Had to give the album itself 4 stars, but a word of caution if you're going to buy it from amazon: The MP3 download is the "clean" (i.e. molested) version of the album, even though it's not labeled as such. Not cool.

With luck you found your way to this download option rather than the censored version.

If you did, congrats, this album provides on all fronts.

I already read someone knocking the album because of some autotune used extremely sparingly on... 1 track. I don't really get that, but if you run across that same review there's really nothing to worry about. It's like... not even an issue. Anyway, it's on "How We Land," and it's Justin from Bon Iver singing, not Stefon behind it.

I have listened to the album all day while working earlier today (release day), and I like it as much as "Never Better." The only one gripe I have is that I do genuinely miss the raw snare drums on this album. My absolute favorite P.O.S tracks are "Purexed" and "Drumroll" from their "Never Better" album. That sound just doesn't re-emerge aside from the opening track on "We Don't Even Live Here." Regardless, all the tracks are still varied and expertly sung, have great musical hooks and great beats. I have favorites, but I haven't found that track that I skip every time it plays, I like them all. None of the guest stars are overbearing and are welcome on all the tracks they are on.

As for those favorites - "How We Land," and "They Can't Come," are definitely high on the list found on the album. P.O.S is still at the top of their game. If you are a fan I doubt there's much (for a reasonable person) to be disappointed by on this one.

From the electro stylings of 'Bumper' all the way to the screams of 'Piano Hits' each song seems well calculated and well articulated. I've been a fan of P.O.S. for some time and this release seems to be a sort of breakthrough album for him as an artist.

The painful part of this record is that the noise floor is high at the beginning of each side. It also seems as though it was not mastered for vinyl, but I have only listened to parts of the album. The reason for not listening to it throughly prior to writing this review is that it has been prone to skip and loop. 'Where we land' is impossible to get through without lifting the needle which frustrates me so much I skip the rest of side A. The plastic sleeve accompanying the record was quick to fall apart and I'm afraid to take out the poster included in fear that it may never fit back into the packaging.

That being said, if you want something pretty to show to your friends for street cred this is your ticket. If you're hoping to have a great pressing of a great album be ready for disappointment.

I've had this album looping since I bought it; it's amazing. POS brings his signature wit and real-world frustrations to roost among strong beats and solid production. Slightly slicker and more polished than his 2009 album "Never Better," it's also shorter and tighter and completely addictive. To paraphrase his first lines of the opening track, "Bumper," he took his time with it, pushed his limits and made it better.

He's working with some of his Doomtree collaborators here (Lazerbeak, Cecil Otter), but also plays well with others:
- "How We Land" is the attention-grabber with Justin Vernon; its radio-ready keyboard and chorus construction make for an entry-level first single.
- "Wanted/Wasted" features the charming Astronautalis (a guest on "Never Better" as well), and is my favorite track on the album. It is relaxed in vibe but biting in commentary on race and posturing. Also features a "hooray" echo on the line "first black president/hooray for history" and the phrase "Doomtree hoopty," which make my life.
- "They Can't Come" has Sims, a local friend/Doomtree member. Best line: "What's the point of a living you can't trust?"
- "Get Down" brings in Mike Mictlan, another Doomtree bro. Something about this track makes me think of the early '90s; maybe it's the high-pitched sound loop that sounds like an old printer, or maybe it's the reference to "Shimmy Shimmy Ya." They are having fun on this joint.
- Isaac Gale screams his way through "Piano Hits," a solid closer that helps remind us that POS does not hang out with people who are satisfied with the status quo.

"Lock-picks, Knives, Bricks and Bats" is his angry screed about being "raised in the Midwest/where they hate with a grin.

You can feel his enthusiasm. This album is awesome. For me that means that of the 13 tracks, more than half are "hits" for me. I pretty much only listen to music while driving, so I need rockin' tracks, and this album delivers. The beats are amazing, delivered often by Lazerbeak. The only thing I'd say is that the Deluxe Edition is not really all that worth it. If you are a Busdriver fan and must own all of his stuff (which apparently I am since I do, though I never listen to him), then maybe it's worth it, but I'd say tracks 11-13 are skippers for me. Since two of those tracks are on the Deluxe Edition, I'd say you'll be satisfied with the regular edition. I just wanted to "have it all" and support the artists.

He delivers his lines like a brick through a window, and they are catchy enough that they stay in my head for days after listening. One of the best albums I've picked up recently. So, if you are into underground hip-hop, pick this up.
