", "Kings", "October In The Graveyard", "Greedy Bitch", "Dead In The Water", and "Lockdown", but like I said, the entire album is great.

Grieves has always been a lyrical mastermind and now that he is signed at Rhymesayers Entertainment he is getting the credit that he deserves. This album consists of lyrics that will change your life as well as things that sound so good they get stuck in your head for days. The production on the album is top-notch and goes perfectly with Grieves's style. I strongly encourage everyone to purchase this album and support independent hip-hop!

Grieves is an artist who is positive, thinks poetically, and sings in ways that don't promote hate, violence, drugs, or any of the crap all these other "rappers" do. It's funny - I wish I would've had someone like him to grow up to. Instead, I had Eminem, Jay Z, The Game, and a lot of other negative - I wanna sell drugs/kill this/hate that group.

Granted they are good - just selling hate. If you want to see a good rapper who doesn't have to promote that - Grieves is your artist. I love the guy!

First head Grieves on Pandora, and found myself skipping songs to hear his. Cant get enough, Definitely not the techno beats and drum loops you hear from most major recording artists of the genre. This music has Heart, Soul, Depth, and the Personal feelings behind the songs that has been missing from music for a long time.
