I'm as big a fan of 90s hip hop as anyone but this record reveals some of the common flaws in that genre. There is a lot of dense rapping on the tracks, but the words are often hard to make out clearly, so that's self defeating. You don't have distinctive sounding voices like, say, Guru's or Tone Loc's or Snoop Dog's, and while the beats are funky the tracks are pretty samey, there are a lot of them all following the same formula of drum machine beat, a few samples, and lots and lots and lots of words. I kept one track, but these guys aren't hip hop standouts for me.

SOM has taken hip-hop back a few steps, to an era whn rap got no respect from Rolling Stone or the radio or the grammys or the NBA or MLB. Then rap moved up and it became part and parcel of popualr music. That's because it got better. Hey, I can respect the keeping of a tradition, but one must have knowledge of why that tradition dies out in the first place. the free-flow era of rap dies out because rap became the arena and progenitor of the most significant musical breakthrough of the current decade: electronic music - studio music. Music that is assembled rather than played. Souls of M misses the point that music propells rap: rap is not spoken word.
