when this album was released in 1997, atmosphere was truly an underground group consisting of 2 mc's (slug and spawn) and their producer (ANT). this album, dropping before spawn left the group, is atmosphere at its finest. ant blesses the album with gloriously dark beats, perfectly complementing the pre-whining-about-girls slug and spawn rhymes. great great album, and a very nostalgic one for me. fans whose first experiences with atmosphere were god loves ugly or seven's travels might not recognize the style of this album, but in my opinion it is their best, dark, grimey, and perfect.
id also like to take this time to respond to the review below. as a black man, i take offense to this review which groups nas (who released one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, "illmatic") into a bling-bling category and makes a list of exclusively white hip-hop artists which supposedly represent intelligent hip-hop. i dont mean to say that these are not great artists, but your list reflects an ignorance on your part of other great intelligent hip-hop that also reflects the black struggle, such as cannibal ox, krs-one, binary star, black star, the coup, and many others. thank you

If u love dark, boom-shattering, grimey, raw, and old-school hip hop, then Overcast is for you. Of all the Atmosphere albums, Overcast is by far the most pure, most hardcore hip hop sounding album. If you want your UNDERGROUND hip hop albums to be dark, chilling, and grimey, u must cop this album.

Slug's flow is perfect on Overcast. He got more 'talky' in his later albums and less with the smooth rhyming. Basically i enjoyed all his albums, it's just that Overcast is by far the greatest.

i'll rank this album right up there with the UNDERGROUND greats: Aceyalone: All Balls Don't Bounce, Deltron 3030, & Pete Rock/CL Smooth: Main Ingredient.

My ranking of the Atmosphere albums:

1) Overcast

2) God Loves Ugly tied with Lucy Ford

3) Seven's Travels

This is the first Atmosphere album. My friend from St. Paul turned me onto this stuff way back when and for a while there I was a Rhymesayers fanatic. I hate to recommend hard to find and out of print stuff, but I would highly recommend any of the old Headshots mixtapes if you can find them. Particularly volume Seven which is a Slug album from start to finish and by far his best. Overcast! came out when these guys were hungry and most of the Rhymesayers releases during this era are solid, e.g. The dynospectrum. Slug, Spawn, and Ant complimented each other well and as much as I find Spawn annoying sometimes he brings Slug down-to earth. Kinda the way Big Juss complimented EL-P. All in all this is a good record. It's the kind of record I made certain everyone I knew heard, since, at the time, I was the only one in my area code who had heard these guys. Slug is a very skilled emcee, and I think it's unfair to lump him into backpacker hip hop (whatever that means anyway). Take the Deep Puddle Dynamics record for example. Listening to that album, it's so overwhelmingly clear how much more skilled he is than Sole, Alias or especially Dose One. I still have the first three Sad Clown Bad Dub's in my collection and a bunch of old Headsots tapes. Recently, I found myself going back and jamming Overcast! and it really is a solid album. It never reached the exhaulted heights of Aceyalone or Common (and by that I mean ressurection era Common) or Hiero, but few do. This is a good album and a worthwhile purchase. If you only buy one Atmosphere album, make it this one.

some may argue the fact that a new age album could be nothing but noise. With Overcast: Atmosphere, you are getting a hypnotic mixture of beats and poetry. This may be one of the only albums that could be listened to reapetedly with out the slightest change in satisfaction with every ryhme and hit of the drum. If you are looking for an album that you can listen to while you party, drive, talk on the phone, or just go to sleep, this is the album. Atmosphere isn't for black kids, and it isnt for white kids...Atmosphere isn't Rap music, hip hop music, or rock 'n' roll music...it's life music. So allow yourself to slip in to an ecstasy, and have a conversation with the lyricist.

Overcast is the perfect first album...not counting "headshots"...that any hip hop group could release. It's been called "life music", and that pretty much sums it up. The beats are much more laid back than anything else that they've put out, and WAY less..."emo"...for lack of a better word. Spawn isn't up to par with slug, but very few people are, so its not a very big deal, and he doesn't stand out or anything. All the songs are amazing, well produced, and essentially perfect. but again, this is not atmosphere's best. Lucy Ford is by far the ultimate atmosphere cd. but even still, this album is not mediocre..or anywhere remotley close to that. buy this now and cry tears of joy

After my husband told me the name of his favorite Atmosphere cd and that he had lost it and hadn't been able to find a replacement anywhere - I hopped on Amazon, searched the title, bought it and had it delivered in 2 days. Definitely worth it to watch his mouth drop open and ask me where and how I found it! Thanks Amazon!
