Panacea's sophomore effort, The Scenic Rout, is a journey. Yes it is a hip hop LP, but more than that, it is a surreal, deeply musical and incredibly unique concept album. From start to finish, the listener is able to follow the evolution of not only the character on the journey, but of Panacea as artists. The result is something so new that its creativity will intrigue even today's most jaded listeners.

This is an album you can listen to front to back, it's an amazing project. K-Murdock's production is like a breath of fresh air, it's original and musical. You really have to listen to this album as a whole, if you skip songs you are certainly depriving yourself of all it has to offer. Song's like "Epiphany" switch up at the end and make you wish the last 8 bars was an entire track!! I love it! "Flashback To Stardom" is probably my favorite track and one of the best songs I've ever heard period.
Raw Poetic may take some getting used to with his quick and sporadic rhyming style, but once you get a feel for him, he fits perfectly with the musical backdrops provided by Murdock.
I could go on about this album but I'm sure it's evident from the other reviews that these guys are the real deal. Please, support these guys, as they are 2 of the few hiphop artists actually creating great original music these days.
However, I'm pulling for this album. After listening to it, front to back, and analyzing the messages... Just mind blowing. The beats are a concept in themselves and hit a soft spot in my heart. Especially hearing elements from original and sampled masterpieces (example: Between Earth and Sky). Not to mention the fact that Raw Poetic can spit!! I love the story and how it Progresses, and Degresses...
Please take a listen, will not be regretted!
I have not been able to take this out of my cd player in the car since I got it, one of the rare albums released these days that you can listen to from start to finish.
It just has that flow, very smooth sounds. And it has all the elements that are pleasant to a hip-hop purists ears.
Samples, dusty beats and creative poetic wordplay....but still so musical.
It is summertime here in Melbourne, Australia....and this is my soundtrack of the summertime.
If Panacea aint known and recognized after this album then cats are definately sleepin!!
The flow is old school at the same time is very lyrical and modern, its sort of alike KRS meets Talib but even that doesn't fully describe it, I'm not sure there anyone like him currently in hip-hop.
The production is interesting and experimental without sacrificing Rawness and compliments the MC the way producers should.
This album does indeed feel like a journey. Your taken from beginning to end and come out different on the other side.
