1st off, the beats on Never Better sound far better suited for POS than the stuff he was working with (that I've personally heard anyway)on his other albums. Production credits name Lazerbeak, MK Larada, Paper Tiger & the man himself who handled the majority of the beats (all from the Doomtree collective) and they all seem to be sharply tuned into POS' vision for this album because they delivered perfectly.
Alright, so lyrically POS is in top form here, and his delivery is razor sharp. I've heard people complaining about his delivery, and after giving this a solid few listens I have no idea how they get there. This dude is a beast, and he's strictly talking about real life topics here. If you want fantasy raps about flashy cars, spending money like a fool, or any of that other nonsense most rappers these days constantly babble on about then look elsewhere, you're certainly not going to find any of that here. So on the same token we've got plenty of rappers out there riding on the common man persona which can be just as boring as the dudes rapping about their cars, shoes and their harem of gold diggers.Read more ›
I am not familiar with is previous work, but his work on "Never Better" is very solid! As a rapper the man has a good flow and a style that is a little abstract, but you can still relate to. That is what sets him apart on the mic as he manages to be abstract but still gets his point across so it is very accessible.
Musically the man hooks up some dope stuff here. On some songs it does have rock feel, other songs have a pop feel, and still others really can't be classified. He works well with the music and it is definitely something most rap fans have now heard before.
So far, one of 2009's best CD and worth the purchase if you are looking for something new and fresh!
I don't do the download thing much, I still actually buy CD's (so I guess I'm old school now) and I went through quite a deal of trouble trying to find amongst the last remaining record stores in town who was holding Never Better. When I finally found it, it was all worth it because P.O.S. really fills his shoes and Hip Hop/Punk vision on this album. He has managed to seemlessly blend the two genres to create something you have never heard before you heard him. Necro has attempted to blend hip hop and metal but P.O.S.'s attempt to blend two opposite genres just feels so much more natural.
I have added a new song to the very short tracklist of my life's soundtrack and it's "Out Of Category". He explains the life of a black kid into punk and skating who is socially caught in between a rock and a hard place.
All the beats here are eccentric and proves P.O.S. upgrades his repertoire everytime he puts out something new, and his lyrics have never been more genuine than they are here. It's still a little early in the year to name Never Better a classic, but it's definately a nominee and the best album of 2009 so far by far. Buy Never Better right now.
